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!

Clover Wedding

Over the weekend, I was THRILLED to be apart of my best friends wedding.

My friend Jessica and I meet first in college for nursing school.

We have been best friends since 2005

When she asked me to be one of her bridesmaids, I was so excited!

So on Friday, my friend Carolyn, Sarah, and I headed for Springfield IL for the wedding of the year!!!

When we arrived, we got some snacks!

And the bride took several people out on the four wheeler. Dont worry, they wore hats to keep their hair all pretty 😉

THEN it was time for the wedding runthrough!And then the rehearsal dinner

It was GREAT being with the girls. I swear it doesnt matter how long we have been apart, we just pick up where we left off.
