not to overload you all with too much cuteness in two days, but we have a new pup in the home office and she is too cute not to share. this is grizzly bear, a baby boston terrier who belongs to our senior sweater designer – welcome to the fp pup family!
as you guys know we have lots of dogs running around our office, but no cats! they are not allowed, because having cats here would also involve kitty litter. but we had a special visitor today who was being photographed for something coming up – she belongs to our operations coordinator who sits right next to me so i took the chance to ask her some questions. say hello to lily!
Where are you from?
I was born in Villanova, Pennsylvania. My dad came and adopted me as a present for my mom when she graduated from college. Now i live in Philadelphia with my mom and dad!
What are your favorite hobbies?
I really like to chase feathers and play hide and seek, and I like to kick things that roll, but sometimes I get in big trouble when my mom is cooking eggs. Eggs roll really well until they fall off of the counter. I also like to sleep – I take an afternoon siesta every day. Also, I have a squirrel boyfriend who I like to look at. I sit on the window sill and stare at him, and he stares back at me. We have a forbidden romance.
What is your biggest fear?
I am afraid of dogs. They are bigger than me. I don’t even like when they bark on TV, it makes me nervous.
Tuna is my favorite, but I’ve been eating a lot of chicken flavored Iams lately. It’s pretty delicious. Oh! And I love to chew on plants, like my dad’s bonsai tree.
I like orange because I am orange and orange is the best!
What’s your favorite place in the world?
I have a special pillow called the Princess Pillow that is my favorite – it’s one of my mom’s old throw pillows that is covered with a super soft blanket. I like to sit there and get brushed every day.
How would you describe your personal style?
I am a natural beauty, so I don’t have to try to look fancy. I know I’m gorgeous. If I were a free people girl, I’d be a Ginger. If you got it, flaunt it.
Does it bother you that you’re not allowed to come to our office every day like the dogs?
A little bit, I don’t think it’s fair. Dogs are much louder and smellier than I am. I am so cute and little! But I also don’t really like to be in a car or my pink carrier case, so I am OK with staying home.
How was your experience working with free people today?
I had a good time. At first I was nervous, but once I realized what I had to do, it was a pretty sweet deal. I got to wear a pretty necklace and sit on a pile of scarves and be fed treats. It was like the best day ever.
today our team held a baby shower for our visual display and store design manager – one of the very talented creative ladies behind our incredible stores! as you can imagine, our visual team went all out for her baby shower. they even decorated a golf cart that they drove straight up to her desk to pick her up and drive her over to the outdoor location where the shower was set up! here are some photos from the celebration.
this is maisy, an adorable little puggle (mix of a pug and beagle) – one of my absolute favorite kinds of dogs. our office coordinator is dog-sitting for her, and according to maisy’s schedule, in between meals she must sleep and play. sounds good to me…
we love our new building… but it has lots and lots of really big windows and sometimes the sun gets a little intense. so we’ve come up with some ways to block the sun- some practical, some… well just see for yourselves…
