A Day in the Life

So, I'm showing off where I spend most of my days.  We're sharing offices today at Kelly's Korner.  I'm guessing most are showing their home office, but I don't really have one.  Don't get me wrong we have a home office, but it isn't mine.  It's my husbands, unless you count my laptop which is kept on our sofa downstairs or the exorbitant amount of stationary I keep tucked in our guestroom closet as a home office.

My "office" office is my work office, and I love it and love my job.  I get to help make what could be the most negative situation in someones life into one of the most positive, and to top if off my colleagues are fantastic.

My office building is fully appointed and filled with friendly faces, of which our concierge Jane's is the friendliest there is.  It's always a pleasure to see her.  She is a true example of a professional and sweet as can be.

Up the elevator to my floor and down the hall to my lovely home away from home.  Complete with a tribute to the Gators and appointed with matching pink accessories, I mean really, does it get any better?  Even my recycling bin is pink!

I tried to stack as many things as possible under my monitor so I can see the screen without slumping over.  I'm one tall cookie.  After a few months I figured out this nice drawer feature was a lot more professional looking and functional than a stack of last year's Staples catalogs...what do you think?

Speaking of a nice view, mine is of Macy's could you think of anything more fitting?  It's my husbands worse nightmare - but it does help me maintain a Platinum Macy's Card.  Other than my office building being connected to the mall, another thing I love is having two Starbucks in walking distance.  I'm one lucky girl.

I have been exploring the coffee options at the office as well, making full use of our Flavia machine.  A few weeks ago I took myself on the Tour de Flavia.  Where I tried every flavor of coffee in the machine because I like to challenge myself.

It was a difficult task, but I succeeded.  I can now proudly say I have sampled every flavor of coffee my office has to offer.  But when it was all said and done, I returned to my old faithful House Blend taken with two Splendas, two Mini Moo's.  It's just perfect for me, and rumor has it the lighter the roast, the more caffeine.  Of course this information could be totally false, I think it was passed on to me by my husband who I can not describe as a coffee connoisseur by any means-ha!

* note the hubs reminded me that he is a former barista, and well trained in the art of coffee from the days his family owned coffee shops.  So he knows all about it, just doesn't drink it.  I guess I'm the connoisseur and he is the expert.
So there you have it, my office, was it as exciting as you thought it would be?

All I can say is TGIF.  Hope y'all have a great weekend.  You know I'll be cheering on my Gators.  Speaking of which, my husband went to Athens today to pick up an authentic stuffed Georgia Bulldog, so he can tie it to the back of his SUV and drag it from DC to Jacksonville in two weeks for the FL GA game-way to prepare in advance honey!

Saw your blog from Kelly's Korner! Your office building is so cool. Love that coffee machine, haven't seen one like that yet

Sarah Beth said...

I came over from Kelly's Korner and saw your stationary in the picture. My name is Sarah Beth too - I have only met 2 other Sarah Beth's (spelled the same way)in my life. I am from Tennessee, but currently live in Louisville Ky, where no one has a double name.
