too fun!! 🙂

But you all wanted to hear the best story of all, didn't you???

okay, here it is!!

We walked up to Valori Wells' gorgeous Karavan booth and just gawked at the beauty. And then someone (either Brooke or Julie) said, "ohhh look! Ty Pennington is here!!!" Sure enough, Ty was standing there next to Valori with his "posse" all around him. He was talking to another quilter about  his show and I sort of started walking up toward Valori. Now I met her back in May when Elliot was making his rounds at Spring Market. Valori was gracious enough to take a picture with Elliot. (for that story, go to Amanda's blog here!!!)

Anyway, as I approached Valori, she turned to me and the crowd and said, "I bet she wants her picture with Ty, too!!" In my quick-witted manner, I replied, "No, actually I want my picture with you, Valori, but if Ty wants to be in it, he most certainly can!!" Ohhhhhh the response I got from that was wonderful!!!!

and here is the picture!!! (thanks, Julie, for taking it!!)

Aren't we all gorgeous??? And if you can take your eyes off of Ty for a second, look at Valori's skirt! It's made from her new knits…soooo cute!!!!

…and that's just the beginning…stay tuned all week for more updates!!! And tomorrow, get ready for another giveaway!! yipeeeee!!!
