No Syracuse Regional BUT fun at Missy's

Yea I was supposed to go to the Syracuse Regionals with my sister Annette as my guest. We had been watching the weather closely and Annette decided to leave work early so we could drive up Thursday afternoon ahead of the storm. We had already prepaid for our hotel room and planned on staying 2 nights. Yes we beat the storm made it to the hotel and finished up our swaps and cards for the shoebox event we would be attending Friday night before doing anything....We were so excited and chatting about everything that we might get to see and do (this was our 1st SU event ever).
Our Swaps

Then I turned on my lap top...opened my e-mail... and there it was :(
The e-mail from my upline Missy...
...my heart stopped.

After a few moments of silence Annette and I decided the room was paid for and we were going to make the best of it and stay in Syracuse for the 2 nights we had planned. Plan started to form... ideas started to roll... decisions were made... Call Missy

Missy informed us she had ladies from out of town staying with her for the regionals and yes THEY WERE STAMPING!!! we were so excited... but then we looked out the window and reality...The Snow :( and we were stuck in the hotel thinking about the ladies gathered at Missy's house stamping, sharing stories and eating Carols homemade cookies, sad sad sad moment.

Okay so on to plan B
Feed our broken hearts at the hotel resturant
Drown our tears in the hotel pool
Relax our sore stamping muscles in the hot tub
Put on our PJs and cheer on the USA Olympic Atheletes 
Get a good night sleep and hope tomorrow is better.

New day, sunshine, going to Missy's house to stamp
It gets even better
Get to Missy's house...a dear friend Carol VanBork is there :|
Start meeting new friends and...

Hey there-
Totally rocking post!!!
I had a fantabulous time with all of you. I think we were so lucky with the weather on Friday. I am sorry I was so tired both nights. I felt stupid to sit and keep drifting off but I was whooped from the excitement, to many late nights etc..

I totally agree with Carol .. what a fabulous time, and what fabulous ladies we met! Is it bad to be almost glad the event was cancelled? Hah, I am sure that would have been a totally different kind of great!
