Hello....you had me at cocktail!
If it gives you any idea to how crazy things have been since I got back from ALT (and when I mean crazy - I mean my spinning out of control and my lack of focus), I started writing this post a week ago!
One of my favorite moments at ALT definitely was the first evening at the interactive dinner with Kelly Wilkinson and Sarah Flotard. I met a lot of fabulous ladies, decorated some fun dinner napkins, pickled some scallions and ate some really delicious food. They sent us home with our pickled scallions (that I know have a mild obsession with ...like seriously...what else can I put these on - never was a big pickled fan before - Carlos now thinks I have a problem. Did you know that you can put them on homemade pizza, carnitas, roast beef sandwiches and on a hot dog...oh yeah...you can*), our napkin, a book of recipes from the evenings delicacies and a copy of Kelly's book, Weekend Handmade (which I can't wait to dig into)! Thank you to our lovely hosts for such a wonderful evening and the perfect way to kick off ALT!
*Forgive the four sentences that ended up being dedicated to pickled scallions!
**The most shameful thing I have to admit is that these (besides the pictures I posted earlier out my hotel balcony) were the ONLY pictures I took at ALT. I brought my camera and two lenses because I wanted to capture every moment. I guess I was too busy being caught up in all of the moments to pull out my camera. The rest of my pictures that I will post will be from my camera phone. C'est la vie!
