I had a pretty decent week. I worked everyday this week and everything went pretty smooth there, even though I was doing my job and covering for someone who was on vacation all week. So, combine long work days with hot weather, I spent my evenings at home sucking up A/C while going in on On Demand and enjoying being home and unwinding.
I love having an abundant amount of lemons within reach for ice water and iced tea. Plus, the $5 bouquet I grabbed from Kroger added a nice pop of freshness and color to my living area. The dry erase board I bought to write down notes has turned into a place for my roommate and I to write words of wisdom and even a guestbook at times for our guests to sign and write some very funny and/or inappropriate things….at times. I’m still tripping over the way my pillar candles have melted into bulbous wax entities that I love!
However, my favorite thing that I’ve been loving to do is participating in impromtu water ballon and water gun fights in the late night hours with friends and neighbors. So much fun for these hot and sweaty summer nights.
I’m really enjoying my life and the people and things in it! *grinning*
When it comes to car, a lot of people look at the outside, but I seem to focus more on the inside. Case in point, Chevy’s new Malibu 2013. A little sidenote, I received a 2004 Chevy Malibu for my college graduation that my little sister drives now and it’s still going strong. Anyway, the interior is sleek, clean, and sophisticated. Chic and appealing. So, I created a Pinterest board inspired by the new Chevy Malibu. Click here to view my Malibu Inspired board.
The images I pinned were images I thought reflected the interior, such as clean make-up, leather outfits, and sleek boots. Smart technology, impressive styling, a luxurious interior and confident handling all come together in the all-new 2013 @Chevrolet #Malibu to take your drive to the next level. Discover #MalibuStyle.

The older I’ve gotten, the more I’ve learned about things I like, dislike, and what I can’t tolerate in any shape or form. After you learn those things, you realize when you just won’t settle for certain things.
One of the best decisions I made recently in regards to not settling is my career path.I was at my last job for over 3 years and since it was working for a small business owned by a husband and wife and I practically became their third daughter and knew everything about the business. Eventually, I became too comfortable and secure with my job, but….I got burned out and it began to show in my attitude at work.
I loved the owners too much to want to look for another job. However, I realized that I couldn’t settle for the comfort of one job, when I knew I wanted and needed to expand my experience. So, I decided to not settle and start my search for a new job and got one that not only paid ALOT better, but also taught me to do other things and expand my knowledge base on other things. Also, I still have a great relationship with my former bosses.
