The Weekend

This is a very surreal, and odd feeling. For, it is Sunday night, and I am looking forward to Monday - and ready for the week to begin. I must say that looking back on the weekend - it was one of the most revitalizing one's I've had in a while!

So here it is!

This weekend was kicked off early (Thursday night) by....
  • Coming home from a 13.5 hour day of clinicals to find.....
  • An invitation under my pillow for......
  • A weekend Staycation at the Star Pass Resort &Spa (check it out!) on our...
  • 1 year anniversary, which happens August 8! (Wow, that year went fast)
  • All this has been up Ryan's sleeve for the past week. I am quite pleased, and SO ready for a little "get-away" from reality!

Accomplishments of the weekend included.....
  • I finished writing all the content for my Capstone presentation
  • ........Which relieved POUNDS of stress from my shoulders.
  • After my tomato plant's near-death experience (from our camping trip - absense) - I have tomatoes again! And many daisies! And beautiful vincas.
  • I learned that having a melt-down over school gets nothing accomplished.
  • I purchased my "Interview Outfit" for the interviews coming up in the next months dealing with school, job interviews (hopefully!), and my Capstone day

Something I learned from this weekend .....
  • Business suits make women look very "put together" and "accomplished"
  • .......I look like a 12 year old in a Flight Attendant costume. *sigh*
  • But I did find something that worked, with my husband's critiquing.
  • It is unbelievable peaceful running early early Sunday morning next to the Pecan fields before the rest of the world wakes up.
  • The Strawberry-Lime Real Fruit Slush from Sonic will give you a very bad headache if drank too fast. But is so good it's worth the headache!
Big news from the weekend.....
  • We redeemed our free airline vouchers to buy tickets home for Thanksgiving (which would've cost $1200. We paid nothing for them!)
  • I registered for the Tucson Marathon on 12/12/10!

Hope you all had a fantastic weekend! And here's to a great week :)

Ryan is so thoughful! It is hard t believe that you have already been married almost one year - they go by so quickly, don't they? I'm trying to remember our first anniversary, but don't - think your Dad was on a cruise in the Navy!
