Lately, my blog has been filled with link-ups..
And that’s been about it.
Don’t get me wrong.. I love the link-ups I take part of.
I’m not giving those up.
I want to try and do more of my own updates.
It’s kind of crazy how life can get in the way.

Lately, I’ve been doing pretty great.
Spring classes have already stressed me out.. it’s still week 2.
Lucas and I are only 14 days away from boarding the plane to Nashville!
I have butterflies just thinking about it!

If any of you live down south, I’m totally jealous!
I’m excited to go to Nashville because it’s for the St. Jude marathon..
I think I’ve mentioned before I’m going to school to become an RN.
I plan on working at a Children’s Hospital, preferably St. Jude.. in Nashville.
But, I’m also a HUGE country fan. I turned Lucas into a country fan.
He bought me tickets last year for Tim McGraw & Luke Bryan..
I danced my ass off and even Lucas had an awesome time!
Ever since, he’s been a country fan!

But.. I really think I’d enjoy the southern lifestyle.
Not just because of country music, lol.

I’ve been excited that I’ve found some of you on Instagram! (Or vice versa)
That’s the only social networking site I haven’t neglected.
Feel free to follow me, I’d love to follow you back!

I’m trying to make some positive changes in my life.
I think stress has gotten the best of me lately.
I overthink everything. That hasn’t helped me one bit.
I need to get more organized. Fast.

It kind of really sucks to work till 3am or later, then have to be up at 7am.
Oh life…

Hopefully you’ll all be seeing more of me!!
