Last night I was feeling not so motivated – I had told my friend, KM, that I would go to an Emerging Leaders happy hour with her, but I kinda wanted to bail. I tried to call her – but got put into voicemail (I thought it would be lame to bail via voicemail). When I finally did get a hold of her, she was shutting down her computer, saying what bad reception she gets on the 19th floor, getting ready to come pick me up… so clearly I was at the point of no return..
We had a great time! It was so nice getting to hang out with her a bit one-on-one, as she seems to be a really awesome gal. I really like her and hope that we can become really great friends. And I saw a few folks that I knew so it was nice to say hi to them all. And we got to check out a new (to me, at least) place downtown – Venue Houston. It was super swanky and trendy. I bet it might be fun to go there with a big group of gals to dance!
(Photo above from ENVY magazine, from a different event) Aren’t we just too cute?! and KM really is – she is a tall, thin blond – all the guys are the happy hour were definitely checking her out!
Anyway, the lesson learned to me is as long as you are with good company – a good time will be had. So true – so true.
