Though I flew in yesterday, the retreat in St. George, Utah officially began today. It is amazing being with my fellow top-120 US & Canadian achievers. The nicest group of women. We are always greeted at the hotel, that we occupy 100%, with a welcome sign that matches our theme (sorta east coast beachy).
My downline and friend, Sarah Wills, flew in early with me yesterday. Weather prohibited us from going to Zion National Park yesterday but we went today.
Sarah and I hiked to Emerald Pools.
This is the breathtaking scenery on our way back to the park shuttle.
Then back to the hotel where all our buddies were arriving. Stampin' Up! always sets up a Gathering Place where we check in, get our nametags and yearbooks, play Plinko for a prize and eat candy! Here I am with (from left to right): Patty Bennett, our CEO Shelli Gardner, Bonnie Thurber, Pam Morgan, Sarah Wills, Sara Douglass, Cori Hancock, & Selma Galway.
The first night we have a lovely dinner with amazing attention to detail. We were grouped randomly and our group has a name – Myrtle Beach. Here's our table and dinner.
After dinner, I went back to my room really quickly before gathering with my former Advisory Board sisters and I found my 1st "pillow gift": our Make & Take supplies with a never-before-seen stamp set! I can't show the set but I will post samples from it later.
Then I capped off the night with mayhem and madness with these 7 crazy women: Robin Merriman, Jan Wakeland, Meg Wheeler, Sharon Armstrong, Karen Duke, Jodi Reinert & Georgia Giguere.
