Since I started nursing school, I have had quite the busy life. I really need to keep this updated, but I don't have any time!!! I'm so sorry!!! But since I just noticed that Kim hasn't blogged in longer than I have, I don't feel quite so bad. :) (just kidding Kim) Since nursing school has started, I have also decided to work two part time jobs. I didn't think that was going to be so bad, until I started losing sleep! I am so tired a lot of the time and doing my homework takes up so much of my time that I don't even have time to keep my house picked up! Luckily, the washer machine and dryer work so I can at least have clean clothes even if they aren't folded and put away into the drawers where they belong. Someday I will be all caught up!

I'm so sorry blogger friends. I have been a real slacker this summer. I have been organizing my house, working two jobs, visiting with family, and just enjoying summer while it lasts before I go back to school next week! And then I start the crazy schedule for H-E- double hockey sticks. No joke. I have a test the first day of school, an 8 hour day the 1st 3 weeks of school, and clinicals starting the second week of school. Talk about super gross! I'm going to be super busy, but luckily I have been going to Zumba at the Zero Cardio Club in Safford all summer (which is my second and part time job) and I love it! I'm taking it this semester so that is going to be my huge stress relief. The only good thing about having a stinky, busy schedule at the beginning of the semester is I will be done with my clinicals before November and all of my concept maps will be turned in before finals and all I will have to focus on is my Teen Clinic time and Community Service hours. And getting good grades so I can go onto the next block of course! So everybody, if you don't hear from me for a while longer, I haven't fallen off the world, I have just become a professional student again and won't be back for at least until May. Maybe I will update though every now and then, like when my sister in law has her baby and I have to show the baby off :) and when I pass important tests and do awesome amazing things during school. Or if I do any food storage things also. Just be patient for a little while longer my friends!!

I heard this song on the radio this morning when I was traveling the two miles between jobs and it made me realize how lucky I am to be "somebody's Chealsea" Also, Reba McEntire's voice is just amazing in any song that she sings anyway. I hope you like this song as much as I do!

I have really been in the mood to do Christmas stuff because when school starts up again I won't have time to be crafty! I found these cute things online today and loved them! I love the spooky for halloween, my only problem is I have no place to put these if I make them! :( I guess I will have to wait for a while until I actually have a fun place to decorate.

When school got out this semester, I told Chris that the only thing I wanted to do was to paint our bedroom. So the week after school got out, I used our 50 dollar gift card from Home Depot to buy some beautiful paint and got to work. I don't have any before pictures, all I have is after, but I love our room now! It is just one more step to making our home more ours!!! Next we get to redo the bathroom and I'm going to try to talk Chris into letting me paint the kitchen red. I will have to elt you know how that one turns out!
I love our bedspread! That's all.
This cute craft I created with help from my friend Kim Pease. If you want to know how, let me know and I can try to find the link for the tutorial. It was super easy and turned out so cute, but I modified it to what I wanted it to be. And I love how it stands out on my wall with our wedding photos next to it.
(The brown door with the mirror on it is eventually going to be white) The board hanging on the wall is the 13th article of faith. We made them one night at a Relief Society Meeting. Also, don't look too closely at the mess on my dresser. It isn't there anymore I just wanted to take my picture then!
Here is a picture of my window. I love the curtain sham that came with our bedspread. I had to repaint the windowsill because it was so gross! And now it looks AMAZING!
This is our bedroom makeover. It looked exactly the same before, only it had boring white walls and these nasty brown colored doors, which I didn't get a picture of but I should!! Now it is awesome and I love it so much!

Chris' birthday was yesterday and I wanted to make it a special day for him. So I woke up and I made him his favorite breakfast. Breakfast burritos.
I gave him a hand blender (AKA bean masher) because his real present hasn't come in yet!! This was just one to tide him over. I also got him a head massager which is awesome! And some fancy argyle socks (which he loves to wear to church with his suit.)
My mom got him so nice new shirts for work.
And our friend Adrian gave him an apply cider Martinelli, magnets, handcuffs, and a card came called Fact or Crap.
From his parents he got some golf balls, a new golfing hat, and a towel to use to wipe his clubs off when he is golfing. All in all, I think he had a pretty great day!!! That night he went and hung out with his brother Jacob while I went to sleep haha! Happy 23rd birthday Chris! I hope it was a good day for you!!

This last semester, Chris decided he wanted to pursue his hobby of golfing, so him and his dad decided they were going to go once a week and play a round of golf. Chris bought me a set of golf clubs, which I wasn't thrilled at all about when he first bought them but now that I have actually used them, I'm more okay with it. Chris bugged me and bugged me and bugged me until I could go. I told him I couldn't go during the semester because of school so we waited until after school got out and I went with them. I was terrible at first, but once I got into the hang of it, I actually had a lot of fun, and I score lower than Chris did his first time golfing which I'm pretty excited about.

One weekend, I was hanging out at my mom's house and my aunt called and asked me where my mom was and all I heard my mom say was, "I want a boy one." I asked her what was going on and she said that she was getting my brother a puppy. I was like, uh who are you and what have you done with my mom?!! So my aunt comes over with the CUTEST little puppy I have ever seen. He was so little he was smaller than my cat! We named his Oscar. He is a chocolate lab and when we got him he was exactly 6 weeks old. Now he is getting into everything and is getting bigger but the tricks we have taught him are to sit, give a handshake, and balance on his back two legs. He is actually great at all three tricks! Here are some pictures of the little fellow when we got him!
