so busy.

The last semester of nursing school is really hard. I am only two weeks into it and I am already so overwhelmed by all the work. Yesterday I had a twelve hour clinical in the ER. When I got to the hospital it was absolutely pouring down rain. I had to practically swim across the parking lot. So when I got inside I was soaked. My shoes (and socks) stayed at a nice squishy consistency for the full twelve hours that I was there. Sweet. And I missed lunch. The cafeteria closes at one and nobody told me. I have clinicals at a new hospital that I have never had clinicals at before, so there was no way of me knowing that lunch was no longer available after one o’clock. I got mad at my nurse preceptor (probably not the best idea) for not telling me. So I grabbed my snack of a granola bar and an orange and I got to the lobby to sit down and eat before I burst into tears. Food is important to me people. Especially when I have squishy shoes and am working a twelve hour shift in an ER where I feel like I’m just in everybody’s way. I talked myself down from my near emotional breakdown by saying things in my mind like “this is so not a big deal” and “he didn’t notice that you were about to cry, he was too busy flirting with that cute PA”. I didn’t cry. Wow was I proud of myself.

So today I took the day off from all things school. I feel refreshed and am ready to start again with the madness on Monday.

i’ve decided

I can officially classify myself as “old”.

When did I decide this?

Today at the gym when I complained to my buddy that the music was way too loud.

Atleast I still look like a teenager.IMG_2000

thanks Lydia

IMG_0606 I wake up during the night a lot. Now, thanks to you and Jocelyn, every time I wake up I have Lady Gaga lyrics stuck in my head. Who can go back to sleep when they are thinking of such profound words as “I’m your biggest fan, I’ll follow you until you love me, papa-paparazzi…” And yet I can’t bring myself to take her off repeat on my iPod. Love you Lydee!

getting back into the swing of things

I got back from Utah on Saturday. It was definitely hard leaving my family and especially those babies. My flight had a layover in Houston so I was able to fly with Carli and her kiddos to help her and then go on to Midland. I literally sobbed uncontrollably in the airport. I love our life here in Texas but I absolutely hate living away from my family. We will move back someday. Anyway, I have lots of pictures.

Me and Frizzle hung out a lotbeautiful Come to think of it, everyone hung out with her a lot. 


We went to this super cute restaurant in downtown SLC called Em’s. Great food, even better company.




I got to hang out with the coolest siblings ever.



I got spoiled by Mom and Dad



We went out to eat… a lot.



Gabey made funny faces to entertain us.



We had many a dance party. (video to come)


















We hung out with Jamesey’s buddies from highschool

Good Morning!

Sarah (and my mommy) in the morn:

I would fear for my life if I put only the previous picture of Lolly on here. She would surely murder me. So here is a good one too:
(Love you Sarah!, you are my favorite little sissy!)
