I had my last Christmas party of the year tonight. I work in the food service part at Notre Dame University and the holidays are super busy for us providing food for the students and all the department events that go on- for us to take time off then doesn't work very well. so we get our Christmas party after we come back from break.
Usually it is the first Friday but because of the national championship game last weekend The day was changed because Some of our guest were lucky (unlucky?) this year and went to Florida for the game. We lost - but I think Alabama really wanted it and we got a couple of bad calls at the beginning. I am still proud of our team- we were not even ranked at the beginning of the season- ended up being Number 1 with a 12/0 season.
I took my Aunt this year - I have never taken her before and I think she enjoyed it. It is pretty nice- there are about 600+ people there. I had a wonderful salad and a roll. Chicken stuffed with feta and spinach, wild rice and broccoli. we each got 2 drinks and I splurged and had peach snaps and cranberry, plus a desert. I splurged but- because I new it was coming I did good on my intake for the day. There was dancing- but I talked instead. :)
Plus for the first time I won a door prize. A portable DVD player. Pretty cool!
I just know this is going to be my year! It started off good with a nice party, good weather for traveling and a prize. The rest is just going to get better!
