Nothing to do with weight loss...

Looks like it is time for another post seeing that I havent blogged in 10 days! Wow! Time just flys by these days...phew! But this isnt going to be too long since it is 1:30 in the morning :) I was reading everyone's blogs and thought I would give a little late night/early morning shout out to my blogger friends!

In some exciting news...I met a fellow blogger, Kim, last week!! We had a fabulous dinner together and had much to talk about! She is a such a nice girl and we discovered that we have so many things in common so that was neat! And yes, of course....we took a picture together (below) outside the restaurant! I have been meaning to post it for about a week now but I have been a slacker! She also had foot surgery last Wednesday, for those of yall who may not follow her blog yet, but it sounds like the surgery went well and I wish her the best of luck recovering!! Hope to see you again once you start to recover and learn to walk on those dang crutches!



In some other exciting news, I am starting my new job on Monday! I will be working as an auditor for TruGreen. If any of yall arent familiar, it is a lawncare/landscaping company. My boyfriend works in their marketing department and told me about the job opening. It pays more than my current job at Anthropologie and the hours are better and more consistent so I decided it was time to move on and take the opportunity. I had an interview last Thursday and the boss man called me Friday to let me know I was chosen for the position if I wanted to take it. I am not good with change and especially since I have been with Anthropologie for 2 years but like most retail jobs, it doesnt pay well and the hours are long and can be late into the night so this will be less stressful and laid back. Of course the huge HUGE downside of this is....NO MORE DISCOUNT :( When you have been shopping at this amazing store for years and gotten the great discount on clothes, home goods, furniture, everything....you get alittle spoiled to it. So because Friday of this week is my last day, my mom and I are splurging and having ourselves a little shopping spree on Thursday night! I am pretty excited about it but sad to be leaving such wonderful merchandise! Anyways....blah blah blah! I am taking this new job head on and I am thankful the opportunity has come my way and I will give it the best I have :)

PS-If any of yall know people that may work for TruGreen or have in the past, let me know!

I guess that is all for now. Hope everyone has a great Tuesday! Biggest Loser and American Idol tonight!! I will be tivo-ing it and watching it late tonight because I am going with some girlfriends to dinner and to see "The Last Song". Have yall seen that movie yet? Feedback? Like it? The boy in it is so dreamy so I am quite excited!


Oh yeah...Birthday countdown for me: 5 days!!


Ok for real this time. Bye :)

  13. We often make excuses when it comes to losing weight. Because of this, we stop ourselves from doing our diet routine, gain more weight and get disappointed in the end. How do you stop making those weight loss excuses? You make many weight loss excuses and it automatically comes in without realizing it.
