I know, I have been a bad blogger. It's not that I am forgetting about it - I simply have not had a minute to myself this week. Don't worry, this is isn't going to be a "this is what I have been doing day by day" update.
First of all, GREAT NEWS: I am participating in this Guest Audit Program at work, and I get to work directly with the Internal Auditing Group. Now this may sound really boring to you (no really, I understand), but this is an amazing opportunity for my career. I was given my first audit to work on (all by myself!), and I am so glad I finally get to do what I actually WANT to do going forward in my career.
Of course, this means that I have more work on top of my regular work; so you can imagine that I don't really have a lot of down (blog) time at work anymore - at least until the audit is over. If this works out, and I do well; I will get to work on more audits. I am hoping that when the time comes (hopefully early next year) for me to get promoted/move to a new department, I will be considered for the IA group. Either way, it is a good resume builder, and right now, I am taking all the experience I can get - so YAY for that!
I've been working on a few home projects as well, so last night, I went to IKEA, and got the shelves I had been wanting for our living room. I did not like the little bookshelf we were using as a DVD holder because it was just too small, and cluttered.
My idea was to get those shelves that have all the hidden screws/bars, and to hang 3 from the bottom of the wall, and use them as our DVD/decoration holders. I know it doesn't make much sense right now, but all I have is a phone picture, so I hope you will be able to understand what I am talking about!
I was pretty happy with the result. You can tell by the green and blue candles that those are the colors of our living room; as well as dark brown furniture. Gosh - I MUST post pictures of our new apt. What do you think!?
I did want to apologize for missing the Sunday Blog Crush two weeks in a row. The truth is: now that the NFL is back, I will be going/watching the Falcons games every week, and I usually try to avoid getting on the computer on Sundays. So I will try to incorporate my blog crushes into random weekly posts.
Let's talk TV for a minute. Did you guys watch the premiere of Glee? What did you think? I'm not gonna lie - I didn't watch every single episode of season 1, but overall I knew what was going on, so I decided to watch the premiere. I enjoyed it. I am not necessarily interested in some of the story lines, but I enjoyed the singing.
You know what I am disappointed about though? Season 3 of The Rachel Zoe Project. First of all, is it me, or was this season SUPER short?! And what was up with the constant negativity from Rodger, the complaints about working too much (from Brad and Jordan), what happened to Ashley (was she fired?!), and the baby talk - UGH! Seriously, I love Rachel Zoe, and I love fashion. Hence why I watch the show. I really don't think that all the drama in their personal life was necessary. I actually missed Taylor too. Yes, she was a bitch at times - but she knew what she was doing, and I enjoyed that part. I could care LESS about Roger getting mad every other second because he is not getting enough attention from Rachel! How old are you Rodg'!?
Last but not least: GOSSIP GIRL! As you can imagine, I have been in heaven watching the first two episode of this season; since it was mostly filmed in Paris. So far, I am loving this season. Good drama, twists, and I LOVE that Blair and Serena are going to school together. Yes, I am Team Blair, and I cannot WAIT to see what she has under her sleeves for this season. Along with her amazing clothes, purses, shoes and accessories that I am constantly drooling over. I think this season has a lot of potential. Please, don't judge me for being a Gossip Girl fan! It keeps me young, haha!
And because I missed my Music Tuesday post, here is my pick for this week :) Her name is Priscilla Ahn, and the song is called Dream. I love her smooth voice, and there is just something about this song that takes me back in time when I actually was a little girl, and would think about what life would be once I grew up.
ENJOY & HAVE A GOOD DAY!!!!
