Merry Christmas from Shell

So Brandons Christmas party was yesterday. Brooke and Mik watched the boys for us and brandon and I got a night on the town. It was such a blast. We had a lot of fun. I love his company parties because it's an excuse for me to dress up. I guess I'm still a big kid. I love buying the new dress and doing my hair and makeup and watching brandon walk in and look at me and smile- that makes it all worth it. I love going downtown amidst the huge buildings and cool architecture and all the lights. I really am a city girl. I adore it. Cocktails started at 6:30 and dinner was at 7:30. I love that they come out in tuxes and offer you really pretty appetizers- it just thrills me that they look cool. I love ordering my virgin drinks and once again how fun they always look. My personal fav is a shirly temple. Orange juice soda water and cherry syrup with a cherry. My dress this year had a little 20's flair along with my headband that had feathers and some netting. I'm in love with it. I also love when Brandon gets dressed up. He looks amazing in a suit and I love when he smells good. Not that he dosn't smell good other times :) so we go into dinner and sit at table 16. The party was held at the Chamber of Commerce Building this year. It's a very old building in Calgary with a lot of charm. It was built in the 1800's. I really love it's character. I took pictures of the moldings and lights cause I thought they were cool.( thpictures don't do it justice really- I needed better light) You also ride in a very old elevator to get there- it kind've feels like hollywoods tower of terror! So Cool! Dinner was excellent- my favorite part was the red pepper soup- it was delicious. They had salmon and veggies rolls beef salad bread- and the butter was really really pretty! Can you tell I just love this. It's fun to talk with the other traders and schedulers and hear what they say about Brandon- it always amuses me. They call him Brando and Jonesy because his ring tone is Indiana Jones- which is a very important movie to us ;) We had a wonderful time listening to the jazz band- which was really good this year I have to say-eating the food(in peace may I add) was wonderful- and just being together made the night very special for me- we need more nights out- it was incredible to have a night to ourselves- we owe you Brooke and Mi k- so returning the favor! so nice to just be with Brandon alone- I'm still head over hills for the man!- he probabally won't appreciate my cheesiness.:) eh knew what he was getting into when he married me- that's all I have to say!
