OK, so here's a recap of my few days at Convention.
I flew into Salt Lake on Wednesday, August 15th. We hung around and headed to the Scentsy Success tailgate party. Wednesday was fluff day compare to the next couple...
Everything started bright and early on Thursday. Here we are at the Convention Center. Everyone is excited to see Heidi and Orville, to learn of any changes, to see the new products for the fall and winter, etc, etc. At one point I felt like we were on Oprah when she does her Favorite Things show. When they started showing us the new products for Fall/Winter, UPS employees started wheeling out carts with FREE stuff for us. We got warmers, room sprays, plug-ins, and the new travel tins!!!
This is Adie Mitchell. I LOVE Adie because she's hilarious and has no problem laughing at herself. She is one of the first consultants for Scentsy and is now a SuperStar Director. I was so excited to meet her in person and to chat with her a bit.
2009 marks 5 years for Scentsy. On Thursday night we had a big birthday party to commemorate it all. They had a Cirque d'Baserque. It was AWESOME. There was food everywhere. And they had Dr Pepper, candy, games, etc. This celebration was for the whole family. Any consultant that had family nearby was able to bring them to this awesome gala.
Thursday was an early morning and a late night. We got up even early on Friday for Scentsy Success team games. See Friday is Team Day where everyone dresses up and celebrates their teams. We competed at 8:30 in the cereal eating contest.
We had a box of Fruit Loops (w/ Marshmallows) and 1 pint of milk. It had to be completely consumed in order to win. We barely missed being the champs at this one.
I have to say we tore our mouths up a bit for this one. It was loads of fun and we think we could win it next year - should we be invited back for this competition.
You can't really see it, but Angela and I both have marshmallows stuck to our faces. Ha! We didn't even know they were there.
We're all dressed up for the Awards Night Friday night. It was awesome --- the entertainment was an impersonator named Jason Hewitt. He was hilarious. I met him afterward and we cracked up a bit. If you're interested, you can type him in on YouTube to see some of his work.
Overall it was a great trip. I met new people, learned tons of stuff and had a good time. I was worn slam out by the time I got back home because of lack of sleep and information overload. It was crazy, but I look forward to it again next year.
