Most of you know that I went to Spokane, WA for the Farm Chicks show last weekend.

It was truly an amazing weekend!!! 

But in so many ways that you can't imagine.

Yes, I will show you incredible treasures…and bought many lovely ones…but that is not what I really took away from this weekend.

Take a good look at this photo. Yes, you see a group of gorgeous girls that are immaculately dressed:-)



What else you see if a group of women that (for most of them) had never met until the show. 

 A group of women that had only known one another from blogs. 

 A group of women that once they met in person it was as if they had known each other for years. 

What is also incredible about these women is that they all "got" me.  Do you know what I mean?  A group of women that I connect with on such a creative level. 

No one questioned me when I was buying old postcards, vintage flashcards, vintage grain sacks or old wooden shoe forms…..they all understood. 

These girls "get" that I have a bowl of old books on my coffee table and a apothecary jar full of vintage stamps. 

I love that when we got back to our hotel we noticed we all took the same photos…we were drawn to the same beauty. 

For all the husbands….our first night started out with a pillow fight followed by leg shaving…did I just say that out loud?


Seriously, more than my husband joked if we were going to be doing that!  This was really just everyone meeting and looking at Brooke's gorgeous jewelry.

We then all met at the bar of the beautiful Davenport hotel.  It was a great way to start the trip and everyone was taking pictures.


Here is Sara and Tara.  They were so much fun!  I had met Sara a little less than a year ago and this was my first time meeting Tara in person. They are as amazing in person as on their blogs!!

We then all headed to Moxie for dinner.  No reservation…just the huge gand of us and they accomodated us.  The food was fabulous and I laughed hard the whole night.

Truly..we laughed until tears were running down our cheeks and our faces hurt!


After dinner many of the girls headed back to the hotel.  Rebekah, Brooke, Melaine, Kim, Trina and I headed out to meet Cindy, Jermonne and Joe for drinks. 

This picture was at midnight….how can they still look this good…..WRONG…so wrong!


I had the awesome splurge of having my own room.  When was the last time you were in a hotel room by yourself….it was so wonderful!  I didn't sleep well that night though because I kept thinking I would oversleep and miss the show:-)

The next morning many of us met at Madeleine's for breakfast(I am so hungry just THINKING about it).  A few of us had eaten there the day before and it was worth waiting until they opened.  A French pastry shop and girl's weekend go hand in hand!







OK…tomorrow I will have the next installment.

 Tomorrow you get to see the photos from the show and the incredible vendors! 

You might also get to see the fabulous Ms. Kim in a tutu…maybe…



Sa-Sea Boutique is having an amazing giveaway…head on over.
