I was on the phone with Mom around 9:30 am EST last Friday and then I saw a strange area code on the caller ID, I told Mom to hold on a minute and when I heard Beth and Patty on the speaker phone I about dropped the phone! I just kept saying NO WAY and OMG - you're kidding!!! I loved their response "we wouldn't kid about a thing like this" after they told me I was a MMM everything else was a blur. I was just shaking when I got back on the line with my Mom, and bless her heart she started screaming too when I told her! It was so hard to keep it all a secret for almost a week! ;D

I so agree with Christine...so hard to keep it a secret!

I got a call around 8:30 am Mountain. I was asleep. So sad but true. My husband came and said "You want to take this call." I took the phone and said hello. I know Patty & Beth said who they were and asked if I knew why they were calling. I was very articulate in my response, saying "SHUT UP! Are you serious?" In retrospect telling the editors of a magazine to shut up probably wasn't my best move. The rest of the conversation was a blur. I know there was a "Yes, of course I accept." After I hung up the phone, I asked the DH..."Did all that just happen? Am I really a Master?" I just couldn't believe it.

Oh Christine and Ronda great phone calls... I think everyone has the same type experience. You hear Patty and Beth and then what the heck are you serious...

The day before I got my call I was so feeling sorry for myself as I just knew the calls had to have been made already so I stayed up until 4:30 in the morning working on a project... when i heard the phone ring and saw the caller id and the area code I was in such a fog I just could not believe it. I was scared to answer the phone. Actually Alan told me to answer it... he just knew it was THE call I had been wanting so badly. My dogs could feel my excitement and were jumping all over me... I was trying to remain calm but heck that just was not in the cards.

That call is one you will never ever forget and next year when the class of 2010 is announced you will have the very same feeling for the new team. It is just all so wonderful.
Hugs,
Lisa P.
