Working Girl

That's me! This week I'm working in Westchester, New York (where I was born) at Pepsi headquarters. I'm staying at my Nanny's and commuting in a rental car, Chevy Malibu (holla!). And lucky me, it's the coldest it has been here in several years, goodie. It's nice being back in my old hood though and the snow that's on the ground is pretty despite the cold.

Next up, I'm heading to Washington, D.C. and will be there till Thursday for the Inauguration and local events and activities going on. The main purpose of my trip though is to be there to help 24 grade school students from Chicago blog about their experience at www.sharemyinauguration.com courtesy of the McCormick Foundation.

My friends who live in the area are leaving town in order to escape the crazyness that is expected in the city. I'm excited and not sure what to expect though. I haven't been to the city for almost 10 years now, back when I was looking at colleges. I'm excited and hope to report back with some interesting news.

Despite the opportunity, I'm going to be missing my babies, but hopefully I'll be getting some good blog fodder for you all and of course, witness history!


  1. The last car I rented was a Malibu. Those things are pretty powerful for a car named Malibu.

  2. Be careful on those roads, these sub-zero temps means that the road salt won't melt the ice...

    On a more cheerful note, enjoy! I know NYC is glad to have you back!

  3. oooh that sounds like so much fun. have a great time in NY and DC! :)

  4. Have a great time! I'm staying as far away from DC as possible this weekend :)

  5. So great to see how involved kids are getting in the Obama surge. The whole thing is so damn exciting. Usually I'd already be tired of the coverage and hoopla, but this time around... I'm giddy!

    Hope D.C. goes well. Good luck finding parking.

  6. Traffic in DC is going to be a nightmare. Try to use the Metro when you can and stay out of the streets.

    Looking forward to hearing about DC during the Inauguration!

  7. Jealous of all the travel. Bring back some pics to upload!

  8. Your posts never cease to make me smile and laugh. The chevy malibu comment? Priceless!
