Catching Up & Chrysalis 48

Life has been CRA CRA lately! (That's my new word for crazy!) Lurrve it. Anyways, I've got a new job (which I start next week), had school /7 A.M. clinicals and Chrysalis 48!

Chrysalis 48 was awesome! We had an overly full walk which meant hot, smelly conference rooms. eek. Air fresheners only do so much. We had some pretty fantastic people working this walk which makes all the difference. God showed me several things this past weekend that I could give to Him... So I did. Isn't it a relief to not have to think/worry/drive yourself bonkers about all the things of this world? I've had so many things going on lately and I was going nuts. I finally had to just let God take control or the stress would become unbearable. (And I would get shingles...again. I just had them 2 weeks ago. Oh the joy of stress!) I'm always so sad when the weekend comes to an end. Life is so care free at Chrysalis. Someone tells you when to get up, when to eat, when to sleep...its basically the life. We get so caught up in all of our electronics and busy lives that sometimes its nice to not have all the distractions. I'm so thankful for my reunion group on Mondays so that I can continue to see all the people that I love and know through Chrysalis. I really don't know where I would be without some of the people that Ive met through Chrysalis. It's been God writing my story all along :] He knows what we need. Here's a few cute pictures from the weekend..

Photo bombers...Amanda Panda and I.

My favorites. Shelby & Melissa :]

Haiti Countdown...drum roll....47 days! It has snuck up on me. Thats. So. Close. AHH! So far, My super duper church family has collected 377 toothbrushes (and counting) for me to take to Haiti. 377! Some of these children probably don't even know what a toothbrush is! I'm so excited for each child to get their own toothbrush and see the cute designs. Some have Dora the Explorer, Thomas the Train, and Snoopy. Some light up and some have grippers on the bottom so they stand on there own. So adorable!

With Haiti quickly approaching, that also means Christmas is almost here and I have NO shopping done yet. I probably should get on that soon. I'm currently trying to convince my mom that it IS time for the Christmas tree to go up! I decorated some today for Christmas and it made me so happy. I love Christmas time but I just wish it didn't get cold. No bueno.

Oh, its 11-11-11...apparently it's a big deal.

Have a good week and decorate for Christmas!!
