Well, we made it through the first full workweek of 2016! It feels good! I’ve been incredibly productive this week so I feel like I completely deserve the fun weekend I’m about to have! I’ll be in Colorado by tonight to reunite with my best college friends. We’re gathering because one of our own is having a baby! I’m one of three girls throwing her a baby shower on Saturday (I knew nothing about baby showers until recently but now I feel like quite a little pro!). Then on Sunday, I’m flying to Phoenix to go to The College National Championship football game. I can’t wait for the game on Monday… Roll Tide! Work will be a rude awakening on Tuesday morning. Yes, I’m taking Monday off work and yes I’m flying back to LA at the crack of dawn on Tuesday for work. It will all be worth it! Cheers!
