Steph + Brickyard = AWESOME

July 11, 2013

I’ve been working at the same company for 5 years and it’s my first professional job since I started my internship there. I knew it was time to start looking for a better opportunity since I’m not into the commercial real estate industry as a marketing specialist and that’s not my dream job. As much as I was comfortable where I am and love my job, I needed to move on.

I came across this job posting for a graphic/web designer for a marketing company that’s 10 minutes away from home. This is a huge thing since my commute is 1 hour each way with traffic. So working 10 minutes away from home is a dream! I applied and got an interview scheduled. I was so freaking nervous! The last time I had an interview was 5 years ago obviously.

I did research on their company since I wanted to make myself stand out. So I went to Paradise Bakery to get a cookie cake made. I asked them to have the cookie read, “Steph + Brickyard = AWESOME” with their colors- orange & black. It turned out great!

My interview went well and they loved the cookie cake! I got a job offer immediately the next day. I was sooo excited that I went straight to my parents’ house to tell them the news instead of going home. I was so nervous at the same time because I had to make a tough decision- to stay where I am or go for this new opportunity. I didn’t want to disappoint my team at work and my boss too but I knew it was the right thing to do.

So I got a job at Brickyard!!! I haven’t met everyone yet but so far everyone is so nice and friendly! My first day at Brickyard is on Monday the 15th and my last day is tomorrow. I hope I don’t get too emotional. It’s going to be weird walking out and not saying “see you tomorrow” to my team.

On to the next chapter of my life and looking forward to it.

Life in April

April 19, 2012

// I miss blogging so that’s why I’m back!

// I don’t curl my hair that often so when I do, I must take pictures. Moving on.

// Best sale at Bath & Body Works – 2 candles for $20! Summer Boardwalk & Beach Grass are now my new favorites.

// It’s going to be 100 degrees this weekend. Not great timing since we’re going to be working on the backyard putting pavers in.

// I love The Hunger Games! Yup, I caved in and am still reading it. :)

// Check out my cute little fan that I got for my cube at work! {from Target}

// I attempted the braided top knot {from Ashley aka The Shine Project}. I didn’t think it would work since I don’t have thick hair but hey it did with a small bun.

// It’s been a while since Tyler and I have had the house to ourselves. Our roommate is moving out tomorrow morning. He’s moving back home to be closer to his family. We’ll miss him but we’re excited to have the house to ourselves again. Tyler is anxious to get his hands on the room and turn it into a man cave. He’s unstoppable!

// I know I promised a post on what iPhone photo apps I use and I’m already working on it. Hopefully it’ll go up next week. <3

Things You Didn’t Know About Me

March 7, 2012

I was inspired by San to do this post when I read hers so here I am doing this.

♥ I tease my hair every morning! {see image above}
♥ I over think things & always think of “what if” situations.
♥ I’m a homebody like woah!
♥ I’m a real picky eater. {fruits > veggies all the way}
♥ I set the alarm for 2 hours before I have to be up because I have to snooze like 15 times. Tyler hates it!
♥ Dumb drivers piss me off & it doesn’t help that I drive 2 hours a day.
♥ I refuse to cut sweet pickles myself. My mom always did it for me & thankfully Tyler took over when I moved out.
♥ It scares me to think about 5 years from now.
♥ I love smoked oysters & pickled herring. Thanks to my family & grandpa!
♥ Sometimes I compare myself to others…a bad habit of mine.
♥ I’m obsessed with nail polish & paint my nails 1-2 times a week.
♥ I have over 30 photo apps on my iPhone. I’m obsessed with Instagram!
