Monday, my first day at my new job, we went to lunch at Leeann Chin. I didn’t think a thing of it all until I read my fortune…

Your future is whatever you make of it, so make it a good one.

Great. So I’m sitting at lunch on my first day and now I have this to think about. I’m going to take this as a reminder to stay positive no matter what I do.Β This week has been such an emotional rollercoaster. I have already learned a lot and am exhausted. TGIF (tomorrow)!!




I’m not a writer but this is my 35 post. That means I have written for over one month. Not long posts, just short posts everyday mixed with posts mostly taken up by pictures. For me it has been a lot. I would say I am hitting some sort of wall right about now. Maybe I need to post fewer entries a week. I’m not sure. I love my blog and reading others as well. There are some really amazing writers out there. Maybe once I get my new camera I will be able to post more photography related posts giving me a topic and fewer typed words.

Only 2 more days of work (training) this week. Things seem to be going pretty well. Next week will be good since I will start working on my own. I just want this weekend to be here so I can find out what Craig has planned for my birthday!

Day 1 Done


Finished my first day at my new job today. I think it’s going to go really well. This week will be all training which is good. I got a pretty good feel for the company and what I will be doing daily. Hopefully by the end of the week I will be really comfortable there!

I am so exhausted though! I am honestly about ready to fall asleep. This is going to be a long week of learning but it will all pay off in the end. My birthday is this weekend so there is something to look forward to! Craig has plans for us on Saturday night but he is keeping it a secret from me. I have been trying to get him to slip up and tell me but have no luck. He has been keeping it from me for over 2 months!! He says not to worry. I’m sure it will be something fun πŸ™‚

Last night was the series finale for Desperate Housewives. I am still 2 episodes behind. I need to catch up so I can watch the finale. I can’t believe it’s over. I’m going to try and squeeze one in tonight before I fall asleep!

Not Ashamed


I’m not ashamed. It’s Saturday night and I am home getting ready for bed and I couldn’t be happier. Craig left for work at 9pm and I am settling in for a relaxing night. We stopped at Best Buy tonight to check out some cameras. My birthday is one week from today and I’m thinking of purchasing new camera for myself. I was looking at getting a Canon but the gentleman at Best Buy also showed me some great Sony cameras. I am not very camera savvy so I need to check some reviews online before purchasing. So tonight I plan on doing a little camera shopping online and possibly finishing up the last 100 pages of Mockingjay. Chances are I will only be able to get through a few pages before falling asleep mid-sentence.

Today was my last day of work before I start my new job on Monday. It was so hard saying goodbye to everyone but I plan on stopping in to say hi soon!! Everyone was so sweet today and I will truly miss working there. After work today Craig and I went to a local coffee shop to watch my friend Amy perform some of her songs. I want to give a huge shout out to her for doing such an amazing job! It was her first live performance as dRea. She puts so much emotion and hard work into her music and I couldn’t be prouder. Please check her out! If you like her online you will love her live!

Wacky Work Week


It was weird being back at work today after having 3 days off. It took me a little while to get back into the swing of things. Check my email, read any notes, etc. Maybe it was more difficult knowing that I only have 4 days left. I feel like there is still so much work to be done but I guess that is for me to pass on to others.

Also, since I am used to working a retail schedule and next week I start regular business hours I am trying to squeeze in the little things I like to do on weekdays. Get my oil changed, haircut, taking Gus to the dog park, to name a few. I just have to remind myself that there will still be plenty of time for all that.

With that being said I finish up work on Saturday, have Mother’s Day off, and start the new job Monday morning! Luckily there won’t be too much time to stress because it is all going to happen very fast!

Spa Day


Today is my 3rd day off from work! I have really enjoyed the time off. Tomorrow I go back for a 4 day run and then I start my new job on Monday! It will be very hard to say good-bye but that is something to worry about later.

My mom, Sara, my brother’s girlfriend and I are going to the spa tonight! We are going to have some girl time and get massages. I am really excited! It will be the perfect end to my mini vacation.

I have to go to the dentist today. Yuck! I’m not a huge fan of the dentist but it’s time for a cleaning. After it’s all done my teeth always feel so good it’s just during that I don’t like. Since I am home visiting my parents now is the time to squeeze in an appointment.

After the dentist I am going to lunch with my dad and then shopping with my mom until spa time! Can’t wait! It should make for a great day! πŸ™‚

Cinqo de Mayo!


Today is Cinqo de Mayo as everyone knows. I just got home from work and I’m not sure what I am going to do the rest of the night. Maybe I’ll have a margarita.

Next week is my last week of work until I start my new job. I had to do some schedule changes with a few coworkers next week so it turns out I have the next 3 days off!! I’m not sure what I am going to do with all my free time but I’m very excited.

Right now I am watching the Kentucky Derby. I can’t say that I have ever watched this before but I am very intrigued. Ever since watching the movie Secretariat I have been more interested in horse racing. I mean, I don’t know the first thing about horse racing but it’s still fun to watch everyone get excited.

I’m waiting for Craig to get home from Cabela’s so we can make some plans for tonight. Last night was girls night so I haven’t seen him since yesterday morning. We all had a really good time last night though. We went to dinner and then just hung out together which is always nice πŸ™‚
