While starting a new job is super exciting, leaving an old job is very sad! My dear friends at NBIA threw me an amazing farewell party. Purple Chopstix catering has been a tradition at NBIA for a long time, and I was happy to hear Ed would be preparing all my favorites!!
I love these little cracker appetizers.
Greek pita pizza!
Veggies! Featuring jumbo asparagus!
A beautiful rainbow salad.
SWEET POTATO PEANUT PASTA!
Yellow chicken curry!
All together, now!
Even though Cheryl told Ed that the dessert was taken care of for the evening, he's too sweet and he made chocolate covered strawberries anyway...
... AND the famous Purple Chopstix chocolate raspberry cake that is my FAVORITE!!!! Oh, boy!
It was sweet treat heaven! Cheryl made these adorable cupcakes with flowers on top! She was about in tears when she presented these to me, because she babysat them all day long in the air conditioned office, then made one errand on the way to the party and the pillowy swirls of orange cream frosting melted in the heat of her car. I think they are BEAUTIFUL and they certainly tasted delicious!
And then there was ALSO an ice cream cake from Larry's Dawg House!!!!!!!!!!!
These people must really like me!
Billie and Randy!
As a parting gift, I got this beautiful magical rainbow unicorn pegasus wind chime!
We got to play cornhole!
Aw, Megan got me this OHIO mug! I guess it's official now! Ohio University, here I come!
I hung the magical rainbow unicorn pegasus wind chime outside my kitchen window. It's so beautiful! Now whenever it twinkles in the wind, I can think fondly of the friendships I've made throughout my years at NBIA.
