The one where you wake up an hour early

So here it is at 4:40 am and I'm blogging.  Why you ask?  Because I'm SO excited to start today that I just had to share it with the world!?


I'd NEVER wake up in the 4 o'clock hour unless I have to.  And I mean REALLY have to!

OR unless I didn't KNOW that it was the 4 o'clock hour!

My cell phone has been going a little haywire lately and occasionally will tell me that is an hour ahead of the actual time.  Usually doesn't bother me.

Until this morning.

My alarm goes off at 5 am.  I get out of bed and do my normal morning routine.

I go downstairs to brew my coffee and make my breakfast shake.  And time is going really fast!

I step it into high gear to make sure that I leave on time...definitely don't want to be late today!

And just as I'm grabbing my keys, I notice that the stove says it's 4:35.  What!?  And then the microwave does too.  And then I check my phone (really, have I not learned!?)...and it too says 4.35.

Something in me says (screams) THIS CAN'T BE HAPPENING!  You're not really wide awake with hair and makeup done an entire hour before you have to leave!  And so I go upstairs to quadruple check the time.  In which Jon says in a half sleep/half alive voice "Wow, you got up extra early this morning!"

And that's when I wanted to scream.  Mostly b/c I truly value my sleep.  I am much nicer when I get good sleep.  And waking up at 4 am instead of 5 can tend to be a game changer.

Oh I'm remembering all those good ole days of waking up for clinicals at 3:45 am...yeah it wasn't pretty!

So there ya have it.  The first day where you wake up and get totally ready for new job an entire hour too early.  At least it wasn't an entire hour too late!

And just because I have time...I leave you with a photo of myself on my first day of my first APN job!
*Skirt: Armani Exchange; Shirt: Elle (both thrifted of course!)- prob cost me about $5 this entire outfit did!


  1. I am going to give you the real deal... She did in fact scream! She must have thought it was in her head, but let me tell you it wasn't. She ruined my beauty sleep and you know I need it in order to keep up with her... :b

  2. You look amazing! Congrats on the new job...you have been working so hard to achieve such an amazing reward! I love that you got that whole outfit for $5 btw ;)
