Congratulations Whitney!

My little sister is graduating Vet tech school on Saturday. I am so proud of her. She never really liked to go to school when she was young and I think she had a hard time deciding to take this challenge on. She has outdone herself, and graduated on time with really good grades! She walks the stage on Saturday morning and my entire family will be there to see her. What an achievement.

We are 10 years apart in age and for most of our life growing up we were as close as sisters can be with that age gap. Over the last couple of years, Whitney has transformed into a fun, charismatic woman and we are closer than we have ever been. We have so much in common and I would not trade our time together for anything. She is one of my best friends and I love to share my thoughts, ideas, and fun times with her. I hope she continues to be ambitious, and I wish her all the best. Spread your wings and fly little sis! Love, Nik

Corporate Naps

I will start by saying, my Mother's Day was wonderful. I got to see all the Mothers in my life, and enjoyed my daughters to the fullest. Though it is hard to complain about life, I am so damn busy!

Let me just mention yesterday for example; Wake up feed children, go to work until about 4pm, Nuclear Medicine Meeting from 4-6pm, ride Metro home, start laundry, go for run, plant more flowers in yard (thanks to Aunt Tonya for the Mother's Day gift of plants), feed Paige, more laundry, make dinner (mind you, it is almost 8:45 at this point), eat, put kids to bed, enjoy a few glasses of wine, clean up laundry and kitchen, BED. I don't think my head hit the pillow until 11:45pm and the only time I really sat down was to eat and digest, UGG. Sadly this is about the most relaxing night of the week I get.

I have always been a really busy person. We are rarely ever home during the week, which is why the nights at home become mass chaos for me. I find myself having a much harder time coping with the business when I have 2 kids, and nice weather sometimes fuels the Craz. I get to work and have a hard time focusing due to exhaustion. Which finaly brings me to my point here, I think we need corporate naps: THese people have the right idea. This would help not only the working mother, but everyone who has a busy life and can't find the time to sit still during the day. Even if I had the chance to go home in the middle of the day, or early in the I'm going to be able to lay down and rest, RIGHT!

I love this weather.....

So we made it to the farm this weekend, and it was a total blast! We fit lots of activities in. Zach did a little Turkey Hunting, we celebrated Derby Day, hiked, fished, and just spent time shootin' the shit with friends and family! Kayla is getting so old, and it's times like this that really make me realize what a little girl she is turning into......SO FAST! Our friends came up on Saturday and we planned to go on a hike, so Kayla of course wanted to join along. This terrain is not bad, but in my mind I thought no way a 3 year old would be able to keep up, and no one wants to carry her, that's for sure. When we started to leave she ran in the house crying and pouting about not being able to join us. I felt so terrible and so did Zach, we decided to let her join us. She did such a great job! I was so proud of her, the only time she needed to be carried was down the steep hill, other than that she kept right up fighting through the tall grass and all:

What a big girl she was, she did do a little complaining the next day about her ankles hurting, but so did Mommy! Paige had fun too, she got to play in the exersaucer that is at the farm and she loved it:
Kayla got to play with her new Gator that she got for Christmas this year, and we needed to weight it down a little so she could get some traction............maybe this was not the best thing to use, but it sure did make for a cute picture.
It was such a fun weekend, and I can't wait to go back again:)
