Stuff we do lately

Well in celebration of Bosses Day, or Bosses week, or whatever it is....

Thank you to my bosses. They are great.
(of course they will never read this since they are definitely not the blogging type)

We told them thank you with a waffle breakfast this morning. That was fun. We love them and how fun they make work. Even though one of them, we will call him the trickster for security reasons, likes to cut my straw off of our maverick cups every time we get a drink.

It's really sad.

(not to mention hard to drink) But no worries, we put a stash in my purse this morning on our maverick visit so we will have plenty of straws when this happens again. Because I'm sure it will.

But that's the kind of environment that they make, and it makes work a lot more enjoyable. 

While I was taking a picture of my sad straw, my attention turned to the awful messy state of my desk, so I decided to document that too. My office actually needs a makeover so maybe I'll get around to that soon. ha maybe not though..we'll see. :) For now, I'm going to try and be a bit more organized. Because that is really a mess.

I love my workplace. 

I also love our home. It's been so fun to try and come up with new ideas for rooms and trying to make it look nice and be functional. Pinterest has been a big help because then I can copy everyone's good ideas. I like that. 

So here's our best attempt at a workspace/office area for the room right off the entry. It's not quite decorated or finished, but here's what we've got so far. Oh and I didn't take many angles on the pictures so I'll post some more when it's done.

So this is before, I put a little collage on the wall, but that got old fast, so we got rid of that. Poor mike, he spent a lot of time handing those frames. 

We bought a bunch of bookshelves and a desk space...
And Mike is a champion and assembled them all in a few hours.

This is sort of during the process.

I also wanted to change up the doors a little bit, so we did some stripes with frost. 

Here are the stripes once I was done. I still have to do the other door. haha I'm just trying out the one for now.

And here's the best picture I had of the finished product. As you can see, there isn't much on some of the shelves so we are still working on that. And we also have to figure out a way to hide the lamp cords.
So there it is. 

Oh and we still have to bring down the computer once we get the internet figured out. I'll get a picture of that when we get it all set up. :) It was kind of a fun project to do a whole room makeover. Or I guess make-since we hadn't done anything with it. 

Well, now we are off to run the Vegas Ragnar this weekend. Hopefully that will be fun! I will let you all know. :)

P.S. There's this cute girl whose blog I stumbled across once that always writes a "PS I'm grateful for...." after her blog posts and I totally am going to copy her because I think it's such a good idea. And sometimes I can definitely count my blessings a little more and be a little more grateful. SO...

Today I am grateful for a great place to work.
