Stupendous Sunday: 11/25/12

I've got BIG news friends!

I quit my job.  Yep.  I did it.  I just couldn't take the constant unhappiness I felt from that place any longer.  Boy have I put my life in a whirlwind!!!!  I still can't decide if I'm totally crazy for possibly sabotaging our home loan at the last second, or a genius for not getting myself stuck at a negative and life draining job just to pay a mortgage.  Let's hope for my sake it's the latter huh?  I gave a pretty hefty notice, so I will still be there for the holidays this year.  What am I some kind of saint????  ugh.

Got any advice for a chicky about to be jobless????  Should I get a house anyways????  ACK!  SO many thoughts going through my brain this week.  So many thoughts......

Here are some captured life moments from the last few weeks:

 Jared took me to Wicked for an early bday present!!!  Huzzah!  Loved it.  I am super duper psyched to see all the festivities going on now.  We went to a gingerbread house contest where the theme was "Once Upon a Time."  The fairy tale gingerbread houses were AWEsome!  I love me some holiday spirit, yes I do.

Well...... here's to the rest of your weekend!



  1. Good for you! Are you going to try to stay in the same field or look for something totally different next?

    1. Hi Thessaly, I'll probably stay in the same field for now, although I am looking for a place that won't suck my soul when I'm there!

  2. Yay, good for you!!! I know it's scary, but I stayed at jobs I hated way to long in the past and quiting was always the best thing. You just know when something isn't a good fit. Even if you don't know what is next (yikes, right!??) something always manages to come around.

    I'm so excited to see some sneak peaks of knitting and holiday crafting above. So fun!

    Also, I loved reading Wicked, but haven't seen the show. I'll bet it was AWESOME!! Happy early birthday to you. :)

    1. Thanks for the bday wishes Erica! Wicked was super duper rad!!! Loved it.

  3. I'm so happy for you! Working at a job you hate is no fun at all! I would probably halt the house hunting for a bit. I quit my life sucking job earlier this year (I gave them a hefty notice as well!) and I have been having the hardest time finding a new one. Id advise to wait and not have to stress about a mortgage..but thats just my experience. I hope you have an easier time finding a new job than I have had!

    1. Well... i'm right there with ya Sylvia. Jobless (yet happy) chicks! I'll cross my fingers that we both find a job soon. But one that we enjoy. :)

  4. Congratulations on quitting your job! Love all of the holiday pictures.

  5. I definitely believe it's the latter. A house, or any other material stuff for that matter, will not keep you happy if it means you have to spend/slave 8 hours a day at a place that makes you miserable. I believe in keeping your fixed costs down to a minimum at all times, just to have the freedom to quit a job, end a lousy relationship, travel or whatever it is you want to do. That's why we're still renting our house, although I have to admit I dream of having my own place...

    I think that you have every opportunity now to find a way - and a job, and a life - that's good for you. Not knowing what's going to happen next means that anything can happen :-)

    You've been very brave and strong to take this step. Well done! :-)

  6. Congratulations on quitting your job, life is way too short for negativity!

    These are beautiful photos, filled with so much fun and cheer. Your knitting looks great too, what are you making?



I love your comments! I read each and every one, and they brighten my day.
