oh, hey there.

Seriously? My last post was about summer salads. Clearly I've been slacking in the blog department. I'm going to work on fixing this. No big promises for a blog a day or anything, but maybe at least a few a week... 

A good amount has changed in life since the summer, mainly from a career standpoint. At the end of August I began a new job! I am still working in pediatrics but am at a different facility. I will not bore you with details (or any of the ridiculousness related to the decision...) but I am incredibly excited about the change and know I am where I am supposed to be. I miss the kiddos and families I worked with at my previous job an incredible amount; I truly believe they will always hold a special place in my heart as they were the first group I worked with as an OT. However, like I said, I know I made the right decision. 

In other news... The hubs and I are approaching our first anniversary. Crazy how quickly time flies! We will be celebrating with a trip to Napa Valley, Sonoma, and San Francisco in a week. Bring on the winery tours and a day at the spa! If anyone has any "have-to-see" suggestions for 

Wait, I've failed to even mention the fact that it is FALL! My absolute. favorite. season of the year. Pumpkins and chrysanthemums and cool, crisp air and dark nail polish and sweaters and boots... This list goes on and on! Oh, and football/tailgate season!  And pumpkin bread. And pumpkin spice latees. And pumpkin candles. Ok. I think I made my point and am officially rambling (possibly in part to the red wine I am sipping as I type). 

And now, I present to you an iPhone dump, summer edition (minus the most recent pictures which I haven't transferred from my phone yet...). 

I learned how to "sock bun". 

My friend "bowed" my hair for a bachelorette party. 

The hubs got new glasses. 

I interviewed for my new job. Like our toilet??

I was a bridesmaid. 

We brunched. 

Bachelorette party number dos. 

Our tailgate spot for the year!

I got a cat. 

And a gift from my gaga.
