Who doesn't love pie?

A few weeks ago Dylan mentioned to me that I had never made him a pie. Well, I mean....why should I have? I make cookies and cake and bars and all sorts of things, but never a pie. Alas, I decided today was my pie day. I looked up recipes and went to the grocery store. I had to buy a pastry cutter and the fruit for the filling. Did I mention that I wanted to make everything from scratch? A little bit over-zealous, eh?

Well, the pictures below will narrate

Dylan approved!!!

Last Night's Run

Yesterday was a fun day. I did not have to volunteer for my class, so Dylan took a day off from his internship. We ran around and had a lot of fun. As the night went on, we kept saying that we couldn't forget to go on our jog that night. Well, we kinda put it off until the last minute. So, it had begun to rain, but we were determined. We put on our rain jackets and went out for a jog! It was so much fun and we felt so stinkin tough! When we got home we were sopping wet, but we felt great. I felt like I could have fun a marathon last night. haha.

Today is my last day of my volunteering clinicals. I start my externship on Monday. I found out I will be working nights, so I'm pretty worried. I just don't know how to get started. We'll just see.

Rainy Day Un-Blues

For a class I took this semester, Health Care Missions and Christian Service, we are required to do 90 hours of mission work or community service that will count as clinical hours for nursing school. I had the choice of spending $3500 and going to Honduras or staying in OKC and doing community service during the 1st intersession of class. Needless to say, I stayed home. So, I've been volunteering lots and lots over the past two weeks.

I've really enjoyed the work we've done so far (a Christian service center and a community health clinic), but today was the day I was dreading the most. We were going to an Adult Day Care. Well, I was really wrong. Today was a great experience. I don't want to say much, but it was really awesome. Definitely not as bad as I thought it was going to be.

It has rained and stormed all day! So, I can't go on my run tonight...bummer.

Tonight Dylan and I are staying in. We ordered pizza and are going to be lazy together while it's stormy outside!

Am I a real blogger?

So this day marks an emotional, yet exciting day for me in the internet world. I'm starting a blog. I guess I can't say no to that Catie character. It's taken me all day to mess with it and get it what I want it to look like.

You might notice my twitter updates on the right. So, that's pretty cool. Right?

Well---I always like lists, so I'll start off with one about what's going on lately in my life.

1. Volunteering all day everyday for a Missions Class. More to come about that.
2. Jogging with my Nike + setup. Love it!
3. Hanging with Dylan when he gets home from his internship at VI.
4. Hitting up the Red Box just about 3 times a week.
5. Anxiously awaiting my best friend's return to the great state of Oklahoma!
6. Preparing for my externship in
the ICU that starts in May.

That's pretty much just the basics for now. How about a picture? Everyone loves that! The one on the left is to remind us of the old days....before Catie and I were married women!
