Friday Five!

{Rockwell evening celebrating a household completely student loan FREE!}

This week was such a high! I would have thought that having our biggest presentation of the year scheduled on Monday would make the week seem longer, but it did the opposite. It kicked my week off in the best, most motivating way possible. After having another stellar year, and being able to show that to our Senior Leadership board at GFS (or Gordon Food Service per the exciting announcement that was released this week), I felt a huge weight lifted off my shoulders and really set the tone for the week. 

In other news, last week I got serious with my budget (you have to hold me accountable guys!), and, as of this week Max and I are both student loan free. It feels really great to wipe our hands clean of that debt! We celebrated with a Rockwell happy hour downtown and the positive, festive vibe has not worn off all week.

Cheers to another weekend! A weekend that will be spent preparing my house for the holidays, drinking champagne with girlfriends and perhaps finishing up the Fall bucket list!

{happy happy team! These presentations are always the last big stress on my mind of the calendar year… it’s all holiday cheer from here on out}
