I daresay I was a bit overdressed for our department barbecue last Sunday–the unspoken dress code seemed to be more along the lines of tank tops and shorts–but I’ll be damned if I didn’t feel perfectly adorable.
And I didn’t get a single drop of barbecue sauce on my dress, which is a victory in and of itself.
We didn’t get around to trying the paddleboats on the lake, though, which is a shame. There was one shaped like a dragon! There’s nothing for it but we’ll have to go back sometime and paddle our hearts out.
(I’ll admit that I recently wore this dress in a pretty similar fashion to an outdoor wedding, but I can’t help it! It’s pretty and it makes me feel pretty, and that ain’t wrong.)
All in all, the event was pretty great–it’s always amusing to see co-workers’ families, especially when the families include little boys with little mohawks, or funny, slobbery dogs.
The food was good, the park was lovely, and I got double dessert! Did I mention food? I love food. Food is my best friend. (Sorry, Tia.)
Does your workplace do seasonal events? Our main parties are the summer barbecue and the winter pre-break luncheon, although we’ve also had the odd pizza party or breakfast potluck. It’s always food with us.
