Be My Valentine

Be My Valentine

Amidst all the work behind our Save the Date we also had our last Valentine’s Day together before we get married.  I am so excited to buy those cheesy cards with the script writing and foil embellishments that say HUSBAND.  It reminds me of my own parents who have been such an influence on me … Continue reading

Baby Fever

Baby Fever

This is no surprise to anyone.  I’ve had baby fever since I was…well for a long time.  I warned Chris when he first met me that I will wave to babies in restaurants and I talk about them all the time.  I didn’t want to scare him off from the beginning because he thought I wanted … Continue reading

“So Don’t You Worry About Me”

“So Don’t You Worry About Me”

Maybe the past few weeks have been a little hectic.  I am gone 11 hours a day so trying to plan a wedding is almost impossible… almost.  Luckily Chris is a master researcher and spreadsheet maker and my mom is fantastic at making phone calls.  I am very excited to do the fun stuff like … Continue reading

Eat, Sleep (work) and Get Married

Eat, Sleep (work) and Get Married

Mele Kalikimaka: A Christmas Post

Being away from home at Christmas can be a difficult time.  But no matter if you are in the same room or on the other side of the planet, you can make it memorable and special.   Just when I started to get sad or miss hot chocolate next to a fire I would remember … Continue reading

Sugar Mamma

Sugar Mamma

I know I am a little late in saying this…buuut… I got a JOB!  I started last Tuesday and I am loving it so far.  I started at the most wonderful time of the year… baked goods, Christmas decorations, the works.  Some of you know that I am pre-diabetic so sugar is a big no-no … Continue reading

Crazy/Beautiful

Crazy/Beautiful

Some of you know the state I was in when I left my last job.  Certain circumstances led me to feel very broken down when I left.  The best way to describe it is when you are running and you hit that point of exhaustion where you can’t run any more, but you are forced … Continue reading

For the Love of Job

As someone who previously spent my days in marketing for a recruitment newspaper and job board, I know a lot about the process that is job hunting.  I helped provide resources to job seekers, sent jobs to people via social media, proofed cover letters and resumes, read everything I could on the job market; what … Continue reading
