Did Pioneers Have Starbucks?

Everything has been work, work, and more work here at Whippany so my check in will be very short today.

This is a picture my sister-in-law sent me of my niece dressed for Pioneer Day at school!! 

Isn’t she soooo adorable?!?!! Look at those Melissa Gilbert braids (Little House on the Prairie reference)!!!



And this was my diner last night! YUMMY!!! The restaurant in my hotel just happens to be Ruth's Chris Steak House. This sea bass was so delicious!!! I also had the ahi tuna appetizer but ate it before I snapped a picture! HA!



I have started feeling a little sniffly (sniffing and coughing) so I grabbed a Citrus Defender from Starbuck's on my way into work this morning! It is two kinds of tea, little honey, and a little lemon.  These things taste awesome and will hopefully chase away any cold on it's way into my life!!

 
I hope everyone is having the weather turn around that we are here today....finally we are getting sunshine! Not hot - but at least sunshine. I am bound and determined to drive with the top down after work...I will get pictures!!! HA!

Happy Thursday ya'll!!!

HUGS!

  1. My boys all did Pioneer Day (I think when they were in fifth grade). Of course, their 'costumes' weren't as elaborate as the girls. They liked it that way.

  6. I just finished watching all the Little House episodes on Amazon Prime. OMG they are so not like I remembered as a kid. Most are very deep lol. For some reason it's raining here. So weird, usually we're almost 100 this time of year.

  13. Your niece is adorable! Hope the Starbucks drink did the trick. I think every time I'm on a plane, I get a cold. I don't fly unless there is not other way to get there. Feel better!

  15. That pioneer outfit is perfect!! Love the braids! The last couple of weeks I've been dealing with allergies, ugh. I never had seasonal allergies until I went through menopause. (I think it was worth it though!) :)

  19. I was talking to the little boy from down the block. "One hundred years ago there weren't any streets or sidewalks here."

    And he gave me that look like I'm the crazy one. "Then how did the Native Americans go grocery shopping at the Pick 'N' Save?"

    Can't argue with logic like that.
