Happy Day

So today is a happy day for several reasons:

1. When I walked into my office this morning there was a Christmas gift on my desk for me. What a great way to start any day. I opened it and it was a black Lands End fleece jacket. I asked for a fleece jacket for Christmas because I am always freezing at work and needing more things to layer with. And I just really like fleece jackets. And it has my company logo on it, which I guess I am getting old, because I kind of like that. I'm not sure why.

2. We had our work Christmas party today. It was at the Malone's Banquet area on top of Sal's restaurant, which is where we had the rehearsal dinner for our wedding. So, happy memories, tasty food, getting to skip some of work today, and it had one of these:

I'm a sucker for a chocolate fountain. I went up twice. You can judge me. I love work Christmas parties. Even though this one was in the middle of the day, I still got a little dressed up for it this morning. I put on eyeliner and fancy pants. Most days I come to work looking like an LCA student - khakis and a polo. It's comfy and easy. (Don't worry, I look nice if I have a meeting or some reason to look nice, but mostly I snicker when we get e-mails from corporate in the summer and at Christmas telling us we can dress in business casual attire, because my attire most days of the year is business VERY casual.) But today, for the Christmas party, I dressed up a little. I might even go as far as to say that if I worked in the New York office, I might be able to wear what I wore today.

3. We have Derek's Bible study Christmas party tonight. This will be lots of fun because it's all of Derek's Bible study and their wives, which equals a lot of our friends. I love our friends and I love when we all hang out together. It used to happen a lot more frequently in college and now that we are all grown up with big people jobs and responsibilities, it doesn't happen nearly as much as I would like.

So I feel really happy right now and just felt like sharing, because what is a blog for if you can't share when you're having a happy day.
