Chunky Monkey

Some of you who do know me know that I love my job. There is always something new going on; there is never a dull moment! I've gotta say that working with great people is a big part of it too.

I understand that some people are work at work and then be yourself at home, but honestly I feel sorry for those people. Maybe its because their job forces them to be, but one of the best friendships I've ever had has come from my boss. He is one of the most interesting people I've ever met, always entertaining, has such a loving and supportive family, and he really cares about his job.

Being newly single, I was kind of dreading Valentine's Day. Let's get real here, who doesn't hate Valentine's Day when their single? Bah, whatever. So I started out with a rough morning, was running late for work, and then when I finally got there I found yellow roses waiting for me on my desk. They were from my boss. (Don't worry I know he got his wife bigger and more beautiful flowers than me!) That amount of thoughtfulness just blew me away, and I am thankful every day to have my job, to work with the people I work with, and the constant little surprises life throws at me along the way.

As payback for his kindness I made him a Chunky Monkey Cake. It's yellow cake mix with bananas, chocolate chips, and pecans with a milk chocolate frosting. My boss loves monkeys; I knew it would be perfect. And the cake was an absolute success, if you ever wanna try something different and unique: Chunky Monkey.
