Happy Monday, y’all!! Today starts the last week of my surgery rotation and I seriously feel like I just started. Not that I’m wishing my time away, but the end of this rotation means this is my last week living in Raleigh. I’ll be back for our board review week in October and for graduation week in December but as of next Monday, I’m officially in Charlotte for good!!! I have been looking forward to this day for soooo long. Anyways, I’m linking up with my girls Biana & Meghan so let’s jump right into my weekend recap 🙂
This weekend, Sarah and I hopped in the car and took a little 4 hour road trip to Black Mountain, NC. Our friend Randy’s parents have a timeshare in Montreat so a bunch of us took advantage of a fun little mountain getaway. It was much needed!
We arrived just in time to enjoy some yummy food including hamburgers & hotdogs and one of the guys even made his very own mint chocolate chip ice cream cookie sandwiches. OMG they were sooooo good! We were going to go out the second night, but opted to relax instead and decided to order in. The pizza from My Father’s Pizza and it did not disappoint.
On Saturday, we went hiking on one of the nearby trails and then hung out by the rocks in the creek. It felt so good outside- the temps were in the low 60s (compared to high 80s in Raleigh) so we definitely embraced the beginning of fall. We even saw a few leaves starting to change!
We didn’t do anything too fancy- just hung out, ate lots of food, hiked, and played some games. A lot of games actually- Heads Up and Phrase Party sure made for a lot of laughs. Playing board games (or phone games these days) is something I always look forward to when traveling with a group of people. Before we left yesterday, Sarah & I stopped at the cutest little restaurant for brunch and it hit the spot… the French toast was on point!
Of course I’m sad that the weekend is over and I’ll be squeezing in some more surgeries and LOTS of studying this week since my end-of-rotation test is on Thursday. Hope y’all had a great weekend as well and thanks for stopping by 🙂
