1, 2, 3, 4, FIVE...I'm Alive...Friday Five!

Hello There! 
Happy Friday! 

Thank you for all the warm wishes on Tuesday! I successfully made it thru my first days of work! It's completely overwhelming and I hate not knowing what to do and/or what I'm suppose to do. I'm constantly reminding myself to take it all and relax and learn.

I ran up to Ikea this week and picked up the stuff so I can start my table hack! I'm so excited. I hope to share it with you some time next week. If I never mention it again - that means it went horribly wrong and I trashed everything!

One of my goals for October is to try two new recipes. I'm very happy to report that I have one under my belt: Easy Lo Mein. It has "easy" right in the name so you know that had my name all over it! 
Instead of mushrooms - I used chicken. Same thing right?

I got my West Elm furniture delivery this week! 

I thought the chairs were going to be my favorite - but I LOVE the couch. I purchased the chairs and the couch without seeing them or sitting on them and I'm SO happy the couch is so soft and comfy and it looks great.  

Friday Funnies

With my new job - I now work weekends. First time I've had to do that since college -but I don't mind.

I hope you have a great weekend!

  11. I'm always the same way when I start a new job. I beat myself up for not knowing everything right away, even though I know it's an unrealistic expectation. Gotta just take things a day at a time! I'm glad it's going well! :)

  12. I'm intrigued by your table hack...what is it?! I can't get over how LONG your hair is! I LOVE your new furniture - so glad you're happy with it too! Congrats on making it through your first week at work and your new weekend schedule. You won't miss too much on the weekends - and think of all you'll get done on Mondays! I'd love to have a week day off. You'll be at the pool in the summer when everyone else is at work (and you'll have the pool to yourself!!!). Congrats, I'm so proud & happy for you!
