North Carolina – Part 1

Work sent me to North Carolina in early August for a workshop/training. I arrived a day early and spent the day and night at a dear friend’s house. Gail and Laurie and their two adorable kiddos, Katee and Maggie, welcomed me in and we had a blast.

The next day I headed into work with Laurie and got to see coworkers and friends. It was a great day of learning and fun. On Tuesday, we started our training. After training was over, my buddy, Adam, and I headed to the gym. I got an hour of spin in and he did weights. We headed back to the hotel and ate at the bar (in our workout clothes). This does not sound like a big deal, but we were staying at the O’Henry, a very upscale hotel. Luckily, they did not kick us out. :) On a serious note, if you are EVER looking for a hotel in Greensboro, you must stay at the O’Henry. It is in my top three of hotels.

On Wednesday, we had a great day of training. As soon as it was over, Jessica and I headed to Durham to meet Bertie and Katie for dinner. Katie is/was very pregnant and we were excited to see her baby belly!

Jessica and I arrived a bit early and of course we had to take a picture with the mirror covered bull…


We attacked Katie and Bertie when they arrived! Her baby belly was just adorable! We had a lovely dinner with them and sadly had to part. We ate at the Cheesecake Factory so you can imagine how full we left :)

When we got back to the hotel, I had the great honor of meeting our new North Louisiana rep, Jenna. She is a doll! Jenna had gone to dinner with Ashley and had stopped in the bar to introduce us. Yay Southern District!

Thursday was our last full day of training. That night I had the honor of going to dinner four amazing women and one fun Jonesy. Thank you Bob, Susan, Terri, Jenni, and April for a lovely night.

On Friday, we were there for a half day. We finished our meetings around lunch time. I made my rounds and said good bye to all my Greensboro friends.

I was finally on my way to see my Janessa. I left Greensboro and headed down to Jacksonville, NC.

To be continued…

Love and Hugs, Lizzie
