Day Seven

Day Seven: Four things you're looking forward to.

Today's topic was supposed to be four turn-ons, but since I'm married to the perfect man and am no longer interested in anyone other than Ryan (well, maybe Bruce Willis), I thought this would be more appropriate.

1. Mini Medical School - Guess what...I was accepted to medical school! Yay me! No really, everyone that applies (and pays tuition) is accepted, so I can't claim to be some kind of doctor/lawyer extraordinaire. St. Louis's own Washington University Medical School offers an 8-week "Mini-Med School" course for regular people. Mini-Medical School provides savvy healthcare consumers with the latest information on medical research, nutrition, genetics, diseases and treatment options. I'm taking Mini-Med School I, which meets for 2 hours every Tuesday night and teaches operating room protocol and practice surgical techniques, offers lectures on topics such as Alzheimer's, allergies, diabetes, skin conditions, Gastroenterology, pneumonia and heart attacks. We get to tour the Washington University School of Medicine Genome Sequencing Center and the ER. How cool! And at the end of 8 weeks, I'll graduate! You can call me Dr. Sara. :)

2. Bien Living Master Bedroom Make-Over - Remember that Long Distance Design session I won from OMG I'm a Mom? Well, it's finally time I got my act together and made it happen. I finally figured out what I want to do with our bedroom. FINALLY. It's only taken me 3.75 years. I bought bedroom furniture last week! (Holy moly bedroom furniture is expensive.) I figured out what colors I wanted to do the room in (surprise, they're not the same as the grey/yellow that I thought I wanted to do here). And this morning I sent Kristin at Bien Living my ideas and the "before" pictures of our bedroom. This is finally going to happen! Now, who wants to come over next weekend and help me paint?

3. Camping - Ryan and I are packing up the canoe, the dog and the pick-up truck and heading down to the river this weekend to float/camp. The weather is absolutely perfect - 70s during the day and cool 50s at night. I can't wait to sit around the campfire and make S'mores and listen to the water without another living soul anywhere around. Ryan will spend the days fishing, I'll read and relax and Mally will get completely covered in burrs and sticks and mud. Perfect weekend.

4. Birth Announcements - Next week my friend Jessica and I are going to design her birth announcements! I'm so excited about this! She's having a baby girl in October, so I get to use my love of paper products (oh how I love cardstock and envelope liners), pink bows, pictures and babies to help her make/design some adorable birth announcements. I'm accepting ideas if you have any. Can't wait.

Your turn! What are you looking forward to?


  1. I am so intrigued by the mini-med school. What a great idea. So going to check that out.

    I'm looking forward to Christmas in England and New Year's in Paris with my husband, mom and brother. Only 84 more days!

  2. Doctor AND a Lawyer?? Your parents must be beside themselves. LOL! Seriously girl, when do you find the time to blog & tweet?! LOL

    Sorry I didn't get a chance to send you bedroom paint color pics but our camera died. :( Can't wait to see what you're going to do!!!

  3. Mini med school sounds so cool! I would love that, minus the commute across the country it would require.

  4. I want to go to mini-med school! That is a great program!! I am going to look for one in Atlanta!

    Ths husband and I are going to pick a weekend for camping soon!! Y'all have fun!!

  5. That mini-med school thing sounds awesome! Really practical stuff to know. You are such an overachiever! :) And the bedroom makeover will be amazing! I am dying to see what you do in there...Yay! i need new ideas. :)

  6. Yeah! I'm so excited about the announcements! They are clearly awesome already. :) Camping sounds delightful too. This weather is PERFECT for it - have fun! Scrappy says to tell Mally to eat some dirt and roll around in something disgusting for her.

  7. This mini-medical school thing sounds AMAZING! :)
