It’s Monday…Hello.

29 Jul

Hello Monday,

This is the last Monday that I will go to the job that I’ve had for the past 6 years. This is the last Monday that I will sit at my microscope and check emails, the last Monday that I will chat with friends, enjoy lunch together and go on walks during our breaks. This is such a bittersweet time in my life to realize that today was the last full day at the company where I first started my career as a Cytogenetics Technologist. I have many fond memories of my journey there. I even met my husband there. I grew, I learned, and I experienced so much there. I will miss many things, mostly the people. I have worked with some amazing people in my career, and I will miss the strong working relationships we shared. I am hopeful that I will build new ones at my new job, I am hopeful for new beginnings, a new sense of motivation, and new friendships. I am excited for my new journey!

After work, I went to return some dress pants that I bought last week. I ended up finding some much more affordable ones at Costco of all places. So, I returned the others, but of course I ended up buying something else while I was there. I’ve been in a buying mood lately! I bought a starter kit of Bare Minerals make-up. I have always heard good things about it, and I like that there are only five ingredients used in it. I was hooked when they asked if they could put some on me. I don’t often wear make-up, but I think I should start since I am getting older, and my skin isn’t as young looking as it once was. Do you use Bare Minerals or have you heard anything about it? I am kind of having buyer’s remorse, and I can’t decide if I should keep it or not. Heehee.

After my shopping trip, I picked up some dinner and headed home to my boys. After an early dinner, I took Little Mr. to the park where he explored and explored. He loves walking around and picking things up off the ground. He loves to pick flowers and play in the dirt. It was a really nice evening. All in all, it wasn’t such a bad Monday.

Oh yeah, we also got a new dishwasher delivered (after suffering with our barely functioning one for a year!), and my hubby installed it. I’m so proud of him! He’s never been much of a “handy man”, but he’s been doing a lot of projects around the house lately. I’m excited to start making some home improvements now that he’s in the handy man mode! ๐Ÿ˜‰

How was your Monday? Eventful or just another Monday? Hopefully, there was some excitement in it or something that made you smile. ๐Ÿ™‚

Hello, Monday…

Hello, Monday.

Why are you robbing me of my weekend? I don’t want to go back to work already!! It was a great weekend, and I just don’t won’t it to end. Wah!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Don’t rob me of sunny days with my boys, playing outside and soaking up the sunshine…

Swinging Swimming

His favorite thing to do is get in and outย of his pool.ย In andย out! Hehe…it’s too cute!

The hubby and Iย finally got a date night. It was long overdue. We went to dinner and walk on the pier afterwards. It was a great time!

I had the beef short ribs and the hubs had filet mignon. Sooooo yummy!!

We also finally watched Bridesmaids. It was hilariously embarrassing! It was hard to watch at times, but it had some really funny parts!

I am sad to see the weekend go, but at least this week is a short one. Yay 4th of July!

How was your weekend?

Hello Again, Monday.

17 Jun

Hello again, Monday. You sure do come around quickly! Why do the weekends have to be so short?

Even though it was a short one (and my little guy was teething and unhappy a lot of the time), we had a good one.

We played at the park on Friday and Saturday…

playing, park, grass, baby

My little man really loves to be outside. Playing in the grass makes his day! ๐Ÿ™‚

daddy, Father's day, baby, park, playing

He sure loves his daddy too! We spent the afternoon with my hubby’s family for Father’s Day. It was a nice day. ๐Ÿ™‚

I don’t have high hopes of today being a nice day though. I have jury duty. Boo! I hope I get released early!!

I sure hope you are nice to me, Monday.

And, I sure hope today and the rest of the week flies by because I am really looking forward to meeting one of my bloggy friends from A Fox & A Wolf on Friday!

How is your Monday going so far? What do you have planned for this week, anything exciting?

Hello Monday.

Hello to getting back in the swing of things after being in Vegas for the past three days. What a trip!

Las Vegas strip

Hello to unpacking and laundry. Boo!

Hello to being reunited with my boys. Yay!

Me and my boy

Hello to having the day off to rest and recuperate. I need it!

Hello to getting back on track with eating right and working out. It’s hard to stay on track when you’re living out of a suitcase. I don’t know how some people travel all the time for work. That would be tough.

Hello to blogging again. Did everyone enjoy Megan’s guest post while I was away? She’s so fun! Love her!

Hello to a beautiful sunny day that I plan on enjoying with my family.

Hello to the start of an awesome week! Stay positive my friends and good things will happen!
