Hooray for New Medical Scrubs!

Published 18 December 09 04:17 PM
And yay for grazing!

Someone just walked by my desk and declared "I'm not eating for a week." I'm pretty sure that sums up the sentiment here in the ADVANCE offices today. We feasted on pierogies, meatballs, lots and lots of cookies, hot cider, hoagie dip, egg casserole, Chick-Fil-A, more cookies and yes, even some vegetables. My own contribution, which didn't turn out nearly as bad as I thought it would, was orange crunch cake. While I like baking, I do get impatient and unhappy when recipes don't turn out the way I'd planned (this is often), so I was glad that the double-decker cake turned out fairly pretty and, according to my fellow employees, tasty.

Today was the annual (I'm thinking and hoping it's annual now, right?) Day of Grazing in our departments, and it was glorious, with Crock Pots a-simmer and chocolate and cheese galore. The Day of Grazing isn't the only great thing to come out of ADVANCE lately, though. We've added new medical scrubs to our wide selection! I chose two scrub tops that I like the best.

First up, I can't get enough of the way these new Koi scrub tops are cut. The fit is flattering for every figure, and the pattern's cute, even though I'm not a huge purple person. It's stylish enough to be worn outside of the hospital - after thorough cleaning if you wore it to work first, of course! The sleeves are just the right length for people who are usually cold, like me, hitting right below the elbow. The neckline veers from the average scrub tops, and I like the longer length that these new Koi scrub tops have.

Next, I liked these new White Cross scrub tops, too, featured here in pink. These come in five colors total, including a bright green and aqua blue. Like with the Koi scrub tops above, the cut is flattering and, while these scrub tops by White Cross have a more traditional scrub feel, they're stylish and feature the figure-friendly empire waist.

Has your facility done anything similar to our Day of Grazing? Do you have any tips on avoiding overindulgence (tips I could've used today)?
