That is my RN license number!
On Thursday, October 8th I went to take my state board licensing exam to officially become an RN! The next morning I found my name on the Arizona State Board of Nursing website with a license number! I am beyond excited and am so grateful to all those who helped me to accomplish this goal...let's say, 17 1/2 yrs in the making! :) A special thanks to my sweetheart who is ALWAYS by my side and is even willing to listen to my lectures (hilarious lady with a huge southern drawl) with me during our long road trip to and from Utah! And for the sweet blessing he gave me the night before my exam...I have never been so calm going into a test. Thank you sweetie for being such a righteous priesthood holder. And I know it is through my Father in Heaven's blessings that I was able to be so calm and pass this difficult exam. I love living the gospel and seeing how Heavenly Father pours his blessings upon me when I am doing what is right!
My sweetie gave me those beautiful flowers and took me out to an extra yummy dinner to celebrate!
And speaking of blessings, this week was absolutely wonderful...on top of passing my exam, I got a call from the Mayo Clinic! I have an interview set up to enter their new grad program! I did my preceptorship there and their hospital is BEAUTIFUL and the nurses are so kind! It would be incredible to work there!

Once in a while we get her to show this side...like, when she's nominated for Homecoming Court!
But, no worries...she's still there, under all the makeup, sparkles, and tulle! :)
We love you Kel! You are gorgeous and have the best personality...no wonder you were nominated! Congrats on making it from the top 10 to the top 5!

We love cabin trips...and this was no exception!
For labor day we...
Ken's family has had this dirt bike for YEARS and
it still runs GREAT! We had a blast riding around the trees and chasing a DEER!
haha... it quickly ran away as it heard us coming!
Okay, okay... I needed a little help with the helmet... :)
...we also played horseshoes (don't think I've ever played in my life!)
Challenge: can you find the horseshoe??
...and finally topped off our weekend with a trip into town and to yummy Kendall's!

After relaxing and playing games (we are the proud winners of trivial pursuit...thanks to my hubby's history knowledge...I'll stick to the entertainment questions) for a bit we were off to the world's oldest RODEO!!
Who are those cute cowgirls?? :)
So impressive!!!Thanks Mom and Dad Wray for treating us to such a fun night (and to my first rodeo)!
The next morning we got dressed in our 4th of July best and headed out to the parade! It was a neat little parade! Afterwards we strolled the little tents they set up, had some yummy pizza, and bought some of the most delicious dip to make at home (that is my favorite tent to visit)!
And afterwards relaxed...
under BIG beautiful trees and gorgeous weather!
The evening ended with a beautiful fireworks show and yum-filled Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream!!
Thank you to everyone for a FANTASTIC FOURTH OF JULY!
