WHW: Lately/news!

Hey ya'll! Long time no blog huh? I've missed ya'll! There has been so much going on around here lately and I'm excited to get ya'll all filled in. First of all, we're currently gearing up for our 3rd annual Christmas party this Saturday and I'm feeling so not ready. Luckily I have some friends coming in early to help and I think I'm 100% cheating and ordering some supplemental party platters to ease the cooking and kitchen prep a little. I LOVE our Christmas party and it keeps growing! Bring on the full bar am I right? Cheers! I think I shared our cute invites I designed this year from Vistaprint a few weeks back. Here is my current dining room situation:


Ok so here's the news - the reason my house is not cleaned and party ready - I GOT A JOB! Ya'l, I'm still in shock and a bit overwhelmed but I'm so excited for whats to come. I start officially after their Christmas break but I took a position as the financial administrator for the college of graduate and professional studies at Longwood University. It is part time, which is ideal and the only reason I took it, and it offered me a package that I basically couldn't say no to. The office is made up of pretty fabulous women and I even went to high school with one! It is the best move for our family and I am so happy, nervous and excited at the same time! 
My office is on the left!
The big advantage is that I only work 2.5 days a week so I will still predominately get more time with Miss A! The sad part? Little Lillie is no longer with us but she is now going to a friend's house full time (she goes to church with me so I still get to see her) Lillie's last day was super tough for me but I know she and Andi will be reunited once they start school! Anyway, if you'll say a little prayer for us and this new transition that would be greatly appreciated. Here's to new beginnings and a brand new adventure!

  2. Oh Wow! Congrats on the new job! I have been interviewing for a few different positions and it's been a little nerve-wracking, I just really am ready to get back in to the workforce but I'm also worried to make the wrong decision. Adult life is hard sometimes! Good luck to you and I can't wait to see pics of your Christmas party!
