Coming to a Theater Near You:BLOGGERS' DAY OUT!









































I had such a fabulous day with these girls! Thanks Susan, Laura, and Glenda, for allowing an Arkansan to join ya'll in Tennessee. Beware, Lauralu is an enabler! She could find the best junk for ME to buy! And yes, Susan really does carry batteries in her purse (don't ask me how that tiny little lady carries so much weight in her purse). Glenda just stayed with us through lunch, so I don't know about her shopping and enabling abilities, or what she might carry in her purse! What I do know is that all three of these ladies are a lot of fun!

I wish I could meet all of my blogging buddies, because you are a fantastic group of people. laurie

Laurie--You are SO clever!!! I am going to have to speak with my agent. I think my left side may be my most photogenic. I'll be coming out with my own line of batteries soon! Thanks for a fun day and fun post!!!

Glenda/MidSouth said...

Oh My Gosh!! What a fun post!! Love it all. That obviously was not my best side! I am not very photogenic. We did have an enjoyable time didn't we? Looking forward to another time. Susan is a tiny one is she not. I had to laugh about the purse thing. I have to go thru a security check point in the morning, so just took a lot of stuff out of my purse. I don't want to be "detained" because of a pair of tweezers, clippers, and who knows what else etc., etc.

Cindy said...

OK Laurie,
You are just about the most creative lady I know and wish to meet! Ha! These pics are fabulous but where oh where is sweet Laurie? Hugs, Cindy

Miss Laura Lu/RMS4291960 said...

Laurie! I love it! But now nobody will go shopping with me! WAAHH! You are just too clever! Everyone's wanting to see a pic of you! So I guess I need to get on the ball and post my pics! I was thinking it would've been funny to have pics of us running across Summer Ave. and Susan standing by her car "hookin'" I mean smokin'! And guess what?...You're pretty tiny yourself! But I did pick out some good stuff for you! Love Ya! Lauralu :)

Cathy said...

Looks like way to much fun to me- need to spread some of that around!
Isn't it just the best to get to meet our blogging friends in person! You are so clever with your blogging- don't know how you do it with working and all- puts me to shame!

Thank you so much for your prayers Laurie- I am doing so much better and am walking with just the tiniest limp. Still working on the energy coming back but it is so wonderful to feel like I am back in the land of the living!

We closed on our house though we had to put in a new septic tank for a mere 3200.00! Told Bill this has been an expensive summer for us! Still haven't unpacked our 26 foot gooseneck trailer filled with more furniture and stuff! Got some great stuff in there I would love to show !

Now, I must tell you, I've used your tutorial on making mosaics and people have noticed mine!
