It's OK Thursday!


It's OK Thursdays with Amber and Neely.

It's OK...

.. that I was part time for far longer than I wanted to be, because I'm now officially a 
FULL TIME 
employee at, what I believe is the greatest company in the world :)

I found out the amazing news towards the end of my review, so approximately at 1:45 yesterday. There were tears, hugs, congratulatory emails, people that stop by my desk to congratulate me, and the CEO came over to give me a high five while wearing a bathing suit (FYI: he had a shirt on as well). I don't think it can get more official than that.

I'm just so extremely grateful to be part of such an amazing company. The environment in which we work is unlike any other and if that doesn't make it amazing enough, the people are just incredible. All I know is it was worth the wait!

Last night when I got home I had these pretty things waiting for me
 We headed to Bonefish for dinner. Nothing like bang bang shrimp to celebrate :)

It's OK..

..that the wait was 50 minutes so we grabbed a high top in the bar area. We waited 22 minutes for someone to come greet us. 22 MINUTES! Not only did it take her that long to come over but she didn't apologize for the wait. I was appalled. At that point, I just wanted to get my bang bang and leave. Being in the service industry for some many years, I feel like I have sympathy for servers, but that was just ridiculous. We got an app and a few drinks and hit the road.

From there we met up with a couple of friends that helped me celebrate! Justin suggested Irish Car Bombs. I hadn't had one in well over 3-years so it was an interesting choice but of course delicious :)


It's OK..

.. that I'm about to spend a massive amount online today at Tobi. I've got to have my shopping spree celebration, too ;)

.. that I'm going out for dinner and drinks tonight for the 4th time in a row. Sista needs to catch up on her shows, cleaning and sleep. Not to mention I'm sure my liver could use a break!

Today EVERYTHING is OK.. I'm on cloud 9 :)
