Are we 20 something?

This weekend was one of the funnest weekends in a long time.

It was our company's long awaited Christmas party (yes, a little early). Each year, the boss invites all of us and our families to Whistler. For those of you who are not familiar with Whistler, here's a hint: it's where part of the 2010 Winter Olympics will be held, they are co-hosting with Vancouver.

It's a winter wonderland resort, about 1.5 hours away from here.

Each year he splurges on this fantastic trip and we all look forward to it. This year was especially great since all of us were either newlyweds or recently engaged. So we were looking forward to spending some quality time with some adults our age.
On Friday night after we got there we took care of
business first:
1. Check into the suite.
2. Go to village and find booze.
Once we've successfully completed our mission in the village, we headed back to the hotel for the hot tubs outside. It felt like frostbite on my feet just walking to them outside -remember it's snowing in Whistler- but once inside the hot tub, all was well.

Here is where we stopped acting like 30-somethings and turned back into 20 year olds.
Someone mentioned a small get together in room 619. Sure we went.
And here are some picture from this very mature event:

The girls before we got hammered. After a lot of drinks looked like a frat party

Us girls sitting on one of the girls husbands after one too many drinks. And here is a close up of the poor guy's face in case you missed it

Jp had the girls going wild for him

We went back to our room around 3am, in pretty rough shape.
I wish I had a picture to describe what happened next. I passed out on the bed, while JP was in the bathroom brushing his teeth. By the time he came back out, I guess the distance to the bed seemed too long, because he only made it half way there.

He woke up in the middle of the night to find himself -still fully clothed- halfway on the bed. His head and torso had reached the end of the bed, but sadly the rest of him didn't. He woke up with the lower part of his body still kneeling on the floor, beside the bed.

Now that is drunk.

OH - that is drunk!!!! Hahahaha... sounds like my kind of party :) What a perfect weekend to be in Whistler with all that new snow - lucky you.

Thanks for letting me know that gangster was as near as PC - now, it's for sure he will have headed for Surrey and the border instead of going east. GREAT - thanks, I'm going to sleep easier... Luckily Hugo is grandma-sitting so I'll be okay :)

Heather - Poor guy drinks maybe once or twice a year, and so when he drinks, it shows, haha..

Awesome Mom - It was a lot of fun, but I'm very glad that we don't stay up that late every night, we were beat the next day.

Our bodies just don't have the stamina we used to have I'm afraid.LOL.

Oh goodness. I am so glad I dont drink now. .LOL.. Glad to hear you had fun though. Who watched the kids while you went out like that?? I am nosy but I just get curious. Great photo's though also.

Sayre said...

I must be getting old - I don't think I would be able to function at all after a night like that...

I.A.M.L. said...

Queen - we had a great time! Wish you would've been there. I saw how you party :-) You would've fit right in.

Tweets - The kids were with their dad this weekend. My boss was actually kind enough to schedule our christmas party around my custody schedule, so we could attend.

Sayre - we're too old for this too, trust me ;-)

tweetey30 said...

Sorry to be nosy.. LOL. Glad you had fun though. It must have been great to get away for the weekend.

I.A.M.L. said...

Tweets - you are not nosy, it's okay :-)

Eileen said...

Well, um, I'm really glad I don't have to experience the morning after any more.
Your pics of mountains really made me miss it there. I'm feeling a bit 'homesick' these days, that cheered me up a bit.
It's great that you have a boss who considers your schedule. My work holiday dinner, at my boss', is on a 'me' weekend. Had to get a sitter for it.
It's also very nice to see how well you get along with your co-workers, and how much JP fits in.
More pictures, please!

Ann(ie) said...

OMG. I want to come next time. I'll buy my own booze and I don't live far from Whistler. =) What fun!!! I love the pictures. We all need to release like that from time to time, even as grownups. You have a hella cool boss and a cutie pie hubby, you lucky girl.


I.A.M.L. said...

Eileen - I know you don't drink, but this was a great time :-)

We miss you too, you know, it's not just one sided.

Annie - I had no idea you lived in my neck of the woods? This gets my little mind

HamiHarri said...

Aw - it looked like you had an awesome time! I've never been to Whistler...but after seeing your pics I need to go ASAP!

Lisa said...

Are you waiting for me to comment before you post again or what?? lol

Yeah ok, so I shoulda commented a couple of weeks ago when I first saw those pics...especially the sitting on the guy's face one lol

Looks and sounds like you all had a terrific time together, not to mention a hell of a lot of fun. Bring on the next christmas getaway I say!

(Ok, I've finally commented now...time for an update yeah? lol)
