My weekend really started on Wednesday last week. My husband went out of town Wednesday evening for his annual hunting trip. I met with my trainer and realized I can't squat after long runs.
That evening I had a hair appointment. 10 inches and a few glasses of wine later, I had a new outlook on life. It was really starting to be a bit much with all of the running I am doing to train for my marathon. I don't wash my hair everyday, even after running, because it's not good for my scalp. Having shorter hair really keeps it cleaner and off my sweaty back during runs. Here is a little before and after for you.
The next day I had the hair cut regret. I tried styling it because I didn't LOVE it straight. MY HAIR WOULDN'T HOLD ANY NEW STYLE. I was so frustrated. I went out and purchased three new hair tools in an effort to get my desired style. NOTHING. I didn't think to wash out the products from the initial salon style. Duh Lura. After I washed it out, my hair styled effortlessly. And yall, I'm in LOVE! I ended up returning the three styling tools and followed this tutorial using my existing curling iron. Kate is fantastic at explaining everything. Who knew the keep the ends out? Not me! Life changed!
Thursday I worked on a few projects in the garage and finished staining my stable for my nativity scene. I'm sharing how I made it in the next post.
Friday I napped a little longer than I wanted to but apparently I needed it. I also met with a friend to discuss my future in nursing. That was really helpful because I'd been contemplating another career change. We discussed pros and cons and everything kept coming back to nursing. I'd also considered becoming a physician's assistant but that career isn't recognized globally like nursing. IF we ever decide to move out of the country (Hubs is in the oil and gas industry so it's always a possibility) I'd hate to have to start over yet again. So nursing it is.
I trained the pups.
That night I watched WAY too many episodes of True Blood (I just started the series and I'm loving it) and went to bed around 4 am.
Saturday was graduation day for my classmates left in the nursing program. I actually wore makeup for the first time in forever. It was so nice to see all of my friends graduate after working their asses off for eleven months! Getting a BSN in eleven months is no joke and they did it! Here are a few photos. They all graduated with honors and with jobs! Congrats to everyone. I will see you tonight in your tacky sweaters and booze in hand.
Blessy graduated with her forth degree! This lady is one of the sweetest people I have ever met.
Congrats to this gorgeous lady! Love you!
One last Wolf Pack pic! Congrats guys!
And to my kindred spirit. Congrats! I am proud to call you my wifey! You are going to do amazing things! LOVE YOU!
On Sunday Hubs came home and brought the pups some presents.
Christmas came early for the pups. Each antler should give us 4-5 chew sticks. Have you prices antlers in the store. Yeah. These were free. No worries, these were found on the ground (deer shed antlers annually) for those worried about lives lost. I personally believe in hunting wild game if the animal is respected and utilized once killed.
Little giblet even took hers to bed with her.
Did you do anything fun this weekend?
