Location: St. Louis

I am madly in love with a guy named Justin...who happens to be my husband! I currently work as a nurse, but I want to do so many things in this life! I gave my life to Jesus a long time ago, and I am renewed daily knowing that my life is in His hands. My desire is to grow deeper daily in a relationship with a relentless God.

Stress = NO FUN!

( I stole this from Jenn...from Kim and Tony's wedding)

Sometimes school just gets plain overwhelming. Becky and I have discussed often times how we feel like nursing tests are completely different than any other test. Now, I'm not downgrading any other major, but does everyone else really study for 8 + hours for a test?? Geesh, I'm just ready for October 19th. That's when this 8 weeks will be over, and I can focus and get refreshed! I'm still working pretty much every weekend, and it's really getting to me. I just want to enjoy my senior year...and i don't know...go home? I miss my family, I want to see my nieces and I want to watch Teaghan play soccer.

On a happier note (sorry, miss negative came out of her box) I made the praise team at Metro! I'm sooooo thrilled! I can't wait to start! I really needed some musical encouragement. The last couple of years have made me want to quit singing. I just felt like I kept getting shot down at every attempt. But I'm just singing now because I love praising God, and I guess that's how he wants to use my voice right now. That's fine with me :)

Wedding plans: working on music choices and guest list, so we can get this whole thing nailed down! Found the bridesmaid dresses, so as soon as I get time to go to Springfield, I'm gonna get those ordered and ready to go! So, there are definitely 5 weddings from April to August as of right now, including mine, of my close friends. This is CRAZY!
