So I have NEWS!!!!!!!

Hey All!

I've been sitting on this for a few days now.

I hate being one of those bloggers that hints at news, or a big life change, and then says 'but I'll fill you all in soon'. So I just blogged nothing. It was easier that way. I have a hard time keeping good news to myself and not everyone was in the office this week, and like I've said before I'm starting to notice more IRL people know about my little Katy Korner of the world. Ooooh Katy's Korner....that sounds like a future feature. Look at all that alliteration.

Oh right! My news!

I've talked before about how much I really enjoy my job, and how blessed I feel to have it. Well on Wednesday of last week we had a big department meeting (that I was late to, thanks Boomer!), about some changes that would be coming. Head count ect. We were getting called into the big bosses office one by one, and when it was my turn I assumed I was just having all the big changes explained to me.


I was offered a promotion. I still haven't entirely wrapped my head around it, but I'm so incredibly excited for the opportunity. I'm also very humbled by the fact that people above me have seen potential in me and want to help me reach it. Very very very excited!

Ok so weekend stuff to link with Sami. I actually left my house this weekend and did some fun stuff so let me tell you about it.

Saturday I actually got my butt out of bed and went to church.

I figure He's hooked me up with this awesome new promotion. It would be rude not to head over and say thanks. I even managed to attend choir rehearsal Friday evening so I sang with the choir Saturday morning service too! (This is a big deal. Seriously. Ask my mom.)

After that I took Momm and Boomer out to lunch at Crackerbarrel. I'm not sure why, but we've been going there semi often lately, and its not like that dang place is close. Its in SUNBURY. (Which is about a half hour drive away.)

Sunday I went to the New Albany Classic. Its a yearly event here in Columbus, put on by Abigail Wexner. Yes, that Wexner. As in her hubs is Les Wexner and owns Limited Brands. The New Albany Classic benefits The Center for Family Healing and Safety. You can read all about their mission HERE. I think it says a lot about the Wexner family that they are so committed to philanthropy and this city. The Classic includes a Grand Prix horse show, which is pretty cool. The course here is on par with international competition courses. There are also rides and fun booths. Of course there is also a concert! This year Ariana Grande was one of the performers and Boomer LOVES her. So I took Boomer and one of her friends and we were not disappointed.

Yeah...that's the best I got :)

She's just as adorable and cute in person as you would imagine from the show. That girl can sing too!

There were a few other performers, but the girls lost interest after Ariana and just wanted to eat and go on the rides. So we did.

Never letting her get a license.

Then we got home and I wanted to pass out, but Boomer wanted to play with a neighborhood friend. (I'm not one of those moms that just lets the kids run wild.) Then Jj came over to spend some time with Boomer. Then finally, blessedly, at 930pm, I went to sleep. It was beautiful.

Happy Monday!!!!!!!!!
