All I Want For Christmas

Posted Dec 08 2010 3:57pm

Mid-morning, I drove to NuVal for the annual “state of the union” meeting, which happen to have a little holiday flair thrown into the mix.

If you’re wondering, I still work for NuVal . I just do the majority of my work from home. I blog Monday through Friday at Trading Up Downtown and manage NuVal’s Twitter accounts (@NuVal & @TinaTradesUp), so my boss lets me work from home.

I actually prefer to work from home, but I definitely miss my coworkers. It was nice to see everyone today and catch up. I might have to visit the office a little more often!

When I arrived at NuVal, everyone gathered in the conference room to hear the head of the company give a presentation, which summarized NuVal’s successes over the past year as well its goals for the coming years.

Since this time last year, NuVal has expanded from 3 retailers to 14 retailers!!  NuVal is on the move, baby! (FYI: There are only 11 retailers listed on the NuVal website, but there are more to come!)

After the presentation, we enjoyed lunch from the The Chateau in Braintree. Holy yum! Good pick by our Office Manager!

I loaded up my plate with mostly veggies (raw, marinated & roasted), a little bit of meat (Italian sausage & meatballs), and a piece of buttery garlic bread.

As always, I left plenty of room for dessert! ;-)

We also received Christmas presents at the meeting. In Boston, ya can’t go wrong with Dunkin’ Donuts gift cards! :-D

Once the lunch ended, I headed home to find a special package on my front porch: Mama Pea’s Holiday Dough Balls . Yes, you read that correctly. I have the authentic Dough Balls in my possession.

This is truly all I wanted for Christmas. For real. My in-laws recently asked me for a Christmas list, and I could not come up with a single thing that I wanted. Ok, well, I wanted Dough Balls and cold hard cash, but nothing else. I eventually came up with a hand blender that I saw on Ellen! ;-)

My sleep schedule has been so messed up lately. I finally made the connection between sleep and what I chose to eat: Why a Lack of Sleep Is Ruining My Diet.

What’s on your Christmas list this year?
