Fun Day at the Park

Today Chris and I took Zeppelin to a park in south Knoxville. It was very peaceful and Zeppelin was awesome...didn't even try to run away! It was a very fun day and the weather was beautiful!

Happy Birthday Dear Zeppelin, Happy Birthday to You!

Today was Zeppelin's first birthday. Our little boy is growing up (sniff sniff). We had a little party with some friends! Enjoy the funny pictures!

Chris, Whitney, Me, Josh, and Justin and the birthday boy!
And yes, be jealous of our super cool hats!

Might be the best picture ever! So adorable! Zeppelin loves his aunt Whitney!

Even Chris was a sport about wearing the hats. Too cute!

I look rough, but its a cute picture if you can get over that part...

Even Justin (Whitney's boyfriend) came to celebrate!

My attempt at making a dogbone cake. I'll get better before I have kids I hope. If not, I'll be saying, "Mooooommmmy....!"

We were determined to get a picture of him with the hat on...

This was as good as it gets!
I'm so glad we have such great friends. They were all great sports about wearing the hats, playing with Zeppelin, and letting me take blackmail pictures. I LOVE my friends!

I Need a Vacation

This is where I want to be right now!

Good thing I'm going to get a 12 day vacation I didn't plan on. My start date with AT&T got bumped back to May 12.

The good news is, I can get a bunch of stuff done, see my friends, and get a tan!

Need to Post

So I have been really bad about updating on here. There hasn't been much going on as of late, so there isn't really much to post. So bare with me, this will be incredibly random!

-I will be living in Atlanta in 2 weeks and 1 day. This is crazy to me, because I can not imagine living there BY MYSELF!!!!
-I'm currently working out my notice at PerfectServe...and have been put back to the text agent 24/7. Its great since it allows me to do tons of other things, but it is slightly boring, for someone who thrives on learning new things!
-I made my new budget for the next 6 months yesterday, and things are looking VERY exciting! I'm going to make the most of this time of paying no rent, utilities, cable, etc and SAVE SAVE SAVE!
-I was told last week by an amazing lady who I admire that I am really "growing up." I've come to realize that this means I'm learning to make the "unfun" decisions, such as going shopping for business suits, instead of summer clothes...NO FUN! hahaha
-Apparently no one under a size 8 would need to wear a suit. Because thats one of the smallest sizes for 90% of suits (I'm a 2!). The good news is...I feel very thin!
-God is so amazing! I'm learning so much in my new Biblestudy, "BreakFree" by Beth Moore. Only one week in and I can't wait to dig deeper into God's Word.
-I'm getting a lot better at cooking smaller portions! I used to always have tons of leftovers, which neither Chris or I like to eat.
-Zeppelin's 1st birthday is this coming Sunday (April 25). Happy Birthday Zeppelin! Now its time to start acting like a big boy (ie...stop going to the bathroom in the house)!
-I went to the Knoxville zoo on Sunday with my friend Kristen and her almost 3 year old son Jamison. It was great to hang out and watch Jamison get so excited about seeing the animals!
-I NEED a tan. Pronto. Seriously.
-Found this website (! They have all different deals for big cities around the US, but they sell them at incredible prices. Example: I just bought a $40 coupon for dinner in Atlanta for $15. If you sign up, use this link please! When you refer people, you get extra goodies when you buy stuff!
-Life is hectic. Just trying to slow down, spend time with people I love, and prepare for this new adventure! Can't wait to see where I end up in a few short months!

Okay. Well thats life. Can't wait to update from my new stomping grounds!

New Job...AGAIN!!!!

Praise the Lord! I officially accepted my offer for AT&T's Retail Sales Leadership Development Program! I will be starting on May 5, and will be moving to Atlanta for the next 6 months to complete training. Upon the completion of training, I will be relocated to some city in the United States! While it is slightly unnerving to not know where I am going, it is very comforting to know that God already knows, and he is preparing a church home for me and new friends for me to meet!

The basics of the next 6 months are:

-13 weeks in Atlanta, GA for training

-6 weeks in an unknown city working at an AT&T store to apply my lessons
- 2 weeks as a sales person
- 1 week as the assistant manager
- 3 weeks as the store manager

-5 weeks back in Atlanta to complete the training, receive my store assignment, and come up with my game plan

At the end of the 6 months, I will be a store manager at an AT&T retail store, with the goal of moving to regional retail manager within 1 to 2 years. From there, the sky is the limit!

Thanks for all of your prayers and support during this process of finding a job. Please continue to pray for me as I prepare for this journey. Love you all!
