The day of my last post.
Today is now August 26th 2014.
One Hundred and Seventy Four days in between.
Not much could happen in that time.. right?
So much has happened! Allow me to share…
In March, I volunteered AND participated in my very first MS Muck Ruckus! It was a ton of fun and I can not wait to participate next year!
In April, My husband and I went through our first cycle of IVF. It was an emotionally and physically exhausting process that unfortunately ended in a chemical pregnancy. This happens when an embryo implants but stops growing, causing a positive test but is not a viable pregnancy.
In May, I graduated with my AS in nursing! Not to mention with high honors.. a 3.79 GPA 🙂
And I could not have done it without my amazing husband, who I celebrated SIX crazy years of marriage with on May 19th ❤
Also in May, We attended a beautiful wedding in SC!
And then went on an awesome cruise to Haiti, Jamaica, Grand Cayman, and Cozumel!
In June, I celebrated my 25th birthday! Nothing too exciting about turning 1/4 century old 😉
I also passed the NCLEX!
We then underwent our second round of IVF. Unfortunately, this was not a success either. But we will keep our chins up and pray that one day some little miracle will call us mommy & daddy.
In July, I began my first job as a registered nurse! It has been such a wonderful experience so far and I can not wait to learn more and more each and every day!
We also started our PALEO journey during the month of July. It has proven to be a success with my husband loosing almost 25lbs and myself down 20lbs. This has been one of the best changes we have made to our daily lifestyle and we will definitely continue!
In August, I started my journey to further my education as a student at the University of Central Florida! Here, I will obtain my BS in Nursing which will allow me better career opportunities and allow me to become a nurse practitioner 🙂
Lastly, and most recently, my AMAZING husband bought me a brand spankin’ new car! With my hard work and dedication during the nursing program and finding a job almost immediately, he says that I deserved this! My little 2008 Toyota Yaris S was swapped in for a GORGEOUS ruby red 2014 Ford Fusion Hybrid SE! She has black interior, a touch screen, and a sunroof! Not to mention the AWESOME gas mileage 🙂
So as you can see, the last five-ish months have been pretty busy for me. It’s been such a roller coaster of emotions.
I plan to blog more often (for real this time), Hopefully at least one post a week.
But for now, I leave you with a picture that my mother in law recently took on a trip to Yellowstone National Park. It makes me realize that there is a bigger picture in this crazy life of mine and whether or not I see it, it is there. God works in mysterious ways and it will all make sense later ❤
