When I am not cheering for the best team in the NFL, I work as a Financial Advisor at one of the largest Wealth Management firms in the country. Since the stock market was closed for President's Day, I started off my week by sleeping in and enjoying a low key Monday. My one-year-old border collie, Dega, and I played in a field near my house for most of the day. Before heading to bed, I went to my parents' house for a home cooked meal. Early to bed for a busy week!
Every Tuesday I start my day with a meeting at 7:30am and another at 10:00am, so I was up at 5:30am this morning. After a quick lunch, I had another meeting at 1:00pm and then made phone calls until it was time to head home at 5:30pm. If this were a normal Tuesday during the season I would have gone straight to practice, but today I went for a run outside and then relaxed with Dega until going to bed again. Night!
Happy Wednesday! Today was a very busy day for me. I work on a team with 6 other advisors and we spent the day calling clients to update them on the market and economy and how it pertains to their individual financial needs. After work I drove downtown to take one of the other cheerleaders out for an early birthday dinner at P.F. Changs. (Happy early birthday, Lindsey F!!)
Thursday! (Getting close to the weekend!) Alarm woke me up from a deep sleep at 5:30am. A little tired from the day before, I dragged myself to work at 7:30am. (Very slow moving morning.) I worked on some follow up phone calls with clients and prospects from the day before until I had to leave for my end-of-the-year review with Theresa (our lovely Cheerleading Coordinator)! It was a nice break in my day to get to chat with her for an hour. I went back to the office to complete paperwork and check emails before calling it a day. It was a nice outside, so I went for a long run before dinner. After having dinner with my family again, I played with Dega before crashing into my bed.
TGIF! I could not believe how tired I was this morning. Instead of getting up at my normal time, I decided to sleep in until 6:45am and got to the office at 8:00am. My 11:30am meeting rescheduled so I made a few client phone calls, but mostly worked on increasing my prospect list. I am hoping to make partner of my team by 2013 and have to hit quarterly goals in order to be promoted. So far, so good, but no time to slack off! I felt really good about my hard work this week, so left the office a little early to enjoy the weekend. A girlfriend and I went to dinner to start the weekend, but I was still tired from the week so went home and got into bed fairly early on a Friday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY LINDSEY F!!!!
Saturdays are my favorite day of the week! I slept in until after 10:00am and felt AMAZING! One of my best friends, Shauna, is getting married this summer and we met for lunch so I could get ideas on planning a Couple's Shower for her and her future hubby, Will. (For those who don't know what a Couple's Shower is… Instead of a regular bridal shower, you invite friends of the bride and groom and play fun games that both sides will enjoy before heading out for a night out on the town. It's a great way for the bride and groom to have a fun night out together to celebrate their upcoming wedding!) I had a few errands to run after lunch because I am moving into my new house in March and want to have it ready for when three of the other cheerleaders move in with me! Even though I had a great night sleep, I took a nap before meeting another friend for dinner. Jill and I went to high school together and love catching up over sushi. My high school friends are still very close, so after dinner we all got together for a fun night out. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BEAUTIFUL SISTER, CHRISSY!!! SHE TURNED 20 TODAY!!!!!!!
Sundays are usually VERY lazy, but my little sister, Chrissy, came home to celebrate her 20th birthday with the family. I have three gorgeous younger sisters. (Elaine, 23, Chrissy, 20, and Emmie, 17.) My mom, Cathy, and dad, Tom, are amazing parents for raising four daughters. Most people feel bad for my dad not having a boy in the family, but the five of us women take good care of him! I am very blessed to have such an amazing family. We spent the day together for Chrissy's birthday. After a home cooked dinner and presents, Elaine and Chrissy went back to Bloomington.
Hope you enjoyed a sneak peak into my life as a Colt's Cheerleader!! Looking forward to a fabulous season ahead! GO COLTS!!!!
