What a FABULOUS weekend!! Isn't it great when a weekend doesn't necessarily hold some special event or some epic happening, but it's still awesome?? Jared and I truly soaked in every ounce of this weekend with each other and with T and it couldn't have gone better.
Friday I had a couple errands to run so while my boys held down the fort I was out and about for a few hours. I had a package to pick up from my old office so I swung by there to grab it while I was out. It was nice to see my boss and the familiar faces that I worked with for so long. As cheesy as this might sound... it feels like home when I go there. I'm comfortable, I'm welcomed with open arms and it's like I never left. Me staying home is the best option for our family, but it's nice to be in touch with my work peeps here and there. There were talks of a "reunion" happy hour so I hope someone puts those plans into action.
After meeting with a contractor first thing Saturday morning, we hit up a tiny, local Halloween/Fall fest in our area. Obviously T is too young to enjoy or appreciate these things, but it was a beautiful day to get out and enjoy the festivities. We got him his own little mini pumpkin which he was totally unimpressed with.
That night Jared and I entertained ourselves with Snapchat filters and tried out the Halo ice cream everyone has been raving about. Our verdict is that we liked it, but we didn't LOVE it. After awhile, I felt like I really noticed that artificial sweetener after-taste that some of you might be familiar with. It's a nice treat to have when you're trying not to indulge too much, but I didn't go completely ga-ga over it.
My Bengals lost horribly on Sunday. That makes two weeks of ugly losses in a row. While it's brutal and I hate it- I must admit something. It's WAY easier to get over a team loss when I'm not going into work there the very next day. I mean, WOW! I knew it would be different going from an employee to a fan, but I never imagined it would feel this different. I like being a fan, I'll tell you that much! It's much less emotional, no matter the outcome.
I'm excited about this week and all it could hold for me. Cheers to a fresh start!
