I’m a the #AppleFanGirl4Life. Apple can do no wrong in my book. In the 4 years since I’ve switched from a pc to a Mac, I’ve never gotten a virus, and the only time my laptop has crashed was when I was in Barnes and Nobles, and I accidentally spilled hot green tea on it 😦 I’m the proud owner of the iPhone 4, iPad, and Macbook Air. They are the air that I breath, and the wind beneath my wings. So… imagine my horror, when Dr. B (a supposed Apple devotee) decided to switch to the Samsung Galaxy S when it was time to upgrade his phone. My first thought was, “who is this man I married?…I don’t recognize him anymore.” Mr. Steve Jobs, I apologize if my husband has offended you, he knows not what he does.
I ordered a white iPhone 4S on Sunday!!!! I cannot wait to get my hands on this phone. The first thing I’ll ask Siri is, “is this my husband, or has he been replaced with an Android powered alien?” Only Siri can help me now. I feel sorry for Dr. B, he actually likes his
big ole phone Samsung. Oh well, just wait until he hears me and Siri chatting it up…someone’s gonna be jealous… 🙂
Who has the ‘better’ phone in your house?
We are actually home! I got this morning went for a bike ride and run while Dr. B took his car into the shop. After my workout I took a swim, followed by a soak in the jacuzzi (my legs were killing me). We actually turned down an invitation to go to the beach (I think were getting old)… Right now Dr. B is catching up on some work, while blog surf and shop online and watch football 🙂 It feels good to sit my butt home a relax. What are you up to today?
Dr. B has penned an enlightening look at the effects of visionary leadership on team performance, check it out here!

Apparently, my husband has it in his head that I’m a fantasy football prodigy 0_0. He joined the fantasy football league at his office, and bragged to everyone that we’re the team to beat. I don’t know where he got the idea that I’m some type of football savant. Granted I know alot about college football, but the NFL…not THAT much. He is so confident in my skills that he volunteered to have the draft at our house. Now, everyone is supposedly gunning for me, as if I’m the person to beat. No. I’m. Not. Any of you ladies play fantasy football, do you have some tips to help me out?
For the last three days Dr. B has been working from home. He is spearheading a project, and four of his employees are working on it with him. This is the first project of its kind that his company has undertaken, and he and his team decided to work on it out of the office. So….They have been at our house working out of our living room. Don’t get me wrong, I’m very excited. This project is very significant. But….5 men, 8 hours a day, for 3 days 😦 I did my wifey duties and had bagels, fruit, and coffee ready for them every morning. The last two days I have been up in the office “hard” at work on my assignments for class. But today, I decided I needed to get away from all the testosterone, so I went to the mall 🙂 Where else can you go where there is more estrogen than testosterone. LOL!
My trip wasn’t in vain. I found the most bad arse belt on sale at Anthropologie ( love that store). AND, the best part of my “mini-hiatus” was finding my birthday present thanks to Roger in Bloomingdales. (Yes, I’m one of those women that gives their husbands a wish list). It’s David Yurman enhance, with a carved cable design. I tried it on and it looked beautiful with the necklace Dr. B brought me for Xmas. When I returned from the mall Dr. B and his team were still working away. When I walked in the door Dr. B asked me, “did you find something you liked?” LOL! That’s my husband, he knows me well.
So what think, ya or nay to giving your husband a wish list, and when it comes to buying you presents, does your husband get it right?
The Anthropolgie belt. Not the best picture, especially on top of my "Beverly Hills Babe" t-shirt. 🙂
I took a week off from blogging so I could focus on my coursework. While I have been on my blogging
Screenshot of our 2011 goal spreadsheet
sabbatical a few notable things have occurred. The biggest being, Dr. B and I sat down and planned out 2011. We Built a spreadsheet which displays every month of the year across the top, and down the side we have major areas in our life: health/fitness, financial, travel/leisure, career/education, relationship. For each month we set goals that we wanted to achieve as they pertain to each area. For instance a health/fitness goal for me is to go to our family doctor and have a physical exam and blood work. Not that I have been sick lately, but, it’s important for women to have regular physical exams besides the yearly obgyn visit.
It took us about two hours to complete the spreadsheet and talk through some of our goals. We planned out every trip were going to take, such as the one next month for my birthday, were going skiing in Utah 🙂 The biggest thing for me wasn’t the end result, but the process of talking through what we wanted to accomplish as a couple and as individuals, being open, willing, and unafraid to voice our concerns, feeling, and opinions of the ideas that the other shared.
Have you and your SO done anything like setting goals and planning out the year together, what did you use to record those goals? Do you have any tips or tricks to share?
Here is a link to the spreadsheet we created.
