Coolest Ladies in Michigan

On Friday, I drove up to Grand Rapids to meet up with some of the coolest ladies residing in the State of Michigan for the Michigan Blogger Meetup. I seriously feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to meet them all, and I am hoping for, and expecting, some really great friendships to follow from this past weekend.

After a later than anticipated departure (I hate the Secretary of State), and a longer than anticipated drive, and the to be expected driving in circles to figure out exactly where the venue was, I finally arrived at the St. Cecilia's Music Center just in time to meet the ladies inside and sit down to wait for the show. We used this time to chat and get to know each other a little bit more, and of course compliment each other on amazing outfit choices. I'm still smiling about Kate's flower covered dress that made her look like a cupcake in the best possible way.

The actual fashion show, may have been low on fashion, but the hair and make-up were amazing and the band, Alexis, kept things entertaining. We were practicing the lead singer's dance moves for the rest of the night.

After the show, we headed over to a local bar to continue the chatting and have some drinks and appetizers. We also all received a bag of goodies from Tieka who organized the whole event. Following this we headed up to a neon lit walkway where we all received the Tieka Treatment for our outfit photos. We capped off the night with dancing and lots of laughter.
