I sold my soul....

or at least it felt that way when I signed the master promissory note for my student loans. Last Friday, I officially finished high school, and I registered for nursing school at Provo College. Their program is nice because it is condensed into 27 months instead of 4 years. Also they accept 70% of their applicants while still following the same criteria as UVU and BYU, both of which only accept 8-10% of the applicants. March will be spent recertifing for my CNA license because I let it expire about eight years ago. Then come May I will officially begin nursing school, I am terrified! My friend Reecie will be going through the program with me, so at least I will have a study partner!

Egg noodles

So this year I have a goal of learning new cooking techniques, and adding a few new recipes that are entirely from scratch. So I rolled up my sleeves and delved into the world of noodle making. They are SOOOO easy and SOOOOO good. I don't think that I will ever make chicken noodle soup with store-bought noodles again. Give it a shot you will love these noodles to!

moving day!

No, we did not sell our house, it is actually off the market currently. However we still spent last weekend moving...sort of. We cleared out all our belongings from the basement, and condensed our upstairs belongs (thank heaven that we have a garage for storage!). Why might you ask? My BFF and her husband and five kids moved in. The g family has been good friends for over a decade so we are thrilled to have them. Space wise we are doing really well, a lot better than I expected. Since our dining area in the kitchen is so tiny, we converted our office upstairs to a dining room and I am really leaning towards permanently knocking out the wall in favor of that arrangement.
Having so many extra people in the house has been a little crazy as we have been adjusting, especially with Mark in school and me looking into starting a speciality program next month, but we love their kids so its been a blast so far!
A special shout out to Nathan and Kai for all the help!
