Blingin' B*tches SPQ 2010
We are back from our Sweet Potato Queen weekend! OMG, I had the time of my life. Sister, if this event is not on your bucket list.....it should be. TIP: Just start planning early! Go to Jill Conner Brown's site at www.sweetpotatoqueen.com and check it all out. OK-I'm going to give you a little (very small) snap shot of our trip.
Arrived in Style-Jackson, MS Airport
Attended Meet and Greet at Hilton
Went to Big Hat Luncheon
Met Lots of Women from all over the country
Attended the Ball in Fine Attire
Seriously, that was the funnest thing I think I have ever done as a grown up. I loved the crowd, the children we gave beads to, the little old men who wanted kisses, the young men who wanted pics with us, the women who clapped for us-all of it. I wanted to do it again right when we finished. Right then and there I knew it......I was so meant to be a queen. LOL
We attended a pajama party that night and danced our butts off! There was a live band that played all the great Motown oldies! I don't have pics of that night yet but here is Bubbles and Cheri at the Bathrobe brunch the next morning.
Heard Jill speak, she inspired us, moved us to tears....not a dry eye in the room!
There is not enough room or time to tell you about all the fun we had. I'm already gearing up for next year! You better believe it!
