Life Lately

We've been having some fun around here lately.  Don't believe me?  Here's proof ...

Josh passed his state board exam and is now an official CRNA (Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist).  I'm so proud of him and so glad this chapter of our lives is past and we can look forward to a future where we make money instead of crawling deeper and deeper into the black hole that is student debt.  

It has been snowing here!  We get snow about once a year for a day or two.  Micah was pretty excited - he didn't remember the snow day we had last year.  He was out in the snow by 7:30 am and back in around 7:45.  In his words, "I don't like snow.  It's cold.  Can I watch a movie?"  

He was out a bit later to help Daddy shovel snow.  I didn't make it out that day.  I was busy packing for ... 

Our trip to FL.  We drove 15 hours to visit family in the Sunshine State.  We had a really great time and it was nice to catch up with some and meet others.  Good memories.

Then we drove a couple hours north and spent a day in Magic Kingdom.  The rain held out for us and we enjoyed a lovely day in the most magical place on earth.

We drove back home Monday night and made it home just before the snow hit hard.  Yes, it snowed again!  

The week has been filled with a lot of extraordinary out-of-the-ordinary events.  Maybe someday I'll get to finishing the small space series, but for now, it's snuggling under blankets and unpacking suitcases and finding that Captain America shield that has gone missing.  

How have you been?  Does it look like winter outside your window?  


  1. So happy for Josh!!! HE HAS A BEARD!!! Crazy town! The snow is even crazier though! haha It's been snowing pretty often here, but that's normal for Lexington. Mareto looooves the snow and Arsema spends the whole time eating it (as if she would do anything else) haha

    We miss you!!!! <3

    1. I know!!! And it's red! haha. It started out as "I don't want to shave until I take boards" and now he really likes it. I've been calling him "Beardilocks" and "Josh the Red" and just "Beardy". It's fun :)

      I laughed when you said Arsema was eating the snow haha! Bottomless-pit girl - that would be her superhero name :)

      Miss you guys and wish we could see you today. Hope life in Lexington is splendid <3

  2. Love the snow pics and congrats to Josh! Snow has been crazy here in Ohio and this polar vortex is freezing everything in site but I'm not going to complain if it means I get some snow days to stay home with my buddy! Looks like your little man enjoyed it :)

    1. Thank you! It was a long road, but he made it!

      I know what you mean about snow days - even though I don't leave the house for work I've been loving not having pressure to go out and do errands, etc. There's been a lot of sweatpants here lately. And maybe a few less showers than usual ... :)

  3. Sounds like a fun trip! And I giggled at Micah's comment about snow. :) He wouldn't be a big fan of living up here... it's been snowy and negative wind chills, yuck! We are doing a lot of snuggling too!
