I was, um, yeah, well...

Time for my excuses for the know.....when its Friday and you look back and try to figure out exactly why you didn't complete everything on your to-do list.

I'll start with the Weekly Weigh In...

Problem: Stabbing Pains
Diagnosis: Severe Bladder Infection

So this would explain why I was running to the bathroom every hour over the weekend at work. And the stabbing pains were obviously bladder spasms(I could hardly stand up straight). DUH BRITTNEY, YOUR A FREAKING NURSE!! THIS IS WHY YOU'VE BEEN PEEING ON YOURSELF AT THE GYM!!

Needless to say, I was scares in the gym this week. I did go yesterday to attend a Zumba class and missed it. It was at 8:30 not 9:30 (I'll remember that on Monday). I did a little cardio, and attended the Ab Class as-well as the Buns & Thighs Class. I don't dare step on a scale this week. I was super lazy waiting on my Antibiotics to take over. Back full-force, with  a weigh in next week!!

30 Days of Truth...

I'm going to post the next 7 entries today! Promise. I was busy Monday finishing up Christmas shopping. Then the evil bladder infection made its full force appearance. Wednesday, I had to fill in for a school nurse. Thursday (yesterday?), I um....OH! I got a call first thing from Housing on Fort Riley. WE HAVE A HOUSE!! Last I heard (Tuesday), we were #197 on the list! How did this happen? I don't know and I don't care. We got actually, for the first time, got the house we wanted, in the neighborhood we wanted, and on the street we wanted!!! SA-WEET right?! Have you ever lived on post? What did you like/dislike the most?

General Blah-Blah-Blah Blogging..

Its coming, just wait...I'm getting ready to move AGAIN. Ah, there is a post topic right there, so I'll leave it alone. I proooomise there is more randomness coming soon!

So, if you talk to Santa, please tell him, I'm trying to do my best!

Have a Happy Friday and a Wonderful Weekend!

What is the best gift you have ever received or given? 
When I was a child, it was a trampoline. Santa put it together right in my backyard and left a big red bow on it.  My most recent Christmas gift was Kyson...born just 1 week before.

Do you celebrate holidays differently when your loved one is deployed/gone or do you keep tradition?
We always follow the same routine. Christmas morning at my moms in Oklahoma & Christmas afternoon and the next few days with my husbands side of the family in Arkansas. This year, however, may be different. Bruce is deployed and I have to work on Christmas(they gave me off until noon, but I wont get off until 11pm). I'm still not sure where and when everything is going to happen. I guess I should try to figure this one out...

If you celebrate Christmas, do you put an angel, star or something else on the top of your tree?
I put a big bow on top with matching ribbon flowing down the tree. I love it! My mom always put an angel on our tree, and now she puts a start(western style). The bow & ribbon is something I've started on my own in our family.

What are your three favorite websites?

On your man do you prefer… boxers, briefs or boxer briefs? Or commando? (yeah, I’m starting to get desperate for questions!)
Boxers or Boxer Breifs....mostly boxer breifs. :)

What do you see your life like in 10 years?
I hope that I am almost done with my education. I plan to have my NP or CRNA. I hope Bruce is exactly where he wants to be career wise with the Army. I'm sure we will be living wherever the Army needs us. It's not exactly easy to predict 10yrs in advance when your married to the Army. Oh, no...I just realized that Kade will be 15 1/2 yrs old...that means we will be teaching him how to drive and he will have a permit. Oh jeeze!

What do you like most about your job?
I love knowing that when I leave I have accomplished something every single day. It may only be that I was an ear that heard my patients worries, a shoulder to cry on, or the one that ran fast enough to catch them before they fell. I'm surprised how much I enjoy working as a nurse in a nursing home. One reason I chose nursing is because I love school/learning and I learn something new every single day that I am at work.

What are three things you do every day, no matter what day it is?
Just Three??
-Check My Facebook.
-Check To See If I Have Any New Followers.
-Hug My Babies.

What would you do with an extra five hours in your day today?
Sleep! I love to sleep! I'm a night owl, so I have to talk myself into going to bed early enough to get the sleep I know I want so dearly.

What is your favorite Christmas (or whichever holiday  you celebrate) cookie recipe (please share!)?
I wish I had the recipe for the soft gingerbread cookies my step-grandma makes. They are delicious...she puts a cream cheese frosting on them too. Yum!! I didn't come from a cookie family. Our Christmas cookies usually come from pre-made dough. =)

30 Days of Truth...In Pictures (day 16,17,18,&19)

Day 16: Someone or something you definitely could live without. 

Day 17: A book you’ve read that changed your views on something. 

 These are books I have not read, but would love to. Just the things I have seen from them, will make you step back and think again.

Day 18: Your views on gay marriage. 

Day 19: What do you think of religion? Or what do you think of politics?

Poor Man's Plastic Surgery (Weekly Weigh-In)

I have officially spent more time in the gym this week than any other week of my life. I've gone 3 DAYS IN A ROW!! I know, I know....your thinking "Yeah, right, not Brittney." But if you could see the way that I am walking, you would believe me. Not only am I EXTREMELY sore...but I walk like I have a stick up my butt I lost a fight with an exercise ball.

I have been following my friend Reyna's plan @ Glamour Glory.

So far I have completed:
I have lost 4.8lbs from my starting weight of 170. That is a lot of water weight...but great encouragement.

30 Days of Truth ( Day 13, 14 &15)

Day 13: A band or artist that has gotten you through some tough days.
I honestly can not choose just one band or artist. I live for music. I listen every type of music you could think of...even if it in a language I do not know. I pay close attention to lyrics. I more than often listen to a certain song over and over if it fits with my current mood or if it relates to something going on in my life.

Day 14: A hero that has let you down.
Is it odd to not have a hero? Uh, nope, I can not think of anyone. I mean, I admire many parents, my kids, my husband, past teachers, our troops. I just don't feel that I have a Hero. As far as those people letting me down...I don't always agree with their decisions in life...but what is that for me to judge?

Day 15: Something or someone you couldn’t live without, because you’ve tried living without it. 
My husband, I tried, it didn't work. I live without him more often than I would like because of deployments. Life is much easier when we are one.

30 Days of Truth (Day 11 & 12)

I work from Saturday @ 7AM til Sunday @ here is days 11 & 12 together.

Day 11: Something people seem to compliment you the most on.

My Eyes. I don't see whats so great about them. Though I always hear "You have such pretty eyes." or "Your eyes are beautiful." One of my favorite things is makeup. But I tend to get carried away =). I have been known to wear a little too much eye makeup. But I think I have huge eyes, so I have a big canvas to work with!

Day 12: Something you never get compliments on. 

Answering this question makes me feel selfish. But I wish I heard people acknowledge how willing I am to drop anything and everything to help someone out. I never hesitate to do something for a friend or family member. Once I drove to another state on a school night and then back home just in time for about 3 hours of sleep and a nursing test that morning...all because my friend needed my help. (I'm not complaining, I'd do it again!)
