Short and Sassy.

I did it! It is a done deal!!  I am now minus 10.5 inches of hair! I am so excited that I finally accomplished one of my lifetime goals!  I love my new hair style and so does my husband. (Thank goodness)  Thank you to everyone that came and supported Melanie and Locks of Love.  What a great organization!  I know they will do great things with our combination of over 45 inches of hair!  Thank you ladies!

Locks. Of. Love

As many of you may know by now, and for those of you who do not, one of my best friends has recently been diagnosed with stage 3 breast Cancer.  This came as a shock to everyone that someone so young could be diagnosed with something like this.  Melanie has a ton of support from her husband, family, and friends.  She recently started chemo and as most of you know with that comes losing your hair.  This Friday January 28th Melanie along with myself and two other friends will be shedding our locks for love! Melanie wanted to donate her hair before she loses it all in the next few weeks.  I have always wanted to donate my hair and now seemed like a perfect time as any.  I am very excited to do this and happy to show my support to my dear friend Mel!  I know that everyone does not have an extra 10 inches of hair to donate so to show your support to breast Cancer patients and survivors all around the world I think it would be awesome for all the ladies and any brave men to wear pink this Friday January 28th!!! Who is with me???

Birthday Weekend.

What a great birthday weekend!  Thank you to all family and friends for the cards and gifts!  I love them all!  Who doesn't love a 3 day weekend of birthday celebrating?  Friday I had an amazing time with my husband and a delicious meal at Flame downtown.  Thank you to Kari for letting me borrow her fun black dress for the occasion!  Saturday was a day full of shopping with Katrina and Kari for a care package for my friend Melanie.  We had a good time gathering all kinds of things that will come in handy for her in the next couple of months.  Saturday night I had a great time with friends at Maria's downtown for some more birthday fun!  We took up two big tables with about 20 people!  Who knew I had 20 friends!  :-)  Sunday was a day of shopping and another birthday dinner!  Goodness!  I had many good meals this weekend!  Time to hit the gym tomorrow! :-)

Birthday week.

Ah, its that wonderful time of the year!  The time of my birth! :-) haha  I have always loved my birthday!  This year is my 27th birthday.  While I am sad to see last year go, I am also lookingforward to what this year has in store for me.  This will be my first birthday as a married woman!  My husband is taking me to Flame on Friday night and to a movie.  Flame is our favorite restaurant and since we didn't go there on New Years Eve like we normally do we decided to save it for my birthday.  Saturday we will celebrate with Friends at Maria's, another one of my favorite places!  The theme of this weekend seems to be yummy food!  I am for sure looking forward to it!  3 nights of work then time for birthday fun!  Bring on the food and the presents! :-)

A new year, a new blog.

So its 2011 already and I have now been married for 4 months as of today.  Last year flew by when we started off 2010 with an engagement.  The next 9 months were a blur including wedding showers for myself and close friends that were also getting married.  Our wedding day was everything I had dreamed and went by so fast.  We had a fantastic honeymoon in Jamaica, and then we arrived back to reality.  I began my career as an RN and began my career as a wife.  So far, both are going great! :-)  Marriage is everything I had hoped it would be, and more.  I am not just saying that either!  Becoming an RN was scary at first, but I take it one day at a time and as the months have gone by I feel more and more confident in myself. I learn something new everyday, and that is why I love nursing!   I work the 7pm to 7am night shift and only 3 days a week.  That was an adjustment at first, but overall I love the people I work with, and it is nice to not have to deal with as many doctors. :-)  My husband and I are slowly making his bachelor pad a home!  I took over one room at a time. (hahaha)  Our current project is finishing a full unfinished basement to make it a "mancave" for my husband, and of course a workout room for me!  I am new to blogging but I feel that it is a great way to keep family and friends updated on what we are up to in 2011.
