Scrubs & Beyond

Say medical scrubs and many women will think of George Clooney and his blue scrub and ER. Well I got news for you, medical scrubs are not only blue these days, nor are they white. They now come in beautiful patterns and colors.

Scrubs & Beyond specializes in scrubs, their cherokee medical scrubs comes in pink, blue and yellow. Besides from scrubs they have very comfortable looking tops and pants. Their nursing uniform selection also include dickies scrubs, these scrubs have a slightly different design to them and a more colorful approach with deep pink colors but I can definitely see how it would be comfortable working in them. The difference between them and the cherokee medical scrubs is the V-neck and the colors.

But the most beautiful of them all is the new Katherine Heigl scrubs! I mean look at that! I think these scrubs are beautiful and as far from boring blue scrubs you can get. If this is the new fashion in nursing hey then even I can have a re think about becoming a nurse. *lol*

This might not be the option for hospitals, yet, but for private nursing it is great- practical and beautiful!

Well I have to say I think this is absolutely beautiful and it is definitely about time that the nursing uniforms had some colors and patterns added to them. If I worked as a nurse I would probably run to my boss straightaway and show him these beautiful scrubs!!

((Perhaps I could buy one and use here at home, I mean I do take care of my family, isn't that almost the same thing??? ))

Huh? What did you say?

Choriço has always been a slow talker, I mean words are coming out of his mouth it's just that no one understands what he is saying . Those who do not belong to the family often have no idea what he is saying and ask me to interpret his conversations.

Well interpreting does only work when you know what the other person is saying, which is not always  the case here. There are times when I have no idea what he is saying. And boy does he get mad at me when I try to figure out what it is he is saying and I don't get it right. That is when I say: "Aha, I see, OK". And pretend I totally understand what he is saying and everything is fine. 

But lately he has started talking and saying things he has never said before, long sentences that just comes so naturally. Simple things that for us is not, like yesterday I asked him to remove his toys from the floor and he said; "well mom you go ahead and move them then". Me and DH looked at each other and said; where did that come from?

And it makes us feel so proud, our baby knows how to talk and he is so smart. *lol*

I really want to remember times like this. These are nice memories.

Do you have the look?

Do you have the look? What look? The look of the year that is!

The dream of becoming a supermodel is something that most girls have, most of us forget about it as we grow up but for some it continues to be a dream. If you are one of those now is your chance.

Busy bee

Oh dear, I am so busy these days, now especially with the Bloggy giveaway going on. But I am definitely not complaining, I like being busy and this is being busy in a good way so it's OK.

Choriço got a cold on Monday and had to be home for a fee days but is now OK. This boy is getting so big! Seriously can you ever get used to the fact that your child is growing up? I wonder how my mom feels about having a grown up daughter. Scary thought!

The winter has also come, it is now quite chilly every day and the other day it was almost snowing in some parts not to far from here. I say almost snowing because it was hailing and within 10 minutes the ground was covered in white. It was quite funny to see on TV I have to say :)

It is now 3pm and time for some afternoon coffee, I have replied to emails (and customized a lot of headers) all morning and a good part of the afternoon. So now I think I deserve some coffee :)

Blog contributors wanted

Do you love to blog about food?

Brazilian Food Love is looking for contributors!

I do not have the time needed to post regularly myself but this blog receives a steady flow of traffic everyday and it would be a shame to let it go to waste, therefor I am now looking for blog contributors and guest bloggers!

What I am looking for:

One or two experienced bloggers with a passion for food. Experience in writing recipes is a must as well as fluency in English. Ability to post at least 1-3 posts per week. You also need to be willing to spread the word about BFL- the more exposure for the blog the better for you as well. SEO experience is good but not necessary.

Brazilian writers will have preference but is absolutely no requirement.

What you get:

This is the sad part for some- no money but you do get exposure. Brazilian Food Love receives a steady flow of daily traffic and has a high rank in Google searches. You will be presented on the blog as a contributor in which you can link to your blog(s). A link to your blog and introduction post will be available in the sidebar.

At the moment this blog does not have any kinds of income, however, should it start to receive a steady flow of income I will discuss payment with you. As  freelance writer myself I do know how important it is to get the right exposure and to get paid for it.

You will also receive blogging guidance if needed.

Don't want to become a regular contributor but a Guest Blogger? That can also be arranged.

If interested please send an email to: brazilianfoodlove *@* with subject: Blog Contributor or Guest Blogger

Remove the *. Please include a link to your current blog(s) as well as tell me how often you would be able to post.

(I am planning a face lift for the blog- just not sure when)

Super Granny!

My son is so lucky I have to say! With my relatives being far away he has got the best ones here. They are always supportive and help us whenever needed.

The other day my MIL called and said she ahd bought a bicycle to Choriço and his cousin H. I was very surprised and at the same time ever so grateful. Me and DH have been talking about buying a bicycle and started looking but after seeing the horrendous prices we decided that he would have to wait a little longer.

Yesterday the bicycle arrived from the store and seeing the expression and happiness on Choriços face was the greatest pay I think. He was so happy and started riding it immediately. No problems what so ever with riding his new bike. At night he asked me to put it away in the back to "keep it safe".

I thanked my MIL but the small thanks I gave her will never show the great thankfulness I feel. I don't think she understands the value of her gift. I am probably more grateful for it than Choriço, in a way he will never understand.
