So if you are a reader you know that Wednesday was my last day at Gallo. I was supposed to start my new job today, but on Wednesday I got a job offer from 1 of my top 3. The job I was supposed to start today was a GREAT job and I know I would have been happy there and I was super excited to be there, but when I received the new offer, I knew I had to accept. It was not only 8 miles from home, but it was an amazing career opportunity, somewhere I can be long term & a great resume booster. I am so excited about my new opportunity- huge international company and again it IS 8 MILES FROM HOME!!!! :) I felt absolutely terrible about having to back out of the other position, I was literally sick for like 4 days, but I have received advice from a ton of very successful people and I am finally starting to feel better. I am looking forward and trying to never look back. I love my life, my career and my family!
So, Friday after all the job stuff was done the hubby and I left for a Bed and Breakfast weekend. We drove up to Blue Ridge GA, went horseback riding and then checked into our BandB. It was our first time and immediately we were sooo impressed. The place was beautiful and the people were so nice. We went for a walk around town to grab lunch and most places closed around 2, well we wanted a sandwhich so we went to this cafe and the lunch side was closed, but the people still served us- how rare is that? They were very nice! We relaxed and played scrabble and watched TV and went in our personal jacuzzi and it was so amazing. I love spending quality time with my husband. Then, we got some rest and woke up for the breakfast part- sausage breakfast pizza and homemade peach cobbler- YUM! it was delish! Next, we went on a hike. We did the "intermediate" 6.5 mile hike- woooh! It was rough, I am not lying when I say every part of our body was sore about 3 hours after finishing, lol, I guess we need to hit the gym more.
It was a short, but wonderful trip and we headed home to go to dinner with my best friend for her birthday. Happy Birthday Shell! We went to Mary Mac's Team room, it was our first visit and it was pretty good. Sunday, we woke up and watched some True Blood on the DVR- which I will say is getting weirder and weirder, but we are still hooked. Then, we went and got lunch and took the dogs to the dog park where we wore them out playing fetch. We were so proud of Oreo, she got along with all the other doggies. :) Last night, we went to dinner and a movie with our amazing friends Jamie and Keith and today, I begin my 2 weeks off. Sent in all my paperwork, doing laundry now and then dry cleaners, grocery store and Lowe's to pick AL up a new lawn mower belt....I think I can handle 2 weeks as a stay at home wife :) I want to soak them up, because while it is not my cup of tea, I must say I am going to enjoy these 2 weeks.
Oh- and as a side note, I will be picking up my new droid in a couple weeks and will be posting more pictures to my blog then to catch you up on our B&B weekend, dining room makeover, etc. :)
