Girls Night Out

It was a FUN girls night out last night.  Now don't feel sorry for Carl and the boys - they had a "boys night in" and grilled steaks and watched movies. The main purpose of the evening was to celebrate Monika's graduation from nursing school.  She has wanted to be a nurse for so long and decided to to go back to school three years ago and we are all so proud of her!  We all went to the movies and saw Letters to Juliet (what a good chick flick) and then went to Applebees.  Since Monika missed her pinning ceremony, Laura (a nurse and nursing teacher), pinned her.  Monika tells me that this is a big deal for nurses.  From all the laughter and good conversation, I would say that everyone had a great time.  Here's a picture of Monika and her pin.

Can I tell you that I had a great day yesterday?  Well, let me tell you that I did.  I don't know if it's because it didn't rain, or that I was able to spend some time with family and friends, or that I stayed home for part of the day and cleaned my house.  In the morning, Carl and went to Janna's house and she gave me some peonies.  I bought some last summer and they didn't come up this year - boo hoo :(  So it was Janna to the rescue!  She has some beautiful peonies at her house and she also gave me some cuttings.  Besides smelling absolutely lovely, aren't they also pretty?

Well, today is church, finish cleaning up the house, and then a graduation party.  I'm almost finished with teh bedroom redo and will post pictures soon.  Plus, I've found some great blogs that have given me new ideas for decorating my house.  Maybe I'll just "tweak" every room as I feel like I've had the same decorations out for years. 

Have a wonderful day everyone.

So happy for Monika! Love your new blog background. Ironically, it is very similar to some paper we just hung in our bathroom. :)
I am totally in love with peonies. Those colors are just gorgeous. Love you honey!
