I moved to Oklahoma City!

I moved to Oklahoma City, and I'm sure anyone who reads this blog is aware of that (although I clearly don't blog often so this may be more for my benefit) :).  For any who aren't, I came here for Nursing School.  And while I did cry all the way from Santa Barbara to Texas I think, I think I'm gonna like it here. :)  I thought I'd share a few things I've learned since I've been here.

1) It's better to be sad when you leave a place, than relieved. 
2) Your family and friends are always with you and it's AMAZING that they know just when to call or text or email.
3) People here are REALLY nice!  A girl in my program who I met at orientation let me crash with her and her roommates the first day because I had no where to go.  On top of that she bought me dinner, took me on the tour of the city and continues to be my buddy!!!  What?!
4) Sometimes it's okay for food to make you feel better! :)  Anyone who comes here, I'm taking you to Big Truck Tacos.  www.bigtrucktacos.com
5) Girlfriends rule!  I've made some AWESOME girlfriends in my program.  Happy happy!
6) Oklahoma is different from California . . . or DC . . . or Washington State . . . or really anywhere I lived, and I'm into it.
7) They have a professional basketball team here which means that I can go see my Celtics on February 22nd.  Hollah ballahs!
8) Again, people are REALLY nice!
9) Sleeping in a real bed is the only way to go.
10) Nursing school is way hard, but WAY COOL!



I'm a horrible blogger, but THIS is not horrible . . .

Oh Henry!



Three Weeks!!

I have 3 weeks left of my six week break from school, which I haven't had in 20 years.  I'm making a 3 week bucket list.  If anyone has any recommendations, let me know. :)

1) Spend a day in LA as a tourist.
2) Walk on the beach every day.
3) Give something every day (service, a note, a gift)
4) Read a book just for fun all day.
5) Bike to the beach.
6) Go to Disneyland.
7) Keep a journal.
8) Take the coastal train to San Diego.
9) See a concert.
10) Make yoga a habit again.



Birthday Fun!

It was my sister Katherine's birthday last week.  Here she is in one of my favorite photos from the holiday season.  Happy Birthday Kate!  Love you.

P.S. We were going to do a fun beach picnic for her birthday but decided against it because it was a little chilly.  Here is a cute little craft I came up for the picnic.  Did you know that you can put lunch bags through the printer?  Oh the possibilities . . .



Six Precious Hours

We had all 10 children, 3 grandchildren, parents and in-laws together for about 6 hours on New Year's Eve. I love these people.
