What I've been up to…in pictures!

I really miss blogging.
I've just been so freaking busy!
This is what I've been up to while I haven't been in the blogging universe.

Hanging with Cosmo

Enjoying the beautiful night skies.

Waking up to an awesome sun rise.

I lost my last pair of contacts, so I've been sporting the glasses until I can see the eye doc. My prescription expired so I have to have my eyes re-tested. Bummer!

Exploring new music I hear on the radio.

Trying to stay alive at work. I'm not a fan of energy drinks, but this one is rather tasty.

Learning to crochet hats. I think I have it down now!

This is my first completed hat. Not too bad if I say so myself.

Trying to get Cosmo to model the new hat. He wasn't cooperating.

And lastly…

Enjoying the heat wave in Alaska!!!!

I hope all you Blogarinos have a great weekend!
What are your plans?
I start my work week today. Hopefully it's a great work week!

Bits of Randomness

I've been so busy this past week.
Today's post will be in bullet form!

  • Cosmo is adjusting well. If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you will notice he's been my subject in pictures. He's just so darn cute! 
  • Cosmo had a vet appointment this past Tuesday. He's 100% healthy, weighs a healthy 6.1 pounds and got all of his shots updated.
  • My brother comes home Monday. He's been working on the slope since June 25th. It's been nice having him gone, but it'll be good to see him. 
  • I went back to work at the hospital last Friday and I thought I was going to die! I forgot how hard my job really is. My knee was sore when I got off work, but it's to be expected. I haven't used my legs for anything in a long time. 
  • I woke up Wednesday with a massive migraine. I thought my head was going to explode. As I stumbled out of my bedroom (Cosmo at my heels) to get some ibuprofen, I ended up vomiting everywhere except the toilet. I was able to get a break to finally make it to the bathroom where I spent the next 25 minutes vomiting. It was so much fun afterwards to clean up the mess. Thank you Jesus for hardwood floors! 
  • I've downloaded the Couch to 5k app on my iPhone. I'm working on getting some music for a playlist and a nice day to start my first day. I'm hoping I can stick with something. I'm ready for change! 
  • I got my SIL her baby shower gifts. Now I just need to wrap and send it to her friend's house. She doesn't know that every one here in Alaska is sending boxes to her friend's house so her friend can surprise her on her baby shower. She's going to be so excited!! I got her an electric breast pump with milk storage bags, nursing pads, and the cream. I also got the baby some outfits. I wish I could be there for the baby shower, but I get to be there for the birth. I can't wait! Less than 60 days now!
Have a happy Thursday Blogarinos. I will be getting my house cleaned and ready to go back to work on Friday.

I tend to walk through life just...glancing.
My self-esteem and self-confidence are so low.
I can't look anyone in the eye as I walk past them, or even talk to them.
I just walk through life glancing as I pass by.

Six Word Saturday

Getting back in to the groove

I'm back at work this weekend. 
Trying to get back into the groove of things since I've been out for 106 days. 
Hoping for a smooth transition!

What are you doing this Saturday?

Back to work

After 106 days of not being able to work, I am finally back to work today.
I'm really happy, but nervous at the same time.
My knee has been acting pretty good. It's been a little sore after a lot of physical activity.
The doctor has cleared me for full duty, but I don't want to overdue it.
I know I'm going to have to be extra careful. I want to be able to do everything I did before and I know the whole team is expecting me to.
Here's to a pain free day today!
I'm sure if you follow me on Twitter, you'll be hearing ALL about it!

Happy Friday Blogarinos!

Somewhere Over the Rainbow

Some beautiful pictures of a rainbow outside of my window a few days ago.

Happy Thursday Blogarinos!

Bear Paw Jammin' Salmon Cook Off

This past weekend my mom came into town and asked if I would take her to Eagle River for the Jammin' Salmon Cook Off.
I was surprised because my mom has never done a cook off before, but the woman can cook! She is a head chef on the slope after all.
So Saturday we went shopping for the ingredients she needed to make her dishes. She decided on the Soups/Chowder and Entree divisions.

Momma doin' her thang!

 Cookin' her chowder

 Tellin' me to quit taking her picture. Ha!

 Serving her chowder to people

More people showing up to try her chowder

Mom was having a blast. She was being timed, but that didn't seem to phase her a bit! 
I wish I would have taken pictures of the completed dishes when she had them done, but it was so fast, I didn't think of it. 
While she was cooking, people could walk around and taste the dishes and could vote for the best one. Everyone who stopped by to try her chowder absolutely loved it! 
Her entree was a salmon stuffed with shrimp that she fished for herself from Prince William Sound. She was really proud of herself and so was I. This was something that she has never done before and tried. 
At the end of the day when they announced awards, she won 3rd place in the Soups/Chowder division. 
I'm so proud of her!

Meet Cosmo

This cute little thing is why I've been too busy to post.

His name is Cosmo and he's a six year old mini Yorkie.
I got a phone call from Hubster's aunt asking me if I was still looking for a dog.
I told her yes, as long as it was a hypo-allergenic dog since Hubster is allergic. That's when she told me about Cosmo. He's had seven different owners and they suspect he's been abused by a male because he is really skiddish around males.
When I came over to meet him, he ran right up to me and in my arms.
That's when I fell in love.
As you can see from the pictures, I get to take him to work until I'm back to full duty in the hospital and he is such a distraction!
He has seemed to adjust really well in my home and he likes Hubster too!

Happy Friday Blogarinos!
