I am Back But Not For Long
Wow what a wonderful three days I have had at my work retreat. I can not tell you all enough how amazing the organization that I work for is and it’s even more amazing that I had a chance to go on a retreat to experience some community building with the people I work with on a daily basis.
We went to another camp that my work owns called Ojai located about 2 1/2 hours away from us. It was quite chilly out there it’s really close to the beach.
Hubby made sure he was all bundled up :)
Our first night we had a BBQ outside.
My eyes were bigger then my tummy, I took a little bit of everything but ate about half of it. I haven’t had Tri-Tip in a LONG time, it was darn good!
I also loved the cornbread and honey mustard carrots. After dinner we all “bonded” around the fire.
We had some pretty high tech roasting sticks that extended and rotated.
They had Resse’s to make smore’s with, brilliant! I enjoyed one, minus the marshmallow.
In the morning we enjoyed breakfast outside as well, it was beautiful!!!
I enjoyed some oatmeal with banana and a little brown sugar.
Along with half a blueberry pancake, eggs and fruit.
During the day we had a wonderful speaker, worship, and also some fun games! I was given the task of trying to make a pine tree behind my back with one piece of green paper, needless to say mine was pretty sad looking…
For snack (lunch wasn’t until 1pm) I enjoyed a Honest Food, Choco Peanut Butter Bars. I believe this is their best bar yet!
For lunch I enjoyed a black bean burger with a salad, beans, and a little potato salad. Not your typical camp food ;).
After lunch I got a little camera lesson from my co-worker Kyle who does all of our video for work. I have had a Cannon Rebel XT for a couple years now but I don’t “really” know how to use it. He taught me a couple things, but I need more lessons!
After my camera lesson about 15 of us went out to the local park and played softball for about four hours and then came back to camp starved!! For dinner they had a beef taco bar, I made it into a large salad. The guacamole tasted so good!
For desert I had a bite or two of this wonderful cheese cake tart. Cheesecake and I don’t really get along.
Todays breakfast was very similar to yesterday’s. For lunch I made a large salad.
And stole a bight of Hubby’s cookie.
He wasn’t too Happy with me.
What a fun time with work friends and Hubby. When I got home tonight I had to run to go get my hair cut by a good friend and now I have bangs! I also picked up a quick dinner, Subway Veggie Sammie!
Alright friends I am all packed for our trip to Nashville in the morning. We have to be at Skinny “Wife’s” house at 5:30am, so I should be in bed (it’s 11pm here). I am not sure if I will get to blog tomorrow at all with all the traveling, but I really hope I can go for a run after we land, I haven’t run since Sunday!
Next time you here from me, I will be saying Y’all from Nashville, TN!
