Last night I made time to go watch Caleb coach and play with his work softball team. He rocked it. I may or may not have been insanely proud when he made the best diving catch ever.

This week at work has been testing my patience but definitely rewarding. I don't think I've mentioned it on the blog but I'm moving positions within my company! I was feeling really anxious all the time, overworked, frustrated and annoyed that I had to go in every morning. I hated that! I love the people I work for and with and didn't like the attitude I was having towards my job. I decided to have a talk with my boss about it and had recently discovered the receptionist was (sadly) moving out of state.

Ironically enough, just a few days prior, Caleb surprised me at work to say hi and I was covering the receptionist lunch coverage. He told me how great he thought I'd be at being the receptionist and I laughed while thanking him, but told him the position wasn't even up for grabs (see how God works?! He was moving this all into motion before I even considered it an option). Just a couple days later, the receptionist told me she was leaving, so that's when I decided to have the talk with my boss.

Everything worked out and I begin August 1! I'm genuinely excited. I love being up front, having interaction with clients and everything that comes with the position. The hours are great and I think it'll be a fun change of pace that I absolutely needed!

So while this week at work has been tough, it's been worth it! I'm wrapping up all my current projects and am ready to pass the torch off to the next person!

5 simple things I'm thankful for this warm Friday morning:
-Carpooling with my husband to save gas (added bonus when I get to hear him sing in the car)
-Old Navy clearance racks - needed a couple tanks to get me through summer and they definitely delivered)
-Getting to try new Snickers flavors thanks to your MIL who works for Mars! YUM! Hint hint: think Nutella.
-Free education from your favorite photographers
-Brides who pay the best compliments about your talents!

Have a great weekend, friends!!

Linking up with Amanda today! 


  1. I always thought being up front would be fun. You'll rock it! Just make sure you're not looking at Google for clothes all the time & forget to scan a huge chunk of papers ppl bring in. (true story...our mortgage persons receptionist was in the middle of bathing suit shopping, got upset we interrupted her and neglected to copy a chunk which resulted in us having to scan & email at home).

  2. Congratulations on the new position!!

  3. Yay congrats!! I hoep you love your new position!!

  4. Congrats on the new position!! I now you will be great at it. :) Happy Friday!

  5. Woo hoo! Congratulations on the new position!!!! I am an administrative assistant at my office and I LOVE it!! I hope the transition it smooth for you and that you love your new position! A change is always exciting and can be so refreshing. I am so sad Matthew doesn't play softball in the summers anymore. He played with our old church but when we moved to Nashville and started attending a new church it doesn't have a league and we both miss it. Carpooling is THE best! Saving on gas and morning and afternoon car ride dates. Hope y'all have a great weekend! :)

  6. I always thought it would be so fun to run the front desk somewhere! & I love riding around in the car with my favorite people just catching up while we run errands :)

  7. Congratulations on the new position! That's exciting! I'm sure you'll feel super refreshed and excited about work when you're doing something totally different! That does actually seem like a job right up your alley. That's amazing that the receptionist was leaving just when Caleb said that. :) Your mother-in-law works for Mars?! How awesome is that?! Have a great weekend, friend!

  8. Congrats on the new job! I was a receptionist for a few years and I LOVED it!! You will be great!

  9. Hi lil Kaylabelle ����. I'm glad Brittany clarified for me, that MIL Mean's Mother-in-Law. Lol! Apparently, I am super old and out of the young folk lingo! That's super exciting about your new position! I also loved doing the receptionist position. I'm so excited for you!! Yippie Skippie! Love you sweetheart and hope you have a great week!! ����������❣

  10. What did your old position involve?
