A real update!

Hey Guys!

I finally have a moment to update this poor blog of mine! I have been super busy and lots has been going on! I don't even know where to start past updating so I will update with the present!

I started my new classes this week. I going half time this semester instead of full. I would have liked to have gone full time but the classes I needed were full. So right now I am just taking the last of my pre-recs. I have my English class totally online...which is nice (but I'm worried may be hard, TONS of reading) and another Communications class...which I enjoy so I am looking forward to that. Next month we can start enrolling for spring semester which starts in I am going to take advantage of that and get my classes set up early this time! I am going for Dental Assisting and these classes seem to fill up very quickly!

Olivia is turning 4 years old in 12 days! I cannot believe what a big girl she is now...and how independent she is getting. She now is fully out of pull ups. We had only used the pull ups for bedtime but she now sleeps in big girl underpants! Yeahh!

Cory is working a lot lately and he just started his classes last week as well. He is taking 4 classes this semester and goes Monday through Thursday. He pretty much goes from work to class these days.

This first week back to school has really readjusted our schedule. It seems the second we do see each other there is way too much to do around the house or with school to really spend quality time together. I hope we are able to stay sane this semester!!!

I have tons of reading to do still for both of my classes, but right now looking around at my house, I think it is best to 'reset the chaos' that has occurred.

Speaking of Chaos...I don't think I have mentioned it in here yet, but we added to our family last month!!! We have 2 young parakeets, their names are Chaos and Calamity. They are so sweet. They are "Olivia's birds" but really family pets since we all were dying to have a pet. We rent so we are not able to have a dog or a cat, which realizing now isn't a bad thing since we have such busy schedules!
Above: Calamity (right) and Chaos (left). Their names suit them very well. They are very young right now so we are not completely sure of their sex....but we think Calamity is female and Chaos, wonder their names fit them so well right???

On a closing note....I am looking for a new name to better suit my blog. Since starting this blog, I feel I don't really have a connection with the blog name I selected. Any ideas for a new blog name would be appreciated! :)


  1. I don't think you should change the name of your blog. Every part of life you take "one step at a time" to achieve whatever it is you are looking for.

    Sounds like life is going great for you! That is awesome! Good luck to you guys in school and congrats on Olivia's potty training success!

  2. You have been busy! I have no help with the name. My name sucks.

  3. Hey girl, life's busy for you without a doubt!!! I am no help with a different name for your blog, sorry.

  4. how cute are those little birdies!!!!

  5. The birds are cute.

    Have a good weekend.

  6. Aww...I remember how crazy it is when college classes start.

    Good luck this semester/quarter?

    I think your birds are beautiful. I love that periwinkle blue color.

    As for your blog name...ummm....I'll have to give it some thought. :)


  7. Cute parakeets. Yay for Olivia being out of pull-ups completely! Hard to believe she'll be 4 soon! I also like your name...I think it's fitting. You need to take more pics! I miss seeing you and Miss O and we need to hear more about your b/f! :)

  8. Glad to hear an update girly!

    Also glad that you started school up again, and I totally feel you on all the classes being filled up so quickly. I registered early and still have to go try and add three classes in person!

    Our school is overflowing with new students, yet they cut 10% of our classes from what I've heard!!

    I know the schedule will be hectic for a bit, but this semester will be done before you know it!
