Hello! I am Erin, a 36-year-old who loves dogs, shopping, parties and Pinterest. I am married to my soulmate, Jason. We have 2 fur babies, Bear (a black lab) & Butters (a yellow lab) and live in Central New Jersey near the Jersey Shore.
I worked in Finance for over 12 years. I left a good job to try something new that didn’t work out but found a job I liked as a District Manager helping people start their own businesses shortly after. For 4 years I saw amazing things. People were taking control of their lives and incomes. I got laid off from that job in April of 2012 and with my severance, I wasn’t too worried about finding a job. I applied to some jobs but basically took the summer off to get projects done around the house (read: major decluttering!). Once August rolled around, I starting applying to more positions, confident that I would have a job by Christmas. Surprise! That did not happen. Thank God for Ebay – I sold a lot of my stuff from my “projects” and that is pretty much how I funded our Christmas presents. So, now it is April of 2013 - still no job. I did get one call last month for a pre-interview but no dice. It doesn’t make sense to worry about it since it will all fall into place. And so, I keep applying. That is where Sweet Erindipity comes in.
While I admit I am not a professional writer, I've wanted to start a blog to share my findings, parties, crafts, and anything else for some time. And so…Sweet Erindipity was born! Sweet Erindipity is my personal memoir and lifestyle blog where I will be writing about organization, food, beauty, fitness, party planning, and anything else that strikes my fancy. I love throwing parties and planning events. I even planned my own wedding for less than $12K! I love an organized home. I have a real passion for baking, although my hips do not appreciate it. I have loved beauty since I was a little girl. I was obsessed with lip gloss by the time I was 10. I am an Avon Representative, and love my business. I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism 2 years ago and am still trying to get it right. I am also a Pinterest addict, so don’t be surprised if I try some things out from there on here as well.
