Just a dream

[30 for 30: Outfit 17]
Sweater: Old Navy
Shirt: Nordstrom
Jeans: AG (hand-me-downs)
Boots: Steve Madden
Belt: Forever 21

I had a scary dream last night. Don't worry, it's not that kind of scary. I guess I was thinking a lot yesterday about what my co-workers would say to me if they knew I had a blog where I liked to post photos of myself.

In my dream, my manager pulled me aside, and told me that he saw a link to my blog via twitter, and read all my blog posts. He told me that it was a problem to have me blogging, because it distracted me from work. There is a section in our employee agreement (true, not just dream stuff) about blogging, and how you shouldn't talk crap about the company or co-workers on your blog, and just stuff like that, and he said that my blog violates the company policy (wakey-time interjection: It doesn't really... I hope).

I was embarrassed, and he told me that he'd talk to the board members about my blogging behavior and see what they said. So, at the board meeting, they all sat down and read my blog on the big gigantic presentation screen, and analyzed my content and pictures. After the meeting, my manager told me that the board decided that I needed to I shut down my blog, or else I would be fired.

Isn't that horrible?!! I was upset when I woke up this morning, being like, "sad, I don't have a blog anymore." Lucky for you, it was just a dream.

And I also dreamed/dreamt(?) that I happened to sit next to Jen on the bus, and was like, "HEY! I KNOW YOU!" and then I totally missed my bus stop.

The end.

  1. wow, that is a bad dream!! we have a very similar company policy about blogs and although i've never dreamed about my blog being shown to the company board, i have been somewhat paranoid about co-workers finding out about the blog. but since i don't blog about anything work related, i think i'm in the clear. but still. it'd be weird...

    and i love how you belted the sweater and those jeans look great on you!

    cute and little

  2. lol, how funny (but scary!). None of my real life friends know about the blog - I actually think my Mom now reads it but hasn't said anything. Awk-ward!

  3. Scary dream! My husband mentioned his old company on a blog once (while he was still working for them) and got mildly reprimanded. Companies gotsta protect their images, I guess. But I find myself being nervous that random friends and family members will start reading and I'll say something that will bother them ... lots to worry about. We bloggers are gutsy folks! =)

  5. Oh my goodness, that is a bad dream. I sometimes think about the whole blog vs. work thing, I know better than to outwardly dis my career but sometimes I make little silly comments, like "yay... no work for 2 days!" and when I go back and read my posts later, I think... what if they considered that me trashing my job... yikes!

    BTW, your sweater is awesome, and I love those boots, really cute outfit!

  6. Gah that's a scary dream! I do try to not talk at all about work on twitter or blog about it but man when you're there for 8 hours a day it's a little difficult isn't it?

    That's so funny that you ended up sitting next to Jen - had you ever met before?

    I love your outfit - totally something I would wear!

  8. Your hair looks sooo pretty today, Kimmie.

    Don't they say you dream about what's on your mind the most? I think it's time to leave work at work, but think about your blog as much as you want :)

  11. I had a dream the other night that a kid came up to me at a very crowded event and told me that his mom was smoking in the corner and that I had to shut the event down because she was breaking a big rule. SO WEIRD. I called her out, too. She was mad.

  12. I agreed with Cee, your hair looks so pretty today. What a scary dream! It would be sad if I am not able to blog again. Thank goodness it was just a dream. Have a great weekend!

  13. HA! That IS a nightmare! Also, your hair looks pretty enough to pet. For reals. Shiny! I'm glad it was just a dream; the internet sure would miss your face. :)

  14. I can't figure out where you are in this picture and it's driving me crazy. You'll have to put your location in your caption just for me from now on.

  15. That is a terrible dream! As far as I know, my company has no policy on blogging, but I'm fairly certain I'd die of embarrassment if any coworkers actually found my blog. Ack. I can't even think of such a thing!

    Love the sideswept bangs you're wearing here. So pretty on you, Kimmie!

  16. I would have never thought of belting that type of sweater but it works. :) You look very nice.

  17. My WORST nightmare. I can't imagine what I would do if someone found my blog from work. Or even if a friend of family found it. I would be mortified! I'm glad it was just a dream for you.
    That sweater is a dream. Beautiful.

  18. oh my gosh, that is a real nightmare of mine, too! I mean, I write nothing but good stuff about my work, but I work in HR, and our policy is that you can't say anything, mean or not, about our organization (since it's a tax supported non-profit we don't want anyone to ruffle any feathers). I'm SO worried someone will find out - yesterday my boss drove right by me when I was taking my pictures, and I think I ducked! haha!

  19. Your dream was hilarious (awful, but hilarious) I was laughing so hard at the part where they are reading it on a big screen that Jack made me tell him all about it.

    I am in love with the sweater. It just seems like the type of sweater that would make your dreams come true!

  20. Ugh! That's one of my most terrifying nightmares - that work will find out about my blog and I'll be punished. Shudder. I'm glad it was just a dream, because I love checking in to see what you're up to! :)

  21. That is a terrible dream! But you've never said anything bad about who you work with or your company so you should be just fine even if anyone stumbles across it. (they will probably just become avid followers :)

    As always you look adorable!

  24. what a stressful dream! I hate dreams like that. The ones that could be real so they're that much more stressful. My company has a blogging policy too, but as long as I'm not blogging about my company or anything that directly relates to my job, I'm clear!

  25. To protect your credit standing, going from bad to worse and also the only choice is never to make pay day uk shots across the bow -
    in truth, the 2 things reported by the news media as
    types of how away from control the mayor is are in fact proof of how
    clever he could be in playing hardball politics.
