Well thanks to Access Hollywood and my Facebook and Twitter family for getting me through my hour of cardio this evening. I sent out this photo with 18 minutes left of my workout requesting some fun company and wow did my social media friends truly come to my rescue. I appreciated the encouragement as well as my peeps who told me I was insane for staying on one piece of equipment for an hour. Yeah... you're right! Sometimes you just need to spice things up at the gym a bit...and I really didn't tonight!
Before I reached 43 minutes I realized how lucky I was to have a gym all to myself that night. I felt extra important to be honest... then I suddenly felt like I was missing out on a party. Was I the ONLY one working out on the Upper West this evening???
Ok so I really felt slightly guilty of the thought of eating a decadent dessert later because I ate Pinkberry for lunch today. How brilliant is their packaging when you take their treats to go? Ice included... to decrease the possibility of major melting? Then if you sprain your ankle on the way home (G-d forbid) you
have an ice pack ready...
Thanks to my sweet friend at Pinkberry (I won't say your name to get you in trouble) my small yogurt was upgraded to a medium on the house and YES I felt like I won the lotto!!! You're fabulous and you know who you are!!! That's a perfect Spunky Schmoozer type of gift! FYI...add a little cinnamon to the Pumpkin Pinkberry flavor and the combo is really worth the calories... then add some fresh fruit... and it's even better! Those salted and sweet pumpkin seeds in this picture are amazing too!
I rarely buy Lotto tickets but I decided while I was all wound up at the gym that I had to be a potential Mega Millions winner tonight for some reason. Sure... my odds would be higher to become the first Jewish Female President of the USA... but the simple thought of winning is just truly exciting!
EXTRA spontaneous nosh is like winning the Lotto until you need to get your tush to the gym... don't you think?
If I win Mega Millions... I can hire an almost 24/7 cute trainer to move in with me! ;)
Follow me on Twitter @SpunkySchmoozer and tell me what your fave nosh is and if you've ever won the Lotto! Scratch off Lotto tickets count too of course!

It's National Cupcake Day!!!
I know you're so excited that you can't sit still. Seriously... I LOVE cupcakes! I really do and Sprinkles created the world's first cupcake bakery (in Beverly Hills) and they have the best peanut butter chocolate cupcakes that I've ever tasted. They serve other fabulous kinds too of course (Pumpkin is ridiculously good). I've tasted my fair share of sweets across the USA... so I know! It was love at first sight in Beverly Hills a few years ago... when I first experienced Sprinkles. I have so many fun memories from all over the country revolving around catching up with clients, close friends, and family while noshing on cupcakes.
I like these treats so much that my friend Jodi had to send me cupcake dental floss when she noticed that item on the West Coast recently. I'm NOT making that up! Thanks Jodi... just what I always needed! ;)
Our economy is so crazy right now but Sprinkles is expanding. We all need to nosh every once in a while during this Recession of course (even if our clothes no longer fit) and from the lines sometimes at their cupcake shops... you would think their snacks are being given away. These cupcakes are totally worth going to the gym for... TRUST me!
Sprinkles is opening in NYC in April. It's about time... not that my figure needs too many cupcakes of course. I'll need a treadmill in my studio soon but honestly.... why can Texans enjoy your treats Sprinkles before the NYC foodies can? Not fair!
If I'm in town for opening day I hope you hook me up Candace Nelson (fabulous Founder of Sprinkles). You have no idea how many people I have introduced to your amazing cupcakes. Check out Sprinkles at www.sprinkles.com! Let me know what your favorite cupcake is... even if it's not from Sprinkles.
Be honest with me... aren't you totally craving a cupcake after seeing my picture? I AM!!!
Are you following me on Twitter at @spunkyschmoozer yet? If you're not...what are you waiting for?

We bonded with fun Elaine (only me) at AMC Loews Lincoln Square before our movie started and learned all about the thousands of people who saw Harry Potter 7 the morning before at 4 am. Ok...I loved HP7 (had to see this movie during opening weekend as well) ...but 4 am people? That's nuts!!! Our movie ended up starting at 12:45 am (my friend messed up the time by 35 min...ONLY MEN) so we were just as CRAZY I guess!!! At least Harry Potter is worth seeing!

As much as I enjoy the finer things in life...I can be just as easily impressed with tiny surprises and very simple pleasures.
I met one of my closest college friends for dinner last minute in Westchester with her son tonight. His favorite eating establishment these days is IHOP. He's one of the most adorable kids in existence (I'm not partial or anything) and of course...as his fun aunt...I decided that we couldn't dine at any other joint this evening.
I walked in there thinking I was going to eat a healthy egg white omelette until I was inspired by the kid's menu. The spunky kid at heart in me made my dining decision very easy for a change.
I had to taste a chocolate chip pancake...which was my favorite as a kid...of course!!!
As I was watching my nephew overly excited to dunk his pancakes into strawberry syrup (I must admit I like it too!) minus his fork (I do use utensils btw)...I was thinking a chocolate pancake wouldn't simply be enough...
I made a very SERIOUS request to our teenage waiter. I asked for the kid smiley face to be added to my pancake with a huge grin. The funniest part of our dining experience was that our server wasn't one bit shocked after my very significant demand. He just nodded and smiled!
I was SO thrilled with my pancake that I just smiled at it for several minutes (while doing my very meaningful photo shoot) until my edible smile started to melt right off my dish. My pancake looked like it had been through the mill by the time I actually ate it.
I'm still smiling about my amazing dinner company and my chocolate chip pancake. I love how my 5 1/2 year old nephew ordered eggs with mini plain pancakes and I chose the smiley face chocolate chip pancake without any hesitation!
I encourage you all to go to your nearest IHOP immediately to order this nosh. It's so much fun to be an adult kid every once in a while!!! Sometimes a simple, spontaneous, and harmless decision can make one temporarily forget about stressful situations and just simply make you SMILE!
As IHOP says...Come hungry. Leave happy.
How do I know their slogan? My nephew told me! Yes...he really did!
I totally agree with their slogan. Funny...I actually walked into IHOP tonight NOT so hungry...but I sure left EXTREMELY HAPPY!!!!!

Ok...Walter handed me $31.89 to be exact. Change really adds up and yes I get excited about little things in life. I didn't need that MUCH pizza money for that night! I told Walter what I was up to for the evening (have no idea why I felt the need to tell him but I did) and he got very excited actually. I almost invited him but I didn't want him to get in the way of our girl talk. Look what a HAM he was for my blackberry camera when I asked him to pose. He's probably moonlighting and doing something VERY different than banking...
I couldn't wait to catch up with my good friend over pizza all night since we had plenty to chat about. We were only going to places where we both hadn't tried the PLAIN cheese slices. Who needs Sex and the City when you can create your own Pizza and the City right?
