Busy Bee

This is the statement that could best describe myself and my life lately!

I honestly don't even know where to begin...

I started my new job this week - I am officially working for a prestigious area university - Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), stationed in a local high school doing college prep and career exploration with their students. It's hard to believe that I have already obtained my first dream job so early on in my young professional career, but it's everything I imagined it would be and more. This new position came with a 25% raise, amazing benefits, 1.5 mile commute, more prestigious job title and responsibilities, brand new laptop computer, and job security.

We continued working on our master bedroom remodel - Bryan and my father finished the electrical work on our second floor, and we went out to purchase all of the rebuilding materials. All together we bought 20 sheets of drywall, 10 rolls of insulation, 34 - 2x4's, 25lbs of nails, and 3 new light fixtures. Our task this week is to raise the rest of the ceiling beams, and then we can work on getting the walls back up! I can't believe we're at this point in the process already, it's going to start looking like an actual room again soon!!!

We celebrated my father-in-law's birthday - with a nice little dinner celebration at a fancy local Italian restaurant, that made the most amazing lobster bisque (yummmmmmmm!). Everything was delicious and it was a nice little event.

Next week is another busy week - not only is it Thanksgiving, but we will also be celebrating my brother-in-law's 21st birthday. Thursday we will be stuffing the turkey and stuffing ourselves with delicious holiday delectables. Friday is Black Friday and the official beginning of my holiday shopping season. Saturday my in-law's have planned a nice little birthday party celebration and then of course Sunday will be spent recuperating from that lol
