lets begin with a mom update:
Mom had to go into the hospital on Friday afternoon. They were worried that she had appendicitis but after some examination they decided that that wasn't it and admitted her into the hospital. Come to find out she had Colitis and was put on IV antibiotics and pain medication. She was finally sent home yesterday morning with a bunch of antibiotics and she has to go back in a couple weeks to get things checked out further. That being said though she is doing well and when I talked to her last night she was ready to get back to playing with Hayden and cooking for Dad so those are really good signs I think!!
I am going home this coming weekend for my niece Carrie's bridal shower and conveniently it is also Mothers Day weekend so I can't wait to see her for myself and see how she is doing!
So my niece is getting married... how cool is that? For those of you that just know i have a ton of family members, Carrie is my oldest sister's youngest daughter, and she is the one that I lived with when I lived in Erie PA. She is currently residing in NC and will actually be getting married in Ireland.. how cool is that?? wish I had the money to go but hopefully she knows I am wishing her well!!
So the last week with Phil has been fun
we decided to get away for a day so we went to Madison Indiana to Clifty Falls to go hiking... let me tell you... it was quite the adventure... First off, our hotel was amazing because it was on a mountain side overlooking the river which was awesome. Hiking was good there but very tiring. I was looking forward to trying out my new hiking boots (I finally bought my hiking boots for Antarctica!!!) so it was a day for breaking in the boots and they actually worked really well. My feet didn't hurt, I didn't get wet even though we were wading through a foot of water at parts and I didn't fall which is always a good sign haha. It was quite humorous though because we had originally planned a 4 mile hike but we took a wrong turn and 5 hours later we had hiked almost 10 miles hahah It was still a great time though. I love when he is all manly and leading the way hahah. The trails were super steep and I was super tired by the end of it all but I had a great time.... We were worn out and passed out early that night haha.
So then on Friday I went with Emily to work on her horse Gus... Emily had a big horse show on Saturday so Friday night was spent braiding Gus's hair and giving him a bath and making him look pretty! It was actually a lot of fun getting to hang out in the stables and it was nice to be around horses again... I'm gonna make Phil go horseback riding with me soon I think hahaha
Saturday was graduation day for Phil. His family showed up at my house first since they were in Oxford and wanted to see the place since Phil is here so much. I hope they liked the place. His dad said it felt warm and homey which is completely what I think and was going for... Anything to not feel like an apartment but a home is good for me!! He did great at the ceremony!I was so proud of him and he looked so adorable walking across stage! Have I mentioned how proud of him I am? We all went out to dinner afterward to celebrate and I just kept smiling at him! He amazes me more everyday!!!
I am so incredibly short hahahah
So then on Sunday it was his mom's birthday and she wanted to go to the zoo so his sister and the two of us went to the zoo too! It was a great zoo and I loved that they had animals out for you to interact with and it was zoo babies month so we got to see a lot of baby animals which is always good in my eyes!!!
We didn't get home until late Sunday but it was amazing being with him all day and going home with him and just overall it was an amazing day!!!
One week until my 2 week long collaboration project!! Its gonna be a long two weeks but if it works my boss said we would get a publication out if it!!! Im super excited and can't wait!!!! Even if I have to write it I will still be excited lol
ok this is getting freakishly long so Im gonna stop now
Peace and Love to you all!!!
