20 hrs overtime

In the last four nights i have worked three overtime shifts. Call me crazy....which i am, but i guess if i can work OT why not do it. I guess i need it for my trip to hawaii at the end of february. My friends ramy, willesha, and i have squared away our plane/car/condo reservations. i can't we get to plan the fun part of the trip.

so in preparation for hawaii i have got back to the grind of working out. i kind of slacked through the holidays, so much that i gained some weight and some body fat back. i started working out with a new trainer, named leah, who has been kicking my butt to get me back down to what i was pre-holiday. i just had a weigh in today after two weeks and i dropped 1.7% body fat, which i was super stoked about.

that's all for now....

So i finally went to my first blazer game of the season, and for some reason they decided to lose. I went with my "little." we got free tickets, which is hard to pass up. It was fun hanging out, minus the fact that they lost. Of course, here are some pictures....go blazers

my little and i....i think she was snacking on something.....

if anyone is up for going to a game....let me know. they are fun....

bowling with my little....

So i'm part of the big brother, big sister program and i have a "little" who i hangout with about once a week or so. Her name is sequoia and she is real cute and fun to hangout with. we went bowling yesterday, her first time ever. i think i taught her well, or maybe it was the bumpers that are some pictures from our little outing.

i've taught her well....or its a good thing we had bumpers
sequoia 77, tiffany 99....not bad

i did much better this time around because i had bumpers.....sad, but true

Airplane pics....

I had a window seat on the plane ride from houston to seattle. it was an absolutely gorgeous day and i had some amazing views. especially of the rockies for a majority of the way...for those that like amazing sites, i included some pictures....

somewhere along the rockies them

downtown seattledowntown seattle and the cascades (i think?)


After working 6 days in a row, i flew to houston and hungout for three days with my best friend last weekend. It was fun, it was a quick weekend, but very fun. I needed it and it was great to see Megan. I got to meet her friends from work, friends in town, and even future husband (maybe?). Also, i got to see her cute townhome now that she is a homeowner. I made sure to have a texan burger, as well as tex-mex. By the time i returned i was pretty tired caught up on some sleep, and then started work again for another three days. Talk about a crazy two weeks, but it was worth it. Here are some pics....

I went to my first hockey game ever, the Houston Aeros (a minor league team)...I have found one of my new favorite sports to watch. This is a picture of a fight breaking out.

And another fight....loved it.
This is one of megan's nieces, Kaitlynn, so cute. Megan and I on the last night i was in town....i was shown some southern hospitality.
crazy megan...
everyone meet Jeremy or Germ-y as i like to call him....all i have to say is i have a great wedding toast prepared....

I'm Sorry....

I apologize to my my blog readers for not holding up my end of the bargain on this internet updating. It has been far too long. Many times i will sit down at my computer with the intention of blogging and for some reason i just can't do it. i don't know what's wrong with me. it is like working out, the more time you spend away from it the harder it is to come back. no more excuses....except one.

i'm at work right now. would you believe that i am working my sixth day in a row. i know call me crazy. 72 hours in 6 days. it is possible. my body is definitely feeling it, maybe even my brain. i have had a few blonde moments (nothing extreme, my patient care has been great). anyways, i had a blonde moment a few weeks back when i switched some shifts around and resulted in me working six days in a row. but don't worry i have a prize at the end....

houston here i come...that's right. texas better watch out, cause there is a new blonde in town. i am flying to houston tomorrow morning after work to visit my best friend megan. can't wait to see her....just a little weekend vacation until sunday morning. it will be nice to see her. plus i'm 23 and working and can do something spontaneous like this. so me crazy.

as far as the rest of my life. i'm back into working out hardcore again, although i need to eat a little bit turns out i am going to hawaii again at the end of february, beginning of march. my two best friends from nursing school and i are going to have our end of nursing school trip, now that we have money, so oahu here i come. that means i need to work on getting a six pack, or i guess i could settle for a two pack. so yeah, kicking it into gear.

the holidays were nice. i spent three days at home. my parents painted their downstairs, so some of it was spent doing manual labor. i do owe them, they have been raising me for the last 23 years. anyways, it turned out nice and i am proud of my mom for picking some bold colors. pictures to come later. hung out with friends on new years, including the infamous taylor calley, who was in town for the holidays. it was very nice to see her. i'm due for a visit to cali to see her and ruby.

other i really think i might buy a car soon. i know i have been saying that, but now i think i'm ready. i'm going to go with the classic honda accord. i can't justify paying so much money for gas on the cr-v right now. sorry, i may be rich, but i ain't that rich.

those are my thoughts. i apologize to those who i have not emailed/called/texted back. i have sort of disappeared for the last six days. hope all is going well.

p.s. it is going to be 73 tomorrow in houston. i need a little sun right now.
