Round two was probably the biggest Christmas party of the entire year. My office Christmas Party. I love this day because its a time to be able to sit down and hang out with your co workers as friends instead of the professionalism of working together.
The party was supposed to start at noon but I feel like everyone just considered it a day to talk to each other about holiday plans and what not. When I came in there was a very nice card and bag hanging on my door handle. It was from my boss.. (I am very lucky to work in a place where every boss Ive had has been absolutely amazing) and inside the bag was this..

At noon, we boarded a shuttle to take us over to Station Square because we were going to eat family style at one of my favorite places to eat in Pittsburgh.. BUCCA DI BEPPO. I love this place.. the location I always ago to is in Station Square.. if you havent been there please go! Its so interesting in there and plus they have the most amazing Italian food.
Everyone ordered a drink and since everyone else was ordering wine.. I decided to follow suit even though it felt very strange being that it was early in the day and these were my coworkers.. I ordered a Pinot Grigio which unfortunately they didnt have so I substituted in some Savignon Blanc : )
|Here is everyone sitting and eating up a storm!|
We got on the shuttle to head back to the homestead and start our Secret Santa party which of course consisted of more food. We had cookies, I brought some of the cookies from our cookie exchange the night before, there were Smiley cookies (yep from eatin park!), peppermint bark, mint chocolate cookies, caramel brownies, peanut butter and chocolate and of course peanut butter blossoms.
|This is my boss opening her gift.|
I simply love this time of year.. Happy Holidays everyone! : )
