Daisy Update (17) and Book Haul (1)

Hi guys!!

Yes, that is actually a picture of the delicious food I had last night :)

I'm starting to get more comfortable at work and everything just seems to cost a little less energy, so I thing I'm starting to get the hang of this whole doctor thing ;) I got my almost-finished schedule till December and let me tell you, with the on-call things and night shifts and all, it's pretty scary. But oh well, it's all part of the job and I knew this going in.

Yesterday I went shopping with friends I've known since high school and we're all really big fans of food. We have this thing where we always take pictures of the food we eat together before we start, the picture above shows the incredibly good Mexican food we had last night! :)
It was fun, we explored a city we hadn't been to before and got baby clothes as gifts for one of our other friends, we're going to visit her and her tiny baby this afternoon.
And of course we shopped for ourselves :) I got a pretty new dress, a shirt and a cute skirt. And no shoes this time, GO ME!!

A while ago, my Broke and Bookish buddy Kelly tweeted me this picture cause it reminded her of me:
And it is just plain awesome and so me, so it's a really big accomplishment for me to go shopping and not come home with new shoes. My boyfriend was very proud of me ;)

This week I'll probably feel a bit sorry for myself, as the boyfriend is gone for the week, doing volunteer work at a kid's week in the town his parents live and will be there till next Saturday. He's only been gone for a little over 2 hours and I already miss him...

Bookish news: Anyway, in bookish news, I managed to finish 2 books in the past week, which is a whole lot better than 1 in 11 days. I also broke my ban to celebrate getting paid for the first time being a doctor and it was EPIC! :)

My Book Haul of the past 2 weeks:

- Supernaturally by Kiersten White
- Swept Away By a Kiss by Katharine Ashe
- The Locket by Stacey Jay
- Amy and Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson
- A Walk in the Park by Jill Mansell
- Empress of Rome by Kate Quinn
- Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson
- The Thing About the Truth by Lauren Barnholdt
- Debutantes by Cora Harrison

For Review:
- When the Duke Found Love by Isabella Bradford
- Yesterday's Sun by Amanda Brooke
- Much Ado About Magic by Shanna Swendson

I keep staring at all the pretties and feeling all kinds of guilty for not just reading them the moment they get here...

I hope you all have a great and relaxing Sunday and a wonderful week!!


  1. Yay for you getting settled in as a doctor! And for shopping and eating yummy food. I had a turkey burger yesterday and it was AMAZING.

    That's a bummer about your honey going away for a week, but it sounds like it's for a good cause! I bought a lot of books this week too and I just want to start them ALL at the same time! Lol. Hope you have a wonderful week :-)

    1. A turkey burger sounds SO good! I'll have to try one someday :)
      Yeah, it's a good cause and I know a week isn't all that long, but the house feels empty when he's not here... But I'll survive a week, I've already made plans with friends and such for dinner :)

  2. Ha ha ... I always go shopping and come home with books!

    I loved Amy & Roger's Epic Detour!!! I hope you like it!! And Debutantes is such a pretty book!

    Enjoy all your reading, Daisy! :)

    1. There was so much love for Amy & Roger's Epic Detour going around I just had to buy it!! :)
      And lol! I also almost always come home with books when I go shopping :)

  3. That Mexican food looks pretty good actually :D I hope it was great.

    YAY for getting used to the whole doctor thing :) I'm sure you're very good at it and that you're getting into the groove of things.
