April 2017

My new job is working out very well, I'm loving being back in the world of Purchasing. I'm not buying machined components like I thought I was going to, instead I'm back with electronics and getting in to the swing of things.  Sean and I celebrated our 11th year of marriage, dinner at McDonald's after Em and I picked him up at the airport from his work travels! Em spent a few days over her Spring Recess with Grammy and Papa. We had a fun family bowling night with Sean's work! Check out the video!

Anniversary flowers from Sean, love all the purples

Ready to fill up my candy bowl at work, yum!

My To Be Filed File is getting thicker...I'm starting to feel normal again!

Magic in the sky

Em waiting patiently at the Induction of New Members Ceremony for National Junior Honor Society!

In line to shake hands with her principal and current National Junior Honor Society members!

Wow, talk about "over the moon"!

It was such a pretty sight

Proper oral hygiene :)

I do believe that this is the fullest beer I've ever had...Emily was obviously not impressed in the background.

My last day in the office at VRSI and my last bag of stuff. It was a tough decision to leave and I was sad, I was also looking very forward to starting in the Purchasing Department at Humanetics!

My daffodils from Jan, she gets them for me every year around my birthday! They smelled so good!

My 2nd day at my new job and my birthday flowers from my Ma & Pa, they really livened up my cubicle as I hadn't moved much in yet!

This was such a nice surprise on the Friday after I started, my boss brought in snacks and then my team took me out for a Welcome to the Team and Birthday lunch!

Em and i opted for Chinese one night while Sean was traveling...this fed us for several days!

February 2017

February was a whirlwind month! Em had Mid-Winter Recess and got to spend a couple days at Camp Grammy Papa!!

I had my follow up MRI's on the 22nd...the lesions on my brain are stable and there is no evidence of any new lesions! This time, my neurologist ordered a thoracic spine MRI as well, that scan took a bit longer than my cervical spine MRI last time but it was so awesome seeing my spine in all of its' crazy crookedness on the screen (the techs let me have a little peek when we were done!!). No lesions concerning for Multiple Sclerosis were noted on my spine so everything is all kit and kaboodle for now. I will follow up with Dr. Cerghet in 12 months! WOOT WOOOOT!!

Sean traveled to Yuma, AZ on the 27th for work and was there through March 4.

I resigned from my job as the Administrative Assistant-Operations at VRSI on the 27th and my last day in the office was March 10. Shipping/Logistics wasn't my jam and I wanted to pursue my path in Purchasing! I feel it's so important to enjoy what you do for a living and to feel a sense of pride at the end of the work day and I was missing those feelings. The day I resigned I had a firm job offer presented to me and I accepted! I will be working as a Buyer/Expeditor for Humanetics starting on March 20! Humanetics is best known for making crash test dummies and I will be buying machined components, I am so excited for this opportunity and to be back in the world of Purchasing!! It is bittersweet leaving VRSI, I've seen lots of faces from years past and made many new friends and people I enjoy seeing and working with each day. I'm glad I am within walking distance and hope to stop by and visit them on my walks once it gets nicer outside!! Here's to fresh starts!!


Much needed sunshine

Tried ClickList at Kroger for the first time, LOVED how easy it was!

Welcome 2017! Here's January...

In no particular order!

Em hanging out at Grammy & Papa's

Sean camping in Daytona

I WAS going to donate my wedding dress and Em asked to try it on first...we're now keeping it as she may still like it when she gets old enough to wear it at her wedding!  She has been wearing the headband to school!!

Slept with braids in and voila, curls!

Em loves to visit at the Animal Aid Foundation events!

Em and I attended our first Planner Meet Up in East Lansing, it was such a great afternoon hanging out with our girlfriends!

This is called a "Planner Stack", I think this is about 70...ish!

Em and I celebrated New Year's Day with a trip to Barns & Noble and then P.F. Chang's for lunch, yummy!

This man cracks me up!

Sean & Em made pancakes for breakfast, this was Em's!
