So there are some GREAT deals!
ANYWAYS… Let’s get on to the GOOD STUFF!!! 🙂
So I earned an incentive trip for one.. I was given the choice between the Bahamas and Scentsy Family Reunion… Well, I KNEW I didn’t want to miss out on SFR this year because it was the 10 year reunion, and I’d heard it was going to be H U G E! Last year I spent over $1,000 on SFR with flight, hotel, food, etc.. SO, this year I got it all for F R E E!!!!!!!!! You honestly can’t beat that! Scentsy booked my travel and hotel room and everything PLUS put money on my Scentsy card to cover baggage fees and all food! HELLO!!!!!!!! You just can’t beat that, can ya!?
So July 8th I flew out of Lubbock and headed to St. Louis Missouri! When we got there, there was a table set up for all incentive earners to schedule a shuttle… So I added my name to the list… Waited maybe 10 minutes and a huge bus showed up and took us to our hotels… Some of us were at Lumiere Hotel & Casino, and a few others were at the Four Seasons, but they were connected so that’s good..
We got to the hotel, checked in, and got ready, then headed over to the convention center to check in and get our lanyards and FREEBIES! 🙂 Incentive earners got a bag, a shirt, a pen and book, and Scentsy Clean LAundry stuff! WE ARE SO SPOILED! 🙂 🙂 Then we went in and talked to everyone, hung out, then it was time to have our opening ceremonies with Heidi & Orville, and SARA BARELLIS!!!!! AAAAUUUUUGGGGGHHHHH!! It was SO awesome! She is GREAT in concert! We were on the fourth row!!! It was so great! 🙂 🙂 My director and some friends actually got to meet her later that night!!! HOW FUN IS THAT?!
So the next day was the 5K which I DID NOT Participate in! HAHA! I slept in, which was WONDERFUL! My bed was SUPER comfy! All the Incentive Earners had lunch at the FOUR SEASONS with Heidi & Orville and all of the AUSTRALIAN earners! It was a WONDERFUL lunch! Salad, several kinds of bread, veggies, potatoes, parmesean crusted chicken, steak… It was DELICIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!
Lunch was wonderful, the company was wonderful.. It was awesome! 🙂 🙂 After that I believe I went to the Scentsy store to shop.. I can’t remember. LOL! 🙂 But then we went back to our hotel rooms to get ready for the TRUE opening ceremonies!!!!! IT.WAS.AWESOME! 🙂 But to get in… the line was RIDICULOUS!!!!!!!!!!!
What do you do when you wait in line?! TAKE SELFIES OF COURSE! DUH! 🙂
This is me, my sponsor and my roomie.. She’s from New York! 🙂
We finally made it in! WHEW!!!!!!! We’d texted our director while in line & said to be sure to save seats for us, because they always get the best seats, and I wanted to be UP CLOSE & PERSONAL for what was to come… Not only was it opening ceremonies for EVERYONE….. BUT, it was also a concert.. With one of my FAVORITE bands…. T R A I N! AAAAUUUUUGGGGGGHHHHHH!!! I ABSOLUTELY Love them and I was dying to get up close! So.. Sure enough, we were on the SECOND ROW! EEEEEK! Man, I was STOKED!
Heidi and Orville talked about all the GREAT new products coming out in September.. That was a BLAST, of course, PLUS they passed out mini testers of the new scents! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEK! We FREAKED OUT about that! LOL! 🙂 I would have taken pics of it, but I was saving my battery for the concert! HAHA! THEN… The lights went out…. And we saw just a light, and a train whistle… I thought I was gonna die. HAHA!!
THEN….. Pat came out into the crowd…… Said get your cell phones ready and we’d take some selfies.. UMMMMM WHAT?!??!? Well there was a crowd right at the stage.. I told my sponsor there was NO way I’d be able to get up there… She said to try and go for it.. SO I DID!!!!!!!! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEK! Check this out….
It’s CRAZY blurry because he actually TOOK the phone from me and took it kind of as he was walking! BUT THERE IT IS! And you can tell it’s him! 🙂 I was in LA LA Land after that! HAHA! I told Traci no way would she be able to pull me down to Earth! LOL! Seriously! 🙂 It was amazing! I am sure all of y’all are freaking out. HAHA! 🙂 I was! He’s so cute!!!! Too bad he’s married! HA! 🙂 I say that like I had a chance with him or something! HAHA!
Anyways! 🙂 🙂
So Thursday morning started with Heidi’s keynote speech… And if you’ve ever heard her talk, you’ve been inspired.. I can guarantee that! SHE IS SO AWESOME!!! THEN… They bring out a guest speaker. Someone I’ve never heard of.. John O’Leary.. OMG! This man is an AMAZING MAN! If you haven’t heard his story, PLEASE watch a video! Go to Youtube! HE IS AWESOME! He’s been through more than most people will EVER go through, and his story is SO Awesome, and he’s SO incredibly motivating! I was VERY blessed by his story!!!
The rest of the day, we had BREAK OUT SESSIONS….. They got consultants to lead sessions learning about certain topics! I think I did four that day….. Some of them were REALLY good, and I learned a lot!!!!!! That night…….. AMAZING!! We got “room drops” which is where the Incentive earners get a gift in their room every day… Wednesday it was St Louis Baseball hats, peanuts, and crackerjacks for the game they were taking us to on Thursday night! EEEEEEEEEEEEEK
Now, I normally don’t wear hats…. I look like a dude in a hat. LOL! BUT.. This was a trip! Going to a GAME! I HAD TO! I also bought a shirt earlier that day! 🙂
SO AWESOME to actually go to a MLB game! It was awesome, and the park was GINORMOUS! We stayed until about the 5th inning, then Traci and I left and went to get some dinner. We ate dinner and played at the Casino. HAHA! 🙂 We had a BLAST!!!! We didn’t end up winning.. We just played slots, and every time we won, we just kept playing, but boy was it FUN!!!! 🙂 🙂
Friday was the last day… We had consultants speak, and of course, Orville’s Keynote speech… If you think Heidi is inspiring, man you should hear Orville!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HE.WAS.AWESOME!!! It was a wonderful day!!! Then… That night…. It was the closing sessions and award ceremonies.. It was a lot of fun!
After the awards was our guest for the evening…….. COMEDIAN JIM GAFFIGAN! AUGH! That man is HYSTERICAL! 🙂 And he’s CLEAN! AHHH!! I laughed so hard!!!
If you haven’t heard any of his stuff, PLEASE Do! Go to Netflix, or YouTube.. He is GOOD!!!! 🙂 🙂
After his deal, Heidi And Orville came back out and announced our 2015 Incentive trips!!!!!!!!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

Afterward, we went to eat… Traci and I ate at the Hotel Casino Bar, Stadium and our new Aussie friends showed up, so we had a GREAT time! 🙂
Saturday was leaving day… UNFORTUNATELY, the didn’t have me leaving until 635pm! AUGH! There was nothing to do! So… Traci left at 12:30 so I hung out at the hotel, played slots in the casino, and read until I could take a shuttle to the airport! 🙂
