Road Trip to Birmingham!

Remember when I told you about the Alabama blogger meet-up with Lisa Leonard?
Well, it was a BLAST!

After having breakfast here in Huntsville, Amanda and I headed down to Birmingham.
We were super excited to meet Lisa Leonard and all of the fantastic bloggers in Alabama!
Who knew there were so many!?!?


Here are the lovely hosts with Lisa.

Rachel, Lisa, AmandaRhoda

Rachel from Grasping for Objectivity is as cute as a button and so sweet!


Amanda is so fun! She is full of life. She took all of the pictures you're seeing on here!
And if you love her photos...you'll be drooling over her recipes!


Rhoda is such a warm person - and beautiful!
And we ironically graduated from the same  high school in Georgia!


Lisa is even sweeter in person than I imagined. 
You definitely need to check out her blog!


And her jewelry is gah-geousYou have to say it with a Southern accent ;)

I met some wonderful ladies too!
Like Katherine from Grass Stains.  I could tell immediately that she was a sweetheart :)


Robin from Alabama Slacker Mama and Jamie from Jamie's Rabbits
kept me giggling the entire time!  They were so much fun!


Becca was a doll!  I wish we could have chatted more!


I also got to meet Tammy from The Inkling Network & her sweet little boy Isaiah!
Tammy & I are blog friends and it was so great to finally meet it person!
I love reading her blog and her etsy shop has the most adorable items!

I think Isaiah stole the show ;)


I also met Alison from Ingredients, Inc. who has some wonderful recipes!
She's even having a book published that will be out Spring 2011...I know, so talented!

Steph from Plain Chicken was a riot!  And I loved meeting another
blogger with a day job like me!  She has some fantastic recipes, too!


Overall, I had such an amazing time meeting some wonderful
ladies and making some fantastic memories :)
