Oh Hey....

....It's my birthday!

So far it's been an interesting day. I woke up this morning for class and found out my mom is sick. Boo. Totally bummed that she won't be able to help me celebrate with my family tonight! Then I had my 3rd med-surg exam this morning. Mostly liver, pancreas and coagulation stuff. I don't know how I did, but I am sure glad it's over!! And, I just turned in a 14 page paper! Whew, I'm tired ;)

*Here we are touching Howard's Rock...Go Tigers!*
I have some of the best friends though! I had a purple and orange gift bag sitting on my desk when I walked in the classroom and was handed a multitude of birthday cards :) So far, I have some new pens, my favorite chocolate in the world (Ghiradelli dark chocolate with a caramel middle...yum!), a Target card, and a STARBUCKS card! My friends know the way to my heart--that's for sure :)

Tonight, my grandparents are having a birthday dinner for me with my special request: Mixed green salad with goat cheese and home made citrus dressing, steak, mashed potatoes, and asparagus. Can. not. wait. It's going to be delicious! And to make it better, my cousin Amy is home on spring break and will get to help me celebrate! (And of course, Tyler will be there too!)
*You didn't think we would forget Marley in the engagement pictures, did you?! I'm thinking he's the only dog who ever got to touch the rock ;)*

I'm also really looking forward to this weekend :) One clinical day stands between me and spring break--I think that may just be the best birthday present ever haha! On Saturday, David is taking me out for a birthday dinner at Nami. If you've been reading long, you know this is my favorite restaurant in Anderson, SC! there is only one so if you're ever driving through, you definitely need to stop at and eat. We are going to be going with Jess and Jake :)

And then I'll just spend the rest of my spring break relaxing at David's, working on some papers, Kaplan questions for NCLEX, and visiting some hospitals for potential jobs.

Hopefully I'll be updating a little more over the next week or so :) But Happy Almost Weekend, everyone!
