Here are a few video's from this past weekend. Matt, Tillman and I made a trip to Louisville to visit my sister. They have a really sweet dog that loves Tillman

curls of blonde and eyes of blue

Tillman is almost 11 months.
Can you believe it?
Planning his first birthday.
It will be dinosaur themed.
I'm so excited.
And a little sad.
I have a big boy.
Where did these curls come from??

catching up

So, the past few weeks have sort of flown by for me and I haven't been doing a great job at keeping up with my blog. My apologies. I have, however, kept up with picture taking.

2 weekends ago, some good friends of ours got married in Oakland, Ky. Congrats Heather and Kyle. They had a lovely ceremony followed by a beautiful reception at the Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Ky. We had a great time.

The Monday after the 2 weekends ago, lol, a good friend of mine Stacy and her kiddos came to Nashville for a very sweaty day at the zoo. Although it was a little too hot for our taste, we enjoyed each others company. I look forward to spending time with them again soon!!

I hope you enjoy the evidence of these fond memories, as well as how much Tilly has grown.

time for a celebration!

We figured it was a great night to celebrate, you know, since I passed a really FREAKING big test for me! Ha. Well, it was a good excuse for a an awesome, fantastic, family night on the town! First stop: Battered & Fried Boston Seafood House (East Nashville-5 points). Second stop: Mikes Ice Cream (East Nashville-Riverside Village). Such a good time we had:). Here are some of the memories I captured.

NCLEX update

I PASSED!!! Praise the Lord!! Oh my goodness. So I woke up this morning and immediately went to check the website to see if my results were available. They weren't. So I continued to check every 30 minutes and around 8:30 am they were up. I felt so sick. Then I clicked on the page, and there it was! PASS in big letters at the bottom of the screen. So happy. I feel like I can finally breathe. When I graduated from nursing school, sure that was a big relief, but it still wasn't complete. It didn't count for anything without a license. So now, 2 months after graduation I am FINALLY finished. Now, lets get a job!

reading list

Over the past year I have collected quite a few books.
Since I have been a student my head has been stuck in text books, rather than in
books that I would actually ENJOY reading.
Sure academic reading can make your brain smarter, but there is
just something about having freedom to read what you
want to!

Here is a list of books to read over the next year that I am looking forward to!

Silly, Sweet Potato, Booger Face Tilly


Oh me oh my. pumpkin pie.

What a morning I had. Today I took the NCLEX which is my national certification licensing examination to be a Registered Nurse, RN. In other words, this is the biggest academic test of my life to date. The test is a computerized, adaptive test with a minimum of 75 questions and a maximum of 265 questions.

My test began at 8:00 am. This was a proctored exam under very high security being both audio and video recorded. I was finger printed as well as palm printed probably 10 times before I left the facility! Crazy. I ain't no cheater.

Surprisingly my exam cut off at 75 questions. I expected to get quite a few more than that. But, supposedly it can be a good thing if you get cut off at the minimum. The exam is designed to statistically determine the likelihood of you passing or failing after taking 75 questions. Also, 15 of those 75 questions were pilot questions that will not count in my average. So, really I was only graded on 60 of those questions. Could they really have passed me after only 60 questions?? Oh, I pray to God that I did!

So this scary test is over. Finally. And hopefully I will not have to take it a second time. I will get my results on Thursday morning at 9:30. An update will follow.

Until them I am being tortured by the annoying unknown!

I finally got a card reader! SO, SO, SO happy! Here a few older pics of Tillman and some from this morning while he was eating waffles.

just hanging out, waiting for food I'm sure

Learning to crawl

Helping Mommy shred old mail and bills. He had so much fun with this. I'm sure you can tell.

sleepy head. Hmm. Looks like sweet potatoes on his face.

Sweet, sleepy boy. Taking his bottle and watching Disney probably.

These are really old. I think he is about 3 or 4 months old here. Sometimes I forget how bad his little rash around his mouth was until I look back at these old pictures.

Hope you have a wacky and wonderful Wednesday!
