Weekend Celebrations and Big News

Monday, August 15, 2016

So I am writing this on Monday morning just because the last week really has been a blur of fun, good times and exciting stuff. First things first...


I am always hesitant to say anything until my butt is actually in my seat in my new office but it looks like all remaining details will be worked out this week and my tentative start date is sometime next. Sigh.... can I breathe now? I am not sure but I think so! I am very excited, it's a wonderful opportunity with a very good firm!! And... it's permanent! No more contract work!!! Praise the Lord!

So my weekend shenanigans actually started on Thursday night with the Brad Paisley concert and he was awesome!! If you are a country fan you must go see him. He puts on a great show, we had so much fun even though it was about a thousand degrees and a million percent humidity. It was so gross I wore my hair up for the rest of the weekend because I just can't stand it touching me when it's like Hell hot out there. The best part was I bought the tickets through a Groupon months ago and they were $20 lawn seats. We got there early and they immediately upgraded us to Pavillion seats fo free!!! Oh yeah and we Uber-ed so we got dropped off at the door. I love Uber, if you need a free ride please use my code 8abui and enjoy!

My BFF's birthday was on Friday so the rest of the entire weekend was spent drinking wine, dinners out, brunch and maybe a few shots. Ugh... never a good idea. I did have the most amazing brunch on Sunday though... eggs, a pile of bacon, fried green tomatoes, bacon jam, toast and pimento cheese. Ahhhmazing! If you are local go check out Hop Alley, it's pretty awesome!

So I am all set to thoroughly enjoy my last week of vacay by getting lots of shit done because that brings me joy. That also includes some binge watching and book reading because unscheduled vacay also means treat yoself. I hope y'alls Mondays are off to a great start!
