Checking in from Arizona & Blog Candy Winner!

Share |
Good morning from Phoenix, AZ!

Last Tuesday, I posted a Blog Candy give-away on my blog, where I asked participants to share their favorite birthday memory. 51 of you left me a comment, and I loved reading everything you shared with me!

I have randomly drawn one winner who wrote the following:

"Oooooh! I can't remember how old I was, but since my birthday is in June, I routinely got pulled from school before it ended for our family vacation to Nova Scotia. I remember sitting in my uncle's dining room eating lobster... MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM"

Congratulations to Christyne (Queen of the Virtual Crop) ! We'll take care of the arrangements to get that ribbon to you when I'm home next week :)

So what am I doing here in Phoenix anyways? I flew in last night, connecting in Detroit with Marika & some friends from Ottawa (Josee & Marlayne) and we made it in to the hotel at 10:30pm local time (1:30am our time), after first having gotten on the wrong shuttle & showing up at the wrong hotel. OIE! To say we're tired is an understatement. But hey, that's why we opted to fly in a day early, so to better accustom our bodies to the wicked time difference. It's nothing a good breakfast, a quickie nap & then dip in the pool can't fix, right?

Today we'll be meeting the entire Founder's Circle group at the Radisson hotel, where we'll enjoy dinner & an overnight stay, before we begin our travels tomorrow to Lake Powell. Said travelling includes lunch and a shopping trip enroute, so you won't hear any complaining from me!

When we arrive in Page, AZ, we'll be staying at the Lake Powell Resort and since my laptop died a slow and painful death last month (and I'm currently working off this hotel's computer), I will probably be out of touch until return to Toronto next week. I'm hoping to cadge some internet time off a buddy's computer, since I might go into email withdrawal if I can't log in at least once a day.

Some of the things on our agenda are the Pyjama Party and Business Share, card swapping, a trip to Stampin' Up!'s new manufacturing facilities with a Make & Take (of course), and a boat tour of Antelope Canyon. I will NOT be doing the helicopter ride that Nancy tried to rubber-arm me into, no way José! Puk, puk, puk.... that's me, a big fat chicken.

Anyhow, enough chit chatting...I'm off to enjoy some much needed R&R with my stampin' gals and I'll be back to you next week. Please leave me a comment so I know you stopped by! :)

Ciao ciao & happy stamping!

Ooh, I'm so jealous, Arizona is one of my dream vacation spots (at least until I see an arachnid the size of my hand...). :-)
Enjoy your well earned break!
