Well, today's weather is a 180 from last week. It's certainly a "Carolina Blue" sky today and a beautiful sunrise this morning which made me think of this Corey Smith song. Enjoy!

To update you on the job front, I’m moving to a new building next week. So the last week has been full of going through and updating all my files, packing and training my current co-worker on what projects she’s taking over while at the same time trying to do my new job. I’m blessed to have a fabulous husband who has listen to me whine over the last 22 days.
A bright spot in all of this mess is a “Gender Revealing” party that I planned last week for our friends Elizabeth and Marc. I saw on idea and thought, well I can totally pull it off. The theme of the party is that the guest where what color they think that the baby is (pink for girls; blue for boys) and then the couple reveals the answer at the event.
A fun way to reveal it is to make cupcakes with the gumball of the correct color in the center. Then your guests eat the cake at the same time. Since, I didn’t want to find out if they were having a boy or a girl before the party; I decided to take it up a level by having our bakery bake two cakes – one pink and one blue – and have Elizabeth call in the order for the correct cake. Then later that night, at the party, Elizabeth and Marc cut the cake to reveal the big news. It was cute and best of all, the bakery got really into it.
Even the kids got into the action.
It's a girl!

Well 2010 knew how to come in with a bang. I found out yesterday that there were layoffs planned at my office. Fortunately, I was not laid off but my department was dissolved. We lost one employee and the other is focusing on internal marketing and I was moved to another department. To be honest, I’m still numb by the changes and slept maybe 2 hours last night. While I think the move will be fine – the department head is nice and I enjoy a challenge, it’s just the fact that life is indeed changing and its happening fast.
