The Bargain Blonde is back bishes!

Did you miss me? Because I've missed all of you terribly! My life has just not been complete without blogging. Not only have I obviously not been writing blog posts, but I also have not read any of your blogs either. Three weeks was a long time to be blog world MIA but the time away was much needed. You know, since I moved 3 states away and started a new job (which I LOVE by the way).

I don't really even know where to begin. I kind of feel like I'm going to need more than one post to catch all of you up, so I guess I'll just get to it and start at the beginning.

Last you heard from me, I was in Albuquerque halfway through my drive from Dallas to Las Vegas. Well, I'm sure you gathered that I made it here in one piece. The 20 hour drive was not as bad as you might imagine. I listened to a lot of Miranda Lambert and Zac Brown Band, which made the time go by a lot faster. This was my favorite song from the trip. It really resonated with me and all the emotions I was digesting. 

I got in town on a Friday night and my first day at my new job was the following Monday. I didn't do much that weekend but unpack my clothes at my BFFs house (where I'm staying until the end of October) and obvi shop for my first day of work outfit! It seriously felt like the first day of school. I was scared to be the "new girl" but I had nothing to be scared about. Everyone I work with has been so welcoming, which has made this transition a smooth one. 

I've only had one really hard day, which was last Monday. I probably cried for five hours straight. It was my nephew Reese's fifth birthday and I was just so upset that I had to miss it. I will post more about Reesey and my last few weeks before i moved in a separate post because I want to keep this post upbeat.

Other than Reese's birthday, I've been absolutely loving my job, my new coworkers, the city and playing roomie with Kristina (the gracious BFF who is letting me shack up in their guest room). Hi Kristina! In fact, we just got done watching Breaking Amish, a new show on TLC. Super fascinating and I highly suggest you watch. Also, we watched certified cray Teresa Guidice and gang on the RHNJ finale. Goodness gracious, I can't wait for that reunion ... It looks like a real doozy. God bless Andy Cohen and the rest of the masterminds over at Bravo for turning out some seriously amazeballs television.

Speaking of TV, like blogging, I've had zero time to watch my outrageous amount of shows. Again, so much to get caught up on. I did get an iPad, which is what I'm typing this blog post on (can't figure out how to add photos). I got Hulu+ on here too, but it doesn't have most of my favorite shows. It does, however, have a Korean Drama TV category. Annoying. I need American reality. Heeellllloooo. 

OK, I've rambled on for long enough. I am so happy to be back blogging and I cant wait to get caught up with you ladies. I feel like I'm probably leaving a lot of important things off this post, so leave any questions in the comments. We've got this whole week to play catch-up! Also, someone please let me know how to add photos to a blog post using an iPad. I don't want to read a blog post without pictures so I know you don't want to. Help meeeeee.

  19. I'm a freak when it comes to getting a new job. So scary for me! I hate being new and not knowing what I'm doing. I'm sure you'll be fine in no time. I'm watching and loving Breaking Amish too! I didn't watch it last night-saving it for tonight. I LOVE Vegas. It's a cool weekend getaway from So Cal where I live. I can't imagine actually living there b/c it's just been a vacay spot for me.

  20. i love seeing all of this love you are getting!

  21. I have absolutely no idea how to use the iPad to blog since I've never done it so I can't help with that =\

    I'm glad you took some time off from the blog! You just made a big change and I think it's important to take it all in and adjust because that's your life - your blog is just a way to chronicle it. Though, you better catch up on all those TV shows - priorities, woman! ;)

  22. Sooooo glad you are back! Missed you, hooker.

    And I desperately need an iPad. Just so I can watch Korean tv. That is all.

    Can't wait to read more about living in Sin City.

  24. It's sickening how little I've talked to you over these past few weeks. SICKENING!

    1. Did you seriously type this entire post on an iPad, meaning that you had to chicken-peck each letter? Damn, girl. Impressive.

    2. Sweet Reese! More on that later. I know you miss him so dearly. Thank goodness for facetime and phones and all things electronic. And holidays.

    3. I'm so pissed I missed Breaking Amish. Like, PISSED.

    4. I'm outrageously behind on my tv shows and it is no good. I've been working into the evenings and busier than usual at nights, and also I'm almost done reading Gone Girl, which is making me want to do NOTHING ELSE. You should get it! You can read books on iPads, right?

    MISS YOU!
