top three [11.2.14]

one || two || three

 double pearl earrings are everywhere - mine are from eBay but BaubleBar has it in various colors (grey please!)

I always love reading people's weekend update/reading/links posts (some of my favorites include Jess's, Grace's, and Hallie's), and I always find/read/eat/see things I wish I had a space to share with you, so I'm hoping a weekend update post gives me a place for that. Let me know what you think, or if there is something you'd rather see!

  • Our first respiratory exam is tomorrow, so it has been all about the lungs for weeks now. I think of the coolest parts of anatomy last year was getting to hold a lung because they really feel like squishy nerf balls. In random (and sad) facts, at autopsy, a normal lung will float in water, but a stillborn's lung sinks since it never took a breath to expand the lungs. 
  • More Americans have been married to Kim Kardashian than have contracted ebola in the US. Are we playing into the fear? Learn the real symptoms and how one actually contracts ebola here (so unless you are in direct contact with someone who has probably won't get it).
  • Grey's Anatomy versus Real Life
  • Bonus: 1 in 900 people are born with an extra kidney!

  • CR and I have been doing the 4 Hour Diet for three months now, and I really enjoy it. It's not hard to stick to once you get into it, I've lost around 10 pounds with minimal effort, and since we've relaxed just a little bit on the rules, I don't find myself having huge cravings for anything anymore. I've been looking for new recipes to use though since our chili/ chicken + plain veggie / salad routine could use something new, so I tried out Grace's Cauliflower Rice recipe and it's amazing - mine turned out more like couscous which is even better. I added yellow squash and cherry tomatoes for a bit of fall color.
  • Although we have an exam tomorrow, all of us went to a Halloween party on Friday night. We went as a group costume that no one would get unless you went to school with us, but needless to say, it was a huge hit and we all had so much fun. We were in bed by 11:30 though, so I think that means we're old now (or just responsible?).
  • Daylights Savings means an extra hour of studying. Yay? Yay!
