It’s been a couple of months since I last updated you guys on all of the crazy that’s been going on with out lives. In March, I talked about my husband having his surgery date set, opening an Etsy shop and a few other things…which you can read up on here, if you haven’t. Now this time around…life has gotten even busier and crazier!

My husband had surgery late April and is doing great! The first few weeks of having nothing but liquids was a bit tough for him, he got sick of broth and protein shakes pretty quickly. But thankfully he is now eating solids and introducing new foods little by little. Now, it’s my turn! I don’t have a date set yet…I just need to have a sleep study done and wait for a date. I’m crossing my fingers it’s soon…I’m getting anxious.

Now…the Etsy shop. I’ve honestly had so much going on that I haven’t had any time to devote to that. I honestly think I might push the opening date for late this year…perhaps around fall time? Surprisingly, A LOT goes into opening your own shop and since my shop will be different, it’s a bit crazier. So at this time, I have NO clue when it will be opening, but it’s definitely still a big goal for 2017. 

Speaking of goals…I also plan on launching different types of services that I will be offering. I won’t go into too much detail, but get excited! No specific date in mind yet, but the bulk of the work has been finished, just working on some finishing touches. 

I am officially off for summer break! I’m so glad and thankfully to be able to work as a school nurse. Most people think I don’t do anything, or just sit and hand out bandaids all day long. But that’s so far from the truth. Yes, I do have some days of not a whole lot going on, but other days can be hectic, filled with angry parents, and kiddos vomiting everywhere. I love my job, but this nice long break is so needed and much appreciated. However, I haven’t felt like I’ve been “off.” I’ve been cleaning out closets, the garage and even our storage unit. We have so much “stuff,” so we are going to put together a garage sale and hope to get rid of it all.

We also had graduations to attend last week. My little brother in law graduated and I now feel super old! I’ve been in his life since he was 7…so to watch him walk the stage was definitely bittersweet. Oh and speaking of school related things. I don’t think I have updated you guys on my real estate licensing. I’m finished with all of my school work…yay! And have taken and passed the national portion of the BIG exam. I now lack the state portion…which I can hopefully take before having surgery. 

I’ve also been so fortunate to be able to attend a few blogger events with some of the blogger babes I’ve met in my area. You can read all about our happy hour fun and flower crown party

You guys…I’m telling you, life has been crazy busy! But I wouldn’t have it any other way. Now tell me, what have you been up to lately? Any fun trips planned?
