Holiday Surprises

This year's Annuity Source Christmas party was filled with surprise after surprise! Every year our party is amazing and wonderful, but this year my boss wanted to keep it a secret as to what we were doing exactly.

She got us all rooms at the Hyatt in downtown Bellevue, and at 5:00 p.m. we checked in to get our first "clue"...these holiday rhymes/clues led us to each new location. There were drinks, appetizers, bowling, dinner at the new John Howie steak house...and probably the biggest surprise of all, an impromptu shopping trip to Nordstrom to pick out a piece of David Yurman jewlery!

Needless to say, we were pretty shocked and excited gals...kind of felt like I was in a movie! Lucky, lucky girls.

TAS gals

The gals I spend my days with! Yep, we're all pretty tan...

We ended the night with our traditional ornament exchange...and if you've been a part of this exchange you know it gets quite competitive. I walked away with cutie I had my eye on all night-- a cupcake in a cake stand ornament!
