Retreat Recap

Dillman's Bay Resort on White Sand Lake, Wis.
Another year, another office retreat, another business plan, and another arsenal of fond memories. Now, I wouldn't go so far as to call it "paradise" like the stairs to the dock proclaimed, but it wasn't as bad as I expected. In fact - gasp - it was kind of fun. Highlights:
  • After a hot 'n heavy rendez-vous with whiskey, a coworker proclaimed - no less than fifty times - that she's "pretty [expletive deleted] smart" and has "pretty [expletive deleted] smart ideas." (I'm not sure if she remembers this and I'm not one to bring it up. Yet.)
  • We played the board game Battle of the Sexes and explained to the men that the number in a bra size (e.g. 32, 34, 36) does not refer to the cup size. (Only in their dreams.)
  • I spent lazy mornings wading in the lake - and subsequently ripped a leech off my toe. Gross.
  • Plenty of nature to tide me over for another year. (That leech did me in.)


  1. The leech did me in, and I want even there! Not too big on nature, though. Other than that it doesn't sound too bad :)

  2. ok, i would freak out about the leech! and at least there was alcohol involved!

  3. ewww.. a leech? I bet you are glad you are home :)

  4. Still more fun than spending the day under florescent lighting though, right?
    Leeches are why I never much cared for lakes, so gross!!

  5. ahhh a leech! icky! good luck with the rest of retreat!


  6. ohhh leech? OMG....ufff...The photos look amazing!

    ps: I am hosting a really cute GIVEAWAY, so please join in:)

  7. Im not a nature girl either Jessica! Once in a blue moon is good for me, my husband wishes it wasnt so! What do you do, that you still do office retreats? pretty nice idea!

  8. Sounds relaxing (except for the leech part)! and it's always good to have some good drunken stories about coworkers in the archives :) xoxo

  9. Ouch seriously a leech? That's definitely enough nature for me!

  10. Love the little squiral pic! That is FUN-ny about your coworker! And MEN! Sheesh, how can they not know that?

    and a big fear of mine! Yet unrealized...I hope it stays that way!

    heart: Miss Furnellie

  11. ahahah laughed out loud at the bra size explanation. MEN!

  12. Ok, the leech totally did me in too! But that last photo is really pretty! Glad it wasn't too bad.
