But for today I thought I would do a recap of all the things I did this week.
One of the bigger things to report is I started my summer gig this week - and I LOVE IT!!!! I'm working for one of my girlfriends who owns a little PR company. PR is what I used to do before I became a teacher...it's something I always enjoyed doing but wasn't what I thought I wanted to do with my life, forever...so I switched roads and took the teacher path. This week has totally surprised me though- I'm not sure if it's cause it's different, or new, or I love working for JulieAnna, or if it's just a combination of all of the above but it's been so refreshing! And fun!! and I'm super excited to go to work or sit down and do work (I work from home part of the time...which of course is kind of awesome as well) - I mean really...how many people can say that?! But it's true I'm loving it!!
Anyway, as far as what I do - I kind of do a little bit of everything. I'm sort of her assistant, mixed with the girls' assistant (she has two regular full time employees that work for her), I edit stuff, I put together media lists, I run errands, I organize stuff, work on the computers, read magazines, research, write, mail stuff, hey I even baby sit!! (She has a one-year old who has a nanny there most of the time, but like on Thursday when she was at a meeting until 4 and nanny had to leave at 3 I got to play with Michael for an hour!! Maybe the best way to end the work day!!)
I had lots of favorite work activities this week.
- I went to the container store to get some magazine organizers (you put me in a store full of stuff that helps organize and I am a happy girl! Maybe one of my favorite stores ever, definitely on the top 5 with Nordstrom and Target - definitely.)
- I mailed some Sorel boots to Jillian Harris (Sorel is one of the clients JulieAnna works on - she freelances for my old agency actually! Which is kind of fun!! I only worked on Sorel a little bit when I was there but it's a client I know a lot about, and funny to be back working with them a tiny bit!) Anyway - Jillian...remember her? Bachelorette? I fed-ex'd the boots to her home address in Canada!
- Then Austin (one of the girls that works for JulieAnna) had to get a creative mailer out this week...already time to start working on those Holiday gift guides (early I know! but that's how it works with magazines...they close those things so early!) But I wrapped up a bunch of these!! Baby bogs...aren't they so cute!? And we sent to a bunch of editors...
- I've also been on a mission to locate the contact info for all of the wardrobe designers for all the TV shows this fall. You know, like Modern Family, Gossip Girl, Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23, Suburgatory, Raising Hope ...yada yada. We have a bunch of pitching to do to them starting this week - so if you know anyone that costumes the cast of any shows I'm down for any insider scoop.
Other things from the week.
I went to dinner Thursday night at Ken's Artisan Pizza. AMAZING. If you love pizza, go here. ASAP. It's right down by my old high school - Central Catholic. 28th & Starkish...well between Stark and Burnside. Here are some pictures.
I'm even a sucker for the opening disney intro that they always play. It's just so magical!!
Now here's to hoping that the weather remembers that it's summer time, not winter, and that we like the sun this time of year, not the rain.
