Easter Weekend

Feeling lots of feelings today as it is my last week of rotations!!! It’s honestly a little hard to process it all because it’s flown by so quickly. I hate saying that because it’s like “duh, time flies”, but really this has been like a flash of light. Maybe my brain is a bit fried so I am having a hard time thinking back on it all, but I am looking forward to having some time for processing and reflecting. 

For now, let’s recap the weekend.

Terry and I went to a lovely Good Friday service a church on Friday night. We also neared the end of 13 Reasons Why. 

I went running on Saturday morning and then to work and then the real treat of the weekend -> seeing my Nashville friends- Paige and Andrew. 

Paige was in town to see her family, so the four of us took a quick trip to Charleston to spend some time together. The water was lovely, the weather was delightfully warm.

We stopped for dinner at Groucho’s and all grabbed sandwiches. I went with the Chicken Critter that had grilled chicken topped with herbed slaw. Whole grain mustard for dipping!

We got home at a reasonable hour, but did an unreasonable thing and stayed up until 2:30 am (yikes!) to finish the series mentioned above. I have mixed feelings about the premise of show, but thought the acting/dialogue was powerful and gripping. Obviously the storyline drags you in since we had to finish it and stay up way beyond my bedtime. 

Needless to say, Sunday morning when my alarm clock when off at 7 am, I was thinking “really?”.

I woke up early to get started on the carrot cake that I planned to make for dessert following our Easter lunch. After making the cake, I whipped up  blundered a banana pancake. No worries, taste remained thankfully. 

Terry, my niece Abbi, and I all really enjoyed the church service. Easter Sundays always feel special (even without a basket from the Easter bunny). 

We had a yummy lunch and then spent the afternoon hanging out with my parents. The carrot cake got everyone’s approval! I used Sally’s recipe.  

Now it’s time to gear up for the week… the last week I’ll ever spend in a hospital as an intern!

Now you tell me-

Do you have any Easter traditions?

    1. Carrot Cake is my husbands fav too!
      I am honestly not that familiar with Isle of Palms, but in Charleston I love The Early Bird Cafe and Lost Dog Cafe. Lost Dog is at Folly Beach which where we usually go to swim. It would be a good place to hang for the day!

  1. That show pulled me in too. I finished it in like… 4 days? lol. Very powerful.

    Glad you had a good weekend and got to see some friends! Always the best reconnecting with friends you haven’t seen in a bit. 🙂 happy monday kate!

  2. So happy for you!! I will be praying for you as you go through your last week as an intern!!! What an accomplishment! You are such a blessing!

  3. Wooooo look at us both ending a big part of our lives this week. I am so excited for you. I’m a little too anxious for myself, so I am going to give you my share of the excitement.
    I really wanted to make a carrot cake this weekend but then my schedule got all taken up and I didn’t get ANY. Luckily I think there is no deadline for carrot cake, so still have it on my list to make in the next couple weeks. Sally’s recipes are stellar.
    I’ve been hearing so many things about this 13 Reasons show floating around… I need to look into it.
    Happy Easter to you and Terry!
