In a Bit of a Slump

That's kinda how I have felt the past few days. Matt and Brad have been working non-stop on our new house; painting, cleaning, and just getting things ready for the move. We had the carpets cleaned this morning, so they had to take a little break to let them dry. I have been working. A lot. And, I've kinda had a stressful week, so I am really looking forward to this weekend. Our Pods were delivered today, so tomorrow and the rest of the weekend we will be moving in! I am SO ready to get into our house and have our own things! Especially my bed!
Have a good weekend!

Busy, Busy, Busy

Oh my! I was so excited about starting my new job... but since I started, life hasn't slowed down one bit! My first day was last Wednesday- and I walked into a mess of an office and therapists who had no idea what they should be doing. Thursday and Friday, my area director was in town, and she was able to help me a lot. I feel like I was on brain overload with everything I was doing. When I left work Friday, I was so excited. This job is a perfect fit for me.
I went to WM to see my mom and dad for the weekend... man, that's a long drive for a couple of days! (Still, much better than Cleveland, though!) We got to catch up, and I got to spend some QT with their new lab puppy, Chevy. When I got home Sunday night, I worked a while, while Matt and Brad started painting the new house. I'm hoping they are finished by the weekend, so I can clean and get ready for the big move-in!
Hope everyone is having a great week!

My New Job

I am soo excited about starting my new job tomorrow! I will be about 3 minutes from our apartment and even closer once we move into our house in August. I know I have so much to learn, but I am looking forward to this new chapter in my life. I will be an SLP half of the day and the Program Manager for all therapies the rest of the day. I will be learning medicare and private insurance billing, as well as planning the treatment times for each discipline for each patient. This facility has never had a therapy department before, so we are all starting with a blank slate. I am ready to jump in and get to learning!
Today, I went to Office Max and got a few supplies. I absolutely love office supplies! Pens and pencils, highlighters, paperclips, post-its, legal pads, binders, dividers, sharpies... I know I didn't get everything I need, but I didn't wanna break my bank in one stop. :)
I ordered some new scrubs last week. Red & Black, Black & Hot Pink, and Yellow & Light Blue. So, today I stopped at Old Navy and picked up some tee's to wear under my scrubs. They were on sale at $5 each, so I got 6! Can you tell I'm excited?
Have a good week!

What I'm Loving this Summer

Definitely not the heat... LOL!

I also love...
Urbane Scrubs

Toms Ballet Flats

Brooks Tennis Shoes
Coach Purse

Thirty-One Thermal Tote
All the little boutiques in NW Arkansas

And, most importantly, HOG FOOTBALL is right around the corner! September 1st is the BIG day!

Happy Birthday, Matt!

For Matt's birthday, his mom and dad came up to Fayetteville and we went to dinner at this amazing Italian restaurant, Theo's. It was so yummy. We all had appetizers and desserts, and I had scallops. So goo! I also picked up some cupcakes for him from Bliss... yummy! I never know what to buy him- he never really asks for anything and if he needs something, he just gets it himself. :) But, this year was a little different. With the heat this summer, he has been complaining about his jeep being too hot to even drive, so I am getting his windows tinted! Perfect, right? I hope so!

I love you!
