I'm in SUCH a good mood!

Why you ask?

Well, it all started with a great end to the week. I attended a professional women's seminar on Thursday. And man, was it inspiring! Thousands of professionals and multiple speakers and workshops. My fave of the day was most definitely Jean Chatzky, most famous for being the financial correspondent for the Today show and also the host of Oprah's "Debt Diet" show. I love her. She is so brilliant...and frickin adorable at that. I most definitely bought her new book "The Difference" and had her sign it. Oh, and I got a picture with her and she told me we could be friends on Facebook. I can't wait. Haha.

Next reason for my good mood you ask? Well, my "main" boss was out for a few days...and I felt SO relaxed. I didn't feel like there was so much pressure my heart may explode at any moment. So, our second-in-line-boss let us all go EARLY yesterday. Way to start my weekend!

THEN, I even got to eat my FAVORITE for dinner last night: On the Border! My family makes so much fun of me because we are in an area with the most elegant fine dining with the best Italian and Seafood in the U.S. and I always choose On the Border. I don't care. I HAVE to have my burrito.

Now this next item may not sound that exciting to the normal person, but for a nerd like me...I'm quite happy. Mr. Ruby and I have a LOT to do today (i.e. study, work on taxes, computer work). So, we're heading to the coffee shop to spend the day together.

Finally. I am PUMPED for tomorrow. We're taking the train to Boston for the Southie St. Patrick's Day Parade. I can't wait. It may get a teeny bit crazy. I mean, these are REAL Irish folk. There will be bagpipers everywhere...and of course green beer. Pictures soon to follow...

Hope the St Pattys day parade was great.

I also absolutely love burritos. I would choose it over most food anytime.

Hope you had fun at the parade - I'd love to see those photos!! And isn't it great when bosses are gone? I think they could be the best boss ever but you still need them to bail out of the office every now and then!

Sounds like a great weekend and weekend. I hope the parade was fun. I love Jean Chatzky from the Today show. She always has great advice. I didn't know she had a book. I'll have to check that out.

I meant "week and weekend", not "weekend and weekend" ;)
