A Week in Review...and a WINNER

Here is how my week went:

1.  Monday woke up REALLY late.  Was still able to get two kids out the door in under 45 minutes by 6:15 a.m., and got myself looking presentable.

2.  Tuesday accepted a new job that is part-time, allowing me flexible hours and finally getting me back into the field of marketing, promotions and journalism (ahem...what my degree is in).

3.  Wednesday learned my current position was being eliminated and my last day would be Friday (yeah, thank god I already had a new job lined up).

4.  Thursday had an uneventful day, but relished that nothing life-changing happened that day, so I ate pizza, and paid for it later.

5.  Friday had my last day at my current job and said goodbye to many great co-workers.  Thankfully my new office is just down the street from them and we'll keep in touch.  Oh, and weighed-in.  Gained a pound.  I chalk it up to major life changes and eating pizza.

6.  Saturday celebrated Father's Day a day early as the husband works today.  Spent a few hours at a friend's pond and fished.  Made a yummy feast of chicken and steak kabobs, roasted potatoes, and loaded brownies.  (Not that kind of loaded...think pecans, coconut and chocolate chips).

                                       

7.  Sunday (today), relishing in the fact that I get one more day off tomorrow, enjoying my kids, and realizing how lucky I am that everything this last week just "fell into place".

Ever had one of these weeks?  Sometimes looking at these pictures makes everything better.

Our happy little peanut:)

Chillin' at the pond - she didn't do any fishing.

This guy was more interested in the tackle box than the fish.

And last but certainly not least, the winner of my 4th of July package....drum roll please...

Kristen from Change of Pace!  I have been a long time reader of Kristen's blog.  She has a wonderful family, two adorable kids, dogs, the works!  I admire her love for feeding her family healthy, nutritious food, but allowing for those indulgences as well. 

Kristen, shoot me an email (sweetandsavoryfood@hotmail.com) with your mailing address and I'll get your package out just in time for the 4th!
