Wine, We Aren’t Lacking

Good evening 🙂

Today has really felt like my first productive day in a very long time. I got a big chunk of my inbox cleared, wrote my new Health.com post, wrote my latest True/Slant post on staying healthy while traveling (I need my own advice!), and even got time to lay in the sunshine and read my bible. 🙂 Life is good.

I snacked on this bar around 3:00 this afternoon while working….


And then got served a glass of wine while on a call from work outside. Living with boys ain’t half bad and wine is one thing they AREN’T lacking…. 😉





Neither is turkey for snacks. Apparently.


Dinner was leftover enchiladas, obviously!


First day of work tomorrow!! I work 10:30 to 4:00 and am really excited to just get in there and learn everything I can. It definitely should be an interesting day!

Here’s a little teaser for you: guess who’s going to NYC on Sunday afternoon? ME! I have a top secret meeting on Monday morning in the City and I’m super stoked about it……that’s all for now! Don’t you just hate me right now??! 😉 muhahahaha

    That turkey looks incredible! Between the turkey and the wine, I’d be asleep in about two minutes.

    Have fun in NYC and good luck on your super secret project!

    I have a guess! I think you are auditioning for Food TV’s “The Next Food Network Star.” Am I right? If I am right, there’s no way you can answer based on confideniality. As a strange side note, my podiatrist is auditioning too. He made it to the top 30 for last season, but he was beat out by Jeffery.

    While I’m at it, I have questions. What happened to the social networking gig for Cambria? How did this gig come to be? Did you get the apartment?

    Good luck with whatever it is that you’re doing!!

  • Lizzie
    September 30, 2009 at 6:03 am

    I still can’t get used to your West Coast posts – timing has me all off! 🙂 So going to relish your NYC ones while you’re there. I am going to guess since it’s a ‘top secret’ meeting, that it’s something related to your new job . . . OR you have some incredibly cool bosses who are going to let you do what Nadine guess! 🙂

    I find it so funny that the boys you are staying with have such a stocked pantry and have so much wine! Maybe it’s cuz I am still in college with 20 year old boys, but they just drink beer, and keystone at that! Plus they never have any food, they depend on raiding our (the girls) kitchens for the late night food supplies, lol. You are one lucky girl!
