Playing catch up

Here are the highlights of the last several months told by photos because I really can't remember. My brain was very frazzled the first half of the year.  I'll post separately about all of the major running events that Chris has done in the first half of the year later.

Chris bought me a new Jeep in November!  I've always wanted a Jeep and I couldn't be happier with him, his name is Maximus.
Our Christmas card photo for 2014
New Year's Eve 2014.  We went out to dinner with friends and we were in bed by 10:30!
For Chris's Valentine's Day present I got him tickets to a whiskey tasting.  He was very excited about it and found several new whiskeys that he likes.
Chris bought me a new Kate Spade purse for my Valentine's Day present.
We celebrated Valentine's Day at one of our favorite restaurants and of course we had to get dessert to celebrate!
Opening day for Razorback baseball 2015
My annual Ribby the Razorback opening day picture.
March was a very interesting month with things breaking.  I was going to go to Vegas in May with Chris since he was going to be there for conference.  But, the rule of 3 happened and I needed a new tire replaced in my new Jeep, the stove blow up and had to be replaced and the heater gave out!  So needless to say I didn't end up going to Vegas!
New stove!
We attended the Wine Opener for Cystic Fibrosis.
I celebrated my birthday with a bright dress that my sister bought me.
Newton wasn't happy about not having any heat.  We woke up and it was in the low 40s in the house.
April- May
Baxter finally got a haircut!
We spent most of our time of course at Baum Stadium!
We attended a Country Chic Gala and we even had to buy Chris a cowboy shirt.  I already had the denim jacket and cowboy boots.

You've probably been wondering why I haven't posted anything in several months.  Since Christmas my work life turned into a living hell.  My boss hated me so much that she changed my schedule 10 minutes before I left on Christmas break just to ruin my time off.  She was so hateful and mean about it that I finally decided to start looking for another job.  I devoted all of my spare time into finding a new job.  I probably applied for 80 jobs from January to April and went on close to 10 interviews. 

During that time I continued to do the best job that I could.  I loved working there and I planned on staying there for a very long time.  But, my boss just kept making it harder and harder for me to stay there.  She started denying all of my vacation requests yet she would approve all of my other co-workers requests.  I would leave work most days in tears because of how she treated me. I had just about given up when I applied for a job at an area health care provider.  I wasn't sure if I would get it or not so I went ahead and told my boss that we had booked a vacation in October to Jamaica.  She denied my vacation request and said that I took excessive vacations and that she would not approve it.  I was so upset and hurt that I didn't know what to do. 

Thankfully I got the job at the health care provider and everything has worked out for the best.  I love it there and I'm so thankful that I left.  It's been to nice being at a place where everyone appreciates you and having nights and weekends off is an added bonus!!  Now that I'm finally starting to settle into my new work routine I promise to post more on the blog.

Hallow's Eve 2014

When I sent out invitations to our 9th annual Halloween party not a lot of people said that they could come.  So I decided this year that I wouldn't go crazy with decorating for the party and we didn't even decorate the garage.  I guess since our party fell on Halloween this year people either had to work or they took their kids trick or treating.  Normally there is always a football game the day after our party and had I realized there wasn't one this year I would have moved the dates.  But regardless of that we still had a great time with everyone that showed up.  We had to some good costumes and lots of yummy food.  Maybe next year we'll have a better turn out.
