A busy absence

Hello again everyone! I feel like I do really well with blogging then when I work several days in a row, I can’t blog about much. Well I COULD blog about how tired I am, but who wants to hear that!?!?! haha

Anyway, after the baby went home, I worked five 12 hour shifts in a row. I even worked out after two of them! I was proud of myself.

Finally I was off! The past two days have included my favorite class at the gym, a nap, and going to the Cardinals game with my friends Jessica and Sarah

I went to nursing school with them, and absolutely adore them! We can be away from eachother for weeks, and then get back together, it is no different than when we were in school. Love them!

Wednesday, was just a whole bunch of running around. I had to renew my license (my bday is next week!), take Andrew to vacation bible school, visit the baby, get Andrew to the library and get his hair cut.


Doesn’t he look so tough!?!?! haha. He wanted to be able to spike it 🙂

Afterwards, we stayed low at home. I ate my salad while watching So You Think You Can Dance.


So good. I wish I could dance 1/2 as well as they do

Then it was off to my brother’ and future sister in laws’ house to meet their new puppy Charlie

makes me want to get one…… haha

I brought my favorite black bean brownies (dont knock it, till you try it) They are delicious!

Question for you:

What food dish do you usually bring to get togethers?

-I always bring the veggie tray. my friends always plan make fun of me for it!

Would you rather sing or dance really well?

-Dance definitely!

mr flowers didn’t survive the winter

I guess its time….

I obviously can’t talk about everything that is going on in my life. A girl has to keep some secrets right?!?! 😉

So if we back up a bit… I haven’t seen Mr Flower’s since October (this  is the last time he was here) Even though there has been skype, it just wasn’t the same.

In December, I was suppose to head to Kansas to visit him and his twin girls. The night before, he canceled. There is a lot going on in his life, and I understood. Well it happened again just a week ago. After a lot of thought, prayers, and tears, I realized I wasn’t a priority in the relationship anymore. It has been going on for awhile.


I decided I deserved to be treated better.  It was extremely difficult, especially since I believed that he was “the one”


of course, family and friends have there for me.

My friend Shannon sent me this, just as a reminder that you shouldn’t wait around for the wrong one

Mandy, my sister in law, and I are going shopping this Sunday. A girl always needs to shop

 My dad has been helping me with my house. And my mom has been asking me constantly how I am doing

All my friends have been texting and calling to see how things are going. Amanda is trying to get me out there already haha


Even with all that help…..the songs, my house, food, you know everything, reminds me of Mr. Flowers. I know it will just take time, but it has been really hard. I also need to stay busy and one day I’ll be ready to get out there.

I have been going to yoga and working out. Its time to focus on me (and andrew) for a little bit 🙂

Question for you:
