Be Your Own Zoltar!

Hey guys! Can you seriously believe it'll be 2015 at the end of this week?!?! I need to get crackin' on my recap post, hopefully before the new year. When I was reading my feed on Bloglovin, I came across one of my favorite bloggers to read Juliette's post about how she couldn't have dreamed of predicting what happened in 2014 for her. That got the wheels in my brain thinking about my 2014 and how crazy it was. I met the love of my life and though I lost a few friends along the way (they were toxic anyway) I gained more security in already existing friendships and that's a huge thing for me. It's tough to think right now all that has happened in 2014 (hence the need for a recap post, if only for my sanity), but to think of all the exciting things ahead in 2015 is pretty cool. So Juliette is allowing everyone to predict their 2015 year aka be your own Zoltar predicting not only what you think will happen in your life, but in our world and link up with her for today only!
Predictions for 2015:
For the world.
I hope there are no more Ebola scares in the U.S., that ish can stay in 2014 along with all the missing airplanes, etc.
Get engaged!
A & I have already talked about this and it's going to happen in 2015, the real surprise is going to be when, and trust me that part is driving me nuts. I have a feeling though that it will happen either in April (my family will be meeting his family) or June (the "special" month for us when we first met in New Orleans aka the month that will live in infamy for us). I guess I'm making June a hugeee deal, but honestly that's the month I fell in love with A and knew 100% that I wanted to marry this guy and live happily ever after. Ok enough of the mushy gushy, but I predict June (if we end up making a trip and seeing each other then) because he has also asked me 4-5 times what dates did we go to New Orleans so kind of makes it an obvious for me, but who knows he can go and complete surprise me and propose in Jan when he comes (a girl could dream).
Party in Vegas!!
My best friend is getting married at the end of July & I cannot wait for her wedding celebration to get started. This girl is my forever friend and my lobster so I know it's going to be a huge change from the last wedding I was in (to get the jist of that fiasco read here ). I consider this wedding to be the one where I get to be a real bridesmaid because this friend actually respects me and doesn't try to control things (oh hey am I talking about a particular person here). End rant. Anywho, we picked Vegas to be the destination for her bachelorette party in May and I cannot wait!! I haven't been to vegas in over 2 years, plus the group of girls going are some of the best so you know that means an absolute blast! Although my party animal ways (HA!) are past me now, I know a weekend in Vegas will ignite that even for a few days!
Have an engagement party.
Ok this is another given, A and I have discussed this one as well. Since we talked about getting engaged in 2015, it's just obvious that we'll have an engagement party. This will be as small as I can possibly make it (with an over 250+ invite list for my wedding, this is no small feat). Although I don't have much of it planned (might sound crazy, but there is so much that goes into planning an Indian event, you need months and months to prepare) what I do know is it'll be in Houston, probably around the Fall time and I'm aiming for 150-200 guests (small,HA!).
Leave my job.
Now I haven't really posted much about work on the blog, but as of October I started a new job at a brand new heart failure clinic. These bad boys are popping up all over the place because it's crucial to keep patients out of the hospital (and insurance to actually pay the hospital). So when I took on this job, I took quite a few risks. First off, it was only part-time (which was my status at my previous job), but I didn't know the unstability that would come along with that. There are some days (see:almost all) that we are practically done by 11 am, now granted this is great for my blog because it means I can post and give my blog the attention it so greatly craves. At this point, I'm hardly making my part-time hours because of the lack of patients, but I knew this was going to happen when we first started out. The good thing on my end is that I kept my old job, until I become full-time at the new job. The other bad thing about a brand new job is the lack of paid time off. I have to wait 6 whole months to acquire PTO, which blows because I have a ton of things happening in this coming year where I need some time off (see:above excitement). Ok, so I think that's enough talking, didn't think this tidbit would get so long, but basically I don't know how happy I'll be here at the current moment. The nice part is I have my old job still on deck so I could technically go right back into that, however I know I will be moving to Houston in 2016, so do I just stick it out at the new place until then and grab some new knowledge?!
Oh and I also predict 2015 will be the year for world peace, no war, and clean water for all!
Ok so maybe I did this wrong, but that's all I got for ya folks. Don't know if some of those are really predictions or things I already know will be happening, oh well. At least I predicted when some of these events will take place, kinda. Don't hate me Juliette if I did this wrong. I'm curious to see what others are predicting and hoping for in 2015.

  1. I can't wait to see what A has up his sleeve! Soooo so so excited for you gurlie! I had no idea things were so tricky at the new job, I'm not sure what you should do, but I think PTO is extremely important and you should base it on that ;-)
