See You Soon

July 7, 2012


Tonight we attended a “see you soon” (not farewell!) party for one of our employees, Ellen, who is moving to Northern VA where her fiancé got a new job.

We will miss seeing her day after day!

The dinner was organized by the staff at Mono Loco, a restaurant favorite!

I had to partake in a virgin Spice-A-Rita! Best virgin drink ever : )


It was a bit steamy in our booth for 14

I feasted upon Bobby’s Burrito in a bowl – Crispy Cod + Spicy Shrimp! Plus beans, rice, greens and special sauces.


I wondered if I would be able to finish it all since Mono Loco tends to leave me stuffed, but I had no trouble polishing off my dish! Take that stomach space ; )


After dinner, we went over to Mary Beth’s for some dessert!


Served in a fancy red solo cup : )


Tucking into bed now – big day tomorrow!

Dessert in a solo cup—ha!

Hard to say goodbye to people you know! Yummy burrito bowl – reminds me of the naked burritos I get from Qdoba. Luv

Burrito bowls are always a great choice, especially when fish is an option!

Let’s be honest here: everything is better in a red solo cup.

Girl, I would DEVOUR that dinner. Shrimp doesn’t last very long in front of my face.

Solo cups are 100% pure class, right? :)

Going away parties are bittersweet but this one looks like more fun times that bitter :)

I am loving Karen’s green shorts- so snazzy!

Love the pic of Ellen & Karen!

It can be sad when people move away. It looks like you have such a happy group working with you!


10 Katie @ Peace Love and Oats July 8, 2012 at 6:32 am

At least she’s not moving too far! And what a great party!


11 Ann July 8, 2012 at 8:01 am

Aw, what sweet bosses you are! And she seems like a genuine sweetheart – you can tell from the pics! Best of luck to her and her fiancee :)


12 Ellen July 8, 2012 at 8:24 am

Perfect title. I’ll miss you all but I will definitely see you soon! Thanks for everything!

Aw, what a great send off! :) Good luck to Ellen in her next phase!

Goodbyes are never easy!

Yeah… Mono Loco is SO good. I ate half of my meal when I went there, and was stuffed! Then again, I also had chips and guac and plantains…

I had Mexican food last night, too! First time in months (which is way too long!). Vegetable burrito–delish :)


18 Dannii @ Hungry Healthy Happy July 8, 2012 at 2:12 pm

A crispy cod burrito bowl sounds delicious. I am experimenting with making Mexican food a bit outside of the box at the moment, so might have to give this a go.

I am sure it is hard to see great employees leave :(
