Fun times indeed! Old friends and new friends. Gifts, gifts and more gifts. Food and more food. Here we go!
She did WAY too much! And once I saw this . . .
I had a hissy fit. She had checked into attending the event
and then thought it would be over her head.
Look at that adorable covered match box she made!
Filled with "hugs"! awwwwwwwww :)
And this beautiful angel ornament . . .
Can you see what it says? Makes me cry . . .
I just love you Theresa!
Look at this lovely book . . .
Filled with wonderful sweet quotes.
Janette Oke is one my favorite authors.
Now for my roommate gifts from Miss Jodie
Hmmmmm . . . do you see a pattern here?
I do! She wanted me to gain 20 pounds on this trip!
And then when I got home, there was this waiting for me . . .
I've been really good. I got this far . . .
But when I read this . . . I stopped. Awwwwwwwwww . . .
Well, almost . . . it was so tempting . . . But Mr. Harley sniffed out
something that smelled HEAVENLY so I took it out.
"Oh come on Karen, please can I eat it?"
(note the flour still in the fur!
they are finally at the groomers today!)
I'm waiting until Sunday to open it. I know I'm gonna cry.
And when I show you - you're gonna cry too.
Cause it's MINE. ALL MINE! (sorry! hehehe)
OK, back to Savannah. First night was the Welcome Night Soiree. (I'm borrowing a few pictures from Jenn. Thank you Miss Jenn!)
This was grand room* we entered into.
This was our place setting . . . goodies galore!
Look at that sweet fan!
And in the white eyelet fabric pouch was our name tag.
Too flippin' cute!
Of course, we had this pretty pink bag on our chairs . . .
What's that? What's inside?
Be patient . . . that'll come in my next post.
Rosalyn Sue set up the most AWESOME
Southern Sweet Bar just FULL of yummy candies and goodies.
She just OUTDID herself. She was just an absolute sweetheart .
She took ill on the very last night there, but came
home today and is undergoing more tests. Please
put her on your prayer list. She is just so sweet and kind.
Yup - we each got to fill up our own bag! :)
Then the Miss Jo Packham of Where Women Create
spoke while we all dined on lasagna and chicken. Good stuff!
Just look how cute these two are *.
What an honor for Jo to spend the ENTIRE weekend with us.
We started the evening off with peach martinis. *
Can you say YUM?
And ended it on a ghost tour of old Savannah. *
Of course, camera was left behind in the room . . . ;(
But oh well. It was still just a great evening!
Coming up next - the SWAPS!!! sigh.
