Greetings from Maui DAY 1-

 We are excited to be going to Maui on our first incentive trip! 

I can't believe after 21 years with Stampin' UP! I finally earned an incentive trip.  WOW IS ALL I CAN SAY!  I actually never tried to earn the trips, I thought there were not attainable for me. However I was wrong. We would not be here if it was not for my wonderful team WagStampers, my customers and family and friends support. Thank you so much.

A few pics from our first day!

On board of American Airlines from West Palm Beach to Dallas then to Maui.

Just landed in Maui.  (yes it is windy) :)


In Maui I found another Florida Sunshine SU Demonstrator, Bethany Barnard we arrived in the same plane from Dallas.


Look what we found on our door!  What a welcome!


Our first "Pillow Gift" on our bed.  We were greeted with this cute Maui beach hat and a round beach towel that has pineapples and the SU logo on it.  Next time I go to the beach I will take a photo of it spread out and show you. I love that we get "Pillow Gift" surprises each night.


Our first sunset this view is from our balcony.

This was the first night at the Meet and Greet Aloha Carnival.  Jennifer Hill (left) found  Bethany Barnard and I.  What a fun night and yummy desserts.



They had such pretty table decorations.


This was a pineapple dessert cooked in a coconut shell. Yummy!

 Stay tuned for more Maui photos.
