ego lifting

so my internship today was really great!  i spent the majority of the day searching for the perfect pieces of artwork (paintings, sculptures, etc) for one project.  apparently THE designer liked a lot of what i picked enough to use for other projects as well. yay! oh and THE designer's new venture (that i mentioned a while back) is launching very soon so there is a lot of excitement and buzz in the office (and in lots of national magazines as well) these days, which is pretty awesome... i think it's a pretty cool time to be working there....

recently with my fab bedroom painting project i was reminded of how much i love going to my local home depot store.... yeah, sure they have great products at great prices and all that... but i have to say one of the really great things about visiting home depot when you're a gal is that the guys there (both the ones working there and the straight male customers) are so very helpful to us gals...  and it is pretty great for the ego! especially when living in los angeles, the land of so many amazingly beautiful people (some almost other worldly!) you kind of feel not so cute sometimes because you may not be six feet tall and a size zero...  but when you visit home depot you are treated like the cute gal you always knew you were... yeah, i believe in women's lib and all that.... and i am an independent woman (cue destiny's child!) but i still like being treated like a lady and the boys at home depot know how to... so, for all of you gals lookin' for a little ego boost, i highly recommend a visit to your local home improvement store... 

looking forward to the weekend! going to see dolly parton at the hollywood bowl tomorrow night and got a cheap cowboy hat from target just for the occasion! i hope i can find the time to bedazzle it before the show.....

until next time!
