Polka Dots


I'm obsessed with them :) The quickest way to make a fun nail design is to add polka dots. I have come across some awesome ways to make them even and easy to do. First off you can buy a dotting tool from a beauty supply store. The main benefit is that they are sturdy and come in MANY different sizes. Plus the handles are generally very pretty.

I don't have one of these mainly because I see no reason in paying for one when you can make one at home just as easy. I have come across 3 ways to do polka dots each with pros and cons. I'll start with the cheapest.

This is something you always have around you house. They are inexpensive and disposable which is great if you do a lot of nail designs. Really nice for multiple color designs because you can toss it instead of cleaning it off. The con would be the size of the dot. You either get a tiny dot or the dot is big but has wayy too much polish. If you are like me you hate waiting for polish to dry and a thick dot will take a very long time to dry. If you are just starting out though these are great. They definitely can work for more intricate designs that require a small tool though :) Plus remember things like toothpicks that are square shaped can make fun designs.

End of a paintbrush
While you may not have one at home they are inexpensive also. These make consistent sized dots and are very easy to hold in your hand. One big con is the type of brush. Do not buy brushes with painted wooden handles. When you go to clean them off and start a new set of dots the paint will come off in the polish. I have some with red handles and I would get red spotted dots but not in a good way. I suggest the super cheap ones for kids. You can get different sized handles and do fun dot designs.

My Absolute Favorite 
Mechanical Pencil
This is the hands down best way to make polka dots. It is so easy because you hold it just like a pencil and it is much more left hand friendly (with practice). It makes consistent sized dots and it can be cleaned so easily. Just dip the end and it's perfect. Extra tip - for huge dots use the eraser end :). The con is that you lose a pencil. The polish will get inside the lead barrel and ruin the pencil. But I mean they aren't that expensive. Just pick a color you don't like and use that one. My favorite are BIC pencils because they have a rounded but blunt end. Don't forget to remove the lead so you don't waste it. You can also check out different sized pencils to get various dot sizes.

The Process
I always paint a base color so that the dots show up better. A fun way is to paint each nail a different bright color. It will look super scary but the dots tone down the colors a lot. I do this more for toe nails because it is more work and it stays on longer. For fingernails I paint one color or I alternate nails (especially for holidays) Just like I did for my Halloween look at the bottom of the page. I let the color(s) dry very well. If the base color is still wet and you dot on top of it with too much pressure the colors will mix and make it very messy. Once the base coat is dry I put a few dabs of polish on the front of a magazine. The glossy cover makes the polish get onto the tool well plus it is a great way to recycle them. After each look tear off the page and use the next one. Just make sure you remember it has wet polish and don't stick your hand in it. I then use whatever tool and begin dotting. Spacing the dots so they don't look planned just takes practice. If it helps look at someone else's picture and match the locations they use. In time you will get used to how to space them out. Once you are done either toss the toothpick or clean off your tool. Then let your nails dry for a while. The dots can have many layers of polish and if you mess them up they will flatten out and look very crappy. The key to polka dots is to keep them clean and defined. By all means use a good top coat. I recommend Seche Vite, totally worth the cost. I hope this helps and gives you some fun polish ideas. Last hint - glitter dots can look very pretty mixed in with the white dots :) Also you don't have to put dots over the whole nail. A diagonal line of dots can be very pretty.

Christmas Goody

This is a bit of a re-promote but it's a really good one. I have a youtube video about the Victoria's Secret Ultimate makeup kit (link at the bottom). I just learned it is back out again for this year. I am going to search for a coupon code if I can find one. If I can't find it now i'll keep looking and get it on here asap. This kit is totally awesome. It has a ton of great eyeshadows, lipsticks, lip gloss, blushes, bronzer and a translucent powder. It also comes with some not so great brushes, a red lip liner (BAD), and a black eyeliner. I'm not really sure how great the eyeliner is because I don't really use pencil eyeliners. The idea of splinters sorta terrifies me. Once I got this kit I used it religiously for a long time. I was amazed at the quality of the eyeshadows and the blushes are super pigmented. The only negative is that I don't own this kit anymore. I gave it to a girl in my nursing class who is a makeup junkie. It was certainly not because I disliked it but more that I knew I had plenty of other things to play with. I hope you check this one out for a great kit. It is wonderful as an all inclusive kit for travel just be sure it is protected in your bag due to the mirror. They have also released a mega makeup kit that has more options. I assume the quality is the same but I have not personally ever seen it. I was also told it would be just $25 for black friday in the comments under my video so that is totally awesome :)

