Well, hello there!
(Baby arugula, baby spinach, hummus, a little bowtie pasta salad, sweet potato, rotisserie chicken, steamed rainbow carrots and Goddess dressing)
As evidenced by this awesome salad photo, you can see that I am, in fact, still alive and kickin’. Which is shocking, considering that this was my first week of NURSING SCHOOL!
Wanna meet my new best friends?
My program is 15 months and extremely intense. The class ahead of ours started with 65 students, and they now have 42. The good news is, I’m absolutely loving it. I just no longer have a social life, that’s all.
Due to the overwhelming time commitment that my school work requires of me, I’m afraid the little blog is going to be rather neglected. I am going to try to post recipes as often as I can, but that may not be as often as I would like. I hope you will all stick around as readers until I can get through this program and reach a very big goal of mine!
So, what’s been going on over here?
For starters, my hubby is officially an MBA graduate!
So proud of him!
My sister, Lauren, came to live with us for the summer.
She’s been adopted into our little family up here. Here’s a picture from Mother’s Day of us on a picnic with my mother-in-law, Maureen:
Corey helped me build a lovely, Pinterest-inspired office:
I realize now that it looks much cuter in person .
Speaking of Pinterest- I can’t leave you guys without some sort of recipe.
A few weeks ago, I decided to try a week of Pinterest recipes. Here are my favorites!
What did we do before Pinterest?
Time for me to get crackin’ on some studying. I have quite a to-do list for the next few months…
Luckily, I have my faithful study buddy by my side.
