Take Your Wives to Work Day

Going to work can be loads of fun…especially when you are not the one working!

Kevin recently moved offices and the company he works for  is now renting space in a garage/loft/photo studio about an hour away. I’ve been meaning to go visit for quite a while so I jumped at Gina’s offer to go together and have lunch with our husbands one day during the week!

We met for a bowl of ramen at Shalala downtown Mountain View before heading over to the Smart Patients office.

Kevin’s office certainly did not look like much from the outside…just your typical garage…but was oh so charming and had so many little surprises of delight inside!

The garage belongs to photographer Chris Conroy…and I was simply stunned by the beautiful photos that hung on the wall.  Next time I go visit, I hope to meet Chris and maybe get a few pointers from him on how to improve my photography cause his work is simply amazing!


We got the full tour of the photo studio and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity for a photo shoot. So thank you Tom for my portofolio photos…you know what to do if you get tired of Google!

I loved Kevin’s office maybe because it looked nothing like an office. It’s just a fun and interesting place where workers meet to work hard to make a great company!  I like!! The studio/office has quirky creative art all over…from Dismembered Hands and disconnected fire hydrants to toilets posing as electric chairs…love it! So so cool!

We left Smart Patients and set off  to Google to see where Tom goes five days a week!!  I’ve never seen anything like it!  The feeling took me back the first time I went to Disneyland!  The same excitement you feel when you first see Cinderella’s Castle!  Colourful bikes that are used by the everybody who works there are all parked outside the cafeteria while the employees go have lunch at one of their many favourite canteens there.  The chatter and laughter dominates the surroundings making Google for sure, the Happiest Office on Earth!

What a fun day that was!

Gina and I came home both knowing that our husbands are were they want to be!!  And if husbands are happy, we are happy!

  1. So lucky!! That sounds like a fabulous day out with best friends and best husbands ha ha and yes I agree that Google sure got some amazing stuff at their campus and it sounds awesome and stylish where Kevin is working too!! So lovely to see that our hubbies are at a happy place everyday as work is such a major part of their lives 😉

    Thanks for sharing your happy day with us!
