Tuesday Update: It's Thursday, I Know





















 
I am so excited we have made it to Thursday! I have been crazy busy with real estate stuff. Learning a lot and so excited to begin my new career but taking it one day at a time. One thing I have learned through the journey of me and my career is to take it one day at a time. Don't freak out at the small things. Enjoy the moment and learn as much as you can. If you hate your job: get the hell away as fast as you can. Life will open up for you. 

I haven't really gone down the "correct" path to my career. In today's world you hear, go to college. Get a job. Work hard and get lots of promotions and money. (Enjoy the student loan debt you accrued while doing this.)

Well, I had three kids by twenty four. Graduated from college somewhere during all of that. Got my so-called dream job designing kitchens. Hated it. Cried daily. Decided I needed a change and worked with four year olds. This was the first job I ever loved waking up in the morning for. Joe and I moved across country and I hoped to get back to what I left in Memphis. 


Found out our new location offered nothing of the sort so I went back into kitchens. Absolutely despised the working environment at the small company I worked for. The owner was sexually degrading and if I could really tell you what he did behind closed doors you would be disgusted. (If we ever meet in real life, let me tell you all about it. Just ask.) Decided I had had enough! So I left. 


A great friend of mine told me about a job opening at a cute gift shop in Williamsburg. I aced the interview and started right away! For the last two and half years I learned how to master gift wrapping, sweeping a floor and unwrapping boxes. The time came, as it does, where I realized it was time to move on. Began studying to take the Virginia Real Estate test to get my license and now doing what I have loved for years and years just didn't think about how to add it into my daily life. Looking at houses. Talking about zoning. Being around groups of people daily and laughing. 

Life is a journey and I'm so happy this one has begun. Have a happy Thursday! 

I'll probably be off the computer for the next couple of days. We are heading to my happy place - the lake. I'll try and upload some photos on Instagram but I may not. :)

Happy National Middle Child Day Sage









You know the middle child does sometimes get the short end of the stick. Squished between two kids that want to have their say and let you hear about it, the oldest and the youngest are normally pretty loud. The middle one sits back and mediates. Well, today is my middle babe's day and I think she is pretty special. She witty as all get out. She has the best figure, right? (I prayed when I was pregnant with her she would never have to worry about her weight.) Has the best hair. Loves to be good and rarely gives her day and I problems. She also has a resemblance to Angelina Jolie and Reese Witherspoon so how can that be wrong?

Happy #nationalmiddlechildday Sage!

Outer Banks Update






The two youngest girls along with Joe and I headed to the beach this past weekend for our annual get together with Joe's sister. We rolled in later than normal Friday night, had a couple of cocktails and then woke up to overcast and rain. Beautiful right? Well, we made the best of it. The waves were not inviting all weekend though so we headed to the sound beach at Colington. Here are a couple of shots we took. I'll have more later in the week. 

Hope your Tuesday is perfect!

blu Plus+ Love

I smoked for years. There I said it. I was a smoker! As a blogger, sometimes you hide certain things from your audience because it seems taboo. Smoking has definitely become a taboo subject in the last five years.

In the online world it is easy for someone to jump out and say ugly things about who you are because they are hiding behind a computer screen. Take a look at the comment section of many news outlets and you will see exactly what I am talking about. These are unedited comments unlike many of the top blogs out there who delete unkind comments. So much of what you see on blogs is heavily curated pieces of a world you witness only through your computer. What lies behind your screen may tell a much different story.

A couple of years ago, I stopped smoking cigarettes. It was time. All my girls were getting to impressionable ages and I did not want them to succumb to the same habit I had become a slave to. Having a pack of cigarettes on hand was the be-all end-all of my existence. I was tired of it. For one thing, smoking STINKS. You don't realize it when you partake but when you stop, you can smell a smoker from miles away.





The time had come for me to stop and I was doing pretty well doing the whole cold turkey thing until one day I wanted to smoke. I needed it so bad I was willing to give in and fail at what I desired. My hubby looked at me and said, “Let’s get you an e-cig.”

This was the best decision I've made.

I've tried a couple of different e-cigs but I have found the winner with blu PLUS+ e CIGS. With blu PLUS+ when I need a puff, it’s right there. When I don’t, I’m good. I'm not freaking out I don’t have it. It’s always there ready when I need it.




Have you used blu Plus+? It’s super easy to use. The storage system is easy to pop open and the battery is already partially charged when you first purchase it. You just screw on the tank (the flavor) and take a puff. The Xpress Kit is perfect to keep the items together and right now you can get it all for only $14.99 (a $30 value). With the Xpress Kit you get the case, the charging device, the battery, two tanks included along with a free pack of tanks! Pretty amazing deal when you think about how much one pack of smokes will cost you.




Another great thing about blu Plus+ is the online ordering system and the social hub. You can order many blu products online but the flavor tanks are one of my favorite things to order here. You can find many different flavors and strengths only available online and the best thing- FREE SHIPPING!

Also, I’ve used the online help at blucigs.com and they are the friendliest bunch. If anything happens with your blu PLUS+ anytime during the first year, you can return it online and they will ship you out another within the first 48 hours. How amazing is that? 

Right now you can get this EXCLUSIVE Deal: Buy a blu Plus+ Xpress Kit and choose 3 pack tanks for FREE!
