Well Friday was my last day of work at Stampin' Up! I started working there a few months after Brooklynn was born. As a new mom it was very hard on me and I only worked for about 4 months. I did enjoy it and of course loved the discount. After that, I stayed home with Brooklynn for about 2 years. We tried for a baby for a while but that didn't work so it was time to put our papers in and adopt again. Not to mention being winter I was going stir crazy too, & needed some adult interaction. We saved enough money to put down for adoption, but for some reason we kept putting it off. (Now we know why, we just know the Lord has a time for everything.) Anyways... So I had only worked there for a couple months until I found out that I was pregnant. I really enjoyed it and kept going back and forth wether to continue working or just stay home. Well I worked there for 9 months, I know I still have a few months to go. I really wanted some time with Brooklynn and time to prepare for the big change in our lives. I had a great time and met a lot of great people. I wasn't the only one who is leaving Stampin' Up!, within a week of me leaving there were 4 others who gave their notice as well. Also three of us are pregnant, one person just got married and another is about to get married. So we decided to go out and celebrate. We went to Applebees in the District.
Malina and Rachelle. Malina also quit and is getting married this week, and she is hilarious. Rachelle just got married, she is so funny and sweet. (I have known her sister Tammy for 8 years when I worked at Kiddie Kandids)
Lana and Tara. Lana is so very sweet, I loved working with her. Tara is awesome and funny. She is also expecting.(She is also Tammy's sister and it was a couple months into working there that I heard her talking and it just clicked and I asked her if she was related to Tammy.)
Aimee and her husband V. Aimee is so nice, I just started getting to know her better recently. She is also pregnant.
There is me and Whitney. Whitney is so sweet and fun to talk with. She also quit this week.
Jeremy and Kelly Whitney. There is Jer and his wife Kelly. Jeremy is my good friend, and he was my supervisor. I have known him since High school and Ryan has known him forever.
What a fun night to get together to celebrate all our new adventures that are in store for us. I am really going to miss it but I will have my hands full and am so excited to stay home with Berkie and our little peanut.
