This Week At The Pink House | May 28th, 2021

Hello Friends! Happy Friday!

It has been a few weeks since our last Pink House update and I'm so excited to be chatting with you.

First I want to answer the most common question we get after these check in posts which is "why is it called the pink house?"

It's funny because the Pink House is not actually pink like some of you think it is. The exterior of our warehouse is a light tan brick with hideous orange signage! Haha - clearly not my first choice but obviously you don't get a say in that type of stuff when you're just leasing ;)

Back in July 2020 we upgraded from the first IPC office to the current warehouse we are in now. During the first week the team was in the new space, we kept going back and forth about what we should nickname our new home. Some of the contenders where the Planner Palace, Pink Palace, and many more that are too embarrassing to share! Haha

We had a white board full of name suggestions from the team and after about a week of debate we settled on the Pink House. We have one pink wall and a pink refrigerator, but that's about it. Pink isn't even my favorite color. It's just a color that has stuck with IPC's identity and we are very fond of it here internally. I always say "pink is a lifestyle, not a color" haha.

Hotter Than The Hinges Of Hell

I'm going to keep this short, but on Monday our HVAC system went down. And it was 80 degrees in the warehouse... We couldn't get it repaired until the following day, but let's just say the heat brings out the worst in me.. not to mention, that the HVAC in my home was being repaired at the same time. So it was hot at work and hot when I got home and I was grumpy. Luckily my mother lives 10 minutes away so I camped out there until my home returned to a decent temperature.
