hump day is happenin'...

I didn't go WWTGs this morning. Two girls couldn't make it because of commitments they had early in the morning and the other wasn't feeling well. I went ahead and exercised anyway. Just did it in doors. Aerobics.

Still was able to burn 400 calories.

I had a great day today. Me and three others from the office went to a convention this morning. I drove down with one girl who I've been wanting to get to know better. I don't know if that happened, though, because I kept blabbering on about stuff the whole drive. I hate when I do that. It's like I have no control over my mouth. I just keeps going and going until I've said way too much. But I enjoyed the drive, anyway. Then we met the other two down there and walked around for a few hours chit-chatting and oohing and awing over the displays. There were some really cool displays and booth arrangements. Great product displays, too. I had a blast.

Then we got back and our boss (one of the 4 of us) had to get back to work to do something for the big boss, so we dropped her off and the three of us went to lunch. I'd never been to lunch just the three of us before and it was so nice. I've got to do that more often.

I got to know the two of them a little better and I really enjoyed it.

I shot hubby a love-text-note on the way back to the office and he shot one back to me saying he wanted to take me out to a romantic dinner. So we did. I had a WONDERFUL night with him.

Alas, here I sit blogging and he's at the computer next to me working, but we had a great time and great conversation anyway.

I did go over my points today, but not by much. And they're flex points anyway.

I will WWTGs tomorrow morning. We've all 4 said we're walking. Then on Friday, I'm biking again. I was thinking about going over the Interstate again. Was a beautiful ride last time we did it. I'm thoroughly enjoying biking. I hope my enthusiasm lasts.

Oh, I gotta tell you the coolest thing. I got to meet one of my favorite singing artists in person day before yesterday. I was walking down to the break room at work and I passed by this guy in the hallway and said hi. As soon as I did, I turned around and said (to myself) HEY, I KNOW THAT GUY. It was Brandon Heath. He's fairly new to the music buz and I had downloaded two of his songs from iTunes this past year. Anyway, I followed behind him to the front desk ready to pounce on him for an autograph but he got caught up in a conversation and I didn't want to interrupt. So I go to hubby (who also works where I do) and asked him if he knew what Brandon was doing in the building and it turns out that hubby was getting ready to video tape an interview with Brandon and one of the editors. I said NO WAY!!! YOU GOTTA GET ME IN THERE!!! So he did. (my hero) I got to sit in on the interview, as a fan, not an employee. And after it was done, he asked me if I would like a copy of his newest CD (which hasn't even released yet) and then, get this, he asked me if he could sing me a song. OMG!!! He actually sang a song JUST FOR ME!!! Can you believe it??? I was such a goober fan! I loved every second of it. I got his autograph and was on cloud nine for the rest of the day.

And to think, he was just walking down the hall like any other person in the world and he passed right by me at that exact moment.

Was so awesome!!!

Ooh, you mean the Brandon Heath who sings "Our God Reigns"?? or someone else. I'm so jealous!!

That's so cute that you and hubby do your own thing on your own computers next to each other. My hubby is playing one of his computer games next to me while I browse blogs on my laptop. =)
