Aca-mazing News

I got a new job! My first day is tomorrow and I am so excited to be doing something new and learning how to do a different type of job. It will be my first ever Monday-Friday, nine to five job. It will be great to have weekends and holidays off and be able to make plans with The Husband.

Since I am going from a job where I wore polyester (gross) to one where I wear my own clothes, I had to make a trip to Banana Republic yesterday. The woman was so helpful and she did not laugh at me when I said I was going for a look that was a cross between Kate Middleton and Zooey Deschanal. I got some cute pencil skirts and an adorable peplum top that I plan on wearing tomorrow. Plus, Fashion Friday will be a lot easier now that I have to look good every day as opposed to just Friday and Saturday.

My only small concern is that I am going from a job where I ran around and lifted things for six to eight hours a day to a desk job. I will definitely be hitting the gym more and must sign up for the fitness evaluation before I gain thirty pounds back. I plan on packing a bag and just heading there after work so hopefully that will help.

Fashion Friday- Birthday Edition

On Wednesday, I turned 28. It was a fun day but also kind of traumatic. My ten year high school reunion is this summer and I don't quite know how to wrap my brain around that. Anyway, it was a little hard because it was the first birthday I have ever spent away from my family but their phone calls were amazing.

Other than that the day was lovely. I did have to work and go to a stressful job interview but The Husband saved the day (as always). I was excited to wear a new dress and go to dinner at one of my favorite places.

Flowers are my fave gift!

Yummy birthday cupcakes

Got this dress in Vegas
I wish the pic of the dress was better so you could see how adorable it really is. It's sparkly and I just love it. I do wish I had high heeled black boots but I will just have to change that ASAP. Although it was about twenty degrees outside, I felt pretty cute so that kept me warm.

As I mention in my about me, The Husband and I got married on Leap Day 2012. Because of that, we decided to celebrate on March 1st which is today! His birthday is also in February along with Valentine's Day so I'm excited to see how we continue the celebrations.
