I just thought I would let everyone out there know I got a new job!!!
I had applied for a job working in the office of a water metering company around the 4th of July. I obviously wasn't selected for the job...they called me a couple days ago and told me the girl they had hired didn't work out and they wondered if I still wanted the job. At first I told them no because I was just promoted to assistant manager at Lane Bryant...but then I hung up the phone...thought about it for two seconds and realized I would be stupid not to take the other job. It pays $3.25 more an hour than Lane Bryant does...I get benefits and paid holidays and also a paid day off a month...also it's full time so its a full 40 hours a week. Compared to 25-30 hours a week with no benefits and all that jazz...
I will still work a few nights a week at Lane Bryant (so I can still get my discount) because I do like working there...I just really can't live off of that job alone.
I start Tuesday and I'm pretty dang excited about it.

Four People I Tag
(I need to add that I HATE tagging people because the people I tag NEVER follow through...but the last time I didn't tag I heard no end ...so here..I feel confident that these people will follow through)
Maybe I'm a little behind on the times....but I just thought I would share with all of you that Harry Potter isn't going to be released at Thanksgiving this year...it has been pushed back to next summer...Crappy huh!
But, because of that...the release of Twilight has been moved up to November 21st...rather than December 12th (Happy Birthday Sarah and Kyle)...
Anyway, I am very excited to see Twilight sooner...but sad that I have to wait for eternity to see the new Harry Potter....
And, here is one of skinny minnie Alayna, since she took all the other pictures... I couldn't leave her out!
So, in total, I received 8 things from my 26 thing list...and I think that is amazing since I didn't really need any of it! (I included a bulletin board in one of those 8 things because I went shopping that day to Hobby Lobby and used an old gift certificate that I had there to buy me one...so it counts as a gift! And, Shane gave me a free Pepsi at Extreme Pita...)
and Me! (that's me in the middle...exactly 26 years ago!) Now that I look at it...this picture must have been the winter after I was born...since I'm sure my parents wouldn't be all bundled up like that in August!
I thought long and hard about this...so many good people...good blogs...to chose from...but tonight my decision was made for me. I chose Rodney. I know you are thinking....Katy....you can't just chose anyone...you have to chose someone with a blog...
Well guess what....he does have a blog!
This is Rodney Pierce...
We first met September of 2002...He has just gotten home his mission in Guadalajara Mexico. He and my dearest friend Sarah were super good friends before he left on his mission and so that meant that when he came home we were all going to be friends. And so it was...
Me and Rodney became pretty much inseparable that school year...we were both losing someone close to us (Sarah) to a marriage and we just sort of connected from there.
Rodney and I played many a practical joke on our friends....I still laugh out loud this day thinking about that silly candy bar dance fiasco...
Rodney has a very contagious smile (see picture below)...
Rodney is very committed to his work and is a very loyal employee...
Rodney is always ready to have a good time...no matter what is it...playing cards, watching the Cosby Show, or just hanging out...it is always funner (or is it more fun) when he is there.
Rodneys favorite color is dark green...
Rodney is a very talented cook...he makes really good chocolate chip cookies and also this other really good Mexican dish that he made for us a couple times...but I don't know the name of it. He also makes really really good sweet and sour chicken.
I remember one time he tried to teach me how to drive stick shift in a very scary and icy Wal-Mart parking lot in a very scary Honda Accord...he was very patient...
So...head on over to Rodney's blog (see the pre-mentioned link) and check out his latest adventure.... you won't be disappointed!
My dear friend Kevin passed along a tag where you have to write a blog dedicated to someone and he chose...Me...(with a litte prodding from Tacy I believe)...
Nevertheless it is a neat post and you should check it out!
These purple shoes! I know don't have any money and so you're probably wondering why I am buying shoes when I am barely scraping by financially...well...for my job I have to dress up and we are allowed to wear flip flops as long as they are 'fancy' looking...so I wear the same black sparkly flip flops every day and needless to say they are showing a few signs of wear... and since I can wear these to work...I figured it was a wise purchase. They were also on sale....of course.
Anyway, I just wanted all my friends to know I now own the cutest pair of purple shoes...my life is one step closer to being complete...
