Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!

I am so excited to share with y’all all the fun at Blue Plum + the fabulous people I met that I could not wait until Monday to post this blog! Oh–Blue Plum was plum-ty of fun–see what I did there *wink*

Now, before I get started, I must ask--are you ready? *wink* Note:  That was my shameless way of including this photo I took at the festival *wink* I loved all the sidewalk writing at the Urban Art Throw Down.

To start out--the ice cream to my right in this photo wins the "Most Adorable Food Truck" award. I could not get over just how precious it was! Oh, it was love at first sight *wink*

Speaking of food...this, in my opinion, is taking bacon a little too far. Personally, I prefer my bacon at breakfast with eggs *wink* I am sure my mom will also have something to say about this interesting festival food on her blog *wink*

Also while Blue Plum-ing it up, I met local blogger Fifty, Not Frumpy. Susan Street and I have never met each other; however, we started chatting like we had known each other for years! It was a plum good time--see what I did there *wink*

In addition to the amazing graffiti art, vendors, and snacks--the music was UNBELIEVABLY great. Here are clips from some of my favorite performers.

And...another selfie while watching some of the afternoon performers. Of course, I had to change my outfit for the night activities *wink*

I had a total BLAST at Blue Plum 2014. Next year, I hope to see my two favorite music artists/bands there–Gabriel Tajeu and The Bonfire Orchestra *wink* Now, that would make for an absolutely blissful Blue Plum *wink*
