I had a great birthday weekend!  I got to experience Chuck E. Cheese for the first time ever.  Verdict? I probably would have liked it as a kid.  As an adult, not so much. Not a #jesspicks at all.  But my 7-year old cousin enjoyed it and that was the goal. And I did get to spin the wheel and throw some footballs so there’s that.  😆
Birthday brunch with my girls was everything I expected and more. 🥂  My sister even got me the cutest tiara to wear.  We went to Beatrix (also a first time) and I enjoyed waffles, turkey bacon, and a mimosa.  Also, caramel pie which was a truly delightful experience.  The theme of my gifts?  Self-care.  Pajamas, coloring books, bath and body awesomeness and a bracelet for healing.  My peeps know me well.  💆🏽‍♀️
This marks the end of my third week at the new job. Some things are starting to click!  It’s such a great feeling when that happens.  I was able to moderate a hiring panel, do some one-on-ones and I taught my first workshop.  All good things.  I’m constantly reminding myself that the overwhelm is normal, not everything I do will be perfect the first time (because it’s all new) and I’ll find my rhythm eventually.  
On to the picks for the week!
P.S. I’m doing a networking event on Monday with some other cool entrepreneurs in the Chicago area. If you are free, come on out. I’d love to see you!
