So last night I got all gussied up to go to our companies Christmas party. I wasn't really sure what to expect as the past place I worked, the Christmas party was about 50 people in a motel banquet room getting getting a tad.. well you know..Think more family reunion style than company party.
But that was partly what I loved about it. I was in a room full of people I knew and loved and cared about.
It was always a blast.
When our company party came around this year, I wasn't sure if I would even go. I know a handful of people who work there and I really didn't think it would be any fun. Hubs had to work, thus I wouldn't have a date and really.. I didn't feel like going and doing ANYTHING festive.
So I drove in the -25 below weather to the Westmark Hotel in Fairbanks, which I'd never been to before or seen the inside of.
IT WAS SO SO NICE.
When I finally found the place the room was beautiful..
I felt a tad underdressed as some people wore PROM dresses and like super classy stuff. That's just not me.
But it was a wonderful dinner with some very nice co workers. I've learned that meals here are always very good and veryyyyyy well thought out.
We had halibut and prime rib I think it was.. but it was wonderful.
I didn't stay for the dance, since I didn't have anyone to dance with.. But it was a good time..
I got back into my car and made the long cold trip back home..
I'm glad I went, but it made me miss my coworkers from home. oxoxox.
