Because of your guesses I have to say the news right away...

So, earlier I wrote a post about big news to share with everyone.  I forgot that my blog is linked up to my facebook account so all my FB friends can see too.  Then one person wrote down the guess of  "baby?" and BAM!, I get texts and IMs asking if we are pregnant! It spreads like wildfire anything you put on FB. So, in order to tame the fire down and not let this get way out of hand, I'm going to "officially" share the big news with you all.

I got a new job!!!!!!

Yep, it's official.  In two weeks I will leave one corporate world to join another.  But the other corporate world is 15 minutes away from my house! Compared to the hour and half commute and shit load of money I was spending to work in NYC.  Am I happy?  YES!  Am I sad?  Yes, because I liked my job very much, but just couldn't  handle the commute anymore and realized I was growing but my current job wasn't leaving me too much room to grow in. So, for the last 6-8 months I have been actively searching for a job and boy was it not easy.  It was frustrating and at one point seemed impossible to me!  When they say it's hard times out there, they mean it 100%.  But God was kind enough to answer my prayers and last week, everything fell into place.  I couldn't be happier.

So, sorry to disappoint those folks about the news not being about a Baby Giggles coming along.  But, keep up that hope!  In the future, it will happen.  Just pray that it's not twins in the first shot because I might just lose my sanity if it is.

So, I ask you send me lots of positive thoughts my way as I go straight into my new job and I'm praying transition is smooth.

I leave you with a bad picture of me looking like i'm Asian and like I'm 5 years old again .... I most definitely was tipsy (hence party cup in front of me along with Heineken bottle) when this picture was taken.  Just sayin...
