Good News & Bad News

We have had a fantastic, busy last three days.

First and foremost, my hubby was hired Friday, on the day his internship ended, for a full time job! What a blessing. The restaurant is well known, but smaller, so we thought the chances were slim to none of him getting hired now (we thought maybe they'd call him in the future). I am so proud of my hardworking man. 

When I got off of work Friday night, we headed about 80 miles south to go visit family and friends for the weekend. My husband's parents and grandparents all live there as well as many of our friends. Stephen had a "dude night" while I enjoyed night out with my college roommate {of 4 years}. It was a fun time. My roommate and I went to two of our favorite bars and had some yummy cocktails!

Saturday morning, I woke up to find a text from my husband that said  something like "I am up, come get me asap so we can go see my grandparents." Great, I woke up a few minutes later, hopped in the shower, and was on my way to get him. Except not. I backed out of the parking space I was in and turned to go down the hill. As I went down, all I heard was a "thump, thump, thump." Great, I have heard that before with my previous car. I had a flat. NOT a fun surprise. There was a lady outside smoking who watched my face as I realized I had a flat, and she also watched me get out and assess the situation, in which I immediately responded with "crap". I didn't want to wait for AAA to arrive, so my roommate kindly took me to pick up Stephen who was able to put the spare on. Once the tire was off, we saw a nail shoved all the way inside the tire. That was the problem. Luckily, Les Schwab is a life saver and fixed it for free since I had their tires! That was the best part of the bad situation- a free fix.

It was hard to capture a picture that actually looked accurate. The whole bottom part of the tire was flat.
Anyways, it is fixed, and just like new.

The rest of the weekend we spent with his dad and family. We hung up, chit chatted, and went to happy hour. It was much needed and great to see everyone. We stayed the night at his mom's house and went to his sisters soccer game- it was at 9:20 PM. Late game but we enjoyed it.

We were able to shop around some of our favorite stores in town and do the things we enjoyed doing them we lived there.

I'd say the weekend was a success. Hope you all have a great week!
