Weekend & This Week {3/23}

Hello all and happy Monday!

If you are in the midwest and received snow this morning, you have my sympathies. I really think that is awful. #thisiswhyIleft

Sharing my weekend and upcoming plans today by linking up with BLoved Boston!

Friday: Awful day. Two interviews, 2 meetings, a million phone calls and a failed trip to the bridesmaid dress store. By the time I got home, all I wanted to do was go to bed. But Aaron and I had already agreed to go to dinner with friends at the new American Food & Beverage restaurant in buckhead. So off we went!

The food was actually really good. I had a creamed broccoli soup, some salad, and a eggplant sandwich.  By the time my sandwich came, I was way too full, so I just had them wrap it and I took it home.

Saturday: I helped with an awesome session on the confidence gap between men and women. There were some fantastic panelists who shared their experiences with finding a mentor, creating work-life balance, and achieving success in the workplace. I was so inspired.

Aaron and I went on a long walk in the afternoon. We went through piedmont park, all through midtown, and then home. I clocked in over 5 miles!

Saturday dinner was simple: pizza from Antico with a side of steamed broccoli. We rented the movie "The Theory of Everything," which was so so sad, but wonderful. Have you seen this? What were your thoughts? I loved the film, but it made me cry more than once. Such a heartbreaking story.

Sunday: Church, where we picked up our trophies from the 5k we did two weekends ago. I told Aaron I was going to put this in our living room on display - haha.
