Mixing Business and Pleasure


Barely more than 24 hours after getting laid off, I had a networking lunch. I met the awesome Natasha, the voice behind the Physique 57 social media presences, for lunch at Local in SoHo. Before joining Physique, she did social media consulting, so I asked her advice and told her what an awesome job she does with Physique’s social media presence. We both chose the same sandwich–turkey with avocado, bacon and goodness.

It’s a gorgeous day in NYC, so I rode my bike down to meet her, about three miles. I made it there alive! I was shocked. I was also shocked to see, when I finished lunch, that my bike was still there. I locked it up, but I’ve heard horror stories of people’s bikes being stolen in NYC. To get there, I rode through the streets, because it was fastest. On my way back, I took a more leisurely route going across West Houston to the water.

Why does this look so blurry?


Oh, right. I had my lens on manual focus.


Tonight I have my Junior League End of the Year party, so no more blogging today! Or really, for quite some time tomorrow either.

Greetings from Rhode Island: My First Great Harvest Experience!


I got up to Rhode Island this afternoon, and we went to look for lunch. Some of the fam went to Walt’s Roast Beef, but I saw a Great Harvest and wanted to try it. I feel like it’s the Body Pump of breads. Awesome, popular in the blogging world, but not easy to come by in NYC.

I mean, if Kath and her husband are opening one, it’s got to be healthy, right?



If I weren’t going from here to Boston and from Boston to Baltimore, I might have picked up a whole lot more, but I just picked up a gift and a Kahuna bar for me.


I went for a California cobb sandwich–turkey, avocado, bacon and a little blue cheese spread (okay, not totally healthy. But totally yummy.) on nine-grain bread with lettuce, tomato and onion.


And a little onion ring from Walt’s.
