Thankful Thursday #99: reunited at last

Posted on

At last…

My looooove has come along.

WAIT! Stop the music.  Before I continue with my post, I have to right a wrong I did on my last Thankful Thursday. There probably were lots of omissions on that post because I with such generous people in my life, but the one I realized was that I didn’t include was Debbi‘s cookies, which she sent to me just because.

They were so good I didn’t get a picture of them, which is why I forgot to include them.  This photo, which I swiped from a friend’s Tumblr post, is the only proof her Snickerdoodles and Wookie Cookies were ever in my possession.  These were the best snickerdoodles I ever had, I just loved how fat and fluffy they were.  Thank you so much Debbi, you are a gem!

OK, back to your regularly scheduled programming…

I’m so dramatic with my title, you probably think I’ve been reconnected with a long-lost friend.  Nope, just my bestest sister-friend!  Danielle and I are now working together at the REC again!  We both started around the same time in the spring of 2004 and she left about a year later.  We were quite the pair, constantly being “shushed” when we sat together on the floor, because WE CAN’T CONTROL THE VOLUME OF OUR VOICES !  Or our laughter.  And ever since that first Halloween we worked together, management has continued to remind everyone to wear “work appropriate” costumes for Halloween.  Probably while visions of a certain witch and go-go girl dance in their heads.  Oops.

That pic was taken by a co-worker that came home with us after work for a photo shoot, so we really did, yes we did, go to work looking like that.

I do have to say our skirts were a bit on the short side.  And the tight side.  Wow.  But at least I had a cape to cover my butt, Danielle.  ;)

I do remember burning with embarrassment from the moment I stepped out of the car until we got back into it (we used to car pool), so I guess I did have some sense when it came to what was appropriate for an office environment, I just didn’t have the sense to apply it. lol

I don’t have anything else to say except I’m so thankful to be working with my sister again!  Though we live in the same city, we don’t spend much time together like we used to because we’re both so busy, and it’s nice to have some time we can chat face-to-face, even if it is on short breaks.  I’ll take it!

I don’t care if it’s lame, I’m giddy with excitement to be working with Danielle again. <3  Let’s see if we can stay out of trouble this time!

Wow, next week will be my 100th Thankful Thursday post! We should celebrate. Give me some ideas of something fun I could do for it.  Perhaps a giveaway or something?  Give me some ideas! (Update: Rhonda suggested me giving away my own baked goods. Would you be interested in that?)

    I am SO happy for you! I can only imagine how thrilled I’d be too. Costumes are awesome! =) We have a lot of things in common (I’m known to be pretty loud too!=) and I think having special girlfriends in our lives is vital. I printed Debbi’s Wookie Cookie recipe. Love reading your Thankful Thursdays. A giveaway would be a great way to celebrate. I’m getting ready to do the same thing myself one day soon.

  5. I think anybody would be thankful to get some of your baked treats for your 100th post. It makes me smile to know you are working with your sister, I miss mine so much as she is in PA and I am out here in AZ.

    Love snickerdoodles! And your costumes are AWESOME but I can guarantee my guy wouldn’t let me out of the house in either one of them! “Too much public leg,” he would say! But if he wasn’t around, I’d totally rock an outfit like those!

  8. I love the costumes, people just need to lighten up a bit and have a sense of humor. I’ve seen way, way worse than that at the work place trust me. In fact today, I went to the grocery store dressed in jeans, high heel boots and a sweater and jacket. I see my old boss on her break wearing old Mom jeans and a ratty t-shirt…ugh! And I’m the one not working…lol!! Anywho, I’m so glad you guys are working together again. I’m sure you’re having fun ;) I can say I love your baked goods, so I think that’s an awesome idea for a give-away :)
