I CONFESS...

/ that some work prayers were finally answered. I got promoted to senior agent this week. I feel like it was a long time coming and hoping this is the boost I need to feel fulfilled at work again. We had a position open up in our division, but it was on the corporate side of things, so I thought it was a VERY long shot of getting it. But Wednesday morning I got called into my bosses office and offered the promotion. Plus it comes with a pretty decent raise. Guess I owe Rory a steak dinner now. Side note: he took me to dinner when he got promoted and we always said that was our way of celebrating, so now it is my turn.

/ that we took our first steps into renovating the kitchen. We secured the financing for it and we should get money for it within a week. Now it is time to call contractors and start getting some bids. My dream kitchen is becoming a reality.

/ that mommy and daughter time Tuesday night was a success. My girls were amazing. We played in the tunnel (did you see the video on IG?), played with their ball tower, had dinner, cuddled and sang songs. Before I knew it, it was time to put them to bed and I missed them so much.

/ that I can get up 5 minutes earlier in the morning, get myself ready, get the girls bottles and house in order, feed them, dress them and get us out the door in 10 minutes less time than when my husband is home and gets the girls ready. I just go go go and get it done. But when Rory is home, we go about it so much more slowly. I like the more proficient way.

/ that I may have took at least 50 pictures and a few videos on Tuesday night. I couldn't get enough of my girls and now I have lots of IG photos to share. This never happens.

/ that I get to have drinks with my girlfriends tonight to celebrate my promotion and to send off Stacey to France on her vacation with her husband. So jealous! But I can't wait to hear all the places I must go to when I go for work.

/ that I can't wait to have my favorite macarons when I hit up Europe. Have you ever had Laduree macarons? No. They are heaven. I always get some in NYC and tried them for the first time in London. Now I get to get them in London and France. Calories don't count when they are your favorite dessert. Right?

/ that I really want to skip my dentist appointment this afternoon. Three cavities. Ugh. Has anyone taken mineral vitamins to help with your teeth after kids? Someone recommended it to me and I really want to try it.

/ that I hate the dentist, but pumped to have a few hours at home by myself to catch up on girly tv shows.

And that is all I have for now. Don't forget to link up below.

  10. Oh man... I loathe the dentist - its been the year of the dentist for me this year. I have used Clove oil to help with tooth pain & it makes a world of difference!!! I'm one that believes that the dentist put fillings in way too soon - if its not too late, I'd even get a second opinion.

    Congrats on the promotion! That's awesome!

    & I'm going to be jealous of your kitchen redo!!!

  19. Congrats, that's awesome! Hope you had a great time celebrating!
    For preventing cavities, I'd say your best bet is a good toothbrush like a Sonicare. It's well worth the money, I've still never had a cavity.

    1. Thank you. I did have fun with the girls.

      I do have a sonic care actually and go for the 2 minutes, floss and use mouth wash. It is so sucky to get these cavities.
