A steak dinner with corn hole games, and a lotta laughter...

I'm pretty sure the cattlemens association is loving me right now. I've enjoyed steak for the past three nights. It wasn't planned to be that way, but I'm not complaining.

Monday night after work, we hung around to enjoy a steak dinner while all the sales reps were in town. We really only get to see all the guys twice a year, which is a shame because they are always fun to have around.

Somehow I roped myself into being in charge of getting everything ready for the social. Friday I took care of purchasing everything but the steaks. Yep, that's right... they turned me loose with the AMEX card. Ha! Feeding a large group of people can be a task, but I had fun getting everything ready.

After lunch on Monday, I started preparing the food. We had baked beans, baked potaoes, rolls, and salads to prepare. And since we were cooking for a large crowd, I solicated the help of my girl, Tonya!

We washed, rubbed olive oil and wrapped 22 individual potatoes... you could say we put a lot of love into the process.


While we were waiting on everything to finish cooking, and the steaks to come off the grill... we enjoyed destressing from the day with laughter, corn hole games, and some chose to partake in a few beverages. Enjoy the photos from the night...

These are the girls who keep me sane throughout the day...

Stiff competition around these parts...

See... I told you they were destressing...

The guys took up eating just about anywhere...

Lots of conversations happening throughout the night...

While the corn hole game was going on, you had to have protective head gear.

We had a great time socialing with our reps from all three branches, and getting a moment to just relax, and enjoy each other's company. Of course none of this would have been possible without our owner/president, Thomas. He makes working for this company fun, and worth it!
