Tuesday, November 16

literally. one of the best days of my life :)

Hey party people :)

I just can't control my excitement right now, and I have to share with you all the reasons for the huge smile on my face right now!

I will go through the day in a list format, just to count my blessings tangibly :)

1. I was finally well enough to go back to work last night!
2. Work was fun, I worked with lots of my friends, which allowed times for lots of laughs amidst the craziness of baby cries and poops {love you Andrea & KP}. 
3. Came home to my husband and pups and slept for a solid 5 hours... mmmmm :)
4. Woke up and met my love Andrew at the gym. My first workout since my crazy sickness set in last Monday. And it felt GREAT! I coughed a lung out during the hour-long speedwalk, but I felt fab after. 
5. After the gym, I was driving home {when November decided to be nasty and throw a freak rain/hail/snow/windstorm for 30 minutes...but, whatever} when I got a call from an unrecognized number...I answered...and it was the Assistant Program Director for the PA Program in Denver that I have been dying to get in to... Christina said, "I just wanted to say, Congratulations!" At which point I started SCREAMING my brains out. I told her, "YOU JUST MADE MY LIFE!" and then said, "Welp, there goes all the composure I showed you last Monday! She just laughed at me :) I am so so so freaking happy. This is a life-changing thing to find out, because it finally gives me the direction I have needed! I am going to be a Physician Assistant! I am so proud, and so happy :) And then, upon telling everyone on the good ole' fb, I got such a tremendous outpoor of supportive and loving words from my friends and family. I don't always feel like I have a lot of close friends, but today I felt loved --- for SURE! :)
6. Took a trip to the Discount Liquor store near us, and bought 9 bottles of wine {before I found out about PA School} to stock up for the holidays! Wine for Thanksgiving, wine for the EPIC wine party in December, and so on :)  9 fabulous random bottles of red delicious liquid goodness.
7. After my husband got home and we danced around with happiness, I hopped in the shower to get ready for an impromptu date to PF Chang's. {I adore impromptu dates}
8. We had a $20 gift card to PF Chang's so we ate a FABULOUS 4-course dinner and spent $40 {including wine and tip!} and really enjoyed each other's company. We don't usually go out to eat, and I enjoyed every minute of it!
9. My husband even played the role of the romantic and opened my car door for me and everything, haha :) Cheesy and I liked it. 
10. My fortune in my fortune cookie said, "You will receive a good surprise soon!" I already found out about PA School...so I wonder what could be in store?
11. As we walked out of PF Chang's, hand-in-hand, I just felt magical. There were trees lit up with gorgeous white Christmas lights, Coldplay was playing overhead, and life was just GOOD. No, great :)
12. Came home to enjoy a glass of Cupcake Petite Sirah with my hubby and watch tonight's episode of Glee with my husband on the couch and with my sister of FB Chat. My favorite thing about watching Glee is the chat session I have with my sister during it :) 
13. Um - the Glee episode was SO DAMN GOOD! I love Gwenyth Paltrow...and apparently her voice is so good! I cannot WAIT to get this season's CD so I can listen to the Singin' In The Rain/Umbrella mash-up! INCREDIBLE! Can I get an amen???
14. Now we're watching Biggest Loser, and I'm hoping that someone I don't like goes home...we shall see! 

I just had to share the many blessings in my life with you :)
I hope you are all doing well. 

Love to you :)


  1. Congratulations! PAs make killer money. Very exciting!

  2. Congratulations!! Sounds like a great day :)

  3. Congratulations again, my dear!!! I am so happy for you and so very proud of all of your hard work. Discussing wine made me want some, although I don't think that's appropriate at work, but I may just go home tonight and open up my bottle of Cupcake Petit Syrah that I have. haha... Yay for dreams coming true!!!

  4. I'll say it again - I'm so proud of you.

    This is probably weird...but I also wanted to tell you what a joy it is to have you back in my life. Yes, random...I know. But you were always someone I looked up to in highschool and I feel so blessed to have you as a friend. You're always SO positive and SO VERY supportive. You deserve ALL of the wonderful things you have and I just wanted to make sure you know that.

    Thanks for a wonderfully FAB lady date. Love you.


  5. Congrats, this is so exciting! It must be wonderful knowing all your hard work is paying off!!


How sweet of you to comment :) I love you for it!
