Meetup with Lisa Leonard

Lisa Leonard Designs hosts Alabama Bloggers Meetup

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.

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 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!!

    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.

    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!
