Party like it's 1989

This weekend my work threw an appreciation dinner for all us employees. They do one every year and this year we got to go!! The theme was 80's prom, well it was supposed to be 80's prom but all the people at our salon decided we wanted to just dress up in crazy 80's stuff instead of prom and it was pretty funny!! We looked way cooler I will say! Anyway we had a whole lot of fun.. At these parties they do an awards ceremony and contests and everyone drinks a lot.. well everyone except for us :) and then there is dancing which gets pretty wild by the end of the night! I even won an award this time!! All the awards are just big jokes and I got the award for the biggest partier which is funny because everyone knows we don't drink and so it's just a huge joke now. It was pretty funny! but all together we had a really good time! We hope we get to do it again while we are here! Just to give everyone a quick update on what we are doing.. Preston just finished his 2 quarter of school and is finishing his finals this week. He is glad for a break from school and I have just droped my monday shifts at work so I am only working 4 days a week now instead of 5. It will be really nice I just hope I dont get to bored! Tonka recently got nudered and is doing really well!! He is still growing a ton but we are happy he is a good dog! We still have no idea where we will be going when Preston graduates so that news will come at another time. Other than that life is pretty normal! My best friends coming out here for a visit in 2 weeks and it can't come fast enough! We are a really blessed family and I am grateful everyday for everything our savior has given us!
