Hi, friends and happy Monday! I haven’t blogged in a week and let me tell you- I miss this place! Starting a new job and being less than 3 months out from a wedding can make a girl quite busy. The to-do lists just don’t seem to end! I hope everyone had a great Valentine’s/Gal-entine’s weekend and I wanted to take today to catch up on life a little bit… so let’s get to it.
First of all, thank you all for the sweet words and encouragement as I started my first job as a PA. I’m happy to report the first week went well! The main objectives were finding my way around the office and learning people’s names. Everyone is so friendly and helpful and I’ve already seen a lot of interesting conditions and procedures. It has been quite an adjustment though- long gone are the days of sleeping in and my back tends to hurt from standing all day… I feel like an old lady!! But when you’ve been off for 2+ months, it just takes some getting used to. I’ll report with more details in a few weeks!
On another note, I’ve been going strong with my workouts lately. My body is sore more days than not and operation #sweatingforthewedding is in full force. I signed up for Class Pass at the beginning of the month and LOVE it so far. After I take a few more classes, I’ll be doing a full review so stay tuned! And speaking of working out… I totally deserved this donut!
For Valentine’s Day (our 5th one together), Ryan took me out to a nice dinner at one of Charlotte’s oldest steakhouses, Beef ‘n Bottle. So we had beef… and a bottle (of delicious cabernet)! This place may not look like much from the outside, but the food and the service was top notch. I opted for the surf & turf entree- filet with a lobster tail with a side of creamed spinach. Mmmmmmm… SO good. This was our first time dining there but we’ll definitely be back. I highly recommend this place to all my Charlotte readers- it’s truly a hidden gem!
It’s supposed to snow today here in Charlotte but the high for tomorrow is 61 so… don’t think that will last long! I’m really looking forward to this week because it’s filled with lots of fun events- a birthday dinner for one of my besties, my old roommate coming to visit, and my bridal shower (super excited for this one)!!! We’re officially at 82 days until our big day so let the celebrations begin! Thanks for reading and hope your Monday is short and sweet 🙂
