Call me the Easter Bunny

Explanation:

In college my friends called me a rabbit because of the ridiculous amount of produce I consumed.

IMG_2468.JPG

IMG_2474.JPG

But just like the Easter Bunny I am always supplied with candy and enjoy it more than most eight year olds do.

You know you have a problem when your nieces and nephews hide their candy when you come over to visit them.

Tonight I met up with some of the teachers that I worked with last year.  I miss them.  Our faculty was so close last year, we even went on a girls trip to Vegas.

IMG_0563.JPG

We met at Cafe Rio.

I didn't get anything.

I know you think I am lying because I am obsessed with Cafe Rio but........

1.  Sometimes I remember we are living on a teachers salary and realize I can't fund the restaurant industry with my paychecks.

2.  We have so much delicious produce waiting for me to combine them into a delicious salad of spinach, romaine, red onion, sweet potato, snap peas, cilantro and tuna.   Steamed broccoli and carrots on the side.

We had a lot of fun reminiscing until students showed up because some how they found out about our reunion.

They just can't get enough of us.  I wouldn't have been caught dead stalking my teachers in high school.  I guess we are that cool.

If you work, are you close with your co-workers?

-Last year we were so close....this year we still are but the faculty was switched around big time.

Random question: What day is your birthday?  I want to put a bloggers birthday list together and I will link you on your birthday so that people can visit your blog on your b-day to bombard you with birthday love.

-My b-day is February 13th. I am kind of obsessed with birthdays and I LOVE to make a big deal of them.  This probably seems stalkerish so you don't have to but wouldn't you love complete strangers wishing you happy birthday and telling you how awesome you are?!?!

Oh fun!! I'm not terribly close with my co-workers but I like them all. One of my best friends used to be my co-worker until she moved to LA (sad face).

To answer your other Q - I pass the time at the gym by watching the a.m. news (there's a TV on every machine - major perk!). And I'm obsessed with the news.

My B-day is May 28 :)

I am a February baby too! Feb 5 :)

My school also underwent a huge change in faculty so we are not as close as we all were in the past...

No salad with salsa for dressing from Cafe Rio? Incredible! ;)

What a sweet idea about the birthdays... Mine is December 30th!

I'm pretty close with a lot of my coworkers. When I started working here four years ago, there was only a staff of about 20 (and only really 15 in our office). We've grown significantly but we're all pretty much in our 20s and everyone is super fun.

My birthday is Feb 5 :)

I own my own business so am the boss of everyone. My best friend of 20 years is my assistant in the summer- so to say we are close is one big fat epic understatement. My other "real" employee I have known since she was 12- and she fits into our circle of friends like the PB&J in a sandwich. I'm such good friends with them that they are invited to all my family reunions. Love those girls....
Just had a B-Day. Novemer 17th.... I'm sooo olddddd..

I love the blogger birthday idea! Mine is April 13. If you put together a list, I'd join you in the linking love!

I am close with a few people at work. We all have a lot in common, so we get along great!

I student taught and long term subbed twice at the same school, so I was basically on-staff for about 2 years, and I adored the other teachers! I still keep in touch with them by Facebook.
Don't you love running in to students in random places? It happens to me all the time.
And I'm a summer baby--my birthday is July 29.

I am very close with most of my co-workers. I would love a girls getaway with a few of them because I know we would have a blast.

Sadly, I think I have you beat on loving candy more. I *used* to have a candy drawer in the fridge instead of a veggie drawer. That drawer was right on top of the all coke drawer. Hubs and I are NOT healthy people but we do run so somehow it all evens out (I think).

I'm not very close with my co-workers. I'm usually in a one man team and I also work on various projects at the same time. That means different desks and different people all the time. My birthday is 31 July.

I'm February the 4th. I have not held a paying job in 14 years. I've been a stay at home mom and homeschooling teacher for my 5 kids. I actually don't crave candy! I know can you believe it...

I love that idea because I love birthdays! I was lucky to spend my 21st this year celebrating at my cousin's wedding with all my family and boyfriend. My birthday is October 22.

Mine is April 7th, although I tend to ahhh... strecth it into a birthday week... or month. This year i couldnt even have cake or any big meals out, but I still celebrated for days. That's just how I roll I guess! lol

My birthday is November 1st, but if you remember that next year, I'll be pleasantly surprised.

 
At December 1, 2010 at 9:18 AM , Blogger Shellyrm said...

I put on warm veggies right on my big salad. In fact, my lunch and dinner are often made up of my big salad with whatever left overs I have from previous meals I made for the rest of my family. Yummy! I gotta get my 7 a day.(my coworkers call me a rabbit too)


Right now I only work with 2 other people on a daily basis so I'd say we are pretty close.
I am November 12th.

