New Beginnings

So far 2014 has been a year filled with life changing events. Which is strange considering I vowed to make this year less stressful than last year. To give you a bit of a recap of 2013, we'll start from the beginning. 


Did you catch all that? I probably forgot some of it, but you catch my drift. I wanted this year to be calm and dare I say, less eventful. But in true Maxine fashion, things don't usually go as planned and it ends up even better than I could have imagined. I'm hoping that fashion continues this year. 

And so far, it has. I'm excited to write that I've joined the KARK/Fox16 as a morning reporter! 

I'll be the one standing in the freezing cold on solid ice telling you to stay inside for the day or the one tasting the biggest chocolate chip cookie in the world. I'll be doing a lot of things on television that I'm sure all of you can't wait to hear about. It's been a blast so far and I seriously love the people I work with. I'm not just saying that because it's now on the www but honestly, they're super talented and intelligent. 

This job isn't all rainbows and butterflies either. That would be boring, wouldn't it? The schedule is sometimes brutal and you wish that nap time from kindergarten would return. I'm not using this pregnancy as an excuse, but man, I am TIRED. Waking up at 3:00 am, getting to work at 4:00, going live from 5:00-9:00 and then reporting on the story for the next day is tough. Side note: reporting isn't easy regardless of what schedule you're on. By the end of my day (around noon -1:00) I'm just thankful I survived. But something about this business keeps me wanting more, I can honestly say I love my job and not many folks can say that nowadays. 

On that note, I need a nap! This 3:00 wake up call comes fast!! Goodnight

Also, thank you for all the preggo love! We're so happy to share the news with you :-)
