Pink Saturday - Blogging Friends Visit and a Apron

Happy Pink Saturday! This Saturday I want to thank our awesome Hostess Beverly from How Sweet the Sound for Blogging Friendships. I had the pleasure of finally meeting the very talented sweet Gabriela Delworth. We have chatted through the Blogosphere for many years and it was so much fun to finally catch up in person. Besides talking about her new fabulous book and flower press we talked about all the wonderful Pink Saturday and Blogosphere friends and about everything. I have to say I did not have enough time to chat! lol I took Gabriela and Ed to dinner at Tony di Napoli. We laughed so hard because we did not get appetizers so Gabriela could eat Magnolia cupcakes and instead there was enough food to feed 10 people! (over exaggeration) lol After dinner we walked to Magnolia and sat inside behind the skating rink at Rockefeller Center and had our lattes and cupcakes and they gave me a beautiful scarf and pretty Indian goodies. Before Gabriela and Ed left NY they came to "surprise" me at my office! I had the most shocked look but was so happy to have them for 1/2 hour more! It was too short of a visit.

The Next Blog friend is Connie from "Living Beautifully". What a lovely lady and talented too. I was so thrilled to get an email from her saying I won an apron from her blog! Get out...really? It was pretty in the picture but I have to tell you how gorgeous it is in person. Thank you Connie!!

Happy Pink Saturday Grace Sweetie...
Oh my gosh, what a gorgeous share of you and Gabriela. Oh my goodness I was just screaming at Gabriela's place when I found out she had the pleasure of meeting you my SWEET friend. Oh my gosh, she is a lucky ducky. I so enjoy going along on your trips about NYC, you always make me feel like I am right there with you. How fun for Gabriela to have been there.

Those cupcakes look SO yummy, and I can't even imagine sitting outside the Rockafeller Center having latte and cupcakes and watching all the beauty surrounding me. Thank you SO much for sharing sweet friend.

One day perhaps I too, will be coming to NYC. You never know. Country hugs and SO much love, Sherry

How fun to get to actually spend time with Gabriela! Great pic of the two of you. And sweet Connie is one of my bestest friends. We've never actually met but became friends when I sold her some fabric about 7 or 8 yrs. ago and then we were both in a chat group together. Now we call each other "Sis" and she has adopted my mom. A kinder person you will never meet. Love that apron!

Happy PS!
