The Annual Christmas Vortex

I love Christmas.  In fact, I love it so much that it makes me love the entire month of December and all the insanity that goes in to it.  I love Christmas lights and decorations, candles, our tree, shopping for presents, baking special cookies, and now the excitement that goes with Harry’s appreciation of the […]

Happy 4th my Friends!

Dear friends (and family), I hope you had a great 4th of July!  I wrote this blog in my head on my 5 mile race this morning with some great friends.  I really have some amazing friends that allow my life to continue happily and I don’t thank them enough.  I have friends who come […]

Pride

This weekend, Harry and I were able to shuffle up to PA to attend The Devon Horse Show and cheer on Harry’s Uncle Rusty as he showed his horse.  This is a very prestigious show; Rusty and his amazing horse Azor were up against incredible competition – 36 other horses!  In a crowd that big, […]

A Little Celebration

Today I was afforded the chance to take a step back, something I haven’t been able to do in a very long time.  Yesterday was my nursing final, and I was really worried about it.  It was challenging and I didn’t do particularly great on it, but overall I will end up with a B. […]

Finally, a Good Snow Day!

Finally! We had a snow day today that I didn’t miss anything for!!  Every other snow day this semester has screwed me out of a lecture at school.  Today, we missed clinical, but that’s not too terrible as we had it last night.  I did, however, miss out on the gym, but I used my […]

Hope, Help, and Healing

Yesterday, Harry and I had our weekly visit with our amazing chiropractor, Dr. Tyler Richards.  We always have the nicest conversations, and I always feel physically and mentally better when I leave.  I would highly recommend him, especially for pediatric patients.  He’s got a great bedside manner.  We talked about a lot of things that […]

I conquered the dreadmill!

Well, I certainly didn’t conquer it, but I did successfully use it to work out.  I’ve run on treadmills before but at around 30 minutes or so I can’t go on, no matter how slow I’ve been going.  My friends who do 8, 10, or more miles on the treadmill make me want to bow […]

Snow Day

While I hate the winter, I love a good snow day.  I love having the family stuck inside together with nothing to go to.  Unfortunately, my husband doesn’t get the day off as he works from home, but it’s still nice!  We were supposed to get some insane amount of snow, something like 2 feet, […]

Family Fun in New Orleans

New Orleans is a city I love, and not just because my best friend (aka my sister) lives there.  I think you can go down there and visit at any age and have a really great time.  I have visited and raged on Bourbon Street until the sun rose, I brought an infant and did […]
