A Little British

Although I had been to London many times before working for a British company and many of my favorite shows are 'British comedies,' there were many things I never thought about! Part of my job is to prepare the slide decks for when the executives visit. Well, this is a busy week.... we have a Group Vice-President (who is a woman and was named Veuve Clicquot's woman of the year a few years back) and our new CEO. He just came in office a few weeks ago. Like I said, there are many things to remember:
  1. There is no 'z' in the alphabet, only an s -->optimize is optimise
  2. Favor is spelled 'favour'
  3. Process, is said is if the 'Pro' was a stand alone word followed by the 'cess.' Progress is the same way!

The list could go on, but you get my drift! Have you ever seen the show 'Keeping Up Appearances' with Hyacinth Bucket? You would think to say it bucket, but she prefers it to sound like bouquet!

Randomness, yes I know! But, it was something I thought about today as putting together the slide decks!

I hope everyone has had a great day! I just can't believe we are already to mid-May! Tomorrow, I am going to Nordstrom's to hear Trish McEvoy, herself, speak in person and talk about make-up, etc!

See you tomorrow!

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day

I want to wish everyone, including my mother and mother-in-law, a happy mother's day!!! This morning, I was greeted by Billy & Amber and a wonderful mother's day gift of new golf shirts - along with a Diet Coke!!

Mothers come in many fashions.... sometimes, we are true mothers by way of a biological child or an adopted child, we might have a pet that we really feel like we are their mother (after all, we nurture and feed them just as we would a child), or we might be a 'bonus mother' for a step-child.

As I was thinking about what a mother really is, the following came to mind:

M - Many band-aids are in her purse, as she is always there to lend aid
O - Our #1 cheerleader, even when we feel there are none
T - Thankless job at times, seeing her child succeed is many thanks enough
H - Hours of prayer & love (sometimes tears) are spent on her precious child
E - Every time we call, she always reminds us how much she loves us
R - Raises & teaches her children to remember that nothing is impossible!

I hope everyone has a fabulous day and happy mother's day!!!
