MMM!

 

Lunch

 

Lunch included three delicious parts… first up, a big bowl of juicy watermelon.

Up next:  wonderful soup and a yummy wrap!

The wrap was a Flat Out wrap with cottage cheese, chicken deli meat, and spinach.

And the soup was 1 cup of the Roasted Red Potato soup I made a few days ago.

Dessert:  Organic Oreos, aka crack cookies.

Back to work I go!

 

Question of the Day:  How do you "sign" work e-mails? I like "Thanks! Caitlin"  but I also use "Have a great day! Caitlin" or "Let me know! Caitlin" all the time.  I personally hate "Sincerely"!  šŸ™‚

    haha BAHH i just sent an email, and agonized for literally MINUTES over my sign-off…and now feel like a douche for writing- “Sincerely, Caroline”…;D I knew it was a bad call too

  • Dori April 22, 2009, 9:45 am

    I sign work emails internally “Thanks, Dori.” If it is external I say “Best, Dori.”

  • Neely April 22, 2009, 9:46 am

    Regards,

    Neely

  • Megs April 22, 2009, 9:46 am

    I use “Thanks, Meighan”

  • VeggieGirl April 22, 2009, 9:50 am

    I just sign it as “thanks” or something.

  • livelaughlyss April 22, 2009, 9:52 am

    If it’s formal I always use “Thanks! – Alyssa” or “Best, Alyssa”. If it’s not, my phrase of choice would be “Peace up, A-Town down”, compliments of Usher. (My friends call me A-Town, hahaha.)

  • Leah @ Simply Fabulous April 22, 2009, 9:53 am

    If it’s formal I use “Thank you, Leah” but i’ve noticed a lot of people here use “Regards.”

  • Audrey April 22, 2009, 10:05 am

    i’m a big fan of thanks so much! unless its a stuffy client in which case i take out the ! haha..emails to coworkers i just sign -aud. i always use a signature line so i figure thats professional enough.

  • Betsy April 22, 2009, 10:10 am

    I use sincerely a lot with people I don’t know.. but with coworkers I don’t think I sign it at all!

    And no offense if anyone does this, but when people use “Cheers,” as their email send off – I cringe, ugh it’s awful!

  • Holly April 22, 2009, 10:14 am

    Hi! Just wondering if the pumpkin raising flavor is “pumkin-y” tasting or just includes pumpkin seeds. Does that makes sense? Thanks!

  • Moran April 22, 2009, 10:15 am

    I second Betsi – I do NOT like “cheers”!

  • Julia April 22, 2009, 10:16 am

    I’ve noticed a lot of people say “-best”. For less formal emails, I just say “thank you” “have a great afternoon,” or something like that, but for more formal emails, I’ve been using “my” sign off for a while now, because it goes really well with my job description.

    ps your cereal looks so delicious! Do you know if its new? I havent seen it anywhere!

  • runsarah April 22, 2009, 10:19 am

    I sign mine Thanks, Sarah for the most part!

  • Brandi April 22, 2009, 10:19 am

    congrats to Ari!

    I usually sign it:

    Best,

    Brandi

  • almosthealthychris April 22, 2009, 10:20 am

    Thanks so much for the recipe! I can’t wait to try it. Wow I get hungry simply looking at your food pics. That wrap and the cookie look so good. I Love your blog. It has truly inspired me to try new foods

  • jessica.blakewood@gmail.com April 22, 2009, 10:24 am

    I am a nerdy lawyer so I sign my emails “Very truly yours” and then end with a big legal disclaimer:)

  • redheadedjournal April 22, 2009, 10:31 am

    I do:

    Thanks,
    Marissa

    Then my formal e-mail signature.

    But only if I know the person really well otherwise formal it is šŸ™‚

  • L.A. Daze April 22, 2009, 10:38 am

    How do you fold your wraps so nicely? Mine always stick out at the end, I hate it! And then the wrap rips! Boo.

    For work emails, it’s usually “thanks, Chantalle” or “Thanks! Chantalle”

  • Help Meghan Run April 22, 2009, 10:38 am

    Your wraps always look so good! I’m going to start eating those more often. (And I always use: Thanks! Meghan)

  • RhodeyGirl/Sabrina April 22, 2009, 10:41 am

    I ALWAYS sign with:

    Thanks and best regards,
    Sabrina*

    *sometimes with my last name, sometimes not.

    My whole office does, unless its a back and forth series over a short time in which case it gets shortened to

    a. Thank you,
    b. Thanks,
    c. Best,
    d. Regards,
    e. Best regards,

    We deal with a lot of international customers, and the “thanks and best regards” seems to be what they use too

  • trialsoftraining April 22, 2009, 10:47 am

    Ohhh, Oreos. favorite cookie, hands down. I love the Christmas ones best šŸ™‚ haha.

