Best of Pretty Handy Girl 2015

Best of 2015 | Pretty Handy Girl

What a year 2015 was. I’m most amazed by all that was accomplished in between a major sinus surgery and studying for my general contractor exam. I began taking review classes for the exam in February and here I am on the day of the exam. If you’re the praying type, I’ll take any prayers you have. If you’re the good luck type, I’ll take those wishes too! I’m a bit stressed to say the least. I took a practice exam earlier this week and failed. But, I’ve spent some time focusing on the sections that I didn’t do so well on. By 2:30pm EST today I’ll know whether or not I’ve passed the NC Residential General Contractor Exam. Be sure to follow me on Facebook and Instagram so you can get the news first. (Update: Time to update my resume, I passed!)

While you’re waiting, we’re going to take a quick drive down Pretty Handy Memory Lane to see the top posts of 2015.
