First: February Friday Fabulousness

Happy February, friends.
That title probably couldn't get any more ridiculous, right? Sorry about that. Moving on...

I've decided to write a few things about my week that were fabulous {hence the 'Friday fabulousness'}.

This is the kind of mood that I'm in today.

  • On Monday I got a nasty cold (not so fabulous) and I was stuck at home, sick. After napping for a few hours in the morning, I woke up to said text from my boss:

Side note: he's not stored in my phone as 'Boss', I only changed it for this picture.

Typical me, I instantly think I've done something wrong. He knows that I'm at home sick, what would he need to talk to me about? Why do I need to call him? If I wasn't in trouble, he would ask me via text... right... RIGHT? WRONG.
I actually couldn't have been more wrong - HA! When I called him this is basically how the conversation went:

Hey Faith, how are you feeling?

*Croaks* Oh, I'm good.

Uhhh, you don't sound very good... anyway, I won't keep you on the phone. I just wanted to give you a bit of good news while you're sick.

*perks up* Oh! Okay, what's up?

We'd like to offer you a promotion! It was approved this morning, it is effective February 1st and I wanted to let you know right away.

Uhhhh... are you sure? Seriously?

Mike: *laughs* Yes, I'm sure.

Cue a brief discussion about my new role, we exchange our goodbyes and I assure him that I'll be at the office the next day. Then, this is basically what I did for about five whole minutes:

So, despite the fact that I was sick - Monday was pretty fabulous.

  • Wednesday night I had a much needed catch up session with one of my best friends who lives far away. It was therapeutic, good for the soul, and fabulous.

    This is an accurate depiction of our friendship

  • This week, my colleague Laura {who I photographed Here}, stopped by the office with her gorgeous baby girl {who I photographed at Christmas - session coming soon}. Unfortunately, I was too sick to get close to Laura and Brynn, but I oohed and aww'ed from afar. I've never been a huge baby person, but Brynn is just so cute... she might be my favourite baby.

  • This is my colleague, Janet, snuggling with Brynn. Too freakin' cute

  • I passed 3,000 hits on my blog this week. I know that's not a huge deal for a lot of you bloggers - but considering this blog is only two months old today, and I only have 20 GFC followers, I'm pretty happy with that number. Heck, it's fabulous even.

  • Today I'm only working a 1/2 day. That means I start at 7:30am and I'm off at 11:15am. That's pretty fabulous if I do say so, myself.

That all I've got lovelies. I hope that you all had a fabulous week and have an even more fabulous weekend. See you on Monday!
