Yummy cake

Last night Nic and I ate out at Olive Garden. My sister Alana had recommended the lemon cream cake for dessert and so we tried it. SOOOO GOOD! Try it next time you eat at Olive Garden.

Summer days

Top reasons why I can't wait for Spring/Summer/Fall in Utah:

1. Picnics and campfire dinners in the canyon

2. Playing softball and going to softball games

3. Bike rides

4. Hiking

5. Flip flops
Or maybe it doesn't have to be hot outside to wear flip flops...

Demolition of Deseret Towers

It's so weird seeing DT torn down. Nic was really sad when we watched the wrecking ball knock his freshman "Q-Hall" down to scraps few months ago. Here are some pictures I took today of another tower that is almost all the way gone.

Tonya and Alana, wasn't this the dorm you lived in?

Crazy day at work

Today was one of those days where I questioned whether I was in the right profession or not.

Oh boy! Between tranfusing blood to one patient, transferring another quickly declining patient to the ICU, calling up grumpy doctors (I don't blame them, I wouldn't want to have their job), not having a nurse's aid half the day, while at the same time trying not to ignore my other three patients, I was exhausted. On a normal day I'm supposed to go off shift at 6:30 and I didn't leave until 8:00 because I had so much charting to catch up on. The thing that always makes it okay at the end of the day is the people I work with. My patients were so kind and my co-workers were so understanding and helpful. This makes the stress of being a nurse all worth it!

Roman Shades

So I decided that I wanted to make some curtains for our bedroom and Alana sent me excellent instructions for making roman shades! I made a lot of errors in these curtains simply because I was too excited to see the finished product. Nic kept asking me why I was rushing through all of the steps. I'm just excited that they actually work! Here are some pics.
