Favorite Things Friday

Favorite things Friday

It’s Friday! Thanks to the snow storm that hit Kentucky early this week I had the entire week off of school and work! Wahoo! Although, my professor’s did record over 14 hours of lecture and sent a paper and take home test for us to take. But still I could do it all in my PJ’s! The extra time off gave me the chance to catch up on some non-nursing related reading. Here’s some of my favorite reads from the week, enjoy!
