guess who got a new job this week??
DJ's been freelancing since we got to GA and has been doing really well for himself, but just he landed himself a fulltime gig at a local start-up! this guy, I swear - he hasn't written a resume since he graduated college and people just keep offering him great jobs. I guess it helps to be extremely charming and good at what you do [and have an amazingly supportive and beautiful wife... maybe? no? well, worth a shot]. he took a big risk to follow his heart and change career paths to do what he loved and it's paying off... so proud of you jiggs!
30 before 30 list! DJ's friend Joey called us and said he had some extra tickets to the Braves v. Nationals game on Tuesday and offered them to us... so a group of us headed to Turner Field and watched the game. High: Great seats! Right behind the Nationals Dugout and a spontaneous night out with friends. Low: The Bravos lost and I didn't get any cotton candy. sad day. I'm excited to go to see them play again on the 12th vs the Marlins! here are some pictures from the game....
guess who is going to try not to eat meat for the next month??
yup. this gal.
[definitely not that dog...and yes, I am wearing shorts - thanks for asking]
yup. 30 days: no meat allowed. they say it takes 30 days to make or break a habit. when we were in the berkshires, we didn't eat a lot of meat at all, and when we did it was grass-fed and almost always local so we knew were it was coming from and that it wasn't loaded with chemicals or hormones. since we've been in GA I can't say that's the case. not that I eat a lot of meat, but I'm not sure it's the quality that I really want to be eating. not to mention, I know there a lot of health benefits that come from not eating meat so why not see how my body handles it? I mean, if it's good enough for Bill. who knows, after 30 days I could not want it anymore - or I could immediately scarf down a bacon cheeseburger. either way, I tried something out.quite honestly, I think I'm going to miss sushi the most. pescatarianism anyone? maybe I'll do that after my meatless month. I know some people may think it's silly, but whatever, as bobby says - it's my prerogative.
[couldn't leave Ollie out now could we??]
lastly, SO excited for college football starting today!!!!
that was me being really excited.