Go Bunnies! :)

You are so blessed to have such awesome co-workers! I am starting to build that base with a monthly "Girls Night" but sometimes I have a tough time connecting since I have moved a lot :P

Nov. 23rd --I was a Turkey baby! :)

My husband is my only co-worker. We own our own business and work from home. I think we would be closer if we weren't so close all the time ;-)

My birthday is February 21st!

Mmmm is it too early for nerds? I'm close with a small number of co-workers now, but was always very anti work/personal line-crossing before.

May 24th!

Birthday = March 3. Its a week long celebration for sure.

i am close with some co-workers but I work in such a diverse group (age wise) that is hard to get close to the older people. I mainly hang out with the young 20-somethings. I also am the only girl in my group (of 40ish ppl) so it adds a little something. I sometimes feel alone and have no one to talk to about girly stuff, but I love my job and I have one really close guy friend at work who lets me vent and talk to him about my girl stuff if I need to (clothes, hair, etc! and running!)

Thanks for the happy b'day wish! I am giving you a shout-out in my next post. Hope you don't mind--it's in regards to showers! ha ha!! :D

Thanks for checking out my blog! I'm glad you like the cupcakes - YUMMM! I think unlimited (-ish) sweets is a-ok as long as you balance it with large quantities of veggies! :)

And my birthday is February 23! Great idea!

When I taught Kindergarten, I worked with some awesome teachers - we were all the same age and trying to figure it out together. I can't imagine getting through that 1st year without them! My birthday is October 3rd. :)

Next time either one of us is across the country (you in NC or me in Utah), let's get together for cupcakes! :)

Thats awesome that the staff was so close! Love that your students stalked you guys! HAHAHA!

In my other office (across the street) I was much closer to some of my coworkers. Some of them I would see outside of work and knew their families (I was over there for 5 years).

I've been in this other building for a year and a half and I am good friends with a small group, but I like everyone. I don't hang out with any of them outside of work.

my birthday is Feb 5 :-)

I would LOVE to be co-workers with you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We would have so much fun! I am not really close with my co-workers. Environment is weird here. I am really close with the English teacher I coach with and two other teachers I know well from trainings. But nobody that I would hang out with outside of school. You are lucky to have such a good group. Actually, the dad of one of those girls I am close with. Donny. I love him! He has always made sure to make me feel welcome!

I am close to my co workers! A lot of them are my age and we all go out together on the weekend :)

I get called a rabbit for all the veggies I eat too!!! I could also be considered a monkey for all the bananas I eat!

I love Nerds and Laffy Taffy!! My favs!
I'm close with my co-workers but more so at work then on the weekends. We all kinda agree that we see each other 40+ hours a week and that's probably enough! haha
My bday is 4/20!

I am not super close with my co-workers, but we all get along and enjoy each other at the office (and the occassional company party!)... We did a Vegas trip last summer, which was pretty fun, except it was a working trip, so SOME of us didn't party too much. Others of us partied so much we fell asleep on a convention center floor. That wasn't me, btw.

everywhere i work i usually end up with at least one close friend. i'm not good at big groups of people...but one or two solid friends usually is enough for me :)

I'm a teacher, also -- and while I'm friendly with my closest co-workers, I learned the hard way several years ago to keep my personal life out of my job. Some "friends" at work turned out to be anything but. :( That's awesome that you're close with yours! Our district got some major shuffling this past year too.

My birthday was October 16th :)

I eat an excessive amount of candy...it's delicious!

I never realized how close I was with the nurses at my last job until I had to leave them when I switched jobs...while I don't miss anything about my last job, I do miss the nurses since they taught me how to be one. Still settling in at the new job. :)

My birthday is June 20th!

My b-day = 7th of July. What a great idea!

 
At December 3, 2010 at 12:01 AM , Blogger Hannah said...

That sounds like serious fun! Me and my coworkers get along well, share to much information, and get wasted together a couple times a year. But it's my part-time job, and I work in a restaurant. When you work in food service most coworker bonding is done over alcoholic beverages! Ha!

And my birthday is July 12th! I love this idea!

No I work for a huge company and as a result I barely know anyone I work with. My boss works at a different location so we talk by phone, but I rarely see anyone and eat lunch at my desk.

I love birthdays, I make a huge deal about them. I put yours in my outlook calendar, because I think it's perfectly fine to wish a fellow blogger (i.e. some I stalk daily, haha) happy birthday on their special day.
