We conquered the hill!

Hey all,
So I am just writing you a quick post, because last night was Extreme’s 10 year anniversary party, and I just have to say how fun it was!!! It was awesome. No lie. See, honestly, I wasn’t really excited about going because it was going to be a bunch of clients and I don’t know them, ‘cause, well, I don’t work with them so much, but I was super wrong, and had a blast. Let me break it down for you.
So, I left work at 5 and got home and ready for 6 so I could go pick up Joyce. I got to see her new baby too (still waiting on pictures for that post), and she was awful cute! Then we left and made our way to Citadel Hill. When we got there we went in and got our name tags and mingled for a little while (eating what I would say was the best pasta ever). Then the speech began. Paul rocked the house with a nice video, remembering where we came from and what we do. And then Andrew said some nice things about Paul, yadda yadda yadda, and then we watched a video. It was sooo cool. See, we got this company to go out and interview people, asking them what Extreme Group was, and their answers were super funny. Also, they interviewed employees and they all had something interesting to say too. It was really well put together and everyone really liked it. THEN, right after the movie was over, we heard drums coming from the distance and we see like 15 guards in full uniform marching towards us (the theme of the night was “ Attack on Citadel”) and they came up and were like doing there little yelling thing and then shot off 10 guns, and then a cannon!! It was awesome. Everyone was stoked, and thought that was it, but then these other guys come down other stairs and we look and it’s SQUID, the percussion band. I was like peeing my pants, cause I had wanted to see them earlier, but I didn’t buy tickets in time, and now it’s free and it was just wicked. So they did a little set for us, with lots of fun drumming stuff and bagpipes and wow. And then, after they were done, we had a dj brought in with turn tables and we clubbed it up. Yea, it was awesome. I don’t think you’re getting the awesomeness of it. It’ll be better when I get pictures from the photographer. But yea, good times had by all. I left quite early, so I could get home to Josh, but I heard people were there well after 1 am. The end.

Oh, here's a copy of the invitation that was sent, just to give you an idea of what the theme was.

Sniff! Wish I could have been there! It's always a good time at an Extreme event. Is that Gareth being choked by Shawn in that invite??

We haven't been actually inside of Citadel Hill, we didn't know if it was worth the $$$. Maybe we will have to go if it is that cool! BTW, you can borrow one of my babies come December for "maternity leave" I will probably need the help! JK

Oh I got the awesomeness alright! I'm frankly a little jealous... not like way, because I never worked there but I do miss partying (only the singles do it around here... everyone else is pregnant!)
