We're baaaack

Well, I think we have finally made it through all the sickness! This time, it hit me pretty hard. I was sick for three weeks, and last week my ear drum ruptured....i know, it usually only happens to kids. After 2 rounds of antibiotics, I am finally beginning to feel like myself again. Avery had been coughing too, so I took her to the pedi last Monday, and she had bronchitis and two ear infections!...poor baby, she really didn't even act like she was sick. Brian, of course, is untouched.
So, this weekend, I hope to get caught up on some school and house work.....blah.
Oh, I forgot to blog about this, but 2 weeks ago, I opened up my mail to find a letter from UT. It looked pretty official, so at first I though oh, no, did I forget to pay something, but I soon opened it to find out that I had received a scholarship!!! Wahoooo! What an awesome, and unexpected blessing. It was from the William Randoulph Hearst Foundation for $2,000.00. Maybe all my craziness about grades was worth it! I should have taken a picture of the letter, but it was during all the sickness :( It will cover the rest of this semester's tuition and most of next semesters'.

I took these pictures last week. I just looove sleeping pictures. I wish I could sleep that good :)

Hope you and your family have survived flu season too!

On Thursday, Avery is participating in a Trike-a-thon at her school. All of the money raised goes to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. It is a fantastic cause, so check out her page, and donate if you can! Follow the link above this post.

Sick Chicks

This is what Avery and I have been up to this week. Thankfully, she just has had a runny nose and a small cough in the morning. However, I have been down for the count since Sunday night. I hope the end of this is near....

Happy Saturday!

Well, this week marked my first week back for the semester. Geez...I am already overwelmed. I just keep telling myself that it is always like this in the beginning, before I can get back into the swing of things. However, next week, I will get to finally start seeing patients. I am both excited and nervous. I will be driving out to good ole Huntsville to see them, but I guess that is better than driving to the med center?!
Enjoy your weekend, (even if it is cold and wet!)

Sassy Diva

Today I took Avery to Sweet and Sassy, I can't believe we hadn't been there yet! As soon as we walked in she said, "mom, this place is beautiful," she was very serious too. She really needed to have her hair trimmed anyways, the curls were getting a little too crazy.

I have never actually dried her hair with the blowdryer, but the lady asked Avery if she would like it dried straight, and of course Avery said yes.

She then got to walk to cat-walk and pose...hehe

When we were leaving, she said, "Next time, Mommy, we can get my nails done." Ha! That's my girl! I told her, maybe for her birthday. I looove having a little girl :)
