Stella & Dot


I have to admit that I am a huge fan of naming your pets by human names.

Why?

Here is a perfect example that happened at work today:

Me to my friend Samantha (co-worker who travels to Pittsburgh during the week  she’s a contractor): “Here’s a random question for you – since Charlie is in your room during the day, will they still clean the room?”

Sam: “I’m not really sure, I don’t typically get the room cleaned since I’m only here a few days during the week so I just collect the points.”

Other co-worker Tim: “Yeah, I’m the same way. I don’t like people in my room anyway. How does he like it in Pittsburgh.”

Sam: “He seems to like it okay – he wishes there was more grass though.”

Tim: “Well he could always walk up to the Point.”

Sam: “I’d rather not go that far in the dark though.”

Tim: “He’s a grown man! Tell him just to walk over there!”

Me – now cracking up because I saw where this was going: “No he’s not! Charlie is her dog!!!”
This is Charlie - so adorable!!!

Tim: “Ohhhh! I thought it was her husband! That explains why he wanted more grass and wouldn’t walk to the Point alone!”

Sam and Charlie - aren't they the cutest!?!?! Love her!

Sam: “No, Charlie is my dog, Brian is my husband.”   

Maybe you had to be there, but I thought it was hysterical - and mostly because I knew how this was going to play out.







And since we are talking about names today there are a few more that I would like to throw out there – Stella & Dot. http://www.stelladot.com/

 This is a very fun jewelry and accessories company that all of my fashionable ladies need to check out! (And guys with fashionable ladies – you know Valentine’s Day is coming up quickly!)
Stella & Dot - Tribute Bracelet with a few other Stella & Dot bracelets: 20% of each bracelet sold goes to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation         Stella & Dot - Tribute Bracelet (and some other Stella & Dot braclets): 20% of each bracelet sold goes to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation
“We get great joy out of designing irresistible jewelry. And yet, jewelry is just the tangible expression of something much greater we are creating. We have a vision of the world where STRONG WOMEN LIVE BOLD and joyful lives. They know what they want and they work for it. They inspire each other. Passion and joy are their best accessories.”

How great are they!?

They are very socially responsible in addition to having a ton of very cute jewelry.
“We believe in supporting and advancing women throughout the world.”
“We strive to build an equitable and empowered work force.”
“We strive to bring about positive social change by working with partners who provide fair and decent working conditions.”

They have created the Tribute Bracelet and they donated 20% of every bracelet sold to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

“Stella & Dot, a global fashion accessories brand and rapidly growing social selling company has raised $123,394 for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation® (BCRF) as a result of sales of over 17,000 signature Tribute Bracelets. In recognition of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Stella & Dot Tribute Bracelet was introduced at the beginning of October, providing 20% of every bracelet sold to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation®”.

I absolutely love the Tribute Bracelet – I already have told my husband about it when he asked for ideas for Valentine’s Day. I am more than happy to receive jewelry for any occasion – and even happier to receive it knowing that the purchase went towards something so great too!
