Hi Nicole! Yikes! Where has the month gone? I can't believe it's December already. Thanksgiving was good. I went to the boy's house, and then my roommate's house after. Two Thanksgivings for us... YIKES! I've been scared to weigh myself since then (I think I probably ate the weight of a small child), but I'm getting back on track today. I drove to KC and did Thanksgiving with grandma this past weekend and just got back last night. Okay, Thanksgivings (THREE!!!!) are over, and it's time to get serious. This year my major goal is to treat the holiday time as individual special events, and not "the Holidays". I get treats during the special events, not all the time in between (meaning... I did NOT bring home the pie I made for Grandma's Thanksgiving. Throw it away if you must, but I'm not bringing it home!).

So... shall we start a new thread? A Holiday Challenge? Take us through New Years since it's a crazy time of year? Okay, I"m gonna go ahead and do it! Chat soon!

xoxo

Nicole- So... got an e-mail. The princess thing is a no-go. Apparently they want someone who is going to be more "regular" or something like that. Oh well... I'm okay with that. I guess moving around a lot doesn't help with some situations. *sigh* I'm not too stressed. After doing my first "test round," I wasn't crazy about the people and the way they ran things, so I'm okay with things working out the way they did.
Yeah, keep at it with the craigslist thing, it's all about timing. You never know just when people need what you're listing.
Okay, back to work. I had the whole day off today, and I've been keeping busy doing a lot of little things that have been adding up. Some I just haven't gotten to, so I've been avoiding. I've really plowed through my to-do list, but there are a few more things I'd like to get done before I call it a night. Hope your workout went well!

xoxo

erin- ya i just have to get my butt in gear. im going to get out there next week. i hope day 1 was good for you! that sucks your princess job was cancelled. im sure u will be a wonderful princess! i havent had luck with craigs list yet but im not giving up. im going to wait til it expires and then relist it at a lower price. i just wana make a few bucks instead of giving it away. i have a kettlebell workout planned for tonight. i also have a cool app with a ton of workouts, from walking to biking to weights and even yoga. they give you step by step and a timer and some workouts are only a few mins and some are over an hour so you can choose what you do. its nice ive used it a couple times.
happy hump day
talk to you soon!

Nicole- I'm sorry you weren't feeling well this weekend. Hope you are feeling better! You are SO right... you do just have to put yourself out there. Decide that you want to do something- and go for it. I think starting with the florist and golf course are a GREAT idea. Just don't let something you can't control (the economy) get in your way... try and try again- and you can do what you want. I know it's not easy, but you (we) can do it!
It's funny... because this is what I've been trying to tell myself lately. Chalene started her jumpstart on 11/11 (my birthday) and because of my birthday weekend, I'm a bit behind. I should be on Day 3 today... but I haven't got to day one yet. Yuck. OH well... I'm going to go ahead and hopefully get myself rolling today. No, strike that- I WILL do day 1 today... and go from there.
As for the princess thing, it's really weird. I was supposed to do a princess visit on Saturday, but it was canceled. And they didn't tell me until Thursday afternoon (when they obviously knew much sooner). That is so frustrating. I mean, I enjoyed having the morning off... to sleep in a get some stuff done, but still! Frustrating.
Good luck with craigslist. I've sold a couple of things on there, and it just seems to be hit or miss. Make sure you ask for cash when someone does agree to buy something... you don't want a check that bounces! It's kind of weird, yes... but hey, I got $80 from a couple things that were just cluttering up my storage space at the time.
Anywho... I'm off to try and catch up on my PUSH challenge, do some laundry, and workout before heading to work this evening!
Happy Monday!

Erin happy bday! Sorry its late :( that is an amazing birthday. Sounds like you had a ton of fun. Good for you, you deserve it! I'm so happy for you that u like it there! Are you.a singing princess yet? I wasn't feelingso great this weekendso I didn't work out but I did get my dining room chairs finished! I know I'll be done w the whole dining room by end of nov but I hope to have the majority done by the weekend. So I'm going to at least start looking for a second job. We really need money n i wanna get a job that could help me in my goal of being a wedding planner so I'm going to start w florist and then maybe the local golf course where I had my wedding. Now I just have to put myself out there. I'm afraid with the bad economy n my lack of experience I won't have much luck but I have to try! I also have some stuff to sell on craigslist I've never done it before but hey y not try to make a few bucks on stuff I'm not using ok I'm doing this on my phone n its starting to mess up. Talk to u soon

Yikes! Still getting settled and getting into a routine. I've had a busy week- but it's been good. I LOVE living with Audrey and having Daniel around. It's been really great... and really good for me. I've definitely learned some things about him that I've never realized before... and the same goes for him (learning about me). So far, though... things have been good.

Yesterday was my birthday and it was PERFECT! :) Seriously... It was amazing. I had to work a lunch shift, but it was a good lunch... good pace and I made pretty good money without going crazy. After that, I came home to find Daniel waiting for me with a bouquet of lillies (my favorite!!!) and ready to take me to the mall (I had mentioned wanting to buy a new outfit for dinner later that evening). We went to the mall, found the Express and he put up with me as I had a minor girly break-down because I wasn't liking anything that the sales ladies kept bringing me (seriously though, obviously I don't like this style- so stop trying to put me in it!). He was super awesome and supportive and told me when he didn't like things... and the three dresses he liked... and the one he REALLY liked... which was the one I bought (yay for coupons and birthday rewards!!!)
So... then we came home, got ready and headed out for the night. Dinner was a Cuban Tappas restaurant that was absolutely delish. He was really encouraging me to order the ones I wanted/liked... even though he's not really a fruit or veggie guy (ahhh!!!!). However, I found one that I really wanted to try that sounded "safe" for him, and then picked another two that I KNEW he would like that also sounded good to me. I was excited when he liked the one I chose for me (plantains, mozzarella, and guava... yum!)
After dinner we went for dessert at a place called Baily's Chocolate Bar where we had the most amazing brownie and homemade ice cream then followed it up with a trip to a wine bar to meet up with my roommate Audrey and another one of our friends. Needless to say... it was a lovely evening.

Oy, sorry for the long ramble... I guess I'm just super excited right now. Anywho- I have today off so I need to run so I can try and finish getting settled (I hate messes!) and get some stuff done I haven't had the opportunity to do in the last few days! Hope all is well!

xoxo

Hi Ladies!

Sorry I've been MIA this past week. It's been CRAZY. I had my interviews on Tuesday- got a job, started that evening- it was wretched. Quit the next day- applied for two more jobs- was called that evening and started waiting tables at this swanky pizza parlor called Katie's on Thursday morning. I trained for both shifts (lunch and dinner) that day, and worked a dinner shift on Friday. Yesterday I went to my first spinning class (my butt hurts like WHOA today) and a Turbo workshop. Yikes!

I have a second interview with the Princess situation on Thursday, my birthday is Friday (11/11), and assuming the Princess thing goes well on Thursday I'll be Sleeping Beauty for a party on Saturday morning.

So... in my "down time" I've been trying to get settled. So... as for the challenge... my goals will be:
1. Theatre "career" time at least 5 days/week
2. Floss once a day
3. Deviate from my TurboFire but keep the workout time, intensity, etc. on the same level. (Gotta force myself to try something new so I don't get burned out!)

Hope all is well! Happy Time change :)
