This week we received our check in the mail from our first ever private money lender for our 2 new atm’s we are going to be placing.
Our fantabulous private money lender has sent us enough money from their Self-Directed IRA to pay for 2 ATM’s, 2 Wireless modem’s and cash to put into both machines. Sweet huh? So now you can treat your ATM biz just like you treat your real estate biz and use OPM (other people’s money) to get things moving!
I mean think about that huge win/win situation there. You get the money you need for your ATM’s or real estate deals and your private money lender gets to use their self-directed ira or cash to make a decent return on their moolah. Awesomeness!
So anyway, the money was deposited into our biz account and now we’re waiting for it to clear so we can pay for the machines (which have already been ordered) and the modems.
Now I’ve been promising Steph a picture of this fantastic Tomato Watermelon Basil salad so here it is Steph….
Now here’s the deal folks, if you want to make this salad you have to make me a promise. Ok? The promise is that when you eat it that when you put your fork into it that you take a bit of everything on the plate on your fork! So make sure you have some tomato, watermelon, basil, romaine and goat cheese on your fork and then eat it. In the words of Usher “OH MY GOD” lmao (I’m a dork) it really is amazing. It’s like a party in your mouth!
Here’s the recipe for it from Emeril Green: Tomato, Watermelon, Basil Salad.
Now a quick funny story…at least I think it’s funny lol it may have been one of those you have to be there things. Anyway, do you know that song “Billionaire” by Travie McCoy featuring Bruno Mars? Well I heart that song! And I’m always singing it and I ask Kathy one day if she likes that song and she has no idea what I’m talking about and kind of looks at me like I’m on crack. So we’re driving in the car and it comes on and I crank it up and I’m just singing away. Again, she’s looking at me, shaking her head like…you big dork.
Btw, I’m an R&B and hip hop kind of gal and Kathy….well not really, but she’s come a long way since meeting me….she even bought a 112 cd once (they are my favorite band for those who may be on jeopardy one day and Alex asks what my favorite band is!)
Anyway, that night we come home and we’re playing some poker online (for like a buck, nothing major lol we don’t play FOR REAL online) and I decide to youtube the “Billionaire” song and I keep playing it and singing it and Kathy’s just giving me dirty looks now because she’s tired of hearing the song and she wasn’t really into the song at all.
Now it’s time for bed and I’m in the bathroom brushing my teeth and Kathy comes walking in and she’s just humming away….and yep you guessed it she’s just getting into it humming the “Billionaire” song lmao it was hilarious. I look at her and say “Are you humming the Billionaire song?” And her eyes get all big and she’s like “NO.” I said “you’re totally humming the Billionaire song, I told you it was a good song.” Now her face is bright red and she’s like whatever and just walks away. It was the funniest thing.
Oh and on another music note….Andrew was in the back seat of my car one day last week and we’re driving and I ask him if he wants to listen to some good music (he’s 3 1/2.) And he says yes. I figure it’s my duty as his Auntie Carey Buck to expose him to real good music since both of his moms and well all of his family, well let’s just say doesn’t listen to the best music really (in my opinion of course lol)
So I play some Bobby Valentino for him and he wasn’t digging it at all. Then we went to R. Kelly again not digging it (but I really couldn’t play much of that song lol) Then we got to 50 cent and again, I couldn’t really play the song, and then I came to a Lil Kim song and really couldn’t play much of that and really every song I played I couldn’t play much and he wasn’t digging them anyway.
Then I played “The Reason” by Hoobastank and he really liked that one. He made me play it like 5 times in a row. And I was singing it for him so he could learn the words and he was watching my mouth intently then he says “Can you play that from the beginning again?” And I say “absolutely.” And he follows it up with “but don’t sing this time.” Lmao I started laughing out loud I asked “you don’t like my singing?” He said “no.” Gotta love kids and their honesty eh?
For those of you that don’t know the “Billionaire” song….here is the video. WARNING: This video from YouTube has bad language it is not the radio version.
