Good (unexpected!) news…and Friday Favorites #6

Friday, June 29, 2012

The good, but VERY unexpected (!), news????

…..

Our hospital is giving a raise this year!!!!!!

I had completely given up hope, considering every other year that it happened, it was announced earlier in the year.

But there will be a hospital wide 2% raise starting in the middle of this month 🙂

With all of our focus on trying to save more money, this could not have come at a better time.  I can’t wait to try to just siphon off that extra money right into our emergency fund!

I think I was smiling all night long at work 🙂

Anyways, hopefully these Friday Favorites will have you smiling too…

Another favorite blogKERF (Kath Eats Real Food)…I’ve been following Kath as she lost weight, graduated with a registered dietician degree, opened a bakery with her husband, and now as she is expecting her first child (in which she documents baby stuff on Baby KERF)  I feel as if Kath embodies how to eat real food, that looks good!

  1. I hope it’s the whole hospital because I haven’t heard anything about a raise. That would be wonderful news.

    • Aimee…it was a letter in our last paycheck and I believe it WAS the whole hospital! Let me know….I know sometimes when people get direct deposit they don’t look at their paychecks too often 🙂
