1 year, 2 burgers, 3 sisters

Happy Monday people. Is there such a thing? My boss is off all week, so I have a feeling things will be crazy, and that this week will fly by. My office does a lot of business with a relatively small (and new) staff, so missing just one person makes a huge difference.

Speaking of work- a couple of weeks ago I celebrated my one year anniversary with my company. This is a huge accomplishment for me, considering how my first experience in the "real job" department went. And considering that I rarely stick with anything and get tired of most things very easily. I am happy to report I still absolutely love my job, and hope that there is room for me to grow there for many years to come.

This weekend was calm, and actually didn't fly by for once. Friday we hung around the house, and went on a late night dinner date to grab some burgers and beers. Saturday Will was gone for most of the day helping a friend move, so I did some major cleaning. We recently bought a carpet cleaner, so I tried that out on the living room carpets. It was unbelievable how gross dirty tank water was after just about two months of living here. I will be keeping up these cleanings every month. I also cut the grass for the first time in my entire life. I was hoping I'd go to my grave without ever having to complete this task, but it just needed to be done. It's not the prettiest thing I've ever seen, but I got the job done!

My helper. She's not very effective.

Saturday night we went to Terry's Turf Club. It's a must go to in Cincinnati, but neither of us had ever been. We met Will's best friend and his new wife there, and all four of us loved our food. I had an egg sandwich with chorizo that was out of this world. Terry's has been featured on Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives, and I can see why. We will be back! We ended that night with drinks at a bar in our old neighborhood. I'm loving the burbs, but it was good to be back in the city for the evening.

My sisters are coming to visit next weekend, and will be staying with us for the whole week! I love those two more than words can express. Each year that they get older, the gap in our ages is less and less apparent. Mom won't be able to stay with them this time, and I love that they're old enough to visit even when she can't get off of work. I have King's Island, bowling, pool days, planting flowers, lots of baking, shopping, and church festivals on our to-do list. I can't for the life of me remember what I did for fun at 13 and 14, so hopefully I'm not too boring in my old age.

Linking up with Sami.

Here's to the week flying by! Happy Monday!

Your dog is seriously adorable! You've given me insecurity about what must be lurking in my carpet, I should definitely get a steamer out here one of these days!

Have fun with your sisters. When I was 13 or 14 I'm pretty sure I thought any time away from mom was the coolest thing ever so you've already got an advantage!

Sounds like a nice weekend filled with some fun and productive stuff!! We have a steam cleaner for our carpet, and it is TOTALLY disgusting how dirty the water is when cleaning! Yuck!
