I’m Late... I’m Late for a Very Important Date!

Thank you for this month's fun challenge Anna Banana Kruchten CRS, Phoenix BrokerKathy Streib and Carol Williams

When Roger Mucci was here in Active rain he always made fun of the infamous point store! It was rumored there were prizes and annuities to be found but it was always elusive! I for one gave up and decided it did not exist!

Now I’ve found it and low and behold I’m astonished to see all the goodies offered! What an assortment of extraordinary events offered by so many who are “Who’s Who” in our Active Rain world. So many opportunities and so little time to decide how to spend my points! Decisions to make...I'm Late...I'm Late for a very important date!

               

I’m so glad to know travel is included with The Banana Jet Set Group offered by Anna Banana Kruchten CRS, Phoenix Broker! That takes the pressure off.

I love Paris and have many fond memories of trips there and dinner with Endre Barath, Jr. in Paris would be delightful but alas I’m only to pick one for this challenge. After much deliberation I’ve decided I’m going to spend 20,000 points in the point store for the Lake in North Carolina by Debe Maxwell, CRS!

Carol Williams stopped to see Debe and Ray on her epic road trip and Debe's shirt says it all and was the tipping point for my decision! I want to visit her Happy Place!

                     

I know there are 10 Active Rain members, who are willing to set out to Lake Wylie with me for a week at the beautiful Hotel Maxwell!  I can’t wait to see the "art display" I see in so many of Debe’s posts of their gorgeous sunsets! I can’t wait to tour Lake Wylie by boat and meet Ray, who I’ve heard so much about and is the light of Debe’s life! I’m all in for relaxing with top shelf cocktails and a lazy dinner lake side.

   

It’s been hard to make a decision but now I feel comfortable in my choice and don’t feel now like: "I’m late....I’m late for a very important date!"

Hello Dorie - you may be late but it looks like you are on your way to the checkout section of the store.  I am pretty sure Roger Mucci would appreciate the mention although I am sure he is still missing that washer-dryer (or something similar) purchased with points.

Great choice!  I think you will find that there will be a lot more than 10 that want to join you on that trip.  You will have to hold a contest to see who the 10 lucky winners are.

Water reflects the colors, making Debe's sunrise and sunset photos even more amazingly vibrant. She is the most gracious person who shines with southern personality and warmness. I am sure you will enjoy getting to know the Maxwell's better, Dorie. For my points store purchases, her location is on My To-Do List as well but I do want it all!

Great choice, Dorie. I am excited to be part of the crew taking you to Debe's Happy Place. Did you know there will be a Banana Limo waiting at the airport when the BananaJet lands? It's going to be so fun!
