Today's Post Brought To You By The Letter S....

Summer....I don't want to jump the gun and say I am ready for summer, but dang, it is SO cold this winter. I actually like this weather. In my pajamas, with 16 cups of coffee and a movie marathon. Let's just say it doesn't spark any motivation for me! :) 

Student Nurses Association...I am the mentor coordinator which basically means I just help the new kids get paired up with a mentor so they have an idea of whats going on their first semester. But, alas, this is the picture that made me decide, it's time to do something about all the weight I have put on in nursing school. It doesn't help that all of these girls are 20...or younger. Bummer!!

Sunny...Friday it was gorgeous outside so after my test I picked Madeline up and took her to the lake. Our friends met us out there about an hour later, and we ended up being there for over 3 hours. It was awesome!!! Although, Madeline was SUPER cranky Friday night! 

 She stood up on one of the slides - not quite this tall, but tall enough. She said "1, 2, 3, Jump" and seriously wanted to jump off the slide. I stopped her, but I might as well start saving for my pacemaker now for when my heart officially stops.
Swimsuit...Madeline can be found in this 20 degree weather wearing her "bathing soup". She talks about the beach all the time. I am loving her hair in this pic...and the stained face! :)

Smoothies....I made a new recipe yesterday. Chocolate protein powder, flax seeds (I use the ground kind), powdered peanut butter, half a banana, and a splash of unsweetened vanilla almond milk. It was delicious! 

 I can't even express how much I love this blender. SO easy!
School...this is the most important part of this post. I am hoping we found a school for Madeline. And by we, I mean me, because Terry would start looking at this when he had to go to work and needed somewhere for Madeline to go! :) It's called Lighthouse Academy, and it's a Christian school in Gulf Breeze. We had already agreed that we wanted Madeline in a Christian school - I know that's highly controversial, but it's important to us and we feel that it's worth the money. Anyway, the Gulf Breeze campus is held at the zoo!!! Can you imagine a more perfect school for my child??? We are meeting with them in March to see if Madeline is ready for Pre-K4 even though she'll be 3 when we get there. If they think she's ready, then she'll start in Pre-K and then go to kindergarten a year early. I don't want to push her and I won't if she's not ready. I think she's pretty smart so I am excited to see what they think. I feel like I better start a learning boot camp for her before we go! :) Totally kidding...ain't nobody got time for dat! Anyway, I am praying that I love it as much as I love it on their website and talking to them over the phone.

Happy Wednesday!!!
