I'm back, I promise- Recap of the past 3 months

Hey guys,   my name is Katie... you may remember me...  I used to blog and then I got lazy.

But its ok honeychildren, I am back. You would think with the two and a half months I spent unemployed I would be blogging all the time because I had so much free time.   Well netflix and my lack of cool things happening to me got in the way.

So this is the recap...   I moved to Buckhead in Atlanta GA.

I was actively applying for jobs... and watching LOTS of Netflix. 

Every person that watches Netflix ever
Friday Night Lights, all the Kardashians, Pretty Little Liars, White Collar, The Lying Game... oy

So just so you don't think I was a total bum, I really was going to interviews and doing phone interviews.  I kept getting to the final round of interviews and then I would get the turn down email.  Which would make me binge on Netflix and cookies

I finally landed a Body Attack and Spinning job.  Which helped me to get a free gym membership.  HECK YEAH!  Which is where I took my first BodyPump class.  If you haven't tried it.  Put your spandex on and get to a gym woman!  It is AMAZING  

I could barely walk the next day, but it was good.  My butt and legs looked amazing :)

Well the holidays grew nearer and the job postings became more sparse...  I noticed my savings account was dwindling and I started to have regular crying sessions.  I really didn't know what I was going to do.  I was running out of money to pay my rent and get a plane ticket and buy Christmas presents.

But life goes on.  I just prayed like crazy.  I went home to see my family and got snowed in.  It was a great two weeks.  It ended with flights being cancelled and sleeping in the airport but it wouldn't be the holidays without a little spice.   

So on to the good part.  Right before the holidays, I got an email from the American Cancer Society (I had already had 3 interviews).  They wanted to know if I was still looking for a job.  I emailed and said that I was.  Well I didn't hear much after that and figured either that was 1. really random. 2. they ended up finding someone else. 3. They have a really long holiday break.

After I got home for Christmas I decided to send a follow up email.  The next day I received an email stating that they were waiting for HR to set up an interview with me....  hmmm that sounds good.

(please excuse the pile of laundry waiting to be washed and my mirror not even being hung up yet)

Well they finally set up an interview with me on Tuesday morning.  I thought the interview went great. I came home and watched like 6 hours of Downton Abbey.  I was getting so depressed, I knew if I got this job I was going to have to change my wedding date, but it also meant I had the job!.
Well not long later, I missed a call from HR asking me to call them back.  I did and the OFFERED ME A JOB!!!!!!!!!

I will finally get to wear all of the JCrew pencil skirts I have been hoarding and only wearing to church!  Hopefully I can buy myself a larger mirror and do more outfit posts for you. :)   

As excited as I am about being employed I have some major wedding overhauling to do.  Like finding a new date and switching the date of all of my venues...  PRAY for ME
My last week and a half of being unemployed will be spent wedding planning, enjoying going to the gym at 10am, painting my nails a million times and pinteresting all new work outfits.
