I'm Back!!!

So I warned you when I started this blog that I didn't know how often it would be updated. Well, here it is almost 2 months later, and I am finally writing again! Not sure if I have any readers, but if you are still out there, especially after this long hiatus, thank you!!! So this is what has been going on in my life over the past 2 months...

First and foremost, I graduated from The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio with a Doctor of Physical Therapy!

Alison, Mom, Drew and Me at the Banquet the night before graduation.

So excited that my family drove all the way to San Antonio to be there for my special day!

I presented my 3 years worth of research over the question: In people with Alzheimer's Disease, can aerobic exercise decrease the rate of decline in cognition or actually improve cognition when compared to no exercise?

I went on a 4 night cruise to Cozumel with 3 of the best friends anyone could ask for. I don't think I could have made it through PT school without these girls!

I went to a gorgeous wedding of another good friend from PT school in Columbus, TX

We moved to a new house in College Station (sorry, no picture for that). I am so happy to be back in this town, it will always hold a special place in my heart!!!

And last, but certainly not least, I've been studying for the National PT Board Exam, that I have to pass before I can start my job that I wrote about in the last post. I'm hoping to take it at the end of June/beginning of July, but I'm not sure if I will be ready by then....I guess we will see


  1. Congratulations!! So happy for you! Steven and I will have to come see you guys in College Station soon.

  2. So very proud of you Ashlea! Looks like everything is working out great for you and yes, I am still following your blog! Seems like most of us have been too busy to write much lately.

  3. Yes, WE are still out here!! : ) Great pics! I miss you!! Taking "the test" so soon (I'm tired of seeing that girl on the cover of scorebuilders...)?? I know you will do great! I, on the other hand, am having a very hard time getting prepared.. the reason I see that girl so much is because I never open the book! :( Anyway, I hope you are doing well!! Don't forget about us little people in SA (ok, you can forget about them..but don't forget about me!) :) So glad you finally get to actually live with your husband again! :) Say hi to Drew! Later gator!

  4. I feel like one of your family members is missing in those pictures...

  5. Thanks for still reading everyone! Jess - you are too sweet (and funny)! Of course I won't forget you, how could I? We and 37 others spent countless hours together for 3 years, not something I will soon forget =). Good luck studying, I know you will do great!

    Lincoln - at least she is in all the state baseball championship pics =)
