Office Christmas Party

Hello friends!

I hope everyone is having a great week!  Let me begin by saying that I have been running like a mad woman.. well kinda, I have been running a 5k everyday this week and it feels so good. I didn’t get up this morning to go run, but I plan on squeezing in a little run after work.  Speaking of work, yesterday we had our office Christmas/holiday party. Tuesday night, with the help of Anya and my mother-in-law, we made four different cookies!

Christmas Sandies, which had cranberries in them,. yum!

Five-minute Fudge, also very good.

Rum balls

And these awesome Swirl cookies I found on Pintrest.

I ran out of sprinkles while making the Christmas Sandies, so the swirl cookies did not have any :(, but they were still delicious.

We had a lot of leftover cookies, so I sent some to work with Erik today :)

I think there are approximately 20 people in my office at this point, and we had enough food to feed about 100 people, ha.  I ate my fair share of food, don’t worry.

I wish I could tell you I didn’t go back for more mac &cheese, but I can’t, because it was so good I needed more.  After we all had finished eating, it was time to start the white elephant gift exchange.  There were a lot of presents under our office tree.

I had brought two bottles of red wine, and it was one of the most popular gifts!

There was a Dick’s sporting goods gift card that I really wanted (because I need new workout clothes), but it was stolen from me a handful of times.  Despite that I walked away a happy person.

Woot! Sangria, chocolate and a $15 iTunes gift card, winner!

It was a fun day at the office.  Tonight we are celebrating Christmas with my mom and sister, because they are going snowboarding and will not be here :(

I hope everyone has a great day!

Did you have an office Christmas party? Did you exchange gifts?
