Ok, so they weren’t halls per se…more like a hospital conference room. Every month, the imaging department that I work in puts on a potluck to celebrate the month’s birthdays. To divvy up the responsibilities, each sub-department hosts twice a year (mammography, ultrasound, x-ray, MRI, CT, and the directors/secretaries) and today, my department was in charge! I’ve known we were hosting this month’s celebration for at least a year and couldn’t wait to break out the decorations!
I decided to take on all the responsibilities for decorating so on Wednesday, after I got off work, I drove straight to the cheap Christmas decor plethora…aka Everything’s A Dollar! Heck yeah!
You would not believe the deals! I wanted to buy everything and how hard is it to go absolutely insane in a place where “everything’s a dollar”? I’m such a sucker!
After my shift last night, I
skipped joyfully down the hall walked down to the conference room in our department and started setting up.
Ho! Ho! Ho!
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
Looks like it supposed to be a framed picture of a Christmas tree, huh?
I loved the ginormous present I made to cover the bulletin board.
The most time-consuming project: hanging 20 foam snowflakes.
All this for only $35!!!
Our theme for this month was: Soups, Salads & Holiday Desserts. Since it seems that everybody’s fallback is dessert, we tried to put a bit more emphasis on the other two! But we still ended up with this
White Chicken Chili, Curried Lentil Soup, Chicken Tortilla Soup, Chili with Corn, and my Beef Vegetable Stew with an assortment of crackers and dinner rolls!
And then, as if the day couldn’t get any better, everyone received a gift from our group of radiologists:
…I mean, thank you and Merry Christmas!
