I know that I start every blog stating that it's been a busy weekend ---but it really has this time!!! Friday started off as a big day at work with me giving my Two Weeks Notice at John's. I had an awesome job interview on Tuesday, was offered the job on Thursday, gave my notice at John's on Friday. Friday was also my birthday, so it seemed like a good day to make a huge change. Twenty-seven seems to be getting a little old to still be working the retail job I worked while I was in college. I love, love, love the folks at John's and I will really miss working there --it's been the only thing I've known for the past 5+ years, but it is definitely time for me to get started on a career path. So.....I'm the newest Office Manager/Personal Assistant for Melanie Mauer Photography! I'll only be working 18 hours a week, so I will have plenty of time to prepare for and take the GRE before heading back to school in the January. I also will be using the first few weeks to narrow down my post-baccalaureate options. The front runners are Speech Pathology and Elementary Education with Reading specialization. I also plan on looking at the programs at both UK and EKU to see which will be the most expedient and affordable.
Please, please, please go to Melanie's website so you can see her AMAZING work! She is as nice and friendly in person as she seems on her page, and I am really excited to be working in such a positive environment.
Friday night after work we went to dinner at Bonefish Grill with Rachael and Sylvain, then had chocolate mousse cake for dessert back at the house. Pete was VERY generous with his gifts getting me a Green iPod Nano and, for both of us --a speaker dock.

Saturday night we had people over to celebrate new job/birthday; we had both cheese and chocolate fondue, with all the dippers. Emily brought this great giant bottle of champagne, and we spent the evening playing Apples to Apples, Catchphrase, and Charades.

Today was the Woodland Arts Fair --we got a nice print, but --and I'm SO ticked about this --MISSED the booth with the Scrabble tile earrings! We came home and cleaned up our party remains, went to the mall so Pete could get measured for his tux for an upcoming wedding, then came home to rest for the remains of our Sunday.

I love your blog. Congrats on the new job! I found a website where you could buy Scrabble earrings. My friend is a huge Scrabble buff and I got them for her as a joke/ gift.
Take Care!
