Fun-O-Meter Overload!

Friday was our long awaited AZ Bloggers Luncheon. I mean talk about excitement, fun, laughter, talent, hugs, and major talking all in one room. 17 ladies joined in at Gooseberries restaurant in Phoenix. I really don't know how much lunching went on....hard to talk and eat!

We were to bring an exchange gift. This is my little gift and tag ready to go!

I made favors for each of the ladies and tied a silk leaf and a card as a momento...

This is our long table waiting for all the special guests!

We had a fairy watching over us the whole time!

opening gifts...

uh, this would be talking. I know there are a lot of photos going to be shared on all the blogs. I wish I had more....but uh....well, I was TALKING!!

Country Wings in Phoenix has left a new comment on your post "My Count":

Hi CeeKay sweetie.
I had such a lovely time today. It was so wonderful to get to meet you at last and share craft ideas and thoughts. Loved it.

I looked for you all when I came out of the store today, and you were gone. I looked in the parking lot, but couldn't find you all. So I am sorry I didn't get to say good-bye. I so had a wonderful time. Enjoyed the time with you tremendously. Thank you honey.

I will be getting your domino finished for you. I have already got a start on it. I will pick up a teapot tomorrow for you. Please email me your address so that I can mail it to you. My email address is in my profile.

Thanks again for a wonderful day. I so loved it. Country hugs and love sweetie, Sherry

What great fun! It's amazing that there are so many of you able to get together in one place - Arizona is a big state! Enjoy your weekend. Sally

It looks like a wonderful time was had by all!! You are a sweetie to make the party favors...they are so cute. The table was cute for that matter. And what we ladies do more than blog and talk is craft wonderful gifts.

So glad you had a good time Ceekay...wish I were there! :-)


Karen said...

Oh Dear CeeKay!
What fun! I had a wonderful time! I am so glad you were feeling so great to be able to come! My biggest fear was that you wouldn't.
I can't view my pictures cause I forgot my cord at home. (I know I didn't take enough pictures. I was too busy TALKING!) So it is 6 hours away - so maybe Sunday. After the drive and Halloween!
Loved seeing you. We'll do it again! Promise.
Big hugs! Karen

What can I say, but "Ditto, Ditto, Ditto!" ... to everything Sherry just wrote. Meeting you n' the other gals up-close-n-personal just exceeded my expectations. Thank you for brightening my day!

Hi Ceekay! What a fun time! I can tell from the photos. How nice to get together like that and meet blogger friends. :)

Looks like everyone had a wonderful time. If I lived in AZ, I would have been there.

Hi Ceekay,
It was so wonderful meeting you and what a surpise with Karen coming, I still can't get over that! I could have stayed and talked all afternoon. Your such a special gal and I still feel bad about my broken gift. I will be coming back to AZ soon and we will have to get together and head to the dollar tree! hehe. Hugs to you, Cindy

I was so sorry that I had to leave. The party was just getting started!
I was wondering who made the cute box of goodies. The candy corn helped me stay up late last night and work on a school project.

Be blessed and be well!

Oh what fun! I wish I could have joined in on the fun. Have a blessed weekend.

Charlotte said...

What wonderful photos. Man, I wish I could have been there. I'm glad you got to go this time. AZ bloggers are the best.
I agree. We should meet at the tea room in Carefree sometime. I wonder if that would be a good place for all the AZ bloggers to meet sometime. It would be further to drive for some, but closer for some.
