Gala's all week long baby

So first of all, let me introduce you to my new favorite word, "Gala". It means a festive celebration. Honestly, the word party has lost all meaning for me. From now on it is Gala all the time.

Gala 1 - Friday night Gala at the Estates with my Gram and her new friends. It was....well...luckily Joe Sako was there. His almost grandma Nina was SO nice to Gram. I hope that there is a new friendship there. The food was nice and the people were all great. Honestly though, a little karaoke would have been nice. It would have bumped this Gala into outstanding.

Gala 2 - Giga Gala for my favorite Boss with his favorite managers. This Gala was so much fun, and took place at one of my favorite festive places...Maple Gardens. The thing that was special about this Gala was the fact that we gave our boss some super sweet gifts. Namely "I heart Judge Judy" shirt, and a JAZZ shirt. Fun was had by all. Also, Gina bought my lunch - love that girl.

Gala 3 - Company Meeting Gala. More like a meeting, but because we all got laser pointers it has been escalated to a Gala. Also cookies and cranberry juice were served.

Gala 4 - Girls Gala. I am actually just coming off of this Gala high. It was so much fun. A shout out to Val, Jen, Jessica, Kaylee, Lindee, and Taylor. I got what sounded like a really good item off of the menu, but it turns out it was just a giant block of mozzarella cheese melted and then topped with one single tortilla chip. Otherwise this Gala was tops. So fun. I love these girls and feel so blessed to have wonderful friends at work and beyond! We missed you Gina!

The coming few days will be filled with more Gala's and I can hardly wait.

I love the new word... well not "new" (in terms of Webster)... but new to your vocab. I do have question on the pronunciation, however... and would like you to clear that up (in person)Ü
Such a fun time... thanks for coming. Love you
