THE INTERN DIARIES: WEEK 7
Week 7 already? Goodness, where has the time gone? I guess the old saying "time flies when you're having fun" is true. Between custom jobs, manning Parish, yummy sweet treats, and baby shopping; there is never a dull moment around here. Now that we know Amanda is having a boy, the baby shopping and nursery planning has begun. Sometimes I hear her on the phone with a sales rep and think to myself "we don't need that", and then it dawns on me. It's the nursery!!! No one says anything about it, of course, because we are all SO excited for her.
We did have a rather productive week with two installs. Intern Rachael and I are taking turns going to the installs so we can both get a behind the scenes look. I got some pictures from Rachael on her install day of the super cute movers and an even cuter little puppy. I think it's safe to say that Lucy was a jealous intern.

But Amanda made this not so happy intern very happy when she brought back a sweet treat to the studio. We all have a sweet tooth around here. If it isn't candy, it's baked goods. If it isn't baked goods, it's ice cream. Either way, we get our sweet treat fix. I HIGHLY recommend the Riddles bag of Skittles. They're kind of like mystery flavors, the color doesn't match the flavor. But, we cracked the code! Just in case you were wondering, here's what we determined. Like I said, it was a productive week.

I always enjoy going on the installs. It's fun to see the final product of the projects you've been working on for so long. You finally get to see the nice, pretty stuff put in the house. And you get to see it actually being used and lived on. At my install, I witnessed the client enjoying her new furniture and her cute son enjoying the box it came in. He was so funny, and SO excited about it.

Seriously, how fun does that look?![/caption]
If you've been trying to call the studio lately and it seems like its taking a while to answer, its because we have a phone hog. There are times we hear the phone ringing and we all look at each other trying to determine who will answer. Well, no one does because no one has a phone on their desk...except Amanda. And she has all 4!!! She really loves talking to the clients.

You guys definitely need to come by and check the store out. I know Rachael mentioned the big re-arrange last week, but we've even received more new stuff since then. We love our design books around here, and we just got a new shipment of them. We are obsessed! Come check them out!

The interns, as well as the other ladies, will be out of the office for the latter part of next week so there won't be a week 8 Intern Diaries. I know you all are so sad about that, but it's 4th of July week! That's exciting enough without The Intern Diaries. You will hear from us again in 2 weeks! I hope everyone has a safe and happy 4th!!
