Bring Your Niece To Work Day….

Good morning everyone! TGIF (sorta kinda lol) I am so happy that this week is coming to an end and even happier that the year is finishing up. I don’t know about you guys but I buy into the whole new year, fresh start, new beginning mumbo jumbo lol. I love wiping the slate clean and starting all over again.

I have to sit down this weekend and right down my 2010 GOALS not my resolutions (thanks for the tip Gina). I know that the number one thing on that list will be to run a 5K! fo shizzle my nizzle! Can I pull that off? Not so much hahahaha


Ayer for lunch I had 1/2 a cup of Brown Rice with 1 cup of Spanish style Roman Beans with Onions and Peppers and a side of Apple and Cranberry Sauce

After work I rushed home to shower and get dressed to meet my sister and then to meet Joanne at the INFAMOUS Katz's for some sammies =). I seriously love this place…I can’t believe that Joanne AND my sister have never been there! Fake NY’ers lol . Katz’s has been in many movies including the Orgasm Scene (hehe) in When Harry Met Sally

I ordered the Pastrami on Rye with a side of Pickles….HELLO LOVA! I think Sally had a foodgasm instead ha

This sandwich was definitely worth the FREEZING COLD walk from the train station to the Deli lol. After we talked and TALKED at the restaurant, we decided to talk some more but at a new place…we walked over to a small Bakery/Restaurant called “Sugars”. I ordered a Cupcake with Hot Cocoa yuuuums.

The food was incredible in both location but the conversation and fabulous company definitely made my night. Thanks for a great night, chicas!


This morning I slept in and woke up around 8 am lol…life is good =). I went to pick up my niece so that she could spend the day with me at work since I am the only one here.

Sidenote: why did my boss just call me and ask why am I here? BECAUSE YOU NEVER SAID THAT I COULD STAY HOME! loser lol

Ayer when I was leaving work, I bumped into the Fed Ex guy who had  a package for me….THE PRIZE I WON on Mo's page! woooohoooo. I got two Progresso Bowls with two spoons (one for work and one for home) and a can of Minestrone Soup!

I can not wait to try the soup! thank you Mo and Progresso!

For Breakfast I just had Chobani Blueberry Yogurt with Peanut Butter & Co White Wonderful Chocolate and my last cookie from April (Sad Panda) in my fabulous new Bowl! April, did your mom like it with the yogurt too? I heat it up in the microwave for about 30 seconds and then mix it all together
