July already?!

It's time for the monthly update. I feel sheepish saying this, for I know the summer goes WAY TOO FAST. But, summer isn't all that pleasant in AZ. 109, 105, 106, 109, hot hot hot. Plus, the closer to August 20 (graduation) - the happier I am.

But, I will continue to pray this summer goes slowly for all my loves up north! :)

Current Music:

-My sister Lisa burned a Glee Season 1 soundtrack for me, and I am definitely enjoying it. I've also loving the Neil Diamond - it frequented our camping trip :)
Current Shame-Inducing Guilty Pleasure:
Red licorice. I bought a bag for our camping trip, didn't finish the bag on the trip - so have been snacking on it. Yum. I love licorice. Black or red.

Current Colors:
Anything but purple! I am so sick of wearing my ugly, purple, scrubs. Purple is my school color. I will never wear this color again after I graduate......

I did buy a orangy-pink colored sundress a few weeks ago. Sounds ugly - but with a nice tan...it's kind of striking! I'm kinda digging that color!
Current Obsessions:
Camping. I fell absolutely in love with it last weekend. There is nothing more amazing than being out in the wilderness with no phones, no worries, no concerns! And it's so gorgeous! I am obsessed with waking up in a tent hearing the world. :)
Current Drink:
Besides way too much coffee......

Diet Cherry 7-up. Yum. It claims to have Vitamin E?! :) So that means it's good for me!

Current Song:
Hmmm... Because of my current Neil Diamond kick - I will say "Forever in Bluejeans"
Current Movie:
I'm going to be honest - I haven't seen a movie in a while! About 2 weeks ago, however - Ryan had a "poker night" on a Friday. Which meant I took a break from studying, poured myself a glass of wine, and watched  a chick flick - "When Harry Met Sally". And that sure did brighten my day!

Current TV Shows:
The Office. I love that show. It brightens my day any day.
Current Wish-List:
New running shoes. A new stethoscope (which I will be purchasing upon graduation in 53 days). Rain! A decrease in the temperatures.
Current Needs:
-My sunburnt scalp to heal. I was a good girl on our trip - and applied sunscreen - but our day out on the boat I got a burnt scalp. Owwww.
-More days in the week!
Current Triumph:
Official grades haven't been posted - but - I am pretty sure (how things are looking) I got an A in Critical Care. I was shooting for better than a C. So yay!

I went a whole weekend without showering, and didn't complain ONCE. This is huge.
Current Bane of my Existence:
Percutaneous Coronary Interventions. My Capstone.

Current Goals:
-Have a great experience in Practicum and learn as much possible.
-Write a bangin' Capstone presentation.
-Swim 1.5 miles. That may not be a lot to some - but I am NOT a "swimmer" by nature.

Current Indulgence:
Cantelope and peaches. It's super cheap here this time of the year.
Oh, and pickled beets. Holy cow, have I been eating a lot of those lately! Yum. Ryan always knows when I've been snacking on them because my tongue and lips will be REALLY red.
Current Blessings:
-My education! The end is in site.
-The world that God has given us. I truely got up-close and personal with how amazing nature is this past weekend!

Current Slang or Saying:
I have been saying "Oh Lord" or "Oh Lordy" quite frequently lately.

Current (Fav) Outfit:
Swimming suit! The only way I can be outdoors and not miserable is in a pool!
Current Excitement:
It's the 4th of July weekend! Yay! Even though I am extremely bummed we won't be at the lakes with family - we have a fun weekend planned anyways! I'm also excited to start my practicum clinicals next Friday!

Current Mood:
Well now that I'm getting "a handle" on my Capstone paper - I am light and happy! But, Lord, this morning - I was a MONSTER of a crab! :-(

1. Camping is the best. Our favorite family memories are from camping trips. And, obviously, Paul and I continue to love the experience. When we turned 40 I declared my days of sleeping on the ground were over, so we became campers Paul and I used to make fun of in our backpacking days and moved "up" to a camper. Now, we still call it camping even though we have a refrigerator, shower and air conditioner. But, this way we can afford to travel and see the beautiful spots in this country. We do want to come to Arizona...in the winter!!!
2. Licorice is always what we buy for road trips. I love black, the rest of the family loves red.
3. Harry Met Sally: great movie. "I'll have what she's having."
4. Keep us posted on your paper. Hang in there!!!

Can't wait to hear more about your camping trip - sounds like it was amazing and was just the getaway you needed!

Way to go on the A! I know it's not official yet, but I am sure it will happen. Way to go you! I didn't doubt for a moment that you'd get an A, though!
