The girls trying to see who’s tallest 😂
Loved this pic so much I had to give it a permanent spot on the feed. After work Nathan took the girls down to the playroom (hence the random socks) so I could study, and later I met them downstairs for dinner outside, followed by silliness 🤪
I want to hear your best caption/meme for this pic (and those faces 🤣). Best one will get sent a Starbucks gift card from me just for fun (and because I appreciate you guys so much)!! Your words and cheers of support have meant a ton during this boards studying!
You guys know I love sharing product recs with you - this Remedy Dermatology Series lotion comes straight from the hospital (previously only available there)! Doctors, hospital staff and patients have been using it since 2004 - and now it’s finally available at CVS. #ad@remedydermatologyseries body lotion is a great option for those with dry, cracking skin (and older skin that easily breaks). And it’s a top choice for summer since it’s lightweight, fragrance-free, paraben-free and absorbs quickly (but thanks to oleosome technology, delivers moisture all day). It also received the NEA Seal of Acceptance from the National Eczema Association. From 7/14 to 7/20 spend $10 at CVS and get $3 CVS ExtraBucks.#remedyderm#cvs#dermatology#lotion
Monday mood! Feeling all cute and sh**.
ONE WEEK until my boards exam and I’m ready to feel like Liv - smiling, carefree, pizza in palm, curls flowing. Let’s do this!!! What’s one thing you’re going to kill this week? (Kill it is a good thing, like you’re going to knock it out of the park). Tag someone who might need a little nudge to go get it this week!
Poolside vibes 😎 What’s not captured in this photo is Ro’s poop explosion I just cleaned and the inside of my bag packed with my laptop, iPad, and book to do more studying. So close to test day! #mamasinmedicine (love that this hashtag I created has so many incredible posts)!!!
Updating my clinic wardrobe with a few functional investment pieces for ATTENDING life! I can’t believe I’m an attending now (can’t wait to share where I’m working later this week)! These @mmlafleur pieces certainly help me feel the part; the pants fit like a glove but feel like supportive yoga pants (and key for petite girls like me, have an adjustable hem so they can work with flats and heels)! And flowy patterned tops like these are always my favorite under a white coat - it can be dressed up with a skirt or dressed down with distressed skinny jeans! What are your favorite professional looks? #ad#inmymm
“They can’t be us if they can’t see us.” Something I remind myself everyday, especially on the days I get a little fed up with social media. To all the women (and men) who gain inspiration or hope by following along, thank you so SO much. You can do it, whatever it may be for you. I’d love to hear from you and why you follow (will provide a great study break and help push me through these last few days studying for my board examination)!
Sometimes you hold them and think “I can’t believe I birthed these wonderful beings.” ✨ Even Elli and her RBF (especially Elli and her RBF haha). Dancing in the pool is Ro’s favorite thing to do 😌 // 📸 and assistance in human creation by @nathanmdmpp
My start of July reminder ✨ For those outside of the medical world, July 1st is the start of a new year for all medical trainees. And I know at least for me it was always full of self-doubt and wondering if I was good enough for the next step - the next year of medical school, intern year, the next residency year, and every new responsibility and task that came with each promotion. But I learned to harness that self-doubt into motivation - to let that fear fuel my drive to learn more and prove to myself that I *could* do it. And most importantly try and do as much as possible. Trainees, remember, you wouldn’t have to go through training if you already knew how to do everything! Now is the time to learn and become your best (and continue perfecting that even as an attending, the learning *never* ends)! YOU ARE COMPLETELY CAPABLE OF ALL THE TASKS SET BEFORE YOU. Some pieces of advice? Get good at keeping a to-do list (for me it was a vertically folded piece of paper with check boxes of every possible thing that needed doing), things will come at you in all directions, keep them handy there. It’s also a great place to add a line about something you want to read about later (put a star in place of a checkbox for the things you want to look up later). And be a team player, always. Always. Spend the time to listen to your patients (you don’t have much of it, but little things like sitting down to listen to them and actually letting them speak before interrupting them make a huge difference). A caring doctor always wins, don’t let training beat that out of you. You got this. 👉🏽Would love to hear what stage of training you’re in for those who started yesterday! It’s always so fun to hear what amazing things your guys are up to!
Monday let’s DO THIS! Feeling like a queen after sleeping on a king! Yes we finally got a king-size bed!! 🙌🏽 💃🏽 Last night was our first sleep in our bedroom (we were sleeping in the guest bed) and I feel amazing after actually getting 8 hours of sleep on this @casper mattress! It helped that the kids all passed out early yesterday after lots of swimming! You know I got the hook up for you guys in case anyone is searching for a new mattress - use code lauralacquer100 for $100 off any Casper mattress!
