Business or Busyness

For the next 6 weeks my weekends are booked. It is only January and February, hopefully this is not an indication of what the year is going to be like. Weekend activities include...Review day 8am to 5pm for the Registered Dental Assistant written exam. San Diego trip!!! Review day 8am to 5pm for the RDA practical exam. Practical exam in San Francisco. Jill and Mike come to town!!! San Jose Sharks game with friends!!! RDA Law and Ethics exam. RDA written examination. Yikes...hopefully by the middle of March I will only have to take exams during the week days.

Last Minute Trip

Next weekend Tadd and I are going to San Diego. Berlin, Tadd's niece is getting baptized and so we are going so that we can participate in this great experience. Pictures and posts to come in about 10 days.


School has officially begun! It started on Tuesday and I was almost crying by 8:00pm. I have an explanation however. Chemistry is not too bad. Microbiology was not tortuous either. Physiology was horrendous. The teacher began with introductions, and the usual. Then 30 minutes into class he basically has an anatomy review while touching on physiology topics. I could feel my face get bright red. I was so lost, I was freaking out. At 8:00pm we took a break and I headed straight for the teacher. I chatted with him for a few minutes before walking out the door. I dropped the class! However, I am taking anatomy and physiology in the summer so I am still on track to apply to my hygiene program for September. With that being said, I am in two science classes instead of three and I think this semester will go just fine!
Today in Microbiology we did our first lab which was Microscopy. Basically just learning how to work the microscope and view microbes. That is all the fascinating material I can share for now.

Brad and...

I might as well call my blog the Bachelor since I have totally been slacking on posting neat updates about Tadd and my life and instead have posted only bachelor opinions. With that being said, here is a very brief bachelor post from last Monday and then I will put some other posts up to share what Tadd and I have been up to lately. 1. Ashley and Brad date 1. Loved it. 2. Group dates are annoying but Shawntel did awesome! 3. Emily is adorable. Thank goodness she let go of the pink they can carry on. 4. Way to go Madison. Leave if you need to leave. The end. Until next week, again!

Fun posts to come...
Monthly craft.
School update.

Bachelor Week 2

Monday night, night two...and Tadd and I missed the first 10 minutes...oops! I forgot to start the recording, but anyway. We saw the end of the first date with Dentist Ashley H. Not bad...she is all hands, but I guess that is fine. Moving on to the group date...claws come out when girls are fighting for one man. Yikes! Michelle got a little cookoo on this show. We all know it is your birthday, but relax! Try not to make a stereotype for people named Michelle!!! I always get uncomfortable for the group dates and especially when they have to act, it is so awkward!

The next single date with Jackie was pretty sweet. I always wonder what the final couple is going to do with their lives after all these amazing dates. They have to go back to real life...anyway! I loved Jackie's dress and the jewelry...she looked really pretty. And it looks like they had a lot of fun. Maybe she should date more, but maybe not. Who knows. Keep her for now, she is super nice!

As for the rose ceremony...I don't think I have ever been this happy with who went home. He actually picked the right girls to leave. Both Melissa and Rachel deserved to go home. If they want they can fight in the limo on the way home. As for the others, it is always sad to see the nice ones go. Keltie's interview was especially sad. Hopefully she will get lots of dates from this show!!!

As for my bachelorettes to remain... I am still sticking with my guns from the beginning. Emily is still the cutest thing. I hope that she is able to talk to him a little more and hopefully he likes her even more after he hears what she has been through. Ashley and Shawntel are still going strong. They both did not get too much time with Brad as far as we could see. But hopefully in the next few weeks they will shine.

Until next week...

Bachelor Season 15

Brad Womack is officially back on the Bachelor, a changed man!!! I think it is kind of ridiculous that everyone is giving him such a hard time. He did not love those two girls, whether he was ready or not! Sucks for them that they had to get dumped on TV, but they are both engaged to be married now, so it obviously worked out for them. Now, lucky for Brad, he gets a second chance with more lovely women. So, last night, was episode one of this season. A few thoughts...There are some very pretty women on the show. A few that a little over the top in a variety of ways, and some that went home on the fist night for a reason. With that being said, my bachelorettes that I have chosen for the running are as follows...
1. Emily...seriously the cutest thing!! And the most touching story ever! Love her!!!
2. Ashley...She was cute, definitely. I liked her dress a lot too. And she got the first impression rose!

3. Shawntel...I think she seems really nice and interesting, or at least her job is!?

4. Michelle...Let's hope that not all Michelle's are crazy!!!

Time Flies

Merry Christmas, I mean Happy New Year. Yikes, these last few weeks have flown by!!! An update on what we have been up to...Monday the 20th my little sister came into town and that started of the holiday celebrations. We went shopping for last minute presents, went to the gym to earn some extra calories, and went snowboarding on the most beautiful day of the season so far if I may so myself.
Thursday night, my older sister Jill got in!!! And even more festivities occurred. On Friday, we all got up and got our sweat in, lounged around and then went to dinner with some old friends. It was a great time for our Christmas Eve. After dinner, we went and looked at lights, while the six of us were cramped in the car. After lights we went back to the house and opened one gift. (We also decided we are going to attempt the matching pajama tradition next year on Christmas Eve...should be fun!) After gifts, we lounged more and prepared for Christmas the next day, meaning we went to bed.
We arose around 8:30am and waited for everyone to get out of bed, and headed to the tree! We divided up our presents like we do every year and starting opening presents one at a time. Everyone got lots of lovely things. Tadd got lots of church videos, tennis toys and a kindle. Jill got clothes that she wanted as well as a little birthday surprise (Our matching sister rings, which she lost previously). Katie got work clothes as she will be starting an internship this spring. I got lots of fun clothes, workout stuff and craft gift cards. Mom and Dad got a few things that they were excited about too.
After opening presents, we made a yummy breakfast and organized the house. Then we went on a family walk. Once we returned from the walk, we prepped for Christmas dinner and we all pitched in!!! The following day, Tadd and I went to church for the last time in 2010...and the last time at 9:00am for a couple of years. We then headed to another old friend's house up in Auburn for visiting and dinner. We had a fun time catching up with them and eating more good food. Monday December 27, 2010 was Dad's Birthday!!! And December 30th was Jill's Birthday, so in order to celebrate we headed to our favorite spot, Benihana!

We had an awesome chef and as always, delicious food, and stinky clothes. Tuesday was a bummer because Jill had to leave : ( However, Dennis also came in which Katie was really excited about. Since Tuesday, we have been on and off work, exercising and lounging. On Friday, Tadd, Dad and Dennis played golf while the girls headed to get pedicures and do some errands at the mall. We also went to go see a few movies, both The Fighter and Black Swan.

The Fighter was a good movie and Christian Bale looked ridiculously skinny. Black Swan was another story. Natalie Portman played a really good role, however, it was a pretty sketchy movie. Anyway...that brings us to current day! Monday, back to work in the New Year.
