 And we played the SARAN WRAP GAME!!! I took a bunch of Stampin' Up! product and wrapped it up to look like this:

One person rolls the dice until they get doubles while the person on their right unwraps as much as they can. Everyone got to keep what they unwrapped - it was super fun!!! I also made this for the party I hosted Saturday afternoon at our family Christmas. I picked up 10 different things from the dollar store (candy, slimy fling toys, etc.) and let the little kids play - they loved it too!

 Wishing you all a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY & HEALTHY NEW YEAR!

Fun from the Centre/On Stage in Milwaukee!!!

DSCN9918

 

This last weekend was a busy one for me!!!  Friday I headed down to Milwaukee...stopped to take my favorite brother out to lunch.  Poor guy broke his heel back in August, had surgery and is expected to be off work until sometime next spring - EEEKKKKK!!! It was good to see him! Then I hit the crazy highway traffic and made my way downtown for the Stampin' Up! event.  Stampin' Up! held big events all over the world this past weekend...all at the same time!!!  They were in Milwaukee, San Diego, Baltimore, Dallas, two places in Canada, Brussels and two places in Australia!!! HOLY COW!!!

DSCN9919

 

Friday night was a dinner/meeting for leaders in the company...and we were welcomed by these gorgeous table settings and flowers - I LOVE Stampin' Up!  They always do everything first class and make us feel like Queens!

DSCN9921

 

Everyone at the Friday event were presented with a super nice calendar/notebook and then this Embellishment Case - HOW PRETTY!!!

DSCN9929

 

Yep - it was stacked with all kinds of embellishments!!! WHOO HOO!!!!

DSCN9930

Here's my friend Dawn - trying to make you jealous with this scrumptious chocolate cake!!!

DSCN9922

 And my good friend BJ from Minnesota - she was a presenter at the Saturday event - I heard she killed it!!!  Unfortunately, I was asked to be a presenter at this event too and had to decline...sniff sniff...because I have to organize and attend a big meeting once a quarter for my "other" job...and this past Saturday just happened to be it! BOOOOOO!!!!

12231689_10208045775564657_1348442330_n

One of my wonderful demonstrators sent me this photo from the Saturday event...I was recognized for achieving my $500,000 career sales milestone in October. Missed the opportunity to SASHAAAAA  across the stage....DANG!!!!

12250035_1059379160752826_4529008694019814561_n

 

I wish I had more photos to share with you...but I don't!  I PROMISE I will next time!

 

PS - someone emailed me today (not my customer) to tell me that they were offended by my Weekly Deals Joke of the Day.  I have received many emails telling me these jokes are a bright spot in their day. I will not apologize...these jokes are funny...if something in that joke offended you...this is not the BLOG FOR YOU!

I have to apologize - things got super busy on my Stampin' Up! trip to Disney and I didn't have time to post anymore photos and then when I got home...well you know how that goes when you come back from a vacation!
So here's a few more photos from my FREE trip:
Epcot
102_4984
The Safari at Animal Kingdom was my favorite - we actually went on the Safari two mornings in a row! Here's the truck we rode in.
102_5229
These rhinos were right there...walking around...you can see the side of our truck in the bottom right of the photo.
102_5241
The Gorilla was not out in the open - I loved him!
102_5050

Disney - Day 2

Day 2 of our adventure was a little more laid back then the shark fishing trip.  Here's our room - it's soooo nice!

102_4855

102_4856

This was my pillow gift from day 1 - this personalized bag was filled with Disney snacks!

102_4857

This is soooo funny!  Disney is the place where "dreams come true!"  And that certainly was the case today for little Miss Hailey...she's obsessed with Dippin' Dots - it's her all time favorite!  Let's just say when they went out of business at our local mall - it was a relief for me!  But there's an entire store dedicated to these delicious little balls of ice cream in Kissimee and we had to go pay it a visit...She got 2 larges, a bracelet and a T-shirt - LOL!  

102_4871

102_4863

This is the Boardwalk right by our resort.

102_4887

A little pool time before we hit the park.

102_4892

I just had to throw in a creative photo - from the hospitality room.  Someone from our group brought this amazing piece of art to share.

102_4913

We hit Hollywood Studios for some thrilling rides on Tower of Terror and Aerosmith's Rockin' Roller Coaster - what a BLAST!

102_4918

And last but not least - my pillow gift for day 2!  SU gave all of us these great cups!!!  And a sun visor for me.

Off to Disney World!!!

It was pretty rough...but I got up at 3:00am on Sunday morning to get ready and head to Milwaukee for the Stampin' Up! incentive trip to Disney World!  Had to get my nails done (HAD TO...the wallpaper killed them!) and what could possibly be more fitting than this???

102_4754

Hailey and Austin were full of energy (urghhh) as they battled on the ping pong table at the airport.

102_4755

Austin's mom, Lisa is with us too!  We arrived at the Boardwalk Resort and promptly jumped into a rental car to head to Cocoa Beach for an afternoon of sun and fun.  Then off to Cape Canaveral for a sharking fishing adventure...and what an adventure it was!!!  Here's Austin and his mom.

102_4765

Austin with the 1st of 6 sharks that he and Hailey caught that night!

102_4786

If you've ever had a large fish on your line - you can imagine how hard these sharks fought!

102_4791

Hailey with Captain Brad and her 1st shark!

102_4810

What a beautiful sunset - that's Cocoa Beach in the background and there were people swimming right THERE while we were catching sharks!  I may never swim in the ocean again!!!

102_4813

102_4833

This was the largest shark the kids landed!

102_4842

We were pretty exhausted when we arrived back at the resort - but it was all worth it!!! 

Poor Lisa - as soon as we got to the fishing area - she spent the rest of the night right here - doing "you know what" over the side - sicker than a dog!  I knew things were going downhill for her when she asked the captain - "if someone was to get sick - where should they do that at?"  Bless her heart - she never once asked the kids to end their shark adventure!

102_4811


I'll try to post again tomorrow - I'm beat.  After a morning of running around and playing in the pools - we hit Hollywood Stuidos for some fun in the evening!
