The Little Things 

   |studying my life away|

I finally have a life again.  I took my Masters of Public Health comprehensive exam last Friday. I couldn’t be happier to have finished. Well I’ll be happier when I found out I pass. Studying had taken over my life so I’m so happy to be able to breathe again. I have a whole plan for when I graduate in a month, including many home improvement projects, which I will be sure to blog about. One month and 2 bigs papers left. I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. I can do it! Have a great weekend!

I had a very relaxing two weeks off that I got to spend with my family.  It the such a nice time spent with friends and loved ones.  2014 was very good to me. It ended just the way it started with a kiss from my husband.  We started 2015 yesterday with plenty of relaxing, binge watching Luther, and a delicious steak dinner.  I plan on continuing relaxation theme this weekend with a couples massage with Andrew, a family dinner, and a football brunch with friends.  Have a great weekend!

Life has been busy. I plan on taking some time to breath this weekend and just put my feet up. In between relaxing I’ll be catching up on homework and do a house project or two and eating Tres Leche Cake leftovers.  Have a great weekend!

We have a jam packaged weekend ahead of us. Dinner with friends, a lobster boil, brunch with friends, a gala for my internship and probably a hike with my favorite pups. Now that I wrote it all out, that really is a lot! Enjoy the fall weather!

This week has been a busy one. I started my last year of graduate school in the Master’s of Public Health Program and started an internship in the field. Since life just got busy pretty quick I’ve been treating myself with a little pampering (as you can see below with my new mask and scrub). I plan on doing a little relaxing (and probably lots of cleaning) this weekend. I hope you all relax and enjoyable the three day weekend!
