What a fantastic time we had on Friday at the Alabama Bloggers Meet-up!
Lisa Leonard is as sweet as she is beautiful, fabulously fashionable (I want to live in her closet!) and extraordinarily talented. And one of my favorite blogs to follow. She flew in from California for a whirlwind visit to Alabama and orchestrated a fun meetup & cupcake party.
Fun mini cupcakes!
She brought samples of her gorgeous jewelry. I brought water with custom labels for the par-tay.
I met so many friends. Alison, Rachel & Rhoda.
Remember Brittney from the LA trip? Love this girl!
Stephanie from Plain Chicken. Kevin loves this blog. He is always closely hovering when I have it pulled up. If you do one thing, make her 7-up biscuits.
The precious Kelley from The Eclectic Owl. So sweet. So fashionable. My new personal stylist. We rode down together.
Thanks to the suggestion from Stephanie (she knows all the Birmingham hot spots!), Kelley and I stopped by Olexa’s for their Warm Vanilla Buttercream Cake.
If you do one thing, please have a slice of this extremely indulgent cake.
I was planning to come to that meet-up and had to attend a luncheon for work at the last minute. I am so bummed I missed out meeting you and Lisa. I’ve met Rachel and her blog is hilarious. Glad you all had a good time!
Olexa’s is so good! They make the best cakes!
That cakes looks to die for! How do you manage to stay thin while eating all the yummy things you post on your blog?
How fun! I am so far behind in keeping up with my favorite blogs I would have loved to have known about an Alabama meet up. You gals all look amazing and like this was a great time!!! ox

I really like seeing your photo’s. Maybe you could start referencing your clothing for us…? Shirt by:______, Belt by:________I would love to copy you….don’t worry I am several states away! LOL!!!
Maybe someday we’ll shop together!
LOL Sharie! :) The dress is from Pitaya in Chicago. Here’s a better pic of me trying it on in the dressing room! :) Shopping in Chicago. The belt is from Papaya.
You like to torture us with those fantastic photos of those scrumptious cupcakes and cake, huh? Wonder where I can get something like that this time of night? lol…
Sounds like a fun meet-up!

I love Lisa Leonard’s jewelry designs. So glad to read that she’s really as nice as she seems.
You all are so stylish! Thanks for the links, i’ve got some new fav blogs to follow.
It was so wonderful to meet you!! And the water bottles were fabulous. I was so impressed!!
Looks like a great time, and the cupcakes and cake look absolutely delicious! I want to pop over and tell you I’m passing a blog award on to you and I linked to you from my blog. Cheers!
Looks like you girls had a wonderful time. It’s so nice to surround yourself with like minded, kind people who like to have good time.
I am from Louisiana…I’m coming to Alabama in a couple of weeks to meet up with my daugher who just moved to the Montgomery area. We really don’t know what there is to explore there. We are planning on spending a day in Birmingham. Can you give me a few fun places to shop and explore…we love to thrift, junk, dream and eat!!
Can you share how you made the water bottle labels? Thank you! Love them.
Wow, I so wish I could have been there. Thanks for sharing Amanda! I LOVE your blog, I want to be you when I grow up : )
So glad you liked the cake at Olexa’s! It’s definitely a favorite around here. I know I’ve already said it, but it was so much fun to meet you last week. So glad you made the effort to come to town … and hope you enjoyed the cake at Ashley Mac’s if you were able to get over there, too.
I am so envious! Maybe I need to set up a New England bloggers’ meet-up. Who organized yours? any tips?
thanks for always introducing me to new-to-me cool blogs :)
It was a treat to meet someone who loves and respects fonts as much as me! You were a fun and sassy hostess!
This was so fun and great pictures. Didn’t I take that one of you and Lisa? If so, I am so impressed, but I think it was your great camera. I loved meeting you, and this group of people were awesome! Lisa’s jewelry is my favorite!
It was so great to finally meet you! I knew you would LOVE the cake from Olexa’s. It is my all-time favorite cake!
Thanks for introducing me to Lisa Leonard’s jewelry. It is beautiful.
How fun! Lisa is from my area, it would be fun to go to a meet up with her. I have a Lisa Leonard necklace my daughter just got me for my b-day. I love it and wear it everyday.
What a fun meet up. I love Lisa’s jewelry as well!
How fun! I’d love to have been around to meet all y’all Alabama girls. That cake looks amazing.
