Hey y’all! Things have been crazy in my neck of the woods! I have been working tons and my sleep has been so off lately that I haven’t been able to write posts while I’m working my night shifts. I’m currently working on catching up on all my blogging and what not….. I have had a LOT of new things happening in my life this past month so I thought I would tell you all about everything in this Friday Favorites post!!
Thank you to the LOVELY Katie for hosting this amazing Link-up!
So where to start…… so many amazing things to tell you….. maybe I’ll start with….
As you all know I’m currently a home care nurse. But…. I am also still working at the pediatric hospital as a nursing assistant. I applied for the July new grad program at my hospital and I GOT A POSITION!!!! The new grad program is just a three week classroom style learning at the hospital and then I start orientation for my position. I am OFFICIALLY an RN at the pediatric hospital which is a dream come true! I will be staying on the float team, which means I will float between the two med surg floors. I’m so excited and happy to finally be a nurse in the hospital. I start this new position on July 22nd…. 4 days!!! So excited!!!
Now I have grown to really love working with my home care patient so I will stay casual with that company just so I can work with my patient a couple times a month. I would miss him and his family if I didn’t work there anymore and I think they would miss me too
next up for EXCITING news……
Scott and I have been in the process of looking for a house all summer. We have looked at quite a few places and never found one that we both loved. One of my close friends recently built a home and I told Scott about it and we decided to go check out the model…. well…. we both fell in LOVE and we are now building a house also! We will be living right down the street from my friend. I’m so excited to actually know one of our neighbors!
Since our house isn’t built yet I don’t have pictures of our place but I do have a photo of the amazing kitchen!!
This is the layout of what the kitchen will look like!!!
This is the colors that we picked out for the kitchen. Grey flooring, dark cabinets, the center island will be the light granite and the outer router space will be the black granite. By the way that was Scott’s idea to have two different counter colors…. he’s a creative one
I’m so excited to have our house all planned out! Now it just needs to be built. I’m hoping we can move in before Christmas!
I ran the color run with my mom this year!!!!! She stuck with me for the whole 3 miles and kept me running Running is so much easier with a buddy!
My aunt and cousins also ran! We had lots of fun taking photos at the end!!!!
A few of my friends also ran!!!!!!! It really is a fun run and I can’t wait to run it again next year!!!
Sunday was Scott’s birthday so we celebrated with friends out on the golf course!
Scott and I have really grown to love golfing and it is even more fun with the right people! We don’t play serious golf…. we like to goof around and laugh and have a blast! And it’s ALWAYS fun when Mike’s is involved!!! There is something refreshing about a Mike’s Hard Lemonade
Boys are so awkward in photos
After golfing we headed back to my parents and grilled! It was a low key but super fun birthday! I think Scott had a great time!
10 Day Cleanse Results
I just finished my third cleanse and once again I’m very happy with my results. This time around I decided to only do a 10 day cleanse instead of a full 24 day challenge.
My results: 3 lbs lost and 6 inches lost!!
My total since starting advocare: 23 lbs lost and 19 inches!!!!!
That is crazy to think about…. but people tell me all the time that I look good and that is great motivation to keep on going! I have a lot more to lose but I’m ok with losing it slowly because that is the way to keep it off!
1 YEAR BLOGIVERSARY
I can’t believe it has almost been a year!!!! July 30th marks 1 year of this blog and to celebrate I’m hosting a HUGE giveaway!!!! Stay tuned for more info on that in the next week or so!
