In the past week I...
- Worked the last day at a job I truly loved and said good-bye to all my people
- Packed up most of my belongings
- Dealt with annoying car trouble
- Went to Mexico for a 3 day weekend getaway with Brittany and friends
- Started a brand new job upon returning from Mexico
- Moved my life up to Encinitas
Mexico was basically the most fabulous budget-friendly getaway with girlfriends I could ever imagine. We stayed in a beautiful house with ocean views for days in Las Gaviotas, a gated community just south of Rosarito. The cost was so insignificant that it's actually kind of ridiculous. Every house in the community has a view of the ocean because of the way they're built upwards, like a stadium, and everyone has access to a large shared pool, hot tub and private beach.
We laid on the beach, floated on a giant raft in the ocean, ate lobster in the nearby town of Puerto Nuevo and went out for a night of drinks, dancing and a fabulous karaoke performance by yours truly (which Brittany has footage of for future blackmail). It was a total blast and I highly recommend making a trip down there if you're in southern California. I felt like we made out like bandits with our sweet little house and awesome rooftop but apparently that's just standard.
I moved basically everything on Wednesday after work and I am getting all settled in up in Encinitas. I struck gold with my apartment and roommate situation. She's truly incredible. I came home from work today to her baking cookies and then tweeting along with me while I co-hosted a Twitter party. When I finished my run tonight, I had a bowl of her homemade chicken noodle soup. Yeah, I know. Pinch me.
And this is my new running route...
I think it is totally appropriate to end with the hashtag #blessed. Goodnight, y'all!
