Updates and a few favourites! :)

I hope everyone had a lovely weekend! :) This past week has been rather crazy in our little household, Chris has been very busy with work and lots of projects and I have been trying to box up our apartment and get everything ready to move out this coming Saturday. In addition, to getting myself prepared for my new job, that I start next Monday. It feels like there are plenty of things to keep us occupied and it almost feels like a fresh start and new adventure is upon us.

With that being said, those are two things I wanted to share with you today, my news if you will, and reason for being a tad distracted and not having blogged in a few days. Chris and I were ready for a bit of a bigger space and change of scenery and our new place is so cute, I simply can't wait to get decorating and make it all cozy and homely. So you bet there will be lots of DIY blogs coming. I've been scouring Pinterest and already have ideas for our office spaces. :)

Furthermore, as you may know from previous posts, http://lululocket.blogspot.com/2014/06/the-stay-at-home-wife-meets-kohls.html since I finished wrestling I've kind of bounced around from retail jobs not really knowing where to settle and what I wanted to do. I enjoyed those jobs to some extent, being around friendly, fun people at Kohls and all the creative people and goodies at Michaels, but it wasn't what I really wanted to be doing. Having been able to have periods of time at home helped me get this blog up and running and gave me lots of opportunity to write, which I realized I love, it bought me more happiness and contentment and I was all smiles as new dreams of writing emerged from my brain. Those dreams still stand, but when I came across the Daycare center in my new apartment complex I thought I would check it out. They were looking for a part time teacher and after an interview last week, I'm proud to say I got the job. I'm really very excited as being a Nursery Nurse and working with kids has always been my favourite and number one on my previous job list. :) I've already got a list of activities that Id like to do with the children! :)
I will keep you posted! :)

With my brain being slightly frazzled, today I am keeping this short but leaving you with a few of my favourite things from the month of January that have helped to relax me and keep me from stressing out! :p

I've had to read this a bunch of times recently. As you know, family are my everything and it hasn't gotten any easier us all living in different places.
When in doubt and freaking out...watch Chuck! :)
Ideas for my desk space! :)
I love this girl! I've been very behind on my baking since Kelly moved to Florida, but with more space in our new kitchen, I'm determined to get back to it! :)
I've really been enjoying this gorgeous girls videos as of late, she seems really cool! :)
There will be a book recommendation soon but UH!!! I love Kristan Higgins. She is wonderful! :)
Last but not least, my friend Angie has been making me smile all week and is simply a joy to talk to, check out her blog, it's so pretty, you will love it! :)

Have a wonderful day and if you have any DIY tips or pretty ideas, please let me know in the comments below! :)
