an eventful night

last night
had some sucky moments, in that 4 admissions rolled in after 2 AM, leaving me très fatiguée today. on the other hand, there was some seriously exciting good news, in that the lovely and fabulous siobhan gave birth to this beautiful strapping young lad, ciaran. CONGRATULATIONS S+J!

i would post a picture, but i don't want to be all paparazzi-like. maybe they already have an exclusive deal with US weekly or something. anyway, getting the happy news made my night a lot better. perspective, you know?

a happy birthday shout out to commenter 'da', who happens to be my father, and an all-around awesome person. now june 2, 3, and 4th will all have entries in my calendar!

on a much lesser note
in other news, i got a dress that i ordered from anthropologie on super-sale the other day post-call (it was by velvet and cost a mere $30). in person, it is even more shapeless than i imagined, but i thought it might work cinched up. thoughts? ignore the wrinkliness, as that can be fixed. as well as the bathroom backdrop. it's our only mirror!

ps: josh i know you are probably going to hate it!

and finally
look what came for me in the mail today! it's my first unsolicited blog-related freebie, which sort of warms my heart a little, i have to admit. josh and i will do an official taste test, after which i will put this stuff to work: i'm seeing some seriously delicious cocktails in my future.

and i'm off
to see the decemberists with my sister! it does happen to be a disgusting night out for a drive to raleigh. if i don't get chewed up and spit out by a tornado or swept away in a flash flood, it should be a fun night.

reading: all about acute chest syndrome in sickle cell while on call.

flossing: no. i didn't even brush until i got home . . . (yes i know = disgusting.)


  1. The dress is adorable - perfect for summer and the belt looks awesome! I'm excited to get Pom juice (coupons, because I'm Canadian) in the mail!

  2. i LOVE the dress!!!!

  3. I think the dress is cute with the cinch!

    That is a lot of Pom juice! I can only imagine the delicious drinks that are yet to come!

    Me too! Me too! I got an email from POM. It hasn't come yet. I am very excited.

  5. Maybe add a necklace? Something white like beads or something.

    Nice score with the POM. That stuff is good but too expensive for me.

  6. I think it works cinched.

    I think the dress is super cute and fun! HOpe your dad has a great birthday.

  9. Thanks for the shout-out, Sarah! I must say I've never thought of myself as awesome. I think you're more than a bit biased on that score:)
    L, da
    P.S. Attila, I was wondering the same thing--how DO you pronounce Ciaran?

  10. My friends were drinking champagne with a splash of Pom juice last weekend. I, of course, did not partake but it looked great!

  11. I LOVE this dress with the belt. It is gorgeous and looks great on you. And I love Pom juice too. Lucky girl!!
