Queen of Pink

I have met the most amazing friends through this
blogging world...
It's our sisterhood, where like minded individuals come
together. Gathering with other women, kindred spirits,
that I feel like I've known my whole life. Friendships that I will
treasure forever.
Many of you know Claudie from Bubbling Over.
To know her is to love her. Well... Claudie came all
the way from Canada to celebrate her birthday in
Saint Augustine, Florida.

And celebrate, we did!!

We had Deborah from Vintage Soul,

Lisa from AKAWEST,

Jeanne of Backyard Neighbor drove from NC,

Julie made the trip from Canada, too.
This hunk of burning love was there waiting for us.

Lunch ~ carribean salad with shrimp ... looks yummy, right?

It was deee-licious!
Pink Flirtini's for everyone!!
Flat Stella had a little too much, got a little crazy. First she
nibbled Julie's ears, sat on Deborah's hat, fell down my shirt,
then she was caught trying to get Mr. Magpie's wallet!!
Stella, Stella, Stella.....

Then we were off to Mrs. Magpie's for the Party!

If you know Mrs. Magpie, then you know that every detail
was attended. And I do mean "every" detail.
Mrs. Magpie made all of this possible. What a
beautiful party. We all wore our pink flower headbands.
Deborah with Becky from Holiday in the Sun.

And the Pinkest of them all....

It was the most wonderful weekend in St. Augustine,
with all of these other lovely blogging ladies.

This pirate ship passed by and we could hear them singing
pirate songs!!

I couldn't leave St. Augustine without riding the carousel.

We had sooo much fun!!
Meeting in person for the first time was such a treat!
Bloggers are the best people... don't you find??

Aye ??
Important note~
I borrowed the best photos from Julie...
try as I might, I just am not a great photographer.
Looking forward to seeing all of the great photos on Julie's
blog when she gets back to Canada.
More to come...


  1. Thank you for this post, Teresa! You all made memories to last a lifetime!

  3. Looks like fun! Oh, wait I was that dorky looking woman in the flowered shirt, so I experienced the wonderful day first hand. Hehehe!

  4. Wish I could have been there! You should have given my friend Ruthie a call!! It was still cool to read about how much fun you all had!
    Take care,

  5. Hi ! I am in central florida and had the honor of spending the day with the birthgirl ! What a fun and crazy gal. Becky and I live in the same town. I just moved here a few months ago from Michigan. (and lived outside of Atlanta once as well!)

    The Airboat ride was way fun and a bit windy lol ! Getting to know Claudie, Julie and Becky was fantastic.
    It's nice "meeting" you!

  6. Ummm...that's BIRTH DAY GIRL! LOL...Fun but long day! ; )

  7. Love your Grandmother's quote about the skunks. Awwww Teresa....... I'll hang around with stink from your area anytime.
    The more that rubs off the better. Loved every moment with you and we are still laughing and sharing stories. When are you bringing your clan to Canada? We're ready to show you our town.

    Claudie says she loves your pictures. I think I saw those on facebook! What's mine is yours honey. We're sittin in plantation doin nuttin but drinkin a little moonshine.

    Hugs, Julie and Claudie

  8. Hi Teresa, I love your post and you did a great job telling our blogging birthday party story. Maybe this will start a trend.

    I posted about the party for pink Saturday. I had a hard time limiting my photos. come over.

    I am still in Florida and I have to say I am anxious to get home. We have that wedding on Sunday and then home on Monday. I have loved my stay here and especially the party. I am very happy we met. You would have thought we had been friends for years.

    Have a happy weekend.
    Hugs, Jeanne

  9. Looks like it was a fun party! Thanks for sharing the pictures and the details!


  10. Teresa, I'm going to try to post to you again. I have no idea what has happened with my previous posts! It's happened on some other blogs, too. I checked back to see if it was here, but it's not.

    Anyhow, I enjoyed reading this and seeing the pics. We really did have fun, didn't we? I've been laughing thinking about the guy in the restaurant with the rolling name tag. LOL!

    Sending hugs your way. I hope you get this!


    Sheila :-)

  11. Hi Teresa, just came over to wish you a wonderful Easter weekend. I have been home since Monday night. The wedding was lovely and I was happy to attend the happy event.
    I have been waiting to hear from Claudie or Julie. I just want to know they arrived home safe and sound.

    Hugs, Jeanne

  12. Hey girlfriend, we just got home last night around 9pm. What a trip. Julie is editing photos in the guest cabin. She has over 2,000 to do : )
    Loved your sweet post. Gee my head is getting just a little bigger with all that pink around me lol
    Sending my love and thank you again for being part of my 54th birthday sista.
    Love you all
    Love Claudie

  13. This is a wonderful blog! Thank you :)


My Grandmother always told me, "If you hang around with skunks, you're gonna get some stink on you."