Youtube Video

Makeup Kit - $29.50

Mega Makeup Kit - $44.00

Keep in mind that coupon codes expire often so this one may or may not work for you. I will try my best to keep it updated with the newest and most dependable codes. For the record most of my codes come from Retail Me Not It is a fabulous site that I use all the time. You can also google Store Name + coupons code/promotional code/offer code (best bet is to look at the site and see what jargon they use for their codes) If I do not have a code on here and you are going to purchase from any site please @reply me on twitter and ask first. I am all about deals.  - Callisonannee

First code is FA1023785 - this is for $15 off of $100 or more. Expires 12/15 - this would be great if you are purchasing for multiple people

Also checkout the sites for Black Friday. Free shipping is very likely and % off is common too. Enjoy :)

Update and New Obsession

Yes, I am still alive. School has been crazy busy lately. We have a test pretty much every two weeks and we have to make at least an 80 in the class to pass. Luckily i'm doing really well on my tests. We also have 12 hour clinicals each week and that has been insane. I'm in a group of 5 and I was the first to have two patients. (eeekk). So for the last 3 out of 4 weeks I've had two patients. One week both of my patients went home the night before. The weird thing is these patients are on a progressive care unit with tele so they all have heart conditions. Meaning each one gets around 15 medications at 10 am alone. So for two patients both with >10 meds at 10 am I have 1 hour to report to my instructor and physically give the medications. At the same time it is really awesome. I feel honored that my instructor chose me plus I actually had an instructors family member as a patient. <--totally honored to be trusted that much. I am just counting down until May and graduation. Then i'll be all worried about the NCLEX-RN which I have to pass to be a nurse. So back to fun stuff.

My newest obsession has been nails. I have been a nail biter all my life which is the worst habit ever. I quit when I got married for a few months but started again with nursing school. Then I quit after I got a horrible cold but school started it again. Well recently I have stopped again. The key to stopping is to have a reason. My reason is always my health. I get horrible colds and I know that is why. My immune system isn't great but biting my nails makes it 100000x worst. So anyways the way I stop is to ALWAYS paint my nails. Even if it is only clear nail polish it makes a huge difference. But painting my nails is also a stress relieving type of thing which has lead to LOTS of painting. I wanted to post some pictures of recent favorites and i'll be sure to take pictures as I do more designs. (Some of these are from sites I have seen so don't go crazy that i'm copying everyone because well....I am) First two are feet so let all the creepy feet people flock here haha

Vampire Toes 
Frankenstein Toes 
Packman ghosts. They are the appropriate colors
and their eyes are going the correct direction 
Packman. I figured it would stand out better on a
black nail. 
Mario mushrooms

Up close of the design
Halloween nails right hand

Halloween nails left hand

So basically I've been painting my nails a lot. I'll make a conscious effort to take pictures of each design I do. They generally only last a day or two with work. Plus I can't have them for clinicals so they get clear polish on Tuesday and Wednesday. Hope you all like the designs :)

My absolute newest obsession is the bluish pink blush in the coastal scents 10 color blush palette. Seriously it is amazing! It looks scary and is even more terrifying when you see how much goes onto your brush but it is beautiful. I got the idea for it once TiffanyD did her perfect blush application video. I think that was it at least. But she suggested using a bluish tone which I am shocked at how pretty it is. I have a very pinky skin tone when i'm warm so this bluish tint goes on so pretty. I'll post a picture to show exactly which one I love.
(Top Center) It is much more vivid in person

In other news Sex and the City 2 comes out next week. I'm super excited about it. I got hooked on SATC many years ago when it would come on tbs at 11 and 11:30 each night. Then one Christmas my mom bought me all the dvds and I watched them all the way through in like 2 days and it was ridiculous. I had watched them all on tv so the HBO version...umm not the same at all.  I just really really love the show. I know some people say it's silly and stupid and whorish or whatever but I just feel like it's a great plot line and the characters are so likeable. Needless to say my butt will be watching it as soon as I can and then i'll add the dvd to my collection as soon as it's out.  Now I feel like I need to re watch it from the very beginning. Are there any other SATCaholics out there???

