Day 91 – March 10, 2011

Last night, Dusty was scratching at my door, so I opened it and the cats ran in. They both jumped on my bed, and Eddie wanted me to pet him. This morning, my alarm went off and I turned on the radio. Eddie came running over and wanted me to pet him. I pet him for a while and he fell asleep on me. Since I hadn’t been up yet, I really had to go to the bathroom, but someone wouldn’t get up…

I went into the office but I didn’t prep my lunch to bring in.. it’s ok because I had some Chi’lantro BBQ!

Tried the burger this time.. not as good as the tacos

As I left the building, I saw the pretty purple flowers.. even more signs of spring 😀

Purdy flowers

Oy.. I really need to figure out how to post photos so they’re not so desaturated 😦 It wasn’t as bad on Flickr I don’t think.. I’ll have to play around.

The rest of the day was pretty uneventful… could’ve used a margarita so I’m gonna have one tomorrow instead 😀

Day 39 – January 17, 2011

Today was one busy day for a day off!

I went to WW first thing in the morning, then I went grocery shopping at a different H-E-B that I hadn’t been to yet.

I thought about buying some butternut squash, but I decided against it since I haven't tried cooking the acorn squash yet

I saw some tortillas being made! Hadn’t seen that at a HEB before!

Made me crave warm tortillas.. *drool*

I didn’t buy any of those nice warm tortillas.. instead I bought some low-carb whole wheat ones.

I knew I had my 1:1 on Tuesday morning, so I figured I should download the videos before my boss asked…

Anticipating Tuesday's 1:1

After days of rain and cloudy weather, the sun came out! I was so stoked.. it was so warm. I let Dusty go out on the balcony and enjoy the sunshine.

Clear skies

I made dinner and lunch for tomorrow, watched more Psych, then I went to bed…

Day 34 – January 12, 2011

This morning, I had a very hard time getting up — I had less than 6 hours of sleep after getting everything ready. My boss told me to order room service and we should meet at 7:30.

I ordered a smoked salmon bagel, strawberries, and orange juice.

This is what a $40 breakfast looks like!

We went to the gym and we got there around 8:30am. We started to take out the equipment and I took photos while my boss videotaped details of the gym.

You can see my boss's reflection in the mirror

Another shot of the gym

Behind the speed bag was the big ring

Once we had everything we needed, we waited for the VPs to arrive. We were going to film them as they drove up.

Ready for action!

Once we got the shots outside, we went inside to explain to the VPs what they were required to do. The gym’s owner’s dog wanted to be apart of the video too!

Johnny Cash 😀

After we were done filming, we went back to the hotel and tried downloading the videos. I was missing some cables and a hard drive.  We went downstairs to try to help MB (VP’s admin) with name tags as today was the official check-in date for the reps. There was another conference around the corner and people kept stopping at our table with name tags, so we had to keep pointing them in the right direction. My boss & MB got sick of it so they made a sign with the company’s name.

Hitchin' a ride!

I had to get a pic of it because it was so ghetto lol.. A hotel employee came to set up a proper sign with a frame so people would know this was not their table. They still stopped at our table…

My boss and I went to the office to pick up the hard drive but I was still missing cables… We called the front desk and they transferred me to the IT department and they brought me one cable but it wasn’t the right one. We decided to leave it and maybe come back to my apartment to get the cables after dinner.

The attendees were divided by Lines of Business for dinner and we were given the option of whose team to join. We joined the group that had some people from operations including my boss’s old boss. We went to the Belmont and I had the rib eye. It wasn’t that great — the apps were much better. I had a pounding headache all evening, but we went out for drinks with the rest of the group anyway. We were only there for a little bit as my boss didn’t feel like being social either, and we had plans to drive out to Ft. Hood at 6:30am the next day.

Tomorrow’s when we get to have fun!

Day 33 – January 11, 2011

Today was a crazy day — I had to do stuff for work, go to the office, pack, and send you a package. I put all the packaged baked goods in a Lululemon bag and was ready to go to the post office and someone got in the way…

I keep telling you he misses his daddy... he wanted to be shipped along with the baked goods!

While I was working, the VP’s admin (MB) asked me to come to the hotel early.. she wanted me to accompany her to a couple of places. My boss got in just in time and he joined us. Our first stop was Stubb’s; MB wanted to select the menu and check out the space.

The outside of Stubb's - also shot by my boss

After that, we went to Kenishi to select that menu as well. After we dropped MB off at the hotel, my boss and I went to the boxing gym. He wanted to talk to the owner and finalize details. We also went for dinner at the restaurant across the street from the hotel.

Fish tacos w/ranchero beans and rice

After dinner, we got down to work… planned all the scenes that needed to be shot and thought of some ideas for the video.

This was the workstation in my room

We laid out the equipment on my bed & were testing out the lights

Once we were satisfied with everything, we packed up and called it a night.

Day 23 – January 1st, 2011

Today, I slept a lot… I’m getting too old for staying up all night! It always results in me sleeping all day the next day. I went grocery shopping, then I got ready to go to AB’s for a Just Dance / Wii party.

I haven’t figured out where I’m going to upload the videos just yet.. they take forever to upload!! I’m uploading one to vimeo right now. I’m about half way done. So here are some photos. The videos came out a little dark and I tried to edit them using iMovie, but I didn’t like the results. Maybe I need training 😀

Roxy did not comprehend what was going on!

T & A .. not sure what they were dancing to

W & A ... don't know what this one is either but it was a duet fo sho!

P & M - I know this one "Viva Las Vegas" - the first song I danced to

Original –

Me & A dancing the Charleston – password justdance

After MB & G left, AG, PL, TG & I played Wii Bowling… Your gf dominated the game! Too bad I couldn’t get more strikes

If only I could bowl this well in real life!!

Great way to start off the new year 😀
