friends and flowers.

This post has waaayyy to many pictures, but guess what? They are all worth the look. This weekend was an epic blast. EngageOKC hosted a fabulous OKC Blogger Speed Mentoring Event on Saturday. I had such a great time seeing many of my blogger friends, old and new, and meeting a few new faces. I seriously could not be more pumped about the group of creative bloggers we have in the area. OKC is changing in so many ways, and this group is going to make such a huge impact on it! 

Falen and me. 

After the event, we made our way through the sea of construction, Redhawks game attenders, Thunder Playoff fans, the Oklahoma City Arts Festival crowd, and a QuinceaƱera (true story) to Fuzzy's Taco Shop. I ate at truck load of tortilla chips, two delicious soft tacos, and washed it all down with a top shelf margarita and...oh, right a Patron. Classy. 

Don't worry, an entire table of blogger and all we had were smartphone to take photos with. Oops. 
From L to R: Melissa, Sally, Rachel, me, Melissa, Brittney, and Stephanie

We were really loud, laughed a lot, and made a lot of people stare, but I had the time of my life. These ladies are such a blessing to my life! I'm tearing up, in a non creepy way, so its time to move landscaping! 

WE ARE FINALLY DONE. 26 foot flower bed, built from the ground up (no, really)...I partially feel like I could punch the previous home owners for not putting in a bit of landscaping, but then I wouldn't have been able to plant tons and tons of my favorite flower, lilies!! I'll be quiet now, enjoy.

Ok, first, the flowers are FAB! I really need to work on our beds soon - but it will have to wait until after this upcoming weekend.

Second, I also had the most wonderful evening! I totally needed a break from the chaos that has surrounded me the last few weeks. This IS an amazing group, and we are going to do fabulous things! There is a reason we were brought together. I just know it.

Flower bed looks awesome!! I really do love it! :) And that blogger meet up looks like sooo much fun! Dang! Yes another reason I need to move to OK. ;) I can't wait for NYC, I am BEYOND excited!!!! :) I've never met a real-life blogger… more of just an urban myth around these parts.
