Ok so its been forever.  I went back and read my last post which was about me taking my ATI test for nursing school.  Its crazy to think that now I have been a nurse for over a year now!  It makes me so sad that I have missed out on documenting so many experiences that I have had in the past year.  It has been very eventful so I will try and remember some of the highlights and put those in some of the upcoming posts :)
Right now Joel is very busy in his second year of medical school.  Joel really is doing so great in school this year.  Im so proud of him and how hard he works. 
We got a DOG!!  That was a pretty big change in our lives.  I was searching on craigslist for a new lawn mower and came across a picture of this cute little puppy.  It was love at first sight.  I knew I wanted her!  When we got her she was only 1 lb.  She was so tiny and looked like a little mouse running around our house.  The first week we got her all she wanted to do was cuddle with us.  She loved sleeping in my arm pit or snuggled up to my neck.  I remember thinking, " I am so glad that we got a dog that is so calm, cuddly, and dont know how to bark!".  Fast forward 5 months and our cute little Lola is now about five lbs.  She still loves to cuddle and is the ultimate lap dog but let me tell you, she definitely learned how to bark!  She loves people which turns out to be both her best and worst quality.  She wants to say hi to every person that she sees. Most people think she is so cute until she piddles on the shoe.  In fact, a few weeks ago Aunt LaNae came to our house.  LaNae picked up Lola and of course lola peed on her pants.  Joel was so frustrated and said, "I am SO sick of Lola peeing on our guests!!".  You and me both!  Its been such an adventure having her in our home these past few months. 

I love this picture.  One day I found lola walking around the kitchen like this.  She had found my nephew Jacobs paci.  She really is our little baby haha. 

I love this pic.  Of course potty training her has been a challenge.  One time Joel looked down and noticed that she was trying to "go #2" on our bathroom so he immediately picked her up and put her over the toilet.
