New Digs

As I mentioned in this post my company was moving into a new office building. Well the big move took place last Friday and so far so good. We spent most of last week packing everything up. Since I've only worked here for a year and a half I had the least amount of stuff accumulated so packing/unpacking my desk wasn't too hard. On Friday the movers came and brought everything to our new space.

It's amazing how much nicer our new office is. It's much bigger, layed out better and as I mentioned before, we each have our own offices. I LOVE it! I have a huge window, a lot more space and even my own thermostat which is great since I'm ALWAYS cold and was constantly having to wear sweaters. Now I can make my office as hot or cold as I like.

Not to mention that this building has TWO deli's and a GYM! I cancelled my gym membership a few months ago and I can't wait to start using the treadmill again (did I really just type that?!). Despite the fact that I now have another 10 minutes added to my already 45-60 minute commute I'm happy.

My boss said she would give us each $100 so that we could decorate our offices with plants/pictures etc. Kristian is actually more excited about this than I am and already has ideas of what I should buy. In fact he said to me and I quote "Can I be gay and come decorate your office?" hahaha.

Here are some pictures of my office currently. I definitely need to buy some pictures and plants and spruce this place up a bit.

(I'm now able to have my own filing cabinet which means I don't have to walk to another part of the office to get my old files like I use to)

(My desk won't stay this clean for long)

Not too shabby! I am highly jealous of your personal space.

Sweet! I do enjoy having a filing cabinet within arm's reach. I do have door envy now though! Enjoy!

That's awesome! Congrats on the new office. I have a private cube at my office, but mostly I work from my couch. :-)

That's really awesome! I would love to be given the opportunity to decorate an office. If I had one that is :p Yours looks great! Some pictures would be lovely I think.

Annie said...

very nice lady!! your own office, a gym, a decorating allowance....what more could a girl ask for?! well, besides a man who wants to pretend to be gay to help decorate ;) that is too funny!

Mrs T said...

Sounds like a great boss - $100 to decorate = AWESOME!

Ooh congrats! I am an executive assistant to my boss and his only employee in California. So he comes in and out of the office throughout the day(s) but I am mostly by myself. It's so nice to be able to control the temp in my office and such :) So exciting to be able to decorate. My boss has been promising me that we will move our office one day to closer to my place (it's about 25 minutes away)...we'll see if it ever happens.
