Good Morning my Dashing Readers -
Before the week officially starts (ie: I walk into my office building), I just wanted to have some Monday Morning Coffee with all of you peeps and catch up a little bit. So, first things first, how was everyone's weekend?? Mine? It was full of taking care of one sick boyfriend. And that's been my life for the past two days. A ton of movies, vitamin C, soup, gatorade and cold compresses.
And holy cannoli - the response to the Starbucks giveaway was insane! 1111 entries. Wow. That was super cool to see soooooo many people participating in it. Unfortunately the first winner's winning entry was not valid (stopped following the person on a social media site); and so I had to pick another one. She wanted to remain anonymous so I didn't post her name in the widget - but I just had to publicly acknowledge on here how happy I was to see the giveaway do so well. Super awesome sauce!
ALSO - if you didn't read last week's post, I passed my CDM, CFPP credentialing exam (certified dietary manager and certified food protection professional)! Woo hoo! What am I going to do with that? Well it is necessary for my job - but I'm also thinking of writing a food safety for the home type of ebook to be a resource for families who don't realize that they may be jeopardizing their family's health (and it's preventable!).
Now that the burden of that exam has been LIFTED off my shoulders I can get back to focusing on some personal priorities such as this here blog, Chick Commander and some other things I'm doing to obtain a side income and start to make some decent money online. So my goal this week is to mind map my visions and goals for my online presence and figure out a plan. I know I know - quite vague, but it is what it is. Maybe I'll have something more concrete to share next week on that.
I'm off to drop off CJ at school and head in to work. I hope you all have a FABULOUS Monday :)