My other love is the To The Beach collection. I plan on getting the pink blush which I believe is hipness. I also plan on getting the marine life powder which is just amazing by itself. I might also get the golden lipgloss which looks perfect for summer. These are my anniversary gifts so I get so much money to spend on whatever. I have to balance that amount between make up and new pants. As you all know if you watched my OOTD none of my pants fit me at all. I was wearing a size 12 and now i'm in a size 8 so my 12's make me look like a fool. I really want the powder, blush and also mac's creme blush in lady blush. Then I have to decide where I can maximize my money on pants. Even though most of you probably don't like it I'll definitely be at walmart where the jeans are are super cheap and awesome :) Just like your mom ;)

Time for Some Bitching

Ugh these are driving me crazy. It sucks because some of my favorite people are doing them but I refuse to get on twitter and be forced to buy shit for a dog I don't even have. I totally understand making money on youtube and even on blogs. Those are tailored towards the topic I'm watching. I'd expect to watch a big guru do a video on CoverGirl and then see a CoverGirl ad by their video. Hello...that makes sense. But no I don't want to create movies, buy dog food, buy sunglasses or any of the above stupid stuff. It seems really desperate to me and disrespectful. I completely agree that it is your twitter and you can post whatever you want but there is a difference between writing about a topic people don't like and greedily posting ridiculous ads to make a few bucks. Hate me if you want to but don't get pissed when you try to DM me and it says "i'm sorry but Callisonannee isn't following you". Thanks but if I wanted to be apart of your money scam then I'd jump on that bandwagon too.

This reminds me of another thing I hate..."Please RT I'm trying to get to 1 million subscribers and i'm only 999,999 away!!!". Dear person, I'm already following you...meaning I already am subscribed to you. I don't want to be constantly spammed with you begging me to beg other people to subscribe. Honestly I don't want people just to subscribe to me because Jimmy John asks them to. Before I get hated on, yes i've had shoutouts before but I didn't ask for them. I may have said on twitter "wow i'm only 5 away from 100" but I have NEVER posted my own link and or begged for a retweet. Y'all will realize this when I get to hold my first contest (once I get some money). Once I post the video I will mark in my email the last subscriber and only those previously subscribed may enter the contest. I feel like contests are for people who actually watch my videos and not people who subscribe, enter the contest, bitch about losing and then unsubscribe. No thanks!

Shew...I feel better now :)

Operation Move

Ahhh I am officially moved :) I am so excited to be in a new place (parents house) and out of that apartment. Don't get me wrong though, I loved our apartment but the location was horrible. We were across a drawbridge which was under construction and we were sorta kinda trapped during the weeknights. Sunday-Thurs from like 11-4 AM the bridge was closed to all traffic except for emergency personnel. Meaning the only way to get to the mainland was to drive 40 minutes out of the way rather than literally cross the damn bridge. It was a total pain also because when they aren't doing construction it is a working bridge on a very busy channel of water. It can open every 30 min. and let me just tell you sailboats take a long ass time to get through. All in all I will miss our first apartment as a married couple just not the location it was in.

The cats LOVE my parents house. They have never been anywhere this big and I think they are still a little awestruck by it. They explore each room and constantly head up and down the stairs. As I sit and watch tv I hear them running the length of the house and then sliding on the wood floor after hauling ass down the staircase. It's so funny. Plus Brewer, our less talkative male cat, has been meowing non-stop. I swear he just likes the sound of his voice in a big open space. That or he is yelling to his sister "omg look what else I found in here". It's too cute and we both totally love it.

Most of my stuff has been moved and Clay is staying here with me until he moves in at school in July. I'm so happy he is staying here and that I even got him to stay here tonight :). We are heading back to the apartment tomorrow to pack up some more stuff and then soon we will be canceling our cable which will be awesome. Totally excited for a cheaper cable cable is WAY too expensive. We still have my love seat to bring to my parents house and then our big sofa to take to the storage unit. Our washer and dryer also have to go and that will be a pain as well. It's good though because we don't technically have to be out until the end of the month so we will have lots of time to clean and get everything done before the final carpet clean and move out day. We are praying we get our deposit back as long as they don't notice the on the carpet :). Luckily they don't do that anymore but as kittens they just thought it was a fun scratching toy. Clay is going to try to trim the frayed edges and camouflage it as best as we can.

