Okay, guys...this is it. I start Monday.

I am the newest employee at a fabulous wedding dress shop just two miles from my house! I am incredibly excited to start this new adventure and amazing change in my life.

Ever since getting engaged in December of 2006, I've been fairly infatuated with weddings. I was an avid reader of The Knot until I discovered the gloriousness that is Weddingbee. Contributing as Mrs. Magnolia, I think I had a great taste of the bridal industry, and my interest was definitely piqued. I've considered pursuing other paths, such as wedding planning and stationery design - both are still options I wouldn't rule out in the future, but for now - wedding dress sales it is!

I truly think that this is going to be so much fun and such a wonderful change of pace. I CANNOT wait for Monday morning! (How many people do you know who say that on Friday afternoon?)

P.S. I've been tagged by two lovies ladies - the fabulous Kasia at Good Finking and the simply adorable Stephanie at This Casita. I will definitely be posting my obsessions this weekend, so stay tuned!

This is the start of something good...don't you agree?

I got a job offer. As in, I was told - go home, talk to your husband, see if this will work for you guys. If so, you can start Monday.


It would mean a pay cut, but it would also be more fun than any other job I can think of. I know that I could be really good at it, and I would love going to work every. single. day.

Stay tuned. There's sure to be some serious discussions between Mr. T and me, but we'll see...

She's Crafty!

What did I do today?

I made an apron...seriously.

It's totally imperfect, and I kind of like that about it. The pleats are on purpose, though - imperfect as they are.

The "M" is for my friend Michelle, who will be receiving this apron as a birthday gift tomorrow evening.

Because nothing says, "Happy Birthday" like your very first sewing project since high school, right?

New Years Eve: A Progression of Pictures

We went to dinner at Room in downtown Atlanta. Eh, it was okay. Good company, though! Afterward, we hit up our usual party at the Capital City Club. I hadn't been back there since our wedding reception almost a year ago! I just love that we have a reason to celebrate there every year.
Happy New Year! I love my husband!

Now show me you love me. Kiss me for the camera!

Success! Happy New Year!
