Gone to Carolina In My Mind

Hey y'all,

I have officially finished my first week at my new job. For those of you that have not figured it out from the title or the image of the Old Well above, I am back at my Alma Mater, the University of North Carolina!

It was so exciting when I interviewed for this position, not only the happy dance I did when I received the offer. I love the department I am working for and even though I have a few more weeks for training I am blessed to be an employed post-grad! Let's just say it was great to finally announce my job to my friends and sorority sisters after my first day was complete.

To celebrate my return to Chapel Hill, one of my best friends jCm and I met up on Tuesday to go to Wine & Design to paint the Old Well. It was great to catch up and a lot of fun painting and making something so iconic to remind us of UNC especially since jCm will be graduating in a few weeks!!
My masterpiece. I'm pretty proud.
Now it is time to adjust to working a normal schedule of Monday-Friday compared to the times I worked in retail at Target. Yep, after over three years I hung up my red and khaki and am now in a permanent position. Target was a great company to work for but I am happy to be back in the Triangle area, decorating a new apartment and learning to navigate life at Carolina as a staff person rather than an undergraduate student. 
My Bullseye Plush.
And last but not least. Here is what I wore for my first day!
Cardigan: Target Merona Embellished Cardigan (Summer '12)
Top: Kirna Zabete for Target (The Shops 2 Fall '12)
Pants: Part of a Kasper Suit set (Spring '12)
Shoes: Pink Jeweled Flats from Jessica Simpson (From Marshalls Summer'12)
Longchamp Large Le Pilage in Black
Monogram Ring, Pearl Ring & Pearl Earrings (Gifts)

I am back to regular posting this week. Pinky-promise! YAY for internet!
