Summer session is flying by! I really need to get going on my research. The proposal and presentation is due in a couple of weeks.

We drove lots this past weekend and plan to stay here for this coming up weekend. Maggie is happy to be back at home, too!

Lance has been working late this week. It figures that the week I am home from school early, Lance has to work late. oh well, I guess that's how it goes sometimes.

Pretty random post today. I just figured I needed to update the blog.

San Antonio pictures

Pictures of our amazing trip to San Antonio! First stop= Buc-ee's. This gas station and more has the cleanest bathrooms you have ever seen! They even have alcohol gel as you exit the stall, before you get to the sink to wash your hands!

We made it to the beautiful hill country of Texas!

Lance looks REALLY relaxed!

Being goofy

After our amazing dinner at sunset. I wish I got pictures at the dinner.

Chilling on our 'balcony' drinking champagne and eating chocolate covered strawberries.

Enjoying our vacation!

This is on our hike Saturday morning.

Smile Lance.

We had to put the camera in a tree and put on the timer. Lance couldn't run fast enough!!!

He made it this time. I wish someone was there to take our picture because it was beautiful!

We then went to the riverwalk and walked past the Alamo.

Sunset Saturday night.

In love.

Best breakfast in the world! We didn't want to go home!

We can't wait to plan another weekend trip. I wouldn't mind going back to San Antonio!
In other news, I had my skills exam today. I now can put a catheter in you keeping sterility, need an NG tube? I'll put it in. How about a TB test, tetanus shot, or an insulin injection? I got ya covered. We also had to clean wounds. Can you believe on the very fist day of PA school we were sticking each other in the arm trying to draw blood???? That was a very memorable experience!
Wedding in Dallas this weekend, then staying the night in Longview.
Until then,

This past weekend Lance and I headed out to San Antonio to celebrate being married for one year. We arrived to champagne and chocolate covered strawberries! Friday night we ate dinner overlooking the sunset of the hill country. It was beautiful! Lance ate antelope and I had buffalo. We discussed what we thought we did well for our first year in marriage and what we hoped to change. Before we knew it we had been to dinner for 2 1/2 hours. Lance got cherry chocolate bread pudding and I got creme brule for dessert. It was heavenly.
Saturday morning we hiked along the hill country and hung out by the pool the rest of the day. We got dressed and went to the Riverwalk to eat dinner.
This morning we slept in and then headed back to Houston. We had a great time in San Antonio and I feel blessed that Lance planned the trip to show his love for me. If the first year of being married is supposed to be the hardest, I think we are in for a wonderful lifetime with each other. We had a GREAT first year of marriage.

I plan to add pictures when I get the chance. I have a crazy week ahead of me. Tomorrow I take the PACKRAT which is the practice board exam. Tuesday I have ACLS class all day and on Thursday wish me luck because I have my OSCE. This is like a real life pop quiz with a simulated patient. I have to pass it in order to go on to clinicals.

On our trip we were approached by a couple and they asked us if we were honeymooning. When we said we were celebrating our first anniversary, they said "Keep it up!" This leaves me wondering, When are we not newlyweds anymore? Is the first anniversary the end to being newlyweds, or maybe when you have kids. Let me know what you think!

College Station

Above is a picture of the quilt Lance got when he graduated. He's pretty much obsessed with A&M and A&M memorabilia.

We had a great time in College Station this weekend. We got to hang out with my sister and her boyfriend. Eat lunch with some great friends, and I attended a bridal shower for one of my friends. I can't believe that I haven't seen these people in a year! Since my WEDDING! I am kind of sad that PA school did that to me. I hope the worse is over and I can keep better track of everyone.

Lance is currently in Louisiana for a few days so that leaves me lots of time to study for my final on Friday! We are excited to be heading to San Antonio this coming up weekend to celebrate the first year of our marriage!
