Spent most of my Sunday...  
...watching Season 2 of "Slings & Arrows" and getting my ass thoroughly kicked in Scrabble by Rod. :) Not an entirely bad way to spend the day - and I find myself already missing the weekend. :P

Friday night was our department's annual Holiday Party. This year, it was held at The Kahala - which is one of the nicest hotels on the island. I don't know how the wonderful organizers in our back office got BIG boss to agree to that location, but it was certainly nice - not to mention the extra perk of rooms for the back office staff. :)

Look at our beautiful room and check out that HUGE flatscreen TV in the room! Whoa! :)

Even though we were on the 1st floor, we had a beautiful view of the grounds from our window!! :)

With Jay and Sandy at the reception table. :)

The entire back office staff! :)

Everyone was having a bit too much fun with the "Project Runway" game that we had
- Kaidi & Kelly decided I needed some sprucing up... That thing in my hair
is an ornament off the tree - courtesy of Miss Kaidi. ;)

The next morning Mark & I headed to the Plumeria Beach House downstairs for one of the best Breakfast Buffets I've had in a long time!! One of the highlights was a "Kahalasada" - similar to a Malasada, but The Kahala's own version with Li Hing powder and sugar sprinkled over it - just delicious!! :) Plus they have THE BEST miso soup and sticky buns around!! I'm in love with the buffet - but I must've gained about 10 pounds this weekend... :P

On our way back from the hotel, we stopped by to FINALLY order our Holiday Photo Cards - we're SOOOO behind this year! :( I know we'll get them out eventually, but right now it seems like Christmas is coming much too fast!! :P

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

Me too!!! The bed was SOOOOO soft - it felt like I was enveloped in a HUGE marshmellow!! :)

And we all had a great time! The girls who planned the party this year really went all out!! :)

I'm glad to hear that you had a nice time! And thanks for sharing the pictures. You all really look great and the room and the view are beautiful. :) That thing in your hair looks a bit like a dragonfly, to me. :) Big hugs to you, Sheri!

It was a nice party and the girls in the office worked really hard to plan it. :) The room was just gorgeous!! I didn't want to leave... :) And I think that thing in my hair was a dragonfly! :D The girls were a bit "happy" toward the end of the party and insisted I take the picture with it in my hair. :)

The hotel was just so beautiful - especially the grounds and the lobby all decorated for the holidays! :D I probably will never get the chance to stay in a place like that again so it was a real treat! :) I didn't want to leave!

Thanks for your comment! Big HUGS to you!!
