The Longest Day and a Giveaway!

21 Jun

Happy Longest Day of the Year! I got schooled on the summer solstice today, click here for some fun information and facts! My fondest memory of this day was back in college. It’s one of my best friends birthdays today and we went out for her 21st birthday. Your truly got completely wrecked and she ended up being DD on her own birthday while I decided to get rid of the liquor consumed that night via mouth with the window rolled down on the way home. She drove to the gas station right after that and was hosing off the car……at 2A….on her birthday (not my greatest moment in friend history) and whole doing so I was laughing, pointing at different “spots” she missed and letting her know so. She’s forgiven me but doesn’t let me forget about this night.

And did you know this Friday is Take Your Dog To Work Day? I think if people are allowed to take their kids to work, dog owners like me should be able to their dogs to work on this day. I am sure my company wouldn’t be too keen on the idea but Lincoln would absolutely love it. I could even put up one of those baby gates at my desk and let Lincoln ply in my space. If not, he is very lovable, he would probably go up to people in their cubes and sit in their laps. He would spread joy to everyone!

Speaking of……one of my co-workers came in today with his baby. Edit….his sick baby. I was petting the baby (b/c I don’t know how to interact with them so I pet them like a dog) and he was like “Yeah, I brought him in because he’s running a fever”. Naturally, I jumped back and reached for the sanitizer but doesn’t anyone see something  wrong with this picture? He was only there for an hour but bringing your sick baby into work? Not cool at all. When I get sick, I get really sick. I surpass over a cold, I get bronchitis or a sinus infection and I don’t get a stomach bug, I get a full on flu. Plus with me going to NYC next wk (I can’t believe it’s almost here!!!), the last thing I need is getting sick. So here’s to sanitizing my hands every hour and filling up on my vitamins. On a happier note, I rocked my cute dress I bought a few months ago. This was my first time wearing it and it was so comfy. I think I looked pretty cute as well, everyone kept asking me if I had an interview and what the special occasion was though. But I looked like a lady….oh how looks can be deceiving.


I’m going to pair up with my red heels next time I wear it. I hate being on a limited closet right now with all my stuff, packed and ready to go!

Blueberry was yet again the theme for my breakfast—I had Chobani Blueberry Greek Yogurt with Kashi Go Lean Crunch and a grande Pike from Starbucks.

I had a big salad for lunch with baby spinach, tomatoes, cucumbers, red onions and turkey topped with T Marzetti’s Light Ancho Chipotle Ranch with half a packet of Sea Salt Somersaults



Did anyone watch True Blood last night? I have been catching mine online since my cable company finally caught onto the fact I was getting the HBO for free and desperately miss True Blood and Entourage. I am hoping to watch it tonight or sometime this week so I can catch up on its juiciness! I read five of the Charlaine Harris books (which the series is based on of and I highly recommend and was always Team Bill but after seeing the show I’ve converted—Team Eric all the way. Rawr.

For dinner, I made Chicken Fried Rice.

I am not a fan of frozen veggies at all but I am trying to clean out my freezer and used half a bag of stir fry vegetables
