28 Things - Including Haven

1. I wasn't planning on going to Haven this year.

2. But then I won a ticket! Thank you Bliss-n-Tell! Thank you so much!

3. The first thing I learned was that I MISS CREPE MYRTLE!

4. I've had a little 'bloggers block' since I got home though.  Perhaps a bit of a fog.

5. I'm hoping a little 28 Things will get me started.

6. I had a great time at Haven.

7. My roommates were fun, really admirable women.

8. And cute too!

9. There was lots of SERIOUS conversation...

Lisa, Concord Cottage; Susan, Oh My! Creative; Jeanette, Snazzy Little Things

10. There was covert activity

Who are these women?????/

I think they might be spies.

11. There was lots of engagement with sponsors

Thanks Home Depot and Moen!

12. Providing lots of weird pictures on Instagram

13. I took a picture with my favorite blogger that I don't know.

Sandra - Sawdust Girl

14. We just take pictures with each other.

15. I think we may not be photogenic.

16. It took like 8 pictures to find one that was acceptable.

17. She's a little bit like Superman.

18. I met two chicks who I want to be my neighbors.

19. I went to the Ryobi Beach #RyobiRocksHaven

20. What happens at Ryobi Beach stays at Ryobi Beach.

21. The 11 1/2 hour drive down was exhilarating.

22. The 12 1/2 hour drive home was exhausting.

23. Thus the 4 days to recover

24 The Shasta Daisies were blooming when I got home.

25. I have a lot of these malformed daisies.

26. And I'm left with one of life's biggest questions . . .

27. How does a bird poop directly in the center of ONE daisy?????

28.  I'm glad to be home!

What's been up with you? Did your daisies bloom? Did you go to Haven? Did I meet you? You're going to have to remind me, because...

29. I left my little name tag bag (with all the business cards I collected) at the last restaurant we went to , , , and no one turned it in. So I guess it's gone forever.  

Goodbye little Haven nametag bag.

Looks like you had fun!
I have no daisies-pooped on or otherwise.
I did not go to Haven, as I prefer my own.
I love my crepe myrtles.
Lost your bag of sad. ;(
Rest up and enjoy your weekend!

Karen, You make me laugh! Do you know HOW much FUN we would have if we were neighbors! I think we would get in trouble! Miss you!

Unknown said...

I'm sorry you lost your bag. I'm definitely missing cards too. I'm not quite sure how that happened.

Leslie Harris said...

Karen I loved this post, your fun personality shines through it and it makes me think twice about going to one of these blogging conferences. It does look like a great time. sorry you lost your bag of goodies, sounds like something I would've done too. :)

Unknown said...

Thanks for the heads up on the no-reply blogger status. Hopefully, I fixed it.

Vickie @ Ranger 911 said...

It sounds like you had a wonderful time at the convention. I can see why it's taking you a while to recuperate!

I've got lots of deformed flowers, too. What's with that?

Susan @ Oh My! Creative said...

Great pictures of us all! So glad I got to meet are a great treasure!

I was exhausted and happy to be home too!


Patricia @ 9th and Denver said...

I was so excited to see your post pop into my feed! I love reading your 28+ Things... always.
This looks like such fun.
I get encouraged to go all the time... a free ticket would be wonderful. I'd love to be your neighbor...or meet you in person.
I don't have daisies...but I have crepe myrtle trees. They are blooming crazy this year!
...see you, Pat

Kirby Carespodi said...

Whoever took your bag? Is secretly in love with you. He is going to read every post and pine from afar.
I have a crepe myrtle and I thought my husband killed it, but it's coming back, so maybe it will be okay. I also have lots of daisies. And the most giant squash vine in NC. I think it's secretly trying to kill us in the night.

Danni@SiloHillFarm said...

Sounds like you had a blast! I have complete faith that you will come right out of your bloggers block with a bang!

Shannon said...

Missing hanging with all you lovely ladies from Haven!

Gwen @ The Bold Abode said...

It was a total blast! And it was so nice chatting with you!

Bliss said...

Sorry about you little bag and your centered bird poop.
