anniversary & test scores

Friday, October 14th, was my wedding anniversary. I’ve been married 5 years to an awesome dude. We’ve been together 8 years. To celebrate, we went on a date.
We had dinner at Heartland in St. Paul. I wish I would’ve written down what our exact dishes were. Their menu changes everyday, so I only have pictures to offer you. We each had a three course meal. He had the Flauna (meat), I had the Flora (veggie).

After dinner, we went to a show at the Ordway. We saw Come Fly Away With Me. It was a night to remember, for sure. Let’s just saw I was SHOCKED! I just read the description for the first time (my husband picked it out) and if I had read it before I went I would’ve never realized that the Swinging Night Club was an ACTUAL Swinging nightclub. As in, there was a lot of SWINGING, wink wink, if you get my gist. It was very sexy, very seductive, very much not for the prudes. which is what I felt like when in the middle of the show, the dancers started stripping & grinding on stage. I looked around to gather the audience’s reaction (my husband and I were probably the youngest in the crowd) (it was Frank Sinatra music, after all). To my surprise, the elders enjoyed rather fully and even gave a standing ovation!!!!! It was a very fun, sexy night.

The next night, we went to our monthly Dinner Club gathering. This month’s theme was Northern Indian. It was a rather enjoyable time had by all and the food was super yummy & true to its ethnicity. If you ever have a chance to do a dinner club, do it!!! It really is fun to get together and be foodies for an evening.

Oh, but mostly important, I took my husband on a little adventure to get a pedicure. Yup, that’s right. You see, I would offer to do his nails, but why not just have someone else do it? So, that’s what we did. We got the luxury pedicure. So, we had a sea salt scrub and a clay mask – all on our feet. All the while we sat in a massage chair!!! It was very pleasurable.

And now for the big news………..

I received my test score from the Administrative Assistant test. I got 111/136, 81%. But I did not make it to the next level (an interview). They were taking 90% and above. Gosh darn. Yesterday, I received two rejection letters. This is getting old.

  1. Your anniversary weekend sounds like it was wonderful!!!! Congratulations.

    Don’t let the job hunt get you down….somewhere, somebody, some company is gonna get a super talented, smart, energetic and enjoyable new employee and they will wonder how that got along without you!!!!!!

  2. I have been wanting to stat a dinner club– actually, that is something that I was JUST talking about last night!! I am sorry about the test– I cannot believe there were so many levels to getting an administrative job?
