Days 5, 6, 7 and 8

A little catch up here. The last three days of our convention was such a whirlwind, my head's still spinning. But it's like that every year: up at 6am, at the convention center by 8am, back at the hotel at 11pm. We were so drained after each day we just crashed. But it's all worth it; it's the most amazing time, kind of a cross between a Billy Graham revival and the Price is Right.
We had about 7000 attendees this year, a little smaller than last year. Mostly women, but we get more and more men every year.
Thursday was my favorite day at convention because they introduce the new jewelry. Very exciting!
Friday was my favorite day at convention because we had great trainings and guest speakers. This year, we had Nick Vujicic from Life Without Limbs. Words cannot express how absolutely amazing he is! Unfortunately, I forgot my camera Friday so I didn't get any pictures. Aarrgh!
Saturday was my favorite day at convention because we had a huge tribute to America and the armed forces.
This year has been the best ever! Of course, we say that every year :-)
So we got up this morning, packed the car, and headed out. It was a quiet, uneventful trip. We're staying at the same hotel we stayed in on the way to Texas. We went out to dinner at a really great, Cajun restaurant this evening.
We got there right at closing; that's why there's no one in this picture. It was really busy when we got there and the food was amazing.
Home tomorrow! Woo hoo!

Thanks for reading!
Blessings :-)
