Hey Hey Hey Goooooodbye

Na na na-na. Na na na-na. Hey hey heeeey. Gooooood-byeeeee!

Today is my last day as a salaried employee of my company. I'm becoming hourly (working less hours) as of tomorrow, so that I can focus on my new consulting venture and my book. Yay! :)

This morning I hit the gym without any food in my tum-tum. I usually don't, but I was running late. Somehow I closed my eyes for "just 2 more minutes" and it turned into 20 - woopsie daisy!

When I got back from the gym (where I only had time for 35), I made a scrumptious breakfast: a spinach, egg and feta scramble on a whole wheat english muffin with some baby tomatoes on the side. I keep thinking I'll read the carton so I quit calling them baby tomatoes like a fool, but I never remember, so baby tomatoes it is.


This morning, I conned my hubby out of his last 3 bucks so I could take you guys up on your Starbucks advice. (Hey - there are just some things a girl's gotta do, right?). I picked up a grande soy latte (decaf) instead of my usual venti skinny vanilla latte. OMG I loved it. You guys were SO right. I think I have my new drink. Of course, the soy costs more, so I've only solved the health problem and not the money problem. One thing at a time.

Today is shaping up to be another busy day. I have work, then school, then a quick stop home to give the hubby a kiss and off to book club (I'm almost done with the book). Should be fun, and I'll be sure to take pictures of our dinner at Casa de Pico. The hubby just called and said he wouldn't be able to pick up our new dining table today like we planned (We've been waiting on it to come in FOREVER), but we get it Saturday. Yippy!!!

Well, I hope everyone is having a fantastic day. It's almost FRIDAY!!!!! WOOHOO!!!!

P.S. If you haven't already, be sure to check out last night's post Hubby in the Kitchen and give my man some props. He threw down, as he would say, and it was so much help to me! Thanks bebe!!!
