Every time Kevin and I walk through Bed Bath and Beyond or Target, we (semi) jokingly say, “Hey, let’s get married again!”
I would have no problem at all filling up more registries, and even less trouble using those pretty gift cards that people give you at bridal showers. A wedding gift card was exactly how we ended up with a bamboo steamer, after all.

Autumn Apple Fritter Bread
During our brief stay in Southern California, Kevin and I adopted a favorite little doughnut shop not far from our apartment. It seemed just a little bit wrong for a student of nutrition and dietetics to be frequenting a place of fried pastries, but we only indulged three or four times during our entire 1 1/2 year stay.

Today’s Dietitian – One of my favorite Resources for RDNs
If there is one resource I wish I had during college, it is this magazine: Today’s Dietitian.
