"times, they are a-changin"

With the onset of the music festival season I've been wanting to channel my inner rocker. I've always appreciated the ease of throwing on a couple of layers, some kick ass accessories, and heading out the door. I wish I could say we were actually heading to a concert, but it was juts a normal Saturday around here. I held a gun to SSBF's head and forced him to the outlet malls so I could do some much needed shopping. I only ended up with four pieces total but I was happy with the discipline I used. From J.Crew I bought a knit blazer that is much more appropriate for early spring then summer but at $26 it was a great purchase for when fall rolls around again.At Gap it was all about summer. I found a romper that rivals the ones I've been eyeing from Urban Outfitters at a fraction of the cost ($31.98). I also found a great pair of high-waisted denim shorts and a light and airy vest to layer on tank tops.

SSBF has been dying to see where I will be working from when I start my job at Under Armour (1 week left at Enterprise!). So later that night we took a drive up to the inner harbor to see the building. It is in this fantastic little area right off the water in a business park. I didn't want to seem like a crazy person taking pictures of my work, but I couldn't resist taking some of the view. I can totally see myself here, everyday for lunch (they have adirondack chairs lining the dock!).

(SSBF is so secretive, he hates when I take pictures)

I'm still finding it hard to believe that in a weeks time I will be working for Under Armour, a premier sports apparel company. I'm so excited about this opportunity. I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off of my shoulders. Even at work people have noticed a change in my personality. I am so much happier knowing that I'm not stuck at Enterprise anymore. I'm not much of a believer in fate, but something brought me to this opportunity. I applied for other jobs in the past to leave Enterprise only to be turned down. If only I had I know that this job was around the corner for me. I'm not even going to try to begin rationalizing how I got here. I'm just happy that I am here. It's going to be a huge change for me and SSBF but I am looking forward to it.

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

  1. You look so great! I love your "inner-rocker" look! And congrats on the job! That is so amazing! You deserve it!

  2. God's wasn't time to leave ERAC until now. HE knows what HE's doing.

  3. Yay! for your new job! That's so exciting! Isn't it great how life works out just when it's supposed to? I was in a similar situation about 10 months ago... miserable at work and then quite possibly my dream job landed. God is good :)

    Ps - love your rocker look! wish I had some music festivals nearby to attend.
