Valentine's weekend

This morning I woke up and went over to Luxe Salon in Glendora to visit my long time hair-stylist Lisamarie (instagram account here).  I decided to go know be all grown up.  I don't know if I love-love it...yet.  It'll grow on me though (heehee).

Later, I checked in on the pups that I was dog-sitting this weekend.  I took Mitch with me; poor little guy-he's for sure an only child and just doesn't know what to do with a dog running circles around him. Mitch is the squishiest little Valentine I could ask for.

Maybe it's not much of a Valentine's day celebration....but I'm looking forward to all the half-priced candy tomorrow!!

Cheers and Happy weekend all!

checking in

Just a quick little check is good.  I feel fresh and renewed for the first time in a long time.  I am actually waking up before the alarm goes off, ready to start my day. It is such a good feeling.

I'm still getting to know my way around the new job, and am still coming out of my shell a bit.  I'm just quiet around new people...once I get a better knowledge of my daily tasks, I'm sure I'll warm up.  I'll be in training this week learning the computer systems - so by the end of the week I'll be a pro. (Probably wishful thinking, but I'm going with it).

I'm working long hours, but the time goes by so fast that I'm not completely worn down by the end of the day.  I just can't get over how changing one thing in your life changes everything.

Cheers all ~ hope that you have a happy and beautiful week!

Fresh start February

Tomorrow is my first day of work at a new job.  I'm excited and that last night of summer before going back to school.

Leaving my last job was harder than I thought.  I'd made good friends there, and will miss seeing them everyday.  The job itself was easy to walk away from: extreme hours, two time cards, having to run personal errands for the boss...bye bye!

I have needed to upgrade my work wardrobe rather quickly...and come to realize that I really do need to drop some pounds.  It seems I can squeeze myself (tightly) into a 12...but then 14s are baggy.  It would also be nice to lengthen my legs by an inch, inch and half...luckily I have a tailor that I use for my inseams.  I always seem to need my tailor to alter the length of my pants (in pants Short is too short and Regular is too long).  I'm just all kinds of in-betweens.

I also used this Super Bowl weekend to get my nails done and am so happy to announce that a brand new place has opened up right by my house. Score! They are affordable and oh so clean.  They even have you sign off that the items they're using are sterile.  I went with a nice simple purple/gray shade.

Keeping my fingers crossed that all goes smoothly tomorrow! Wish me well.

Cheers all!!
