What I've Been Up to Wednesday

You may have noticed that I have been pretty silent around these parts recently.. sorry for that!  Life has just been a bit crazy for me and honestly blogging is what has had to take a back burner.  As much as I LOVE blogging, sometimes something has to go, and well this was what had to go these past few weeks.  Since the beginning of August I have had something going on almost every weekend and while it has been a TON of fun, it has also been super exhausting.  What little time I do have I have been focusing on job searching and doing stuff for my "promotion" of sorts at work.

Those of you who know me know that I have been bartending while looking for a more career oriented job in the real world.  Well last month I was offered a position at another restaurant starting as a bartender, then after a few months moving into a key hourly shift supervisor position, and then hopefully within a year moving to management.  After talking with the GM at my current restaurant about it he said that he could get me doing key hourly shifts in the next month and would get me started on management training as soon as possible.  So I politely declined the other offer and here I am still at my old restaurant working crazy hours both bartending and as key hourly.  The hours have been crazy... some days I have worked from 8am-11pm which is CRAZY, but hey, I am making it work for now!

PS, Sorry in advance for the photo dump... but they say a picture is worth 1000 words and some of these pics say mountains about what I have been up to!

Besides being crazy at work, I have also been all over the place on the weekends trying to enjoy every little bit of summer possible before my favorite season FALL starts.  The craziness began in the beginning of August with our annual trip to Lake Wallenpaupack with friends.  We have been to the Lake the past few years and it is always a great time.  This past year was NO exception.  The weekend was filled with lots of booze, boating and overall just enjoying ourselves!

After a relaxing weekend at the Lake it was time to head to VA Beach to support my girl AF in the next round of bar champs!  We had a great time in VA... lots of laughs and good times had by all!

Next it was off to NYC for JR's bachelorette party.  JR is one of my old co-workers and I am so excited for her wedding in October.  JR and her fiance have been together for just as long as M and I had been together before getting married so it makes their wedding extra special.  My weekend in NYC was spent seeing Les Mis on Broadway followed by a fun night out at Culture Club!

The following weekend we stayed close to home and went to a BBQ at one of my co-workers houses.  We had a FABULOUS time filled with lots of good food, good beer and of course TEQUILA!!!!!!

The following weekend M and I headed to NJ to celebrate my mom's birthday and to help my parents throw a Labor Day Weekend BBQ.  We had a such a fabulous time in NJ and I was so sad that we had to come back early on Sunday morning so that I could work all day long!

This past weekend we FINALLY had a weekend at home.  I had so many ideas as to what I wanted to do, but of course it rained all Saturday so we couldn't do the fun fall activities I had planned.  Instead we went and got beer for our keg-o-rater... because well that is what normal married people do on their days off! 

After a weekend off we are back to our crazy schedules until sometime in November.  As much as being crazy, busy stinks... I wouldn't have it any other way! 

 Have you been up to anything super fun recently?
