Yeah that’s right, it’s time to BRAG about yourself! Just a little ‘go me!’ thread, but different than the first iteration of “share some good news!” This is strictly bragging. So tell me, Hive, why are YOU awesome?
I had one hell of a day, myself. Not only did I somehow manage to telepathically convince my fiance to buy the car I wanted (instead of the one he wanted), but the issue of our local high end magazine came out with MY JEWELRY SPREAD ALL OVER IT! I thought they were just taking 5 pieces to pick one to display in a tiny corner picture. Bees, this is huge for me. This was just a silly little hobby I picked up to kill some time, and here I am, all over this glossy mag. It came out today! I can’t wait to see what might transpire from it. Here’s a badly taken photo of it:
Now you! Brag about yourself!!

Not nearly as cool as having my jewelry spread printed but I bit the bullet and paid off the entire lump sum of my student loan today. Going into marriage debt free on my end is awesome.

I………finally ordered my invites? Does that even count? Haha.
OOH, I made a pretty decent dinner last night and was fairly proud of that!

I went to the doc today, and weighed in at 187 lbs! Down from 200 at the beginning of the year. I am pleased because I’ve been doing it the good old fashioned way – diet and exercise.

@KristenGotMarried: This is really fantastic! Congratulations!
I did not have a day anywhere close to as good as yours, but I did book 2 more clients for my business and got some extra cash!

I beat out all 60 students in my x-ray class for highest grade on a really difficult test. I was 1 of only 8 who passed. And today a department manager overheard me talking to a patient as I was walking them back from the exam room and pulled me into her office to tell me how professional and wonderful I was with patients. Good career week for me 🙂

@KristenGotMarried: that’s GREAT news! congrats! how exciting.
well, I finally convinced my SO to let me quit my job w/o having another one lined up first— so that I can take a break for a month and possibly explore freelance or part time work. I’m so relieved, this gives me the opportunity to really look carefully for a job that I truly love instead of taking whatever I can get out of desparation. (and on a more shallow note, it means I don’t have to do the terrible projects that were coming up this May that I was so dreading.)

Awesome tohave a spread like that! Hopefully this brings new and exciting things!
My brag gotta be praising the Lord in a good recovery from my surgery last week and catching more of the cancer before it spreaded any farther.

@KristenGotMarried: This is awesome!
Congrats for all our accomplishments ladies!
Today I like to brag that I got a whole lot of wedding stuff done and for cheaper than I thought: my photobooth, normally $1300, for $500 plus negotiated down the travel fee from $80 to $50; my alterations on my wedding dress for $80; and settled my dessert bar, favors, and invitations mocks. =)

WOW that is so awesome OP! Congrats! Do you have a website or anything? I’m still slacking on ordering my wedding jewelry.
I am awesome because my son tells me I am. I don’t really think I have any other reason… =/
