First August Weekend Recap & Giveaway!

I can't believe it's already almost mid way through August! It just doesn't seem right - the summer seems way too short compared to the long cold winter we had. That being said, I am ready for the fall weather - if only we could ensure that winter would never come!

The weekend was pretty laid back, because it was spent working for 2 days. But guess what?! If you follow my instagram, you already saw, but my last night shift is over!


It was such a bitter sweet week - I am so happy to lead a normal life and not feel sick from switching back and forth all the time. My night shift friends were absolutely the best, and we'll still stay in touch. I'll be sad not to work with them anymore, but I'll get to make new friends too! It will be worth it in the end!



We took our Ollie-dog to the park to swim on Thursday night! He loves loves loves the water and it wears him out for when we're both at work. Whatever he is mixed with, I'm sure he's mostly lab!


There is a giveaway going on! Head on over to my instagram to see how to enter! It's super easy - just follow the participants via instagram and repost! You'll find my Minnie Bow Bullentin board and Pouf Pom Pom magnets!


My sister sent me this photo over the weekend - and how true this is! If you have a sister or a really close friend! I thought it would give some of you a laugh :)


In honor of back to school (even thought I don't go back to school) I made some prefall purchases! The sunnies and necklace were on clearance, and the shirt was 30% off - such a steal! I can't wait to style this shirt when it gets cooler! Plaid and pearls are the best!


How was your weekend?! I am linking up with these girls as usual!

  19. Congrats on being done with night shifts, even though you will miss your friends I bet it is quite the relief. Also I love seeing your photos of Ollie, he is just too adorable. I wish Misa behaved herself enough to be able to go swimming!

  24. Yay for no more night shifts! I worked as an antepartum/nursery nurse on nights for 12 years. I thought I was going to die. I am such a morning person. I thank God every day that I don't have to do that anymore! however, night shift nurses are so cool and the docs are scarce at night - so that is a trade off;) I am glad you are happy and your pup is precious. I am a lab mom too! Susan
