So I’m at Cake Fest. And I’m pretty sure I’m delirious from lack of sleep and overwhelming excitement. So if run-on sentences and crazy put-together words that don’t really make sense irk you… click away now.
Note: I haven’t taken a single picture (because I’m a dork like that), so I have no proof of what I’m about to tell you, but I’m about to burst I’m so excited!
Wait – that’s a lie. There is this Instagram picture I took shortly after we pulled out of driveway to make the 3 hour drive down here. So there’s that. Unfortunately, I was already sleep deprived when I started this journey, so I only looked worse the longer the day got.
Anyway… after we got here, our first thing to do was EAT. I hadn’t eaten all day (except for 2 Girl Scout Cookies), so we (my husband and I) met Wendy from Mississippi Sweets and her husband Chuck tonight at Blue Dog Cafe and we shared a fantastic meal (Smoked Duck Quesadillas and Shrimp everything… and cheesecake and well… SO delicious!!!).
We stayed for hours until they were closing the doors and and got to know each other and it was just really GrEaT!!
Well, except the part where about 5 minutes into meeting them I knocked over a FULL Diet Coke and it spilled all over the table because I talk way too BIG with my hands… but really… at least I got that HUGE embarrassing moment out of the way early this weekend, right?
Probably not. There will be more shame, I’m sure. Oh and I probably talked way too much and embarrassed my husband because I have no filter… but you know – whatever. He still loves me no matter what.
Aside from my total lack of grace and social skills, Wendy is such a sweetheart and they’re a fun couple and it was SO fun to just sit and talk “cake shop” and enjoy a meal with other adults and eat good food and
spill drink Diet Coke. Ahem.
Then when we came back to the hotel, Richy & I were walking around trying to find our classroom for in the morning and BOOM… I accidentally met half a dozen amazing other ladies and got all giddy with excitement and pinching myself and squealing inside that a couple of them might have known my name without me telling them (ha!)…
… then kicking myself when I realized I had just driven 3 hours after not much sleep the night before, making the drive without brushing my hair or looking in a mirror… being like a total slob and not being cool at all…
But ya’ll… I hugged Kara and Shawna AND Mayen!! One day I’ll forget that I was in a sweatshirt, jeans and tennis shoes and hair in a clippy and probably black food coloring under my fingernails… SHOOT.ME.NOW.
And now I’m laying in bed at the hotel – unable to sleep (again) – missing my kids – and wishing morning would come quickly for the class I’m SUPER excited to take!!
Oh… and hoping and praying that I’ll not look like a slob (again) … a slob who got no sleep because I’m SO FREAKIN’ WIRED … and still wondering why I didn’t change into something less frumpy for dinner and meeting famous cake peeps.
Oh well… I can’t take it back. At least none of them had cameras (not that they’d want pics with me), but there’s no evidence of my total lack of fashion sense or total dorkishness.
Come to think of it, I never really have any fashion sense (my sister Amanda got ALL of that talent in our family), but I do try a little harder most days… haha!
Oh well… I’m going to attempt to sleep. Only 5 hours til I need to be awake and getting ready for class. And trying to cover the bags under my eyes.
Maybe… just maybe…. I’ll blog again tomorrow night and actually have a picture or two to share!
