I've had a great past week. I went to my work's holiday party and it was a spectacular night. It was held in Downtown San Diego. Our President is part of this fancy club so we had this nice room at the top of this building all to ourselves with a really great view. I ended up taking Bubba (my sister's boyfriend) as my date and it was fun having him with me because he has his social skills down! Yes I took my sister's boyfriend but he's one of my best friends and I knew we'd have fun. Everyone teased me that night too with their "Oh, you're friend huh?" remarks. So typical but it was super funny because no one really knew the real story besides my close friend at work.
We had an open bar and all these yummy hors d'oeuvres. There were mushroom caps with a spinach filling, coconut shrimp, egg rolls, and lamb. Omg that lamb was to die for! Then we had our delicious dinner. That was hands down, the best meal I've ever had. Bubba and I both had the filet mignon with lobster tail. I thought it was going to be a tiny portion, but it was perfect! Sooooooo good! Then we got our dessert sampler which was really good too. There was like a brownie with berry sauce, bread pudding, chocolate dipped strawberry, and a chocolate cake.
When we finished dinner, we got onto our Secret Santa. For some reason, I knew I was going to be the first one to open mine since I'm the newest employee and I was right. I was kind of embarrassed because we also had to guess who our Secret Santa was, but that bit of wine helped me! haha. I ended up getting a MAC cosmetics gift card from my project manager and was super happy about it. I don't exactly know what I'm going to get, but a mineralized eyeshadow duo might be on top of my list. Another great thing that night was that I got a Christmas bonus. I was totally not expecting one because I'm new and I'm an intern. I didn't get my hopes up but I got one anyways and am super stoked. I hope I get hired full-time by next year!
