Who Loves Fall?!...This Girl!!!!

So it has been a while and Brittany and I are EXTREMELY guilty of not being consistent with posting. I plead being in classes, and I know that if Brittany were to plead anything she would plead working a crazy schedule! So anyway forgive us, and we are going to get better I promise :) Anyway since it is FINALLY September that can only mean one is FALL!!!! Fall is my absolute favorite season! I love the changing leaves, the crisp chill in the air, I love scarves, and gloves, and cute coats! My birthday is in the fall so that probably has something to do with the fact that fall is my favorite season lol. Anyway, I am so excited for fall because that means it is time for college football! I love college football It is a way that Tyler and I bond. Tyler could watch football all day and all night long and I enjoy snuggling on the couch playing with the iPad during games I don't particularly care about or screaming (I can get intense when I'm watching my favorite teams and it can get so loud in my apartment when Tyler and I are watching teams we care about lol) and cheering when I'm watching a team I care about. Anyway, this isn't supposed to be a post all about football, so I will change the subject lol. So this is going to be a short post for me, but I really just wanted to post, so that's ok. Anyway, follow us on Facebook and Twitter, and Facebook, Tweet or comment on the blog if you have a topic you want us to talk about!

Brittany's Back!

So, its been awile from Brittany eh?
I got a job! I am a bagger at a local chain of groceries stores! It is a good job, and I enjoy it a lot.
Not a lot of other things going on right now, I am trying to find a work, life balance. Its surprisingly crazy.
I don’t really have a lot to say. Life is good.
At work there are lots of pregnant people and surprisingly, its not triggering any kind of “Ts Moment” like it would in the past. So, maybe I have matured, or maybe I have realized  that not now doesn’t mean not ever.
Or maybe I had a good long look at my finances and realized there is no way I am ready for that in any way shape or form.
Yeah. That one. No really interesting books or other life events to report on. So Ill let y’all get back to real life.
Bye, and see ya soon

Summer Is Ending

Hey everybody! It has been a while huh?! Well I am back for a few days anyway. I have been working as a CA on campus still which I love. And training is getting ready to start this Thursday so things are crazy this week with preparing. This week I have cleaned the apartment entirely from top to bottom (which it despearately needed!). I have door decs and my bulletin board to get up tomorrow after my desk shift which will make for a very busy day, but a very good day. After a week and a half of training, school starts! I sound like a nerd saying that I am excited for classes to start, but remember, I have been spending a lot of time alone at the apartment. I bring my hubby lunch every day, which I love! I'm sad that once training starts I won't be able to do that anymore :( I'm looking forward to having something to do everyday and to have homework, I really love homework, and I love to learn. I have done my best this summer to plan my whole year out CA-wise. I have made flascards for every month that has what my bulletin board is going to be what my door decs are going to be, and my program ideas. I have cut out my door decs for every month up until December. That planning will hopefully allow me to not be stressed out this year. I am so excited to not be in the respiratory therapy program because that will allow me to be a better wife and CA this year. Anyway, I am off to do more training and schoo prep!

The beginning

Brittany Here! we thought we would start from the beginning and describe what TS is exactly, so here goes:
What is Turner's syndrome?  
Stay with me as I unleash the mysteries of the UNIVERSE.
Turner’s syndrome was discovered in the 30s by a doctor named Turner.  It is a chromosomal disorder. Having an XY chromosome pair makes you a boy, and having an XX pair makes you a girl.  Chromosomes hold DNA, which makes us who we are.
TS occurs when the second X chromosome is misshapen or missing completely
The symptoms and  TS include: shortness, infertility, lack of menstruation, webbed neck, puffy toes and fingers, a high pallet, High hair line and a deeply ingrained hatred of math. They also are good at reading and writing, but may not do so well in the social realm.  Motor skills may take longer to develop.
Girls with TS may be prone to NLD. This is Non Verbal Learning disorder, which has its own long set of symptoms. These include, problems with directions and social situations,

In middle and high school, the main issue may be that the lack of boobs, but later, the infertility may become a bigger issue.

An Ashley Update

Well, I finished my crazy last semester finally! I made it through mostly unscathed. Unfortunately I am no longer in the respiratory care program (it's a kinda long story so I won't bore you with the details). But I feel good about life though. I am going into Political Science now, and I know the program will be tough but I shouldn't go as insane as I did in the respiratory care program. And I will have more time for my CA job (oh yeah, I'm a CA again next year!), my hubby (we've  been married a year already! Saturday was our 1 year anniversary!), keeping up with housework, and of course, blogging! Our plan for this summer is to really get the blog rolling again, we both got lax during the school year.  Anyway, like I said, hopefully some very exciting things will be happening in the near future so look for that on the blog, our Facebook pages, and our Twitter page! Life has been a pretty amazing ride though lately. We moved almost a month ago into a new apartment on campus and that was a very stressful process. I luckily didn't have to start packing and cleaning until after finals last semester so that was good. But the moving process was bad! Ok, it wasn't so bad, I just hate moving with a passion! I don't mind the packing or the cleaning-in fact, packing and cleaning were very therapeutic after a stressful semester. I just didn't like moving in the heat, and then once we had moved everything to our new place, we had to unpack which took longer than moving things did! And of course I'm OCD and the chaos and the mess drove me insane. So I worked tirelessly (along with my amazing husband) to get the apartment unpacked and ready to be lived in that night (which we did). We have gotten to see a lot of family since we have moved in. I think every week since we have moved we have had family stay with us for a weekend or so. I love it, and I love seeing family, but I am so excited to have a break for a week and for the hubby and I to get to relax. Other than moving, not much has happened lately, other than our ONE YEAR anniversary! This has been the most amazing year and I am so excited for so many more to come! Anyway, be looking out for more and more exciting things coming up on the blog and on Facebook and Twitter pages! And Folow us if you don't already :)
