THELMA & LOUISE.....back from our trip to Minneapollis, Minnesota pulling a pink trailer all the way!!



DAY ONE!!(one of many times we had to fuel up!LOL)

JENN'S SUGAR PINK TRAILER
 


THESE TWO BEAUTIFUL COUSINS ARE FROM KENTUCKY
I MET THEM AT THE DINNER ON THURSDAY NIGHT
THEY WERE AS PRECIOUS AS THEY LOOK
HERE IS THEIR WEBSITE WHERE THEY MAKE BEAUTIFUL

This is Kelly on the left and Elizabeth on the right.
  What a time we had....leaving early Tuesday morning, Sept. 13th, heading for the Creative Connection event in Minneapolis.  Jenn was so cute sitting behind the wheel in her black Denali SUV with Miss Pinky, her PINK trailer, following all the way!  BTW, she is a  great driver! We really got a lot of looks pulling that pink trailer!!! After stopping for the night (where? I can't remember) the next morning we started afresh, heading for our destination.  Did I mention the looks we got???lol  We finally arrived in MI, Tuesday afternoon.at the Hyatt & checked into our hotel room,which was btw...Room 2010"! LOL  Later, we met up with Christine Rose Elle and Jessi Nagy(our room mate) & had a wonderful dinner.  The next morning was very chaotic as we unloaded the trailer and set up our booths.  Although it was tiring, it was still fun.  Jenn and Jessi set up the most beautiful and magical booth. It was like pink heaven!!! I only rented a table so my area was smaller & in a different section of the market. We still visited each other, though.  I met some wonderful ladies and saw alot of friends.  My camera decided to break while I was there so I only have a few pictures of the event and my friends.  Please visit these blogs to see some great pictures:  http://sweeteyecandycreations.typepad.com/ or to http://scrappyjessi.blogspot.com/. I posted a few pictures that I was able to salvage and will post some pictures of my booth and the things I was selling that I had taken before my camera died. I will say that this was a learning experience, drinving so far from home & both of us vending for the first time!  Jenn made it very enjoyable, all the way there and back.  I would do it again, for her, but not to vend. Jenn is a darling and is so thoughtful in every way.  I really enjoyed the time we spent together.  I also enjoyed the adorable and vivacious, Jessi, the adorable and sweet Christine, & the adorable and sweetest, Danielle. I also got to know a special lady while I was there, too.  Her name is Elizabeth(pictured above) and her table was next to mine. She made the most adorable clutches!  I will never forget her sweet smile and her sweet soul. We plan to keep in touch. Another sweetie was Kelly,(pictured above) Elizabeth's friend and now mine!lol Her table was next to Elizabeth's & she sold pretty felt bows and headbands.
I will post more about our trip at a later time....lots more to tell!!!lol

Hello Sweetie,
I MISS YOU! You two look amazing. I so envy you rolling across the highways hauling your pink trailer. You must have been a sight. I need to write you a long email and get all caught up. How are you progressing on Marie gown?

Hugs,
