Just a quick update from LA :)  
I'm here again! :) It seems like Mark & I were just here - in fact the room I got is right next door to the one Mark & I had in January. :) Thankfully the flight over last night was nice and relaxing (though it was much more crowded than I expected!) I didn't realize that President's Day weekend was such a busy travel time. :)

Got some great website news!! My co-worker called me this morning and said that she spoke with her husband and showed him my proposal and they liked it - they want me to start work on their site as soon as possible! :) I'm so excited because I have a lot of ideas that'll hopefully help them market their portrait studio. :D I was working on a couple of them on the plane ride over - hopefully by the time I go home I'll be able to show her at least two different layouts. :) Not only does it make me happy because I really think that I'll be able to help them save some money, but this is the very first paid website job that I booked! :)

And because everyone's doing it... Please, help me out on this if you can - I'm interested in reading your replies. :)


Thanks so much in advance for participating! :)

Tonight I'm meeting lindasings for dinner (woo hoo for trying great eating places like Roscoe's House of Chicken & Waffles!! I've always wanted to go there!) :) and then we're seeing Kevin in It Came From Beyond. :) Very excited to see Linda as she and I didn't really get to spend any time together on my last visit to LA. Should be a wonderful evening. :) I'm off to get ready - I'm going to the market (yay for the mini kitchenette in my hotel room!) to buy my meals for the week (this is a "save all the money I can" trip.) :) Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!! :) Big *HUGS* to you all. :)

So you're seeing it twice?

If you want to "save all the money you can", would you rather meet at our house for lunch before the show tomorrow? We can fix lunch there for much, much less. I can easily provide you directions (I forget if you are staying near LAX or BUR, but either can be done). I'm at the office today if you want to coordinate: 310 336 8228.

Actually, I'm seeing it three times... :} *Sheepish smile* I always try to make the most of my trips out here and see the shows I want to see more than once. :)

It's SO thoughtful of you to ask about lunch at your house!! Thanks, Daniel!! I think going to the Eclectic Cafe would be wonderful, though - I've been really looking forward to it. :) Plus, the menu there looks really reasonable. :D I look forward to seeing you all tomorrow!! :D

Why is everyone doing this Johari Windows? :P
Anyhoo, I participated in it too.

I'm so happy for you on that FIRST paying job doing a website. It's nice to do something that you love and at the same time, getting paid too. Remember to show us your designs!!

Oh, what is the link for yours? I don't think I filled yours out yet!

I'm so happy to be helping my co-worker's husband! Hopefully they'll like my ideas. :) I will definitely put up links to my sample pages as soon as they're done. :D Thanks so much for your comment, Angela - *HUGS*

I didn't create anything for me. What I meant when I said I participated...I participated in choosing 5-positive things about you. LOL!!!

Oh! I see! :) You should create one for yourself, I'd love to fill it out. :D

Glad to hear that you had a relaxing flight. :) And that are really great website news - I too would like to see your design.

Wish you a wonderful time in LA, Sheri! :)

Big *hugs* to you. :)

Thanks, Sabine! :) I'll definitely be posting links to my sample pages once I can finish them. :) Thanks for asking about them. :)

And so far it's been a wonderful trip!! (Aside from all the horrible rain and traffic!) ;)

Big *HUGS* to you! :D

I'm glad your trip was nice. :) I hope you have a great time while you're here! I'm sure you will. :D I'm sorry I didn't plan a meet up. It would have been nice to see you. :) Next time for sure! :D

I'm so happy that they liked your proposal! How exciting!!! :D How could they not though, you do such fabulous work!

Have a good time in LA my friend! *hug*
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on February 18th, 2006 09:43 am (UTC)
Next time we'll have to get together! :) It's been too long since I've seen you!!

And I'm so excited about the website!! Mainly I'm excited because I hope I'll be able to offer them a better price than what they're currently paying. What a rip-off their other service was. :P

Thanks so much, Carrie! Please be careful on the roads this weekend! It's so awful out there! *HUGS*
