Top Ten List {Dream Girls 2}

{Top Ten List}

1. Beef Bourguignon tastes the best when you are sitting around a table with a dear friend

2. When I heard the theme was hillbilly…I didn’t really have any concept of hillbilly!

3. That being hit on at the Yella Beak by a woman is fine with me at this point in my life.

4. Brainstorming with creative women helps me to come home more inspired and focused than before.

5. 40 women should not solder without proper ventilation.  There may be permanent brain damage here…just saying.

6. Was I supposed to actually come home with a finished project????

7. Sometimes a bar can be so loud that you can misunderstand drink names and really make a fool out of yourself!

8. When you have to eat gluten free you lick the tops of lots of cupcakes….lots…..

9. We all need a little grace….and we all need to be willing to give it.

10.  Whenever I come home from the Pacific Northwest I snuggle up with Kelly begging to move there.  Beautiful land and the most amazing women!!!

    It sounds like you had a wonderful time 🙂
    I am completely smitten with the PNW & cannot wait to go back again for the 7th time this April for Artfest!!! I keep telling Larry how much he would love it there, and we’re planning a trip driving up from San Francisco to BC staying in little log cabins & B&B’s the whole way up the coast. There is supposed to be a bakery on Salt Island that is incredible.

    So glad you had fun, and got all loved up by your girls 🙂

    Since you are an amazing woman, you’d fit right in! Love the little flower garlands in the photos…. I’d probably be licking lots of that frosting too…looks yummy!

  5. Lara

    please, please, please move here!!! What a dream that would be. I would bring over caramel corn every weekend…I swear.

    So sad to have missed you. As I was shooing my relatives out of my house (not really…maybe just in my head) I was wishing I was being silly with you all up north. Dadgumit!! I’m asking Tiff to revolve that Dream Girls schedule around my schedule next year–ha!!

      Find Kelly a good paying computer networking job. It is hard because he is a high level manager now. Hard to give up a great job. He also loves the area.

    Sounds like a lot of fun…and looks oh-so-lovely! Beautiful photos:) And I’ll have to watch out if ever I’m eating a cupcake around you 😉

    1. jeanne

      You need to start putting things together back home. There has to be other creative people like you there!!!
