tis the season

Hello Friday, you look fabulous.   It’s been, shall we say, a week.   Looking forward to our company holiday party this evening.   I’m excited to break out the little black sequin dress and shoes and have a nice night with manfriend.   Work will definitely be tricky, it’s going to be one of those days where I fight the temptation to turn on my mic and go:


I guarantee every dj has had to fight that urge before.   I really love my job, it’s just one of those days.  Honestly it doesn’t matter where we work or what we do, we all fight those temptations sometimes, don’t we?

It’s been holiday card mania at home.  I had mine to do, manfriend has to do them for his clients, there’s literally 10 boxes of cards in the living room, it’s a holiday paper mess.   But thankfully I’M DONE!   I need to get to the post office stat because I have a confession…

Every year I buy Christmas cards.  I write them.   I address them.  I stamp them, then I get sidetracked and forget to mail them.   Every.  Damn.  Year.   But not this one.  They’re going out today.   I’m also looking forward to being a part of a Holiday Card Swap that Krystal clued me into/co-organizes.   Post office here I come, ADD stay quiet.

extreme makeover: desk edition, part 2

Last spring I “made over” my cube space. I was tired of staring at red felt and gray metal so I girrrrrld it up a bit. I love it but as we head into winter I wanted to freshen up the spring look with something a bit subdued. Also my desk area was destroyed so I figured I’d clean and re-do


I wanted to use browns and turquoise this time so I broke into a scrapbooking paper boom (I use this for everything but scrapbooking)


I combined the brown scrapbook paper with sparkly blue paper and got to work. I needed the Hint water for motivation 🙂


I love how the combo ended up working out.


Even looks good with my crown lamp.

Now let’s see how long I can try to keep it neat.

fresh healthy and a fortune cookie

I had a quick appointment at my dentist (the greatest dentist ever Dr. Kendra Zappia) and was in the same area as one of my favorite spots, Fresh Healthy Cafe at Crossgates. LOVE this place, their name says it all. I ordered the Extreme Veggie Wrap and Mango Mania smoothie:


I drank most of the smoothie on the way back to my office (with an energy fortifier)


The extrmeme veggie wrap is amaze:


I make a little adjustment to my wrap, no feta, vinagrette or olives (I add in mozzarella) CHOMP:::CHOMP:::CHOMP!


Mmmmmm. So good ! I only get to eat at Fresh Healthy Cafe every few months so it’s a nice treat. Fresh Healthy Cafe is in Crossgates on the lower level just outside of Dick’s.

Hey, have you ever inherited office space ? At my office we have cubes, it’s a sea of cubes. I definitely make my space my own, but there are remnants from previous dwellers in the cube, like this fortune:


I don’t know who put it there but I’ll often look up and wonder if they taped it above the desk as inspiration or if they just found it funny. Ever find something from a previous office dweller ?
