Hello, fabulouses, and welcome back to the blog!
This weekend, I attended the 4U Ultimate Girls Day Out event at the beautiful Charles building in downtown Johnson City, Tennessee. Although it was tempting to stay home because of the snow, I knew I could not miss getting dressed up and shopping all the fabulous booths! PLUS this is the first time this event has ever been hosted in Tennessee–it originally took place in just Atlanta, Georgia.
Oh, I had so much fun at the event and met so many marvelous women that I cannot help but share it with y’all, my lovely readers! Now, join me as we take a little VIP Scrapbook look at the fun time I had at the 4 U Ultimate Girls Day out in Johnson City.
The VIP with Toni Stone, the founder of 4U Ultimate Girls Day Out, at the first ever Johnson City event. On a total fashionista note–I love Toni’s scarf! So cute!
These handmade Flower Keepers by potter Michael Gamble are absolutely precious! I wish there would have been something around like this when I was a little kid for my mom :) Check out some more of Michael’s awesome work @ www.michaelgamblepottery.com
Funky and fabulous coffee cups handmade by Michael Gamble.
Kenya Patterson, a handbag Sales Manager at Dillard’s (Knoxville), modeling a super hot NYDJ frock. Kenya could so be a model–so gorgeous!
Tanya Rathbun (Trinity Arts Center, Johnson City), the VIP, and Penny Woods (Penny Woods Skincare Center) at the event. Oh, these two women are absolutely inspiring and positive! I cannot wait to interview them for a hopeful article on www.sixteenandsuccessful.org
Reedemables had a precious booth at the Ultimate Girls Day Out event! Their store is so amazing too! Check out their Facebook page for more info + pictures! www.facebook.com/Redeeming
The VIP with one of the lovely ladies from Scarves for Missions from the Dava Lee Russell Outreach (www.davaleerussellministries.org) in Jonesborough, Tennessee. This woman literally gave me chill bumps talking about their work and passion to spread the awesomeness of the Lord, our God. I always get chill bumps when a sweet lady hugs me and tells me “God bless you”. :) Note: the wonderful scarf in the photo above was handmade by Susan Thomas, the scarf crafter for Scarves for Missions.
Fellow blogger, Liz Bushong, showing attendees how to make large tissue flowers. SO cute and fun! Check out her blog, www.lizbushong.com, for more DIY ideas.

P.S.–I am still having a hard time with the fact it snowed in November. This Mississippi-raised gal is not used to snow…much less on the first of November! BUT it was a good excuse to wear my blue fur shawl *wink*
