#sfr2013 - Drive

You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step. Martin Luther King, Jr.
 Last Wednesday, my sister and I rushed to the Albuquerque Sunport at 4:30 in the morning to catch our early flight to Indianapolis for our annual Scentsy Family Reunion.  Despite running late, (I don't know how that I happened, I woke up at 3am), it was an absolutely awesome trip!

I have been with Scentsy for the past 3 years and I am so grateful that God chose for this to be the company I am building my dreams with.  I never thought I'd be in Indianapolis...but once again I find myself traveling to so many different places with this company!

Opening night was a 60s themed birthday party bash for the owner of Scentsy - Heidi Thompson.  They did a Scentsy Family got talent theme - where consultants performed their talents on the big stage at Lucas Oil Stadium.

Then following the party came the opening session and feature concert of the night!  Kelly Clarkson was our invited guest.  Can I just tell you how much I love her?  She has such a great personality, is so much fun, and the girl can sing!  Thank you Scentsy for spoiling us!

The one major complaint I have about Indianapolis is that their food service industry is not very good!  Downtown is interesting in that it's all kind of connected in a weird maze of underground access through the convention center to the Lucas Oil Stadium and glass overpasses that take you through hotels and across downtown.  I believe you could get around downtown Indy without ever stepping foot outside.  Because Wednesday was a pretty late night, we decided to go to TGI Friday's which was semi-connection to our hotel - the JW Marriott.  We sat down at around 10 pm, and by midnight 4 out of the 5 of us still hadn't received the correct meal we ordered, two of us left without eating whatsoever, and one was given a chicken dish that wasn't what she ordered but finally the waitress got so frustrated with the kitchen staff she just gave her whatever chicken came up first.  Not a good first experience especially when hungry after traveling all day.

There were so many awesome moments of the trip that they definitely outweigh the bad food service we had the first two attempted meals in Indy.  Spending time with our teammates is always a highlight of this trip, and I appreciated actually sharing a room and hanging out together.  This didn't really happen last year in Vegas when we had twice the size of team in attendance but it was Vegas...so you know how that goes!

I'm blessed with the best Sister and Director ever!
These ladies are truly awesome and we made so many memorable moments!  From watching a girl literally run into a sliding glass door at  the mall to FRANCES.....this year will certainly be one we remember!

I also love because it really is like a Family Reunion.  We ran into so many of our Boot Camp sisters and friends we've made over the years.  This amazing Rockstar is a Scentsy Sister I met in Riviera Maya, Mexico last year at our Leadership Retreat.  I am so grateful for friendships that have blossomed over time because of this business. 

Look at all her ribbons! I took mine off because the adhesive wasn't holding, but I didn't have as many as her! Surround yourself with the dreamers AND the doers!
The final night of every convention, Scentsy announces where our next convention will be and what our incentive trip is going to be for the coming selling season! I am so excited about this because I really want to prove to myself that I can work my butt off to achieve an incentive trip - and the other reward is seriously increase my income.  I'd love to be able to take me and h.i.m. on an all expense paid trip to Greece! If you'd like to help a sister out, please consider booking a party with me this Fall!
This is my #doubleyay! (triple yay to be honest)
