I am on vacation today, and it feels so good! I have been looking forward to having a day off with my babies for as long as I have been back to work! I'm working on a post highlighting my transition back into the corporate world, but I'll give you a little preview: it's HARD! Something that made it a little more enjoyable to go to work everyday recently though, was our Christmas decorations!
At Biomet, my department is located on the second floor. We teamed up with other second floor departments and had a friendly decorating contest. Oh my goodness, it was so much fun! We had very important meetings to discuss the theme and logistics of it all...and we decided our theme would be "Christmas At The Movies". Fun, right?
Each team member decorated their cubicle/office area with a different movie in mind, and then to hammer it all home we just put random Christmas decor on every available surface...just for good measure! We had many classic movies covered, including Elf, Santa Claus is Coming To Town, Charlie Brown Christmas, White Christmas, Miracle on 34th Street, Rudolph, It's A Wonderful Life, and How The Grinch Stole Christmas. Here are some pictures of the fun going on around the second floor of Biomet Orthopedics:
I really loved creating this fireplace and mantle...love when my creative juices can flow at work!
A full sized Christmas tree!!!! In a cubicle!!!! AWESOME!
When we turned the overhead lights off, the place was magical!
In the end, our department won! We are pretty confident that bringing in a projector and playing Christmas movies on the wall while serving fresh popped popcorn sealed the deal for us. The judges were pretty blown away!
What a fun way to celebrate the Holiday Season at work! I've said it before, and I'll say it again-I am grateful for the company I work for, and even more grateful for the people I am surrounded with on a daily basis!
I also want to share this picture of what I wore for our Tacky-Christmas-Sweater day:
Lilly and I had a blast painting this on Tuesday night for me to wear on Wednesday...nothing like waiting until the last minute! I received many comments on it too, and I think it's perfect! Tacky or not, I'm sure I will wear this annually!
