Road Trip and a Bit of GREAT News

 First off I have some WONDERFUL/AMAZING/FABULOUS/GREAT/LIFE CHANGING news to share with you all!! You may have seen it on Facebook but I'm just to excited not to share it with everyone on here too! I GOT ACCEPTED INTO NURSING SCHOOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The past year I took college classes required to get into LPN school but still had to apply for it for this fall. I will start in August. I AM BEYOND EXCITED!!!!!! Hence all the capital letters :) :) :) But hey this is a big deal for me and a big piece of my future falling into place! Plus it is a little competitive to get in.

So I don't have a favorite finds Friday post ready. We left early this morning to go to Illinois to my cousins wedding. We are now at our hotel room and I thought I'd share some of my pictures from along the way. We stopped in St Louis and ate at Fritz's Restaurant. They bottle their own pop. You could get an endless mug and try all the flavors of pop they had on draft. I had the cream soda and black cherry. Then the burger I got had chili, cheese, and onion straws on it. It was amazing!!

Anyway here are some of my pictures from our 6 hour drive to Illinois.

  3. Field of "flowers" they look like goldenrod to me! It's Nebraska's state flower! And we've got a TON of wheat around us. We actually still harvest it :)

    1. I know there were fields that had goldenrod because my aunt said that some of the farmers couldn't harvest because of the drought and so the fields got infested with goldenrod pretty bad.
