Lessons learned...

You are never too old to learn a lesson. I feel like I have been told this my entire life. It is so true. This year has already had its up and downs. Ups being all things related to wedding planning and spending time with Kyle, my family, and friends. The downs had a lot to do with stress, school, and sickness. Those 3 terrible S's have worn me down and at times taken over my life. I am not typically a debbie downer, but recently I just feel like I am drowning with only a small lifejacket and my head is barely above water. Anyways here are the lessons that I have learned....

1. No matter if you are terrified of needles or think you won't get sick.....Please...I beg of you to get a flu shot EVERY year.
-I made the terrible mistake of not getting a flu shot. I thought that since it wasn't "cold" outside anymore that the flu had magically gone away. WRONG. My symptoms hit me like a brick and I was down and in bed for days. I have never been more tired and sick feeling than what I felt with the flu. TERRIBLE. Today I got out of bed to go to class. Its the small victories...

2. Stress physically affects my body. That statement might not make a lot of sense to you....but it makes perfect sense to me. Stress attacks my body and give me wonderful presents like fever blisters. I honestly think I got the flu because of stress. My immune system is so low because of the stress.

3. Comps terrify me like no other thing has before. I am so afraid of not passing that it is making it hard for me to study. I have slight test anxiety on a regular basis, but preparing for this test has been insane. How am I supposed to review my last 10 classes that I have taken. Seems impossible. I will do the impossible and I will conquer these stupid comps. My future depends on it. Scary...huh?

Catching up.

Whew, so much has happened since I last blogged in November. I will do a quick catch up on what has been going on...


Kyle planned a perfect proposal. If you want to hear the whole story then I would happy to tell you! :) Wedding date: 11/17/12
Christmas was wonderful. I have the best family in the world and I can't wait to be joining Kyle's family this year.

New Years:

We spent New Years celebrating the wedding of our friends Eric and Ashley. We loved dressing up and spending some time with our sweet friends.

I have been doing a lot of crafting lately. This is my latest thing that I made from pinterest.

Recent picture:

This was taken before our friend's wedding this past weekend.

I have been keeping my sweet niece for the past week. Love my Dolce.

So I have decided that I needed to make goals for the end of the year. The holidays are full of family, fun, and food. I love sweets and recently I have been saying "yes" more and "no" less. With Thanksgiving and Christmas around the corner, I have to decided to say "no" more. I want to enjoy a few sweets, but not eat the whole batch of cookies or pie.

1. Say yes to just a few special sweets and cook healthy
2. continue exercising
3. study more
4. give more
5. soak in family time

I have a lot of fun things coming up and I can't wait to enjoy them to the fullest. :)

Happy Fall Yall!

Busy Busy Busy

I can't blame all my lack of blogging on the fact that my iphoto is all messed up. So I am going to try and post more.

Fall is one of my favorite times of the year. I have found a new love for pumpkins. Pumpkin spiced lattes and all the yummy smelling candles are my favorite. I love seeing all the leaves changing colors. The cooler weather sure helps too.

Looking forward to:

-This weekend Kyle and I are going to a Saints game. I surprised him with the game for an early Christmas present. He has always said that he wanted to go to a game so I decided this year would be the perfect time. We are staying the night with some dear friends. :)

-Thanksgiving preparations and having my sister and brother in law in town for a few days.

-Decorating for Christmas and spending time with my family.

-Excited for New Years that will be spent celebrating a college friends wedding in TN! :)

I can't believe there is only 8 weeks left in 2011.

Beach and what-not.

Tropical storm Lee did not stop us from going to the beach. We found other ways to have fun. Bethany and I enjoyed a relaxing Spa day while the boys watched football. Bethany and I layed out for a grand total of 45 minutes the whole time and we actually got burned. Lol. Here are some pics.

Sweet Bethany!

I bet you can't tell what football game was about to be on. ;) Eating at Cobalt. The boys FAVORITE restaurant.

Little kid smiles. Eating at Mikees. We look sunburned.

In other news:

This little man (Ryder) has my heart.

Ready or not.....I started boot camp this morning. I will be a new woman (hopefully) come December! :)
