Hi darlings! Sorry I have been MIA; work drained me this week. I was COMPLETELY on my OWN because EVERYONE in my office was either on vacation or working out of town. Talk about nerve-wracking! I'm only a temp who has been there less than three months! I guess it shows that they have faith in my skills and abilities otherwise I wouldn't have been left on my own. It surprisingly went VERY well, but I was SO busy. I'm looking forward to having my co-workers back next week!
Tonight Ashlee and I are going to The Matador to celebrate our birthday with a few local friends. I'm really looking forward to it! I see stuffed jalapenos, nachos and margaritas in my future! Yum!
