Fridays- Pay to play

June 28, 2013

I’m currently in the middle of working 4 out of 5 days in a row for a total of 52 hours!  Since I’m a “per diem”  nurse, I don’t get vacation time. I work: get paid, don’t work: don’t get paid. Husband and I are gearing up for a trip and I’m super excited!  We are going to Lake Tahoe. I’ve been there once, earlier this year, during the winter.  I heard that it’s beautiful in an entirely different way in the summer…..we are stoked!  I just read a post from the blog: Eat, Live, Run, where she talks about her family tradition of going to Lake Tahoe every year. It sounds very relaxing. She also has a great summer reading list posted you can check out.

My high school reunion is coming up in a few months.  Crazy.  I remember thinking that 27 was so old. Now I think it’s the new 21 😉 One of my friend’s is planning the reunion so I have to go, and I’m actually pretty excited about it. I was looking at some old pictures when I realized how different I am from the person I was 10 years ago.  You wouldn’t even recognize me. I had short, spiky hair and dressed like a little chola/punk rocker. What was I thinking? I mean it looks good on some people, but I just looked like a little dork.

Hope the June gloom keeps wearing off, can’t wait for more beach days. Here are some of my favorite pictures from the past few weeks:

Angels Stadium

{Angels Stadium. My husband is a total Angels fan. I think it might have been a deal breaker if I had told him when we first met that I loved the Dodgers.}

{Getting ready to paddle out on my wavestorm.  By no means am I a surfer. I just like to go out and flop around sometimes.}

Have a great weekend!!

    Angels fans will have a chance to see a real winning franchise next week when the STL Cardinals visit. It will be nice to see our old friend Albert Pujols.