All in all it was a successful day and hopefully with a yucky rainy week ahead we can get a lot done. I start school on the 25th :( booo

Callie = Not Fashionable

As I look through many of the fashion blogs and fashion websites I come to a sad reality - I am NOT fashionable. At least not to anyone who matters. I am one of those people that finds something that works for me and I stick with it forever. I try new things but I don't look to Cosmo or Elle or any of the 1000's of fashion magazines to pick my next outfit. I figured I'd do a quick post on some of my biggest fashion pet peeves because obviously I am someone to look to for fashion *eye roll*

1) Booties - These drive me crazy. If you are going to wear a boot then wear a boot...don't wear a half-assed boot. It's just bad. Wearing them at all bothers me, wearing them WITH shorts or a short skirt physically pains me. It's just a fashion trend that I hope moves on quickly

2) Skinny Jeans - Now before I get attacked let me explain. Yes, they do look good on ultra skinny girls with minimal curves. However, there are only about 4 of those girls in existence at any one time. They are typically worn by girls with larger feet and larger hips and they end up making the girls look MUCH larger than they really are. Maybe it's just because I was brought up when flared jeans were coming back but I will always be a boot cut type of girl.

3) Military style boots - I think those speak for themselves really.

4) Crocs (crock of shit??) - No...please God no. If you are wearing them to garden or possibly to work that's fine. But if you aren't an adorable 4 year child then you shouldn't be wearing them.

5) Uggs - the issue with Uggs is that people don't generally wear them when it's cold. They are worn with denim skirts (vomit) and jean shorts (double vomit). If it is warm enough to wear those outfits then fur boots aren't necessary. However, if you are from the Artic then please by all means wear your Ugg boots with pride! I must also point out... uggs...ugly...really it's just too easy.

6) Denim button up shirts - I can't help but remember 2nd grade when I see these. I think mine had Mickey Mouse on it.

7) Toms - Maybe I just don't get it or something??

8) Shoulder pads - I only like these in Peacoats or certain business suits. Most of the time they just make things look too masculine.

Obviously I'm not a fashion guru and I don't ever want to be. I prefer to be comfortable over fashionable and I'm ok blending into a crowd. I just like clothes that look good on me and are my style. I will never wear something because someone else does or because I feel like I'm supposed to. Hate it if you want to but at least it's my opinion :)

Never Have I Ever - Extended Version

I was trying to think of a fun tag to do on here and I tweeted it and or
on twitter prettyinpink006 tagged me to do her Never Have I Ever TAG - Beauty Edition. I posted a video yesterday on my youtube channel about it but this way I can do an extended edition and I can do some additional things that aren't only beauty. :)

1) Never have I ever bought an OPI nail polish
- I'm not sure why but I think it's because I've just never had the opportunity to buy them

2) Never have I ever gotten a perm
Um....I have enough frizz but thanks anyways

3) Never have I ever bought a clothing item that cost more than $200 (or so) dollars.
Yes...that includes my wedding dress. It retailed for over $1,200 but we got the last one in DB and it was my size

4) Never have I ever had anything waxed
Not my face or body. I'm not against it at all but I've just never really done it

5) Never have I ever worn a bright lipstick excluding my cheerleading years
I am still traumatized by the bright red lipstick in elementary school...ahh the horror!!!

6) Never have I ever worn my hair down an entire day.
As soon as I don't have to be pretty anymore or I get home my hair goes up. I do not understand how people wear their hair down all the time...or without putting it behind their ears...ahhh it's just bad

7) Never have I ever been able to stick to a skin care regimen
I change mine all the time and I'm horrible at staying on schedule

8) Never have I ever worn braids in public after 4th grade
It's just not a good look on all

9) Never have I ever worn black nail polish.
Not a fan at all

10) Never have I ever worn volumized hair.
I don't like a lot of volume in my hair. It looks horrible!!!

11) Never have I ever worn a french braid.
My mom couldn't french braid and by the time my friends were old enough to do it I looked silly with one.

Top 15 Childhood Memories Good and Bad

My sister suggested I do my top 15 childhood memories as a type of TAG :) These are in no particular order. Just a small glimpe into my life as a kid.

