School has taken over my life, and I want it back!

Only 5 more weeks of classes and clinical, then I go into my exams!! I can't believe it! It still doesn't feel real. I think I'm trying to not get myself too excited, just in case something comes up or I fail a class and won't finish school this year. So far, everything is okay though! Hopefully it stays that way :)

My mom sent me this quote in an email the other night. You know when you hear the EXACT thing you need to hear at the EXACT moment you need to hear it? Well this quote was that for me. I was knee-deep in completing my assignments and was feeling quite overwhelmed with it all and didn't think I would get it all done. I love how moms just know sometimes :) They are amazing!

Do not be impatient with your seemingly slow progress. Do not try to run faster than you presently can. If you are studying, reflecting and trying, you are making progress whether you are aware of it or not. A traveler walking the road in the darkness of night is still going forward. Someday, some way, everything will break open, like the natural unfolding of a rosebud.

Don't Ya Just Love The New Look??!

Cause I sure do! Yay! I think it looks fantastic! I am totally loving the colours too. OH and that adorable little owl divider - I'm melting over the cuteness! And I feel quite proud that I was able to pull off even putting that in there successfully  :)

Today is POURING rain here. Along with occaisonal hail and thunder. Oh its also FREEZING!

We've been putting off turning on the heat, because well its only the first week in October, but alas we could not fight it any longer. Well I could have, I'm happy to bury myself underneath blankets and layers. But Mike had enough and turned it on. I really think Brady appreciates it, he's actually laying on top of blankets today rather than underneath them. It's nice to see his sweet smooshy face some more  :)

A sort of embarassing tour of our bedroom

I have a HUGE list of things I want. If only I had the time and money! I can't wait until next year when I'll actually be working and will actually get to stroke some things off of my list :D

So, one of the things that I think we need is a bedroom set, art, and decorations for our bedroom. It is seriously pathetic and looks like a high school boy lives there. We are still using Mike's set that he had in high school, which explains the teenage boy look. Not sexy or romantic at all. I did splurge on some new bedding, which I LOVE! So that is exciting!
Just look at this depressing sight!!

Everything looks empty in our room because of the lack of art and nice decor.

Empty right? And yes the room's a mess, and yup that's Brady in bed. Also, excuse the bra sitting there. Ahem. Moving on!
So, yes. I can't wait to cross a nice dark wood sleigh bed set off of our list of things we need. Hope you enjoyed the tour of our messy boudoir!
