New Job, Mardi Gras, and a Wedding

HELLO Blogging loves! Sorry for the long absence but things have been C-R-A-Z-Y!!! The good thing happening that I spoke about on previous blogs happened! I am finishing up my first week at my new job this week. I left my old job last Thursday and had a near perfect exit. (There is always one that messes up the perfect record). I learned a lot at the old place and will miss working for my boss big time but I think the new place is going to bring great things for me. The new place has more room for growth in marketing (which I love), is 5 miles from my house versus 26 miles, and offers me a  MUCH bigger salary, how could I have said no.
This week has been a good one with some mole hills that I had to get over. (Which I have learned is typcial with new jobs) Tuesday after work though, I definitely cried on the way home. (blogging honestly) It was an overwhelming day and a situation that normally doesn't occur just happened to happen on my second day of work. Long story short, a gentleman I work with likes to wait until the last minutes to get together his proposals...and he was thinking that myself (and the girl who I am replacing who was here training me) were going to stay until ...6, 7, or maybe even 8 until the proposals were all put together...Does anyone happen to remember what Tuesday was... OH yeah! It was Valentine's day! A day and holiday that I actually enjoy. (Unlike all the facebook cynics) Luckily my other co-worker, who just happens to be an Aggie, told me that I needed to get the hell outta dodge, and that it was his own fault that this was happening. But then you don't want to be the new girl who isn't a team player but after talking to many people (including my own boss) I realized that I had every right to leave. Undoubtedly this rarely happens...I guess I just have really awesome luck. Poor Trevor, he walked in the door with roses and a V-day present and I was in tears. But, of course, he turned the whole day around and made me feel 1,000 times better. That is why he is my Valentine (5 years running). Since Tuesday things have continuted to get better and I am positive I made the right choice accpeting this position.
This past weekend we went to Galveston Mardi Gras. Overall,  it was an awesome trip, MINUS the below 40 degree temperatures. Seriously, it was "bleeping" cold. So we spent most of the night hopping into the little bars on the strand which was a lot of fun, it just didn't feel like Mardi Gras as much as normal since we weren't watching parades and catching beads in the street. Heather, Henry, Cody, Trevor....all I have to say is "TA DA!" ;-)
Trevor and I celebrating Mardi Gras 2012! I'm so glad I exposed him to this wonderful Holiday. :)
Our whole group! Cody, Trevor, myself, Heather, Henry, Brittany, and Patrick
Cody and me! :)
Heather, Myself, and Brittany...Notice the wand (If you want to hear a funny story about that ask) 
Okay now this is just funny, the picture was actually taken before the first group shot but this very rude, and terrible haired girl decided to walk right in front of us. I think Cody's face says it all.

Today starts all the festivies of Heather and Coco's (Michael) wedding! Rehearsal begins at 5:15 and with a small miracle, I should be their on time. Please send your prayers my way that I don't completely screw up my MOH speech. Thanks and Gig'em. :)

I hope that everyone has a wonderful Friday! And for those of you in H-town, have your row boat ready, flood watch is in effect.

Happy Friday Dolls. :)
