Stuff as of late

Happy November everyone!  It's been a while again I know, I just haven't felt inspired to write I guess.
Well, a quick update on me, I'm loving my new job!  I haven't made the official announcement yet, but I'm now a National Account Manager for Prodigy Promos.  It's a company that provides promotional or branded items for companies that help advertise their brand.  And, I get to work with my old friends at Nu Skin, as they are one of my accounts now!  So yeah, it's been pretty cool so far.  I love the casual environment (read: jeans everyday!), my flexible schedule, the nice and inspiring people I work with, and the potential to earn.  I really don't know how I got so lucky.

It was actually funny how it happened.  I worked with Prodigy in my role at Nu Skin and somehow forgot to let them know I wasn't there anymore.  So, a few days after my last post they called and asked what was up, then asked if I wanted to have lunch and talk.  I said yes, thinking they were just having pity on me, and I also thought, well, if nothing else I can give these guys a few pointers on how to work with Nu Skin and  hopefully have more success with them.  Well, about half-way through the lunch they asked me about possibly working with them, getting all the MLM accounts, and all the support I needed.  I started to get really excited and even though it's not something I ever thought I would do or even plan on, it just seemed like such a great opportunity.  And so far, I'm right!

Doing pretty good on my weight loss too, and sticking to the vegetarian diet pretty well.  I've lost 10 pounds so far, woo hoo!  I can directly attribute this to eating better, and working out 6 days a week.  I've been switching it up a lot to keep things interesting- running, biking, elliptical, aerobics, stairs, weights, and dance.  It's been fun and I'm feeling good about all the effort I've put in.

On another note, here's a few fun photos of events in the last little while...

My cute niece Amanda married Colin Crane a few weeks ago, this is a shot I took.


This is their sweet "zombie" cake that my Sister in Law, Mary made for them.


This is the Princess and the Dragon


This is the coolest pumpkin I've ever carved, I just wish they lasted longer, it was already smooshed in by Halloween!

Lastly, this is cutie-pie Eli as Dra-q-lah- (how he says it).

Love to all, and this November, take some time to really think about what you're thankful for!
