i feel like this...

...except without the lacy black number.


so i have a job again. nothing fancy, but fun and quick- just what i need right now. i joked with my girlfriend Marla (who i used to work with in the news business) that someday at least this job should produce interesting writing topics a la Sedaris.

fortunately, i don't have to work (knock on wood and God bless Him for sending me Max- the most adult person i've ever had love me or put up with my spoiledness) but i've never been one not to-- remember, i was the girl that always juggled 2 jobs. i like to keep busy. i like to feed my etsy addiction (i'm TRYING to tame the clothes one). And well this is a fun job i have.

so we'll see...

i worked 1-9 today and have to be up there at 8 a.m.

ugh.

i'm not a morning person; quite the opposite.

think of me while you have your morning coffees?
(& speaking of coffee, play in my coffee meet-up date?)


this sweet husband-to-be of mine just asked me if i wanted to go to our breakfast place in the morning.

me: you mean before i have to BE at work at 8?!?! in the a.m.?! (remember, i'm not a morning person)

seriously, i don't know how i got so lucky. i love him. i love him, i love him.


any new news in your worlds? i'd love to hear!

Yay!!!! Hooray on getting a job and a fun one at that.... Mornings... Yuck... Yes they are the worst, nothing beats staying in bed all snuggly.... Hmmmmm I cherish those memories.... Oh to be young again... Adult problem free..... On a happy note, I have not been able to go to Mexico in 9yrs and I might get to go with Miguelito for one week and a half..... I am so freaking exciting I could touch the moon.... Sad because Humberto won't be able to go with us, but I can see my grandparents from my dads side. It's been to long. Just praying some things fall through and than Im set.... Keeping my fingers crossed ; ). Have a great night and a great day at work tomorrow. P.S. Max is so sweet!!!!!! You guys are awesome together!!! Lots of love Kary xoxoxo

Its great that you can be doing something fun and enjoyable. Haha I love that you talk about feeding your etsy addiction, I actually feel like having a little look over there today myself.
Dont worry I wouldnt be able to go out for breakfast before 8am either, eewk. I hope you have a lovely big coffee to get you started tomorrow.
In my life I have a job interview for next year that I am pretty excited about and an organisation interested in publishing my thesis at the end of the year. Isnt it funny how good things come all at once? xx

its so wonderful to read your once-agian happy and in love posts! I'm so pleased for you.
And what is this fun job, may we ask? And by we, I totally mean me but putting some blame on your other readers also!
News? hmm... only two more weeks of work for me! and then switching scenery and doing much more work without getting paid - damn internship!

m.a.f said...

i adore you in every possible way!

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

Congrats on the new job dear! I'm the same way - don't have to but really would prefer to work!

I've been wondering how you've been and glad to see that it looks like you're great! I'm in Asia now so mail is harder but hey if there's anything I can send you from this part of the globe, lmk. :)

Claire Kiefer said...

I love your new job!!! I hope that you'll post pictures. :) And I also love that picture of whoever that is . . . and kinda want the lacy black number, ha.

Rhianne said...

Marisa said...

I'm really anxious to hear about this new job... details, please!! If you don't want to share them here, send me an email or a facebook message. It's the journalist training in me- you know I need the facts!! :)
Love you!

Pooftacular said...

I'm happy you got a job you can enjoy :) That's what I hope to have someday. Though I have settled for being a CAD Drafter and hope to do what I love as a side job in my home. Hopefully someday :)

I emailed you the picture for the coffee meetup, though I'll be having tea :)

Cassie said...

Good luck with the new job and all I can suggest for the morning thing is coffee, coffee and oh more coffee I am afraid!

xx

Erin said...

Congrats on getting a job! And, I'll make sure to have extra coffee in the mornings for you...I'm a morning person, but even I have some rough ones! Happy weekend, love!

Erin said...

Thinking of you while I drink my morning cup of tea (which I photographed yesterday... will send you some photos later today! Love your idea)

And my darling, once you've got kids, going for breakfast before 8 a.m. will be no big deal, believe me! You'll be up at 6, so it really won't matter.

Thanks for your kind words about my brother. I'll keep you posted.
xoxo

what a great picture. i wish i looked this sexy when exhausted and moody. oh well. but now at least i'm inspired to be a little bit sexier around the house.

and congrats on the fun job- i don't think many people can say they have a "fun" job. sorry about the mornings though! maybe it will get easier :)

Faiza said...

wishing you a gorgeous weekend ahead while you work and play and love!

Annie Cristina said...

Congrats on the new job! The big thing going on in my life right now is that I *finally* finished writing my master's thesis and will *finally* get to graduate in December. Which is pretty cool. (:

Love this post! congrats on the new job! I am so not a morning person either, so I feel you there! My mornings lately rarely ever start before 9 am, and that is on a "good" (or is that supposed to be bad?) morning! :)

And I love how your hubby to be was going to go out to breaky with you BEFORE your early morning job date! Ha! That sounds kinda like my hubby... he is way more morning person than me!

Happy weekend! xo

danielle and dinosaur toes said...

it's so funny that you're anti-morning! i couldn't sleep past 7 if i tried, so i have no idea what you're talking about! i told myself i was gonna call you today, but alas, i git busy getting ready for the charlottesville thing tomorrow. talk to you soon!

Shauna said...

Congrats on the new job! Ive had the last two days off doing a yard sale and man o man! I see kids in the summer without a care in the world and (sometimes) wish I was in HS again.

April said...

One of my really shitty exams was at 8 last semester. Luckily my future roomie went to breakfast with me at 6:30 in the morning, and motivated me to study a little bit more, and not feel so stressed out just before the exam.

shelly said...

and i sooooo hope i don't have too many early mornings...i am a bear anytime before 10am ;)

xoxo
