    It helps for sure and this is somthing I negotiated when I started and I am glad I did cause almost 4 years with no raise is crazy. My first year here I gave my staff raises but didn't get one from my boss! He is no longer here and I love my new VP so things are looking up!


    I leave April 23rd Brandy! 7weeks yikes!!!! So much still to do.

                Wow!  I feel bad for you snow storm girls!  I am not a snow person and we have actually had some this year (abnormal winter!)  Hopefully those days are over as we know have sunny skies and mid 70's. Woo Hoo!

                So I just posted this on the May thread but wanted to share with you girls as well because I was so excited, and my FI actually got excited when he saw everything and started coming up with new ideas...I was somewhat in shock LOL


                Sooo obssessed with VistaPrint.  Everything for my first order turned out great.  I think I spent aroudn $36 and got freebies and free shipping.  They "said" 21 days but my order came in less than 2 weeks!  I LOVE it and can't wait to place another order!  I get free postcards next so suggestions on what to make with them since you get so many.  Not shown below, but I also ordered the free rubber self inking stamp with our names and our address on it.


                Used the rack cards to make my door hangers.  So happy with how they turned out!

                Oversized postcards which I used as for the Welcome letters.  Turned out awesome, look professional, and I LOVE them!


                I got "save the date" cards with envelopes for free so I made stationary with my new name on them for some little thank you notes I can write.  I got the pen for free and a steal of a deal on the business cards which I am come to use as thank you tags on OOT bags, luggage tags, key/tip holder cards, and maybe some other things!


                FREE Car Magnet (P.S. My FI's name is Winston, but I call him Winnie so we are "Winnie & Tiffy")

                  I know there is a separate thread on here about this, but all this bonus talk has me curious about what kind of work everyone does. Plus, I totally need to find a new job that doesn't involve me being away from FI so much.


                  Lisa, the 407 and gas being paid is huge. When FI was working in T.O. his 407 bill was usually at least $500 a month. I just noticed a few minutes ago that gas here is $1.20 a litre, close to $5 a gallon for the U.S. ladies.

                    Stop rubbing in the nice weather, that's not allowed!!


                    Very nice job with your vistaprint order!  I could just keep ordering from there, but I have pulled myself away.  Instead, I'm ordering from etsy...which is worse because I'm paying more money!!
