Fabulous Friday!

Happy Friday & welcome to another edition of Fabulous Friday! Normally I highlight all the fabulous things I've stumbled across this week. Today's will be a little different as I have some wonderful news to share that totally trumps anything else that would have made this edition.

But first, I have to share a few pictures with you. I'm sure I'll regret this first picture later.

I mentioned a few posts back that I should take a picture of myself at 4:30 in the morning before I leave for the gym. Well, here you go. All my glorious sleepiness captured for you all to look at & shake your head over. Go ahead, it's ok. I shook my head too. At least I smiled for you!

This morning's workout was great & surprisingly the gym was not crowded. I wonder if my resolutioners are falling off the proverbial wagon early this year? Or maybe it was just too freaking cold to get up this morning!

I realized yesterday that I haven't shared any pictures of Mr. Potts & my New Year's Eve celebration. We went to a friend of our's house (who conveniently live 2 miles away) to ring in the new year by playing game, snacking & sipping in our PJ's!

We had the best time & the nice part was that when we got home, we only needed to brush our teeth & wash our faces & go to bed. Lovely!

Mr. Potts wore his IU puffy slippers.

I held up his leg to get a good shot of his slippers.

Ready for my fabulous news?

I'm being promoted!!

I have been working to get to this point for many years and am so thrilled that my hard work has paid off! My boss believes in me & went to her boss to tell him what she wanted. He agreed with her - they both think I'm awesome!!

So, my new title will be Man*ger, Organizati*nal Devel*pment (or something along those lines).
Sorry for the stars, I just don't want this to pop up when someone googles that title.

I'm so freaking excited! Ecstatic!!

Happy Friday everyone!!!
What have you happened upon that is fabulous this week - or have any of you had something fabulous happen?

Taylor @ Jimmy Choos and a Baby Too said...

Congratulations on your promotion! Hoe exciting! Also I give you kudos for getting up at 4:30 to work out every morning...and I use to work at a gym and I think it was usually around the end of January that people started giving up on the resolutions so maybe when its freezing they give up earlier!
