Whirlwind of a Weekend


Boy did this weekend go by quickly! Let's see, where do I start. Well... Friday we fasted for Mark and Angie's 10th anniversary. This was the first time that I have ever fasted. It was easier than I anticipated, but by the end of the night though, I was very hungry! It was well worth the hunger and the crackers and cheese that I had afterwards tasted amazing.

On the job news front, I had my interview on Friday and afterwards I thought it went really well. Turns out it did and they offered me the position the same day! While I was in my interview, the other company called and left me message stating that they wanted to hire me as well. It was an easy decision to make, especially when one doesn't offer vacation, sick or holiday time!

I will be starting the 12th. My last day here at my current job is the 31st. So I get a week off, which will be really nice. It won't be much of a vacation, but it will still be nice to have that time off. Hopefully, I can catch up on some housework, see my friends baby who better have arrived by then, and spend some time down at the hospital.

On Saturday, we finally went and did some Christmas shopping. I think we ended up buying more stuff for ourselves than Christmas present though! We were at Cost Plus World Market, when I saw a bookcase that I loved. When we noticed that it was half off, we decided to use my parents Christmas gift to buy it. Once, we put it together, I will take a picture of it.

We also bought me some work clothes. Since, my current job is casual wear, I will need a whole new work wardrobe. I am bummed that I won't be able to wear jeans anymore, but I so love new clothes! Because it is Christmas, we were able to find some awesome deals. I bought some work pants at New York and Company for half off! I got these two pair of pants from there.



I will still need to do some shopping though for work. I need some new shirts and some new brown shoes.

On a sad note, I lost one of my diamond hoops that David bought me for my birthday a couple of years ago. I think I lost it when, I either put on or took off my pea coat sometime during the day. I am really sad, as I loved them!

Sunday, we went to church and then down to the hospital for the rest of the day. We had dinner with all the extended family, which was nice. We got home 10:00 and I went straight to bed! So, it was very much a whirlwind weekend. At least it was a good whirlwind though!

Congrats on the job! You must be relieved to have found something already! I can't believe you're out shopping just a few days before Christmas... the stores must be crowded.
