I have been super super busy since Saturday morning. Sorry I’ve been gone for a few days, but I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and a painless Monday! Here’s what I’ve been up to lately:
Saturday morning I picked Alex up from the airport! I made the blueberry french toast bake (that I just posted) Friday night and stuck it in the oven as soon as we got back. It ended up being delicious, but huge! I would definitely recommend to make it when you have a large crowd and not just for two. Alex’s family is also in town so we spent a lot of time with them on Saturday. We also went truck shopping — but they were going to offer half of what we were expecting for Alex’s current truck. Bummer.
We met the fam at Red Lobster for dinner and headed out with friends later in the night. My best friend from growing up and I have recently been super busy and talking much less than normal. We finally got back in the swing of things and had a double date! It was sooo much fun! (yes, her name is Alex also 🙂 ). We took some great pictures and drank some deeeelicious beer! We laughed so hard my tummy hurt!! 🙂
Sunday morning we went to church. We went to the family and children service since we were going with two youngin’s! It was to cute and I was loving watching all th kids playing peek-a-boo with each other. After church we headed down to southern Maryland for an Easter brunch. Although it was over an hour away, it was a beautiful drive filled with great conversation. We ran some errands in the afternoon (Alex got new running shoes (finally!)) and I got ready for work bright and early this morning.
Today was my veeeery first day of work. Yes – I am officially a real person now. The day was filled with a very long orientation, paperwork, and legal shananigans. I really like the people I’ll be working with and I’m super excited for tomorrow. The problem is — Alex and I woke up at 5 to have enough time for a 3 mile run — and after my first long day, I am exhausted. I can’t wait to lay down!!!
