Snow and Ice

Oklahoma is notorious for ice storms. It's terrible. Well, actually it's not too bad. I like staying in and reading, crafting, cooking and just enjoying my husband's company. We have a lot of fun together. We are constantly laughing. He is my best friend. I also love making things for people so Valentine's day is soo exciting for me. I already have a few things I need to mail to far-away friends.

The other day I met with this lady who is an RD (Registered Dietitian). She was amazing! She was so helpful and I think I'm really going to like working with her in the future. I have a bunch of volunteer hours I have to get in for my Dietetics degree program and it seems like it's going to be a breeze now! I'm very excited. Bad news is that at the moment there is nowhere around the Tulsa area for me to get an internship sooo we may be having to move if nothing comes up within the next couple of years I'm not too happy about that. So let's hope and pray that the collaboration between OU and TU takes off and they get their new med school built before the deadline they have already set for 2014! That would be amazing and I'm sure I could get an internship there. Anyway, I think I'm looking into diabetic nutrition. It seems very interesting and fulfilling. I'm still exploring options though. I am just excited to be done with school and get into the field!

Well, there's my update!

Ikea is the best place. I love going and walking around in there for hours! Their furniture is so simple and amazing. The husband and I are in desperate need of some bedroom furniture so I've been scoping out some stuff so we can hopefully get some soon!

This would be great to put in our room to put our tv on, obviously! HAHA!

I can't quite decide if I like this color or not yet. I can't decide if it's too dark or not. I think it would be pretty though. A little more maintenance but hey, what else do I do?

This obviously wouldn't go in our bedroom but I love this couch!

Well, that's it for now, let's hope we can stop buying clothes and cd's long enough to get some furniture!!!

I love Martha Stewart! I love the simplicity and beautiful colors of her products. I am currently in the process of converting everything in my kitchen to the blue that she uses on everything. Here are just a few products I would love to have:

Pretty Ladies

The other day my roommate, Brittany, and I watched 500 Days of Summer. It was a pretty good movie. I absolutely loved Zooey Deschanel! I'd seen her in The Happening but I didn't realize who she was. She is so beautiful! Also, we've recently watched Public Enemies with Marion Cottilard. She is also in Nine. She is a classic beauty. I loved her in both of them. She is a french actress and hasn't done many American films. I am dying to watch some of her french stuff. Another one of my favorite actresses is Marcia Cross. I absolutely love Desperate Housewives. She is my favorite character along with Gabby (Eva Longoria Parker).
