Happy, happy Saturday :)

This week has been pretty fantastic, so far. (And that's pretty excellent, considering it's almost over!)

Did you all notice the new buttons on the right sidebar? What do you think?

I know you all are probably wondering what my last post was about, but I was very excited to tell you all about it (yes, that means it's a good thing) but I don't want to do a post until I truly know more details. I think that should be around Tuesday evening, so look for a post sometime this week!! I will, however, share some pretty big, and awesome news with you towards the end of this post ;)

Here in Cincinnati, the weather has been absolutely beautiful for the past week. Warm enough for just a light jacket, and today I wore capris and TOMS (thanks, Kate!) and got lots of awesome compliments on my tattoos :) I love those! We also went thrifting today, and I found Harry Potter Scene It? for SIX BUCKS. This is awesome because I was looking for it around Christmas on Amazon, and coundn't find it for under $80, so woo!! But, I am so eager for spring to get here, so this has been pretty fantastic! Spring means: graduating from college, Bonnaroo (?!), and sunshine! 

Also, this week, I got to take Guillermo on tons of four-legged walks, and let him play in the backyard for a while while I read on my Kindle:

Speaking of my Kindle, I am finally finished with all six and a half seasons of Grey's Anatomy (thank you, Netflix) and have gotten back to reading. Sometimes when I read a huge series like Harry Potter, I have to take a break from it and do something a little less mind-consuming. Grey's was perfect for that, but I am back to reading, again! I am currently immersed in one of the books from my list, Chasing Harry Winston by Lauren Weisberger. 

Now for that big, awesome news! You all know that I work at PetsMart, right? Well, I do. I also work at Family Video, but that's beside the point. I have worked at PetsMart as a bather in the groom shop since a little before Thanksgiving, so that makes almost three months. This past week, I got my first review, an itty, bitty raise, AND they asked me to be a dog trainer! This is exciting because: I was told that this doesn't normally happen for people who are a) so new to the store and b) bathers. AND this is also exciting because I don't get a raise, but I do keep my hourly rate, plus I'll be making 20% commission on any classes I sell. This probably doesn't interest you in the slightest, but I am so, so, SO excited to do this, and a little bit nervous. I love animals, you guys know that. And I can't wait to combine my teaching skills and my love for puppies into one great job. 

So that's my week! I am pretty sure I had much more to talk about with you guys, but I can't remember all the ideas that were flooding around in my head, so this is what you get!

Happy weekend, everyone! <3 S
