Guess What??

I am going to flood my blog with posts today. . . but don't worry-it is only because this is my first day back to blogging since the baby was born :) But I *have* to tell you my big news!

I am going to St George, Utah!!!

Why, you might ask? Because I won an award called Rising Star!

*insert me passing out, and then picking myself back up off the floor*

Here are some of the goodies Stampin' Up! has been sending me to make me feel like a rock star:


Check out that bag! Pink leather baby :)

There is a leather travel wallet, with some super cute luggage tags (that look kinda washed out with the lighting-sorry!), my itinerary for the all expenses paid trip, and a pin for my apron. . .

Love it!


The bag is embossed! It is so gorgeous!

They are also going to send me a Tiffany necklace??? I have *never* had anything from Tiffany before! Someone slap me, because this can not be really happening!

In case you were wondering what Rising Star is, I looked it up in my demo manual. . .

It is awarded to the top 15 first year demonstrators in the United States(I believe three win in Canada) for a balanced approach to their business. There is a point system, which I won't bore you with. . . but how awesome that I am going to Utah! Especially since I didn't get to go to Convention this year. If you don't remember why, refer to the post below this one! ;)

I am so excited!

My upline and good friend called me from Convention to tell me the news. . . I still have the voicemail on my phone. I can't bear to delete it :) I was just sitting there listening to the message, and tears were streaming down my face (okay, I just had a kid so I can't handle excitement without crying :).

My husband looked at me like I was crazy, "Are you crying?!?!?"

He so doesn't get it :)

Or at least didn't until I told him I was 13th in the country and got a free trip amongst other fabulous prizes! I should have told him to equate it to winning on The Price is Right. . .

Don't tell him I told you, but he loves that show.

Speaking of fabulous things. . . my upline also brought me all kindsa fabulous presents from convention as a congratulations gift! Here is the project tote:


I have been using that baby since I got it. . .it is the perfect size! The pattern on the inside is from our Maine Blueberry Designer Series Paper. . .so gorgeous!

And here is the Bella Rose Apron:


How Lovely! She also brought me the Statement of the Heart Stamp, that has the 20 year charm on it. Thank you again, Jen! You are the best!

Anyhoo. . .I am all done talking about me. I just wanted to share some of my excitement with you! (as you can see, I have been yelling thru this entire post ;) I leave a week from Wednesday, and plan on sharing my trip with you if you are interested. . .I will post the details here.
