moving on up......

So if you guys havent noticed, Ive been a little absent from my blog in the past week or two. Im not going to give you a long list about whats been going on in my life, but I am going to give you one big detail of an event.


You guys dont even realize how excited I was to hear about it. Technically, I dont really consider it a promotion, because my previous position was with a different team. But the hubs says I have to consider it a promotion because, well its a 30% pay increase HOLLA!!! can you say wifey wants a new purse? (ok no, Im not going to do that, Im not going to do that, Im not going to do that).

You may be wondering, well what does she do now? Well remember this post? First time in NY, but it was for work? Well the team I went up to help, was outsourcing all their Creative Services, so they offered me a full time position. Im so happy, because when I was up there all the people on this team made me feel so welcome and I felt like I belonged there. Not in New York, (well maybe) but in that department. They were my kind of people. Im still working for the same company, but now instead of designing mobile web sites, Im designing web advertising for basically the same clients plus loads more.

I still get to work from home, but there will be more traveling involved to the New York office. What a shame right? lol. Im actually scheduled to go for a work related trip next Monday - Wednesday. And yes, i couldnt help go on a mini shopping spree for new work clothes. A working woman has got to look good right?!?! Especially when her office is on Park Ave!

And this promotion came at a perfect time. I was starting to question my job security in my previous department when 2 of my hardworking coworkers got laid off. Not that I didnt like my job before, just this new path seems so much more ME. Plus the pay raise is definitely a major plus as we try to finish the kitchen renovations before me start making babies :) (sigh, I think I might be a little baby crazy, I will never admit it to the hubs though)

But I now get excited each time I log onto the computer to see which creatives I will be making today. And they even want to send me for some training in Adobe Flash. Which is awesome, because Ive always wanted to learn Flash.

And its funny, I remember my grandfather always telling me,
"If you find something you love to do, you'll never have to work another day in your life"
Its so true! I love me job. And it doesnt even really feel like a job anymore because I love what I do!


  1. Congrtulations! That is wonderful! I'm so jealous that you get to travel to NY often :)

  2. How exciting! So lucky to have such happiness at work and at home!
