MEDIEVAL MADNESS!!

I love Christmas parties! This year at work we had an awesome event. I am part of eClub which helps put on events for the employees of Ceridian (where we work.) This includes the big annual holiday party! There is about 450 employees at our specific building but Ceridian is all over! For those of you that don't know, Keven and I work at the same company. We file payroll taxes for big corporations like Coca Cola, Yankees, and we signed on Reebok, Google and Adobe...just to name a few! We are a bulk filer for all of these companies and basically do any changes to W2's, notices from the IRS or state agencies, make deposits to agencies, etc. etc. etc. ANYWAY, I love the people we work with...to name the obvious...KEVEN! But besides the fact, the peeps are the coolest. We had SO much fun at this event. Oh...I guess I haven't mentioned where we spent this years Fiesta! The past couple years, we've had it at the Hyatt hotel down by the beach. This has been awesome, however we knew people wanted a change so we took it to MEDIEVAL TIMES! That's right...jousting, horses, and men in tights being very...well, not manly (at least for me!) I've never been there before so I was excited to go on the companies dime! There were SO many raffles and prizes...I was hoping to win the flat screen, but of course...that was a negative! The entertainment was cheesy, but of course I had fun because well...I am cheesy! There were 5 of us girls that sat together and we got front row! We were the red knight and he won the most!! I think it's because he had awesome cheerleaders!! By the end of the day, our voices were totally gone! I loved it!!Funny story about this! So this was the first picture that they try to make you buy. Well it was $10 EACH and we were like...uh...no thanks. So I took a picture of the picture! It turned out SO good! ha! We were laughing so hard because the waitress lady caught us! whoops! What?! They never said don't take a picture of the picture! We even read the fine print!Here we are sporting our red flags! Our guy friends were on the green team and we beat them! ha! It was so fun to boo their knight and screem for ours! Here's Judy, Linh, Vickie, me and Kiera.Here's Vickie, Kiera and me posing in front of the horse. Another funny story...I didn't realize there was a glass there. hahah! I totally rammed my head into the window! We were laughing so hard because I tried to play it off. A guy totally pointed out that he saw where I hit my head because there was a grease spot! hahahaha! sick!We were screaming because they put the red light! Go Red! Here's the prince being taken away or someting...Here are the knights!Our red knight had a crush on Kiera! He gave her two flowers!! He had this really annoying grin that he thought he was all sexy, but he was not!Me and the Vickster! She just came back a week before because she was on maternity leave! We were so happy she could come!!
Vickie and her big A chicken! Look at that thing! Everyone got a chicken that size (except the vegetarians of course). It also came with a potatoe, rib, garlic bread, soup and dessert. Yes, a lot of food! and Yes, I did get two pieces of garlic bread from Linh and she gave me her dessert! haha...leave me alone!We had such a fun event this year! I'm excited for next years planning!
