Another weekend full of revelry has passed!
We had The Boss's birthday party on Friday night. It was a nice low-key affair at The House. We played cards, drank scotch (well, I drank scotch anyway, others drank whatever they wanted) and giggled the night away. I was at home and in bed by 12:30. Saturday morning I woke up at 6am. I don't know why my body has been doing this lately, but a night of drinking scotch followed up by a super early morning isn't the most fun thing to do.
But I survived well enough to get myself showered and dressed for the day and to the salon by 9:30 so Natalia could cut my hair. (My first haircut since July!) Right after my cut, Francesca, Prudence and I went shopping for a gift for our bestie, Kaatrina's baby shower. After shopping, we went to the shower and got to see Katarina in all her pregnant glory. She looks so adorable with her baby belly and I can't wait for my little niece to get here!!! She's due April 4th and my birthday is April 3rd so I was telling her (yes, I was talking to the baby in Katarina's belly) to come out just a day early so we can be birthday buddies. I already share with my favorite cousin and our grandpa, I'm very good at sharing my birthday ;-)
We also had Natalia's birthday party on Saturday night. We had dinner, went out on the town, stopped by a friend's band practice and played around with drums and microphones. We visited Francesca and karaoked the rest of the night away. I think I sang. I'm pretty sure I sang. I have some adorably blurry pictures from the evening. We ended the night at the Barpartment with a few beverages and eventually sleep.
Needless to say, I spent the entirety of yesterday on the couch with a blanket - but with visitors! Francesca came by and worked on an art project for The Bear for Valentine's Day for a few hours. She even brought me lunch! Then Herbert came over and held down the other couch for a while. I even got to see my darling Han, fresh back from his vacation to Las Vegas! He came over and napped on the couch while I worked on an art project of my own. It was a nice day of doing absolutely nothing but with good laid-back company. I didn't even change out of my pajamas until 6pm and I went to bed at 9. It was quite the day.
In other news - My new boss is fantastic! I'm not going to lie, I was a bit apprehensive about things the last few weeks. But after a great meeting with him and my supervisor on Friday I feel 100% that he's a great fit for our company. He's still letting me take the reigns on my training program that I've been wanting to redesign just as long as I make the underlying philosophy one that fits with his mission for our department, which I agree with 100%. It's a very exciting time with all of the growth we're undergoing!
Tomorrow morning I'm going to fill out more paperwork for the apartment I'm hoping to get! This means I might find out this week if I'm going to be able to get it! If I find out this week, I estimate that I'll be able to move in March 1 or 15. This could be a great month!
Have a fantastic Monday, friends!
