Keeping it classy while traveling!

Hello ladies and gentlemen seriously!  Cheers to all, I hope you are enjoying the summer.  This classy lady has been traveling quite extensively for the last three weeks.  I started at my sorority convention in mid June in Atlanta.  I was privileged to participate in training for the curriculum on Sexual Assault Prevention.  Our organization is partnering with the Fraternity Health and Safety Institute in conjunction with one other sorority and several fraternities to provide training to our chapters.  This is a bold step for our organization and I am very proud that we are working to assist our women with this important and timely topic.  Our organization also passed 55 amendments during business sessions that will change our structure positively for the future.  All in all, it was an exhausting week, but lots of fun and very rewarding.  And hey, I got to visit friends and their new baby AND go to the college football hall of fame while I was there.

Next I went to Pinehurst, North Carolina for a golf conference for work.  And my dad came to visit so that he could play some of the courses at the resort.  It was lots of fun and I always love seeing my dad.   So from Pinehurst, I arrived back in Chicago on a Wednesday night and was home for 48 hours.  Just enough time to see my BFF while she was in town and get my nails done...OH and finish up the quarter hitting my sales goal.  :)

Then I was fortunate enough to travel to New Zealand for a week on a fam trip sponsored by United Airlines.  I was on their inaugural flight from San Francisco to Auckland.  WOW!  What a trip, not only did we get to do things like sail on an America's Cup boat, cruise on Lake Taupo and visit Te Puia (a Maori Cultural School) in Rotorua, we also stayed in a gorgeous 5 star lodge, Huka Lodge. And they put me in the Owner's Cottage, very fancy.  The highlight of the trip was our private yacht charter to Waiheke Island, where we did wine tasting and had a fabulous lunch looking back to Auckland.  And then we took a helicopter back to Auckland.  But the actual best part of the trip were the people!  I had so much fun with the people from United and some of the other agents I met on the trip.  It is amazing to think about what a lucky lady I am!

So with all of travel, the 100 bars of summer challenge has been derailed a bit.  But don't you worry! The gorge blonde and I are determined ladies, we will get back on track here shortly.  And I am actually in town now until 30 August when I leave for Africa!

For those of you who have been reading my blog for the last several years know that my dating life is awful, can't ever seem to meet anyone decent.  And I have been saying for quite some time that I just need to meet someone on a plane, who travels and can understand my CRAZY schedule.  Well, stay tuned because I did meet someone.  Seems very promising and I will leave it at that....I mean, I need to keep you in suspense for the next post, right?

As always ladies and gentlemen, remember to keep it classy and have fun!

...Keep your chin, heels and standards high...
