Gravity Studio, Wedding Dress Shopping, and Travel Nurse Dinner

Happy Monday Funday! I had a pretty awesome weekend and Monday! On Friday, I had a STEMI Summit that ended up being really, really, really boring. I was bummed cause I was actually really looking forward to the conference because cardiology fascinates me! But the speakers that were there were really less than stellar and didn’t hold anybody’s attention. I decided to dip out at 4pm cause I couldn’t handle it anymore!

That night, Haley (my new “roommate”) and I went out to have dinner with a few other Atlanta based travel nurses. It was actually a lot of fun and one of the old nurses I used to work with while I was a tech was at dinner too.


We stayed out until 10:30 and I really felt like I was getting crazy! Is it sad that I don’t even know the last time I stayed out till 10:30? (Surely it wasn’t that long ago! I just can’t recall it. Right?) I was definitely ready for bed as soon as I got home though and went right to bed like the old lady that I am at heart.

Saturday morning I had to miss my favorite ClassPass workout, but it was worth it since it was Kassie’s wedding dress shopping day!!! Kassie and I have been best friends for over 14 years now (fun fact: Kassie threw me a surprise 15th birthday party) and I’m so excited to be in her wedding!


We were twinning accidentally.

Dress shopping was so much more fun when it was for somebody else! I could have watched her try on wedding dresses all day long! Her mom and her soon-to-be sister-in-law were there also (and Gina), and we facetimed her maid of honor while we were there.


We all headed to lunch at Olive Garden after Kassie decided on a dress (clearly #notthisdress). Kass, Gina, and I tried to find some bridesmaids dresses at the mall after but had no luck! I’m not sure why dresses have to be so ugly these days! None of them were flattering at all!

Saturday evening, Jon and I headed over to my parent’s house for dinner. I hadn’t seen them in two weeks and I like my weekly dinners with my mom and dad! My mom and I finished the night off with the cinnamon rolls I’ve been recommending!

Saturday night I took benadryl and crashed at 9:45 so I could get a full night of sleep before losing an hour of sleep before a day at work! I had a surprisingly great Sunday at work, which I was thankful for because my poor neighbor got killed the entire day so I was able to lend a hand all day long so she didn’t drown! I was so excited to head out of work into daylight! I’m pretty sure that daylight saving is my favorite time of the year! After work, Jon and I had a chill night at home relaxing!

Jon was called off work this morning. It couldn’t have happened on a better day because he has been sick all weekend and has been exhausted! I still crawled out of bed somewhat early for Gravity. This is definitely up there with my top ClassPass classes! I did a poor review the other day, but I realized today that the machines we use are total gym machines. I love them! If the power tower wasn’t $5,300, I would totally buy one. You can get an awesome full body strength workout on that thing. I really enjoyed the class today and definitely felt the burn! We did legs too so I was happy to get in a good leg workout, even though my knees just aren’t what they used to be!

Jon and I ate some breakfast when I got home and then headed to drop my car off for an oil change. We decided to grab some coffee and groceries and look at a few more Jeeps (welcome to our life). Although it’s cloudy, the weather is fantastic today! I think we may head out for a short walk before The Bachelor finale tonight! I’d actually like to go for a run, but I want to spend time with Jon and he definitely won’t go running with me while he’s sick!

Have a good night, everybody!

  1. It sounds like you had a great time! I hope you had a great walk and enjoyed the weather 🙂

  2. that traveling nurse

    I saw that top photo on FB’s travel nurse group page and thought you looked familiar and then I kinda remembered you were saying that you were going to dinner with a group of travel nurses in Atlanta. Small world. 🙂

  3. Looks like you guys had a great time at dinner! I don’t remember the last time I was out until 10:30 either and I’d love to go out one day honestly :). It would be hard with my old lady bedtime and wake up time though. Hope Kassie found a cool dress.

    • I definitely do enjoy nights out on occasion, but it’s so rare because I REALLY have to prepare for things like that these days! And my next day has to be a day off!

  4. Haha yeah, a lot of the bridesmaids dresses in the shops now a days aren’t that flattering. And if you find a flattering design, the colors and/or materials aren’t. But then you look online and a lot of dresses look like nice bridesmaid dresses. It is fun shopping for a wedding when you’re a bridesmaid, unless the bride doesn’t make you break the bank haha.

    One my friends has a total gym, he never uses it haha. I’m such a free weight mostly/believer girl, it would be a waste for me too. For the average person though and especially someone with a tight living space, a total gym would work great for them, save them money too.

    • I’m usually totally a free weight type of girl! I LOVE my free weights and never use machines at the gym! But the total body gym has me so sore today and it was a GREAT workout! I don’t know that I would have liked it as much if I didn’t experience a class since I got to see how much stuff you can really do on that thing! Kassie is DEFINITELY not going to make us break the bank for her wedding, which is definitely much appreciated! I’m hoping we can find a decent dress!
