Unemployed Chic

This is how I am referring to myself.. Since this is Day 1 with NO JOB!! YAY! I do have some exciting news... Lots has been happening (I guess that is what happens when you don't blog...)

  • I am a finalist for my job!! Not only is it the job that I applied for, they bumped me up to run the entire association. I am so excited, this is exactly what I want. Hard, challenging and fun work!!!! Here is the odd glitch--- I have my interview with the board next week and then dinner afterwards.. Except, I am pretty sure it is both of us having dinner. Any advice? Anyone been through this?
  • I sold my first cupcake order last week! One of my friend's moms was having a party and found out it was a guests birthday, so she ordered 30 cupcakes from me!!
  • I am in Texas for 10 days!! MY best friend is getting married on Saturday and since I am Unemployed Chic.. I thought why not an extended visit!!
  • I am an Aunt again!!! I have a new 3 week old niece. She is adorable...

Today is Best Friends Day! So reach out to the people closest to you and let them know how much they mean to you!!

Did I say One Interview... I meant Two!!

Hi Ladies!!! Well, week one of my 4 weeks is almost over! Last night I received a call from the other company I applied to and had an impromptu interview over the phone. I was less than prepared for this, but managed to b.s. my way through, ahhh how I love political jobs. But, I guess I was ok, they are having me come in on Friday at 4pm, yes TOMORROW!! So, now I have a Friday interview and a Wednesday interview!!

This weekend is a big one! Mr. Bliss is graduating from lawschool on saturday afternoon. After three long years, I feel like our life can begin (granted he passes the bar)..

I just have to rant about Danny Gokey not making the final two. What is going?? He is so much better than Kris, ugh.... Guess I will be cheering for Adam Lambert.

With a Sigh of Relief...

Happy Saturday! Other than maybe having to start building an Ark here on the East Coast, I closed a horrible chapter in my life yesterday and opened a new one today!

Well, after months of being unhappy, this week grew substantially worse at work. So, I gave notice yesterday. I gave 4 weeks notice, I know this is alot, but I do have substantial responsibilites and do not want to leave with enemies. I do not have a job yet (which is stressful), but I have a great interview on the 20th and I have a wonderful Mother who is supporting my decision. After getting over the nauseous feeling, haha, I woke up feeling refreshed.

Hopefully, my blogging will be more stable (since I am currently getting an F) and my life will be happy!!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!

Cinco De Mayo!

Hello All! I am sorry for my lack of posting. It has been crazy. So much has been going!

Mr. Bliss is HOME! He took his last final on Saturday!!! I am so excited!

I was in Dallas for a 4-day weekend. I was a bridesmaid in one of my sorority sisters’ wedding. It was so great to go home and see my friends, I live TOO far away! We ate great food, drank too much champagne and had a wonderful weekend.

On the job front.. I have an interview May 20th!! Send me good thoughts, as I start to prepare. I am so excited. I really hope this all works out.

Since, so many people commented on the dress.. I did buy it and I should have listened. Very cute for a pool dress, but has NO shape. I returned it!

Hope everyone has a happy Tuesday. I will be catching up on everyone’s blogs, I promise!!!

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Job Update

I was contacted by one of the companies that I applied for today!! They had me take an online personality test. when I competed the test, I replied to his email. He responded very quickly thanking me for my promptness and that he already received my results, which were quite impressive (his words).. YAY!! Hopefully, I will get tot he next step!

Well, it was a weird day weather wise. I was opening my garage door and ice pellets flew in. Yes, people ICE... This Texan does not appreciate ice in April. haha, oh well!

Anyone else watching Idol? All I have to say is what the heck are these ladies wearing???

Hello everyone! I am so sorry for the lack of posting, it was one of those weeks (oh wait, that was my excuse last week).. Well, actually everyday is one of those days with my new boss. So after work yesterday, I decided to buy myself a little something...
Stuart Weitzman Sandals!! YAY! I love them! So, hubby and I have been talking about mental health, haha... Well, job related mental health and I am considering just quitting without having another job. I just dont know how much more I can take. I probably fight back tears 3x a day. I just dont think it is worth it anymore. Has anyone gone through something like this?

