Friday Best

Hi guys! It's Friday - for me it's a touch sad because it means my week off in between gigs is up. It's been a good one - I've felt productive and also overwhelmed with all my to-do's. Lots of good hedgeway this week overall and I feel well rested and ready to start a new career path. I can't wait for my close commute and to be able to come home on lunch breaks.

Today is my Mom's birthday and also my future Father-in-Law's birthday - same age, same day, same hospital. Both of our Grandma's shared the same room when they had them - wild, yes? This weekend the Cattleman has his bachelor party on Saturday and I have my final wedding shower on Sunday. This one is thrown by my Bridesmaids and Family - looking forward to it! I'll be sure to take my good camera along and snag ample pictures.

Friday Best -- Last day at my current employer

Hey all! Happy Friday!
Today I say goodbye to my team + company & get to bask in a week off work to catch up on allll the life things. Then I'll be saying hello to a role as a Logistics Coordinator. This weekend things are low-key & I'm excited to get some time to be productive around the house. Can't wait to unpack more, organize and tidy up! Tonight we are doing dinner at a local spot with my family to celebrate my Dad's upcoming birthday on Monday + Father's Day in his honor..then Sunday we head to the Cattleman's parents for dinner to celebrate his Dad. We also had a friend gathering pop up & I may try to squeeze in a date night on Saturday.. Now, let's get right to this week's bests --

Goodbye Beacon Hill

Goodbyes are never easy and this one is especially hard. This week I say goodbye to my team at Beacon Hill and my role as a Recruiter. I've been with the company for nearly 5 years & have grown so much professionally & personally over this span of years. They have seen me through so many life changes & most of my team feels more like family than co-workers. My boss, the company, the culture - literally so great!

Wedding Update v.3

My Knot app tells me we have 67 days until our big day!! 9 weeks. Wow!

I shared my last  wedding update in April & since then we've had a few updates - but truthfully, not a ton. Our wedding has been on the poor back-burner with more pressing deadlines with my home sale + move. But alas, we are ready to punch the gas and put a plan in place to finish up all the pending to-dos. It's not a ton, but just enough to cause a touch of anxiety.

Weekend Vibes - At the Lake

We had a weekend away from it all at the lake. Away from the farm, away from all the unpacked boxes, away from the wedding to-do list. Which came at a perfect time as last week was a bit of a doozy - I received a job offer, submitted notice at work, and my boss & I told the team on Friday. This is my last week at work to tie up loose ends and transition things. It's going to be such a hard goodbye. But, my life is changing and this new role truly feels like such a blessing for myself and my new scenario.

Friday Best - Feels like Summer

Friday is here & we have a weekend at the lake to celebrate the Cattleman's cousin's 30th! Eager for swimming + dock time. Bonus - my boss is letting us cut out at noon today for hitting work goals. Yay! Also, my co-worker made homemade cinnamon rolls, someone brought in kolaches, and we have a mimosa/bloody mary bar set up -- Par-Tay!!

this week I'm switching it up and giving you f i v e things for this Friday --

Weekend Vibes - Wedding Shower + Natalie's Bachelorette

This weekend was the first of June & it was jam packed - as most Summer weekends tend to be.

First up - Friday was my official last day as a Maryland Heights homeowner. I ran to my home at lunch to give their agent a key, grab the lockbox I rented..and I just so happened to meet the new owners! They wanted to personally thank me for the gifts I left and so we all got to say a quick hello - they were an adorable, young couple!! I hope they have lots of fun memories + moments in my old home. No more, #SeeJessNest for me. Now it's on to Home Sweet Shouse.
