Thank You.

A HUGE thank you to Audrey for planning the best surprise ever last night!  Thank you to everyone who came to celebrate; it really meant SO much to me.  I am going to miss everyone more than you know.  No dream job or trip to Paris could ever replace the memories I have made in Richmond over the past 7 years with all of you.  I am especially thankful for my days at Circuit City, because that is where I met some of the best friends I could ever ask for.  Everything happens for a reason, and I know there is a reason I am meant to go to Nevada, but I know it won’t compare to my time here.  Thanks again everyone, and Marlon, please post your pictures ASAP 🙂

I am a sucker for anything sweet, as you all know.  I googled ‘new holiday hershey kisses’ and stumbled across these ADORABLE cookies that are super simple and so festive!!!  I am making Black Friday goodie bags for some of my favorite girls (that I used to work with 😦 ) and I think these will be the perfect treat!  Luckily Brucie will be here tonight to help me!

Glitter.

I have loved glitter since I was 5 years old.  Eyeshadow, shoes (do you remember the jelly shoes with the silver glitter??), purses…you name it, I wanted it.  OPI recently came out with a new nail collection inspired by the Muppets and it brought me right back to being a little girl with round cheeks and mousy, stick-straight hair.  Here are my favorites (all glitter, of course):

Viva Las Vegas!

Ok…I have exciting news!  I am moving.  To Henderson, Nevada.  All by myself (eek!!!!).  I got a job with Zappos.com on their Zappos Couture website.  I am going to be a buyer for footwear, jewelry/accessories, and handbags!!!!!  I truly can’t even express my excitement and happiness that I was given this opportunity.  I also can’t believe I am moving all the way across the country in 3 weeks…

Before I flew out to interview my good friend Kim told me about a book, Delivering Happiness, by Tony Hsieh (CEO of Zappos) where I could learn about how the company started, their superior stance on customer service, and what truly won me over, the company culture.  The book is very inspiring and very real, but I started to wonder if what I was reading was actually true.  I will tell you from the moment I walked into the Zappos building, I knew something was different.  People hold the door for each other, smile and laugh, and welcome you in like they have known you for years.  It is truly an environment that encourages everyone to ‘be yourself’.  Any company that appreciates my desire to wear an animal print dress and neon blue nail polish to an interview is a company I’d like to work for (and they totally did!!).  Oh, and did I mention the free soda, nap rooms, and working from home on Fridays? 🙂 I am beyond thrilled to start this new chapter in my life.  It will be different, it will be hard, but most of all, it will be so fun!!!!  I will miss everyone SO MUCH.  I have an extra room, so please come visit me!!!!  xoxo

Where Am I?
