I love being a nurse, and I'm glad I have a job where I can help people and make a difference. I would be lying if I didn't mention the paychecks are also a nice perk. The pictures in the blue scrubs were taken in our old apartment, while I was in nursing school. I hated those blue scrubs so much, and wanted to burn them when I graduated! I had to wear them to every class and to every clinical, but I've kept them to remind me of my hard work. Obviously the pictures of me in the white graduation gown and cap are from when I graduated. All the pictures turned out goofy....can you believe these were the best I could find? The pic in the green scrubs is from when I get home from working at the hospital. I have to wear the green surgical scrubs whenever I work there.... they aren't the most glamourous, but at least I don't have to decide on what scrubs to wear like I do when I work at the care center and can wear my cute scrubs. I will have to get Preston to take a picture of me in my whole operating room gettup sometime. I look so good in full uniform!

So, I made this slide show of our wedding pictures. These are just a few pictures I scanned from our wedding art book onto our computer. It didn't turn out as nice as I had hoped since they were scanned, and the pages in our art book are a lot bigger than our scanner face. Thats why they look kind of blurry, and why some of the heads are cut off, oh well!! It was a lovely wedding, best day of my life! I can't believe we've been married 2 years already, time flies when you're having fun! I love you Preston! =)
(If for some reason the slide show isn't playing, just click on the tiny play button up in the very right hand corner of the little screen, that should do it.)

Spring is in the Air

I'm so excited for winter to be over and spring to be here! I'm sick of the snow and am ready for some warm weather! Watch, it will probably snow again. I like the winter because we love to ski, but you can only take the cold for so long. We're excited for the summer, and have a couple vacations planned! Our Seattle trip in June, Jackson hole in July, and the cabin in August! I'm excited for intramural tennis to start too. Preston won't be taking any classes this summer, so he'll just be working full-time, and studying to take the LSAT in June! I will be working full-time with nursing too! We're excited for boating this summer so we can keep up on our wake boarding skills, and enjoy some time in the sun! I'm so glad Preston's parents have a boat! My birthday is coming up in one week , but Preston has already given me one of my presents to the Jimmy Eat World and Paramore concert! I'm excited! I love those bands, and hopefully I won't get lost from Preston like I did at the Fray concert!

This one picture only has some of preston's arm and his hand in it... We were trying to fit both of us in, but it didn't end up working out like we wanted it to, so we thought it was funny. I wish I could figure out how to use our camera to get the dates off the photos, but I haven't been able to yet. I will have to keep playing around with it. Am I electronically stupid
or what? Hopefully my talents just lie elsewhere.....
Someday we will post pictures of our kids. We always see people's blogs with pics of their kids and babies and think its so cute, so someday, maybe in a few years. Nursing school really scared me out of having kids anytime soon, since I learned way too much about labor and delivery! For now, I am just having fun being married and being a nurse! But someday, we'll have cute kids I'm sure, and post their pics all over our blog, like everyone seems to be doing these days...

Me and Preston eating dinner at the Roof Restaurant around Christmas time. This is one of my favorite places to eat, besides Tucanos, but we only eat here at Christmas time. Its a Nate family tradition, they've been doing it for years, every year during December, The food was so delicious, and we got really full! Its buffet-style goodness, so its easy to eat a lot! I always eat wayyyy to much! But it was a lot of fun, and we had a great view of the Salt Lake temple and all the temple square Christmas lights....quite an amazing sight! We even saw two of the apostles eating there, which I thought was pretty neat. Can't wait to go again next year!!!
