Party Planning Committee

This is the part where my Angela from The Office  comes out. I am officially one half of the party planning committee at my office! I don't have another half yet, but eventually there will be two of us planning potlucks and fun events at work. Needless to say, I am SO EXCITED! The only problem, I've never planned office gatherings for quite so many people! My first event is the Halloween potluck and costume party and I'm not entirely sure how many people will participate in the costume contest if I tried to plan one. I have been browsing the internet and have some across some great articles that have really helped me out...which I'll link below. But I also would absolutely LOVE any advice that my blogging buddies may have for the Halloween potluck and for any future potlucks that come up (we're planning for one potluck each month).

Human Resources - Halloween at Work - I love the idea of the costume contest and definitely want to try to do it, but I also really like the idea of having Trick Or Treating at work around 4pm so that employees can bring their children and have a safe environment for them to trick or treat. On a Friday afternoon that would be so fun, even though this year Halloween isn't on Friday.

That got me to thinking, what if we invited our clients and their employees and all of their children/grandchildren to our office for some trick or treating? Not only would that show that we really care about our clients, but the word would get out and we would potentially gain even more clients!

keiko lynn: Makeup Monday: Inspired by Adele

Stumbled Upon this blog today and absolutely love it! So many great makeup ideas and tutorials. Definitely good for someone like me who is a little bit challenged when it comes to make up!

keiko lynn: Makeup Monday: Inspired by Adele: As I was flipping through last month's Teen Vogue (yes, I'm a subscriber, even though I'm 26), I came across this stunning photo of Ade...

Such a happy story about a cute little puppy! Definitely making me want to go out and rescue a dog but I'm not sure Chainsaw would be very happy about that haha!

Just a Quick Update

Hello all of my awesome blogging buddies! I am so very sorry for such a long lapse in posts but adjusting to working 40 hours, and starting a full load of online classes has made me so busy that by the time I get a free moment, I just want to sleep! is a quick update and I promise to start updating more regularly now that I am getting into a daily routine.

The new job is AWESOME! I absolutely love my boss and my coworkers. At first it was surprising to be busy the entire 8 hours of the workday but now I am used to it and love every minute of it. It's such a huge change from the 6 hours of boring that was my previous job and it's probably the best decision I have made career-wise to get this new job. I finally have breathing room in my budget and am not worrying about how I'm going to pay for anything that comes up. I'm officially out of credit card debt :) Not that I was in it that deep but any credit card debt isn't good! Still have my student loans to pay off but those I'm not too worried about.

I started classes about a week ago. All are online courses and I have 12 units, which is going to make me very very busy. But like one of my favorite professors said "If you want something done, give it to a busy person" and it's true. I am getting more done in my days when I have an overwhelmingly amount of tasks to accomplish than when I had nothing to do and nothing to worry about. It's funny how that works out!

We have a new roommate, well two technically. Brittney moved in until she finds a place of her own (bad roommate situation previously) so she is bunking with George and Tiberius and they adopted a new little furry friend who is our other new roommate. His name is Indie and he is such a sweet little kitten. So mellow and cuddly! Chainsaw isn't so sure about him but he will warm up to him like he did with Tiberius. Personally, I love having 3 cats but Jeremy can think of other things he would rather have haha.

I think that is all there is to update for now. I will try to post some more later on in the week when I get some time between studying. <3 you all and thanks for bearing with me while I go through this great adventure!
