Friday Five

Posted on June 16th, 2017

I love the notion of abbreviated “Summer Fridays.”  Meanwhile, I had a meeting until 5:15pm this evening…



Celebrating… two years with Nordstrom with a dorky tourist photo!  I joined Nordstrom marketing on June 16, 2015, and have felt more gratified and supported in my career development here than I could have imagined.  It’s safe to day I drank the kool-aid!  (Speaking of Nordstrom… getting excited for Anniversary!)


Drinking… rosé.  I have alcohol relatively infrequently, but have had several glasses or rosé this season that have left me craving more.  I admit it: the organic marketing of instagrammers everywhere is clearly working on me.


Reading… The 5 Choices: The Path to Extraordinary Productivity.  My team at work has started a book club.  I really enjoy reading professional development books but I 100% recognize that I’m not great at prioritizing them if I’m not guided through it.  This book is particularly helpful in prioritization of work.  As is the case in many workplace environments, I feel like I am asked to do way more than I am realistically able to do, but being empowered to decide how best to drive impact is so important.


Reminiscing… about our magical weekend in Banff as I read Lesley’s post on her recent solo Canadian trip.  Even before we went, I knew I would want to return without snow on the ground, and this definitely confirms that.  If you’re not already following her, by the way, you should– although be warned, it will incite wanderlust!


Singing… showtunes.  Between watching the Tonys last weekend and moving to New York, the musical theatre capital of the world, my love for musicals is flaring up this week.  I can’t decide what show I want to see first, although I would really love to see Sara Bareilles before she leaves Waitress.


I’m gearing up for our last weekend in Seattle, armed and ready with a to do list a mile long!
