NCLEX and a promised update to come!

So I have to take my state boards soon, but maybe not soon enough. I feel like all my nursing knowledge is slowly seeping out of my head and once I get the opportunity to take the big test.

I really need to blog about:
1. graduation
2. being 32 weeks pregnant tomorrow :)
3.our big move to California coming up

and so much more but boy oh boy I'm so tired and mustering up the energy to type is hard after work 10 hours. I know most of you probably do not care but this is a good journal for me and it helps me talk my life out which I really like to do, I'm a talker or in this case a typer.

So soon i promise an update it will come, hope everyone is having a fantastic day....Oh by the way did it snow at your house today on the second to last day in APRIL ? Because it did at mine!!

He did it!

Larry graduated today! He did it. 3 years of non-stop school, lots of papers, tests..and it is not done yet because he still has 3 years of law school but this is a big deal!! My parents and David came up over the weekend and Larry's parents came to the ceremony.

It was a big deal because President Monson was the key not speaker!! It was amazing to see him so close my friend Jade Woods and I went super early to get good seats and so we were close to him. The cool thing was the entire first presidency came as well. I was so proud of Larry and it was a pretty emotional day being 7 1/2 months pregnant and all. It has been bitter sweet knowing we are leaving Utah soon. I have officially given up my RN spot for the falling year of nursing school, which was an emotional tearful ordeal for me. I have made lifelong friends in this program. Anyone that has gone through something so intense will always have that bond.

It was a cold cloudy day {figures right?} and I think I look nice and hugely pregnant so the event was not documented very well but here is proof that our college careers are coming to an end...for now. It was an emotional ride living in Utah these three years. I will always look back with really great memories though and it will always be a special place for us because Utah will be where our first baby was born and our adult lives really began.

Heart Beats, friday afternoon fun.

Today was eventful, after not feeling the baby kick, move, hiccup, NOTHING for 1 day I was getting worried I'm 30 weeks and its just that time where nightmare stories come about. Also I move heavy books all day and never sit down until the evening. Now I know I'm basically a nurse now that schools almost over {even though I feel like I still know nothing} and I should know better but I waited to call the Dr. I waited 2 days and then today after tremendous amount of back pain, a fever, and no moving baby I called and she said come on in.

Now I really don't want to be this paranoid person, I know a lot about babies and medicine and i got a long lecture at the hospital about how i needed to come in earlier but I just didn't want to. I tried EVERYTHING to get him to move for me. I got all hooked up and did a NST and magically his heart beat is there loud and clear and after a while he stars to wake up and move. I was mad at him, still am I little but I did get to lay there for 30 minutes just listening to his little heart beating away and my heart melted.

It was just one of those days...Im glad everything is good and he is healthy. I do wish I was bigger so he would have more room to move around, that apparently is the reason hes not moving as much because my belly isnt streching and hes squished, poor little guy because he still has to get bigger!!

April 15th

Tomorrow is April 15th...A day I have been dreading for months. Tomorrow we will officially put down a chunk of change, let me rephrase that are heaping amount of money to a law school to save Larry's spot. He has been accepted to 7-8 schools now I can't even remember {blame is on the almost 30 week pregnant brain} but the day has come where we had to make a choice even though we are waiting to hear back form 2 more still, good times here. I am happy/stressed/scared/overwhelmed to announce we will be moving to San Diego California as of now but could change :)

This week has been full of highs and lows particularly lows. I had to formally turn down my spot in my nursing school for next year and came home in tears thinking of all the work I have done and that I will be transferring to a 3rd school soon. I hate to say I have "sacrificed" a lot for Larry's law school career, I try to think of it has tweaking my plans or choosing to go another way in hopes of a better future for our family but it is hard on days like to day and next week with graduation, its bitter sweet sometimes.

Conference taught me a lot though, we are making the right decision to have this baby and to continue with school and somehow, I have no clue how but heavenly father will provide for us because if he doesn't, we will die and be homeless. {I should probably delete that, but that is how I feel at times, don't you?}

so tomorrows the big day in a way...we are looking for apartments and freaking out about how to move our stuff and have a baby and how its all going to work, at times I feel like it would be just easier to stay here forever, it would be BUT apparently I do not know how to make my life easier only harder...I'm going to work on that.

Easter weekend.

How touching is this? Hope everyone enjoyed and loved conference as much as I did. It was a well needed spiritual and emotional boost! I love these men as well as the many others who spoke from the heart and expressed joyous testimony on such a special Easter weekend.

Easter Miracle

After having a long stressful emotionally tolling week (Never let your husband convince you going to law school, and choosing where to move and stopping half way through nursing school and getting pregnant all at once is a great idea)

Larry and I went shopping for random things we ended up buy candles, pink peeps, a movie to send to my brother who is getting his tonsils out and Cadberry milk chocolate eggs. You know the good yummy ones that you can only get around Easter. Well after going to 3 stores searching for these coveted candies we succeeded!

Larry was on his hands and knees digging through bins of chocolate candy bags, and just when I was going to give up hope and start to cry he pulled the beautiful purple bag out! haha we bought two just in case I get a craving and we can't find them ever again.

it was quite the easter miracle
