Happy Holiday!

Hey everyone! Happy (almost) 4th of July! Β I hope that everyone has the holiday weekend off to enjoy friends, family, fireworks, and whatever else you may have in store. I’ve been reunited with my camera so I can finally post with pictures.

Yesterday I received two packages and both were awesome! First one was from my sister and it contained: 2 100 calorie chocolate bars (which were promptly crumbled into pumpkin pancakes), one sugar-free cookie, and the cutest Bulldog with wings t-shirt. She knows all about my obsession with Eleanor so obviously I’ll wear it with pride. Thanks SISSY!

It was that kind of night.

The second package was from my friend inΒ Vermont. In it came my camera that I had left at her house and a beautiful necklace that she bought for me as a graduation present. It’s from a local Vermont artist and I LOVE it. I’ve worn it once and got a bunch of compliments on it. Thanks Biff!!! One day when I have extra money to play with I’m going to send out all kinds of packages. They can really brighten up someones day.

Good news on the home front— I got a summer job working for Attune foods. A while back I reviewed Attune chocolate bars and made a connection with the wonderful woman who hooked me up with the products. We remained in contact via email/facebook so when she heard I needed a job, she hooked me up with a summer gig. The Red Sox partnered with Attune to promote Uncle Sam’s cereal. I will be the chick behind the table giving out samples at events, grocery stores, etc. Some of the events sound pretty fancy, like serving Uncle Sams to the wives of the Red Sox. I’m totally psyched about this because it sounds low-key and fun; exactly what a summer job should be. Considering I just got my MSW, I’ll be searching for a Social Work job for the Fall. Yay for connections!! Thanks Annelies.

I’m off to Connecticut for the weekend for a BBQ at my pops house, complete with biking, kayaking and food. I’m imagining a bunch of junk food so pray for me that I don’t eat myself into a coma. Enjoy the weekend!!!!

      • the cookie wasn’t that good but don’t worry, I ate it anyway. She buys them for a store called Tasty Delights in Pa. I think you can order them. Hope all is well friend.

        • oh NO it wasn’t?!? dry? 😦 she raves about them ALL the time but she has unique tastes for everything SF/Low Carb/Fat Free right?? haha

          Comment by Brittany | July 5, 2010 | Reply

          • Not so much dry… it was definitely good and I didn’t feel guilty eating it but it probably wasn’t worth the cost. And the chemicals for that matter.
