17 years.

I was in school for 17 years. I've been graduated for a week and a half. thats it. And I'm already bored. While I was in school I was begging to be done with it already..but now that its over...I just don't know what to do with myself. Its amazing how quickly I can get bored. But 17 years was a long time. I literally can't remember a time when I wasn't in school. I did have those lovely summer breaks growing up, but since I started college there literally hasn't been a semester that I haven't had some classes. I didn't take summer off. I was always in some sort of class. Its really weird now.

So I need a new hobby. And I don't know what that hobby is yet. But in a week and a half I'm going to have a lot more time on my hands. I've decided not to transfer my nursing license over to washington for the summer and instead I am going to nanny but that doesn't start until the middle of June. So I may die of boredom until then if I don't find a new hobby. So do you have any ideas for me? And it can't be to expensive of a hobby either. I need help people. Pinterest has become my hobby and I'm obsessed with that...but it does get old.

So I need a hobby....help me. :)

I graduated!!!!! FINALLY! I feel like it has taken forever for me to get my bachelors after I got my RN. It was so worth it though. For my graduation my parents took us out to the Roof in Salt Lake! Brock and I had never been there and it was a yummy occasion! I decided that I didn't want to go to Rexburg again to walk and man am I glad because that meal was to die for! Thanks Mom and Dad for taking us! :) I now have 5 initials after my name! RN-BSN!

the view at the Roof...beautiful!

Oh Vegas...

For my birthday weekend and to celebrate my graduation Brock and I decided that it was time to head down to Vegas for a fun weekend! Sadly...it rained and was stormy most of the time that we were there so there wasn't much pool time..but we did get to explore the strip quite a bit, shop, and eat yummy food! :) Brock hadn't been there since he was a kid and he got a good taste of what Vegas is like. We got to go see the Cirque du Soleil show "O" at the Bellagio which was beyond fabulous and I highly recommend it! We couldn't believe some of the stuff that they could do and walked out feeling very happy with how we spent our money.

Before the show!
We did the "Coke around the world" testers
It was such a fun weekend for us to get away from the routine of things and just have fun with each other. We got to relax a lot and get away from dang school! We can't wait to get to go back! :)

Chicken Pot Pies

Anybody like chicken pot pies? Well we do. And I still haven't been able to master them without mom yet but over the past few months we've all made them a few times. And they are delicious.
I do the crust
Brock puts in the veggies
Mom does everything else...she doesn't like pics though :)
And the best part....you put them in the freezer and take them out any day that your feeling lazy :) 

Day of Love

So I'm back to blogging. School is over! :) And now I'm catching up! And it starts with Valentine's Day! Our first as a married couple. And of course..it happened to be on a day that I was working! But we still made the most of it.

I'm not a big breakfast person, but Brock loves his breakfast. So I made him pancakes, bacon, and eggs and got the best orange juice :) This was a big deal because since I don't really like breakfast...I don't know how to make it! But I did it! ...with a little help :) Brock had chocolates waiting for me when I woke up (He knows how to get to my heart)
Then it was to work for me...and Brock went skiing with Nate! (Not fair!) During work he brought me my favorite lunch..Cafe Rio and then when I got off he picked me up to go home and change! When we got home there was flower waiting for me and a cute card. Love that man.

Finally to top it all off...he surprised me and took me to Tucanos!!! :) By far my favorite restaurant. We had such a fun time. They had it all nice for Valentines. It was so fun! I'm so grateful to have a guy like Brock with me forever! :)
