Celebration Station

Those in Houston, do you remember that place? I remember going there for fun and games whenever there was something to celebrate.

Anyway, thank you for the feedback from my previous post. I tried all the advice I got and it seems it might be working. Or all the worries are in my head. I guess time will tell.  But after posting the post, and going to work the last couple days, things seemed to have changed.Everything takes time and if I don’t feel like I fit in now, maybe I just have to try try again and not over think things. I tend to do so.

I met a British man today. He’s going to be the liaison between me and my new contractor company. He is funny and has a really sweet accent. I am jealous of his accent. And he is kind of cute. 😉 I always think contractor companies send over older people but he seems to be in his middle to late 20s if I have to guess. But uh … can I holla atchu boy? haha JK!

On Wednesday my company invited the people on my floor for a Christmas Luncheon at the Downtown Aquarium. If I remember correctly, I don’t think I’ve ever been there so I was very excited … until we got there and realized we weren’t going to see the whole aquarium. Womp Womp.

The picture you see is from the restaurant part of the aquarium. It was really big and we actually saw a lot of fishies and sting rays and whatnot. Just wish I could of seen the sharks and stuff too.

Here was our food lineup:

  • Salad
  • Cranberry Bread – AMAZING. And I never say that about bread.
  • Beef tenderloin with mashed potatoes and steamed veggies – medium rare, no flowing jucies. One of my coworkers sent it back because it wasn’t “dead” enough. teehee And I love what they did with the mashed potatoes. They always tasted better when it’s not just plopped down on the plate.
  • Chocolate Mousse (Disgusting. Sorry.), Key Lime Pie (LOVE LOVE LOVE especially the shell), Crème Brulee (wasn’t bad but could be a little thicker for better taste)

I made pound cake! Since we decided to celebrate BossMan’s birthday early, I promised him pound cake and I delivered. I didn’t get to taste any so maybe next time. But it sure smelled delicious!

We went out to lunch today for BossMan’s birthday. That prime rib was DELICIOIUS. Cooked to perfection. I know what I’m getting next time I’m here .. whenever that will be. We even had a Carrot Cake from Ooh La La Bakery. It was $60 something bucks! But all worth it since it weighed like 10 pounds.

Tomorrow night it’s BossMan’s Birthday Celebration Part 2 … cannot wait. Eep.

Have a great Friday tomorrow! 🙂
