Big Apple!

I had a fabulous time in New York last weekend. Of course it wasn't without it's share of mishaps along the way. It wouldn't be me we were talking about then. Of course, the day before I'm set to fly for the first time by myself to a city I've never been to, a plane crashes. Luckily in the city I'm going to and right next to the hotel I'm staying in. Fabulous.

Arrive at the airport on time. YAY! No problems. Oh wait, it's still early. Board plane- 10 minutes later- plane grounded. Sorry folks, mechanical issues. We'll try to get you another plane as soon as we can. 2 hours late- plane here! Run to the restroom and come back to find plane gone. Are you kidding me? Luckily I was able to catch another aout 20 minutes later but I was supposed to be in NYC at 10:35 and it was after 11 and I was still in Cinci.

I made it safe and sound. Hopped in my town car (actually it was a Merceded SUV- squee!) and dropped stuff out to the hotel. Snagged a cab and made it to find 2 starving ladies who had waited to have lunch with me. (it was now 3:00) Had a lovely lunch at the diner and then headed out on the town. Luckily I had only an hour to kill and it was freezing so I found Times Square and went sightseeing a little bit. OY! The people! The noise! Definitely an experience.

Drinks promptly at 5:15 at Ayza. Absolutely wonderful. Dinner at Cascata in the Village. Equally as wonderful aside from a couple of unwanted guests ;) oh and the fact that I ate ground on the subway. Who goes flying across the train when it takes off because she isn't paying attention and lands in the lap of some unsuspecting man who was completely mortified at the "out of towner" in his personal space? Um yeah, this girl does. Lots of laughs (by us, not him) and many apoligies. But I got to spend time with 3 wonderful friends in the city and I couldn't have been happier.

Saturday was full of sightseeing and walking. Lots of walking. Lots and Lots and LOTS! of walking. We went all the way up to Central Park and worked our way back till it was time to return to get ready for the Cookie Lee Soiree.

I met some of my Cookie Sisters and got to see the new line. (Amazing!) We had delicious appetizers and yummy Pina Coladas. Overall a very good day.

Sunday I was completely exhausted and since the weather decided to crap out even more I took a slightly earlier flight home. No issues there (Thank Jesus!) but yet it wouldn't be a complete weekend without 1 more snafu. I went to a party at a friends house and yep- a girl hit my car. Yay! Weekend complete. Insurance company came today and got me all set up with a rental for next week so I can get the buggy all fixed up.

And here comes the snow......

Back to Work!

Whew! This weekend flew by quicker than I would have hoped. I had an amazing time in NYC and got to meet some wonderful inspiring women at the same time.

For those that didn't know, my main reason for heading to the Big Apple was to check out the new line of Cookie Lee Jewelry and lay out a plan to re-focus myself for 2009.

The new line of jewelry is AH-MAZING! Absolutely gorgeous and 100% Cookie Lee style and quality. I'm so excited to be able to offer such a great product line to my family, friends, and customers.

Big Apple

Sorry for the lack of posts and picture recaps but I've been busy. No wait, I haven't been busy. I've been lazy. But that's okay because I'm jet setting off to NYC on Friday! Yes, I'll be exploring the city for the first time in freezing cold weather but I'll be loving every single minute of it. I'm meeting up with 3 of the most wonderful ladies in the world that I've known for about 2 years. And I'll get to do some networking and teambuilding with some of my other Cookie Lee sisters :)

(FYI- The new catalog is out! Check it out here- and there is also a new sign-up option for consultants interested in signing on! As always, let me know if I can help you!)

Happy New Year!

Another year has come and gone and of course it's now that time that everyone reevaluates and determines what they resolve to do for the upcoming 12 months. Of course, I'm doing the same but I'd rather share something else that I found while tinkering online today.

From Buster McLeod

I have a manifesto of 12 things you can do to make your life more interesting. They are:

1. You must not dilly-dally.
2. You must be your word.
3. You must have good intentions.
4. You must admit to being the maker of meaning.
5. You must not feel sorry for yourself.
6. You must have a vision that you are striving for.
7. You must tie creativity and experimentation with survival.
8. You must be the change.
9. You must rally others with your vision.
10. You must stake your reputation on your better self.
11. You must be responsible for your own failure and success.
12. You must be comfortable with big failure.

So here's to making 2009 a little more interesting!
