Weekend Wrap-Up

Today was my last day of my stretch off and I had quite a bit I wanted to get done.  I've been watching Pretty Little Liars on netflix and totally got caught up in watching it.  I finally got up and got ready and ran to town.  I needed groceries and some other things.  After I got home, I texted by BFF to see how her little boy was doing after getting his tonsils and adenoids removed the day before.  She said he was feeling pretty bad but didn't want me to bring him anything.  The only thing he told me he wanted that would make him feel better was money!!  That kid is a mess!!  I brought him a get well card with money in it and I got a huge smile for it!! 

I slept off and on all day so I would be nice and rested up to start my first night of 5 in a row.  I got up and got ready then headed in for a fun night of work!!

I did not sleep well today and I know I will pay for that tonight at work, maybe I can take a little nap before I need to get in the shower.  Hope you all had a great weekend!!

Sunday Social {Week 8}

Sunday Social

1.  What is your dream job??  I have my dream job!!  I'm a labor and delivery nurse and I love it!!  It's the job I've wanted all my life!!

2.  If you had just won the lottery and didn't need to work for money, what would you do with your time??  I would take a HUGE vacation and fly different people at different times out to be with me!!  I would buy houses and cars and set up college funds and retirement funds and so much more for people that are close to me!!  I've thought about this a time or 2 :) Maybe I should start buying a ticket!

3.  When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up??  A baby nurse!  When I was 5, my mom asked me and my little sister what we wanted to be when we grew up.  I answered with "a baby nurse" and my little sister answered with "a cow"!!  Our favorite aunt and uncle had a dairy farm and we're pretty sure this is where that came from!!  Love ya Linds!!

4.  What piece of career advice would you give to someone just starting out in your field??  Ask questions!!  Chart everything....if you don't chart it, you didn't do it!!

5.  Biggest pet peeves either in life, in blogging or at work:  People who lie, misspelled words, several fb status updates in a row about what you are doing, slow internet

6.  Biggest fears:  Not getting married and not getting to have babies, drowning

Weekend Wrap-Up

This week was so crazy busy for me!!  I left work late and then went to Hobby Lobby to get a few last minute things for the shower.  I got home so I could sleep for a few hours then got up and started do some finishing up of decorations and food.  The 3 of us that were hosting the shower met up at the place so we could go ahead and decorate.  That was so nice, it let us be a little less stressed about tomorrow.  We realized we needed some more table cloths and other random items.  After we took {3 hours} to decorate I went to see Niki at her mom's house.  She needed help on what to wear to the shower.  We hung out there for a little bit and then I went home.  I still had so much to do!!

I was up at 8 so I could finish up some food and then get ready to head down to the shower.  We used up the entire 2 hours before the shower that we were there!  It turned out so well!!!

My fruit tower I made 
Niki & I
Crissy & Niki 
Niki with her hostesses 
Niki with the big brothers and Grandma Joni
The Cake Lady did it again!!  Love those fondant babies!! 
Love this little boy!!
The shower was done and after all the cleanup we were all exhausted!!  I went back to Niki's house to help her unload and go through everything (I didn't get to actually see much of what she got since I was writing everything down).  We had so much fun going through it all!!  We left and went to her mom and dad's to hang out because the a/c at their house is broken. 

After coming home last night and cleaning some, I slept in pretty late!! I had quite a bit more cleaning to do today so I got to it.  One of my best friends, Lacy, texted me that afternoon.  On her way home from St. Louis with her family, they were making a pit stop in Marion.  I met them and got to hang out with them for about an hour.  It was such a nice surprise!!  After that, it was more cleaning then I watched the Bachelorette!!!  I <3 1F Jef!!!

Weekend Wrap-Up

I know I've been MIA for way too long!!  I even missed Sunday Social yesterday!!  Ok, anyway, back to my weekend wrap-up.  After working the first 4 days of the week then working at the restaurant on Thursday, I drove to my sisters that night.  We got to have a slumber party!  We got up on Friday morning and got ready to go to Holiday World. 

Holiday World was so much fun but we were completely exhausted and headed out around 5 or so.  Lindsay and I decided to run some errands after we got home that night.  We needed to get some things for the shower we were helping throw on Sunday.  We had sushi for dinner and did a little other shopping.  It was so much fun!!  We eventually got back to her house and crashed not to long after!!
Once again, Lindsay and I got up early to make it to our mani/pedi appointments at 9.  Then we had to find a red or purple plant/flower to bring to the shower next and that seemed to be a little harder than planned!! We found some and headed back home to our parents house.  We hung out there for a little bit then went to our dad's to visit with him for a while.  We came back and ended up falling asleep!!  We had a surprise birthday party to go to for a friend of ours that was turning 30.  We made it there and stayed for a couple of hours.  Sadly, I didn't take one picture.  Our friend Anne and her little boy were coming into town for the shower the next day so we left the party early to meet her.  We hung out with them for the night then all went to bed!
We got up and got things together for the shower and headed out there around 11am.  The shower started at 2 and we wanted plenty of time to set everything up. 


Danielle and 11 of her bridesmaids....we were missing 1

The shower was wonderful!!  We had such a good time being with all our friends and families.  I have know this girl for over half my life now and I'm so grateful to be her friend!!  The bachelorette weekend will be here before we know it at the end of summer and then it will be wedding time!!  So excited for Danielle and Jeremiah!!! 
After the shower was over and everything was cleaned up, we headed home.  I hung out with my nieces the rest of the night and watched Pretty Little Liars with them until I fell asleep!!
