Hey everyone! So, I apologize for kind of taking unplanned breaks in posting. When I started this blog, I wanted all of my content to be organic rather than forced so sometimes I’m just having gaps in what I want to share.
An update on my new job: thus far, I’m feeling pretty stressed and overwhelmed (read: I’m waking up most mornings dreaming about work and clenching my jaw…). Basically, I am trying to learn a loan originations software (developed by my company and the department I am now in), our loan originations process, and technical specs writing all at once. Needless to say, I am feeling nervous, challenged & truthfully dumb. I feel like I’m not really grasping a bunch and while everyone keeps saying to pretty much just throw caution to the wind and take chances at trying to complete some task, I keep getting frozen with fear and rather than having specific questions to ask my coworkers, I feel like saying “I don’t understand or know what I’m doing, help”, but I don’t really feel like I can say that. This truly is such a challenging time for me and hope and pray it pans out. I am ready to feel normal (or normal for me 😉) again.
Onto some pawsitive things meow! D and I attended a wedding yesterday for one of D’s childhood friend’s, and who D lived with for several years while we were dating. It was a black tie optional wedding so I did some shopping (always good when you have an excuse to shop!) and landed on this wine colored wide leg jumpsuit from Nordstrom. It was such a fab purchase! I love the high neck front and open back (very similar to my wedding dress ❤️). Sadly I didn’t get a full picture of the front or back because we were running a little behind and couldn’t do a little photoshoot, but you can see some of the front and back in these photos. I also purchased some gold faux leather block heels from DSW that I really like (I’m including a stock photo of them). Because it was a fancy shmancy event, I decided to wear my wedding earrings and bracelet again and D just so happened to wear his wedding suit. 😄 It was a fun evening and a beautiful wedding! Today the sun was FINALLY out! First on the agenda was brunch at Wild Love Bakehouse where D and I split their special focaccia, blood orange cornmeal pastry and a caramelized croissant type pastry. YUM We then hit some trails at Ijams Nature Center! We coverer about 4.5 miles and my legs are feeling it. The ground is total mush so you have to try extra hard while hiking so you don’t fall. I hope you all have had a fabulous and refreshing weekend!
