so...i go back to bebe on monday and see that my "striperella" shoes are now on sale for 50% off!! me, being the former express sales associate, think that perhaps bebe has a price adjustment policy like express does (10 days with receipt). so....i ask the manager and she says they normally cannot do that, but if i brought my receipt in the next day (she was working from 8-5) that she would do it for me. i am out at a luncheon the next day with my cool boss....and tell him about it, so of course him being so cool tells me that we can stop by. so i walk in and find brandi (the manager from the previous day) and she begins the transaction. she stops and looks nervous. and i can tell she has something she wants to say, but fears i may just want to punch her in the face. she then informs me that the shoes are NOT infact 50%. it was only the bottom shelf. WHAT??!!! i had shown her the shoes the day before and she was cool with it!! i of course did not get mad or anything...just obviously let down. she thought for a moment and then told me that she would go ahead and honor the discount anyway bc i had come all the way back. yeaahhhh girl!! soooo rad. bebe at main place mall has a new number one fan - ME!!!

i bought these.

and i am TOTALLY obsessed with them. my boss likes to call them "striperella" shoes, but i think they are HOT and AWESOME. and pretty comfortable (believe it or not). i got them at bebe. and maybe splurged a little. side note - i am approximately 6'1" while wearing them. LOVE being a girl.

bff photo shoot - thank you mike cunningham.

sleep in.

when i first started working, our morning meeting was at 9 am. that soon changed to 8:30 and even though it was just half an hour kills me. seriously. but then, something magical happened this week!! our stand-up meeting has returned to 9 am! after 4 months of suffering, i seriously couldnt be happier. anyone who knows me, knows that i absolutely HATE waking up in the morning - it is the worst part of the day. i now bless this extra half hour - thanks boss.

aloha and mahalo.

i spent last weekend on oahu! it was a bombastic time, considering i got to see some of my favs including hails and company, steph and company and kate and her NEW fiance!! here are a few of the highlights:

me, hails and her little guy conner! he had gotten sooo big since last time i saw him.

my flotation device. i was obsessed with it.

my ONLY purchase from the island. i told the lady at the store that this is something that a nice bf would buy their gf, but since i dont have one i was buying it for myself. :( paid off, bc she gave me 20% off. i am in love with it and feel like an engaged girl staring at it when i walk around. its annoying for people around me, i am sure.

LOVE hails and kate! they were absolute gems for letting me crash! THANKS girls!!

cute wilde family!! i had soooo much fun with them. even when we shared a queen size bed and hailey buffered.

i seriously fell in LOVE with conner while i was there and was really sad to leave him. he is the most calm, happy and loving little boy.

another cute fam on the island! it was such a sweet treat to steph, thomas and ambrose!!

ambrose was a little shy around aunt erin, must be the island. he was DARLING!!

kate's view was beautiful!!

it was soooo great to spend time with one of my besties. it was exactly what i needed. thanks for being such a great friend to me hails! I LOVE YOU!!!! hawaii rules. will have to do that again soon.
