Thursday things

So, i am still on night float- still working a lot, sleeping a little, and eating when i can.

Oh yeah, and i do some baking-
Here are some pink champagne cupcakes i made in honor of one of my residents, Tina, who found out she is having a girl!  :)
They are delish- and here is the recipe

I will say one thing- being on nights and staying up all night makes you slightly delusional after a while.  My residents and i have had some really entertaining conversations- and they really remind me of 20 questions.  We have touched on if we would ever use psychics/horoscopes, do we believe in ghosts,  favorite movies/food/presents/etc, and tons more (including some very risque topics....come on, it is me.  do you expect less?).  Some of the conversations have been so fun that even though nothing is going on, i have been sitting at work chatting.  What is up with that?
One of my residents and i are VERY SIMILAR- come to find out we are both Capricorns.

I don't ever read horoscopes but this is so true it is scary!
So to summarize- a Capricorn, the tenth sign of the zodiac, is all about hard work (yep). Those born under this sign are more than happy to put in a full day at the office, realizing that it will likely take a lot of those days to get to the top (again- yep). That's no problem, since Capricorns are both ambitious and determined: they will get there.Capricorns are practical as well, taking things one step at a time and being as realistic and pragmatic as possible. The Capricorn-born are extremely dedicated to their goals, almost to the point of stubbornness (stubborn...hahaha!).

PS- did you like how the website pic has a eHarmony link on the bottom?  Taylor is promising me that she will be signing me up for eHarmony or next year if i haven't dated anyone by then.
Don't you love how grown up my child is?

And of course, no blog is complete without a picture of my babies.
They are saying good morning!

Everyone have a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend.  Please remember why we celebrate the weekend in the first place!  And just a fun fact that i will share with you that i mentioned in my Duke Senior Thesis: Memorial Day was formerly known as Decoration Day, it originated after the Civil War to commemorate the fallen Union soldiers of the Civil War. (Southern ladies organizations and southern schoolchildren had decorated Confederate graves in Richmond and other cities during the Civil War, but each region had its own date)
