Summertime List

Sooooo it's been a long time since I posted anything. I can't believe it's already the middle of July. Summer is moving right along and life has been pretty good lately. Since I have a bunch of random things to post about, I've decided it's list time again :)

  • I will turn 30 in less than 2 weeks. And surprisingly I'm really okay with it. My life has taken a couple of really big, but positive turns lately and it has put things in perspective for me. I have realized age is really not that big of a deal. So I'm looking forward to celebrating a new phase of life. I am happy and liking where things are headed.
  • I have really amazing sisters. They have supported me through some big things lately and I am so thankful for them. 
  • I love love love working in the Pediatric ER. I didn't realize how much I missed it. At times I must say I contemplate the idea of maybe going back to it full time. I work with some great nurses and doctors and I enjoy taking care of the kiddos so much.
  • Summertime, how I love all your trashy reality shows. Yes, I probably shouldn't watch them, but well I do and they are great :) Some new favorites on the list year are Cheer Perfection and Beverly Hills Nannies. Also on my viewing schedule are Toddlers and Tiaras, Big Brother, So You Think You Can Dance, Project Runway, and Design Star.
  • My BF Todd is really great. He is my best friend and I really can't imagine life without him. I am more and more thankful for him everyday. I would post a picture, but he might hurt me :) not really but he's not so much a camera fan (one of many things we have in common).
  • I am going to be an aunt in September! 
  • The best Diet Dr. Pepper is sold from the drive thru at the McDonalds near my house. This has been discovered from some extensive research.
  • I finally made it back to Nashville the beginning of June and it was so great to see my girls. They are pretty amazing
  • I have become obsessed with Etsy lately. There are so many cute things on there, but man some people have a really high opinion of their handy work! 
That's what I've got for now. Sorry for some of the vagueness, but I promise if you tune in in August I will clear things up.

1. Cheer perfection and Beverly Hills Nanny? Both sound totally up my alley. ESPECIALLY since I don't get cable and have to get my Teen Mom fix streaming from MTV.com... except that they've blocked it because of the whole Viacom/Direct TV thing. I'm missing my weekly fill of unquality programming...
2. Are we really 30 in less than 2 weeks? July is going by too quickly. I really don't feel 30, do you? It sounds like you are handling it well. It just weirds me out. Not sure why :)
3. Agreed about etsy. Some stuff is really cute, but some just looks dumb and REALLY homemade (like in a bad way).
4. Oooh! Diet Dr Pepper. Yum. :)

Oh. And most importantly: Congrats on being an aunt very soon :)

1.They are 2 quality shows :) The Nanny one is on ABC Family and the Cheer one is on TLC just in case you want to check them out.
2. I know kind of hard to believe we will be 30! I don't feel it and maybe that is why I am ok with it.
And thanks for the congrats!

Okay - first of all, welcome back. Good to see you again and catch up a bit!

Second - 30 ROCKS!!! I am SERIOUSLY loving leaving my 20's behind and working my way quickly to 31. I'm more confident, I feel less at loose ends, and things that people said THEN, just really don't matter NOW. Happy early 30! ;-)

Also - WHO is making you an aunt again?!?!?! S or R???

And finally - more about the BF please! :-)