Beauty and Brains

So, we all know Angie Harmon is gorgeous!! But I am a proud Republican today. Proud to have at least ONE ally in Hollywood (I know there are maybe 3, haha).. And proud that she spoke her mind and said what everyone has been wanting to say. I like Angie (we are def first name basis now) do not agree with one thing Pres. Obama is doing. It has nothing to do with his race and everything to do with the fact that he is LIBERAL.. You can read the article below..

Angie Harmon is not afraid to come out and say she doesn’t like how President Obama is handling the job — but she’s sick of having to defend herself from being deemed a racist.
"Here's my problem with this, I'm just going to come out and say it. If I have anything to say against Obama it's not because I'm a racist, it's because I don't like what he's doing as President and anybody should be able to feel that way, but what I find now is that if you say anything against him you're called a racist," Harmon told Tarts at Thursday’s Los Angeles launch of the new eyelash-growing formula, Latisse. "But it has nothing to do with it, I don’t care what color he is. I’m just not crazy about what he's doing and I heard all about this, and he’s gonna do that and change and change, so okay … I'm still dressing for a recession over here buddy and we've got unemployment at an all-time high and that was his number one thing and that's the thing I really don't appreciate. If I'm going to disagree with my President, that doesn't make me a racist. If I was to disagree with W, that doesn't make me racist. It has nothing to do with it, it is ridiculous." for full article

Interview.. Follow Up

I was over at my friend's in-laws house last night chatting excitedly about the job I applied for!! And her father in law mentioned he used to be heavily involved with the organization. He called and sent an email (with my resume attached) to one of the big wigs in D.C.!!! Yay!! It was so amazing of him to offer to do this.. I have a good feeling about this job... I just need to keep thinking POSITIVE thoughts!!

I see some cupcakes in his future!!

Application Is In!

"It's Pink and scented" "I think it add a little something extra"

Well, I finally got off my self loathing butt and applied for a new job. I am really excited about it. It is a great Association and it is more tailored to my industry which, I LOVE..

If you don't know, I am a political person who has been working in a law firm's marketing dept.. We got a new director about 6 weeks ago who is TERRIBLE..

Keep your fingers crossed that I get an interview, it would be an AWESOME experience!!!!

Now, hopefully all I need is an interview outfit. Maybe...

Friday, March 20, 2009


So after my pity party last night, haha.. I decided I should do something about it. Yesterday was just one of those days when everything crashed in at the same time..

Can anyone recommend a good book about the Mental Side of Dieting? I thought maybe this will help me focus...

My Serious Post....

I need some major therapy... I just can not get on the wagon to diet and workout. I have been going at this for YEARS and I lose a little and then I stop. I usually dont gain it back, but I stop losing. Then I start again and the cycle continues. But, this time I GAINED.. with my foot injury (which is finally feeling better, not heels better, but I will take it) I couldnt work out and I ate like total crap.. Now, I am paying for it. I am totally miserable about it.. I will be good for a day and then stress will get to me and I will crave and give in. It is like I have no self control for making bad food choices. Then I end up feeling worse than before. This week has been the worst, I was getting it from my personal life and professional life.

My hubby is frustrated with me (not that he thinks I should lose weight, but he wants me to be happy) he tries to encourage me and in turn I cheat and then dont tell him what I really eat when he isnt around.

It is a horrible cycle and all of you who go through this, I feel for you. HELP.. Anyone gone through this and overcome it. It is almost an addiction. I dont drink or smoke, I EAT...

Hope everyone is having a better week than me. At least Mitt Romney is on Larry King!! I love you Mitt!!!!

Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred

So, I know a lot of lovely ladies have been blogging about Jillian Michael's 30 day Shred. But, I have to tell you my review!

I bought it yesterday and I did it after work today..

Oh My Goodness! It is amazing, the workout is exactly what I have been looking for and I love Jillian Michaels. Usually the message from the perfectly sized instructor is "You will feel so good after this" and "Think how proud you will be", etc.. and maybe these messages work for some people. But I do messaging for a living and you need to be straight to the point and Jillian Michaels is! Her message.. if you want a great body "You have to earn it".. I love it.. really makes you think..
