Pop Quiz Question of the day:

There could be a number of reasons why I am jumping for sheer joy in this picture. All of the following reasons are true but tell me which one do you think is the PRIMARY reason for the elation in my face.


1. I just officially resigned from my job today because I accepted a new position that I think I'm going to love. I was overjoyed to personally hand in my resignation to one of my least favorite coworkers of all time.
2. I am just so happy to be back home from my trip to Virginia.
3. Today is my little brother's birthday.


4. I'm about to eat a piece of red velvet cake.
5. I'm actually wearing a white dress...something I rarely do. (It was 8 bucks at H&M...and it has pockets!)
6. I found a lone piece of Bubble Yum Bubble Gum in my purse today.
7. I ate from my favorite fast food spot in Houston today...Frenchy's Chicken!

8. I finally got to catch up on my True Blood episodes.
9. I got to hang out with my nieces today.
10. My "Mr." sponsored my trip to H&M in Virginia.

So which is the MOST likely reason that a 34 year old woman was willing to document jumping in the middle of the street?
NO CHEATING!!!! I don't play that in my classroom:)
By the way, you people who live even in the same state where there is an H&M, consider yourselves lucky!



Bonus Question: What do you think I said to the "least favorite coworker" when she said she was going to miss me?
A. I am going to miss you too.
B. You know what, I've been wanting to say this for a while...
C. Thank You then gave a blank stare.
D. I said nothing.

I sure do love H&M right now. I got a $49 maxi dress on sale for $20 the other day and its been one I been obsessing over for months.

You look great in this outfit by the way. Love it on you. You should wear white more often. It looks great.

I would say the resignation letter because there's nearly nothing I love more than moving on from the not quite right job to potentially greener pastures.

But the hint about people who live near you leads me to guess as a close second the boyfriend-sponsored trip to H&M (like maybe H&M is new to your part of Texas). Sponsored shopping trips are very rare in my reality. Like a blue moon. Which could cause spontaneous jumping glee.

To answer the bonus question, I think that it was C.

Now on to the really good stuff, Congratulations on your new position, and I have been sleeping on the show department at Target. I'm going to have to pay closer attention. I love those wedges.

Things are getting Awesomer and Awesomer! Do not make me come to Houston to snatch up your H & M finds, then stop off at Frenchy's before I head back to Dallas! I'm with Tonia, I think it was C.

I am sooooooooooo happy for you!!! I wish you would have told her how you really felt, but I bet you said nothing.

Tamstyles said...

I am having some issues myself. I would love to be saying this...I am in prayer though. I am not sure what you did...probably said thank you and stared....But congrats to you girl...what a great feeling.

I'm pretty sure you got a new position which is truly amazing...congratz! The sponsorship to H&M definitely a plus and yummy to the red velvet cake. The bonus question because from reading your blog on a pretty consistent basis I know you remained classy and professional and said thank you followed by the blank stare which is totally what I would have done.

... said...

hmm I can't decide between the new position and the cake, either way that entire list is a great reason to jump! congratulations and best of luck, I'm pretty sure you said thank you btw!

Sunny said...

I think you are smiling for all of the above... and my guess is you said NOTHING to the coworker. lol

Congratulations to you, chica!

Ro said...

I hope its the job if so CONGRATS and I know you blank stared her azzz..LOVES IT!
You look cute in that dress and that good news bet not be bout' no damn cake...LOLLLLLLLL

Erin said...

Please, you're jumping because of the bubble gum! And you just gave that nasty person a blank stare.

You are jumping because God made your enemy your footstool! I know that you just said thank you and gave a fake smile. Congrats!

Moni @ CL Journal said...

I can't even think straight for this quiz, because I was in Silver Spring, MD this weekend and I'm still recovering from Patron shots!

But I'm going to guess the resignation letter. Nothing like a big BYE to a job you are no longer in love with!

Congrats!

Welcome back! I think it was B or C! But leaning heavily towards C. We are so here<> lol< I donned a white dress yesterday too but you got your at a better price I think.

The answer is ALL of the above and the bonus answer is...D. You don't "do" small talk!

I know you said PRIMARY, but I can't pick...so I'm sticking with all of the above...Is that cheating?

InnyVinny said...

I vote for the resignation...tell me you said nothing to the less than loved coworker...awkward silence is the best in that situation. LOL.

FashionAddict said...

Hahaha, your blog always makes me smile :) I'm so happy for your career move, lady (which is why I'm assuming you are jumping)! As you pry remember, I resigned from my old position about 6 weeks ago, but it was b/c my boss was committing fraud and HR refused to investigate until I resigned and sent an email alerting the board of the fraud in order to force them. I know you asked a while back, and I was meaning to email you, but now you know :) I feel so much better now. It's so nice to get out of a sucky job.

I have that dress in white, gray AND a black/white print. I couldn't resist. It's so comfy.

GFS said...

D. You said NOTHING!! LOL! Oops, that's what I would have done. Knowing you, I'm going to go with C.
