Happy Monday all! Thank you all so much for the Good Luck comments, tweets, facebook messages and emails for my first day at my New Job. It totally made my morning jitters go away when I woke up and saw all your messages. For those that asked me to take a picture, here is what I wore for my first day with black dockers and super cute black shoes.
Totally FUNNY, but, kind of cool side note ~ We all take pictures for our badges just like this, BUT, with the new Microsoft Outlook 2010, they have it set up so your fancy face shows up on every email you send.
I actually ended up waking up way before my alarm so I had a nice leisurely morning. I whipped up Eggwiches for The Husband and I.
* 2 slices Trader Joe’s FF Multi-Grain Bread (3 points+)
* 1 “fried” egg (2 points+)
* 1 tsp whipped butter (1 points+)
Then, backed up a few things to take with me just in case I didn’t get the chance to grab lunch.
The Husband bought me a Starbuck’s for my commute ~ His on the left, mine on the right. I got a Grande NF, Decaf Latte with caramel drizzle on top (3 points+).
Let me just start out by saying I am completely and totally IN LOVE with my new workplace and the people.
This was sitting on my desk when I walked in ~ they all signed a Welcome card for me
There was also a bag of goodies ~ BECOME A GREEN LEADER ~ LOVE! They seriously know a way to my heart with all their sustainability measures.
Just a few of my favorite things in the bag ~ a Drink Coaster….
Sustainable Hot & Cold Mug that is made entire of…..
Other cool things I LOVE about my new work place aside from everything else I’ve told you:
* You can check out a bike for a ride anytime from the bike library
* They have an entire GYM on one floor for employees to use anytime
* The mini trash & big recycle bins complete with a composting program
* A water machine that has the “good crushed ice”
The view from my office with wall sized windows……To the left is the river….
With a FULL view of the River Cats Baseball Stadium and downtown on the right.
The Waterfront Café!!! This is the café in our building that is open for breakfast & lunch with a TON of options. I am pretty sure I NEED to do a full review of everything here for you all
My HUGE $6 salad….I had 15 minutes to eat between meetings so I had to take it to go.
I built this salad at our salad bar:
* Romaine, tomatoes, cucumber & steamed broccoli
* 1 Tbsp Grilled Corn & 1 Tbsp Chickpeas (1 points+)
* 1 Tbsp Sunflower Seeds (1 points+)
* 2 tsp dried cranberries & croutons that totally tasted like Thanksgiving (2 points+)
The BEST TWO parts of this salad that made it so you didn’t need dressing
~ Grilled Veggies & Egg Salad (4 points+)
The Husband told me he wanted to take me out to dinner to celebrate ~ no cooking works for me. We ended up at Mary’s Pizza Shack.
I got their usual salad with ranch on the side (4 points+)
BEST TRICK EVER ~ I really wanted pasta, but, I didn’t want the red sauce. Instead, I ordered the Grilled Chicken & Mushroom Fettuccine with NO Alfredo Sauce.
This totally hit the spot and I saved so many points+ by skipping the creamy sauce. (12 points+)
Keeping with the theme ~ Name one thing you LOVE about your job.
