Friday Favorites


Happy Friday! This week has been a whirlwind with ATI testing, simulation labs, and exams, but I survived! I’m ending the week on a fun and lighter note with a “Friday Favorites” post. This is a post a lot of the lifestyle bloggers I follow will do on Fridays. It’s a post about some of the fun and happy things that happened during the week. Here we go!

First S’mores Frappucino

Smores Frapp

My sister and I drove through Starbucks this week while we were out and about. When we pulled up to the window I noticed the sign outside said that “S’mores Frappucinos are back!” Cue: Happy Dance! If you haven’t had one of these, you seriously need to run to Starbucks and order one! It is a chocolate, marshmallow, and coffee frappucino topped with whip cream and graham cracker crumbs. Yum!  It taste like summer in a cup. Drinking one has me ready for camping trips, pool days, and the beach!

Passing Psych Nursing


This class has been a challenge! Tests, projects, clinical, clinical paperwork, ATI, and medication teaching simulation all had me feeling like I was close to my breaking point at times. Nursing school is no joke! It requires absolute dedication to your studies and a drive to learn more information than you ever thought possible. The other side of that thought is I LOVE what I am learning and to be honest, I love school. It’s hard and long and stressful but there is something about college that I just really enjoy! Yes, I may be a bit of a nerd, 😉 but I’m totally OK with that. After all my long nights, early mornings, and test anxiety, I am officially done with Psych and moving right along to Mom/Baby! Four more classes to go!



Last night I was able to fall asleep early and not have to get up to an alarm this morning! I can’t tell you how amazing this was! In nursing school, your life truly becomes consumed with early morning class or clinical and late night study sessions! A lot of nights, the stress and anxiety of what is to come the next day can lead to poor sleep as well. I try to make sleep a priority, but there is something to be said about knowing you do not have to wake up to an alarm in the morning! Along with no alarm, instead of rushing out the door this morning, I grabbed my laptop, coffee, and enjoyed some time on our balcony! Win Win! I am looking forward to some more restful mornings over the next few weeks.

My first official week blogging

LogoMy first official week of blogging is coming to an end! I am humbled and blessed by the positive feedback I have received so far and the interest in my blog! Thank you so much! I have only been working on my blog for a few weeks, and it has only been live for one week, but I have to say I am really enjoying it! I am loving writing posts and find it to be a good stress relief so far (much needed in nursing school!) As stated in my first post, as of now, I really see this blog being geared toward my journey through nursing school and the nursing world; as well as the love, support, and encouragement of my fellow nurses and nursing students! However, I plan to write these articles in a way that I hope will be interesting for my non-nursey readers. I personally also love to read lifestyle posts, so I plan to include a heavy dose of those as well!

To all my fellow students who have finished exams, congratulations! We made it through another semester! To everyone who is still finishing up, good luck! It will be over sooner than you think! I am officially off to start my weekend. I have the next three weeks off before I return to school to begin OB nursing. I’m hoping to use the next few weeks to try to get my apartment, car, and life in order before returning to school, as well as a little rest and relaxation! Have a great weekend! Check back next week for more posts. 🙂
