Life Update: Winter Is Here, Job Stuff

First of all, sorry for missing my Inspiration to Creation post yesterday, but I started getting a bit sick on Sunday and I ended up staying home in bed Monday, so I never ended up getting that post written.  Now, on to a (small) life update:

This picture is from this past weekend. Brad, Austin, and I visited the Ice Castles in Lincoln, NH. I am planning a scrapbook layout or two with these photos and will share more soon. This was an amazing winter exhibit. I definitely want to go back next year, at night, to see the ice all lit up. While we were so far up in NH, we took the time to drive over to Jackson and go ice skating at Nestlenook Farm. Brad and I had been there during a little romantic trip we had a few years ago, and it was fun to take Austin.

Austin has been doing really well with his skating lessons at our local ice rink, so we thought it would be fun to take him out skating outside of class. He did awesome!

I haven't been reading as much as last year, for sure, but I did finish my 4th book recently. Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover. It was SO good. Very emotional, and totally made me cry. I definitely recommend this one!

We've been doing pretty well on our meal planning, though we have had a couple of evenings out to eat lately. We're doing terrible with our plans to eat healthy and exercise though. Stupid cold winter making you want to eat comfort foods and curl up in bed every night.

Work is...interesting. Our tiny company was purchased last year by a really big company, and as with a lot of acquisitions, people are starting to move on to other things. Because of someone leaving, I was able to be promoted! Yay! I've been with my company for over 9 years and as our department has dwindled from over a dozen people to just three, I've taken a lot of responsibilities I was not initially hired for on. It feels really good for all that hard work to be recognized. I am thankful for the promotion, even if I don't know yet what the future holds for me.

Not a whole lot else going on around here, much of the same old, same old. Sometimes that just feels nice. :)
