Last weekend Scott and I packed up the car and headed to Montana for a surprise family reunion for my Grandma Robbins. It was so much fun! We were able to see all of my uncles and my aunt on my Dads side. Some of them I haven't seen in the last 5 years and so it was great to be able to all be together if only for a few days.
I haven't been to Montana in the last two or three years...the last time I was there we were putting the headstone on my Grandpa Wessel's grave. It was so good to be back and I just felt like I was home! I love the Bitteroot Valley!
We stayed with my mom and dad at my Grandma Wessel's house for the weekend. And man I've really missed my family! We all had so much fun. We took family pictures, went to the lake had several cookouts and just hung out and talked!
Now don't judge my poor photo quality! I forgot my camera in Washington {boo}So these were all taken on my phone...

My Grandma Wessel's house...the most magical place in the world. As a child her house and yard were a wonderland for me. I spent my summers here all growing up, from the time I was about 7 until I was 16

This is Quinn and Megan and yes this is how they look majority of the time hahah

Me waving at Scott and Seth and Michael. They had just come back from shooting

Making smores with Faith and my beautiful cousins

Shuga all partied out! She got chased and hauled around all weekend by my young cousins who just knew she loved them

My adorable cousin Madison and I...She was stuck to me like glue all weekend! She is hilarious! She is 6 now and I don't know where the years have gone! When I saw her I was like "Madison how old are you now?" Her reply "why I'm 6 years old" ME..."when on earth did you get to be 6?" Her "Well February 2nd of course" hahaha

These were some really cool chairs that Sonja and Bill had at there house...

Most of these pictures were takin at my aunt and uncles house...I have more pictures from the lake but they're on Scott's phone so I'll have to post them later!

SUMMER! {finally}

ahhh....I just finished my last final! I officially am graduated from BYU-Idaho {woot woot} I have received my associates :)This last week has been crazy busy! I feel like I've been running around like a chicken with my head cut off! I've had online finals {which consist mainly of busy work, essay questions and 100 question multiple choice exams} and on top of that I've been doing clinical rotations this week at a long term care facility for my CNA class. I have loved doing clinical. I've finally had a chance to do hands on care for real life people. I feel like I have grown so much in the last week and learned so much more then I did in the whole 8 weeks of my CNA class! I've always known that I've cared, I just never realized how much I cared!
I have now received my associates :) and while I really want my bachelors degree, a nurse I worked with this week reminded me that sometimes we have to take baby steps {thank you ashley} I don't know just yet what my future holds... I need to take my state test and get certified. Then I want to start working as a CNA. I'm starting an anatomy/physiology class the second week of August and then a second A&P class after that. I'll be done by Christmas and then I'm applying for an LPN program {Licensed Practical Nurse}From there I want to do a bridge program and receive my RN and after that I want to go to school and get my Bachelors of Science in Nursing. I know that for now it's kind of a long shot but it's what I really want to do!!

Thank you to all of my friends and family for their love and support! I couldn't have done it without all of you!!!

Christmas/Birthday list=totally unrealistic wants....

I know what you're all thinking and yes this is a picture of Shuga as a baby...the first picture that I ever saw and fell in love with...and no I don't want shuga for Christmas/birthday....I want another puppy just like shuga but I will name her I'll have my Shuga baby and my little Spice Girl!!

black silk sheets...expensive ones

Zebra Toms...yes please

An Ipad2 need I say more...It can shoot video, it's like an has games....I've really wanted one for a long time now!

I know that my birthday isn't for another three months and that Christmas isn't for another five months. And I know that this wish list is totally and completely ridiculous due to our small budget and large amount of school loans to repay and other large amounts of bills every month... but a girl can dream can't she?
