Just got home from spending the evening...  
... at the Hawaii Prince Hotel for our department's annual "Race to Retirement" party. It was a lot of hard work, but it was SUCH fun! The best part, of course, was getting to spend time with my wonderful co-workers outside of work... by the end of the evening everyone was just REALLY drunk... thankfully most of them didn't have to drive home!

Instead of me writing about last night, here are some photos...

With Steven & Jay - this would've been a cute picture if Jay didn't blink. :(
Those shell things they're wearing are luggage tags we turned into name tags. :P

The registration girls: Me, Sandy, and Jillian

The ENTIRE back office staff - I love these guys!

With Nadine & Darwin, my two Kapiolani friends I haven't seen in a long time!

With Steven (who was a bit drunk at that point) and Jo

The girls: Sandy, me, Jillian, and Shari (the one who took over my old job)

This morning Mark & I ate at the Prince Court breakfast buffet and leisurely packed all our stuff and checked out of the wonderful air-conditioned hotel room. This afternoon we're heading to Diamond Head Theatre to see the closing night performance of "Gigi" - so it's a pretty eventful and exhausting weekend.

I'm off to catch up on all of your entries. Hope you've all had a lovely weekend! Big HUGS to you!!

Thanks for your comment! :) We had a lot of fun!! And I got to see what happens first hand when a bunch of conservative investment bankers are let loose on hosted bar. ;) The fact that I don't drink helps - I think I'm the only one who remembers a lot of what happened that night. ;)

It was a lot of fun!

And yet, all your pictures seem so innocent!

Well it looks like you had a fun weekend. Don't you just wish you had one more day off?

I always feel like that when we get 3 day weekends here. I go do something eventful over the 3 day weekend and then I always wish I had an extra day to recoup from it.

I do! I REALLY wish I had just one more day to catch up on all the things I need to get done around the house! Next weekend is incredibly busy as well - I'm volunteering at the 50th State Fair (in a hamburger booth - imagine that!)

I agree with you, I think weekends should be a day longer. :D

It was SOOO much fun - but so much work!! What I love about my office is that we all work really hard, but when it's time to play, we play hard too! ;)

BTW, I'm loving your new icons!! They're SO cute!!

Great pictures! Looks like you all had a nice time. :)

By the way did you remember to watch Julie Ann on The Riches rerun? If not I'm sure it'll be on again seeing as the season is almost done. :)

Thanks, Laura! We had a wonderful time!! :D

And I didn't get to see the Julie episode of The Riches, but I did tape it when you told me about it so I can watch it soon. :D Thanks for the heads up! :D

I'm glad to hear that the party was such a fun and that you could spend a nice time with your co-workers. :) And thanks for sharing the photos, I loved to look at them and I've to say that you all really look great.

Hope your week is going well! Big *hugs* to you, Sheri!

Thanks for the comment, Sabine!! :) We really had a wonderful time at the party, even though it was a lot of work, too... I just really like the people I work with - so that definitely helps! :D

Hope you're having a lovely week as well! Big HUGS and much love to you!!
