I went to Old Town Arvada with my girlfriend, Njal, today to enjoy the sunshine, shop for spices and take some pictures! Check out the cute old barns with the railway running through it in my photos section!

Also, here is a picture of Brett getting his knee checked out by Njal's husband, Grant, who is graduating from the physical therapy program at Regis in May!

Grant assessing Brett's knee- great to have a physical therapist around!

Don't forget to check out the "photos" tab on the right hand side of my blog to catch a glimpse of Old Town Arvada!
Good morning readers,

I wanted to give you a little bit of an update from Denver! It seems like a few things worth mentioning have happened and since we live in a different state you might not find out for some time so here is a bit of an update!

Brett went back to the Dr. yesterday to get his knee checked after his bicycle accident. The sports-medicine doctor told him that he should give it 6 more weeks and if it is still not healed then they will do an MRI and some further investigation. However, Brett said the doctor seemed pretty confident that it should be getting better and wont be a lifelong issue. Hopefully!

Brett also applied for 1 year residency program at UCLA. Brett thinks it is a long shot but I like to try and stay optimistic and think that there is a good chance, especially if he got an interview! Brett's best friend, Brett Schussel, works at UCLA in the ICU so he told us about it and said he would try and pull some strings. We'll see... but yet another thing for you to keep your fingers and toes crossed for! It would be a really great experience for Brett and such a great first year in the field! As far as I know Brett will also be applying very heavily for jobs in Denver as well as Seattle!

While I like to think my life is as exciting as Brett, but it really isn't. I work. I cook. I eat. I play with the dog. I hang out with girlfriends and I enjoy the Denver sunshine as much as possible. This usually ends of being in the form of walking or running, which is never fun but serves a purpose! I have made a ton of great girlfriends here which is such a blessing! It sure makes our time here much more fun!

I also wanted to give a big congratulations to Steve and Val Teodoro! They have a little baby on the way and I am sure they could not be more excited!

Also, I will be coming home solo in June. Brett cannot make it because he is not sure when he boards test, the NCLEX, is going to be held and he could very well be studying like a mad man for it. I will be home the weekend of June 10 from Friday morning through Sunday night! Hope to see lots or all of you that weekend!

I hope everyone has a great weekend! I know we will!

The week kind of got the better of me so I have not done much on the creative side. However, we did have lots to celebrate in our family this week.
  • March 3rd was my parents 35th wedding anniversary as well as Lucas' 4th birthday.
  • Erica also had a birthday on the 4th!
Lets just say Brett and I felt like we had a few excuses to make a batch of funfetti cupcakes in honor of everyone! I also decided to use the cupcakes to my advantage and make a birthday card for Erica. (E, if you have not gotten the card yet, go check your mail and don't get mad at me for spoiling it. It's not my fault you never check your mail!)

Happy Birthday card- I printed it out, glued it to a blank card from Joann fabrics and sent it out with a message!! Way better than buying card!

Brett must have taken this picture on campus! The Regis campus is so pretty!

Love to you and hoping for a great weekend!
