What a day it has been! With butterflies in my stomach (okay, I was totally naucious), my good friend and roomate, Chari and I headed to the awards booth. I knew I had awards for sales and recruiting and the cruise, but that is where they also whip out the "special bags" which mean you have won one of the "BIG AWARDS" for the nighttime ceremony that calls you up individually in front of 5600 other demonstrators...and guess what? I GOT ONE!!!! I totally cried and was soooooooooooooo happy!!! This is a huge deal--I will get an additional trip (beyond my Hawaii trip) and a cash award and of course this beautiful leather bag. This has been a true DREAM of mine for a few years now and I am just beyond words that it finally happened!!! Tomorrow night is the ceremony where I find out where I placed and in which category (there are several)...I'll keep you posted!!
Here is when I watched my SAM (my Stampin Up rep at the home office that helps me run my business) go behind the curtain to get the bag....I screamed and about 30 ladies behind me in line screamed for me....actually I am not sure I screamed--I think I cried mostly!!
So, THANK YOU so much ladies--each of you has helped me realize my dreams and I am so thankful to have this opportunity!! Last year our theme was Dream Big, I did and wow, that dream came true!! I am just SO VERY EXCITED, I can't even tell you!!
Thanks so much for helping me make my dreams come true!!!!
