A Quick Little Update.....

I thought it was time I give you all a little update on the happenings of my life the last 7 months.....
well, it was a longgggg COLD winter with more snow then we could ever wish for!! It's May 14th today, and the temp today is mid 30's. ugh.

My son's senior year of high school is quickly coming to an end. We are trying to finalize all the graduation party details, and doing a little baking for the big event. He has made the decision to stay in North Dakota to continue his education. He will be about 3 hours away from home, which will be great for him, bad for me!! ha!! The next couple weeks will be crazy at our house.....awards night, concerts, senior quilt night, baseball games, track meets, preparation......oh and also a full time job!! This too shall pass, and will be over before we know it.

Two weeks ago, I spent four fabulous days in the Riviera Maya. The following are pics from my short, but awesome trip!!

That's all I have for now......I'm on call this weekend, so will have to write more later. Hope you all have a great week, and the sun is shining in your neck of the woods!!
Please send me some sun!!

Happy Fall....Let It SNOW......random post!!

Well, well, well, I have made it back to blog land. I'm once again not making any excuses, just have not had much interest in blogging lately!! Pure honesty!!
This week has been a not so steller week!! We got our first snow storm/blizzard of the season. Had I been scheduled to work in the morning, as usual, I would not have made it in!! However, I was on call and made it with no problem, and better yet, NO TRAUMAS from the storm!! Not sure how we got so lucky.....??
Last week, I was home sick for 3 days, and the remainder of the week I took my son to the 2 largest Universities in North Dakota to meet with admissions and have a tour of the college. It was alot to take in, but I think we had our questions answered. Now to make a decision as to where to go......hmmmm, UND or NDSU?? Oh and I am still not feeling well, throat hurts most the time, and still coughing.
While touring colleges, I got to spend some time with my Great Nephew, Brooks. Wow, hes getting big and is such a good little boy!! My sister is his full time daycare, so she gets to see him daily, it's good to know he's in good hands.
This past week we had to say goodbye to one of my favorite physicians.....Dr Fischbach passed away unexpectedly on October 22. It was not a good day, and has not been a good week at work for anyone. We all knew he wasn't in the best of health, but never did think he would leave least without a heads up!! I was out of town, and was crushed!! He just recently had learned how to do robotic surgery, which was so nice for him, as he was able to sit at the surgeons console and do his work, rather then the long hours on his feet. (yes, he was not very healthy!!) He was so proud of his accomplishments, and how well his patients did after surgery. However, not as proud as we were of him. He was simply amazing and is missed so much already. Below is a picture of my friends baby and Fisch, he delivered her on October 6th, 2010. He also delivered my son, however, I never did get a picture with him, sadly!!

That's all I have for now.....hope you all have a wonderful weekend!! I'm going to leave you with one of Alex's senior pictures..........

Happy Birthday Brooks Taylor!!

My Great Nephew was brought into this world at 847pm on July 3rd, 2010!!!
Brooks Taylor weighed 8lbs 11oz, and was my nieces 1st baby. Both Mom and Brooks are doing well. Tonight is his first night at home, so we'll see how that goes........

Here he is......

Mom Kasey, Dad Taylor and Brooks

My Nephew Tyler holding little Brooks......

His 1st picture......

Along with all of the baby excitement, we also had a big celebration in my town for the 4th of July!! I had a party that started at my house around 4pm on the 3rd, that was followed by a street dance 1/2 a block from my home. I had many friends here for the fun.......and it was a ton of fun and they cannot wait til next year!!! We also had a 5k run/walk that morning, 6 of my coworkers took part in that.....was awesome that they supported such an awesome event. I'm hoping to participate in it next year...........I was at the registration table this year, ugh.

Here's a few pics from the weekend......
friend D'Ann and son Gunner (she cuts my hair)
Velva High School Football & Baseball Team
State Champions

Little Art was decked out in his 4th of July gear......he loved the parade, fire trucks and of course the candy that was thrown out into the street!! ha!!

That's all I have.......hope you all had a GREAT holiday weekend, back to work tomorrow, ugh!! This weekend, we plan on a trip to meet my Great Nephew Brooks and also watch my nephew Tyler play in the Shrine Football game. Our weekends have been crazy, and doesn't look like its going to slow down anytime soon!!!
Have a great week!!

Finally a Post....mostly pictures!!

Sorry for the lack of/or absolutely NO Updates!! I guess Facebook has taken over, and blogger has been put on the back burner. I've been wanting to show you all some of my pucs from the past 6 months, so her you go......enjoy!!

This is where I spent my 40th Birthday.....way back in December!! I am so ready to go back!! Just a little taste of heaven for you all...........oh my!!

We stayed at the Iberostar Grand in the Riviera Maya, absolutely gorgeous, great staff, nice pools, beach was awesome, adults ONLY, I could go on and on, but I won't.

ME, on my birthday!!

Nice view from the pool it!!

This was my favorite view of all!! Eder!! He was just the cutest little thing, with a fun personality, would have loved to bring him home with me!! ha!!

OK, now back to the mainland.........

My Niece Brittany graduating in May......she's also my Godchild, so proud of her. She plans on attending college locally, not sure what for though. She lives 30 miles from us, so we get to see her often.

My Nephew Tyler (red) and son Alex. Tyler graduated in May, as well. He is also my Godchild and will be attending NDSU, and also playing football for them.

This helecopter has become my worst nightmare.......I was working in the garage last night when I heard a bunch of noise......walked outside, and this is what I saw, only it was still in the air, almost touching my house!! It landed 1/2 a block from my house, and was just on display for our local ambulance squad for about 15 minutes. It's the helecopter for the hospital that I work for, and is frequently bringing us traumas.......ugh.

My front door. This spring I decided to paint my front door. I went with a blue, I like it. I see pictures of what it looked like prior, and this is so much better.

Another little project.......I think it turned out quite nice.

Lastly, this is Alex in front of the Ralph Englestad Hockey Arena on the University of ND campus. Alex is thinking about college at UND, so we were driving around the college after my nephews graduation.

OK, this is about all I can handle/or have time for today. Please leave my a comment and let me know that you did not completely forget about me!! ha!! It's been crazy here, and the next few weeks will be even crazier!!
Take care, and hope you're enjoying the summer!!

I'm hoping to add some weight watchers ideas/recipes real soon!!
Have a great weekend, will try again tomorrow night!!
