Happy Hour(s)

October 24, 2008 at 2:00 pm 10 comments


Today during lunch was my training for the Big Brothers Big Sistersworkplace mentoring program that I was chosen to participate in.  I’m seriously soo happy I got picked – I can’t wait to meet my little next week!

All of the littles are 10th graders at a public high school in New York City, so for a good portion of the training we were asked to think back to highschool and all of the problems & issues we faced – and then what new issues may have arisen today.  I have to say it was really such an eye opening exercise.  It wasn’t that long ago that I was in high school, but I grew up in the suburbs, so I never had the temptations or dangers that growing up in a city presents. 

Lunch today was a salad I made yesterday with hard-boiled egg, carrots, bell peppers and dijon mustard.  Oh my goodness was it delicious!!  I also had 2 small gala apples – seriously they’re so tiny!!  I’m used to my massive honey crisps, although they are quite adorable 🙂  

Anyway, hope everyone’s having a wonderful Friday!!  I got an email from my boss a few days ago about a staff meeting I have today from 3-5pm.  At first I was grumbling (2 hour meeting?!), but then I noticed the location of the meeting was a local pubby my office!  Yay for fun Fridays!!!  😀  Now that’s what I call Happy Hour(s)!!


I just tried my ZAP energy bar in the Cola Flavor… I’m sorry but it was disgusting!  It was like an old Coca-Cola with no carbonation and a little peanut flavor hardened into bar form.  Yuck!  I wish I could put this in a nice way, but I literlly spit it out after taking a bite – and I hate wasting food.  But hey, I just don’t like Coke or Pepsi, so maybe it’s just me??  Maybe not though…

    Mmm, your salad looks delicious. You should try slicing up some apples and adding them to salads too; it’s really yummy!

    That’s great that you’re being a part of Big Brothers Big Sisters- I’m sure it’ll be a great learning experience:)

    Sagan: Oooh what a good idea, especially since I have a huge bag of apples at home! You may see that in the near future…

    Hey girl sorry about the late reply about Zap. I like the actually pb, the bars are not my favorite either. I really only eat the pb in my oatmeal so it’s not too bad. Love your blog by the way:)

    Bobbi ZAP pb in oatmeal is definitely how I decided it tastes best too. Thanks! 🙂

    runjess No problem – it’s hard to be honest in reviews sometimes when it really tastes gross, but I felt it was only fair that I said when I felt.
