Christmas breakfast with my coworkers

About two weeks ago my manager decided to take us all out to breakfast (her treat!!) at a local restaurant.The only downside was that I had to get up at about 6am to be there at 7am aaaaand I had to work at 11am. But it really didn't matter. I was glad to spend some quality time with my coworkers and get to know them all a little more on a personal level. Thurston (black beanie pictured in car) picked me up and when we got to the diner we were greeted by 4 of the lovely ladies we work with; Cheryl, Pat, Carolyn, and our Manager Mila. I had never been there before so I was taking a bunch of unnecessary photos of everything in sight. But Mila was instagramming the whole time so I thought Ehh what the heck. We had some really good food (giant portions, win!), good conversations, and really good laughs. I love my job. But we all know that what really makes a job enjoyable is the people you work with.

Shout outs + Honorable Mentions

Shoutout to who ever keeps leaving these bows on all the bloody meat in Safeway. Disturbing but funny.

Shoutout to my sister for giving me a really cool notebook! I love it! Thank you :)

Shoutout to gummy worms. Because duh.

Shoutout to all the houses around my city who go all out with the decorations.

Obligatory Christmas post

My 1.5 yard remnant dress!!

In order to save money (and time) I've been raiding the remnants bin at work every chance I get. Sometimes it's a bunch of nothing and others I can find real gems. Like this really bright floral print. Normally I don't go for such BRIGHT colors but I couldn't resist this one. I used Simplicity 2444 for the bodice and drafted my own pattern for the skirt.

Morning lullabies

Danielle came to visit about two weeks ago on a very quiet morning.
