With old and new friends from work at the party
This past Friday afternoon, my company shut down at 2:30pm for our 20th anniversary celebration that took place at Lowe's Island. It was a super nice event that reminded me very much of a wedding reception - it seemed as though no expense was spared.
The very best part of the party were these Mrs. Fields oatmeal cookies with icing that had our corporate logo printed on them; however, at the time, I did not realize that this particular item would have been the highlight of the event in my eyes.
With my dear friend Apryle that I started working with in 2000 and have the pleasure to work with again!
As luck would have it, when I was leaving the party to grab a bite to eat with a couple work friends, two of the guys tagging along grabbed up about 6 extra cookies and stuffed them in my purse...
In between the club and the restaurant, I decided to try a cookie (probably b/c my purse was overflowing with them) and OMG, it was LOVE at first bite; it reminded me exactly of a favorite childhood treat - Little Debbie Oatmeal Cream Pies! I was in heaven.
My resurrected love affair...
The silver lining is that as I was walking by a director's office yesterday (who was NOT at her desk), I spotted a TRAY - an entire TRAY of Little Debbie snacks...you might be wondering if my precious Oatmeal Cream Pies were on that tray and to me DELIGHT they were & they were all the super sized ones!!!
With my NEW friend Sarah at the party
At first I walked past (telling my self "NO") and then something came over me and I stopped in my tracks and returned to the office door...looked both ways as if to try to not get caught, ducked in and grabbed THREE cakes!!! WHAT???
In all honesty, I can not remember the last time I allowed myself to indulge in a Little Debbie snack - so I'm just going to go with it...
In part these weaknesses that I posses are why I work-out ergo the title of this post...I have a very strong feeling that I'll be spending a little extra time on the treadmill this week for sure!
