Just Jess.

a 20-something Boston girl recently transplanted in NYC; approaching life with sarcasm, humor and quite a bit of laughter. Running, fluent in movie quotes and trying to figure it all out. Oh, and I'm usually pretty heavily caffeinated.

I made an iced black eye at work with this fancy shmancy coffee and espresso machine. Clearly it hit the spot for the afternoon caffeine lull.

Got in some cardio and weights before attacking the salad bar. I’d say this Monday was a win!

FRIDAY five!
This week has been so super B U S Y, and I wouldn’t have asked for it any other way. I was running between offices, making my way to bootcamp and spin classes, and trying to find time to relax and reset. 
I met up with Ms. Nicki (acitymaus) last night and she opened my eyes to a new world: Empire Biscuits. Go, go, go RIGHT NOW! Girlfriend, I’m still dreaming about it. 
There’s a breakfast place right near my office that makes these amazing options you can order, and they all come with free coffee (hot or cold). I repeat: THEY ALL COME WITH FREE COFFEE.
Today I sit in ONE office all day, which is a switcheroo from how it’s been lately. And I’m sort of relieved. Hooray for laid-back Fridays!
This weekend is for: fun, sun, friends, and relaxation. I hope you all do the same. 
That is all! I said g’day! View high resolution

Re: eggs conundrum

You guys are brilliant egg masterminds, so thank you for your assistance. I’ll try again tonight and see if I can adult in the egg world.

I decided to try anew and make poached eggs with salsa to bring to work (win!) and then I got 4 bananas for $1(!!!) and found the cuuuuuuuutest guy in our downtown office (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!).

This has been a morning.

I’ve got really pretty flowers that have bloomed and a very poor attempt at hard-boiled eggs. What did I do wrong? Egg pros: unite!
