High Five for Friday

Today is my last day at my job. I think I'm still in denial. But if being in denial makes saying goodbye to my babies easier, I'm totally fine with that. I'm so thankful for this experience and all that is has taught me. But more importantly, I'm thankful for all the little one's that have been a part of my life for the past 15 months. If I had my way, I would scoop them all up, take them home with me, and give them the life they deserve. But since I can't, I pray that someone will come into their lives who loves them and believes in them as much as I do and continues to give them the tools to escape the difficult lives they were born into. My heart is broken. I'm going to miss my babies so much.

But in an attempt to stay positive, I'm linking up with Lauren for High Five for Friday.

1. Since I'm starting my new job on Monday, I get to go shopping for new work clothes this weekend! I actually have to dress like a real adult for this job, and I'm pretty excited. But, let's be honest, I'm going to miss those mornings when I'm too tired to get dressed and I walk into work wearing yoga pants and a hoodie.

2. My Birchbox finally came in the mail yesterday and it was amazeballs. I opted for the normal Birchbox, which was a smart move on my part! I've heard a lot of people who got the special edition box were unhappy. I could have done without the Luna bar though. This is a beauty box people, leave the food out!

3. Fall is in full force here in Michigan and I love it. Boots, sweaters, scarves, jackets....ahhh!

4. I bought these above the knuckle rings and am dying to get them in the mail. Egypt...why must you be so far away???

5. I get to spend the entire weekend with Justin without any other commitments. I. Am. So. EXCITED!

Have a wonderful weekend, lovelies!

i'm sure that it will be a hard day! transition and change is always hard for me - but exciting too! and yeah for shopping for new clothes!!

Kalie said...

I hope today goes as well as it can! Those kids were lucky to have you in their lives while they did!
And have fun dress clothes shopping, that was my favorite part of getting a big girl job too!

Good luck with your transition ... grown up clothes are for the birds, though :)

Stephanie said...

Sorry your current job is ending, but good luck at your new position!
Can you wear the knuckle rings at it? Cause I love them.

Stephanie said...

Transitions are hard but hopefully you've touched their lives to help them moving forward. Good luck at your new job!.

I canceled my Birchbox after receiving the Luna Bar twice in a row, lol.

Obsessed with the knuckle rings!!! So cute!! I know how hard it was to leave your job today. I hope you're feeling better. God obviously has other exciting plans for you!

Shopping!!! I am so jealous

Erin said...

I'm sad for you that you're done with your job. You can tell just through your posts and Instagrams how much you loved those kids. There will always be more that will need your love though and the others are better off having even had you for fifteen months
