Gobble ’til You Wobble

Gobble 'til You Wobble Image 2Before I started working at Hayneedle 3 ½ years ago I had enjoyed many food days, however, I had never experienced an event as wonderful as the annual Gobble ‘til You Wobble food day organized by the 2nd Floor teams each year.  This extravaganza is held on the Friday before Thanksgiving.  Each department is assigned a particular item to contribute.   Ever since that first Gobble ‘til You Wobble food day I wait for the reoccurrence every year.

The event is planned by the Turkey Committee comprised of members from each department on our floor.  Each year I am excited to be a member of this awesome group of dedicated folks.  Our amazing leader, Krista from technology, has the undertaking of organizing the entire event and making sure all the essential food categories are covered. She also takes on the responsibility of bringing the Tums.

This year I passed along my words of wisdom to the new hires that had not yet had the opportunity to experience a Gobble ‘til You Wobble day– wear stretchy, elastic clothing on Friday.
