Already Failing

Surprise, surprise I didn’t post on Friday. I don’t even really have a reason besides this weekend was crazy!

I started school this past week. We had a Hurst review for nclex which was intense. We were there from 8-430 for 3 days going over all the important stuff we’ve learned over the past 4 years. My head was hurting. I have a lot of studying to do before sitting for boards.

Along with school comes a difficult work schedule. We have to get in at least 8 hours every week Monday through Friday. Now you’re probably thinking this is super easy. Wrong! The two days I worked I left for school at 7am to get there by 8am and then I didn’t get home until around midnight. Trying to fit work into my school schedule is insanely difficult. I have one day off from school a week and I really want to leave it off from work too so that I can study, relax, or do wedding stuff. Not trying to make excuses, just explaining.

Speaking of wedding we have save the dates! They’re here and almost all of them are addressed and sealed. Maybe I’ll post a picture in my next post since we have extras. I just need to cover up the city and state of our venue…don’t want any party crashers :). We pixked out which invite we liked and as soon as we have our tasting in March and set our menu we’ll order those. We bought a Groupon for personalized m&m’s and we priced out the cost of mason jars that we want to put them in (I’m trying to be the voice of reason with that but Tyler is set on them). Other than that we didn’t do much other wedding related things this past weekend. We’re in the slow part of planning since we have all of our big vendors booked so now we have to wait to meet with the florist and baker for the cake. Around March things will start to pick up.

Alright that’s it for now. I promise to try and post again on Friday but don’t kill me if I dont. I know I made it a resolution to do this every week but with school it’s tough.

Making Progress — January 8, 2016

Making Progress

I remembered to make a post on friday!! So proud of myself lol.

Anyways, it’s been a fun week. My interviews went well which I’m super excited about. I’m hoping I hear back soon but I’m also okay with waiting. I was so nervous but I think I made a good impression which is what everyone hopes for.

On the wedding front we got the samples of the different invitations we’re choosing between in the mail yesterday. We’re pLanning on using for both our save the dates and invites. They have such great products and so many options to fit everyone’s style and budget. They also have amazing sales constantly going on all the time! Once Tyler sees the invites and we make a final decision I’ll post pictures of the final decision. If anything it’ll be fun for me to look back on in years to come? Sure, lets go with that.

I don’t have that much else to update on. So until next time…


Hello 2016! — January 4, 2016

Hello 2016!

Happy new year everyone! I hope you had a great holiday and new year! This year is shaping out to be great so far and we’re only 4 days in. Let me explain more in depth…

First, I’m starting my last semester of nursing school next week!!!! Words can not express how excited and scared and anxious I am about this. I’ve worked so hard for this and I’ve struggled with it but I can say I made it. I have an amazing capstone opportunity in the OR AND PACU and I couldn’t be more excited. And adding to nursing…I HAVE MY FIRST INTERVIEW! I haven’t told anyone except Tyler and my best friend Megan. I’m so nervous but extremely excited so wish me luck!

Moving right ¬†along…as you know Tyler and I moved in with his parents last month. We struggled with it at first but it is getting better. And it was the right decision to make. We’re finally starting to rebuild our savings and we’re slowly getting back on our feet. I’m so thankful for them letting us come into their home and start over.

Finally, and most importantly, I’M GETTING MARRIED!!! This is the year it’s happening and I couldn’t be happier. It feels reachable and in sight and I’m so excited to finally be married to the love of my life and my best friend. I could write a whole post on him and how he has changed my life for the ¬†better. September 17th can’t get here soon enough.

So 2016 is going to be huge and I’m ready to take it on. I’ll keep you updated on everything leading up to graduation and the wedding. I’m making it a resolution to post more on here. No more excuses. I promise to post every Friday. They may not always be the longest posts but there will be a post on Friday every week. With that being said I’ll see you on friday!
