Bay Horse Cafe to celebrate 40 years.

This afternoon the office closed a little early to walk down to Bay Horse Cafe

We paused to celebrate our CEO and fearless leader, Doug Studer’s 40th-anniversary of work at Deskey…

Forty years with one company is a very momentous achievement…

SURPRISE!

It was a fun afternoon celebrating an incredible career achievement. And Bay Horse Cafe is a great little place. I can’t wait to head back soon for another beer and maybe grab some lunch from Bay Horse sometime soon. 😀🎂🍻❤️

It was the oddest thing.

The oddest thing that happened to me today. An entire set of pins we made for our wedding guests in Jamaica showed up my mailbox at the office…

Kinda odd, right? Taken with Instagram. #gtfjamaica2016 

Seen and noted.

Somehow Minions fruit snacks showed up in the office. I managed to snag one pack for me and one to take home to Genifer…

They were so good. I’m definitely going to have to keep an eye out for those so we can have some more. YUM! 😀👀❤️

Congratulations, Doug!

This week we celebrated the work anniversary of our CEO. He’s been with Deskey for the last 40 years…

Congratulations, Doug! 😀🥂❤️

Thank you, Deskey!

We got this is the mail today from my work…

That was so nice of them. Thank you, Deskey.

Crisis averted.

I thought I had lost my Polaroid CUBE. I hadn’t been able to locate it for about a week. I’m usually very good with my electronicals and every day carry items, and very rarely do I misplace them. But I was really beginning to think my little CUBE was a goner. I inadvertently looked behind my computer monitor at work today and there it was…

I’m a ding dong. I wonder how long it’s been back there? 😀📷❤️

Donald Deskey on CBS Sunday Morning.

Our company’s namesake, Donald Deskey was featured on CBS Sunday Morning

“Sunday Morning” looks back at the career of Donald Deskey, an advertising man, and designer behind New York City’s Art Deco showcase (and of many consumer products), who died on April 29, 1989 at the age of 94.

And via the Deskey website…

Donald Deskey pioneered the idea that design shapes modern life. He designed Radio City Music Hall and helped reinvent the humble chair. When he saw the need for clarity in the supermarket, he helped invent modern branding. By building from core shared values, he created enduring brands that inspire us to this day.
We are his people.

And I’m proud to call myself one of his people. 😀👍❤️

My 5-year anniversary lunch.

There was a lunch at Arnold’s to celebrate my 5-year anniversary today. I had a burger and a Braxton Graeter’s Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip Milk Stout

It’s nice to feel appreciated. 😀🍔🖐️🍾❤️

Celebrating big wins.

We celebrated a big win this afternoon at Deskey…

Taken with Instagram. 😀🍾❤️

Bakersfield Taco Bar.

An incredible taco bar from Bakersfield showed up in one of the conference rooms at work today. There were big tubs of short rib and pollo rojo and Bakersfield queso…

Look at all that delicious Bakersfield salsa…

And of course, there were tubs of Bakersfield’s famous guacamole…

It made for a very unexpected but pretty terrific lunch…

I wish stuff like this would show up in the office every day. 😀🌮❤️
