After it has been forever since Ive wrote my own blog on here. I found time today to do so. Life is so busy and Im ready for it to settle down. Whenever that might be. So here is a list of things Ive done this week.

1. My husband and I went to church on Sunday and taught our Sunday school class to 3 year olds. It such a blessing to spread the word of God to little ones. You think they wont remember but they do. Its just so sweet when I ask them who Jesus is they all say God. Drew and I are so blessed to have an opportunity to do this every other week. We absolutly love it!!

2. We then went to our grown up Sunday School class. Slowly but surely we are learning everyones names. We love it though. We have some good friends that are in there with us.

3. I have allready worked two days this week and I have to work this whole weekend.:( Im not looking forward to it at all. I also feel bad for mising church. Too bad the hospital cant close for the day:),

4. My husband and I watched a movie the other night (Knocked Up). It was really funny and nice to just sit there and yes in our bed. It was so relazing.

5. Oh yeah I forgot to mention. Sunday night we had my family over and celebrated my parents 25th Wedding Anniversary. It was so great to see a marriage last this long allready.

Happy 25th Anniversary!!

6. Cleaned our house from head to toe. It really needed it.

7.Studied, Studied and did some more Studying. Not Fun!!

8.I ate probably a whole chocolate cake. Not kidding. After my parents left sunday night they said to leave it and well I took care of the rest.

9. I went to school tuesday night for some stupid computer class. I think I know how to use a computer!!!!!

10. On one of my days off I got to sleep in to like 10. It was so great. Usually when I work I have to get up around 5:30am because I have to be at work at 6:45am.

11. I have not cooked one thing this week:( Im not the greatest cook but I at least try. My husband loves cooking so when he can he likes to do it so I usually just let him.

12. We ate at Jasons deli this week. I love it there. I could eat there everyday.

13. Today I plan on cleaning again and doing laundry. Also I have to start writing my paper. Then off to work for three days in row.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Weather: Fall, I love it!

I absolutely LOVE this weather. I wish it was like this all year long. Even though I did not get out in the cool weather much it was still wonderful. Drew and I today went to lowes after church and bought some white mums and put in our two planters beside our door. They look so pretty.We tried to find white and orange petunias to plant along in our walkway but we found NO orange petunias :( Im ready for the leaves to start changing. I finally ordered me some long sleeve shirts from Victorias Secret. I cannot wait to get them in.

School has been crazy this week. So many papers and tests. Sometimes I wonder what was I thinking. However I do have good news. Word on the street at work is they will giving a 3 dollar raise to those who have there bachelors degree. Im way excited about that. In the past there has been no pay diff betwee nurses with there associate and bachelors. I knew there was a reason to go back to school. I dont know this for sure or when it will take effect but I repeat im EXCITED!

Drew and I pretty much ate out all weekend long. No wonder I cant loose weight! Well on thursday night we went and had dinner with my cousin, her husband, and their baby Brianna. Steph is like my sister and we have always been close. However I had not seen them since july4th. I was so excited to spend time with them and my little neice. yeah I call her this. I was a little sad because she has gotten so big. She is 8month now and I could just eat her up. She is such a gorgeous baby and happy one at that. It makes me more ready to have my own. Natalie not yet is what I have to keep telling myself. I stay stressed enought with school and work.

I hope everyone had a great week and weekend!

GOD is Great

You know I pray all the time and thank God for the health I have. I guess working in healthcare and especially with the type of patients I care for there I really see what goes wrong. I stay constantly worried about things. I worry if I call Drew and he doesn't answer right away. I think what it he has been in a accident. I know its crazy I can't keep worrying about these things. I am a true believer that things do happen for a reason. So why can't I stop my worrying? I worry about my parents health all the time. Making sure they are eating right. Im scared to death of something bad happening to them. I can take care of people all day long but when it comes to my loved ones its a different story. I thought of this today as I had a patient who was going to have to go to charleston for surgery on her anuerysm in her head. She told that God is Great and that she was going to be fine and she was going to come out of surgery feeling great. I had such admiration for this woman. Her realtionship with God let her feel at ease and she knew she would be ok.

I am so thankful for my heath and God is Great and has blessed me in more ways than I can explain. This woman today made me think that I do not need to be as worry-some as I am sometimes. My husband tells me this all the time. Its funny at dinner time when we pray Drew always pray's for me to be less stressed. So today I will use my faith in God, because why should I spend my life worrying on these things. Because all things happen through God for a reason.

My Weekend

I love the weekends. Especially when I don't have to work. I guess thats the down side to working in the hospital is that is can't close on the weekends. Oh how I wish it could though! I did have to work on friday and when I got off my husband picked up pizza from pizza inn and we stayed in and watched t.v together. I love just sitting around the house together. Saturday we both got up and went to the gym (something I need to do more often). Then I went with Lisa my bestest to look for a bridesmaid dress for us to wear in her wedding next may. We had a blast with it just being us girls. That doesn't happen often now days. Luckily I believe we have found the one she wants. We also had lunch at the mall. I took a nap when we got back and then got up to have my brother and his great girlfriend over. We grilled out and watched some fight show. Needless to say I found myself very tired and feel asleep through it. Nate and his girlfriend stayed the night with us. Today, Sunday I spent the morning time with my hubby. Yeah I felt bad because we didnt go to church :( Nate and his girlfried came over again and are going to stay the night with us. We are going to watch a movie! Yeah Im so excited its been so long since Ive watched a movie. Needless to say its been a great weekend hanging out with my hubby and brother and his girlfriend.

Sad note: We did not get to go to the clemson game :(

Hope everyone had a great weekend!!!!!

My first blog

This is my first blog ever. After being a frequent visitor to others sites I have decided to start my own. I talked with my friend Terri and both aggreed we need yet another online why of communicating (haha). Im excited about starting this and keeping up with old friends and hopefully to encourage more to join. If you dont know me Im a graduate of Byrnes High School and then went straight to Greenville Tech where I received my degree in nursing. I have worked at Spartanburg Regional in the Neuro-trama ICU for 4 years now. I absolutly love it. I love saving people's lives and giving chest compressions. I know it sounds crazy but I get such an adrenaline rush. Im a fast paced person so Im definitly in the right place. After getting married last december, I have decided to go back to school and get my bachelors from clemson. I must say my husband and I are so ready to have a baby but we know its just not the time. School is good birth control. I can't wait for the day to become parents but for now Im enjoying my time with my sweet husband. My husband is in real estate and also is a residential builder. He is building his first house in reidville and so if anyone needs a house please buy his. Have a great day all!
