Bloggers Day out!

Green with envy much? You better be! :) This was such a treat. I got to spend the better part of a day with 4 extremely talented women and got to be spoiled in the process. Don't you fret my pet, I have some goodies to share with you as well. Yeah, I'm just nice like that.

Here we all are together. And I do have LOADS of pictures to post about the day thanks to Brandon Osmond Photo. Which, btw, you should go follow on FB. But for now enjoy the giveaway! And stop over to the other gals and show some Texas Sized Love will 'ya?

It is worth your time and your neighbors and friends time as well to stop in at Mona Lisa's and visit (and buy) from Helen. I am talking about something for everyone here. From Men to Women to Kids... it is just paradise. Besides being beyond charming, there is a lot of history to many pieces. Helen knew so much! She spoiled us with lots of yummy treats even more eye candy! I could go on and on and on...

Love this sign. And this was simply one among MANY witty signs
 Megan from Brassy Apple, Shelby from Just Because I said "I Do", and yours truly. Aren't these ladies adorable? And their blogs nothing less than inspiring.

 I wish my suitcase was big enough to pack these beauties home
After spending not nearly enough time here, we headed down the street to Flour Girls and Dough Boys. This place is perfect for any occasion. I walked in about layed down right n the floor just overcome with all the yummy smells. And that was just the start! There was a cute little room reserved for us to enjoy our lunch.


After eating and laughing we were treated to just not one, but a PLATE FULL of treats. The mint brownie was the best mint brownie I have ever had. EVER. 

 So aren't you green with envy that you couldn't make it? The fun doesn't stop there though. 
Have you heard of Proof? I hadn't until a few months ago and boy oh boy, am I BIG fan. Don't I look just runway ready?!

 Proof Sunglasses are made out of wood. Yep. wood. You ready right. They use the proceeds from their sells to plant trees on Haiti, help provide eye protection for recipients of eye surgery in India, and because they are made from wood, they are good for the environment. I think the biggest surprise though was how comfortable they were. I forgot I even had them on.
Doesn't Kara from Kara's Party ideas, Kaysi from Fabu events, and Shelby from "I Do" look Fab!
Remember how we got spoiled with swag? Well we needed something to put it all in. And that is where anne b bags come in. She is currently a college student and really has an eye for purse fashion.  All her bags are handmade.
 Lots of detail huh?

The day really was just perfect.  Big thanks to Mona Lisa Consignments, Flour Girls and Dough Boys, Proof, and anne b bags for making our day so special.

 And to all of the sponsors that made our swags a real treat...
