Nothing too exciting happening here…my last night at work was perfectly fine…only one patient! In fact we had 4 patients and 3 nurses…QUITE the nurse to patient ratio…I’m seriously surprised they did not float one of us…I’m not complaining!
Enjoy my favorites from around the web this week…
Favorite chocolate fix…Black Bottom Cheesecake Brownies. The combination of chocolate and cheesecake can never be wrong! I love that everything is from scratch.

Favorite inspirational post…9 Lessons I’m Glad Life Taught Me. What have the following words taught you about life?? Here’s my thoughts…
TIME–There is only so much time in a day…choose wisely how you will spend it. Time will heal most everything. Time passes faster than you will ever think…remember that the next time you wish time away.
LOVE–Love is a wonderful thing, to have someone love you for just you is the safest feeling you can ever feel. Love does not look only one way. Love is expressed best with a hug.
MEANING–Things have different meaning to different people, focus on what things mean to you.
JUDGMENT–Don’t judge another person unless you have walked in their shoes. It’s always easier to judge than to try and understand.
CONFUSION–Most people do not have it all “together.” We are all learning as we go about our daily lives. Don’t be afraid to ask for clarification!
WEALTH–There are many different kinds of wealth. Having monetary wealth will not protect you from heartache in this world.
REGRET–Take every chance you can as regret can ruin your present moment. It’s easy to glorify the past so choose to live in the present.
RESENTMENT–Speak the truth. Don’t let other people take advantage of you. Don’t compare yourself to others. It’s all too easy to feel resentment if you don’t follow these rules.
ADVERSITY–Life is difficult, of that there is no doubt. But you have the ability to change things you don’t like…work hard and then celebrate even harder!
Favorite kitchen technique…Simple Microwave Jam. I’ve never heard of this before but it seems SO simple…I can’t wait to try it this summer with fresh strawberries and blueberries!

Favorite copy-cat recipe…Olive Garden’s Lemon Cream Cake…oh yeah! I’m making this for Easter so HOPEFULLY it is as good as the original!
