GETTIN READY...


This last week my dad took us girls up to practice our shooting. Karli and Courtney already took Hunters Safety a couple of years ago, so now it's Me and Maddie's turn!! (Wahoo!!) My dad is taking us on a few hunting trips this year and we are all very excited. I gotta be honest and admit i was never really into the hunting thing until i started dating Brent. Brent loves hunting more than anything (that and basketball) We had some fun Quick hunting trips (mostly in his backyard) and i don't know i guess i just kinda realized shooting a gun is kinda fun! And ok i admit, i want him to be proud of me :) But anyways... Me and Maddie are done with the class and we test tomorrow... Wish me GOOD LUCK!!

My Connecticut/New York Experience


I don't even know where to begin. My heart is very full when i think of all the friendships made and life lessons i have learned all because of my experience as a nanny. I know that i have come home a different person. I owe a special thanks to the Young family for showing me much love, patients and kindness. I know i have said it before but i lucked out big time, I struck the jackpot with my nanny family. I miss them all so much and will always treasure my summer with them. This summer i learned a different kind of love and that was how to love children. I now have a more clear understanding on how much work they really are :) but not only how much work but how much fun and joy they can bring into a life. Children teach a special kind of love, forgiveness and patients. how lucky i was to get a taste of motherhood and i truly look forward to being a mother. like i said i can't really put into words how i feel, but i am very very thankful to have had the opportunity as working as a nanny. It is something i will remember for the rest of my life.

HoMe Sweet HoMe...

Well I'm home!! Can you believe it? I can't ha :) It has been so good to be home. As you can see my cute little family came to pick me up (i had my own little fan club it was awesome) It was so good to see them! I have missed my sisters more than i can explain! Well so i have been home exactly a week from today, it's been a slow but fun week. I have enjoyed chating with my sisters, job hunting (ok so that hasn't been fun), lunch with my mom, visiting family and friends, Mom's cooking, oh and i can't forget the amazing Cafe Rio and Wingers run :) I'm now just trying to settle in and find a job and i guess just figure out what i want to do with my life. Ahh I have now figured out that this lovely stage I'm in right now is a hard one!! But it's good to be home and i will figure it all out!! But hey if anyone has any suggestions for me let me know...

SaN DiEgO!!

We had a GREAT vacation to San Diego! My last week with the Young's couldn't have ended more perfect, we had a ton of fun! I was very lucky to have karli fly and meet me there for a few days. Karli loved the kids so much!! I was so glad she got to meet them. It was a pretty relaxing vacation (which i love) lots of sun, shopping and time at the beach (oh and i better add me and karli are pretty dang good at boogie boarding). Thank you so much David and Rebecca for letting me and karli come on vacation with you and the family!!
