Melody Release and Other Shiny Historical Things

This past weekend, I took a break from my job. I'm enjoying it but it is literally swallowing me whole. I'm on salary for the first time ever so there is less of a clear cut start and stop time for me. I can show up as early as two hours before the official start of the day, stay as long as I want, and then take things home if I wish. The problem is that I haven't exactly worked out a good system for forcing myself to leave in a timely manner. The to-do list never seems to get shorter because as soon as I cross one thing off, five more get added.

But I took my break and headed down to the Orlando store to pick up Melody. We made a weekend trip out of it, wandering around the Florida Mall, getting sushi (well I watched my husband eat sushi while I ate a marshmallow "egg roll"-you can't eat raw fish while pregnant), going to Downtown Disney. We watched a movie where they also served us dinner-I had the best donuts ever. I really needed this trip.

Anyways, here are all the cool things I saw while down there!

I'm Here! I'm Alive!

Wow, its been over a month since I've posted anything! Almost two months! For everyone still checking and reading this blog, thanks for sticking with me!

I wanted to get on here and assure you all that I'm still alive. I start a new job today that I am super excited about, I am currently 18 weeks along in my pregnancy (second trimester) and starting to show/outgrow all of my regular clothes, and doing super well.

I also received my stuff from the military movers so I should be starting to post again soon! Once I straighten everything and get my dolls on display, my life will return to normal. This will be the most demanding job I've ever had (first full time job!)  and of course I have the pregnancy but I do intend to start posting again, likely starting this week.
