We’re Moving!!

That’s right, folks! We are moving! After 7 months of house hunting, we are in the process of buying our very first house! I’ve been very eager to tell all of you for several weeks but I wanted to wait until after the inspection and make sure that all things were definitely a GO! And things are definitely a go! Our tiny apartment is filling with boxes and we move into our very first home in a little over 2 weeks. I can’t wait!!

We're Moving!!

I wanted to share a few phone pictures I snapped during the inspection {hence the ladders in the driveway} to give you a little sneak peek of all the DIY goodness to come. First up? The front of the house, of course! Our soon-to-be home is a beautiful 3-bed, 2-bath ranch with tons of potential {and an unfinished basement!}. As you can see in the above picture… our work is cut out for us in the yard! There is not a blade of grass anywhere in the yard. That will be remedied. Trees will be trimmed, bushes removed, and flowers planted. And the front yard looks good compared to the back yard! I’m just itching to get to work on it!

How I Spent My Winter Vacation…

How I Spent My Winter Vacation...

I’ve had a very eventful past week! I don’t often share all the ins-and-outs of my life but sometimes I just feel like I need to. After all, this blog is also my place to vent and share! So here we go! Some of you may remember on Friday when I said on Facebook that I was headed up to the mountains for the weekend. About an hour and a half after that post, this happened. Yes, that is a large charter bus flipped on its side.

Once Upon a Halloween…

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!

In celebration of All Hallow’s Eve, I decided to dig up some old photos of Halloweens gone by!

My brother, Jordan, as a tiger; my sister, Moriah, as a ballerina; me as a clown. Don’t be fooled, Moriah wasn’t trying to be sweet and hold my hand… she is trying to steal my candy!

A Nurse’s First Aid Kit

A Nurse's First Aid Kit

In my efforts to squeeze every last drop out of summer I’m prepping for a little roadtrip! And given my aforementioned affinity for injuring myself and my background as a Registered Nurse, I have always carried a first aid kit in my car. The problem is that most pre-made kits don’t have all the things I {as a nurse} like to have available when I fall flat on my face tripping over that invisible rock that just appeared.

Not to toot my own horn, I’m a rockstar at first aid. {Ok… my horn might toot a little} Maybe it was all that time I had working with trauma patients and patients who could win an Olympic metal in falling down.
