Happy Wednesday and More Preppy Puppy Pictures!

Hi friends! I hope y'all had a great weekend. We enjoyed our company from Germany. They arrived on Saturday and left yesterday morning. It was fun to show Isabell around because it was her first trip ever to the United States. Felix brought us some wine from his vineyards as a thank you gift for letting them stay with us. It was a little tight with four people in our one bedroom apartment (I was really missing my old 3/2 in the South). But, we still had a good time.

We went here on Sunday. The weather was perfect....cool and clear and we enjoyed walking all over the city. To warm up we stopped by Starbucks and I got my 1st skinny latte. Have y 'all tried them yet? I got the Cinnamon Dolce and it was FABULOUS! I tried the Vanilla yesterday. For 90 calories, I'm pretty sure I'll try all the flavors in the next few weeks. I also really want to try the new Milky Way Hot Chocolate from Duncan Donuts. It has been calling my name as I pass by it each morning, but I'm scared to look at the nutrition facts. I love their regular hot chocolate!

We stopped by the MOMA and had a great time seeing all of the new exhibits. I took lots of pictures and will share them with y'all as soon as I upload them. We brought them to lunch here (it was really just for the cheesecake though). The food was not that good, but their cheesecake is the best in the city. We had a great dinner here, the latest stop on my Mexican tour of NYC. I really liked their steak tacos and margaritas!

On Monday, I had to go back to the doctor. I have to have MORE tests run. I have one tomorrow and they are waiting to schedule the other procedures. I was pretty freaked out on Monday, but I've calmed down now and am just glad I'm in the care of great doctors. They think they are on the right track to figuring out what is wrong with me...so that is good. Hopefully this will all be over soon!

I have Monday off and I am so excited! Because of my husband's new permanent position his hours are really late and I don't think he'll be off. I was hoping to get out of the city. I would love to go skiing. I lived in Breckenridge, CO for a year after I graduated from college and I LOVE to ski. I know New England skiing is different, but I really just love to be on the mountain. Does anyone have any suggestions of great places to try?

I'm also counting the down the days until I get to go home for Mardis Gras! I can't wait to hang out with my friends and since we are all going to be on the same float this year it is going to be so much fun. I got my costume in the mail yesterday and it is too funny! I think I mentioned the theme of our parade is "Girl's Just Wanna Have Fun" and I'm on the Chick Flick float. We are all dressing up as characters from our Chick Flicks and I'm doing Legally Blonde. I have a really funny blonde wig! It is going to be a blast!

Well, that is it for now. I hope everyone is doing great and I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Daisy is such a gorgeous dog! Happy belated birthday to her.

So, I tried the skinny latte yesterday too, and it was great! And it has protein too. I'll have to try the cinnamon dolce tomorrow. :)

I love skinny lattes too. I had one with soy--not sure about soy but thought I would give it a try.
Love the sugar-free hazelnut too.
I love your blog...just came across it. Trying to get mine going..."a work process" Love the dogs!

A few years ago I ordered a whole Carnegie Deli cheesecake for my husbands birthday. It was so huge we froze most of it and served it for months. It freezes great though and is the best cheesecake ever! Maybe it's time to order another.......

Glad to hear you are starting to feel some peace about your tests. I went through the gammet of tests to diagnose an issue I have and it took forever, so I can totally relate. Would be happy to be an ear if you needed someone to sympathize:) In the meantime, I'll keep you in my prayers!

Daisy is too cute.

I'm glad you have good docs. I'm sure they'll get to the bottom of things soon. Good luck! sending good thoughts your way. I LOVE the caramel skinny latte. AND 90 calories. yay!

Good luck with your tests. That must be hard. I hope they figure out the issue soon. Hang in there.

I just love looking at your dog's pics, such a cutie pie!

Some good places to ski in NY-some have day trips and buses at several spots in NYC-Wyndham Mountain, Hunter Mountain-I believe Princeton Ski shop in NYC
may have buses that leave on the weekend-also VT is great-Stowe, Sugarbush, killington, Stratton, Bromley-Massachusetts-Brodie, Jiminy Peak-Catamount...

Good luck
