Christmas is and will always be my favorite holiday, but I am SO excited about halloween this year! I don’t worship demons or anything but I have always loved to dress up as something I am not for a day and eat candy. This is the first time I have lived in a house where we will be getting trick-or-treaters! I have already been planning halloween for a few weeks 🙂 . I am a little broke this year #joblessnursingstudent, so I have found cheap decoration ideas on pinterest!
I have been saving toilet paper rolls for a couple of weeks now. I plan on getting glow sticks from the Dollar Tree and putting them in toilet paper rolls with eyes cut out like these to put in the bushes on halloween night.
I plan on dressing up also, and I have had my eye on this costume since right after last halloween. I saw it on another blog that I follow.
I have already started on this wreath 🙂
I really like this too, and don’t think it would be too hard.
I really like these but gauze is expensive so I will have to see if I can find some at the Dollar Tree lol.
Carving a pumpkin is a LOT of work, so I am really digging these pumpkins!
So yeah I am so excited and cannot wait until I have my own pictures to share!
Last week was so busy. I had clinical rotations in the emergency department, three tests, and I signed up to sell Scentsy! Also, a couple weeks ago my husband and I decided to make Friday our weekly date night. I think we are like most couples these days and we get so wrapped up in our jobs (in my case, school), we have trouble making sure make quality time for each other. Anyways he had Friday off so we spent the whole day doing stuff together :). I love our relationship because we can make running errands fun. We ran some errands and then went to see The Watch. It was really funny in an obnoxious silly kind of way.
Also on Friday I started a project I found on Pinterest:
The spots on the back are leopard print, it’s hard to tell in the picture.
Last Monday and Tuesday were my ED rotation days. It was interesting thats for sure. There was a person come in with a GI bleed, this person had fallen and had diarrhea, and vomited. They had stool and vomit in their hair and all the way down to their feet! We had to clean them before treatment could even be started. It was insane. When a person has an upper GI bleed their vomit looks like coffee grounds because of the blood. In my nursing school career, I have cleaned a lot of bottoms but I have never even imagined anything like this. I feel like I cannot even explain the severity of it. After that there was a miscarriage, and then I had to hold a baby still so he could get an IV. It was just a really tragic day for me LOL. The ED is really not my thing. One minute there will not be a single patient and everyone is on Facebook or whatever and the next its packed and nurses are running around like chickens with their heads cut off. Yeah just not my thing. But tomorrow I will be in labor and delivery and I am really really excited about that!
I love love love Scentsy products! I was introduced to Scentsy last year right before Christmas and ended up getting it for myself and also Christmas presents. This was a great month to sign up in because almost everything is 10% off. It is also a great time to stock up on some of your favorite scents. Here is a video of the scents that are going to be discontinued this month:

For the last couple of hours the Spice Girls song Wannabe has been stuck in my head. So I thought I would share the video so it can be stuck in your head too! I’m so nice…
Today I am just hanging out at home cleaning and later I have school work to do, yay! My life is so exciting.
But I have to get everything done today that I can, because tomorrow I have a CPR class and I need to go talk financial aid with the GI bill advisor at the college. All the military talk goes way over my head so that should be interesting. All of that should take pretty much all day but if I have time I need to go get a spine/back check done (also for school).
One more thing…I finally finished a project I started from Pinterest.
Here is the image/tutorial I pinned:
And here is my product!
If you wanna be my lover
You gotta get with my friends
Make it last forever
Friendship never ends
I have developed a serious addiction to pinterest. So for fitness Friday over at Life As I See It, I figured I would share what keeps me going. Working out doesn’t come easy for me. I didn’t work out until I met my husband. I was what they call “skinny fat”. I have found that keeping motivating images and quotes around help keep me reminded why I do exercise and work so hard to stay healthy. I also do this in other areas of my life, I have a motivational board to keep me motivated for my school.
All of these images can be found in my Fitness Inspiration board on Pinterest.
I don’t know if this is a new thing or just something I have never known about. I started seeing these on Pinterest. I must bake…
It will be my personal mission to make a pumpkin spice pull apart bread. I will post the recipe (when I figure it out). Does anyone know of a good recipe?
