Friday Favorites: New Job Edition

Hi everyone! Today I'm linking up with  ErikaNarci and Andrea for Friday Favorites! 

Friends, I just have one Friday Favorite to share with you this week, but it's a good one: I GOT A NEW JOB!! Whoop whoop! Time to celebrate. After working in Financial Aid at my Alma Mater for the past 5+ years, I decided it was time for a career change. During my time in FA I learned so much, and definitely realized my passion for Higher Education, but was starting to feel like I had reached maximum grown in my position. That, combined with my MBA I earned in 2016, combined with the new mom chaos, I was ready for something different.

All of that led me to my new job, as a PROFESSOR! Yep, you can call me Professor F :) This academic year I'll be teaching Business Administration courses at a local jr. college, and I am SO EXCITED! I have gotten a good feel of the business side of higher ed, and now I'm excited to test the waters of the academic side of things. 

Perks to new job: 
  • new challenges/learning for myself
  • more interaction with students
  • something different everyday
  • new adventures each semester
  • flexibility, which will hopefully allow for more work/home balance
  • work from home most Fridays 
  • limited summer schedule
  • more quality time with that sweetie pictured below

Today marks the end of my first full week here, and next week is my first week of classes! 

So all that being said, my new gig is my FAVORITE thing going on this week, and I'm excited to update you guys on how its going as the semester progresses.

This weekend is Lee's and my 6th wedding anniversary, and we're taking a family get away to Lake Barkley. Lee and I have done this several times for our anniversary, but this will be our first time as a family of 3. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Liam enjoys it. I hope you all have a great weekend!! 


  1. Congrats on the new job! And the new schedule. That kind of flexibility is worth tons. Happy anniversary and I hope all goes well!

  2. Very helpful info and you have expressed it in really nice way. Thanks for sharing.
