Out of touch

Don't try to reach me this week.
I'll be hanging out in the Bluegrass State.

Crazy week

 It's been one crazy week and it's only Thursday. Got to experience my first mammogram this morning. I can honestly say, putting my boob in a vise grip was not the highlight of the week.

Started the week in Cancun, with this view out of my bedroom window.

Partook of a few of these

Dressed up for  dinner at a beachfront Italian place

Walked along the beach

Snorkeled in this piece of paradise

On a perfectly perfect day

Floated down a lazy river

Braved the Mexican bus system to visit a downtown market

Napped in a hammock

Sipped some fresh strawberry margaritas

Laughed out loud at Wendy's Coco Loco coconut head drink

Had a great time with my girlfriends

Watched a Mexican show

Hung out in the club zone

And said goodbye to this view....
To come home and see this adorable face!

Mia Renee Ying will be coming home from China soon!

Leaving.... on a jet plane

Crazy week

This week has been full of ups and downs.....
  • Failed my Advanced Postpartum/Newborn Final - apparently, I really need to use a mouse. The touch pad on my lap top is very sensitive and after reviewing the test with my instructor, I discovered there were several answers that were totally not what I know I clicked. Darnit.
  • Passed my Advanced Postpartum/Newborn class. So there, stupid final.
  • And got an A on the dreaded paper. Woot, woot!
  • Heading to Clinical Bound in 12 days (basically an intense training week to get ready for clinicals).
  • Totally not prepared. Lots and lots of reading to do.
  • Missing my grandma, hard.
  • But, got to spend time with family from out of town. 
  • Started Medifast a few weeks ago to jumpstart my weight loss before going to Cancun.
  • Lost 5 pounds! Finally back down to 165!
  • Uh, but started my Mexican fiesta a little earlier by going out with the girls for the Latin America menu at Melting Pot, then to Cazadore's with the fam the very next night. Yum, yum, yummy pina coladas!
  • Not stepping back on the scale for a week. 
  • Going to Cancun in the morning!!!
  • And finally going to see little Miss Mia's face within the next week!
