Playing Catch Up

I have been such a blog slacker this last month and I apologize profusely!  So much has been going on that I haven’t had a moment to dedicate to the blog.  So let me fill you in on what has been going on in my life…

The semester is coming to a close,  I have my last final exam tomorrow morning.  This semester kicked my butt, I am so glad that I decided to take the summer off.  It will be my first summer of my entire college career that I will not be taking classes.  I am going to be graduating in December and I can’t wait.  I’m taking my MCAT exam on the 30th of this month (only 17 more days eeekkk) and I will be applying for medical school over the summer.

I may not be taking any classes but I was offered a summer job as a research assistant for a psychologist whose lab I have been working in.  So that should be exciting, plus she’s agreed to write me a kick-ass letter of recommendation!

I have purchased a few new outfits so I will be showing those to you all over the next couple weeks, super exciting!

Last, but not least…my children’s father, the man with whom I have shared a life with for 5 years, has finally officially proposed!!! YAY!!!

This was the moment! He was so sweet, he got all choked up and could barely get the words out 🙂

First he almost killed me on a hike up to a really pretty waterfall, I guess he wanted to make me earn the ring 😉 like I hadn’t already!

A picture of me standing in the middle of the river on a big rock, right where the waterfall comes through…then me almost falling into the river

It was all very romantic, it fit our relationship and it was very representative of him the way he proposed.  I guess my mom had told him to take me out to dinner and do it in the restaurant, but I’m glad he did it the way he did.  We were all alone, with our dogs, went on a really nice (hard) hike, had a picnic next to a waterfall.  Like I said, very romantic.  It was worth the wait.

Now we just have to wait another five years until we get married 🙂

Heres a picture of him and the dogs, so cute.

I promise to be better and post more, keep an eye out for more outfits and I have a bunch of stuff coming up that I’ll be posting about.  See you soon!
