Im an official BSN College Graduate!

So yesterday was my official graduation from the SUU nursing department! it was such a great day, my mom, dad and littler sister were able to come down, we were sad we couldn't have jesse's family there but they were there with us in our thoughts. So our Graduation from the nursing department is a little different, its called a Pinning ceremony where we get an official SUU nursing pin, and the director of the nursing department pins us. We had  a few student speakers, the director talk and then a slide show or out last 2 years together. We then had one of our teachers read thank you letters we wrote to our families as we walked across the stage to get our pin, lamps and rose. so yeah it was a great day and I think our pinning went great, (ps we had to plan the whole thing by ourselves, and i must say we did a pretty great job!) so after graduation my family and I went to Benja's a Thai food resturant in St. George, my family was a little nervous they had never had Thai food before but i told them not to worry! haha they ended up loving it, me and jesse told them so! so after that we just hung out in St. George before going home, then me and jesse went to hang out with some of my nursing friends and celebrate the rest of our night! yay i can't believe im done, it feels so weird i dont think it has actually hit yet, that i dont have to go to school next week, Haha. i know i still have one big hurtle left to over come and that is passing my boards but im going to study hard and i know i can do it!

I just want to say thank you to everyone that helped me through these last two years! to all my friends for the support, my Family for loving me and being there for me, for all the people who let me crash at there place for early morning clinicals, and to my husband for being such a loving man, and really being my best friend and encouraging me the whole way through and for being my shoulder to cry on. I love you so much honey and I don't know what I would do with out you!

Im going to miss you little brother!

So my little brother Austin left on his mission today :( its a bitter sweet day, i know he is doing the right thing and will be a great missionary, but i know im going to miss him so much! we were always so close and got a long well, but he is going to have a great experience and i can write to him. so i guess i will live.

on a happier note, i was in Phoenix this past weekend and can i tell you how much i love Phoenix, i have never been before, and i just fell in love with the city, i cant wait to go back! so i was in phoenix for the mid year NSNA confrence, it is a confrence for nursing students. it was a good time not as great as i had expected it, but i had a lot of fun. we got to see the site of phoenix, went to the zoo, and just had a blast. i learned some good things for school and got to talk to some recruiters which helped me feel more comfortable for appying for jobs.

oh and graduation is 4 weeks away! its so scary and exciting, i feel and know i have so much to do still, but i can't wait to be done with school!

Jesse has found a new activity he loves down here, he has been going shooting like twice a week, he has his dads old 22 rifle and he loves going shooting when ever he can, but that means now he really wants a shotgun, and a pistol. so at least i know something to get him for christmas :)

I can't wait to be a nurse!

So this is just a quick update, so school has started and it is going well, classes are not as crazy as they have been in the past. lots of busy work but that"s to be expected. so this last week i was able to start my preceptor. for those of you who don't know what this is, it is like an internship, i get paired up with a nurse and follow them around, basically doing there job and having them mentor and evaluate me. I must say that i am LOVING this! I have been paired up with 2 nurses, who both are amazing! i am learning so much and am finally feeling like a real nurse. I can't wait to get back to the hospital and finish my shifts! i just love the feeling of helping people, and being able to make there life a little easier. I can't wait to be graduated and to be doing this for the rest of my life!

Happy Birthday Jesse!!!

I know that is really late, but on June 28th, jesse turned the big 24! :) we did a lot of fun stuff for his birthday, since his birthday was on a sunday and we have church at 9am, i decided to make jesse his breakfast birthday on saturday. i made him blueberry pancakes, with magelby's syrup (which is amazing!) this was at jesse's request. they turned out really yummy. after breakfast we threw on our swimsuits, and grabbed roxy and headed to Kanarraville to hike to the falls. it was a really fun hike, Jesse had never been on this hike before so i enjoyed taking him on it. Roxy really enjoyed it too, until we got to the water part. haha. after the hike we headed home to clean up then drove down to Mongolian BBQ in St. George adn had some yummy dinner, this is probably one of jesse's favorite resturants. well after a long fun day we went home and watched a movie. The next day on his official birthday, he got sang to in primary! :) which he loved, then after church i went to work on his cake, I wanted to make is special so i put food coloring in the batter, which turned out really cool, then i decorated it so it looked like the batman symbol, which turned out awesome, i am really impressed with this cake. haha jesse loved it and i wouldn't let him see it until it was done, he had no idea i was going to make it look like batman! so for dinner we had homemade tacos and cake. it was awesome!

Happy Birthday Jesse! I love you so much, you are a great husband and i had so much fun with you!

At the mouth of the slot canyon!

smile! jesse posing in front of his bday breakfast.

haha jesse modeling the gifts from his mom! the cake Before!

After! Smile Love!

This last weekend, my best friend Carolyn came down to visit, it was a lot of fun, i set her up with my friend mike, we hung out all weekend, on friday we made hobo dinners up the canyon, then came back to our place and watched a movie. On saturday me and care drove down to st. george where we did a lot of shopping, which was great, i have missed having a shopping buddy. when we got back we jumped into our suits grabbed jesse and mike and headed to the Meadow Hot Springs. it had been 2 years since i had been so i was nervous about finding the right spot, well come to find out i didn't exatly remember how to get there, haha we ended up driving around for like 2 hours, then we decided to head home, but as we were heading back i saw the turn off, we had drove right past it. i felt like a dummy, but it ended up being a blast, and well worth the adventures we had finding it. :) after hanging out at the hot springs we headed home, and stopped at dennys at 3am and had breakfast! Im so glad Care got to come visit, i have really missed my best friend! This has been a good summer so far.

Me and Care!

The awesome sign in front of the hot springs. NO NUDITY! Carolyn and Mike

Enjoying the hot springs, and the random guys in the back.

Me and jesse have added a new member to our family! we got a puppy and her name is Roxy! she is a hound, terrier mix, and the cutest dog ever i love her so much!! she can be a little devil sometimes, but she is still a puppy so we hope she grow out of it! :)

So jesse and i have just been working lots, Gandolfo's is going well, its still kinda slow but he has high hopes for the summer! other than work, the first week of may, i went to California with a bunch of my nursing classmates, we stayed in LA, and the main part of our trip is when we went to the PRICE IS RIGHT!!! it was so awesome! we made shirts that said drew pick me, i may be your nurse someday! it was so surreal, i told myself im not going to get all excited and act like an idiot like most people do on the show but its insane how exicting it is, we had one of our friends get called up, Alysha, it was awesome, once they called her name, everyone freaked out! haha so yeah she got called up, and she got on stage, she won a brandnew computer, 40 in plasma tv, and an ipod, it was pretty sweet! it was so fun! i suggest if you are ever in LA you need to go to the price is right!

my sushi experience!
