One Year Anniversary!

Well I clearly took a little break from blogging but I am back! I will just fill you in on whats been going on with us the past month and a half :)

-Garren finished spring semesters with AMAZING grades :) He is so smart. He also just finished Microbiology in Maymester with an A. He is studying hard for the GRE in a few weeks.

-He is taking Chemistry I and II this summer semester.

On May 6th we celebrated our very first anniversary. I can’t believe we have been married for over a year now! It has certainly flown by, and has been the best year of my life. I love being married to my best friend.

To celebrate we stayed at a resort in St George. It was perfect because it was a nice getaway, and we didn’t have to spend half the weekend driving in the car to get there. He spoiled me :)

I’m still working in the hospital, and we recently took up swimming.  Now that we have been married for a year becoming parents is always in the fore front of my mind. No this is not an announcement. Its still about a year in the future, however I am definitely preparing now by losing the weight I gained over the past couple of years, saving lots of money, and ye,s even refinishing baby furniture. My need to be a mom is unlike ayn other desire I have ever felt, and I am determined to be the best possible mom I can be.

Garren applies to grad school this summer! Its very nerve racking. I know he will get in and I just need to have enough faith. I am a planner by nature, and not knowing where we will be moving to in a years time Freaks me out! Luckily I also love adventure, so I am very excited about moving some where new with him :)

I got my wisdom teeth out Thursday. It was long over due. The first day was HORRIBLE. I told Garren I would rather deal with pain than be numb any day of my life. They tell you to take an antibiotic and the pain meds as soon as you get home… Well when your numb for 10 hours after it and cant keep water in your mouth that’s virtually impossible. Pain I can deal with. Just another reason (though significantly less important) as to why I will never get an epidural when having a baby.

Two favorite new movies : The Avengers and What to Expect when Your Expecting. SO good!

Sorry I don’t have any pictures!

10 Months of Wedded Bliss!

We have officially, as of yesterday, been married for 10 months! Our one year anniversary is just around the corner! Ahh! I am so excited!

Any way the past week and a half has proved that I am by far the luckiest woman alive. My husband is seriously amazing. I got my gallbladder out last Tuesday. (I know I blogged about it but I have NO recollection of writing it, ha ha ) He took amazing care of me  and I am sure it was exhausting for him. I am doing so much better now and even though last week was not the greatest, I don’t regret it at all. I don’t feel nauseous every time I eat! After the last 6 months, I was afraid that was just going to be apart of my every day life.

I also have started a new position at work, I am still doing the same thing, I just work a few more hours a week and i am up in the front registration of the hospital. (The new hours make my insurance cheaper, and obviously give us more money.) The down side is I love working in ER registration, and now I don’t get the opportunity to work there as much. I will still get to be on call there every 4th weekend. The girls in the RDC are awesome though so I am glad I get to work with them.

Garren started his GRE prep class last week and will be taking the test in May! He has 3 classes he will be taking over the summer and then in late July we start the application process for grad school! It freaks me out a little bit, as most of you know, I LOVE adventure so bring it on! So far the schools we are applying to for his doctorate in Physical Therapy are:

Eastern Washington University- (Washington State)
University of Montana
Gannon University (Erie, Pennsylvania)
University of St. Augustine (Florida)
New York Medical College (Valhalla, New York)
Bellarmine University (Kentucky)
Franklin Pearce University (New Hampshire)
George Washington University (Washington DC)
Thomas Jefferson University (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania)
University of Maryland-Eastern Shore
University of the Pacific (Stockton, California)

 

Our top choice right now is St. Augustine! He is also planning on applying for the Allied Health Scholarship with the Air Force! Any one have thoughts or knowledge about the schools above?
