Wishes Do Come True

Friday morning I sneak up on the convention stage for a picture with Cinderella's castle behind me, dreaming about winning the album contest I entered.  I may look cool and collected in this picture, but my nerves were a wreck as the clock ticks closer and closer towards the awards banquet.

What a feeling it is to hear and see your name on a big screen during the most wonderful dinner and banquet show I have ever attended. Drum roll, please.....................................

Third prize winner of the album contest from Melbourne, Florida is Tamra Pope, what that's me......just as I took my seat, the announcer continued with, and the winner of the Consultant's choice is a woman who touched our hearts with her life story of how dreams can come true, Mrs. Tamra Pope!!!!!  WOW, I was stunned but I managed to make it to the stage again and as soon as I returned to my seat I called my upline Annette Green who was waiting anxiously at home, where it was 12:30 am Saturday morning.  Thanks Annette for waiting up for me and to everyone who follows my blog, every consultant who voted for me and to my friends and family who watched me put my story to paper for over 3 months....I can't wait until next year.

OMG, those flowers are heavy......and most definitely the most beautiful flowers I have ever seen in my life.

Here we are with all the flowers, the basket of prizes, and the biggest check I have ever seen in my life made out to me.  I especially want to thank my fellow Flamingo Gal Debbie Tuggle, my roommate and fellow consultant who had to deal with me all week and for all her support tonight as my nerves ran a muck.

See you when I get home.....My open house will be soon, so you can check out all the new goodies from the Autumn Winter catalog, and trust me when I say Jiminy Crickets this the best CTMH has ever done!
