Antipsychotics Please

Good thing Brett comes home in just three more days, becuase I might be starting to lose my mind (as evidenced in the photos below). I just finished some aprons I've been working on, and I thought I would take a few pics of them before I give them away. Needless to say, I got a little carried away with my self timer!
Please pretend you can not see my cluttered scrapbook room in the background.

After all these pics, I decided I needed to put the aprons through a test run. And I was craving chocolate.
So even if I am going crazy, at least I can entertain myself, right?!

65 Questions You've Never Been Asked

I got this in my email and thought it would make a fun blog post. Basically, it's a whole lot of NOTHING! So don't read on if you have ANYTHING better to do with your time.

1. First thing you wash in the shower? My hair. Probably because it is normally the dirtiest part of my body. I try not to wash my hair often (it's not good for it), so when I do, it definitely needs it. :)

2. What color is your favorite hoodie? I love hoodies! Actually, I love anything PJ's, so to pick just one would be horrible. Maybe the black, purple, and hot pink Hurley one, or the gray and brown Abercrombie one?

3. Would you kiss the last person you kissed again? Of course! Only one more week till he gets home!! My lips are starting to get lonely.

4. Do you plan outfits? Considering I wear scrubs almost everyday, there's not much to plan. But when I'm packing for a vacation and I do have to plan outfits, I usually have a mental breakdown. Ask Brett! I'm REALLY bad!!

5. How are you feeling RIGHT now? Tired! It's been a long day at work and I've been going to bed WAY to late. We're talking in the a.m. region!

6. What’s the closest thing to you that's red? The pen sitting on my computer keyboard.

7. Tell me about the last dream you remember having? OMG, my mom got sucked into a drain at the bottom of a pool and I couldn't pull her back out. I watched her face as she drowned. It was AWFUL! That image is burned into my mind, and I CAN'T get it out.

8. Did you meet anybody new today? New patients. Does that count?

9. What are you craving right now? My hubby! I miss his snuggles and smiling face.

10. Do you floss? Yes. My teeth and others'!

11. What comes to mind when I say cabbage? What?! Weird question. I guess my father-in-law and his corned beef and cabbage.

12. Are you emotional? Depends on what the subject is.

13. Have you ever counted to 1,000? Hehe, when I can't fall asleep I start counting backwards from 1000. It works every time! Thanks to my Uncle Larry for this trick.

14. Do you bite into your ice cream or just lick it? Are you kidding?? Neither. I DEVOUR it!

15. Do you like your hair? Considering I just got it done yesterday, I couldn't be happier with it! There is nothing better than a just-finished cut and color.

16. Do you like yourself? Um, I guess so?! That would be sad if I didn't.

17. Would you go out to eat with George W. Bush? Sure, why not?

18. What are you listening to right now? The radio playing thru the office, the phone ringing off the hook, and a dental drill buzzing away in the background.

19. Are your parents strict? Let's just say they were much more strict with me than they are with my younger bro and sis. I guess it's an oldest child thing.

20. Would you go sky diving? Already have. It was AWESOME!!

21. Do you like cottage cheese? I like ANY kind of cheese. :)

22. Have you ever met a celebrity? I saw Steven Spielberg in the LA airport. And I got caught talking smack about Russel M Nelson behind his back and then had to ride in an elevator with him. Long story!

23. Do you rent movies often? Redbox is a constant must. Love the free codes!

24. Is there anything sparkly in the room you're in? hygiene instruments are pretty sparkly and clean. Also I'm drinking a bottle of Sparkletts water. Does that count?!

25. How many countries have you visited? Mexico, Haiti, Jamaica, Bahamas, Grand Cayman. So, five!

26. Have you made a prank phone call? Most definitely. Probably too many to count. Is that bad?!

27. Ever been on a train? Yep, a few times. And I'll be taking a five hour trip on one in a few months from Upstate NY into Manhattan. Can't wait!

28. Brown or white eggs? White.

29. Do you have a cell-phone? I'd be lost without it.

30. Do you use Chap Stick? Yep, where would I be without my Burt's Bees? This is the ONLY thing bees are good for, btw. Otherwise, I wish all bees would DIE!!

