Cleaning House

A few housecleaning items to attend to today. Let me go down the list:

1. Yesterday Michelle over at My Notting Hill hosted a very sweet virtual baby shower for Lauren at Pure Style Home. I had every intention to get my submission in on time, but of course got caught up in work stuff and my office move so I totally spaced. I feel like an awful blogger to Michelle for so kindly including me and for Lauren because I am a bad friend- so sorry to the both of you :)



I meant to send this present, a Helen Ficalora charm necklace.

A "C" charm for now (for her son Christian) and then another when her baby is born and she spills the name choice. I don't have kids of my own, but I feel like its always presents for the baby, things to use on the baby, etc. So I wanted to get Lauren something special that had to do with her kids, but was more for her.

2.
My friend Kristine over at Living with Style was nominated for a Sweetest Things award over Daily Candy. Its a huge honor and I'm so happy for her- congrats Kristine!



So, could you please do me (and her) and favor and click HERE and go to the Sweetest Things page and vote for her- please, please please :)

3. I know I never talk about what I do as my day job, but there has been alot of drama going on with it. Long story short- my company was sold, they did lots of layoffs, I ended up keeping my job, BUT I have to move offices and it looks like my blogging during the day days are over. I am beyond upset, I don't want to move offices and I don't want to leave the building I am in currently. I know boohoo to me, pity party for one at Table 2 :)


I don't want to sound ungrateful because I am happy to have a job in this economy- I just wish it was in a field that I was obsessed with like I don't know, decorating :) (anyone in Boston hiring?)

So, if I seem distant around here for a little bit its just while I get my feet wet in this new office. Please know that I love all my readers and one of my favorite things to do is read and comment on your blogs too...so please don't leave me if I seem absent for a bit- I promise to be back soon.


Alright, off to finish packing my office boxes to get ready for my move- feel bad for me, packing sucks!

I hear ya, I'm in the same place with the job situation.
It would be so nice to take the design blogging and move it into a full time job...it's hard to break into the design world in Boston though!

Awww... moving offices does suck!! I wish the best for you - hopefully it'll go smoothly and much easier than you are anticipating!

By the way - thanks for sharing your tree finding pics with us - it was a beautiful day, and so scenic! Maybe I'll find a place like this in Texas and try it out next year??
