Sweet and salty

After four 12 hour shifts, and not sleeping because of the break in, I was SOOOOO excited to sleep in till 9am. Can you imagine when I used to sleep in till noon. Those days seem so long ago…..

Then it was time for breakfast and a long bike ride!

First, I had to take my guard dog home


It felt great to get outside, and even though my legs were super tired, I was so happy to have a day off

The rest of the day was all about relaxing, and then Andrew was home!

He has been gone for the past few days with his dad, and I have greatly missed him.

Now its time for some popcorn, wine, and Harry Potter 🙂


Question for you:

What is one thing you do to relax?

Jam Packed Sunday

Another on the go Sunday, with only a few quiet moments in between. My calendar is jam packed! (just like mardi gras weekend)


First, I started out with a ten minute workout. I have been doing HORRIBLE in the food department (since the flu of ’13) and workouts have been none (since the repeat flu of ’13)


Today was going to start off different, and I had ten minutes to spare

Then it was breakfast time!


Eggs, pancakes, and sausage (but I didn’t eat the sausage) I think I need more color in my breakfast……

Andrew and I then headed off to church and I meet some of the members! More on this later…

THEN I GOT THE MOST AMAZING!!!!! NEWS! My friend Chrissy is getting married!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She called to let us know that Derek proposed last night! I cried, laughed, and smiled the whole way home. Just thinking about it makes me grin 🙂

Next. Lunch because Andrew and I don’t skip a meal haha.


The rest of the day does not include many pictures. Andrew had a basketball game, and then Andrew and I drove over to babysit four  kiddos along with my friend Shannon (and by Andrew babysitting, I mean he helped throw toys, and eat three bags of popcorn. hahaha)


Leaving the house at 8:30, and not getting home to 8pm was a bit of a day. But all of it was amazing, and it went by so fast! (I just wish I could stay in my pjs through it all haha)

Question for you:

What did you do this weekend?

work and work

My day started off by working 7-1130 in the NICU. I picked up four hours from another nurse (who was out the night before). It was actually a really great and fast day. I could get use to four hr days haha

I had colby cheese and a hard boiled egg when I got there. And then at 1030 oatmeal

When I got home. I ate a ton. mostly handfuls of popcorn. How did that stuff get into my parents house!

Then my son, brother, his girlfriend, and my dad headed to my house to work on the walls!

since it was one already, and my “workers” (dad and brother) werent there yet. We had lunch!

chicken sandwich

THen someone stole my camera!

"surprise" face haha
Angryyyyy face haha

Then the workers arrived and I had to get to work


Im pretty sure there is a lego head in there

Mini house tour

After working on the kitchen. Cutting the grass (yup I did it!) and a few other odds and ends. It was time for a SHOWER!!!! and dinner!


I had the fugi apple salad and black bean soup. I also tried my dads salad, but Ill stick with fugi.

I also had 2 dove chocolates, a chocolate pudding + fiber one cereal. And of course sprinkles!

I didnt get a workout in today. I was going to go to the gym after working this morning, but my left knee and ankle are hurting. Im not sure why. Is it the extra weight I am carrying? I need new shoes? The extra treadmill workouts? Bad running style?

Question for you:

What do you think is work? (either a job or at home?)

Any help on the knee/ankle problem?
