Winner Winner!!

I'm so sorry that it has taken me a few days to actually post who the winner is for the Ultimate Blog Party and 500th Post Giveaway!   The winner was contacted on Saturday, and the number was drawn using, a random number generator.  The winner was #23 - Aubrey Laine, who entered as many times as she could, and it paid off!! Congrats, Aubrey!  Your $10 Starbucks card is on its way!

I have to admit, as much as I like Starbucks, my favorite coffee shop is Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf.  I love their white chocolate lattes, and I always order it with 1/2 sugar-free vanilla powder, 1/2 white chocolate powder to cut down on the sugar grams.  It is SO good!  Normally a regular size is 460 calories, but with the 1/2 sugar-free vanilla powder, those calories are cut down by at least a third. Still a hefty calorie intake, but  I save it for special occasions; you know, like those days where I have to drop the kids off at school and stuff like that.


Among other news, I am finishing up my 4th month as a photographer's assistant, and I L-O-V-E it.  I'm actually a virtual assistant, doing all of my work on the computer from home.  My boss lives over an hour away, and we have actually never even met in person.  We Skype, email, and talk on the phone, and I work anywhere from 5-10 hours a week.  God has really blessed me with this position, as I was not sure what kind of job would fit in with my boys' schedules.  First I looked into being a virtual assistant through the MAG Group, which services pastors and ministries with administrative help. Shortly after applying there, however, I was offered this job that my brother heard about on Facebook through a friend of his.  If you are looking for a position like this, make a list of all of your skills, and start marketing yourself on Facebook and social networks.  You just never know what could happen!

Soon I'll write another post on how exactly to find a job as a virtual assistant, so if you have any specific questions, please leave a comment and I'll be sure to answer those questions in that post.  Have a great week!
