Since April is Occupational Therapy month, I just wanted to share some awesome videos that show just what I am going to school for since most of you probably don't know much about OT! Occupational therapy is pretty much the best profession in the world!:)

Oh, this picture.  Thomas found it, and we can't stop cracking up every time we look at it!!

I love every bit of time spent with my hubby!  We've been watching lots of Disney movies (such as Brave), enjoying this weather and taking evening walks, and whipping up some good food.  Like this deliciousness that took us back to our college days.  YUM! :)

Life has been a little crazy lately, but I know God has some very good things in store!

I only have TWO more days of classes, and then it's exam time!  This was my last semester of classes, and I couldn't be more excited about it!  I'm even more excited to start my fieldwork rotations at the end of May!  This time has just flown by, and I'm sure graduation in December will be here before I know it!

Pretty soon I'll be commuting about an hour away for my fieldwork for six months, which means lots of time spent in the car.  Does anyone have suggestions of good talks or series I could get to listen to in the car?

I'm not sure what we're going to do this weekend yet.  We were planning on running a half marathon, but it unfortunately got cancelled.  I've been wanting to surprise Thomas by taking him on a certain date, but the weather hasn't been nice enough to do so.  This might just be the weekend!

  1. Run a ten miler, just the two of you and then shower and go out to eat and you can splurge because of all the calories you just blasted!

    Ok, maybe that's just my idea of a dream date :)

    That cheesy bread looks amazing and I want it.

  2. I am a big old history nerd, so I LOVED the audio lecture series of April 1865: The Month that Saved America, by Jay Winik. I cannot recommend it enough - I have actually listened to it several time, it is great.

  6. That rap! Love it. Christopher West has some really good TOB talks; I haven't heard all of them, but I remember one called "Woman: God's Masterpiece" being really good. I have a long commute, too, and I try to turn off the music at least a few days a week to pray the rosary or just have some silence. Have a good weekend!!

  7. #5 - woo-hoo - the end is in sight!! There's nothing better than doing what you LOVE! :)

    #6 - Have you listened to the talks by Katrina Zeno called the Genius of Women? It's based on the theology of the body. They are excellent.

  8. If you google Free for Catholics, you can get a bunch of cd's mailed to you for a dollar each (or more if you choose to donate more). We got some for our NY trip and they were great!

    After seeing your picture, I will have to try Gumby's!

  10. Fr. John Riccardo has a great series of podcasts on all sorts of topics. I feel you on that commute! I used to commute 1 1/4 hours per way but it was nice to have time to pray and think.

  12. The Catholic campus ministry program at St. Mary's at Texas A&M has some great podcasts that are free to listen to: Aggie Catholic Media! They are filled with Speaker Series talks and simple homilies from the weekend - I highly recommend them :)

  14. That cheesy bread does look yummy! I'd love the recipe if you have one. Lucia and I watched the first two videos and she loved the one with George.

    As for something to listen to in the car, my husband has the New Testament on audio and LOVES it! He tells everyone about it. He heard about this particular one through EWTN.

  15. I listen to Relevant Radio (talk radio with a Catholic spin) They usually have interesting guests! You can listen on the radio if you are lucky enough to live in a city that picks up the station, or using their app.
