A little piece of Crate and Barrel

On Valentine's week-end Jarod and I headed to Indy for a little road trip so we could pick up a shelf I had ordered. I usually don't order bigger items unless I see them in person but the moment I seen this I knew it would fit perfect. I had been looking for a while and once I found this shelf on Crate and Barrel's website I knew it was just what I was looking for. But....I still put off buying it for a while and then FINALLY broke down! So glad I did b/c I love it!!! I have never been to the Crate and Barrel store but I have to say that is now one of my new favorite stores:) Has anyone else been there?! After we looked around a few stores we went out to eat at PF Chang's. I have heard of this place before but this was our first time eating there. The food was good but I don't know if we would eat there again. Just wasn't the kind of food we usually like to eat. Still good though....and the lettuce wraps were yummy!! On Valentine's day we didn't do much just relaxed at home together and watched a movie that night.

The leaning shelf- to show off our collection of different bottles and future small TV. This is in our weight room and sometimes it gets boring with only the walls to look at. haha

Not very wide...what I was looking for

Had fun on the way to Indy

Got a little thirsty too

Last week I worked, cleaned, did a few other things and spent one day in E-ville with my parents. We made a stop at the doctor's, Applebee's, Sam's, American Eagle- to pick out a some tops for our trip:) and Krsipy Kreme! It has been forever since I have had a Krispy Kreme donut and as we were leaving Sam's you could smell all those dount's cooking up. I was like.....hmmmm.....can we make one more stop. haha.  

This week-end I worked and am glad to be off today. It was busyyy! We were full and as one patient would be transfered to another floor or discharged another would be admitted. I don't think I even sat for a total of 30 min. my 12 hour shift. I seriously need to get a pedmeter to see how far I walk. I was up and down, up and down the halls like the energizer bunny. haha. Then I had a little trouble sleeping thinking about this patient I had. Sometime when I have a patient that is really sick or worries me I do this. I can't help it. You are with that patient for the whole day and sometimes spend most of your shift with just that patient and then leave at shift change wondering....or may see them the next time at work and check up on them. Do any of you other nurse bloggers do this?! I know you do! The thought I have right now is kinda like a saying you have heard. It may be a crazy job sometimes, but it is my job I love. You can go through this crazy rush and sometimes wonder what am I doing. This is crazy. But then leave and end up saying I don't know what else I would be doing. haha. Sounds silly but true! 

Well....I am off the next couple days. Yeah!! On my week-end:)

Hope everyone has a good week!!!

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! I was doing a quick research just now to see how Valentine's Day got started. Well here is what I found. Thought it was kinda interesting!

There are varying opinions as to the origin of Valentine's Day. Some experts state that it originated from St. Valentine, a Roman who was martyred for refusing to give up Christianity. He died on February 14, 269 A.D., the same day that had been devoted to love lotteries. Legend also says that St. Valentine left a farewell note for the jailer's daughter, who had become his friend, and signed it "From Your Valentine".

Also some Valentine traditions.

In Wales wooden love spoons were carved and given as gifts on February 14th. Hearts, keys and keyholes were favourite decorations on the spoons. The decoration meant, "You unlock my heart!"

A love seat is a wide chair. It was first made to seat one woman and her wide dress. Later, the love seat or courting seat had two sections, often in an S-shape. In this way, a couple could sit together -- but not too closely!

In the Middle Ages, young men and women drew names from a bowl to see who their valentines would be. They would wear these names on their sleeves for one week. To wear your heart on your sleeve now means that it is easy for other people to know how you are feeling.

Enjoy today with the one(s) you love!

We can relax on the beach

Eat lots of food. Maybe a little too much. haha

The biggest hint. We will be traveling on this big sucker!

After the last picture you probably guessed it. We are going on a Disney cruise in March!!!! We are getting soooo excited! We went on a cruise last year (Carnival) and didn't know if we would go on one this year, BUT we have heard lots of good things about the Disney cruise. So here we are waiting for the day that our one week vacation will arrive. They go way too fast but those memories last a lifetime:) 

 Too many places and not enough time....and money;) haha
