Hey There! 👋

I noticed someone else was using the name “A few things…” I thought it would just be better if I changed it. I actually kind of like this new name to be honest. It feels more personal. Agree?

Here we go!

Weekly Recap

Apple Watch
My girlfriend got me an Apple Watch for my birthday! I know right?! Like how fucking spoiled am I?!? After our festive birthday party full of tacos and cheesy queso, I was PUMPED to take my watch back up to our apartment and start setting it up. After a few failed attempts, we realized that the watch Morgan had bought from Amazon, was a refurbished one and the previous owners had forgot to turn off Find My Watch I suppose. She knowingly purchased it refurbished because honestly who the fuck is paying $700-$800 bucks for a new one? Not this family my friends. Amazon, of course, was speedy with sending us a new one, with no problem (and that’s why they are winning 😉). We got the new watch Sunday evening and after a 4 hour OS update, my Apple Watch came to life! I added my Dexcom G6 to my watch so that I can monitor my glucose without having to pick up my phone. Let me tell you… it’s a BLESSING y’all.

Birthday Dinner
LISTEN UP…This is not a plug and I’m not getting paid to say this I swear. But… If you ever find yourself in Charlotte you MUST make it a priority to eat dinner at Mama Ricotta’s. Mama’s literally breathes life into my body. It’s a homestyle Italian joint that offers a wide variety of dishes from pizza to pasta, to chicken parm. If you know me, you know I can’t pass up a good plate of chimikin. Peep their menu or message me if you ever want some food recommendations around Charlotte! PS: The Nutella Cheesecake is to DIE for…no literally…I’m diabetic, it could kill me.

hot date ;)
fucking yum

Outer Banks
We spent Thanksgiving with Morgans grandma. Fun fact: she lives at the outer banks! So early Thursday morning we packed up our life for a day and moved to the beach where we ate some GOOD food. Morgan’s grandma is an incredible cook and I always leave there feeling stuffed, over weight, and a total fat ass. Marley enjoyed the beach of course and we enjoyed our time spent with everyone down there!

ps: this is marley and morgan

Projects
I haven’t made much progress this week since it’s been a holiday. I’ve been back and forth on this whole Loop project idea. As far as work goes, everything has been going smooth. We’ve had a good selection of cars move around at Hemmings and as far as analytics go we are still seeing a consistent amount of traffic and a consistent amount of engagement from users!

Goals Next Week

  • Loop project, what’s next?
  • MORGAN, WE GOTTA WRAP CHRISTMAS GIFTS.
  • Marley’s got a vet appointment 😔
  • Refine the newsletter (y’all let me know how I’m doing please)
