I got a heads-up in the mail that I’d be getting ‘onstage recognition,’ so I was really nervous, excited, and anxious to find out exactly what this was all about!
When I arrived in Tulsa, I was waiting for the hotel shuttle, when I got this picture in a text from my upline leader and dear friends who were already at the hotel:
If you don’t know, my youngest daughter has this crazy genetic condition where she can’t be in the sun, so we never go swimming outside, or do much of anything outside during the day. So, to see this picture, and to know that I could go chill OUTSIDE by a POOL, well, I may or may not have hurried along the nice shuttle driver. 😉
30 minutes later…
Best. Day. EVER!
This Convention had many, many amazing moments for me, but this peaceful time in the pool before all the official fun started, well, this was one of my favorite moments. I also got seriously burnt, but y’know what, I didn’t care! When I think of Convention, I think of relaxing in this pool… aaaahhh! Okay, onto more pictures!
The first night was a special reward for President’s Club members. We were treated to dinner and then a fun painting class. Now, I know this doesn’t sound very cool, and honestly, I thought it wouldn’t be very fun, but it was AWESOME! They blasted 80’s music while we created our masterpieces!
Friday night was the glitzy Awards Night!
We got to meet PETER USBORNE!!
And I found out what that postcard was all about!
It was pretty unbelievable, and it would NOT have happened without an incredible team and motivating leadership from Godly women!
What a year! And what a blessing these women have been to me and my family! Wow!
Saturday was the final day of Convention, and it was time for the big announcement –
the next TRIP DESTINATION!
This year, we’re going to Ireland! We leave in just a couple of weeks, and I never in my wildest dreams imagined I’d earn a company trip – and for TWO, so my handsome hubby gets to come for free, too! Each year at Convention, the next trip destination is revealed, and we were all ready to finally find out!
We were treated to another fancy dinner Saturday night, where we heard some great testimonials. My favorite was from the college-aged son of one of the directors, who talked about growing up a ‘UBAM kid.’ He loved being surrounded with books, going on the company trips with his family, and learning how to set goals and have a good work ethic. WOW! Pretty much everyone had a tear in their eyes when he was finished. It was very moving, and I was very blessed by him.
The evening ended with a dance party that lasted long into the night!
Usborne National Convention was such a blessing to me. I left inspired, motivated, and refreshed after some much-needed quality girl time!
