LIFE // My Morning Routine

One of the things I have struggled with in the past is getting out of bed in the morning with enough time to actually prepare mentally, spiritually, or physically for the day that lies ahead.  Recently, one of my favorite life and style bloggers, Krystal over at The Feisty House shared her morning routine and that inspired me to really create my own and be consistent with it.  And when I tell you it’s been life changing thus far over the past 3-4 weeks….it’s amazing.

T’S MORNING ROUTINE

5:15 AM ~ Wake up, Pray, Have Devotion

6:00 AM ~ Post Devotional Excerpt to Social Media

6:05 AM ~ Jogging (Outdoors or on Treadmill) – Sun/Tue/Thur

6:45 AM ~ Make Smoothie (if not grabbing breakfast at work)

7:00 AM ~ Shower & Get Ready for Work

7:45 AM ~ Leave for work (oh the luxury of living 8 minutes away from work….)

And because my internal clock has gotten used to waking up at 5:30 AM I’m waking up pretty close to that even on the weekends, which has really made for very productive Sabbath and Sunday mornings!  It’s pretty awesome.  Overall, sticking to my morning routine has made me a lot more productive, energized, and just….less stressed. And I thank God for that.

Do you guys have morning routines? Or even nighttime routines?  Feel free to share them by commenting down below! I’d love to hear how you start your day and unwind before bed.

As always, thanks so much for stopping by the blog.  I really appreciate all of your support.

Love and God Bless,

LIFE & STYLE // Peds Residency Graduation

On Tuesday June 9, 2015 I was one of the first graduates of the inaugural class of the Children’s Hospital at Lehigh Valley Hospital’s Pediatric Residency Program.  I can’t express enough how grateful, proud, humbled I am to have been granted the privilege to work and learn at such an amazing institution with such wonderful human beings. I will truly miss my lovely colleagues at LVHN and I am so thankful for EVERYTHING that everyone has done! Definitely would not have made it through residency without them and the grace of GOD! 😊


  


      

Missguided definitely came through for me once again with this graduation outfit!

    

Black jumpsuit – Missguided  (similar HERE) / Gold plated belt – Missguided / Black strapped sandals with Gold T-strap – Forever21 (similar from Missguided)

Looking forward to the next chapter…. 🙂

Love and God Bless,

LIFE & STYLE // #Largo05Reunion

This past weekend I had the super fun privilege of celebrating 10 years of post-high school success with my classmates from the Largo High School Class of ’05!  Mind you, I was late as all get out (nap turned sleep…oh for shame…) but I made it!  And I’m so glad I did! image

It was so nice seeing how great everyone looked (we got some FAHN class members I tell you 😉 ) and just hearing about how successful everyone has been.

BROADWAY WEEK // The Lion King

Well hello hello!  Yes, I’m back from oblivion. I have absolutely missed blogging and sharing my life with you all. But I’ll skip the disclaimers and get right to the good stuff….today’s blog post! That’s kinda why you’re actually here isn’t it?! Exactly….lol

So I finally….FINALLY made it to New York to see a Broadway Show!  And not just any show, probably one of THE best: THE LION KING!  Shout out to my lovely lady friends Nat, Lee, and Jeannee for the invite (and to God for allowing me to have Memorial Day weekend off)!
