Everyone knows that this week is the week of holiday parties if you work the office life as I do. This week is filled with 5.. count them 5 different holiday parties. This blog is just to talk about the first 3 because the last 2 are going to be the real doozies.
Now dont get me wrong.. I absolutely looove Christmas parties, its a time where everyone just gets to hang out and talk as people and not as coworkers. That doesnt get to happen often. On Monday, we did our annual card signing party in which everyone in our office sits down and hand signs about 150 cards that go to various people around the University. Its always a good time and by the end of it your messages of "happy holidays! Love, Mackenzie Farone" widdle down to "M. Farone" because you just get sick of writing it over and over again.. but of course what holiday signing party would be complete without food? So, there was a huge box of assorted cookies from Einsteins.
|Imagine these two cookies plus 10 more|
|Here is the group talking and having lunch.. Great group of people!|
|This is just the center table in one room.. there were about 6 other tables and another room full|
|This was the 2nd room and my attempt to get a shot of the choc fountain.. way too many people|
|Me, Jordan and Pam from my office.. I look like Im squinting!|
Tonight is a cookie/dessert party with some of my amazing girlfriends which I am really looking forward to! and tomorrow is our actual office christmas party which is at Bucca di Beppo and is a lot of italian food all served family style. I have survived the first half of the week by keeping portions small and exercising every day.. Its all you can do. Dont deprive yourself of something you want but dont overindulge either I guess will be my motto for the rest of the week.
More pictures to come!..
