July 2017 Favorites

It’s hard to believe we’re 7 days deep into August. Seriously, where has 2017 gone? I’ve spent so much of the year applying for my dietetic internship, waiting to know if I matched to it, celebrating that match, and then waiting for the internship to start. It felt like a lifetime away. But I start my internship in TWO DAYS Y’ALL! How in the world is that possible? I feel like it’s still two months away. Or at least I’m still in July… Not August. July felt like a whirlwind for me. We had a lot of family events in June, plus we moved at the end of the month. All free time in July was spent trying to unpack all those boxes and get things set up. I quit my job at the end of July for some time off before the internship. I had a lot of mixed feelings […]

So, What is a Dietetic Internship Anyways?

“So, what is a dietetic internship anyways?” is probably the single most question I’ve been asked since matching to my dietetic internship back in April 2017. Actually, if I’m being honest no one even knows it’s called a dietetic internship. Unless you’re actively trying to work towards a dietetic internship or you’ve survived one already, most people don’t really know what a dietetic internship entails or even what it means. Which I totally get people not understanding. I barely understood the process until my last year of college and it’s what I was actively trying to do with my life.  If you’re reading this, it means you’re obviously curious about the dietetic internship. So let’s jump in! So, what is a dietetic internship? The dietetic internship is designed to provide, at minimum, 1,200 hours of supervised practice. The time given to complete your hours differs from internship to internship. Some are […]

Weekend Day Trip to Morgantown WV

This past weekend Aaron and I went to Morgantown with my parents to see Aaron’s parents. We were meeting them for dinner, but we got there mid-afternoon to explore the town and enjoy the day. We drove around and did some sight-seeing. Aaron and I always enjoy seeing the new updates. It’s crazy how much has changed in just the two years since we moved–and even the few months since our last visit! I barely even recognized University Ave, a street I called home for three years. I love and miss Morgantown dearly, but I can’t imagine living there again right now where I’m at in life. All the sight seeing definitely had us both excited to move to a new city with more to offer though! I’m exited to see where we land after the internship is over. Hopefully in the Carolina’s. 😉 After driving around, we ended up […]

Leaving My Job & Preparing For The Dietetic Internship

I honestly don’t even know where to start about leaving my job. I loved working at WIC so much and I’m definitely going to miss it. My time there really fueled my love for working in community nutrition and I can’t wait to return to the field after my internship. My final day was last week. But from where I traveled for work, I had “final” days at each site. At Cabell, my friend Shelley made me delicious mini cherry vanilla chocolate chip muffins and double chocolate cake. My goodbye party was at Kanawha though. This was my home site. They threw a Mexican themed pot luck. My work sister and friend, Kadija, has been on maternity leave. She stopped by for the lunch and brought my favorite kind of baby–a big, fat, breastfed baby. It was so good to spend time with everyone. I hadn’t been at Kanawha lately, […]

Recent Eats #1

As a food blogger and just over all lover of food, I take a lot of food pictures. I’ve gotten it down to a science over the years. It doesn’t take me super long–just one quick shot. What I haven’t gotten down is actually posting all the photos. That takes a lot more time. Pulling up each app, crafting a caption, all those hashtags… I get caught up in actually eating and enjoying the food in front of me. After the meal and socializing is over, I’ve already forgotten to post my picture most of the time… because it’s on to the next event. Life man. But these eats are too good not to share. I mean that’s the entire reason I snapped the photos, right? So here are some recent eats I’ve enjoyed so far this summer. If you’re from the Charleston WV area you already know this gorgeous […]
