Catch Up On My Life

Since it's been a while since I have written, I wanted to give you an update on my life in the form of a bulleted list...here we go:

  • I got a new job! It's kind of a long story, but I was very unhappy at my former place of employment. The job wasn't so bad, but the work environment was no bueno. If you want to hear stories, call me because I have them! :) Anyway, my new job is at Volusion (an eCommerce software company) and I am a sales consultant. So far I love it and the work environment is awesome! Some of our clients include the Barack Obama store, Ed Hardy and Crutchfield. The people are great and randomly one of my friends from church is my boss. If you are looking to start an online store, I am your girl!

  • Last Sunday I ran my third half-marathon. (The Austin Marathon) It's one of the harder marathons around because of the hills and my calves and bootie are feeling it! It was so fun though! I ran w/ a couple of friends (Allison and Jill) and we had a great time. I finished in 2:06 and I was happy w/ that considering the terrain. It always feels good to finish another race. My body (mostly my hips) is telling me to take a break from major running right now, but I hope to do a full marathon one day.

The home stretch!

  • Jeremy and I are celebrating our one-year anniversary this weekend! We are headed to Fredricksburg to stay in a B&B, but that's all I know. I love surprises! I can't believe we have been married a year. I feel like I have known Jeremy forever and we just grow closer and closer every day. In the past year we have gone through two job changes w/ me, we got a puppy, we started leading a Bible study (Tribe) every Tues. night, we accomplished many of our financial goals, we have grown closer to many of our "couple friends" at church and we have gotten to know our amazing city even better. I love him so much and I am very blessed!

My family

  • Ella is a brat! Lately she has been acting like a little toddler puppy. We have been trying to leave her out of the kennel when we leave (just for a few hours at a time) and she had been doing well. BUT, two Sundays ago we left her out during church. Somehow she got my eyeglasses (really cute BCBG I might add) off my nightstand and ate them. Yes, friends, she ate them. The only parts left where the earpieces and lenses. Luckily they were plastic lenses so she didn't cut herself on glass, but I am sure it hurt just as badly when she was throwing up/pooping out the plastic parts of my glasses. Jeremy laughed and said "if you are what you eat then Ella is your eyeglasses." :)

The evidence

Well that's enough for now. I just wanted to let you all know I haven't forgotten about the blog. Stuff has been happening, but I have been super busy. Stay tuned for pics/stories from our anniv. weekend in Freddysburg.
