How is it already the end of April? I feel like I have missed the last couple months!
I am writing this post from 35,000 feet in the air en route to Banff for a conference. When I get back to Toronto, M and I are taking the girls to Niagara for a couple days at Great Wolf Lodge. Everyone is looking forward to some time away.
Starting in May, things are going to finally slow down a little for me. As I shared with you all back in February, I started a new job. What I didn’t mention is that it is only 3 days a week but up until just this week, I was working the new job plus 2 days a week at my old job to wrap things up. I am now officially finished at my old job (although I am continuing with one of my projects as an out-of-office consultant, but that is another story!) and excited for 4 day weekends every week! I am so pumped to have more time for hanging out with the girls, completing projects around the house and attempted improvements to my domestic goddess self (like maybe doing some chores or cooking legit meals).
As if this isn’t enough of a change, I found out earlier in April that I was accepted to do my Masters! I am officially going to grad school in the fall! I’m a little nervous about the prospect of going back to school but am also very excited for this challenge and the opportunities it will open up for me.
I will be off the grid for a few days while I’ll be travelling but I’ll check in next week. Enjoy the weekend!
I had full intentions of going out on my lunch break but was scared off my the snow that is swirling outside my office window. Instead, I spent my lunch break creating some inspirational artwork for my cubicle… Thanks so … Continue reading →
When I was a kid, I loved back to school. It wasn’t going back to class or meeting new teachers that I loved… it was the preparations. Making lists of what school supplies to stock up on, picking my first … Continue reading →
I haven’t been as active on the blog in the last few weeks as I would have liked but I have good excuses reasons. I have been very busy in my personal and professional life and have some exciting updates to share…
Exciting Update #1: I’ve applied to do my Masters
I’ve always had grad school in the back of my mind but finally went through the process of applying. Between researching schools and programs and pulling together an application, this took up a good chunk of my free time in January. I decided on a Masters of Health Studies program through Athabasca University (based out of Alberta) which offers an entirely distance education degree. I won’t find out if I’ve been accepted until the summer but I will keep you updated!
Exciting Update #2: I have a new job
This process was quite quick and within less than 2 weeks, I applied for the position, went for an interview and was hired. I accepted a position as a Health Promotion Consultant with an organization here in Toronto. I am starting my new job next Thursday and I am beyond exciting. The fit is so perfect and I know I’m going to rock it 🙂
Exciting Update #3: I’m an auntie once again
My sister-in-law had another daughter last Thursday. Her name is Noelle and she is absolutely gorgeous. We went for a visit on the weekend and I had the opportunity to take some pictures.
My girls were so excited to meet their new cousin!
So, there are my exciting updates and I hope to get back to my regularly scheduled blog programming soon.
I’ve been seeing Sharpie mugs all over Pinterest lately and I thought they would make perfect Christmas gifts. After looking into this a bit further, I realized it wasn’t as simple as drawing on a mug and it being functional. … Continue reading →
So I bought a tulle skirt a few months ago and while it isn’t a super practical item, the $10 price tag sold me. I wasn’t banking on it becoming a wardrobe staple but I’ve still managed to wear it a few different ways: … Continue reading →
Returning to work after a year long maternity leave gave me justification to spruce us my wardrobe. One of the items I really wanted was a pair of white pants. They are crisp, clean and a great look for the … Continue reading →
Here’s a shirt that I purchased at Winner’s a few months back for $14.99. I loved it so much when I saw it on the rack that I bought 2 of them. In addition to the lovely white and blue … Continue reading →
