Yesterday seemed like a whirlwind. We were going nonstop. We had a scavenger picture hunt to do for Marsh's Christmas party. I was really excited about doing it because the prizes were really good. As in: 2 days vacation for Marsh, a digital camera, a Wii, golf passes, and a year membership to a gym. This was no ordinary scavenger hunt. We had a list of items, places, people, etc that had different point values. We had to take pictures with as many points as we could and submit the best three. We ran all around trying to find different stuff for the pictures. I was running like a mad woman around Walmart and we were fighting crowds at the Dollar Store to try to get items for this hunt. (Much like chickens with their heads cut off.) Our apartment was a disaster when we left as our the pictures with the most items we took at home. Then it was time to get going and head to Salt Lake to check into our hotel. We were running an hour later than we wanted to, and the 2nd picture we took at a park in Salt Lake didn't end up turning out. Our third picture we took just minutes before we had to be down to dinner for the party. Marsh and I both felt a little bummed, like we probably wouldn't win anything since we were only submitting 2 pictures, and we'd worked so hard to try to get them to work, and spent so much time. Crazy stress just for a scavenger picture hunt!
The hotel was incredibly nice. His company paid for everything while we were there which was cool. We even got valet parking when we arrived!
Probably the nicest one I've ever stayed at, very mod. Here is Marshall & I just before we went down for dinner.
Dinner was great! We had crab cakes as appetizers, salads, yummy steak and potatoes for the entree, and some sort of cherry chocolate brownie mousse cake for dessert. Not to mention there was a huge table with sushi, fresh fruits and vegetables, shrimp, chocolate covered strawberries and more. The food was soooo good. After we'd been there a couple hours, they did the photo scavenger hunt prizes. It was hilarious seeing some of the pictures people took. And after it was all said and done, we ended up with 2nd place! Whoa! Our pictures were that good and Marsh and I were beyond excited. The lady who won first prize ended up taking the vacation days so we are the new proud owners of a Wii!!! It's the sports edition and we have yet to play it but we are SO super excited. They had a dance after that and it was so much fun too. It reminded me a little of my high school days when I loved and went crazy at high school dances. Marshall has some pretty sweet moves too, he's been holding out on me. We finally went up to our room at 11, since Avry & Maeli were up there with the boys. (Thank you thank you again Avry!!)
This morning we had vouchers for breakfast at the nice restaurant in the lobby. Then we headed home. I can't help but feel we are very blessed for the company Marshall is working with. He is treated really well, there is tons of room for growth, bonuses, and leadership opportunities, and he has some great co-workers.
Oh, and in case you were wondering, here are the 2 pictures we submitted for the photo scavenger hunt.....(totally random, I know.)
