Got a few pix to share from my weekend in the Phoenix area for Sparkle Bella. So much to tell and show! Friday we went to Melrose Vintage where Kim had a big surprise awaiting us!! Several Bella attendees and lots of local fun gals we know met us there for a special meet and greet! It was so great seeing everyone! Had to shop in this great store, too. Check it out:
Lovely stylin' huh? So beautiful in there.
Here is the long check out line filled with lots of happy bellas!
Kim set up this adorable table in all of it's loveliness.
Maija and Kim---such happy smiles! So great to see Maija. She attended Silver Bella 2006 so it was great to see her again.
Carolyn and Helle. Helle was a weekend bella, too. Fellow Danish gal--gotta love that.
Michelle, Tena, Kim and Helle. What a perfectly shabby photo, huh?!
Oh I shall miss that store! But I know I'll be back again someday. Diane, the Owner, was so gracious to let us invade...thank you Diane!
Despite the sweltering temps that afternoon, we ventured onward for some great shopping. Good stuff. Old stuff. Keepers.
We met up with Cori and had a fabulous dinner at Los Somberos. Great margaritas and authentic mexican meal.
We won't talk about lunch that day. Well, it was yummy but the stunt I pulled wasn't. I fell down 2 cement steps and I have the 2 huge bruises on my knees to prove it! Such a dork!
I will post more pix later of Day Two of the weekend. Gotta spread this out, ya know. :)
In other news, my Step Dad had his surgery yesterday. A cancerous nodule in one lung was removed. They saw others and are testing them now. Maybe they are lung cancer or lymphoma cancer or who knows. This is why they need to be tested. We are crossing our fingers and praying for the best. Love him so much. I wish I was there so bad.
But, it's also great to be home after the AZ trip. I think Andrew's hair got lighter and Drake grew an inch while I was gone!
