Just when I think they don't give a damn
I have been with my company for over four years. They have seen me through a troubled marriage, a dead husband, a burnt house, and a pregnancy. And all that happened in the first year I was hired!
So what do these goofballs who I occasionally blog about do for me? They gave me a mini-shower Friday afternoon. I almost cried. I was seriously expecting an Acme cake and a card.
That was not going to happen as per our CEO.
For starters, look at the cake! That beautiful masterpiece came from Clay's Creative Corner Bakery of Berwyn PA. I almost fell over when I saw it. Clay's is the BEST bakery bar none on the Main Line in SE Pennsylvania. I mean they make CUPCAKES that are spectacular! The icing is a yummy buttercream that doesn't leave that sugary frosting taste in your mouth. And the cake is the perfect balance ... not too moist and not dry at all. For anyone that needs a cake for a special occasion (or any occasion) and can get to Berwyn PA, I overly recommend Clay's.
Besides that spectacular cake, I (okay, Geo and I) got gifts! I received a five piece chip-and-dip set from the CEO and his family. Another gift was a fluffy white chenille throw from my co-worker who is an even bigger Harry Potter fan than I. Round all that off with three 4x6 cascading photo frames and two gift certificates and you could have knocked me over with a feather I was in such shock.
It definitely made for one surprisingly delightful afternoon!
