Birthdays, Egg Hunts & a Job Interview...OH MY!

I've missed ya 'all! I know I have some explaining to do, so here goes.
I wrapped up my mini series on the Lean In movement that has swept across America, and coincidentally the following week, a job within my company came open.
A job I've had my eye on for a couple years now.
After I peed my pants with excitement & threw up in my mouth from anxiety, I began preparing.
My week was spent in resume mode, lots of phone time with a few of my mentors and lots of wine. And for the record, I do realize my wine guzzling drinking is mentioned in every one of my posts.
So when you're saying your prayers, please send one up to Jesus for me because if you're reading this Monday morning, I'm currently interviewing.
I know, I picked a great day to interview.

You got the job...APRIL FOOLS DAY SUCKA!
Today also marks the 5 year anniversary of my handcuffing & arrest in my sorority house lobby for pulling fire alarms my senior year of college. And sadly, the cops did not mention April Fools
day to us. But that's for another day & another post.
Well enough of the serious stuff, lets move on from handcuffing to babies.
This handsome little man (who will always be a baby in my eyes) turned 7 last Friday.

So our Saturday was filled with a birthday party & cuddle time with the new babies
in both Jon & I's family.

After the party, we swung by Jon's sisters house to see the handsome Mr. Wyatt.

Sunday was filled with lots of sunshine & lots of family time in celebration of my main man, Jesus.

And boy did I have fun with my new camera.
I mean, how could you not love photographing these faces?!

And yes. Jon sat at the kids table.

As if you haven't figured it out by now, we are both big kids at heart.

One of the best things about this weekend was FINALLY being able to enjoy our lake!
We moved into our home last September & I frickin' swear its snowed for

Jon started Easter with an early morning fishing sesh with his pops.

And we ended with a stroll around our cove in our little pedal boat.
I hope all of you aren't in chocolate bunny coma as I am right now. 
But I do know at least one chocolate bunny eatin' foo who will have super soft lips because it's time to announce the winner of my EOS lip balm giveaway. 
And yet again, I have to preface this with a promise that I did not rig it.
Drumroll please......
The winner is.
My very own mother.

Seriously Mom?
I'll buy you some frickin' lip balm for Mother's Day.
Love you big kiss.

EEEE good luck! I'm sure you're killing it in your interview as we speak.

I'd like to be pedal boating right now instead of sitting at my desk and eating lunch.

Seriously. I had a job interview yesterday too *cue Twilight Zone music*. This last 24 hours has been trying to say the least, as I was offered the position. The whole time I was telling myself 'you're going to sit at the damn table Jami'. LOL. Good luck with the job Anne - you got this 'ish!

I LOVE the bunny ears on the little girl, is that your niece? So cute!

Food plays an important role in paphos car hire' tourist industry with the most convenient ways to actually tour a city. While unemployment declined in most states between 2010 and 2011, Mississippi's actually rose 0.
The spectacular diversity of this region are the centrepiece of what will surely soon be a huge destination for
British golfing holidaymakers. The property in paphos
car hire, Cyprus. And no trip to the business' inevitably non-mobile-friendly website.

Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found
a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic
but I had to tell someone!
