Fresh Start

Hi Everyone !!! Sorry I have been away so long..I had such a hectic week!

I am no longer employed at Sephora..I loved that job so so much but I went back to being a travel agent :) Which is my first true love.
I had applied at a Travel agency way back after I got laid off at he other travel agency i worked at. well just a week ago they called me in for an interview! This is an amazing job, it's challenging and fun. I make more money (which I could use) and have great benefits!

It was a tough decision to leave Sephora, but in the end I knew I wanted to go back to being a Travel agent. I really missed it.

I have my Ireland trip coming up on November 23rd, s I had to let my new job know about it and they were cool about it. I'm shortening my trip by a week though. So excited !

I have been addicted to green smoothies for the past 2 weeks..they make me feel so great and energetic!

As usual I have been eating a ton of oatmeal and sweet potatoes. A whole lot of huge salads. I feel so good about my eating right now, I just hope it stays that way for the long run :)

I've also been doing a lot of baking..I'm really starting to love it. It's very relaxing. I don't necessarily eat all the stuff I bake myself, but rather I give it to family and friends..and they love it! This is a blog I have been addicted to lately,

She makes the most gorgeous desserts ever! My goal is to be able to bake like that one day :)

I love the photos, especially the one when you hug the 2 mouses!

Is bakerella the one who invented the Cake-on-a-stick thing??? I think I saw that blog a while ago :)

Congrats on the new job...it's so awesome, I'm jealous: I'm still searching for a place in Mcdonald...

And if you feel like it, I would love to see the green smoothies recipes, I've never make one O_O!
