So you liked the peppermint bark, huh?
Me too. Although I will say- I only had one piece of it before sending it all off and bringing some to work. This week, my heart was mainly with the samoas…
Last night my work’s Holiday Party.
Come along for the ride…
We got out of work a little early to go get ready at Jaime’s house because she was sober driving (helloooooo baby bump) and I also wanted to say hello to two of my favorite ladies:I’ve most likely stated it before, but I’m not really a pet person right now. I’m still learning how to keep plants alive, and don’t really have the time or money right now. For the time being, I’ll settle for being a runner-up “mom” for Princess and Hazel. If you remember, I took care of these two little things last April for two weeks and we had a blast.Hazel and I are best buds. Jaime still gives me a hard time when Hazel flips out as soon as I walk into the door.
What can I say? I’m like the crazy aunt who spoils the kids.
After getting ready (aka changing into jeans), we went to Lucky Strike downtown to celebrate with two of our other offices. Food, more food, wine and beer, more food…
I don’t care what anyone says, fried mac and cheese takes any party to the next level.
Oh… and there was bowling. Which means my right thumb nail was torn to shit right away. I haven’t been bowling since last February, so my excuse is that I was VERY out of practice.Obviously, my form needs work. Or maybe I’m just setting people up for the next time when I kick ass at bowling?
I’m a hustler, baby…It was a lot of fun (HUGE sigh of relief since I’ve spent a lot of work hours planning). The night ended decently early (hi- it’s Thursday and I still have to be at work at 9:00 this morning), so I didn’t wake up too tired or hungover.
Sometimes I’m a good girl like that. And I had plans to get up and do my last day of trying to fit in a workout before work to round off my “workout every morning this week”.
My bed was just so comfy.
But 4 out of 5 isn’t bad.
I’ll also have coffee instead of green tea if I want. Usually I don’t drink coffee until I get to the office. So there’s no one to blame but myself when I hit that “wired” feeling by about 11:00.
Do you have work-related holiday parties? Our company parties used to be MUCH different (think black cocktail dress and 4-course dinners). But the last few years (stupid economy) have been pretty rough. We’re lucky to be having a party of any sort. And that is fine- I think last year’s potluck and this year’s bowling outting make for a fun, laid-back atmosphere that allows for easier conversation.
Anyhoo… it’s FRIDAY!
Time for my happy dance. Oh crap… the caffeine overload is already kicking in…
