still at a loss for things to say

I'm still alive, and reading your blogs. I don't comment much, but I'm reading. I think one day I will write again but for the time being I just can't seem to come up with much to say. One day, one day.

I quit my job today

Ok, I actually quit my job yesterday, but same difference. Here's the story:

While I was in college a few years back, I had a job that I L.O.V.E.D. I was the assistant to the merchandise buyer at a local college merchandise establishment. I can't stress how great this job was - only problem? Well, it paid a college salary and that didn't support the "grown-up" bills I had after college (Read: rent, insurance, etc etc) so I took a job with another company in town. I needed more money - what was a girl to do? So I stuck with this job for a year and half. I switched positions in the company - from accounting to sales. I didn't like either one, but I was miserable in sales. I loved getting to have lunch with friends, and shop or run errands if/when I needed to, but I hated my actual job. I was stressed out all the time.

I had decided a few months back that I would give it until December and then start really looking for something else. Until then I just prayed that the Lord would either change my heart about it, or give me patience.

One day last week I went to the place where I worked in college to talk to them about buying something from me. While there the manager was telling me how she was in desperate need of a new manager to help her out. Her parents own the store, and also own 3 other stores throughout Tennessee and Arkansas, so while she is managing the store here in town, she is also responsible for the other 3 stores. She asked me (jokingly) if I wanted to come back to work with her and without a second thought I said "YES!"

After going home, doing some major praying, consulting with Ben and my parents I decided that this was the Lord's way of relieving me of my stress and job that I hated. I had to take a caliber test to see if I had the skills to be a manager, and it turns out I do! (It also said that I would probably hate sales. Duh!)

Yesterday after signing some paper work at the new job, I went and quit my current job. It was very difficult, but great at the same time.

Goodbye suits and heels - helloooooooo blue jeans!

Where does it go?!?

Time that is. I honestly had no idea it had been a week since I last posted. I guess life just gets away from me at times. As a result of me being busy and not posting, I have quite a bit to catch you up on.

First I owe you some photos from Mr. Rights wedding.

Mrs. Right and her mom - I love this picture

Mr Right and his parents -

Mrs. Right's entrance - soo fun!!

First Kiss

First Dance

Happily Married!!!!

The wedding was great fun! I got to catch up with old friends that I never see, and I got to watch my bestfriend get married. Perfect :)

I also have pictures to share from:
Tennessee/Florida game (that was a joke of a game)
The Lovebug epidemic in south Alabama
Tennessee/Auburn game (WAR DAMN EAGLE!!!)
And probably more that I can't think of right now.

I think I'm quitting my job today so I have a lot on my mind. Maybe when today is over I will have more energy to write. And I have 260 unread items in my google reader - yippee!

Last thing - check out my friend Whitney's blog for a great giveaway today!
