My Week in Sketches7:11 AM
My staff Christmas party was last week, and it was so much fun! We had everyone stand up and "introduce" themselves (since we have a few recent staff hires who don't know everyone.) Everyone cheered SO loudly when my first coworker stood up, I thought there was no way we could possibly maintain that excitement level through 45 introductions...but our staff never let up, cheering ridiculously for each and every staffer. It was my favorite part of the evening.
My friends and I went out to dinner at a seafood restaurant. I don't care for seafood, and I was the only one in the group who ordered chicken...I was very happy with my decision, especially once I saw the giant crab they ordered.
Some of us went to our friend's parents' house for the first time, and we loved looking at all the photos of her when she was little.
I accidentally slept in a liiiiiitle later than I meant to...
My friends' kids and I decorated a gingerbread house together, which is one of my favorite Christmas traditions!
My church pastor was able to speak in a forum about racial reconciliation this week. We gathered as a staff to watch it live, cheering him on from afar.
I went out to dinner with my friend, and after an hour of sitting and chatting and we'd eaten our dinner...she realized she'd only drank about a fourth of her lemonade! We laughed about it, and I just couldn't wrap my head around how someone sips that slowly.
