Randoms from Denver

I've apparently lost my blogging mojo again. Starting a new job and having to learn ALOT of new stuff that I haven't heard or even thought about since nursing school is hard. So, here you're getting a bunch of randoms from me about what's been going on in the Ryan house lately.

~First, I just want to say thank you to everyone who's left comments on my blog recently. Like I said up there, I just can't keep up lately and I promise I've read them all and they are ALL appreciated. Especially on the weight loss post.

~Speaking of weight loss, I've consistently been working out and eating healthy. I've been tracking on My Fitness Pal (savs1027) and lost 3 lbs last week. I've been able to go jog longer on the treadmill and it's alot easier! That's a win for me :)




~I'm in Denver this week for work. I got in around 5 yesterday and will be here till Friday night. Class doesn't start until 3 today so I've had time to sleep in, go downstairs and get the free hotel breakfast and now blog!




~Being in a hotel room alone is weird. I've flown by myself alot so that wasn't new to me yesterday but I've never stayed in a hotel alone. I had to branch out and walk in to downtown last night to find some dinner which was nice, but of course it would be better if John or a friend was here with me. I'm really hoping that I can meet people in the training today so I have people to eat lunch and dinner with the rest of the week!




~I really love my new job! My coworkers are awesome and I just feel like this is what I'm really going to love doing. Like I said before, I'm having to learn alot, but it's worth it. I've been getting to hold and snuggle newborn babies and educate new moms! I start seeing my own clients next week after I get back from training.


~I don't think I ever officially posted this on here, but I opened up my Etsy Shop and have had alot of orders lately! It's been a nice little extra spending money :) I even made 2 birthday party invites for my nephew and his cousin!



~We got our kitchen redone a few weeks ago! I'm going to do a full before and after post on it, but wanted to share a little sneak peek :)



~John ordered a new car! He's been wanting a Jeep Wrangler for a long time!! With his promotion recently, we finally decided it was time to treat him to a new car! He's been driving an '02 4Runner so it's definitely time for him to have a new car! We are going to sell my car (my 2 door accord) just because it's not practical for us anymore. I am going to keep his 4-Runner because I need alot of space for work and then I'll get a new car once that wears out. He had to order it because he wanted a 4 door soft top which they don't make very many of and he wanted a certain color so he ordered it and it should be ready in a few weeks!


~I'm so ready for our Gulf Shores vacation! I'm really excited that we have 2 other couples going with us this year too! I ordered these drink spikes for our trip and got them in the mail this week! Can't wait to use them in the sand! :)




And that's about it... all work, no play lately. Hopefully I can get back in the swing of blogging soon... 

Have a great week!

I live in Denver!! Let me know if you have down time and I'd love to go on a "blate" :)

I saw those drink holders at Swoozies the other day and only wish Denver had beaches. Maybe I can just put one in my son's sandbox while I watch him play- lol!
