I just earned the annual Stampin’ Up! incentive trip to Hawaii!!!!!!!! We have from July 1 through June 30 to earn it in one of five different ways and as of last night, when the February stats closed, I did it!!! Earliest that I’ve ever clinched it. First year (Panama Canal) I earned it in May, second time (Bermuda) I got it at the very last minute in June so this time earning it as of February is early. Since the quality of the room is assigned chronologically by when you earn it, I’m hoping for some swanky digs!

Details: the trip is March 22-27, 2009. Location is the Hilton Waikoloa Village resort, located on the Kohala coast of Hawaii’s Big Island. There’s a dolphin pool and hand’s-on area on site as well as boats going thru canals inside the resort and even a Swiss tram that looks like Disneyland’s Monorail but on the ground. Super cool! We’ll be taking our two younger children as a special treat. Their older sis, Doug and I have all been to Hawaii (sister goes again April 10) but they haven’t been nor has Matt (I do not feel sorry for him in the slightest as he’s hiking in the mountains above Rome today!).

Phew – the monkey is now off my back on this one. Time to relax, regroup and get myself pumped for the trip to Bermuda this March 27!

Look how gorgeous this place is!
