The Job.

So as I said in my last TODAY marks 3 months since I put my 2 week notice in at a job that I had for OVER 7 years! It was a definitely a bittersweet time. While it's hard to not be around the 2 girls that I really enjoyed working with, and it's tough to learn new things when I'm use to being the one who is teaching new workers... taking this new job, was the best decision for me! I have opportunities all the time to move up in this job, and I learn something everyday! The people I work with are kind, and patient and actually WANT to work there! At the end of July the whole company is going on a canoe trip!
I can see myself staying with this company for many years to come!

I'm back! (i hope!)

wow! Where has the time gone!? My last post was in April!? really? You can tell I got a "Big Girl" Job and I don't have time to blog at work now! I am going to try (I'm sure I've said this at least 5 times before....) to keep up with this, especially now that I don't get to see YOU Mama! And it's nice to get everything out and come back a few months from now and read this :)

I have SO much to type! Starting with my amazing new *BOYFRIEND* and new job! I'll have to start tomorrow, because it's almost midnight and my boyfriend and I just went for a 2 mile walk and this lady is pooped!

Can't wait to fill you in on what's been going on!

Post Secret

Good Morning friends! (and by that I mean you, Kris haha) I loooooove ! Every Sunday a new batch of secrets are put up for the world to see, and I've been able to relate to quite a few of them since I started reading post secret. But today, there was one that I could have written myself (minus the lamb) because I have been feeling this way for a while now. Here is the secret:

I've been feeling very "green" lately. (not as in I wanna save the world, but more like I don't have very many life experiences, niave might be a better word)

I'm not excactly sure how to go about fixing this feeling I have. I am trying to take chances, trying to try new things, but I get frustrated with myself because I am taking baby-steps instead of just diving into something new. I need to take more risks..I need to do more instead of thinking so much.

So my good friend Terri inspired me this morning!

I read her blog and it made me want to update mine!! I'm not sure how many people actually read this, but I like going back and reading through my memories :)

SO much is going on lately. I am having a hard time catching my breath!

I had the best Christmas this year! (pretty sure I say that every year!) Christmas is definitely a different experience since my brother and sister-in-law had Brylee :) My heart is just FULL of love for her :) My parents bought all of us plane tickets and hotel stays in Tampa this year! I cannot believe how blessed we are to have such generous parents.

We stayed for a whole week! We were able to go to the beach and get a little bit of sun AND go visit Elmo (Brylee's favorite!) at Busch Gardens!

I had an interview for a job in Ann Arbor when we got back from vacation. Unfortunately I did not get the job :( But it was a great experience.

However! I did pass 2 tests for the City of GR and I am eligible to be hired! I am on their "list" so hopefully something will come of that!

Cassie and I put together a fundraiser to help raise funds and awareness for the ALS Association and the Arthritis Foundation! I am just waiting to hear on a location and I'll post the website that I made for it!! I am so excited!! We are going to be hosting it on April 23rd :) Then just 5 (hopefully short) days later Cassie and I will be on our way to Las Vegas for 5 nights!! I had enough frequent flyer miles to buy both ways of airfare for me and one way for Cassie! My parents (remember how I told you they are SO generous!?) are letting us use their Timeshare (on the Strip!) for free the whole time we're there! It's going to be such a great time! The average temperature is 78* shut UP! haha Even Cassie will be able to get some color! :) just kidding Boo! We'll get back the night of May 3rd. My birthday is May 6th and the Arthritis Walk is May 7! whew! Those weeks are going to FLY by, better make sure I have my camera all charged up!

I am really looking forward to next weekend too. My good friend Samantha who is from the other side of the state is coming into town for Friday night. She has a meeting on Saturday. But we are going out to dinner and a drink ( or two :) ) and then out to breakfast and lunch the next day! I'm so excited to show her some of the "Local" spots of Grand Rapids!

On March 13th, I am taking my cousin Alison to Chicago for the night! We did this last year and got caught in the WORST snow storm in December. Took me almost 5 hours to get from Michigan City to Holland! Yuck! We decided to wait for a little warmer weather (atleast not any chance of snow storms!) So we decided to go in March! I picked the day AFTER the Chicago River gets dyed green for St. Patricks Day! It's going to be SO much fun! I love spending time with her :) She's 12, going on 27 haha.

Another fun thing going on right now is that 2 of my favorites that I work with are having babies!! and are due on the same day!!! It's crazy but so fun! I can't wait until that's me :) Well I can wait..but I'm excited! :)

Okay..I think we're all caught up now!

Since I don't blog toooooo terribly much, here is a fun way to keep up with me and my life :)!/TheLWord3

Goal Weight with a Goal Date!

Oh boy, I'm actually going to put this out there!!

I weigh 143lbs. yikes. My waist is 34inches around.

Last night my roommate and I were talking about losing weight and toning up a bit.

So my goal weight is 129lbs (we'll see how I look/feel from there!)
and my goal date for that is November 12!

Look for me to post pictures along the way!
