This week was a total whirlwind blur while at the same time moving a bit slowly. I know that doesn’t make any sense but I don’t know how else to describe it. As I mentioned last week, we are in the process of moving to Charlotte and I’m going back and forth for the next couple of weeks to work in Charlotte during the week and come back to Raleigh on weekends to pack/prepare for the move. It’s a bit exhausting and by the time I made it back on Friday night I was absolutely wiped.
My first week at work went well! I got to meet with some potential clients and get to know another one of the attorneys from the Charlotte office, as well as seeing the Charlotte office space, which is gorgeous and has a fabulous view! (see above)! In my downtime, which there was a bit of, I helped my mom with some errands (listing artwork for sale, going to the storage unit etc.). I cooked her dinner almost every night as a little thank you for letting me crash in her guest bedroom for three weeks. I made her carbonara, veal with roasted brussels sprouts, ham/bean/escarole soup, and baked cod with artichoke risotto (risotto recipe coming up Friday!) I got cute texts from Muggsy (technically Matt) all week, such as:
Back in Raleigh, on Saturday, Matt and I went to Cooper’s, that I’ve told you about before. Got the collards and cabbage this time and it was delicious! On Sunday morning I went to brunch with my friend Stephanie at The Oxford in downtown Raleigh. The picture on the right is my first plate, of two. I highly recommend their brunch!
Muggsy had gone into the pantry, grabbed the box of cake flour, opened the bag all over the couch and was eating it upon my return. Fabulous.
Anyway, it’s back to Charlotte in the morning for another week of work then back to Raleigh next weekend again! I’ll be relieved when all this shuttling back and forth is over and I can really enjoy our new adventure in Charlotte! So what were you guys up to last week? Any good plans for this week?
