I found these pictures from last summer with Greg. We went to the Braves game on Fourth of July with his parents.I love how bright the colors are and I can just feel summer coming around the corner just by looking at them. I know, I'm so corny and nerby but I just wanted to post because they were so cute and I hadn't seen/found them until now!

I gave in and ordered from an infomericial. BUT...I am so excited about it! For about $150 and change I got the complete P90X training system. I already had a yoga mat, and some 5lb dumbbells but I did have to add some resistance bands so a trip to Wal-Mart supplied those for about $8.

For those of you who don't know what P90X is, it's a 90 day in home training program that completely transforms your body. A lady I know lost 12 lbs in the first four weeks and was absolutely loving it. She swore by the program (and pretty much every guy and a few girls I know through work) and LOVES it so I figured I'd give it a try.

I am going to follow the nutrition program to a tee (or as best as I can given my schedule and lifestyle) and I can't wait to see the results!!! June 29th here I come!

So this weekend has been great. Although I am now working Saturdays at Slender Solutions I am still able to find some time for myself, friends, family and of course, Greg. This weekend I worked at the Auburn store and got in at 8:30 in the morning, I was off by 4:00 and headed home for a quick change and shower to get ready for my Mom and Steve. They were going to pick me up at 5:00 and head to the baseball game. (Note, Steve is my mom's boyfriend.) Greg had to work until seven so we stayed until the very end of the baseball game and then met him at Mellow Mushroom.

It was an absolutely gorgeous day! I am happy that I am able to work and be productive during the morning and still have time at night for some socializing and what not. Greg met us at Mellow at about 7:30 and we had a great meal. Mellow is one of our favorite places! We each had a calzone and a few beers. After that Mom and Steve went home and Greg and I were going to go see Knowing, the new Nicholas Cage movie, but were both too tired from the day! So we headed home to relax and watch some basketball before calling it a night.

Today I am busy getting some things done. I have to complete my GMAT prep assignments for this week, go grocery shopping, pick up a couple goodies at Bath and Body Works, go tanning, take a run, and make dinner. I am cooking Sherpard's Pie with rolls and a salad. And...I've been checking some things off of my list for Greg and I's one year anniversary. I know we are going to do gifts and as always I wanted to get him something special that he will really enjoy. I am afraid to post it on here because I do know that when he's REALLY bored he reads my blog. So for fear of runing that surprise it will have to wait until April 12, 2009 to be posted. But it's sooooo good!

That's all for now, hope ya'll have a great week to come.

So who's ready for some March Madness? I completed my bracket the other day and I am excited to see how many I pick right. A couple years ago I did pretty well and finished close to 86% or so! I picked Duke to win the tournament this year and I really didn't have too much upsets. Hope everyone is having a great Thursday. It is so warm and sunny and beautiful out. I can't wait to leave work at 5:30 and go for a run.

So I have not posted now in almost two weeks because I have just been so busy with work, which is definitely a good thing! Last week we debuted our new mortgage product... we can now originate FHA home loans! They are backed by the US Gov't so they offer rates at 4.75% and pretty much everyone qualifies. So if you know anyone interested in refinancing, now is the time to do so!

Anyways,I have been meeting with so many clients and working up so many deals that last Thursday I was in the office until 9:30 at night. Then I just started my new part time job last Saturday. So I was doing that from 9-4. I am working for my friend Deanna's body wrap salon, Slender Solutions. There is a store in Auburn and Montgomery and I am just wrapping for her on Saturdays to earn some extra cash. Since I had so many deals from last week that I had to get faxed up on Monday I came into the office on Sunday and worked for about four hours or so. I ended up putting in almost a 60 hour work week between everything.

This week has been better, but I have been coming in at 8am instead of 830 just to get extra work done. I am so glad to be busy, because not only am I getting overtime, but once these deals close in a couple months it will mean really nice bonuses!

And great news for Greg! He started his new job with Sam's Club last Friday. He is working in the Tire and Battery Department. And he loves it. Did you know you can get a Sam's membership for only $35 for a full year? And, if you buy your tires from Sam's you get free rotate and balance for life.

Hope everyone has a Happy Hump Day!
