It took all day to get from the Northwest tip of the United States all the way down to the Southeast point of the country… but boy is it going to be worth it!
The sun was rising when we got to the airport… and the plane headed to our stop over destination, Phoenix was PACKED. I was surprised given it was early in the morning on a wednesday, but then all it took was one look at the people on the plane and I knew why….
DUH! The Superbowl is happening on Sunday in Glendale, AZ so the plane was filled with blue and green and adorable outfits like this toddler’s 12th man cape. He even had the seahawks logo buzzcut into his hair!
Our intrepid crew (me and some of my Fun n’ Crafty downline – Beatie B and Kathy T) had fun (and naps) on our many hours of plane time!
Already on the airplane I met new Stampin’ Up demonstrators… at the airport I met my friend Karina Chin from Edmonton, AB Canada and we all headed to our hotel to check in and grab some dinner.
Being west coast time had its perks in that we weren’t starving yet… but then the downside when we realized we had only just started eating and it was 10pm already! I still harbor the delusions that I’ll actually get sleep before and during a Stampin’ Up event. ha ha ha!
But as the sun sets on our travel day, it is so awesome to be back with crafting friends and I can’t wait to see what the day will bring as we kick off the Leadership convention in just a few hours!
