The Peak and The Pit and A Giveaway!

A lot going on today!

The Peak: 
Today is my sweet baby brother's 15th birthday! I have loved this boy like my very own from the minute he was born. Happy birthday, Lucas. I am so very proud of you.

The Pit:
Well possibly the worst. Today I am a meeting with Human Resources to see if will still have a job after 11 years of service. The bank I work for was bought by another bank, and the acquisition will become final after this quarter. We've known about it since late last year, but job status meetings only started yesterday. A few of my coworkers have received notice that they are to be severanced; I hope I won't meet the same fate today, but regardless I am happy to finally know for sure either way. It's been a long few months of rumors and speculation.

And now the fun!
I am taking part in a giveaway, my first one!, with some pretty amazing ladies.  Check out Holly @ Hey, Hollywood, Sara @ Social Sara, and Niki at Glossy Blonde. You could win some pretty cool prizes.  Good luck to you! (And good luck to me too, huh? I'll keep you updated on the work front.)


  1. Eeep! I will keep my fingers crossed for you! Happy thoughts! ♥

  2. I wish you lots of luck! Hopefully you'll hear good news!

  3. Good luck with everything! That definitely sucks, eek.

  4. I have my fingers crossed for you, Ami. I hope you get good news!
    & Happy Birthday, Lucas! He is super handsome! :)

  5. I hate that there's so much uncertainty on the job front. You've been such an asset and so loyal to them, it really would be their loss. On a brighter note though, happy birthday to your not so baby brother! I hope his day is amazing.

  6. I have been laid off; TWICE. It stinks but the severance helps! Keep us posted

  7. Hey cute girl! Found you from Kelly’s blog @ Eat Yourself Skinny & couldn’t help but say hi! Great blog you have here keep up the fantastic work. I am so happy to meet you and I can’t wait to follow along. Come say hi anytime if you like. I am having two fun giveaways if you want to enter to win.
