New Moon Rising...

I can't help but giggle...this whole Twilight Saga makes me feel like a teenager. And so I am proud, and yet a bit chagrined, to say I say New Moon FOUR times in less than 48 hours.

My first viewing was at Midnight at a private showing at Thanksgiving Point. I went with my friend Bekky and some girls from work. It was so fun! There was a drawing before the show started and I won the cutest wrought iron basket full of Fall decor from Rod Works. And then there was the movie itself...LOVED IT! It was definitely about a million times better than Twilight. We all had a blast giggling and cat calling every time Jacob Black came on the screen.

Friday afternoon I went to see it with my brother, Ericson, his wife, Keayra, and my niece Kaicee. Definitely just as good the second time. The best part about watching it with Kaicee is you never know what she's going to say. When the Werewolves persue Laurant through the forest she said, "See! I told you this was a scarey movie!"

My third viewing was with Amber! We had so much fun! We went to an event hosted by the Twilight Lexicon I loved all the cat calling that happens during these private showings. We each got a swag bag that had a necklace with a moon pendant. I thought that was pretty cool and wore it the remainder of the day. Right after the movie was over, I had to run to Lehi to meet my family for the next showing.

Kierstan's birthday was earlier in the month, so to celebrate we hit a double feature: New Moon and The Blind Side. It was so fun to see it with my family! It may have been my fourth time seeing it, but I still loved it just as much!

One of the silliest things of all this movie going was how much Cherry Coke I drank. Thrusday night I purchased a New Moon cup that was refillable for the entire weekend. So, every time I headed to the movie theater I stuck it in my purse. That thing must have been filled at least 6 times. I think I could have floated away from all the soda bubbles in my tummy.

Makes The World Taste Better....

Meet My New Best Friend!
I've never been much of a soda drinker...
I've never been much a caffeine junkie...
However, 12 hour Labor and Delivery shifts combined with working and school has caused me to look to my new friend.

I just might make it through the week!

Sometimes you need to Belly Laugh...

Life is {CRAZY} and there {NEVER} seems to be any down time.
Lately, I feel as though I have ceased to exist outside an educational institution.
So, sometimes I just need a good {LAUGH} and I can
{ALWAYS} count on them...


He's witty...He's H-O-T...and best of all
He's {DIRTY}

It was done on a whim...I was filling out my graduation application and came upon the question "Will you be continuing your education in the next year?" Nope. Wasn't planning on it. You see, an Associate Degree of Nursing is an RN. You can do everything some one with a Bachelor of Nursing can do. Pay doesn't increase with a BSN. I've been in school constantly since getting home from my mission. Nope...not continuing my education in the next year. But then...

What would it hurt to apply? I mean, really I figured I had a snowballs chance in Hell of getting accepted. When I didn't get in I could say, "Well, I applied. Bring on the break from school!" without feeling any slacker guilt. Plus, both my sisters are super smart. Kierstan has her masters degree and Ashleigh is working on hers. I'll have my associate degree...you can get an associate degree from a Jr college. So, I suppose you could say there was a matter of pride in the decision to apply as well. Also, I'm the big 3-0. In two years I'll be 32...those years are going to go by whether I'm in school or not. So, why not apply? I submitted my application and didn't really give it a second thought.

October 31 at about 1 a.m. I decieded to check the mail. Inside I found an envelope from UVU Nursing department...and it was THICK! I opened the envelope to read: Congratulations!! You have been accepted to the Advanced Entry Rn-to-BSN program in Spring (January) Semester 2010. And, there really were TWO exclamation points after the word congratulations.

So, I'm in. I'm excited, but...a break really would have been nice.
