Me in a nutshell

Hi :) Thanks for checking out my Blog "The {Not So Secret} Lemne Life"
I'm Stephanie

I'm a twenty something year old
born in the good old 80's.
Ace of Base "The Sign" was my first favorite song
I have struggled with my weight my entire life.
I remember when I 'thought' I was fat, but I would die for the body now.
My family means a lot to me - without them I wouldn't be where I am today
I lost a cousin to Breast Cancer - she was only in her early 30's
I am a huge supporter of the Susan G. Komen RACE FOR THE CURE for Breast Cancer Research
I love kids (even more now that I have my own)
I enrolled in Nursing School right out of High School but had a little too much fun partying instead
I decided to hold off and work as a Nurses Aide first
I have had my fair share of wild and crazy days 
I went down to the club in our hotel in the Bahamas in my leopard nightgown.
I don't got no shame in my game
Wax Museum - Las Vegas, Nevada
I am outspoken but truthful and I don't have a problem telling anyone how I feel
I love the beach!
Outer Banks, North Carolina
I met the love of my life, my best friend, my soulmate where I worked
First date - ice skating
We are both huge Pittsburgh Steelers fans
I re-started Nursing School and graduated in December 2010.
I LOVE being a Nurse.
I have no problem telling a Doctor I think they are wrong, or advocating for the patient.
Luckily, where I work the nurses have a great relationship with the doctors.
Being a Nurse made me realize how precious life is.
I do not take any days for granted, and I speak openly about death
We all are going to end up dead at some point - to me, it's important to know what your loved ones would or would not want during the last moments of life.
I see people at one of the worst points of their life.
If I ever stop being emotional at work, I know I need a new profession.
I'm an Organ Donor! Are you?
My life took a turn when I got pregnant in 2011
Read all about my pregnancy HERE!
I loved every minute of it.
Here is one of my cupcake cakes from my Baby Shower
It says "Ten toes up, ten toes down, that's what you get for fooling around"
Everyone liked the quote on the cake - it was funny because I had my daughter out of wedlock and by surprise shit happens!!
My Daughter is my everything.
