who, what, where, when?

My camera almost exploded this weekend, due to overwork! Thursday night was Leola's Christmas Open House, and Friday morning Inspirational Home started their Open House for Christmas. It's not too late if you haven't made it. They will both be open Sunday afternoon!

Here are pictures of some of us crazy area bloggers. Dulcy, Me (munchkin), Jan, and Katie. We were all squealing like little kids at Christmas, well, hey, it was Christmas!

(somebody give me a stool to stand on PLEASE!)

Mandy was there too, but didn't get her in for the group photo. I was standing beside her in this shot, but she is so pretty, and my picture was so goofy, that I opted out of this one. I'll let Mandy shine in this one.

But I wanted to show you the cute little hat I found at Leola's. I'm not really a "hat person", but I just couldn't resist! Pam makes the cutest accessories and T-shirts, and jackets! I'll be posting photos of all of her great creations soon. But had to show you this first.

Leola's white wonderland!

Just had to give you a little tease!

I'm so excited!...
 I just got off the phone with Anne!
You know what it's like to talk to someone
that you feel like you've known your whole life,
 but never met?
That was us!
Love ya, Annie Girl

Have a great "rest of the weekend"!


  1. Backatcha! I was excited, too!
    If I hadn't had to pee like a racehorse, I could've talked to you for hours and hours!
    Love ya,

  2. Hey Debra. Oh' that looked like so much fun. You are a litty bitty thing aren't you. You're so cute. I see lots of smiles and fun. The hats adorable. Wish I could have been there with ya'll.

    Hugs and more hugs...Tracy :)

  3. Girlfriend, I am vertically challenged as well. In all group photos I look like someone should be holdling my hand!
    You are too stinking cute in that hat...I love it. I also love the white bicycle and am going to steal, I mean borrow that idea...just watch me! Give Jan a hug from me!
    P.S. Together we'd make a perfect set of bookends...Frick and Frack!

  5. Debra,honey, you are cute as a button! Love the hat and the picture of you with your blogger buddies! I can't imagine life without all of you sweet friends! Love to all and have a blessed day!

  6. Sorry but you are a little vertically challenged. I love the hat picture but you really do look like one of your daughters -- or maybe a combination of both. The hat looks great on you. I worked today with Kenda & Judy & don't think I can remember being so tired. It was a beautiful & busy day -- thankfully. Thanks so much for coming in. Jan
