Confessions of a Brunette on the Internet 166

Friday night, I started Megan on a Harry Potter Journey. She has never read any of the books or seen any of the movies. Can you believe that? Ya... me neither. This is why I told her before she moved out, she had to watch all of the Harry Potters. We are on the 5th one now as I type. Just to report... she is loving them. Not sure if we could be friends if she didn't. ;)

Sunday, my niece, Reanne, made me my very own magazine. She drew a picture of me on the top and then wrote an article on page two the rest was a bunch of pictures she took of me right then with my mom's ipad. She is so funny... and clever and thoughtful. I gave her a hug and thanked her for my fashionista magazine and she told me I needed to show all of my friends. I must say... between Reanne and Sierra... I have lots of cute stuff they have made me to show my friends. :) I love it.

Monday I started a new diet. I am yet again on a new diet journey... but I am hoping this time will end my yo yo dieting life. I am doing medifast. Supposed to be pretty full proof. All the meals are there for you. Anyway.... today is day 4. First couple days I was SUPER hungry, but yesterday and today I have been fine and even exercised and felt fine.... so I think this is going to work for me. I hope so. I mean... I hate grocery shopping and I like things that I can grab on the go... so this is that. Plus, I have a health coach that checks up on me all the time. I will let you know how it goes.

Wednesday Jeannie (my favorite pilates instructor) came back. It was such a good work out. I miss doing pilates... but I hate every other class I have gone to besides hers. She just has a gift. I just wish I could have her back for good. I would be in better shape and I would have a strong core again. For now... I'm super sore.

Today there were a bunch of lay off's at work. Thankfully our department wasn't involved, but there is always a sad atmosphere when that happens. We also found out in our meeting this morning that we are probably not going to get a bonus this year. Our last quarter end, we were mostly terminating contracts. Yeah... I wonder how long the company is going to last. Sad, but true.

So I have joined this new dating app. I know... another form of online dating. Turns out this dating app is SUPER popular. I have seen tons of people on there that I know. It is called Tinder, and you log in through your facebook. It pulls guys in your area that also have Tinder and you just see their picture. If you think they are cute you say yes, and if you don't you say no. If you say no, they don't know... if you say yes and they also said yes to you... then it tells you it's a match and then you are able to chat with them if you want. Currently I have 80 matches since I joined a couple of weeks ago. It has done more for me than LDS singles has. Lots of guys wanting to take me out. LDS singles is getting canceled. Anywho, I have been talking to several guys, but I went on my first Tinder date last night. We just went to the BYU Art Museum and talked. He was fun. The best part though was when my blog got brought up. I told him I liked blogging and I told him that my dream job would be to get paid to travel and blog about it. He told me I could. He makes a living off of marketing from blogs. He told me I should go for my dream job and he would help me do it if I want. I may just be doing that. I have some great ideas for it and I really want to go for it now. What is there to lose? If it was popular, I could make some great money. With how my work is going.... I may need to find another income. I'm excited about it.... I will let you know how it goes.

Sounds like it was a fun date. But you didn't say ANYTHING about the guy!! And by the way, did you see the story in the news about Tinder in Provo a few days ago? :)

I'm glad you like all the stuff my kids give you. They sure love you a lot.

Indeed I am loving the Harry Potter journey. I'm still pretty upset about Dumbledore. Can't wait to finish the rest! And I can't wait to set up our Saturday crafting sesh. <3