  1. Throwing up in Disney World in front of the Tower of Terror. Did I ride it? Um no. My sister just scared me so much about the actual ride plus shear exhaustion of being young and dragged all over disneyworld. It was just not a good day for Callie at all (I also threw up at a Braves game...all down my dads back as he carried me out of the stands)
  2. Trips at the beach to what we like to call the "Pantry" with my Papaw (grandfather) We would ride down together on his bicycle with me sitting in his lap.  Every time we went inside he'd joke that I had to pay for my own candy or I didn't get any. Every time he bought me more than I ever needed and told me not to tell Mom and Dad :)
  3. Along the same lines - Trips to McDonald's with my Papaw. Growing up, there was only one thing I ate at McDonalds that would be a "Kids-meal-cheeseburger-with-a-dr-pepper" <-- I could say this in about 2 seconds. Even if we had gone 7 kajillion times EVERY time we pulled up to order he would be like "what is it that you want again?" I'll never know if he as just joking but it cracked me up every time
  4. Watching Nascar with my dad on sunday mornings. I remember getting up and laying on the couch with him watching the races. Great sundays :)
  5. Anytime my parents went out and left my sister as my babysitter. The nights always went like this Sister - leave me alone and go do something else.  Me - fine see if I care. Then I would put on an old cheerleading uniform and eat chips and salsa until my stomach hurt so bad. I swear this was the same thing every single time
  6. Going to the beach with my mom. Growing up my mom was a stay at home mom so in the summer she would take me to the beach with her when she went. We would spend 2-3 weeks at my grandparents beach house. It was some of my favorite times :)
  7. Thinking that I could honestly marry my dog. We had a Lhasa Apso from when I was 5 until I was 20. We cut his hair short so he had this adorable scruffy look which suited him well because his name was Snuffie. He was as much a family member as anyone else and I couldn't understand as a kid why I couldn't marry him. He was the perfect man :)
  8. Playing kick the can with my sister and all the neighborhood kids. It's a game where you hide and the "it' person tries to find you. The only way to prevent being tagged was to run out to where the "it" person couldn't see you and kick a 2 liter bottle stuffed with sticks and rocks. Then you were safe and couldn't be tagged. We would play until our parents deemed it too late and pulled us in. 
  9. Staying up until 5 am with my best friend and laying in the road in our neighborhood during the hot summer nights. Then running like little girls when a strange creepy truck drove up the road. Then feeling like morons when we realized it was the newspaper man and not the creepy rapist that we thought 
  10. My awesome/fantastic/massive sleepovers. Do I have a lot of friends now? Nope. Did I have a lot of friends in elementary school? You bet your ass I did. I would have sleepovers with 10-15 girls and we'd stay up in our basement dancing, playing, eating candy, and causing all sorts of mayhem. It was so much fun and I was always the last person awake. No surprise for most of you though.
  11. My infamous stand out of the crowd moment. In kindergarten I decided that taking swish (literally swishing a fluoride mixture in your mouth for a minute in school) was disgusting and I wouldn't do it. My teacher then put me in the back room to prevent the rest of the class from rebelling. I remember her trying to make me open my mouth to take the swish to which I did the ever obnoxious purse lips together and smile while shaking my head. Later that afternoon my mom picked me up to go to the dentist where I also refused to bite onto the mouth tray with fluoride foam on it. Needless to say when my already irate mother got home to listen to the message from my kindergarten teacher about my day at was not a fun time for me. However I never had to do swish again :) We call this my Norma Rae moment
  12. Waking up in my parents bed between them with no knowledge of walking in there. I had a horrible time as a kid sleeping in my room so i'd go to my sisters first only to be kicked out of her bed (literally) then i'd go to my parents and be promptly sent back to my room. Somewhere in there I developed an ability to sleep walk into there room without waking them at all or me. It was pretty awesome.
  13. Escaping my parents baby safe room. One day my parents had to take my sister to school (about 1 mile away (but didn't want to take me with them) Since I was a baby they tied my room door shut (it opened into the room so they tied it to the door across the hallway). Somehow when they got home I was out of the room. They still to this day have no idea how I did it. Ninja Callie
  14. My grandparents beach house had a downstairs outside shower. As a kid I hated it and never wanted to use it. I remember running up the back steps and knocking on the back door. I was then met by my Nanny (grandmother) who picked me up and put me into the bathtub. She always says she will never forget seeing me as a kid at the backdoor asking to be put into the bath.
  15. The HOURS I spent in the tub as a kid. I loved taking baths. I don't mean like "oh i kinda liked them" I mean that I could spend literally hours in a tub until the water went cold and I had to drain and refill the tub. I also used to take the small bathroom dixie cups, tear them into to shapes and glue them onto the doors of the shower. By glue I mean I used bar soap and stuck them onto the door. I was quite proud of this and always made my parents look at my creation. I'm sure that is how Picasso started :)


