Kate Spade!!!!

My wonderful brother and his beautiful wife stopped by tonight with a fabulous prize (that's what SIL calls them) for me! This gorgeous Kate Spade bag!!!!
Can you believe it? I SOOOO love this bag!!! It apparently retails for $395!!! My SIL is a bargain hunter and swears to me that she didn't pay near retail for it. I would just die if she had!
Anyway, SIL said that she knew I was having a tough time lately with my new job and when she saw this bag she knew it would cheer me up! She was sooo right!
She was also right that I have been having a really tough time this past 6 weeks since I started my new job. The training has been really difficult emotionally and mentally. They try to run it in a sort of para-military manner, so their sole purpose is to see what it will take to get us to break down. This along with the whole adjustment of the new job, the new schedule, etc. has really taken a toll on me.
I am working 12 hour shifts, rotating between days and nights. I have never done this type of work before. I previously worked in Human Resources, working a regular 9-5 Monday through Friday schedule. This is SOOO different! I know it will all work out in the end, and I should just be fortunate that in these financial times, I have a good job with good pay and benefits.
Anyway, that's enough of that. Now how about my new bag?


  1. Dawn,...the bag is to die for, and what a great sil!!! You are a lucky girl. :)

    Sorry to hear about your job, the training sounds kind of stinky, but I hope it all works out.
    Hugs....Jodi :)

  2. Great Bag!! What a great SIL you have! Oh I hope the job gets better.

  3. you certainly have a fantastic brother and sisterinlaw, that is what family is all about. Your bag is lovely and i can tell in your writing that you are thrilled. Im so sorry to hear that you are having a tough time adjusting to your new job, but i wish you all the best and im sure when you adjust everything will be just fine.

  4. Great bag!

    I am sorry you are having a rough time at your new job. What line of work are you in?
