It’s been a busy week (or two) for the ladies in Fairhope! First of all, we celebrated the 3rd Annual Girl’s Night Out (GNO) which brought out hundreds and hundreds of ladies to shop-shop-shop in Downtown Fairhope.
The town was swathed in pink, and music, friendship, food and libations were flowing. For $20, each participant received a tote bag with a bright pink T-shirt, a few other goodies, and a coupon book that was hot-full of great deals at local stores and restaurants.
The City of Fairhope hosts the shopping extravaganza once a year, and this is the first time I’ve participated. It was so much fun, so make sure you watch for it again next year.
My shopping partner was Karyn, who loves many of the same things I do, so of course, I had to shove her out of the way to get what I wanted. (You know I’m just kidding. Karyn works out and did all the shoving!) smile.
I found this adorable Fairhope charm in Brenny’s Jewelry. Hint – hint – you-know-who!
What’s that you say? You like my dress? Well, look what I found! I couldn’t talk Karyn into being twins, so if you run down to Simply Divine, you can get it and we can start a dance group.
And then of course, later in the week, New York Times best-selling author Mary Kay Andrews showed up to speak at Page and Palette and sign copies of her new book, The Weekenders. You can read my review HERE.
There was a packed crowd of well over 100 people in Page and Palette’s new “Book Cellar” Which didn’t go unnoticed by Mary Kay who said she loved the new bar-in-a-bookstore concept. After speaking about the book and entertaining us with hilarious stories . . .
There was my darling Karyn again, looking totally coordinated with Mary Kay Andrews. Two of my favorite authors together, looking great.
I showed this photo to MKA and she cracked up. All the men in my house had gone fishing and I had a lovely relaxing day (after I scrubbed rugs, did laundry and packed away winter things) and was lounging around, reading The Weekenders and eating bon-bons, when Lois Lane hopped up on the sofa with me and gave me the “four-o’clock stare” which tells me it’s time to feed her . . . or else!
No rest for the weary Mom who just wants to read a good book!
Hope you all have a happy, wonderful weekend!
