Well what a whirlwind of a holiday I have had!! I did take my laptop with me with the idea that I would update my blog while I was away. As you can see that so did not happen! Also while we were away my grandma (94) had a fall and is in hospital in Ipswich so I drove up there yesterday to visit add to this that I have come back with some nasty lurgy and haven’t been feeling great so again haven’t really been up to updating my blog. Sorry guys I know you are dying to find out all about it!! So here goes. (warning this could be long!)
Now you know how bad I am at taking photo’s but I have tried my hardest and managed to take a few!!! But the ones I didn’t think to get I’m sure have been captured by some others and I will direct you over to their blogs to take a sticky beak!!
So I figure I best start at the beginning and tell you all about our incentive trip!! As it was in Noosa Neil and I were lucky enough to be able to drive so that meant no departure schedule and no baggage allowance…Alright!!! So we hit the road about 10am and decided to stop in at the Eumundi markets, such a short drive and we had never been so that was fantastic to wonder around leisurely without having to worry about losing the kids!!
Once we arrived at the Sheraton we were booked into our suite……..Yeap you heard me we had a suite. 2 queen beds in one room and a king size bed in the other! Total luxury. Then we headed down to the hospitality desk to see the Stampin’ Up! girls. Janiel is the most awsome organiser you will ever meet she plans everything with such presision it is scary. (more about that later) Her very trusty and extremely helpful side kick this year was Angie and she was just gorgeous. As we were sitting there chatting who do you think walked in? Shelli and Sterling, It was so nice to see them both again and sit down and visit (as Shellie says) for a while!
Next we headed down to the surf club to join my bestest mates Nicki and Vicki for a spot of lunch!
As you can see they have defiantely turned the weather on for us it was so warm and the sun was out! Just gorgeous!!! On our way back to the hotel we did a spot of retail therapy and then back for a little nap and some unpacking before dinner!
Stampin’ Up! had organised gorgeous welcome drinks and dinner for us! It was so nice to all get together and catch up! On our table we had Linda Higgins and Georgina Martin, Makeesha and Rod Byl, Nicki and Dave Tidbold and obviously myself and Neil!
These are the touches that Janiel adds to make things just so special!
Check out Keesha’s blog for photo’s us at dinner, she’s also got a view of the pool area over there!!
Those of you who know me well know that the one thing I like better then stampin is chocolate so of course this is where my camera came out….
Look at this for desert yummo!! There were more deserts than I could manage to try but they all looked so cute don’t you reckon!! We then went and had a drink in the bar before turning in for the night. Of course in true Stampin’ Up! style there was a pillow gift in our room! Of course no photo but again Makeesha has a photo of it as does Marelle on her blog.
I was so excited to see a handmade card with the gift and you’ll never guess it was made by Shelli and she had personally written in it. I will take a photo and post it tomorrow along with the highlights of day 2!!
Well I hope I haven’t put you to sleep and I promise I’ll come back again soon
