When Mondays are Great
...this is how I'm feeling after a super amazingly totally unexpected first day of the week:
Water, Water Everywhere
... but thanks to Target's abundant stash of spirits, at least there's wine to drink.
(Shameless poem reference there.)
But seriously, really hoping my amazing new office continues to stay above water so I can do my new job sans scuba gear.
Me after 1.5 weeks into my new role with the best employer on earth.
New Employment Just Happened
First week in my new role at this new amazing corporation, and I must say that I have completely fallen head over heels in love with this place and everything about it.
Dream Job? CHECK.
New Mexico Just Happened
. . . and it was all kinds of Los Ojos Saloon, Kyoto Sushi & Steak House, Walatowa Pueblo, and Kiwanis Cabin amazingness.
Life is so worth living with these types of memories to be had.
Sandia Crest Hike
Today was the first full day visiting my folks in New Mexico and we most certainly made the most of it as evidenced by this slideshow of the Sandia Crest hike Dad and I took on and conquered nicely. Weather? Perfect at @73 degrees even though we expected colder temps, bringing jackets just in case but ending up wearing them around our waists unnecessarily. Then after landing all of the perfect photo opportunities and feeling confident about our overall hike achievement, we finished off the afternoon in the best way possible by eating Gyoza, Sushi, and Bento boxes at Kyoto Sushi and Steak House, the best meal I've encountered in longer than I can remember and one that I hope to repeat again soon. So this whole hike through the Sandian Mountainside experience was not on my bucket list but entirely should have been. So in retrospect of it all? CHECK.
