Grandiflora just won!!

Grandiflora Home and Garden just won Best of Western Washington for the 2nd year in a row!  I just had to quick "toot" their horn!!  They are certainly the best to work for!!

I have been working a LOT of hours lately as we are getting ready to launch our online store, Grandiflora Home in the next couple weeks!

Here is the beautiful tree that I get to look at every day outside my window....
 And here is what I have for breakfast every morning right now............  :)
I LOVE my job and my bosses are the best!  And obviously there are a LOT of people that think Grandiflora is the best!!  Just a hint - if you haven't been in there recently - it looks AMAZING right now!

A DYI episode

I use to get my hair cut every 7 weeks and colored every 14 weeks and highlighted every 21 weeks.  Now I'm into being cheap (thanks to the economy :) and I have become a DYI in the hair dye department.   I have my hairdresser highlight my hair 2 times a year - that way when I color it myself it isn't one dimensional. 

It was time - my hair is naturally almost black (it keeps getting darker as I get older - minus the grey hairs), so after a summer of bleach out - proof we had SOME sunshine - it was time because the grow out line was about 2 inches!
Monday night I donned my ol' sweatshirt and pulled out my favorite box of Loreal haircolor........
.........and 45 min. later it looked like this! This is the just blown dry version.

With my coupon I got my box o'color for $5 - so I think I just saved about $70!

I must be getting older..........that's right - I did!

I've decided I must be getting older because I forget things every now and then (like THIS POST a few weeks ago proves)................

So this last Saturday we had dinner with the friends for my birthday and I DID remember my camera, and I DID remember to take pics of this..................
 and this.......
 ....the fabulous food
 ......the beautifully plated dessert
....................but that's it............not ONE picture of any of us!  YES, I AM getting older!!!

A Perfect Day!

Yesterday Kathi and Marla took me away for the day (and my bosses gave me the day off:).  We started with Latte's and scones and headed to Mt. Vernon to go shopping.  It was so relaxing and fun!  It was one of those days where we all 3 found stuff that fit (miracles at our age!).  Lunch was at Jimmy Carrino's

 Spinach Artichoke dip on garlic toast - AWESOME!

 The restaraunt called this "grown up" mac and cheese!
 and then we shopped some more (as you can see we were "successful").
Dinner at Cancun with Randy, Miranda, Nathan and Emily (if Brandon were there it would've been perfect!)
So many wonderful birthday wishes, via text and FB.  Presents from so many friends.....and I'll show you what Randy got me when I'm home long enough to use it and photograph it in action!

This made me laugh today.................

My friend Amy posted this on Facebook and it made me laugh out loud!

Since life has been insanely crazy with work I got nothing to share, so I hope this makes you laugh too!

Happy Thursday!
