This week was jam-packed full of amazing news-and-events!!! It started off with an interview, (yes interview)…Even though I JUST started a job about 5 months ago, I got offered an interview for the most amazing nursing job that I simply couldn’t turn down! The interview was for a Labor and Delivery RN position… Which (in my opinion) is such an amazing field of nursing because you literally get to experience a miracle every day at work!
A few days later I was offered (and accepted) the job, which was followed by me quitting my current job, which was tough because I know the staff invested a lot into me, and now i’m leaving! Not to mention I love all of the staff at my current job! However, they totally understood that it was an amazing opportunity being offered to me, so they were all excited for me, which is always a great way to leave a job if you have too!
This Friday was super busy as well as I orchestrated and prepped the menu for my friends bridal shower (who’s wedding I will be standing up in on December 11th!) We did a soup/salad/pie theme with hot cider in-a-jar for favors…And I must say everything turned out AMAZING!!!
Yesterday (Saturday) was my friends Bridal Shower at 1pm, so I started the day off with an early BodyPump workout came home to have a quick shake for breakfast!
This picture was actually sent to me by a reader, Laura Wendling, who is an AMAZING photographer, who happened to make my Pumpkin Pie Milkshake, and snapped a georgeous photo, and sent it on over to me! I thought i’d share her lovely talent with you all! To see more of her work head on over to her site here:

This past weekend was filled with some of my favorite Fall Festivities! My friends and I carved pumpkins, I created a pumpkin loaf/muffin recipe (coming this week), celebrated my mom’s birthday…And went to the apple orchard!
I also went to my sisters classroom (3rd graders are so great) and brought along some ‘candy corn’ cupcakes! (I got the idea here). They were so easy to make and they turned out pretty darn cute if I do say so myself! ;)
I simply used a box cake mix..and split the batter between 3 bowls, and used food coloring to make the and yellow/orange layers!
