New Job!

Many of my friends have been asking about my new job so I thought I would share a little about it. The name of the Company is Bridgestreet Worldwide, Its a Corporate Housing Firm. My job as a Guest Services Coordinator is to do just about anything the guest wants. When a client relocates or is on a contract we find housing for them. We arrange everything from hooking up the cable to furnishing the Apartment. Once the guest moves in I am their point of contact for everything housing related. What I've learned in my 3 weeks there is that everyday is different and every guest is high maintenance. The actual company that I work for is very prestigious and reputable, which is why I couldn't resist the opportunity. (Well that and a much bigger paycheck) Marriott (doesn't pay well) has given me skills and training which has made my transition to Bridgestreet so much easier. They didn't hold my hand much, I pretty much jumped right in and have been working hard ever since. The trip I am going on is for Guest Relations Training. A lot of the clients we are dealing with are people relocating and so we need to be sensitive to that. Moving is stressful especially with a wife and kids in tow. I am an army brat so this is all too familiar to me.
So far I love the new gig, it's a challenge and it keeps me on my toes. I still work for Marriott about once a month that way I can keep the great hotel benefits that we have come to love and cherish.
So there you have it!
Thanks for all the kinds comments. They are appreciated!

Where have I been, you ask?

I haven't been a blogging Mom lately because I started a new job a couple of weeks ago. Its a great new opportunity but it really is difficult finding time to keep this blog updated. Please bare with me through this adjustment. I promise when I get back on my toes I will do a better job. I had a wonderful Mother's Day and have enjoyed having the evening's and weekends with my hubby and kids. I have a great support network making this work for us. Stacey my friend who watches the kids Mon-Thurs and My in-laws have been helping with watching the kids on Friday. They do an amazing job.

Josh is an outstanding Dad! I already knew that but he has really stepped up lately. He is the one getting the kids up and at em, taking them to daycare. He never complains and is so supportive of his Corporate Wife!! I love that guy!

My kids are also pretty cool! I mean they are the ones we are doing all of this for. We want to give our kids the best things in life. They are the happiest, funniest, cutest kids in the world..and I have pictures to prove it....Just look for yourselves.

So now you have a very quick explanation of my lack of blogging. I promise I will get back to normal soon.

Also, I'm not bragging or anything but my new job is sending me Myrtle beach for training. I am nervous to be away from my kids and hubby for a whopping 3 nights! Maybe I can take some nice pictures while I am there. Stay Tuned!
