My apologies for being AWOL. It has been a crazy few weeks. It’s funny – time really does fly. I would swear it has only been a week since my last post but it has been more like 3! Time to make sure my blog time is in my calendar. A few weeks ago, I starting consulting with a great person that has been taking up some of my time. More to come on that at a later date.
I had also been getting ready for our trip to the Outer Banks in North Carolina, or OBX as many know it. My husband’s family gets a house together and we chill out for a week. It was a great time. The weather was a little sketchy at first – it was chilly when we got there. But it ended up being in the mid-70’s all week – perfect for the beach and heated pool. We stayed in a house called Malaikas.
A few years ago when I was invited to Jay’s relative Nichole’s baby shower, I was so excited. I had always wanted to do a diaper cake, and there was the perfect chance! I looked up a bunch of them on the internet to see what to do. A lot of them had similar instruction, just different decoration. It looked easy enough, so I gave it a try.
And here it is…
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. (more…)
