Stampfest Orlando that is! Jeanne and I are still at Kittie’s, and will be here until Tuesday morning. That’s when we hit the road for the trip back home, taking a different route than when we came. Wonder if Atlanta is ready for us?

We had to say goodbye to Broni this morning. We dropped her off at the airport around 9:30 and then headed back to work the show. I already miss her. Actually, I started missing her the minute we left her at the airport. I am so tickled that she decided to make the trip with us! She very quickly became my “sister friend” and the more we talked, the more we realized how much we truly have in common. Desserts for one thing! Oh my heavens, did we ever enjoy our desserts. Especially that white chocolate bomb from Chilis!

We all had such fun in the booth on Saturday. It was very busy, but it didn’t keep us from greeting old friends and making new ones. We seemed to be the hang out for the SCS’ers to gather! I was able to get a few pictures, but there were some that got by us.
Here’s the team all together. Well all except Candy who just disappeared on us.

But, here’s Candy showing off for us. Honestly I think she might have been shushing someone, but it sure looks like she’s saying something else to me!

Lois a/k/a Clownmom came to see us on Saturday. We met her in person for the first time last year, even though we had chatted with her online for years. It is always great to see Lois – she is such a hoot!

At one time on Saturday, Kirsten, Mimi, and Dina were all in the booth at the same time and we were able to get everyone together for a picture. Actually, Dina spent most of her time with us, and what a pleasure it was to finally meet her and her husband.

Here’s Mr. And Mrs. Rubbernecker (Pat and Dave), sneaking in a well-deserved break on Saturday.

Near the end of the day on Saturday, we finally were able to get Jerri Kay back to the booth and had a photo op! Oh my goodness, what fun to finally meet Jerri Kay!

Sunday was a bit slower, but we still stayed busy working our demos and having fun!

We have all decided that we will be sleeping in tomorrow and just enjoy spending the day together with no running around. I’m looking forward to it!

Well hey there! I know I’ve been MIA a few days and surely owe you an update. Jeanne and I left Tuesday morning bright and early and drove to Broni’s house in South Carolina. OMG Broni just the most adorable person and the more we’ve talked the more we realize we have in common! Yesterday morning we loaded up the car and headed for Orlando. Of course, one of the places I wanted to stop on the way was Savannah. Ever since my girls were in scouts and I was a leader, I have wanted to go to Savannah. I was so excited when I saw Girl Scouts walking down the street in their uniforms – you just know they had been to the Juliette Gordon Low house! We ended up down on the river front for lunch, just couldn’t wait to get that seafood.

While we were having lunch up on this balcony,

coming down river was this marvelous ship. Once we got back to the house, I googled the name and found out that it is used to transport cargo, specifically automobiles from makers to distributors. We never have ships this large on the Ohio River.

Broni and I weren’t satisfied until we cruised around Savannah and found the house from Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. We started off here at the Forsythe Park, thinking it was looking over this one. Nope, but there was this fabulous fountain in the middle.

With Broni as my navigator we started up one the main streets (which have little parks in the center every few blocks) and right there, before our eyes . . . The Mercer House.

We left Savannah after a couple of hours, realizing that the next trip down will have to have at least 2-3 full days to explore the area. Before we left the river area, I was able to snap this picture of the Savannah Cotton Exchange building.

Up on the top of the building is the most intricate detail.

With another stop at Cracker Barrel. This time for pie and coffee, which they were out of just about every dessert. I settled for pecan pancakes and Broni and Jeanne shared the last apple dumpling. Settling in the driver’s seat, knowing that a sugar coma was imminent, we headed south for Orlando.

Today, we had planned on going to Daytona and tour the track, and just mess around on the beach. However, we got a little sidetracked this morning, and decided we would take advantage of the pool in Kittie’s backyard. We had a plan – go for lunch, buy some groceries and pool floats and come back and enjoy the sunshine! Hmmpff. It started to rain while we were in line buying the floats and it hasn’t stopped since. Maybe we shouldn’t have bought the damn things! Needless to say, I crashed and had a wonderful long nap and it now feels like it should be mid-afternoon, when actually it’s 8:30 and we’re throwing stuff on the grill.

Tomorrow we plan on helping to set the booth up for the show. Hopefully in the morning before we have to leave there will be a little floating in the sun time!
