Blog I have missed you...

I haven't blogged in so long that I almost don't  remember how to. So I guess I will start with a greeting....


Now excuses for my bloggy slacker-ness as of late:

  • I started a job at a salon and it actually took up my free time

  • I went on vacation to see my peeps in TN and was so relaxed I didn't even think about anything else

  • I started a new job, that I love, and I haven't made the time.

Fun things going on keeping me busy:
  • My baby turned 3 in July, she started daycare 3 days a week (dramatic ordeal for me but she loves it), she is sweet and sassy and my best friend.

  • I found out I was 6 weeks pregnant about 12 weeks ago. We find out the gender on September the 3rd.

  • My husband and I are in the process of purchasing our first home :) The seller accepted our offer earlier in the week and we get our close date this afternoon.

Little things I am excited about at this moment:
  • I ordered some new candles and the cutest soap dispensers from Bath & Body Works.

  • I got a box of 190 something huggies to put up for the baby for $5 bucks off of Amazon.

  • My oldest friends and I are pregnant at the same time and our kids will be the exact same ages apart that we are. One of them is having a shower tomorrow and I can't wait.

  • Duck Dynasty is back so that is always exciting.

  • Pinning décor ideas for our new house.

  • Pompeii coming out in February...if you haven't watched the trailer go now. You're welcome!

  •  Snap Chatting with my sister & sister in law :)

  • Pat & Stu Show on The Blaze they brighten my day & they actually read my tweet on the air this week bragging

Things I am NOT excited about:

  • Ben Affleck as Batman...BOOOOOO

  • I am getting bigger faster with this baby and I am only 18 weeks. I hate to see what I am going to look like at 38. My torso is extremely short so I will probably be waddling by my due date.

Did anyone sing the title? Like most Fridays, I created a Friday's Fancies polyvore post it was a lot of fun to make and made me want to hit the beach like asap! Props to {av} for keeping the creative juices flowing and giving us awesome assignments every week. The outfit I put together will be at the bottom of this post.
First,  I want to tell you all about a huge change taking place in my life. After 3 years of being our of the salon, Saturday I will officially be a working Stylist again. I decided about 8 months ago that I wanted to start working again part time and put my application in at a really nice day spa, I heard nothing back. A few months later I applied for a stylist position at the the new ULTA opening up in our area. I did get a call back from them and made it to the second round of interviews, but didn't get the job. I was completely ok with that, I had no sense of disappointment at all. I knew in the 2nd round of interviews that it wasn't the right fit for me. Last month, a position opened up at a small local salon in the town I am from and I applied immediately got a call back and an interview and didn't get that job. I will admit I was a little disappointed about not getting this job, but I just reminded myself that I put everything in God's hands and want to walk in His will, and no matter how much I wanted it to be it wasn't the place for me.

Cut to about two weeks ago on Thursday, my dad was over for dinner and we were discussing my job search. I told him I was a little sad & why also that I wanted to walk in the will of the Lord so ultimately it was ok. About an hour later I get a phone call from a random number and I almost let it go to voicemail but my Daddy said just pick it up and see who it is....It was the very first  salon I applied to 8 months ago!!!!! The Salon manager wanted to see me for an Interview the flowing Tuesday. Before I left the interview she told me I was hired and she wanted me to come in and shadow the following Thursday. My first official day will be Saturday. Not only and I excited but I am in awe of what the Lord will do when we least expect it.

I am so excited to start this new chapter of my life and take you guys along with me.
