The theme for today was definitely "back to reality". It's always so hard to come home from a week long trip and back to everything that needs to be done; laundry, cleaning, grocery shopping, work. It's all a FAR CRY from sitting on the beach, book in hand, not a worry or care in the world.
So I'm going to travel back in time and recap my week at the beach.
Monday morning my mom and I were dropped off at the airport bright and early to catch our 6am flight.
We loaded our special Scentsy charter flight and I started to get into vacation mode!
We had a morning full of traveling and finally arrived in the Dominican Republic in mid-afternoon. We got out of the plane at the airport - which is a relative term since this was sort of a hut in the middle of a parking lot, went through customs and then boarded a charter bus to head to paradise!
Me at the DR airport waiting on luggage: (note: when you travel with your mom she takes lots of pictures of you. Alone.)
The first night there Scentsy had a little event to welcome everyone. My mom and I went and hung out and ate some food. I was so glad to have her there with me!
The next morning we had a breakfast to go to where leaders from Scentsy spoke. I got a fun gift for it being my first incentive trip with Scentsy (again with the solo pics).
Me and the momma:
We then spent the next 4 days doing nothing but sitting in the sun, looking for shade, going back to the sun, dipping feet in the water and deciding it was too cold, reading, eating, nursing sunburns, eating and watching Thunder basketball in the middle of the Dominican Republic.
I would say it was a great week!!
The last night Scentsy had a big dinner for all the consultants and their guests. We were encouraged to wear white for a white night on the beach. It was so neat looking, like a giant sea of white!
With my mom:

The next morning we woke up and started our journey back home. It's always a little sad to leave a vacation but I was very ready to see my two boys waiting for me at home.
We had a long day of traveling and got home around 10:00. Luke picked us up at the airport and Eli greeted me with a giant sleepy smile. I sat with him in the back and he just kept looking at me and smiling. I think he missed his mama!
As great as the beach was it is also nice to be home, even if the cleaning fairy didn't come while I was gone..... I was praying hard she would show up!
Thanks Scentsy for an amazing trip!
