Life Update

Occasionally I feel like I get so busy "planning" ideas for blog posts that I forget just the life updates. The small things. The things I'll want to go back and remember that I was feeling, doing, thinking at this point in life. Thursday's always seem to be the day I want to make lists the most so I bring you: Erin's Life Update/Ramblings/Thoughts!
  • My manager was out of the office the past two days. That makes for a chaotic environment, but let me tell you… I need the title of assistant manager. That office needs me. Not bragging, just keepin' it real.
  • I miss this gal's blog… but rumor has it she will be back in action VERY soon! :)
  • I'm sooooo travel-happy right now. I need a good road trip in my life!
  • Paying off debt and being on an insanely strict budget is exciting but exhausting too. I can't tell you how many times I reached for that debit card just to realize I had to put it back. This WILL be worth it in the end!
  • Since I can't shop- I was super grateful for the cute jewelry Sugar Love Boutique sent me. I have gotten so many compliments on these earrings!

  • I'm married to a supermodel. I mean, seriously!

  • Sometimes I think I want to be a photographer--- no weddings, just families, senior pictures, babies. I got a taste of a baby photoshoot over the weekend and I kinda' loved it…
  • 2000s pop radio on Pandora is the place to be. Work, home, play…. it wins.
  • Family/friends should all be required to live within a 90 minute radius. I HATE missing people all the time!!! :(
  • Football season cannot get here soon enough!!

What random things are you feeling, doing, experiencing???

  6. You should do a side project for photography, like take pictures for peoples Christmas cards or something to make a little extra cash on the side to help either pay your bills of faster or for a little extra fun money!

  10. I've always really wanted to be a photographer as well! But, then you need those really expensive cameras and all that equipment. And, then all I see is dollar signs!

    Good for you for sticking to your budget! :)

  11. Yay for wanting to be a photographer!!! But photography AND saving money do NOT go hand in hand. I'm in debt big time from my camera/lens/software/etc purchases! Honestly, I don't think I'll be able to breakeven for another year or more! :( (ugh....why does it have to be so expensive!!)

  23. Ugh- I so agree with you about everyone you love being required to live close to you. Two of our closest friends just moved to Columbus...and I knowww that's not that far, but they used to be 5 minutes away so it's hard.

    Though I do love family living in awesome places (Cali, Florida, Virginia) that we can go visit...though that doesn't happen enough either.

  24. Road trips are fun! I hear ya - I think my workplace kind of falls down a little when I'm gone.

    And can I say - I think I might have swooned (just a little!) looking at the photo of your hubby. That is fantastic!

  25. Lovely jewels!

    My brain is on summer vacation like I'm still a student.

  26. Yay for road trips! I have a habit of road trippin' it up all year round! There are just so many fun places within driving distance of us and our friends are all spread apart! Hope things start to calm down at work! My week has been crazy busy too...bleh. Is it Friday yet?

  27. I swear, this has been an entire day of randomness. So unfocused. Of course, I'm sure that has nothing to do with the fact that a new bar opened up last night a block from my house.
