(this is not my tree, but I hope mine turns out to be this gorgeous!)
I'm just now getting over my 11 day (but who's counting) stint of sickness. BLAH! I literally have not been sick in years, and this cold that I'm recovering from kicked my ASS! Ear ache and all. EWWWWWW!
Anyways, things are starting to look up for this girl, and I couldn't be happier. I received a phone call yesterday morning that, I believe, was the turning point for my two weeks of misery that I've been experiencing. I'm pretty sure the Big Man upstairs had something to do with it, as I have been praying every single day for his guidance and support :)
--Back to that phone call--
So my boss calls to tell me that I have just been given a $5,000 raise because of all of my hard work and dedication that I have given to my team in my newly appointed position as 'Team Leader.' WHAAAAT?! I know that I am very underpaid for what I do, but for crying out loud, I work for a non profit, and getting that kind of a raise is almost unheard of around here! LOL! Instant gratification instilled upon me, and I literally wanted to reach through the phone and hug my boss!!
So what are we doing this weekend? We're celebrating, my friends. Not with cold beer and good food, like we normally would if I wasn't preggo, but we are going shopping and out to lunch with our two year old. :) The weekend cannot come soon enough.
Here are just a few things that are on my wishlist...
Cute flowy dresses to wear in these final weeks of pregnancy and also post baby...
Nautical inspired cuteness...
Statement necklaces--preferably some big PEARLS!
RUFFLES--lots of ruffles!
Bright colored jewelry!
COMFORTABLE and CUTE dresses!

Let's be honest, our trip will not be complete without purchasing our Teagie Tot her favorite pair of summer shoes--- crocodile dundees AKA CROCS--don't judge, they're cute and practical--for a two year old :)
Talk to you tomorrow-- wait, WHAT? Two posts in one week? Yup that's right, I'm doing a Current Favorites post tomorrow, so come by and check it out!! :) :) :)
