One of those days...

Another day has almost come and gone.
Can't imagine, what else could go wrong.
Sometimes I'd like to hide away somewhere and lock the door,
A single battle lost, but not the war.

Cuz tomorrow's another day, and I'm thirsty anyway,
So bring on the rain.

It's almost like the hard times circle round.
A couple drops, then they all start coming down.
Well I might feel defeated, and I might hang my head,
I might be barely breathing but I'm not dead, no.

Cuz tomorrow's another day, and I'm thirsty anyway,
So bring on the rain...

I'm in Love

I had a day off last week so I decided to get some pictures done of the girls. My friend Cathi did them for us, and my girls were being SO UNBELIEVABLY ROTTEN!! We were late getting there, Taylen was being a brat, Ryah was whiny...I pretty much knew we weren't going to get any good shots. Boy was I wrong! Cathi took some BEAUTIFUL pictures...and I just want to put all of them up in my house!! I'm putting tons in this post right now, because I just can't decide... I am so thankful for these beautiful girls in my life, and for these beautiful pictures that I'll always have to look back on. Thanks, Cathi! (Go check out her blog at Leave me some love about how cute my kids are :)

Master Nikki

So, I have officially been accepted to the Marriage and Family Therapy Master's program at Alliant International University!! WOHOO! The program is small (they accept 12-15 students each year) and starts the end of August. I am SO excited. I have no idea how in the heck I'm going to work full time, be a single mom, and go to grad school full time...but hey, it'll work out if it's supposed to, I guess. I really REALLY hope I can figure out a way to make this work, because I would love to get my Master's and start a small private practice...

And at the end of the two year program I can even be my own therapist! It just gets better and better...
