Weekend Update 1/12/14

Sorry this is so belated…. Better late then never 🙂

My weekend was very relaxing and fun! 

Friday started out with an 8 hour shift at work. Friday evening I relaxed on the couch, should have been studying but I didn’t. Honestly I did try to study but the website that I use was down for the weekend. What a bummer 🙂

Saturday I woke up and cleaned for a couple hours until my cousin arrived.


Saturday morning I let Maisy try my EnergyBits! She loved them!!!

We hung out at my apartment for a while. She asked me to be a bridesmaid in her wedding that will be in December 2014! I’m so excited!!! 

Once Scott woke up we headed out to lunch at Acapulco’s. I always forget how good their food is. Love the free chips and salsa. 

After lunch we headed to do some shopping. Scott is always an interesting one to go shopping with 🙂 We dragged him into Charming Charlies!



He had fun putting random things on Melinda!


Gotta stay warm!

And Victoria Secret was right there so we had to go in there to!


Yay for the semi annual sale!!! I got sports bras for 75% off!!!

Saturday evening Scott and I had a date night at Sole Mio Ristorante. It is a newer Italian restaurant in Woodbury and it is amazing!!! I have Marsala Ravioli and it was so good! 

Sunday I woke up and did a little online shopping at Jamberry! Katie started selling Jamberry Nails and I am so excited to get my stuff. 

OM06-med SE03-med

I thought these two colors would be perfect for my cruise! By the way did I ever tell you guys…. Scott and I are going on a cruise the first week of February courtesy of my wonderful parents!!! I can’t wait to try out the nails for my trip. Katie talks about them lots of her blog and it sounds like they are very simple to apply and stay on for a long time! I will let you know how it goes!! Also be sure to check out her Jamberry page and order is you want!! They have such a great deal…. buy 3 get 1 free!

I also went grocery shopping sunday. I was planning on hosting a Scentsy party but my scents rep ended up getting sick so I changed my party to an online party! If anyone wants to order you can order through my party online. Your order will be shipped directly to you!!! Check out under the specials, they have tons of bundle deals. And scent packs you can bundle so when you buy 5 you get 1 free. I’m planning on closing my party Wed January 22 so place your order before then if you want!

Those are my warmers that I have and I LOVE them!!!!! I keep them on all the time and my place is always smelling amazing!! 

Since my party was cancelled Scott and I ended up heading to Mark and Sarahs!!! I brought my taco dip and sangria that I had made for my party! 


Yummy sangria!! It was STRONG but really good! 

We also ordered pizza! Have you ever had gyro pizza? OMG we had it at Mark and Sarahs and it was amazing!!!! Best pizza ever!!! I love gyros!


They put Tzatziki sauce on the side and it was so good! 


We also made Nutella turnovers that were so good!!! I added Reese’s in a couple of them! Nom Nom Nom!!!! Who doesn’t love chocolate and peanut butter!!

Monday was filled with lots of studying! I also went to BodyAttack and BodyPump monday evening! When I got home Maisy had so much energy I played tug of war with her FOREVER!!!!


Luckily I was also skyping with my AMAZING friend Cara so time went by fast!! 

Sorry in advance if I’m not posting very much the next couple of weeks! I’m currently studying for my NCLEX (Nursing Boards Exam) so that is taking all of my focus! I will try to drop in and say high at least a couple times!! You can always see what I’m up to on Instagram and Twitter

How was your weekend?

Do you have any fun plans for the rest of this week?


Things are getting better!!

So I am starting to feel much better since last week. Saturday night Scott and I went out for pizza for dinner and then we relaxed. If anyone lives near Woodbury Ronnally’s has amazing pizza!!

Sunday Scott went o his uncle’s farm to help out and I stayed home and canned spaghetti sauce. I can’t wait to make pasta and try out my canned sauce. It smelt so good all day while it was simmering. While it was simmering I watched Fast Five… I haven’t seen the sixth fast and furious movie yet but I cant wait for it to come out on dvd soon so I can buy it. I really love those movies…. may have to do with Paul Walker being in it 🙂

Monday I had my second blood test done to see what my INR is at. I was bummed to hear that it is only at 1.2 😦 I really want it to be between 2-3 so I can stop with the daily injections. It is getting harder and harder to stick myself. I really have a different view point on people who have to give themselves injections all the time. My doctor increased my Coumadin so we will see where my INR is at Wednesday morning. Send good vibes my way please!

Monday evening was the start of Clinicals. I am at Fairview Southdale Hospital and I really love it. I am on a cardiac unit which is very interesting. Monday was an orientation day for us.

This morning I woke up to a very cuddly puppy.

Once we were done snuggling it was breakfast time. I treated myself to a yummy pumpkin waffle with Nutella, Raspberries and sugar free syrup! So delicious.


Also… check out this super cute bracelet my mom got for me…


I haven’t wore it yet because of clinicals but I will definitely be wearing it soon.

After breakfast I headed over to Don’s house to pick some more tomatoes.


I have six tomato plants within this section of the garden.


Lots more tomato, pepper and herb plants!!!

More garden area…. the whole back half of his backyard is all garden. It really is nice. Maisy really loves running through everything. It is nice because Don’s yard is fenced so I can just let Maisy run free.

After picking tomatoes I headed home to prep for my first day of taking care of a patient at clinicals. This evening I took care of a really nice older man. Although taking care of adults isn’t my calling I really do still love being in a hospital.

Ever since I was in Junior High I have known that I want to be a neonatal nurse. Thanks to my mom, I really have a special love for babies. I understand them so well. At work a few of the nurses call me the baby whisperer. I always wanted to be a nurse because I really want to help people and make a difference in their lives. Eventually I will probably go on to be a Neonatal Nurse Practitioner.

One last thing and then it is bed time…..

I am SOOOOOO excited for tomorrow morning. I get the opportunity to take a spin class, meet Dara Torres, and try out and review some cool new headphones that Dara helped design. They are called Fitbuds made by Koss Corporation. Tomorrow is going to be so much fun and I cant wait to tell you all about it.

What did you do over the weekend?

When did you know what you wanted to be when you grew up?