I thoroughly enjoyed my spring break meaning I also didn't film one single thing. I'm a failure haha. I honestly just wasn't in the mood to film and I refuse to film just to have enough videos. I hate when you can tell someone isn't in the mood to film. I have a checkoff today and then my week consists of studying and laundry (like 6 loads haha).  I'm hoping to get back into the groove and film some stuff. I have two great looks that I love and I'm excited to film those. One consists of using some drugstore stuff I kinda forgot I even had. I also want to film my summer foundation routine which I am loving a lot. I am trying to get back into the picture taking but I will lose my camera for a week while my parents are in Cancun so that kinda sucks. I also want to film the Never Have I Ever beauty edition TAG that Tracy and Stef did in their last video (eleventhgorgeous). I have some pretty good ones that I can use.

I cannot believe how quickly summer is coming up. I have classes all summer but we will be doing obstetrics and labor and deliver. If you don't already know that is what I want to specialize in. I love everything that relates to women's health and pregnancy. Hopefully i'll feel the same way at the end of the summer. Nursing school is going so fast yet also going so slow. It's very weird. I hope everyone is having a fantastic week and look out for some new videos from me :)

P.S. If you are an avid runner - my sister, dad, and husband are running in the Marine Corp Marathon on 10/31 in D.C. so my sister started a blog about her running, marathon training and general exercise stuff. Check it out if you are interested and follow it if you want to see the updates :) (she also has a masters in english so don't compare her grammar and whatnot with mine lol) She also recently lost 60 lbs so be sure to congratulate her on that :)

Spring Break

Ahh we have had a great spring break so far! Clay and the cats came down on friday and then I came on saturday after work. We went and ate BBQ and it was truly amazing. I'm not sure why but this place has the best BBQ I've ever had and trust me i've eaten a lot of BBQ. All week we have laid on the beach and eaten food all day. It has been amazing to catch up on sleep. I looked in the mirror today and was amazed at the difference in dark circles when you go from avg 2-3 hours of sleep to 9-10 hours. The only negative is that on monday night I had the worst tooth pain i've ever had in my life. On Tuesday I found a dentist on the island and paid 50 dollars for him to say "oh your wisdom tooth is causing pain on another tooth." Basically I just need to get my wisdom teeth out asap.

Beauty related - before I came down I picked up some of the Covergirl tinted moisturizer. I'm very impressed by it. I'm not a big fan of powder in the summer time because face it - no one has a perfectly matte face in the dead of summer. This is an excellent moisturizer and provides a nice light coverage. I just use concealer in the problem areas and it looks really good. I got mine in light to medium and it matches perfectly. I've heard good stuff about Clinique's tinted moisturizer but I just don't want to pay that much for it. I've been bad with filming videos down here :(. The problem is the time where the lighting is best is also the time where we are at the beach. Our day generally consists of wake up, eat lunch or pack lunch, go to the beach, shower, go to dinner, watch tv, and then go to bed. This house has horrible lighting at night time because it's just a vacation home. I most likely won't get one up until I go home but I have a few planned that I'm super excited about. I had the chance to go to ulta today but i've decided to continue saving up for the MAC To The Beach collection. My order will be placed at midnight the day it comes out and i'm super excited for it. Hope everyone is having a fantastic week :)

I have some pictures to post but they are on the camera which is downstairs and I'm super lazy right now. They will be up soon though I promise :)

Regular Post

I just wanted to do a real quick post since I'm not able to put pictures up tonight. I took some amazing pictures at the beach today but then I had to rush to the hospital to get my clinical assignment and then we have to look up and know all our meds and look up the patients history and what not. Needless to say we get our assignments at 2pm and I'm just finishing up my paperwork right now at 12:03 AM. Ugh i'm a tired lady. I will be on the floor tomorrow from 7am-5:30pm and then we have post conference from 5:30pm-7pmish. I have also had some weird things going on with school that I can't really discuss so that ate up some of my time today with my paperwork. Either way I start spring break tomorrow night as soon as we are done. I'm so excited to have some free time which translates to - do what I want and study every second I'm not doing something fun. My beach reading will be about neuromuscular assessments and diabetes :(. We have our hardest test coming up first of May and I'm not excited about that at all. I really want to start studying for both final tests and finals waaay in advance. Just pray that tomorrow goes well and that I heal my patient and we also get out early (haha yeah right). Thanks for everything!!!

Have a great April Fool's Day
