Life Update September 2018

Stephanie Kamp Blog: Life Update September 2018
Hey guys,

Welcome to September and happy Friday! I hope everyone had a great weekend and ready to enjoy their weekend! If you work, I am very sorry and I can relate I know that it can be challenging to work on the weekends. But growing up with a mom who is a nurse, I know that not every job can have weekends off. As someone who now gets weekends off, honestly it's not something I am going to brag about because I personally think it's so rude to brag about it, especially in front of people who don't get the weekends off. 

Anyways, I didn't really mean to start this post off with a rant. I just wanted to give you guys a little life update and let you know what's b

een going on! So about a little over 3 weekends ago I went to Miami to see the Taylor Swift concert as all of you saw and it was absolutely amazing! I wish I could see another show! We also took a trip to Ikea while we were over there and bought a couple things for our house! We found an outdoor coffee table for our back porch in their clearance section and then we also bought a another shelving unit for the closet in our office.

The office is probably the one room in our house that still really needs a lot of work! We have so much stuff from two desks, plenty of crafting and scrapbooking supplies and workout equipment. It's basically like our catchall room. If we don't really have space for it in our rooms or it doesn't really belong anywhere else in the house then it pretty much ends up in the office. We also store all of our wrapping paper and present supplies in the office. There's also twin pull-out loveseat in the room that we use for whenever we have guests stay the night! I am constantly trying to think of new and more storage ideas without making the room seem more cluttered. It's a very big challenge!

Anyways, the following weekend we took a last minute trip to Disney because it was my last weekend before I started my new job which you guys would have read about that too! We went to 3 out of the 4 parks during this trip and it was a lot of fun! I really enjoy going to Disney and I will take  advantage of any opportunity to take a trip up there! So far we don't really have any trips planned back up there but most of the time we plan last minute trips anyways!

And then last weekend we to Tampa to celebrate my grandma's (on my dad's side) 80th birthday! It was really fun! We completely surprised her and she had no idea that any of us were going to be in town. I also got to see my brother and his family because they drove into town for the celebration so that was fun too! On Sunday morning my sister and I drove to Orlando from Lakeland (that's where my grandparents actually live) because we threw a baby shower for one of our friends who is having a baby in mid October! It's her first baby and we are so excite for her! Also, we can't wait to meet her little one!

This weekend will be the first weekend that I haven't gone out of town in a while so I am really looking forward to spending time at home and finding stuff to do around the house and running a few errands. I really enjoy being able to get home before 5 but I have to admit that waking up at 5:30 has been a little bit of a challenge! So far I've been going to bed at like 9:30 which is something I don't really enjoy! I think I just have to figure out how to live with less sleep because I don't really want to come home and be tired and then feel like I'm wasting the rest of my day away! I want to be able to go out and do stuff but at the moment my new sleep schedule has been annoying! I know that with time I will get better but it's just going to take a couple weeks. I used to go to bed at midnight every night and then wake up at 7 am the next morning and it was no problem at all so it would be nice to feel that way again.

Also, so far I am liking my job! It's actually really interesting. A little challenging because there is a lot that I have to learn and know and remember but so far I'm picking everything up pretty well. However, since I don't really know that much yet I get really nervous every time my phone rings because I don't really know how I'm going to help the person on the other end when they probably know just as much as I do so far haha! I can't wait until I know everything but in my interview they pretty much said that I probably won't really know everything until after 6 months! Like I said in an earlier post, I will probably do a full post on my job later, I just feel like I need to be there at least like a month before I can really say too much!

I hope you guys enjoyed this life update! I might do another one later on in the month, it just depends on what's going on and how busy I am. 

Thanks for stopping by!
XO, Steph
