GNO recap

I’m so excited to tell you all about our 1st ever Arizona Girls Night Out, last Friday.
And I must say it was a blast!
Hosts and Special Guests:
Kristyn (Lil Luna) was responsible for all of the great details of the night and everyone, myself included, was blown-away by what she produced! It’s even more amazing when you realize she had a baby two weeks ago! Shall I hand over “My Insanity” title to her? I don’t think I could have done that!

We were lucky to have several other talented ladies lend their talents to the success of the evening:
Decor and cupcake display from The Tom Kat Studio, delicious cupcakes from Modern Cupcake and welcome banner from The 2 Savvy Sisters.

All of the women in attendance were so wonderful and creative and just happy to be together!

Of course, they were pretty excited about the awesome items in their swag bags and giveaway prizes!

(Not sure why I look half-asleep in this picture, I was totally having a blast!)

Here are some of the ladies at our table. I was lucky to get to sit by Tauni, one of the organizers of Creative Estates, and get her to give me free advice  pick her brain about PR and some of the things she had spoken about to us earlier in the day at the conference. She really knows her stuff, and is so nice!
I had to get this picture of me with Amy (Idea Room), Jen (Tatertots & Jello), and Megan (Brassy Apple), notice none of us is bending down in this picture! This is the tall bloggers club! Megan is 6 foot, so you can kind of go from there, except I think we were all wearing heels. I’m in good company, no? (Truly, they are all amazing ladies!)

We also were able to raise $600 for sweet Kate McRae– that feels so good! Some of our sponsors even made special gifts for Kate. They are all so wonderful!

Here I am with my partners in crime, Stephanie and Kristyn, who are both fabulous to work with!

The success of this event has us even more thrilled about our next one, scheduled for June 17th- more info to come on that soon!

Edited to show you this picture of me:

I totally look like I’m serenading everyone on the karaoke machine—which I totally would have done if Lara {Less Cake More Frosting} would have come up and done the duet she owes me. Maybe next time. 🙂

But the real reason for this postscript, is to let you know that you can link up your own posts about Girls Night Out over on the website! What are you waiting for?

    Looks like fun! Do you, or any of your talented blogging friends have any ideas for a somewhat sophisticated Harry Potter party? Meg, being Meg, has lots of ideas. But since she is saddled with me as a partner in crime, we could use some direction as far as all the cool paper stuff that I see in your posts. Thanks for any help.
