What I’ve been up to lately…

1. I saw my first celeb here!! I knew it was bound to happen eventually (I have GOT to start bringing my camera with me!) but i didn’t think so soon. I dropped my friend off to get a mani/pedi a Venetian Nails in Green Hills, while i went over to the mall to pick up some applications. Mid-application, she texted me saying “Kellie Pickler is here! You have to come see!” So i rushed through the rest of the application, hurried across the parking lot, hoping she would still be there! Sure enough she was so i saw her! Yeah, she isn’t that famous, but hey…it’s a start! She was being filmed for something…while getting a pedicure…and had a little dog in her lap. She was there for the entire time i ended up getting a manicure after i fell to the sales pressure from the woman at the front desk (my nails look so good!), and she left as they were drying. She walked out so fast that the best i could do was get a picture of the back of her as she was leaving on my phone. Anyways, it was a fun surprise!

2. Last night, i passed up going with my roommates to the  Yogurt Oasis downtown. It’s a hot-spot i hear because it’s fat free yogurt, with a ton of different toppings, and it’s sold by weight. I went there the other night and thought it was ok, but passed going again since i have no job thus no funds. Guess what celeb i missed out on seeing? Diana Degarmo! Remember her from American Idol? Top 2 with Fantasia? Again, she’s really not that cool…but hey, she’s more famous than me!

3. I’ve decided I’m going to bring my camera with me wherever i go, so when i see a celeb, i can snap some pics, then sell them to the gossip mags…make some cash! Nah, but that would be awesome. If only i could be a paparazzi!

4. I got 2 job calls yesterday…i haven’t gotten any so far! And as always, they jobs always seem to all come in at the same time. I interviewed at one today, and have one tomorrow. We’ll see! But at least I’m starting to get calls back…it gets frustrating to keep applying and then get nothing in response!

5. I hung out with one of my favorite people yesterday. She recently moved from Memphis to Chattanooga, so she too is unemployed and has lots of free time. I haven’t seen her in a year, so it was fun to catch up. There is nothing better than spending quality time with good friends. I’m excited to explore Chattanooga soon! I’ve never been and i hear it’s a great city.

So that’s what I’ve been up to…looking for a job and getting settled into a new city! 🙂

Here is the awesome video that my friend Erin made…she documented the entire ride from Vermont to Nashville! (who doesn’t love 20 hours in the car?) I was so thankful to have her along for the ride…it was a long trip! But so fun! Check it out…

I’ve been reading the blog Bring The Rain for awhile now. The story behind it is so sad. The family is so beautiful. And yet it is often a source of encouragement. It’s a blog worth reading.

The latest post, which i just read, was just….

Well, it brought on some serious tears.

You can read the latest post here.

I’m on a serious job hunt here in Nashville! And I’m running out of ideas of where to look for jobs…eek!

If you know of any open positions in the Nashville area, please let me know!

I am looking jobs like: administrative assistant, marketing assistant, customer service rep, receptionist….(I have a BSBA in Marketing)

I would love to nanny…so if you know of any families looking, i am interested! And if you need a babysitter, i can do that too! 🙂

I know God moved me to Nashville for a reason, and i fully trust that something will come along….I’m just praying that it will be soon!

but this was a slightly embaressing display at the Olympics….

My friend Erin flew up from TN the week before i moved to help me pack, hang out, and drive back to TN with me. We spent an entire day in Boston so i could get my last haircut on Newbury St. (Salon Marc Harris is the best!) and say goodbye to my favorite city. It was the most beautiful day and we took some great pictures!

Things i will miss in Boston….gelato, Mike’s Pastries, mob watching in the North End, shopping on Newbury St., Coach at Copley, swan boat rides in the gardens, seafood at Legal Seafood’s, pizza at Bertucci’s…

Callie the cat lives at my family’s store in Vermont. She was hired a little over a year ago, along with her sister Moxie, to be the official mice patrol….and most of the time they do their job. It has taken her a year to have enough courage to wander out into the store from the warehouse where she spends much of her time. Most of the employees don’t really like the cats, but Callie is sweet, and she needed to be loved so i adopted her. I’m not even a big cat fan (dogs are better), but i spent time with her when i could while working, giving her treats, petting and playing with her. I taught her not to be afraid to venture out! She is much nicer than Moxie who is full of big attitude. These are pictures of my goodbyes to Callie just before i hoped in the car to move south…i wanted to bring her with, but I’m not sure how potty trained she is….lol. She is just too cute!
