I have a BF!!!

Wow, it's been a while! What I've been up to:
-had a blast in St. Lucia for D's wedding. Destination wedding is definitely in the cards for me...one day!
-I'm still dating the German, K and am going to the lake district in Italy (think Clooney's house on Como) in a couple weeks to meet the parents. The mom does not speak a word of English. Lots of smiling and nodding will be going on!
-I'm at home right now for my friend V's wedding - always a bridesmaid, never a bride! K sent me 36 assorted roses yesterday...so sweet!
-Things are different with K. I'm not anxious or freaking out with him. He is incredibly honest and reliable and I just feel secure with him. He gives the best bear hugs and doesn't let go and is a great cuddler! His English sometimes gets mixed up and makes for some great laughs but he also gets my sense of humor and can grasp it. He wants to take me away...and I believe he actually will!
-While everything is going well in my personal life - bf, great friends and family - my work life is not so much. I've been unhappy in my job since I moved back from NY and started at this company. It really is a great company but the job is just not for me and starting to get really political. Like sometimes I'm in a sick twisted novel...so petty. So I will be on the hunt and hope to be able to get back into retail/luxury brand again. It all depends on my flipping visa though...

So I'm happy (with exception to the job) and looking forward to this summer. Isle of Wight music festival complete with tents and wellies, Cinque Terra with my close girlfriends and hopefully Bali in the Fall. Lots going on and I promise to be better about blogging!

St. Lucia, Baby!

I'm in sunny and hot St.Lucia for one of my best friend's weddings. I've been here for a couple days to start on my tan and relax and unwind but I can't wait to catch up with my old friends and see my best friend C and her hubby. It's an all inclusive resort with all you can eat and drink. I'm hoping I can still fit into my bridesmaids dress on Saturday!

Happy St. Paddy's Day!

Too much information (Updated)

I need to vent for a sec: I'm so annoyed! I ran into Mark B. (South African Mark's friend) at lunch today and went over to his table to chat for a second.
This was the conversation:
Mark B.: I heard from Mark today.
Me: Oh really, how's he doing in Paris?
Mark B.: He really likes it and didn't say too much about what he's doing work wise but that there are a bunch of French hotties all around him!
Me: (raised eyebrows).....that's awesome...

My stomach dropped and I felt so jealous. ahhhH!

Whatever - I'm on my way to meet up with Zee German for dinner and drinks tonight...

Update: Had a nice date with Zee German. We somehow ended up in a gay bar in Soho where I was the only girl. I had to go to the bathroom at one point but couldn't find it. On of the patrons that looked like a cuddly bear and dressed in leather, told me "Just use the gents, we're all girls here." Hilarious!
The best part of the evening was randomly running into Mark B.'s gossipy roommate at another pub later that night. I got great satisfaction telling him I was on a date. It also didn't hurt that Zee German was looking rather cute in his suit. I turned to look back and all of his friends were giving him the thumbs up sign about me and he was busyly sending a text to someone. No doubt Mark will be hearing about this!
