You said it Rock!

I am feeling like a racehorse at the starting gate. Just two months ago, Mr. Awesome Fiance (Ray) and I packed up our little NorCal life and settled down in the land of strong deeds and gentle words… Maryland. I’m still with Safeway but now, that I have my MBA, I have my sights set on a government position. It is a slow process but I think a good start to a business career. Hence, feeling like a racehorse… I’m ready…let me out! Open, open, open!
In the mean time, we are cracking down on the diet and exercise regime… P90X style.
Bring It!

Feeling Loved

I am going to miss my Safeway 1211 family. As the old saying goes: “it was the best of times, it was the worst of times” but we got through it together. You never know how much you impact people daily. I received so many gifts, hugs, and good luck. It really proves how little acts of kindness make a difference (even when I may not be having the best day). Happiness has a ripple effect and at the end of the day knowing I made a small difference makes me feel like a hot air balloon that could go to space!

I Freakin’ Did It!

I am incredibly happy to announce that I am finished with my MBA. It was a long hard year; doing two classes every eight weeks but I got it done! I also have to toot my horn because I received a GPA of 3.92! Toot Toot! I almost don’t know what to do with myself… I come home and there are no more papers. Now, it is time to look for a career and dabble with hobbies! Life is about to get epic..

Let’s bring a little love into the world!

At my Starbucks, we decided  to decorate  for valentine’s day. My team and I thought  it would be fun to write down our definitions of love… of course  we left it anonymous; some where beautifully written and others where just flat out funny. So, we decided to ask our customers to put down their ideas and thoughts. In just an hour our main window was full of love! The funniest was a 10 year old boy who wrote “love is… snowing”. An older lady said “love is…grand-babies”. My other favorite…”love is… unconditional with a fluffy tail and a wet nose”. Someone else said “love is… Hershey bars”
There are a lot of messed  up things in the world but love is… awesome!

#pharrellforSB50

The Super Bowl half time show was amazing this year! I loved Katy Perry’s song choice, guest appearances and the theatrics were something that is sure to go down in Super Bowl history!

I feel that next year’s half time show is going to be even BIGGER for the 50th anniversary. I am pretty sure that for this show the NFL will start planning early. So, I want to spark the fire for the artist of choice.

For the 50th anniversary it needs to be someone who has experience, who is popular, and most importantly can engage the masses! As an American tradition, people of all ages will be watching. So no nip slips please.

This year the Super Bowl had 114.5 million viewers making it a record and I can only imagine how many will watch next year. It needs to be a ‘rock star’ who knows how to ‘drop it like its hot’ and ‘hollaback (girl)’. It needs to be someone who can read those ‘blurred lines’ and create something out of ‘nothin’ to make you feel ‘happy’. Who better for the half time show than the man who has more pop than soda…the one and only Pharrell Williams!

He has worked with so many artists and vast genres. He does it all sings, writes, produces, the list goes on. The man is nothing less than genius and in my opinion a vampire (he still looks 20)! Also, being on the hit T.V show the Voice, he has just added another feather to go in his fedora hat of connections with Blake Shelton ( the country music king). He would be able to pool so many resources and make the 50th half time show…

legend (wait for it) dairy!

I ask those reading this pass it on and spark the fire…#pharrellforSB50
