Exciting NEWS!

My career choices have really taken a sharp turn! From taking a HUGE leap of faith by leaving nursing school to now wedding and event planning as well as running my little etsy shop full of pretty things. :) I certainly love it though and I'm pretty excited about my new journey ahead. So far, I have been quite content where the Lord is leading me and I have learned so much more since taking myself away from the stress and all-nighters.
Today, I enrolled in the Wedding and Event Planning program with Sheffield School based out of NY. I am able to put in as much time as I can whenever possible which is great because being a wife, a mommy, keeping up with my shop, being a part of 2 bible studies, taking a floral design class and amongst every day life, it's hard to really fit more schooling into a "schedule." Instead, I am able to work on this whenever possible but I am hoping to get it done within a year. :)

Well, that's all the exciting news for now. As far as everything else goes,

*I still haven't had actual class time with my floral design class since the first day was pretty much cancelled and this past week, it snowed pretty good which lead to another cancelled class. Hopefully this week though, I will have a little flower creation to show you guys. :)

*Last night, I sent a little note to a friend that I've missed and I'm happy I did because things were said that were held in for too long. Although some friendships may be for a season, don't let feelings or words go unsaid because life is too short and regret creates a heavy heart.

*Today, my wonderful husband did some more cleaning and organizing around the house. I wish I had that "gift" but unless I'm in a weird cleaning mood, I'm not the best at it.

*Tonight, a great friend of mine came by for a visit. We watched our sons play together and yet still manage to hurt one another. What is up with little boys and their "rough-housing"? Can't they just read a book to each other and hug it out? Why the throwing of toys, climbing on tables and wrestling until one screams?

*Currently, the little man is rubbing his eyes. Tired much?

*In a few minutes, another friend of mine and her daughter are coming over for a little sleep over. I predict glasses of Dr. Pepper will be enjoyed, nails will be painted (or attempt to be), and the movie Julie & Julia will be watched.

What are your plans this Friday night?

  2. You're going to love floral design class. I went though Floral Design Institute's program back in 2011 and it was so much fun. I love designing flowers and events too. Weddings & baby showers are my fav. :)

    Stopping by from the GFC Link up. Now following you.

  5. Wow that is really courageous. Switching from nursing to a completely different field. I love that you're doing what you love though.
