Culture of Awesomeness ~ Wine ~ Chocolate ~ Holiday Celebration

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker United Realtors® ~ 512.750.6899

That's a wrap for another Coldwell Banker, Northwest office girl's only Christmas party! Once again one of the best parties of the season with plenty of fun, laughter and mischief!

Admission to our annual party requires 3 things: an appetizer, desert, salad or whatever, a bottle of wine (most important) and a wrapped gift of approximately $25.

Mixing and mingling with our colleagues during the holidays (who in our culture of awesomeness are also friends) is always a hilarious time! Numbers are drawn and the fun begins! #1 gets first pick and also picks any gift at the end that is not frozen. Gifts are frozen after being stolen 3 times. We all make sure to bring desirable gifts from sexy lingerie, wine, Christmas pillows, blankets, jewelry etc. We steal gifts as fiercely as we negotiate for our clients..... Always done with humor and respect!

Our office comes from abundance not scarcity so our motto is "work as hard as you play!"

Never, ever underestimate the importance of having fun!"  Randy Pausch

That last quote is music to my ears--which is why we were in Utah skiing midweek, before the crowds,

It does this look like a fun party. I enjoyed the video slideshow too - it fills in the blanks. We do an adult gift exchange like this one with our family on Christmas day - it's always a blast.  I'm so happy to see you enjoying the festivities during this special time of year.

I just had one such party this evening, with the white elephant ornament exchange too, Dorie! We have SO much fun with these get togethers!

And, I LOVE your motto and totally live by it too, " "work as hard as you play!"

Yes, Yes, YES!
