What a week it has been. I know, I didn’t make it in time for the Thursday Three, so I’ll just give you a week in review. This week has been so FULL. There were high highs and low lows with not much in between. Thankfully, the good far outweighed the bad.
1. We had company! Know right now if you’re ever in North Carolina, you have a place to stay with us (albeit incredibly tiny). This was the week everyone decided to take us up on that offered, and I loved it. One of the hubby’s close friends, River, was here to record music (as previously mentioned), and it was awesome. I’m so glad he came. Also, a close friend of mine, Carrie, came through town along with her sister, brother-in-law and niece whom we are also friends with. Such a wonderful time was had when all seven of us were together just eating our favorite pizza on the lawn (because did I mention it was 70 degrees?) and enjoying our time together.
Hubby and Jim matched. (This has actually happened two weeks in a row)
Carrie and I!
Love these guys. (Shout out to Riv’s girlfriend who was at SXSW—you were missed!)
2. Not all fountains are scenic. Ummm. On Monday the toilet was apparently clogged at work. Plunging it then caused a full-on fountain of sewage water (or as I call it, poop water) out of the drain in the kitchen. (The photo below does not even begin to show near the amount of water that spouted out.) This went on for days. Needless to say, things have been a little crappy at work lately. (Yeah, I just went there)
3. Planning a wedding is always more fun when you aren’t planning your own wedding. It’s true. Everyone says it’s so much fun. When you’re in the middle of it, surrounded by all the stress, details and bills it feels a lot more like work. But when you are free from those variables and just along for the ride, it’s quite enjoyable. I happily went wedding dress shopping with my friend Connie over the weekend, and she found THE DRESS. Obviously no photos until the wedding, but it was the cutest little shop full of Southern belles.
Except…this really happened. My old job (as of yesterday) rocked. It had its days that weren’t easy, but all in all, it was a great place to be. Tonight I said goodbye and couldn’t keep back the tears as I drove away. I can’t really put to words what it was like being “the girl” for the past year and how much I’m going to miss working there. While I’ve been grateful that they’ve been so supportive about this new venture (allowing me to take phone interviews at work and everything), I almost wish they’d put up more of a fight. I’m really going to miss these guys—their talent, their ridiculous quotes and their hearts.
