I’ve been missing I know, but I’m back ….

A few things have happened over the last month or two that had me running around like a chicken with my head cut off, but things are about to simmer down. Kind of.

I got a new job! It was a long process but I got it! Tomorrow I will start my new job at a think tank in DC as a “Senior Media Associate.” Fancy schmancy right?

Also, I turned 30. Sigh… But it was a perfect day thanks to my fiance and friends.  It started out with brunch with the soon to be hubby and then he took me on a shopping spree for new work clothes.  I’m a lucky, lucky lady.

Below is a photo of us celebrating later that night at Jaleo (my favorite restaurant).

In other news — just to add to the chaos —  we are moving. My commute is about to change A LOT but it will be worth it.

I’m off work today (Happy Birthday George Washington) so I plan to do some packing, and blogging. I came up with this killer “Bang Bang Cauliflower” recipe that I will post soon.

Thanks for bearing with me while I dropped off the blogosphere. I promise more fun party treats are coming soon.
