Some of you know that Rhett won a Service Excellence Award at work. He is the only one in Lafayette ever to win one. Well he was also chosen as a Summit Award winner...which is recognition of the "best of the best" of At&t. As a Summit Award winner Rhett won an all expense paid trip to Scottsdale Az. We left on Saturday, and came back late on Tuesday. My Dad and Tracy were nice enough to keep the kids for us...and all weekend we were spoiled! The Phoenician Resort is an amazing property, the rooms were top notch and the service rivaled that of Disney (which rates high in our book) At&t also had activities planned for us. I got two days at the spa, and Rhett got one day on the golf course and one day at the spa. His team won the golf scramble so that was an added bonus. There was a short "business meeting" where awards were presented and the vision for 08 was discussed, a formal dinner banquet where Melinda Dolittle preformed for us, dancing, dinner out in the desert, and dinner at a place called the venue...which included casino games, live band karoke and was just a ton of fun. Every evening when we returned to our room we were greeted with chocolates on the pillow, and a gift from At&t...one night it was polo shirts, one night windbreakers, and the last night a digital photo frame. We met some great people, and had the privilege to get to know some of the executives a little better. Rhett's job at At&t has always been a blessing to our family, and this was absolutely no different. As a wife, it was a very fulfilling thing to see my husband honored for doing his job well! All weekend they kept saying "Your spouse is the best of the best in our industry" and I kept thinking, he's also the best of the best at home...what more could I ask for! I have a ton of pictures, I will post sometime tomorrow.
