One whiny thing I hadn't mentioned in the post was my lack of warm clothing. I really only had one versatile sweater, and I had worn it everyday for too many days in a row. So, after work I stopped at Savers for a little retail therapy.
For $20, I brought home two pairs of work pants + 3 sweaters. Yay!

Thursday morning brought a surprise bonus from work. Everyone got one, and the amount depended upon how long you'd worked there in 2012. Since I started after July 1st, I didn't actually get a check but a $25 gift card to Target. Sweet!
Now, I always bring my lunch, but I'm also never one to turn down free food, so when invited out to lunch, I couldn't say no.
I had a delicious veggie stir fry at Le Thai in downtown Vegas.

1 is mild.
2 is medium.
3 is hot.
4 is fire.
All I could think was, if 4 is fire, what is 5? Nuclear?
The super fun looking restaurant next door had this sign outside.
At least two of us had to take a picture. :D
And then my day ended with some TV and hot cocoa with my husband.
So, yeah. It was a good day.
Now, today, we're celebrating Christmas at work. Instead of having a traditional company holiday party, they've devoted the entire day to celebrating. We started off with a continental breakfast. I *wanted* to take a picture, but I left my phone at my desk and ended up eating in the cafeteria.
I had some light peach yogurt, and mammoth-sized blueberry muffin, and the most delicious to-die-for mini quiche.
Yesterday, they sent out a menu for today's lunch:
Prime RibGood thing I worked out this morning. *wink*
Variety of vegetables
Variety of salads
and of course Desserts

Does your company do anything special for the holidays?
