Oh My, My, Oh Hell Yes - Honey Put On That Party Dress

Yesterday I got to attend our postponed soiree... Alicia hosted the Kansas City area bloggers (or at least, all we know of) for an afternoon of lots of food, laughing and fabric swapping.

Alicia, Estea, Lori, Michelle, and Amy (not pictured: Jenny and me) (Hannah didn't make it, and she was missed)

Of course, when I say "food" I mean "Hey, tell me what's in that." "That looks good." "How does it taste?" "How does it feel in your mouth?" "GOOD GOD, I MISS WHEAT." ::sob::

Okay, I don't actually miss wheat. But I do miss being able to eat everything. Damn it.

So what happens when you get seven crafty bloggers together (besides eating tons of food) for an afternoon? Well, you don't get pictures. That's what you don't get.

We were too busy laughing and swapping fabric (Jenny brought her entire stash, and we all left with huge bags of stuff) to take pictures. Oops.

And we are most certainly doing this again. Absolutely. And without the kids again, if you don't mind.

I'm so jealous!! I want to go to a blogger's soiree. Food, laughing and fabric... sounds like the perfect day.

What a great idea! It's so nice to put a face to a name, and how lucky to leave with a party bag!

beki said...

Woo hoo, look at all those sexy ladies!!! I'm with everyone else, and am so very jealous. It sounds like a really fun time.

Michelle said...

Damn we look good! (hee hee)
Um, Did any one get a picture with you in it? And you have my vote for another bash (minus kids).

Alicia A. said...

Hee hee- we look silly!

Thanks for coming, dear. And thanks for the extra cake that became my breakfast!

See, there's something good about Kansas!
What a great idea. Except I don't sew and scrappers arn't that generous with paper. :)

It sounds like a blast! I'm convinced that bloggers are just nicer/more fun than the general population...

Was there not a single boy hanging around to take a picture so you could all be in it??? I love how gorgeous and happy everyone looks - but I'm frustrated that there are people missing!!!!!

diana said...

Chickenbells said...

How fun...I feel a bit jelous and left out...I have tons of fabric I could swap out!

Cathy said...

That sounds like fun! Minus sussing out the wheat that is. I wish you could eat anything too.

Momma Pajama said...

Eh? What's that, dearie?

It makes me feel OLD! So I'm doing my best to act immature and embarrass them in public (they're used to it, my husband's been doing it for years!)

Just wait 'til YOUR little spawn can look you eye to eye! It's a freaky feeling!

laeroport said...

Okay, we were all SUPPOSED to be posing like Estea had just explained to make you look slimmer - evidently I took that to heart a bit more than everyone else, because I'm the only one that looks like an idiot. :) So so fun! Again! Soon! and maybe in Lawrence!

amy h said...

We look like the Rockettes or something, lined up like that. I don't think I did the chin thing correctly. :) I'm glad there were at least a couple people smart enough to remember their cameras!

Ali said...

Hooray for the joys of bloggers-in-real-life!

patrice said...
