So, I've been home from Florida for 2 weeks now, and I've been compiling all the photos that I have managed to get from my roommates and other lovely consultants. Convention was am AWESOME experience and I am so happy that I got to attend.
My roommates were Darla by BFF, and Rosalynd, who is another Nova Scotian, us Atlantic Canadians need to stick together you know. We had 2 flight delays on our way to Orlando, the first one happened before we even left Halifax. We flew into Philly and while there a huge Thunder Storm passed through. We had a 3 hour lay-over, which gave us time to grab some lunch. Then our terminals got changed. The storm backed everything up and we were about 15 minutes late on take-off, which had us landing about 20 minutes late, as we had to fly around a storm coming into Orlando.
We've just got off the flight into Orlando. We grabbed our luggage, then then headed to the WDW magical express where we got on a bus that would take us directly to our resort at Walt Disney World, Coronado Springs Resort.
This is a view of the convention centre from our section of rooms. We had to walk about 8 minutes from our room to the convention centre a couple times a day. The temperature and humidity is about the same as here in Halifax. So we didn't mind it too much.
When we arrived and checked into the hotel we had been travelling for over 12 hours, it made for a long day, but we were super excited.
When we finally found our room in the dark, we were welcomed by these towels on the bed.
You would think that after travelling all day, we would be ready to go to bed, but you'd be wrong. Instead we headed to the bar where we met up with Lucy and some other fabulous ladies, where we ended up closing out the bar. Yep, they close at 1 am, and we were still chatting it up at 2 am.
Here you will see Darla posing with Lucy as they finally got to meet in person. That is the wonderful thing about Close To My Heart, you form relationships with other consultants all over Canada and the USA, and when you finally get to meet it's a huge celebration. We can't wait to meet all our new CTMH consultant sisters, as we have just opened in Australia and New Zealand.
So once we finally decided to go to bed, the excitement was just begining as come morning the girls would be off to Leadership Day, and I was headed shopping with Janet at Downtown Disney.
Come back on Tuesday when I'll be posting about my shopping trip at Downtown Disney.
