Finally some good news!!


If you follow me on Instagram you may have already heard the good news: My husband just got a big promotion at work!  We have been waiting and hoping that he would find something out of the department that he is currently in.  He just has to finish out this month and train someone to replace him before he can start the new position on April 1st.  We couldn't be happier!!

We decided to go out to eat to celebrate, no where fancy, but I decided to dress up a teeny bit, just for him.  We went to Primanti Brother's, which is a famous Pittsburgh restaurant.  You may remember me talking about their sandwiches before.  Sooo good!  We wanted to go somewhere to have a celebratory drink.



I was also given an accent nail from Margaret at Jamberry Nails to try out.  I think I am the only person on the planet that had yet to try them out.  I don't normally paint my nails, but I was really intrigued by these.  She sent me a really pretty floral print, that just so happened to match my outfit. 
I am the absolute worst at painting my nails, so don't judge!!  It's weird, I can paint portraits but I can't paint my nails.  It doesn't make much sense to me!

I also got my Passionfruit ads up over the weekend, so I am now offering different sized sponsorship opportunities on my sidebar.  Since I am just starting out the prices are very low and reasonable; AND if that's not enough, I am offering 25% off my ad spots until the end of the month with the code: SPONSORJM

  4. Thanks so much! I can't wait for him to get out of the position he's in right now, it's just too dangerous. This position is a little bit farther from home but at least I know he won't be walking through dangerous areas all day

  5. Congrats on your husband's promotion! That's very exciting! We are exact opposites when it comes to painting: I can paint my nails but absolutely cannot paint anything else! Ha!

    Congratulations to your husband! So exciting for him and your family! It sounds like dinner and celebratory drinks were definitely in order, and this is the perfect outfit. I love black and burgundy together. You look beautiful!

  7. Thank you so much!! I am so proud and excited for him. He's going to be a lot less stress at work and he is out of the dangerous environment he was in before so that makes me really happy. I'm a worrier.

  8. Thanks so much! Maybe if I keep practicing with my nails, I will get better. I am terrible at painting my right hand! haha! It was probably laughable to watch me try to do it. The left hand wasn't so bad (because I'm right handed).

  27. Thank you so much Lauren! You are the sweetest <3 That is my favorite sweater for the winter. It's so cozy and soft. I think I actually wore it in one or two other outfit posts already. haha! I may have to do a remix post one day! lol

  28. Thanks Rhea!! I have been trying to wear more skirts lately. Maybe it will force the Spring weather to come sooner?!

  29. Thank you so much Kelsey! I really appreciate it!

  30. Thank you! I can't wait for him to start the new position. I have been wearing so much burgundy and black this winter. So I was happy when they picked marsala as the color of the year because I was already wearing it. lol

  31. Thank you so much! I completely forgot that I bought this skirt around Christmas time and never wore it! I'm definitely going to have to start reaching for it more often

  32. Thanks so much! I had to laugh at myself while trying to paint my nails. It should be such an easy task but I was really struggling! haha!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I absolutely LOVED the floral print one, so I definitely tried that one first. I am saving the other one for when I feel brave enough to paint my nails again. hahaha! Thank you so much again for sending them to me. They are so cool!

  34. Thank you so much! I am really excited for him. He was getting pretty miserable in his last position. I hope this one works out better for him.

  35. Thank you so much girl! I really appreciate it! I really ended up loving this outfit. It was the perfect mixture of cozy and date night. haha!

  36. Thanks so much! That is so sweet! I normally hate wearing anything that shows my knees, I've always been so weird about them. lol! My dad used to tease me and say that I had knobby knees so I blame him! lol

    ReplyDelete
  37. Thank you so much! I can't wait for him to start! Fingers crossed that he loves it!

  38. Thank you so much Jackie! I LOVE Primantis, it's the best place for a quick beer and their nachos are soooo good.

  39. Thanks so much Leanna! Passionfruit ads ended up being way easier to set up than I thought it was going to be, so I'm excited to see how this goes!

  40. Thank you Kasi!! I am trying to do the same thing, bring more skirts and dresses out of my closet. I always seem to overlook them in the winter, but it's starting to get a teeny bit warmer so maybe if I start wearing the skirts it will bring the warm weather out sooner?! haha, a girl can hope, right?

    ReplyDelete
  41. Thank you so much Shannon! I can't believe I forgot that I had this skirt, I'm going to have to bring it out more often!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Thank you so much! I really thought the Jamberry nails were cool. I only had the accent nails so I had to paint the other ones, but if I bought one of their full sets them I wouldn't have to worry about painting my nails and that would make it even better! lol

    ReplyDelete
  43. Thanks so much Charnele! I completely forgot that I had it hidden in my closet! I'm going to have to start reaching for it more
