First and foremost my friends and family (they are indeed readers!), I need to give YOU all a big THANK YOU! All your congratulations on the new job and support for the blog have been nothing short of AMAZING and have helped quell all the moving nerves - so muchas gracias!
B’fast was totes a repeat of yesterday…
Zoe' s Cinnamon Raisin Granola + skim milk + banana
However, unlike yesterday, I got to work early today. I chalk that up to my 9:30pm bedtime .
When I got to work, I saw this beast hangin’ out in the parking lot…
rollin' with the platelets...
WELCOME TO THE 2009 COMPANY BLOOD DRIVE!
Our accounting firm hosted a blood drive this morning in conjunction with the Memorial Blood Centers of Minnesota to round up a bunch of accountants’ blood along with my lowly administrative assistant blood! Honestly, and in all seriousness, I have been donating blood since high school, and it is so important!
( Warning: Public service announcement ahead)
One pint of blood can save up to 3 lives, which is crucial when 1 in 7 people entering the hospital need blood. It really takes no time at all (about 1/2 hour from registration to blood donating for moi today) and really SAVES LIVES. Plus, you get free snacks at the end. It’s a win-win on both ends.
i don' t know why my neck looks creepy like that. however, i have O- blood, so even if my neck looks funky, people still want blood from the universal donor blood type (that' s me!).

Click here to find out where YOU can donate in your area. Every TWO seconds someone (yep, two seconds right there!) needs blood in the U.S., yet only 5% of Americans donate (another two seconds). Need more motivation to give? Click here and help out a brotha and a sista.
Onto other thangs…it was a b’fast for lunch day with a smashing jar of Over night morning Oats!
1/4 cup oat bran 1/4 cup rolled oats 1 (4-oz.) container Stonyfield YoBaby pear yogurt 1/4 cup skim milk 2 tbsp. unsweetened shredded coconut 2 tbsp. dried cranberries
~ soaked all morning ~
1 torn Organic Archer Farms pomegranate fruit leather the rest of my Zoe’s Honey Almond Granola
Overnight Lunch Oats
what did i ever do before overnight oats?
After lunchie, it was a nice 30-minute walk around the lake to clear my crazy mind.
Then back to work, where I think I also managed to find an uber-cute apartment in Madison. Cross your fingers it’s as cute in real life as it is in Craigslist pictures (which almost never happens!).
veggie + fruit snack plate
Now, the end of the day is here, and I am off to a company BBQ. Haha…gotta love those! I don’t know what kind of eats will be there, but I will try to fly MacGyver style and sneak some pics when no one is looking. Heck, what do I care if people look and stare? I’m gone in just over a week. Pics WILL be on their way later .
