We’re at now now

If you can name the movie…well pat yourself on the back! I’ve had a full week as you may have read in my first post from yesterday. What will it being birthday week and all. Let me tell you I am TIRED. Of course that also might be the late night game of Parcheesi talking too…

Friday of birthday week!

There is sadly only one more day of birthday week…until next year. Today was pretty mild at work, thankfully. Considering we were a woman down to answer the phones. The high point of work was def. grabbing a tasty breakfast sammich and nummy coffee that went by the name of Holy Cow. This was the most amazing mix of flavor I have ever had…vanilla, chocolate, AND caramel. Nom, nom, nom.

If you happen to be in the Albany area stop by Cafe 677 between 7 and 3. They do up breakfast and lunch. It was such a good breakfast sammich that I went back for lunch and had a grilled portabello, red pepper, and pesto sammich. This may be my new place for eats…until we move that is. Hopefully it won;t happen too soon!

COFFEE is a must after late night Parcheesi.

After work the Hubbins and I had to head to the mall, thankfully we knew what we wanted and got in and out quickly. Then headed to our local jeweler to get two rings fixed. One thankfully was only a costume piece, but it belonged to my Nonnie so that makes it priceless in my book. Sure it won’t be the same as it was, but at least I can get it fixed and on the cheap. I’m also getting a ring I’ve had FOREVER resized. It has to be close to 20 years since I was last able to wear it. So I’m pretty tickled that it too can be fixed for on the cheap.

Not that we’re cheap people. But I don’t like to break the bank if I don’t have to. While we were in said jeweler we were able to get our wedding bands and other rings and things sparkled up. They are rather blinding now…but look amazing. While we waited I headed next door to Starbucks because I was super thirsty and really had to use the loo.

My iced chai latte, with the largest straw ever!

That drink might just be a new fan favorite. MIGHT. There is much I have to discover at Starbucks I’m sure. I want to create the most amazing drink ever there…just to a. mess with my barista and test his/her metal and b. to blow peoples minds. I’m weird like that what more can I say?

In other news I plan to attempt to post something everyday, even if it’s only a photo…so see how long I keep that one up. (I’ve tried this before and FAILED!)
