Holidays in CedarTown...Recap of last 3 days

These last three days have been busy ones! I thought I better go ahead and blog about it all before my memory starts to fade (seems like since having kids, it does that easier and  easier  ha!)
 We were very busy selling our designs over in Ruston, LA at the Cedar Creek School 25th annual Holidays in CedarTown event. These folks sure know how to treat their vendors!!
Here is student Brooke Evans in the blue helping deliver bottled water to us.
Everyone was very sweet and welcoming... Esp Alice and Linda!! Thank you Ladies :)
  We were in a wonderful spot near the stage
and got to see and hear all the activities going on. One of these were Chef Cory and Mrs Kay Robertson
cooking and carrying on! They were part of the brunch on Thurs morning. Across the aisle from us were Laura Glen (she and I used to use the same framer in Ruston many moons ago -Greg Hudson with Visual Designs), some sweet girls from El Dorado  and Leslie Groan with Cutie Patootie. Here is Leslie in the Cypress Sweatshirt and Amanda Morgan with Loving Her Lashes in our new camo deer baseball tee.
They were all decked out in their Mr P's on Sat!! So cool. Behind our booth was my friend Katie Bonnette with Rodeo Boutique.
She carrys our adult line in Ruston. Adore her and her clothes!!! Also got to see Kim from The Townsend House. Love her store!! She supported me way back when I used to paint plates of people's homes. Here is she and Emalee.
I have a feeling we will be taking a road trip soon.... I enjoyed meeting Samantha Lantrip.
She was a vendor there with Rachel Huber- they were selling Matilda Jane. I'm excited bout some cute pants I ordered for Phoebe to go with some of our tees. Here are Samantha's gorgeous girls- Love!!
Finally got to meet Kelly Moore Clark too. Love her bags-I have the orange Two Suez and use it every single day. 

  We had a ton of help--Big thanks to Amy Keifenheim who worked hard every day and even drove back to West Monroe to fetch more sweatshirts when we were running low
. Here is Amy with Jordan Raborn.
And my Mom, Anne Sanders in her Tiger Sweatshirt
, and adorable (and yes-Pregnant) Meg Moore. She is wearing her Bulldawg baseball tee.
What a blessing they all were!! I also need to thank my sister, Holly and Marsha Roberts for helping take care of our kiddos back home.
  Lots of faces in the crown---I was so excited, maybe a little too excited, to meet Tyler Summitt and his wife AnDe.
He is the new Lady Techster Basketball coach and son of Pat Summitt.  I was a complete DORK and proceeded to tell him about my 6th grade Lady Techster basketball camp days with Leon Barmore. He was very kind and acted interested!! hahaha  Cant wait to come over to the TAC and cheer he and the girls team on!! Also saw Lori McIntosh, Sarah Jeffords who has the awesome little GoldieMocs that Phoebe is always wearing. She got one of our Coon onesies and posted about it on Instagram. Yay!!
Here is Erin and friends-sweet supporters of Cedar Creek
And little Hunter in his Squirrel Shirt
And Anna in her deer camo baseball tee and vest

  I got to see a bunch of my ole sorority sisters. Here is sweet Lillian Greer
who came over from Delhi to this event. She was so sweet and even took some of our dresses back with her to Delhi to the New Attitude Salon and Boutique for an Open House on Sunday. Loved seeing Amy Stegall, Lynsey Pippen, Carrie White, Robin Collinsworth, Heather Shaw, to name a few. We saw some friends from the Twin Cities like Lisa Bannister and her daughter AnnaClaire,
, gorgeous Jill May wearing her Duck Taylor sweatshirt,
cute pregnant Amber Bass, The Deal Family, and  our cousin Jennifer Miller and her best bud Mallory from MSalon, I was amazed too at how many people we met who drove over from Shreveport for this event. What a great Reputation it has! We got to see Amber and Kristie, Katie McGowan, and Leslie Hestle.  The cool girls from Iron Cactus in Calhoun were serving lunch on Friday.
Yep-wearing our special designed tee just for them :)
Kathy came by in our cool color block deer sweatshirt tom last year.
That was always one of my favs!!. And here is pretty Jimmie Mayzel in our new Cougar sweatshirt

  When it was time to tear down, Brent came on over with Robby in tow. Love my crazy brother in law!!!
We got it all broke down pretty quick-thanks to the extra help of Rachel Walker
~She and I were in a wedding together many moons ago and hadn't seen each other in years. So glad we got to reconnect at this event. She and her hubs now live in Ruston and her daughter goes to Cedar Creek. 
  I def learn a bunch every time we do one of these things and look forward to coming back to CedarTown next year. Promise to have sweatshirts for the kiddos next time!!!
Brent and I in our matching duds-wasnt planned!!! We ended the event like we always do after something like this-over take out from The Mohawk. Love that place and their gumbo and shrimp delight. 

Shop & Support local :)
We sold out of quiet a few of our sweatshirts, but will be getting more  in soon. We will be posting when that happens on Instagram and Facebook

We are very thankful to all of our friends, family and fans!!!!
Thanks for reading,
