Be your own cheerleader…

After almost two weeks back at work under my belt, I found myself feeling eager to share some thoughts. It feels SO good to be back at work. Sometimes I feel guilty saying that because I really cherished and enjoyed every second I had home when I was laid off from my previous position. I…

Getting Laid Off…

I’ve thought long and hard about addressing this topic on my blog, mostly because it’s a highly personal thing, but also it’s something that a lot of people can relate to, so here it goes. Back in September we got the dreadful email that many pharmaceutical reps have received. We found out there would be…

Practicing Gratitude

I saw this amazing post on Facebook from Robin Roberts and she said she believes “optimism is a muscle that gets stronger with use,” and I just can’t stop thinking about it. It was such a great way to look at optimism and made me realize and reflect a lot. A few weeks ago, I…

Back in Action…Weekend Recap

The past few weeks, I can honestly say, my blog has not been what I envisioned it to be.  As I mentioned, last week–my job is going through some changes that I am hoping will continue in a positive fashion.  I am hoping to get back on track with my blog and my life, in…

Feel GOOD Friday…Entrepeneur style

I often think of how cool it would be to start a small business that amounts to something great!  I saw this article the other day about the lady who started making these little moccasins for babies out of her kitchen.  I have seen a lot of new moms post pictures of these moccasins and…

Feel GOOD Friday…Work/Life Balance

So the truth is yesterday I just didn’t feel like blogging.  It was the first day since I started blogging, where I was just completely in a funk.  I guess that happens, and any good blogger pushes through, and posts, but I just decided to stay quiet for the day. Anyways, I stole this article…

Weekend Recap…Aloha in 5 days!

This weekend was really a special one!  Dan and I became godparents to our niece, little Miss Rosie!  Her and her twin sister Ellie were such good babies during their baptism and they looked ever so cute in their little dresses and matching bonnets!  This is my first godchild so I was not really sure…

Always Trying New Places…

The other night I met my friend since 1st grade, Meredith, for dinner.  I always love meeting up with Meredith and catching up with her because there is something about being friends with someone for 23+ years that just lends itself to some hilarious conversations.  Meredith and I were both in Mrs. Remaly’s 1st and…

Please don’t ask me if I am pregnant!

So, I try to keep everything as positive on here as possible, but the weirdest thing has happened to me in the past few years–even prior to getting married.  It happens to me at work more than anything, but has definitely been on a steady increase since we got married, and I just feel like…

Monday blues…changing careers

When I was a high school senior and was trying to decide what to study in college, I decided that I would go to school for teaching.  Everyone I met in life told me I should be a teacher, so when it came time to make my decision, I decided to listen to what everyone…

Why you should talk to strangers…sorry MOM!

Part of what makes this blog fun is that I can write about whatever I feel like.  It is mine, and that is cool.  You may not like what I write about and I’m okay with that, I didn’t tell you to come on here and read it! Today, I started my day by getting…