31. Do you own a gun? Um, no. And I don't plan on getting one anytime soon.

32. Can you use chop sticks? Haha! I can barely handle a fork sometimes!

33. Who are you going to be with tonight? My softball team and my dogs. Game tonight, then home to an empty house to snuggle with my animals.

34. Are you too forgiving? Of Brett, most definitely. I can't stay mad at him for very long. It's just TOO hard!

35. Ever been in love? Madly, with the boy mentioned above.

36. What is your best friend(s) doing tomorrow? Something along the lines of removing ingrown toenails, suturing surgical wounds, and inspecting genital warts. Sounds fun, huh?

37. Ever have cream puffs? Not unless they're dipped in chocolate. YUM!

38. Last time you cried? During an AMAZING R.S. lesson at my in-laws ward a few weekends ago. But considering it's been 1 1/2 years since I've been to a R.S. lesson, (No, I'm not inactive; I'm in Sunbeams) probably any lesson that actually references scripture and talks about more than flowers or sharing would have seemed amazing to me.

39. What was the last question you asked? "Is my patient here yet?" If you can't tell, I'm doing this at work. Probably shouldn't be, but I've got a few minutes to spare.

40. Favorite time of the year? I think EVERYONE knows my answer to this question. There will be a permanent smile on my face for the next several months. Summer is here!!

41. Do you have any tattoos? Only when I get bored and draw on myself.

42. Are you sarcastic? Hmm...I guess sometimes. Mostly I don't like sarcasm though, because it's usually something mean, and I truly believe there is ALWAYS some truth in sarcasm.

43. Have you ever seen The Butterfly Effect? Yeah. Do I remember the story line? No, not really.

44. Ever walked into a wall? Haha! Only a few times a day! I have permanently stubbed toes and never-ending bruises. I've got to be the clumsiest person on earth!

45. Favorite color? Mustard yellow and hot pink!

46. Have you ever slapped someone? Anytime I try to punch or hit someone (for fun, I've never hit anyone out of anger), I usually end up getting hurt worse. Again, the clumsy thing!

47. Is your hair curly? If not styled properly it has a nasty frizzy wave. Trust me, it's not pretty.

48. What was the last CD you bought? No clue! I just download illegally. But shhh....don't tell!

49. Do looks matter? Not sure, but my little bro just got voted "Best Hair" for his graduating class, so I think for his sake, we better say at least a little. :)

50. Could you ever forgive a cheater? Depends on what they are cheating on.

51. Is your phone bill sky high? No, it's super cheap actually. Love Sprint!

52. Do you like your life right now? I couldn't be happier. Every day I wonder why I am so amazingly blessed. And I keep waiting for everything to just come crashing down at once.

53. Do you sleep with the TV on? Only when I fall asleep on Brett's lap because he is watching one of his dumb shows that I refuse to watch.

54. Can you handle the truth? As long as it's good news.

55. Do you have good vision? Let's just say I have to be within a foot of the eye chart to see the large E at the top.

56. Do you hate or dislike more than 3 people? Hate is a very strong word. I don't HATE anyone. But I definitely have some patients that I would prefer not to see. :)

57. How often do you talk on the phone? Lots. But I probably text just as much as I talk.

58. The last person you held hands with? My cute hubby, a week and a half ago while he was driving me back to the airport after my quick weekend trip to visit him in UT.

59. What are you wearing? Black and lt. pink scrub top with lt. pink scrub pants. Like I said earlier, I spend most of my days in scrubs.

60. What is your favorite animal? My cute little dogs definitely. If I had to pick ONE, Kenzie. But don't tell Tucker. He might get sad!

62. Can you hula hoop? Yeah, esp. when given the proper audience. :)

63. Do you have a job? Scraping plaque of other people's choppers.

64. What was the most recent thing you bought? The cutest gladiator sandals and dinner from Paradise Bakery.

65. Have you ever crawled through a window? Car windows, but not house windows. They're too large. Takes the fun out of it! :)

Baby Lovin'

I'm seriously loving all the baby lovin' I've been getting lately. Three weekends ago, I got to fly to Vegas to visit this little baby and her parents.

Two weekends ago, this little baby came to visit and stay with me for the weekend with his mom and older sister.

And then last weekend, I got to fly to Utah to visit this new baby and her family.
Thanks to everyone for having cute little babes I can snuggle and love...and then hand over when they start screaming or need their bums changed. :)
