More from AAJMS...and an outing or two...May 25th, 2010 in blog
OK...the dust/junk has settled a bit, and I'm trying to get caught up... So I wanted to share some more of the faces from our week at AAJMS...and some "around the town" pics too.
These pictures are just bits and pieces of our time in Minneapolis. Amy has shared some wonderful glimpses into the event - and I wanted to add a few more.
I want to thank Gretchen for our afternoon whirlwind tour of The French Flea - and Antiques Downtown (we all came out with shopping bags full there!). We also got to spend time with her best friend, Carolyn (great to meet you Carolyn!). Gretchen is a wonderful tour guide, providing Janis, Terri and I with refreshments and magazines to peruse while we were on the road (she thought of everything...). We all found some fabulous stuff and had BIG junking fun together (note the dumpster diving pic...ha ha!) Next time we'll make it to Hunt & Gather.
I gotta say that the highlight (or highlights) of my trip was meeting (for the first time) - Janis, Laurel, AND Missy, Cassie, Andrea & Lynette (aka Junkfest Girls), as well as some of the JMS members - ninarae, Marge (met Marge last summer too)...and I know I'm forgetting someone - there were so many people - not to mention everyone associated with the AAJMS event - what a group of talented and hardworking people - they pulled off a huge event with great STYLE!
In the midst of all this busy-ness - we all got together at Olive Garden one evening - we packed 16 junkers around a table (the hostess put us in a room way back in the corner of the restaurant...did we look like we were going to make a lot of noise??? ha ha - I guess we did!).
My second trip to the Twin Cities was fabulous - and it was fun sharing it with my friend and junk partner, Terri. We were busy, busy, busy the entire time with the Gala, a little antiquing, the Sale, classes, a trip to the Mall of America (now I can take that off my bucket list - note to self...do not go to the Mall of America on the day before Mother's Day - ha ha - wow...was it busy - but fun), the Mother's Day brunch, fashion show, and a little late night pizza with Miss Sue and Shelley (the Queen of Quantity)...oh...and movie night (which I slept through...). So, did we pack a lot into five days or what??? It was all good...I mean GRRREEEAAAAAATTT (kind of a Tony the Tiger thing - ha ha)!! Thanks so much Sue and company for a great junking time! Looking forward to our next adventure!
Have a great day!
