Getting back in the swing of it: Meal Prep Edition

So I’ve started back in getting into the habit of healthy eating and working out. I personally use the 21 Day Fix by Beachbody because of the simplicity of the nutrition plan and the workouts! Plus how many workout programs do you know of that allow for wine and chocolate??? Yeah I didn’t think so,…

So I did this thing called “Pinning”

So this past Saturday (May 14, 2016) I did a crazy thing. I was pinned as an LPN!!! After nine long months of long lectures, longer clinical days, and filling in probably ten thousand bubbles I finally finished my LPN. It was a a long journey and well I’m excited to announce that I will…

What Christmas Break???

For most college students Christmas/Winter Break is a time to relax, hang out with family and friends, catch up on sleep and of course NOT think about the next semester!

Scrambled Eggs and Redeeming Wife Status 

So a few nights ago (Wednesday to excat but who needs the excat date) I made one of our favorite easy go to dinners! Meatball Dump and Bake! Seriously so easy add frozen meatballs, rotini pasta, spaghetti sauce, and 3 cups of water to a baking pan cover with foil and bake at 425 until…

Slipper Socks and Hardwood Floors

 So many of you may or may not know me that well and that’s okay. Today I’m going to explain something about me and it starts with the importance of slipper socks! Yes slipper socks! Those lovely socks that have the stickies on the bottom that keep you from sliding and falling and breaking a…

Pantyhose and Pencil Skirts

So today was a “dress-up” day for school. We were attending a presentation at another school and were required to wear professional clothes!! I LOVE these days!! So for those of you who know me, also know of my love for sweat pants and cowboy boots (hey don’t judge me) for those of you who…

Sunday Night Shenanigans 

Well I know I posted once today already but that was just an intro and it doesn’t count! So here we are Sunday night. The night before everything goes back to normal with school for me and work for my husband. It started off as a normal calm, chill, evening until 9:30 rolled  around… That’s…
