Mother's Day Health Myths Debunked + Fox and Friends

Happy Mother's Day! If you're a mom, take advantage of the morning. Send your husband on the weekly grocery store run (kids in tow), relax with a good book and make sure someone cooks you brunch (cleanup included). We all love our moms but when it comes to health advice they don't always know best. Yesterday morning on Fox and Friends I debunked some health myths our mom's often told us as kids.

Thursday Giveaway! Lab Coat Upgrade

It's that time of year again. No, I'm not talking finals or graduation, or even pool season. It's time for the spring closet swap. You know, that time of year when you stash your bulky winter coats and mud-caked snow boots in the attic replacing them with pastel maxi dresses and flirty wedges.

Win New Spring Bling with a Dansko Giveaway

They tell me spring is here, but you wouldn't know it by looking out my office window.  My view today is of wind whipping through the alley and snowflakes falling on my neighbor's rooftop.  Always an overachiever, I have already planted a few flowers in my yard and I'm hoping the new additions to my garden will survive this cold snap.  Despite the chilly weather, it's not to early to start scoping out spring fashions.

Happy New Year! 10 Most Popular Posts of 2013

My favorite thing about New Year's is countdown lists.  Forget the parties and resolution making, I love looking back at the "Top 20 Songs", "5 Best Fashion Trends", "10 Most Embarrassing Celeb Moments" and "Biggest News Stories" of the year.  It's like media on steroids- all the best music, movies, news and more in one place.  Countdown lists anre my chance to watch all those hilarious You Tube videos I missed and songs I didn't hear enough of because my car stereo is broken.

Have you caught on to the "Keep Calm" craze?  Last night working in the ER I had a few "Keep Calm" moments myself.  It seems like patients often come in with what they think is the absolute worst injury ever known to humankind.  Then, I peel back their makeshift bandage to reveal a paper cut.

12 Days of Holiday Giveaways! Day 8: Becoming a Nurse Practitioner eCourse

Have you ever had a conversation over test message that really should have taken place in person?  These conversations never go well.  In text, sarcasm may be taken for sincerity leading to some awkward circumstances.  I never know how to take the word "right" over text, for example.  Do you mean "right" as in "You're correct" or "right" as in "Yeah, right".  The future of our relationship may depend on this distinction.
