Workin' that 9-5 baby

OK. girls with big girl jobs raise your hands?? I am not gonna lie, it took some serious adjustment for me after coming off the "nanny to the fabulous" lifestyle I was living, but hey we all have to do it right? I love my job, I really do. I work for a great company, I LOVE my boss, and I love the girls I work with. I mean seriously, you spend more time at work than you do with your family and friends. (This is a whole 'nother point for another day, but for now the focus is office decor.) I mean seriously, if you are going to spend 40+ hours somewhere a week don't you want to enjoy it, and like your surroundings?

Absolutely you do.

I am pretty sure when I walked in with a glue gun and grosgrain ribbon in hand the second day on the job those two and a half years ago, people stared. But hey, who is sittin' pretty now in her posh little cubie? That's right, LouLou is. And you know, slowly but surely, others started to beautify their work spaces as well.

So I thought today I would snap some pics for you of where I spend most of my time! My little cubie! I wrote this a week ago actually after work one day, but I have been so busy I haven't been able to post it. I can't stand to have a messy desk, and I promise (ask anyone!) most of the time, there is nothing out of place. I HATE clutter, and will literally hide it from myself if I have to. Anyway, enjoy!

PS I promise I have not been ignoring any of you! I have just been way busy, but I am not traveling this weekend- I plan to relax and respond to emails! haha. Love you all!


That's all I got girls!

You make me so happy. Come back already. But your desk rocks, seriously this is pure enjoyment. What is in the OCD binder? I need one.

OM freaking G! I'm totally in awe of your workspace! It looks completely different from mine; that's for sure . . . I'm a teacher who is swamped by a bazillion papers to grade, "junk mail" that I get in my box, various files, etc., random sticky notes of kids' numbers . . . I am amazed by the order and sanity of your desk!

Can I tell you though that you have honestly inspired me to go into work tomorrow and organize my desk? Seriously! If I manage to do it, I will take pics for you. :)

According to Ashley said...

Oh my LORDY, that is an amazing workspace!! You should see my teacher desk at school. It is always a DISASTER ZONE because I'd rather be teaching or planning than cleaning off my desk. You would be ashamed.

Hope you've had a great day girl!

"Hello, PinkLouLou Designs? Yes, I'd like to set up an appointment pronto for some office beautification." I love your space and even more than that, completely love that you have a pair of tweezers in your desk drawer. I have them in my car, always at arm's length. Just sayin' :)

You are too cute!! Your workspace looks much more cute and festive than mine. Mine needs a makeover! Hmm...maybe you should start a side business that involves making over people's workspace? :)

PinkSass said...

Ahhhh you are so organized it freaks me out. ;)

TeachingInHeels said...

Adorable!! I'm completely in love with the personal touches you have in your little box at work :) I'm a teacher, so my entire room is decorated "my way", but I so love the idea of working in a space you like...

Jess said...

Thank you for giving me the incentive that my desk needs a makeover haha. I love that you have a Marilyn Monroe picture hanging up AND that you have a pink bow on your computer! LOVE that lamp too! Perfect!!

Katherine said...

Jessica said...

Okay, I totally need a lamp on my desk now. And I'll be asking for a mini chi for Christmas!

Polish and Pearls said...

Love the pink bow on your computer! I definitely need to spruce up my workspace :(

Adrienne said...

Haha I love that you brought a hot glue gun into work with you on the second day! That is fantastic - and totally worth it! :) This totally makes me want to dress up my office now, it suddenly seems so dull! haha OH, and I absolutely have snacks, Clorox wipes, and cough drops tucked away in a bottom drawer! lol

Jenn @ West Sac Honey said...

Ha love the travel chi that's funny I've thought about bringing mine. I want a cute desk now mine is just blah.

sugar said...

So cute! I wish they'd allow me to gussy, did I just say gussy? Yes, yes I did. Anyways....they won't allow personal touches where I work : (

My Running Ambition said...

SO jealous of your cute work spot!! I put up one lone picture of the pup and boyfriend, and boss man told me to take it down :( And you have a window!! Count your blessings, haha ill show you a picture of my grey cube and you will want to die...awful!

Whitney said...

I still haven't decorated my office. I've been there such August. I've been wanting to put up picture frames and hang stuff on the walls, but I've been soooo incredibly busy and haven't got the chance. A lot of times I do my work from home :\

Mighty Burns said...

This is too cute. I just love your posts lol. In the short time that I had a cube to call home, I also deced my halls with pictures, a cute lamp, and was a nut about having all my terms organized on color coded post it notes! Love my post its!

Sara L. said...
