Just a treat for myself.

One of the sweet perks of being back to work, 
is being back to paid. 

Now, while I'm *REALLY* happy to be able to contribute monetarily, 
both to the household and to treating Mike to dinners, gifts and surprises, 
I'm in the mood to treat myself a bit. 

Moving so far from home, 
setting up a new home, 
applying to a job that I loved,
I think I get to treat myself to a lil' something. 


So, I want to get myself a bit of a treat. 
These are things I've been oogling for a veeeeeeery long time. 
Investments, but, investments I cant get my mind off of.

Working Woman pt 2


So, I've officially been at work for a week now. 
I think I'm going to be pretty happy here.

I've sat on some meetings, met some of my coworkers and finally figured out a path to my cubicle without getting lost. So I call the first week a success. 

Wanna see some shots of my first week at work?
Nervous on my first day..to say the least. 
making my desk seem more..homely
I'm finding a balance between coffee and water.
 I'm also having to beef up my wardrobe a bit. 
My last position was in a college environment, so jeans and beer tshirts were normal and acceptable. 
Not so much anymore. 
So, I've been on the hunt for more business casual clothing. 
Looks like I'll have to care when JCrew, Gap, and Nordstrom have their sales this year. 

And, THAT, my friends is the life of this working woman.

Working Woman

Is it normal to be exhausted every night?

Cause, I've been dying lately. (as in this week)
and going to bed after 10pm seems terrifying.

I survived!

Hi Loves, 
I made it through my first day. 
I survived, I even liked it a lot, 
I also crashed last night at 9. 
So, while I had plans to update this little ditty. 
It'll have to wait til tonight. 

I promise to drink more coffee today

March has a lot happening. 
I start work on Monday. 
I'm flying to Raleigh for a day, then flying back with my parents. 
Then Mike's parents are coming in. (The In-Laws meet!)
It's our 3 year dateaversary,
and our wedding -1aversary.
(Fun fact. Our parents will get to see our venue, together, 
1 year before our wedding date..
and also on our 3 year anniversary. SO cool)

It's gonna be a big month.
I promise to be around more.
I was just so stressed about the job,
(I really wanted it)
that I got a little lowenergy and freaked myself out.

Maybe you'll even get to see the Europe pics this month..
oooOOOOOooooo ;)
