Happy Saturday! Here are my "current" currently's.
"If I Stay". It's an easy summer read...which I'm in dire need of, with my poor reading skills lately. It's about the outer-body experience of a teenager who got in a tragic car accident. She's watching her body in the ICU, and trying to decide whether to stay or go. It's really interesting to the nurse in me.
It is looking like the next guarenteed weekend Ryan & I will have together is in August when we go to Minnesota for a week @ the lakes w/ family! Lame that he works so much during July, but I'm focusing on the positive!! Cannot wait to see family and meet my niece/God-daughter Evelyn!
I'm really loving the maxi dresses. Only for evenings out. It's too damn hot to wear a maxi dress during the day in Tucson (for this girl, anyhow).
Iced Green tea with Raspberry @ Starbucks. I've sipping that as I write this blog.
Also Gin & Tonic is my alcoholic DOC (drink of choice) lately.
My Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday runs with my girlfriends. Our group has built up to an "wolf pack" of 6 of us! It's such a great energy to start the day!
Hmm...Last night I made a really delicious thai recipe with chicken, broccoli, peppers, and pad thai noodles. The smells it fills our home with is so savory and delicious!
Frost - a gelato shop about 10 minutes from our house. It's my weekly treat. There are so many flavors, I want to try them all by the end of the year! (What a goal, huh?) Last week I tried Peach Bellini - it has real chunks of peach in it. Mmm....
What I want to be when I grow up. I plan to stay in this current role for about 3 more years. It's scary and exciting to think about where the road will take me....
Joyful. I have to say over the past few months, I've been in a really good place in my life. Love my job, my marriage is happy, I'm surrounded by amazing friendships, there's plans to see family in the near future.....cannot complain
Current New Find
The Soma Half Ironman in Phoenix this October. I wanted to do it last year, but we were still suck in Texas. This week a few of my friends & I decided we are doing it! Training begins Monday!
Currently I'm wearing pink jean shorts and a navy sleeveless button down.
We're getting our house painted (exterior) - and we picked a company 1 month ago. They showed up with their pressure washers on Tuesday morning without any notification. I'm happy they are getting started, but we wish they would have notified us! We are hosting a pool party tomorrow, and our backyard looks like a construction zone.
I did an acrylic painting this week! Okay, don't start calling me an artist. My girlfriends and I went to a place called "Brush & Bottle". It's BYOB (and snacks) - and an art teachers walks you through a painting. It was so much fun!! Will definitely do it again!
Current Wish List
A wet suit for my triathlon. I really don't want to spend $100. Luckily, I have until October - so I am going to start with Goodwill :)
Getting my PALS (Pediatric Advanced Life Support) re-cert. I can no longer work in the ER unless I get that. I need to start picking up a shift here and there to stay current.
