Getting to Know you...

24

Re: Getting to Know you...

  • KimB,
    Adventure traveling sounds fun but I agree that something more relaxing may be best for the honeymoon! How often do you get to see your FI? How much longer do you have to go for your degree? That is awesome that you are in bio PhD programs! I loved bio in college haha. What do you want to do when you are done?
    I am a registered nurse and I specialize in child/adolescent psychiatry. I love it. I plan on going back to school to be a nurse practioner in a few years. My FI is a sales rep for Grainger. He likes it but will want to move on eventually. He works in northern MA and I work in southern NH and we do not live together yet :(
    We get to see each other like 2/week but hopefully by this fall we will be in the process of buying a house!

    Tell Us Something Interesting About Yourself: I see there are some runners on this board. I would qualify as a " former runner " I guess, LOL. I have completed 4 Half Marathons (last one was in 2008) numerous 5K's and 10K's. I started having trouble with my knee, then got off track and never got back to where I was before. I do still run the Turkey Trot every year (its our family tradition) but I really wish I could get myself in gear. I have recently started back on my treadmill in preparation to lose some weight for this wedding. I am glad to see so many ladies who run on this board. Hopefully you all will be motivation for me to stick to it and I am sure my bridal figure will appreciate it !
