Convention High!

Oh my, where do I even start? I honestly do not think I have ever laughed so hard in all my life. I had the time of my life. Each convention gets better and better. Each year as I prepare to go I always think how they could possibly show me anything new. And each year I sit in my seat with my JAW dropped. This year was no different. I think the convention samples this year were outstanding. So what was the best part? As you know I love this company so much, it's because of the many friendships I have made along the way. It really is like a reunion. I loved seeing all my girlfriends and spending GREAT quality time with them. We laughed until tears strolled down our faces. We stamped! We had serious chit chats and we had silly chats. All in all, it was so great to be together. I loved watching my downline sit in awe over convention. I love to see other demos catch the vision and big picture of Stampin' Up! It just makes me smile!
So just what did make us laugh so hard? Here are a few highlights!
*Watching 5 girls figure out how to get out of a parking garage that has a stuck car top carrier on top of the van in the garage! In our pajamas none the less. Traffic backed up and a "he/she" that was totally ticked at me!
*Watching a guy run into a pole on his bike after checking out 5 girls in PJ's!
*Watching Lisa try to figure out how to bake cookies in our room without an oven! PRICELESS!
*Hearing that Vali did a face plant on the sidewalk when it was raining but still managed to keep the umbrella in the up position, meanwhile Kim is running with her ears plugged as she dodges the thunder and lightening. I believe Vali said she ran like a "psycho woman!"
*Denise quote: "Man, I lost my glasses!" Kimberly: "Are they the ones that are on top of your head?"
*Sitting at lunch..."What in God's name is this stuff they call LUNCH?"
*Kim and Vali lost trying to find the van to put more money in the meter. Again, walking in our pj's.
*Laughing so hard in class we almost got in trouble.

Most inspiring:
*Awards night watching three of my friends get #4, 30, and #71 for Top Demonstrators. I screamed so hard my throat hurt. I am so proud of them.

Lastly, saying goodbye to all my girlfriends just plain and simple SUCKED! I also had to say goodbye to my local girlfriend as she was moving as well. The positive side, I will see them in 6 months at Leadership! I am already counting down the days! I can't wait!

So, if you did not attend convention... I highly recommend you start a convention fund. I strongly recommend you go. Not only do you learn GREAT things but you could possibly meet your best friend there. It truly was a fabulous time!
I do have creative stuff to share, although my computer is not being photo friendly. I will try again tomorrow to upload some fun pics at convention as well as a few projects.
Thanks for listening to me ramble!
