Roofing Convention!

So, if you I didn't scared off by the FUN post title, you will learn a little about the Florida Roofing and Sheet Metal Association(FRSA) Convention.

Adam and I had the privilege of going with his aunt and uncle down to Orlando for 5 days for the Convention. We got to stay at the beautiful Peabody and ate SO many great meals.

The association puts on such a great convention. Along with the really fun trade show where you get worthless awesome stuff! The ladies spent a whole afternoon hitting all of the different booths seeing what they had to offer. Needless to say, we now have plenty of pens, paper pads, safety kits, safety glasses, reusable grocery bags(is there anyone else that always forgets to use these? No? ), and a personal favorite is the little rubber band holder that holds rubber bands shaped like houses, yes it is possible.

In addition to the trade show, the ladies had events to go to also. We had a day of "stamping" with is sort of like scrapbooking. I made little thank you cards! Very fun. We also had a day of playing BUNCO. Also, very fun! Adam's aunt also did a presentation on how to do cheap flower arrangements and centerpieces.

I would have to say that the theme night party was our favorite. It was a 20's Speakeasy theme. Flappers, Gangsters and gambling. Luckily it was all with fake money! We got a great dealer who was tons of fun! At the end of the night, for every $5,000 you had, you got a raffle ticket and then they drew for prizes! Next year is Motown, I will definitely go more prepared with a costume. I am thinking bell bottoms and platforms for Adam~ What do you think?:)

Well, that's just a taste of what we did! I will leave you with some pictures of our time!

What a fun trip! It reminds me of the times I got to travel with your daddy. Do you remember all of the items we would bring back and let you and Julie dig through?
