Holiday Work Party

On Saturday night, my work had a little belated Christmas party. We all invited guests out for wings (salad and fries for my vegetarian self), exchanged Secret Santa presents, and had a merry old time. I absolutely love the people I work with and we get along so well. Plus my boss is actually the most wonderful boss in the world. She made each of us a little charm-type-thing as a present, and attached a word that applied to each of us. Mine was "abundance of love," which gave me warm and fuzzies. This is the outfit I wore for the party, and you sure can bet I felt overdressed going out for wings! Classic dilemma.

The work party was especially fun because three of my absolute favourite people happened to be there! One of my best friends (Emily) is dating my boyfriend's best friend (Mark), and earlier this year I was able to get him (Mark) a job at the bookstore I work at. As a result, the four of us see each other all the time and have become ridiculously close. I know, ugly right? Best friends dating best friends who become best friends. It's just awful and cheesey, but I love those folks. So the four of us went to the work party together, and then afterwards moseyed on over to Mike (my boyfriend)'s house. We had a merry old mini-party time and it was just the greatest.

I absolutely love these spotted tights, but about an hour into wearing them, they got caught on a pokey bit of wood and ripped. I've bought SO MANY pairs of tights like this (including ones with CUTE hearts and others with anchors), and I ALWAYS have issues. Do you guys ever have that problem? It's just the worst! I can't keep a pair of tights for more than a day.

Anyway, today is the first day of winter semester. I am not ready to be back at all. My break was far too short, especially because I worked through most of it, and because of some stressful family stuff going on. But I suppose I'm just going to have to suck it up and bury my nose in some books! I hope those of you who are also students are able to brave the new semester! And for those of you lucky folks who are out of school, I hope your new year is going just swell. Has anyone given up on their resolutions yet?
