WakeMed and WPP

I've been at WakeMed for two days now and I really like it.  I've worked in the MICU (Medical Intensive Care Unit) and the SICU/STICU (Surgical Trauma Intensive Care Unit) and both have been great.  All the nurses and staff have been super friendly and helpful.  I'm feeling pretty good about the charting systems and how all the computer stuff works. I'm a quick learner ;) I will have two more days of orientation in other units so I'm hoping to have the same experiences there. The schedule is definitely a HUGE perk.  I don't have to decide what I want to work next week until this weekend - I love that!  I think I will mostly work Monday, Wednesday and Thursday every week.  I don't like doing 3 days in a row (exhausting) and I'd like to have every Friday off + the weekend. I may do a night here and there but I'll mostly work days.  I really like having dinner at home and going to bed with my hubs.

Windy Peak is doing so well! We are so excited.  We've booked 7 weddings for 2011 so far and have several in the works we are hoping to seal the deal on.  Most are late summer/fall but our first wedding of the year is in 2 weeks.  We've booked a few for 2012 also and various bridal shoots, family portraits etc etc. We are working on an on WPP blog, so that will be up and running with all our current stuff soon.  I'll be sure to pass on the link!  Remember when I blogged about how excited I was to advertise on TheKnot.com?  Well, yea, not so much.  We did it for 2 months and didn't book a single wedding.  We got several inquires, but that's really no big deal, we normally get several a week.  I'm not sure why it didn't work so well for us but it definitely wasn't worth the price we were paying.  Word-of-mouth is our biggest seller, so people, SPREAD THE WORD, and believe it or not - Craigslist!
