March 7, 2010 - Happy Anniversary Jenny:)

Hey there, hi there and hello there to one and all on this beautiful Sunday eve. I hate to brag to the folks back in Iowa about weather, but this weekend was just absolutely beautiful in the low 60's with berry nice sunshine! What a perfect way to celebrate mine and Jenny's two year anniversary (first picture together pictured here with the tuxedo t-shirt ... she was hooked from there) ... be honest, how many people put money on that two years ago:)? Pretty amazing how time flies when you're having fun!
Time at Aflac this past week was majestic if I had to pick a word. Amidst all of the excess reporting and hoops, our team continues to git ir done and this past week seemed like our most productive in a long time. I don't know what it was, but the movement on all of our projects seemed to be taking quantum leaps and everybody was holding themselves accountable to get better. Could be that I'm going over mid-year appraisals this week, but I really think that we're just gellin' like magellen:)
This week up at Emory we had a break from our core courses for a crash course in Professional Communication. This professor is the epitome of what I want to be when I grow up, an MBA business leadership/communications professor ... couldn't paint a prettier picture if I tried. So, I asked if I could sit and chat to learn a bit more about his past. That was Monday ... then Wednesday came around and I had the opportunity to chat with Professor Smith for about a half an hour to gather some tidbits of info as I push forward to the end of the degree and beyond. I also found out that this summer I will be taking Strategy and Finance followed up by an August ACE course in Entrepreneurship and ending the year with Negotiations and potentially Marketing Seminar. Should be a fun filled time at Emory over the next few months, especially with study abroad in China squeezed in there during the beginning of May:)
This weekend was great for some chillaxin time with Caden, Jenny and friends plus 60 degree weather. Yes, that is Jenny's anniversary gift ... a bike, a little unorthodox I know, but I think she likes it! We went for a couple rides this weekend with friends for a total of about 30 miles in addition to some rollerblading action. Friday night we also bid farewell to our pal Dave Rodriguez where Jenny and I rocked some old school t-shirts for some laughs. Saturday was also filled with good times as we made our way to the Springer Opera House for the show Oklahoma. The first act started a bit slow, but the second act more than picked up for the performance ... great local talent indeed!
I just heard my bro and his team won the state tourney, congrats man ... that is awesome and wish I could've been there to cheer on your fouls:) Welp, I hope everyone continues to have a good lenten season ... yes, I am holding strong to no fast food and soda-pop, although the Sprite and JBC with choco frosty at Wendy's was looking good the other day:)
Have a great week.
