A Quick Update & Fill in the Bank Friday

It feels good to finally have some time to sit down, and blog. The last couple of weeks have been crazy to say the least. 

We had a hectic month-end close, and I felt like it would never end. 

My beautiful sister-in-law-to-be had her bachelorette party in Savannah, GA last weekend (one of the best girls weekend I've ever had; along with a really creepy pub crawl/ghost tour - separate post to come). 

AND, yes, I did it - I got a new job.  I kept the interview process quiet, mostly because I did not want to jinx myself. I start mid-March, and I am going from a Brand accountant, to a Real Estate accountant. Definitely new, and I'm sure it will be a lot to learn at first - but I am excited nonetheless for this new experience! 

Between weddings, babies, and life changes, I honestly feel like I haven't had some time to myself.  BUT this weekend, my other-half is celebrating his brother's bachelor party in New Orleans until Sunday. Therefore, I get the apt to myself - and I am finally going to be able to catch up on things, including my blog! 

I do apologize for the lack of posts - and thank you for not giving up on me just yet :) I promise, I have a lot of good stuff coming your way! 

Until then, here are your Fill in the Blank Friday!! Courtesy of Lauren at The Little Things We Do!

1.   I am currently obsessed with   our wedding registries. I think I spend at least 2 hours each time I log in to update them. I seem to find new things, and unlike others EVERY time! 
2.  Today I am  really annoyed    because,  I wanted to take the day off , and my manager decided that he needed at least 2 people from our team - so it was a first come, first serve decision. LAME. I think it is because he knows I am leaving.  

3.  The age I am is  27   and the age I feel is  22 when I'm around my friends, and 30 when I am at home, thinking about all the chores I have to do, filing taxes, saving money, and starting to save for a house next year.  Can I just go back to college for one semester!? 

4.  My favorite place is  Paris, because it is my home, and it has all the beautiful things I had a chance to grow up around. 

5.  Something I have been procrastinating is  believe it or not, going shopping for work clothes.  Don't get me wrong, I love shopping! but I don't know...I just get kinda bored when it comes to work clothes...I enjoy every day clothes better - even though I wear professional clothes a lot more.  

6.  The last thing I purchased was   dinner from Alon's bakery by our apartment. I got off work last night, and was exhausted so I stopped by and bought a caprese sandwich, and a few honey Madeleines. That's what happens when Michael goes out of town! 

7.  The thing I love most about my home is  that I feel like it truly represents "us". I love it, and love that Michael and I can spend a whole weekend without going anywhere, and be completely satisfied to hang out around our apt. 



Joyeuses St. Valentin

I still have a crazy day ahead of me at work; but I just wanted to take a minute to wish you all lovelies a HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY !!!! 

I hope you are all spoiled with sweetness, love and care (and some flowers too!) 

Have a beautiful day, and I will be back tomorrow to show you pictures of M and I's Valentine's Day weekend!


Accounting Takes Over My Life

For those of you who have read my blog for a while - you might know that certain weeks out of the month, I am MIA. I am not avoiding you - or the blog world - I am simply working my life away. 

Month-end close means long hours, no lunch breaks, and a TON of work to do. I usually get home, eat and go straight to bed. However, this week, I have forced myself to go workout - and I have gone 3 days so far - so yay for that!!! 

I will be back next week, but in the meantime, I am keeping up with all your blogs :) 

And if you are curious - here is a little peek of my second home for the week! 

XOXO Lovelies!!!!


Fill in the Blank Friday

My life has been filled with all kinds of things lately, and sadly - I just haven't taken the time to blog. There are SO many good things going on in my life (weddings and babies), and I should be so happy.

My work situation is a little stressful, because we still don't know what is going to happen - and I really don't like the feeling of uncertainty. I am trying to take it a day at a time - and hoping something good will come out of it. 

Until then - I feel like January was an OK start of the year. I'm eating healthy, I'm working out, I'm starting to lose weight - and I feel good. GREAT actually. Anyways, that is the update for the week! 

Here are you Fill in the Bank Friday!

1.   If I could only read one magazine publication for the rest of eternity, I would choose  the French version of Elle magazine. It is bi-weekly and I am addicted to it!

2.  If I were to run my own magazine it would be  all about fashion - but not your high-end/unaffordable kind. It would be for the girls who LOVE fashion, but who can't always dress up in designer outfits.

3.  I buy my magazines (at the grocery check stand or via subscription) usually Target. Lately I've been buying a lot of bridal magazines, along with InStyle, Elle, and Women's Health and Fitness

4.  I prefer my magazines (in print or online)  in print - I am not a fan of online magazines. I love the feeling of turning the pages, bookmarking, circling things I like.

5.  The number of magazines I buy each month is  probably 3. 

6. My favorite magazine genre is (lifestyle, gossip, home, etc...)  fashion, health/fitness, and home deco.

7.  The magazines I read regularly are  InStyle, Women's Health and Fitness, and Elle
