Kicking Booty

by Meghann on July 16, 2009

It was another Mini-Golf Tournament show down in my office today.

This week the Executive Office (my team) was up against the Development Team. My co-worker, John, and I volunteered to be the players for our tea. Well actually we were forced to step in when no one else volunteered. 😉

I have to admit we were a little spooked when the two people we were matched up against from the development team showed up in their golfing best, complete with polo, shorts & shoes, but we managed to hold our own. Apparently, the two of them are weekly golfers and take the sport very seriously. I on the other hand showed up in my pointy red shoes, ready to roll. It was a close, fun game, but in the end John and I managed to kick some Development Team booty and set a new course record of 20 strokes!

We’re going to the semi-finals!

I have to say I have really been enjoying out mini-golf tournament. It’s a great way to bring up company morale and allow everyone to take a breather for 30 minutes out of the week. It’s also good motivation knowing each winner of the winning team will receive a $75 AmEx Gift card!

Right after I kicked booty, I had an Amazing Grass Superfoods Bar to celebrate.

The need for celebration coinsided perfectly with the already laid out plans of Girls Night Out with my co-workers. 🙂

We all met at Brio for some drinks and an early dinner straight from work.

I immediately ordered a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon as soon as I was seated.

I slowly nursed this glass throughout the evening. I have a talent for making one drink last as long as possible, so that no one will question an empty glass that they feel the need to refill.

One of my co-workers ordered a couple of trays of appetizers for the table and was happy to pose with the spread. 🙂

I nibbled on one of the Shrimp Bruschettas while chatting with the co-workers.

It’s always fun to go out with people I work with and hear all of the office gossip. I am pretty sure every office has a past of rumors that is fun to be dug up after a couple rounds of drinks.

When it came time to order the food I wasn’t very hungry, but also knew I would not feel like making anything once I got home so I went ahead ordered the small Chopped Salad along with a cup of the Tomato Bisque.

The salad was great with the right amount of yummy veggies, but the soup was a little heavy for my taste. I could really taste the heavy whipping cream in the soup and it did a number on my stomach. I should have just waited until I got home to eat anything because this meal was just not worth eating out. I went home feeling bloated and yucky.

I tried to walk off the soup when I did make it home, but it didn’t help. I really just wanted something cold to suck on so I pulled an Icee Pop out of the freezer to see if it would help.

It helped a little, but my stomach still feels icky.

I’m glad I went out tonight because I really did have a great time with my co-workers, I am just sad how the soup made me feel afterwards. I learned my lesson though. If I’m not hungry, then I don’t need to order anything.

I think its going to be an early night for me. Hopefully I will feel better in time for my 7 mile run I was counting on in the morning. *fingers crossed*

Harry Potter Mainia

July 16, 2009

It was Harry Potter Mania at the theater last night! I didn’t see anyone crazy enough to be in costume, but the fact that 30 minutes before start time the line to get in the theater wrapped around the building was insanity on its own. The line literally twisted around the building and ours was more »
