First Week at My New Job!

Posted By: Leah
Hi Everybody! I'm back! I wish I could say I'm for real back... like I just typed this post and hit publish. This one is scheduled like the last few have been. But the difference is this post is it was written after I have started my new job!

Let me just tell you, saying the first few days were very hectic was an understatement. I took on an  outside, non-new job opportunity as well that week. I'm am over-achiever, or really just too nice to say No. But after the initial blur of the new job and getting the other things balanced, I really started enjoying myself. I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity for this new job. Everyone there has been so supportive, encouraging and is so thrilled for me to be on their team.

I of course can't get specific with details, but I will tell you that this April, May and June are going to be really busy. I will get a chance to travel to some new destinations for work and also travel for a wedding! Gav will get to fly to the wedding together. I've mentioned this before, but Gav is soo thrilled I will be traveling a little with my new job. Gav can't wait to stay with his dad and other family members.

On Friday, BF came up to hang out with Gav and I. He picked Gav up from his afterschool. I was really busy at the new job, but happened to glance down at my cell and saw BF had texted and called me several times saying to look out my window at work. This is what I saw...

BF and Gav outside with a sign! it says "We <3 mom="" nbsp="" p="" u="">Is this not the sweetest thing ever?

BF had gotten Gav and they colored the sign at his afterschool. And apparently they had been outside for an hour waiting for me to look out the window.

BF had put this on facebook, tagged me and told me to look outside. 

Most people were gone by then, but I had to show someone and share in the excitement of BF and Gav surprising me. My boss was there and I am sure I freaked her out when I told her to come quickly and look out my window lol.  She thought it was soo sweet of them too and had me invite them up to the office. 

Here are a few more photos from the past week or so.
This was from Wednesday, that was when I was able to come home for lunch for the first time... ever from any job. I was so excited that I posted a picture of my Smart Ones lunch on IG.

The weekend before BF had also come up to help me get organized and ready for my new job. We got  mani/pedis (BF's first!) and I got fresh shellac nails.

I also got my hair cut to get ready for the job. 

I have worn the same work clothes for years. And years and years. I picked up a few new things from Kohls, Ann Taylor, and Express. I was soo thrilled to get these LC earrings from Kohls for $7.
