Over Cocktails

This week was a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad week!  Ok, that’s a bit dramatic, I just had a little hiccup in my moving plans that has put me in a bit of a funk, but I have faith that everything will work out and I’m not going to get myself upset about it right now. Without going into extensive detail – the place that that I signed a lease on in Richmond isn’t AT ALL what is depicted online, so I’m just trying to get that figured out. On a positive note:  I had an amazing weekend and very productive week, so can’t complain too much!

  1. First off, Saturday was one of the best days I’ve had in a while.  We went down to St. Augustine to enjoy a beautiful day acting as tourists and checking out all the local watering holes.  But first, we stopped by my friends house and played with some goats and pigs and I even watched geese hatching (seriously one of the coolest things ever!)  I can’t say enough great things about this wonderful family, and honestly I don’t think they’d want me to, but it’s always an adventure going down to see them and all the amazing things they are doing to rescue animals.  Then we went out to downtown St. Augustine and probably stayed out way longer than we needed, but we were having so much fun no one wanted to leave! Sunday was spent enjoying Easter with my wonderful family where we had amazing food and walked to the annual Mandarin Art Festival! These kind of weekends are what it’s all about!
  2. I have been spending every spare minute getting ready for this “move” –  even if it’s 15 minutes, I am using this time to get rid of things I don’t use and cleaning out closets, even trying (for the first time ever) consignment. My spare bedroom is in absolute chaos….but it’s kind of empowering knowing there’s a method to my madness and it will all cleared in just a few weeks.
  3. Tuesday night was the one night I haven’t done anything to get ready for this temporary move, but I had a VERY good excuse. I got to hang with three of my favorite teenagers! For those of you who don’t know me, I babysat a family throughout my college years and beyond and this family had such an incredible impact on me.  I have been fortunate enough to watch these “children” grow into amazing people and I enjoy the time I get to spend with them so much. We made pizzas at home and watched the movie “A Kind of Murder” – highly recommend the movie (even though a 15 year-old had to explain the ending to me😝)!

4. Look what I got this morning!!! 250 CLASSES!!! IMG_8625.jpg

Looking forward to another great weekend with a bridal shower for one of my best friends and then dinner/drinks with some more of my best friends! Can’t complain, these next few weeks are going to be crazy busy and I’m going to cherish all of it.  But first: I gotta get through Friday and then my hair done so I can start the weekend off right!

 

Have a great weekend!!!
