Weekend Highs and Lows


Welp, today is my first day at my new job! It always sucks being the new girl, but I'm pretty excited to start this new journey. Fingers crossed that I don't make a complete fool out of myself on my very first day!

Here are my weekend highs and lows...

Highs

*My mom and I went shopping this weekend for big girl clothes. So. Much. Fun. Since I was working in the classroom with toddler at my last job, I was able to wear whatever I wanted, so long as I wasn't dressed like I just left work at a strip club. It was all about being in comfortable clothes that I wouldn't mind getting messy. I'm excited to wear pencil skirts and dresses and heels to work now. I even have my "first day of work" outfit all picked out. I feel like I'm going back to school!

*I got an e-mail Friday night from my new boss letting me know that my position is moving to full time! I was hired in as a part-time employee and was told that eventually the position would move to full-time once a new grantee was found for the program. I never imagined that the position would move to full-time so soon! It is definitely a huge blessing, since we're beginning our wedding planning.

*I bought the two most amazing pair of boots yesterday. This event, alone, deserves it's own high. A pair of black, knee-high heeled boots and a pair of camel booties, all for $50. I die. I'll post pictures this week because I love them that much.

Lows

*Saying goodbye to my babies and co-workers on Friday was heartbreaking. I was a mess all day long. I absolutely loved my job and couldn't imagine ever leaving anytime soon, so when we received the news that we had lost funding and were closing a month and a half later, I was crushed. Ugly crying...all day long.

*I was in such a great mood after a fun day of shopping with my mom on Saturday until homegirl backed into my stopped car in the Costco parking lot. To make matters worse, she was probably in her late 50s and got out of her car with the most fake pouty-duck face. I almost slapped her. "I'll admit, that was completely my fault." No shit, Sherlock! Welp, at least I'll have money to fix the damage now that my job is full-time!

How was your weekend?!

So happy for you that it was moved to full time so quickly. Hopefully the transition is as smooth as can be and you have some time to start planning that wedding :)