    I hardly Ever use “sincerely”. I’m also more of a “thanks!” or “let me know” kinda gal too!

  • PRT April 22, 2009, 10:54 am

    Since most of my emails goes to people I barely know, it’s a rule of my company to always maintain the emails impersonal and professional, so we always goes with “Best regards” or “Regards”. In the personal ones, I usually finish them with “kisses” in spanish (Besos) and my name.

    Those wraps look yummy! I’m thinking my dinner…

  • Leila April 22, 2009, 11:02 am

    Great breakfast! I love Nature’s Path cereals.

    I don’t really like sincerely either, it makes me think of a “sorry for your loss” type of thing. I like signing “Cheers” or “Thanks”.

  • iowagirleats April 22, 2009, 11:07 am

    I say “Thanks so much, Kristin” or if I’m ticked I just say “Thanks” šŸ˜‰

  • Life Coach Jen April 22, 2009, 11:10 am

    I think I always say, “Thanks” at the end. I never liked writing “regards” or “sincerely”

  • Melanie April 22, 2009, 11:16 am

    if it’s an internal team email, i sign it Go Team! Mel

    if it’s client facing, usually something like: thanks! mel, or if you have any questions don’t hesitate to reach out! mel

  • greendogwine April 22, 2009, 11:20 am

    I always sign it:

    Let me know if you have any questions!

    Thanks!

    Allison

    (love my !!!! marks)

  • megan April 22, 2009, 11:24 am

    haha i always sign “Thanks” even if it makes no sense at all. It’s kind of automatic now šŸ™‚

  • Quinn April 22, 2009, 11:34 am

    I am a big fan of the “Best regards, Quinn.”

  • nibblesandwiggles April 22, 2009, 11:41 am

    I do not sign my emails. I just have my “signature” included in all of them, but no closing statement.

  • Carolina John April 22, 2009, 11:43 am

    my company has a standard email signature with one of those long stupid disclaimers. The only thing I got to add was “thanks, ” and my name. blah.

  • Sara April 22, 2009, 11:55 am

    Your wrap looks SO good. I want that for lunch! šŸ™‚ My email signature is: Best regards, Sara

  • emily April 22, 2009, 12:26 pm

    crack cookies is right, I basically can’t keep oreos in the house!

  • Lynne April 22, 2009, 12:27 pm

    Usually it’s just “Thanks, Lynne” and then my formal signature with title, phone #, email, etc.

  • kirsten April 22, 2009, 12:28 pm

    I say Thanks! I hate when people write Best or Regards.

  • Oh She Glows April 22, 2009, 12:44 pm

    haha fun question!

    I typically sign it ‘Thanks!’ or ‘Talk to you soon!’ or if more professional ‘many thanks’ always does the trick šŸ™‚

  • Melissa April 22, 2009, 12:44 pm

    To colleagues and clients:
    Best Regards šŸ™‚
    To friends: Peace out..
    hahaha

  • Princess in Training April 22, 2009, 12:58 pm

    Hey!!! your lunch looks so yummy!!

    Can you post the recipe for the red potatoe soup?! Potatoe soup is my fav!

    “Thanks,
    Jess”

    šŸ™‚

  • Katie April 22, 2009, 1:05 pm

    I sign all of my work e-mails “Have a great day! Katie”

  • Meredith (Pursuing Balance) April 22, 2009, 3:25 pm

    When I worked at a feminist nonprofit I would get emails signed “Yours in sisterhood, ____” or “Together for equality, ______”.

  • K from ksgoodeats April 22, 2009, 3:37 pm

    I still need to try CC in a wrap!! I usually sign it as “Thanks, K” or “Thanks for your time, K” but I feel like such an idiot half the time when I write professional emails!

  • Jewels April 22, 2009, 4:08 pm

    i change it depending on situation/person but theres an automatic few lines at the end with name/title/contact/etc

    Loved your post this AM, insightful as always!

  • Nate April 22, 2009, 4:52 pm

    Thanks is the only way to go. I delete anything that is signed with Warm Regards or Cheers. Unless it is a British client, in which case Cheers is fine. Sometimes I go with Seacrest – out. Or I sign it Love, Nate…just to see if my coworkers are paying attention.

    And Caroline wins best comment of the day. That’s some funny stuff.

  • Caitlin at Healthy Tipping Point April 22, 2009, 5:43 pm

    julia – no you can get at costco! its not new.

    holly – no just pumpkin seeds, not pumpkiny flavor.
