The wind is whipping around right now so I thought it would be the perfect time to post some pictures from Convention, I am so bad, every year I say I am going to take more pictures and then I don't. Grrrr…
Oh I had to present this year on Balance, so if anyone took any pictures (that I don't look like a dork) during class please send them to me ok? Thanks!
The first night we always go to Benihanas, here is Barb & Rute.
Marcy & Val, had a flight delay and just made it.
Marcy and I, well my big head is in the way, and this is before awards night, can you just imagine?
The other pictures were too dark, we were in two different tables.
Yay! Way to go Rhonda, she earned her first incentive trip to Washington, DC.
My sweet friend Wendi and I chatting it up in the recognition room, wondering how our kids keep getting older and we don't.
We could hold signs of what we had done during the year, didn't think to go back after Awards night and add two more…some girls had other peoples hands holding their signs, like photobombing arms, those were funny!
Some of my girls, wish we could always sit together, but its hard when there is 4K or whatever Demonstrators there, plus I sit up front so I can read lips.
This was too cute, Becky does not like to walk on stage so I had to drag her up there, does she look like she is not having fun? Nope, it does however look like we dressed alike…ha! I'm so excited to be on the Advisory Board with Becky this year, we teased to the other girls that since Becky and I are deaf it will be the loudest speaking Advisory Board ever. Ha!
Susan won a door prize! Yah!
Gabby and I being cowgirls, I loved the way it was all set up.
I snagged this picture from Marcy, we waited in line to chat a bit with Shelli, she is always so gracious with everyone. Hubby Sterling sits to the side and eventually he will move the sign so no one else can get it line, if he does not Shelli would sit there for hours visiting. Gotta love her.
This one is dark, grrrr….Jacque, Barb, Tari, me and Gabby. Fun girltime!
We could do some shopping from the new Holiday catalog, I only needed a few things!!! Hey it was under 50 pounds!!!!
This one I stole from Tari, cause I loved it and I love her!!!
Tari and I
Awards night, Kelli-Sue said stop in the middle and wave, so I did, holding my Founder's Circle purse. Did she know something I didn't know? Cause about half an hour or so later (well really I don't know how long, time kinda stops at awards night)…
…this happened. Winona, Kay, Julie, OMG! Me!!!, Colleen and Becky were all asked to be on the Advisory Board this year, I still seriously shake my head and go, really? Is it real? This is my pointing at Winona cause I was so excited to see her. I know almost all the girls so that makes it a little less nerve wracking. I started a FaceBook group for the 6 of us so we can get to know each other better before the retreat.
To tell you the truth Advisory Board was on my bucket list (in little tiny letters), because it was something I did not have control over…go to Paris, I can do that, go to the see the statue of David, I could do that, but Advisory Board was really out of my hands. So I am so honored, humbled, and excited to do my best to be the voice of the Demonstrators out there. I hope to do everyone proud. Jenny who was on the board last year, hugged me and said "a word of advice, you are a sounding board and not a decision maker", and I loved that advice and will remember it.
Here's a better picture. Note to self, buy shoes with an ankle strap.
So when Shelli said my town and name, Rhonda screamed so loud and hugged me. Love you!!!
My sweet California girls, Susan and Ashley
My flowers a week later, I dried them, not too bad eh? I wonder what it would be like if I got silk leaves to put in there instead of the dried ones. I am a stamper, not a dried flower arranger.
Well that should do it. Thanks for listening so long.
Have an awesome Saturday and thanks for stopping in.
