    #1. Come back to Alabama and take any and all photos of me – I look sassy in that one and my head seems like a normal size.

    #2 It was such a fun event and I hope every woman ends up wearing one of your wonderful pieces. Even if it’s because that’s where the government stores the “Big Brother” chips.

  18. Oh yes! San Francisco, anyone?

  57. elz says:

    Yes! We’ve done a Houston meet-up before. Actually, I’ve done two meet-ups, one for Bossy (Georgia’s) road trip and one pre BlogHer. I didn’t go to BlogHer, but it was fun meeting everyone. Houston is the closest for me.

    I also voye that your dress is super cute.

  58. debbie says:

    count me in if you visit columbus, ohio (ashley c too!). I’m not a blogger myself, but I certainly follow yours – and probably spent more time in the “store” than I should. ; )

  59. I LOVE the water bottles with your name on them… Where on EARTH did you get those??? Do tell… I am dying to here more details. CUTE blog with GREAT jewlery… I am putting you on my most popular list.
