"The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear!" - Buddy the Elf
Last night was my office holiday party. My colleagues and I celebrated together with loud, enthusiastic karaoke singing! Hilarious headwear, tasty food, and unlimited drinks helped us to be merry, as well.
It is always telling to spend time with work buddies outside of the office and singing duets together may be the best way to build that sprit of teamwork!
Santa's elves can't be the only ones working in December! Last night we went to a networking event outfitted in ugly Christmas sweaters. Technically Bryce wore a grinch-y tee, still festive!
We we met a few new people, Bryce reconnected with someone he knew briefly in 2004, and I got an honorable mention in the ugly sweater contest.
It feels like the Christmas pressure has come upon us, doesn't it? Decorations are everywhere, the merry tunes are non-stop, and I'm seeing photos of kids with Santa on the daily.
Yesterday we got busy stamping, addressing, and mailing our Christmas cards. Armed with glue sticks, return address labels, and a trusty Google document of addresses, we were as busy as Santa's elves. Not pictured are all of the "Please send me your address, thanks!" texts.
Keep an eye on your mailbox, the cards are coming! We're inching our way toward Christmas, friends.
Yesterday the Advent calendar called for Christmas at Home complete with a red and green meal, festive drinks, and a holiday movie, all by the tree!
We had a surprising amount of red and green foods in the house! Our spinach salad was topped with fresh basil, cherry tomatoes, and pomegranate arils. We had gnocchi with pesto and sun dried tomatoes plus a side of steamed broccoli. Bryce also had some red (orange?) peppers.
We watched Christmas with the Kranks and had some hot chocolate, too!
Yesterday the Advent calendar instructed us to give PRESENCE, spending quality time with friends. We met up bright and early for bowling and breakfast with my girl Lena! Oh yeah, her Mom and Michael came too.
