Stampin' Up! Convention 2013: Arrival Day

We are here! After an hour and a half of sleep, barely making it to our gate in time to board the plane, and waiting 30 minutes for a shuttle...we are here!

None of the official Convention activities start until tomorrow, so we had a quick bite to eat, we went on a scheduled tour of Salt Lake city. As many times as I have been here, it's pathetic that this was the first time that I've explored the area! A highlight of the tour was the State Capital building. It was gorgeous!!
After the tour, we checked in to our room and unpacked. Before dinner, we met our friends in the lobby for the unveiling of the green hats! My upline, Kim Peck, decorates hats for us each year. They are bright green so we can easily find each other of the crowd. This year, there are 63 green hatters! And among them are my parents!
I'm so excited that Dad is attending Convention for the first time this year. He even made swaps!

After the reveal, Mom and Dad treated me out for dinner to celebrate my birthday.  And before settling down for the night, I managed to squeak in some time for the hot tub with one of my roommates, Cathy Roy! Check out this awesome little gift Cathy made for me!
I've gotten some other great gifts from my roommates and friends too! I love how some of them incorporated the Convention logo on their gift! I am putting the finishing touches on my gifts to hand out and will share pictures another day! For's bedtime!!
