Mopey Monday

I've been battling a darn cold for the past few days. Last night was horrendous and I will spare you the details. Ew & Ugh to say the least. :( We did have our annual holiday party this past Saturday and it was quite fun! Well, as much fun as a sick person can have. :) This year employees got to bring their families (not just spouses) and the it was a carnival theme that included; carnival games, pony rides, bouncy houses, popcorn, cotton candy, hot dogs, live music by local band Nuff Sedd, psychic stations, massage stations, prize giveaways (I got a GC to Melting Pot, yum!), a festive holiday dinner, and even a train ride on the Lahaina Sugar Cane train that took us to and from the carnival location. It was a fun afternoon. After the party we visited with our friend Tasha and her Ohana.  They're visiting from Redding, CA.  She has the best and most adorable baby boy, Jed. He is a gem! As soon as I met him I fell in love with him. She is such a great mother.. it's crazy to think how grown up we are now; married and with kids (well, she has the kid, not me, not yet at least!!) Tasha and I have known eachother since elementary days.. so it's been about 20 years of friendship! Wow! It's great to be able to still be so close to friends from your childhood.  Some people grow apart, but I'm glad such a beautiful woman like Tasha, remains in my life. :)

I'm feeling woozy again, so I must end it here. Hope everyone is having a better Monday than me.. drinking lots of fluids and plopped on my bed resting is where I will be... :) Take care lovlies oh and don't forget to enter my ciellestar giveaway (see below post), you have till the end of the week!!

Love, S

p.s. Here is the only pic we took on Saturday at my company holiday party.. I look a mess, ha ha!! but that train ride was fun! :)
p.p.s. and here is the lovely Pooma sporting one of her winter coats. She's so stylish isn't she?!
