I hope you guys all had a great weekend! Chris was home in between his rotations. He just spent 6 weeks in peds and now is going to go do ob-gyn. This is the last away rotation of the year so I'm really happy about that. If nothing else, it's kind of like practice for next year. We're pretty independent people so we do alright being apart, but it does get lonely some nights. Guess it's something I'll have to get used to though with at least a year of being 10+ hours apart. It's a sacrifice that I hope works out in the end.

We spent part of the weekend sorting out items to sell or donate - we're moving out of our current house at the end of June and we have so much stuff we've carried around over the years. We sold $50 worth of books at Half-Price books and donated a giant box of his clothes to Goodwill. We then drove to the outlet mall 45 minutes away...mostly because J.Crew Factory was having a 50% off everything sale. Naturally I wanted everything in the store but I only walked out with this skirt (also seen here on instagram) and this blue tee. I think the skirt will be perfect for the summer! I also tried on these shoes but I didn't want to commit to a shoe with a shape I was unsure about from a store that is too far away to make an easy return. I also found 2 pieces for my medical school wardrobe at Banana Republic- a grey dress and a black/white blouse (seen here).  Shopping at the outlets can be tricky because the prices are so good, but I always have to remind myself that whatever I purchase can't be returned (because the stores are so far away) so I have to really like them, and not just like them because they are inexpensive.
