Ok, for those of you that don't know this, this was a big deal for me. I'm SAHM to 3 little ones ages 7, 5 &3 and they keep me busy. This girls weekend was the first time I've ever spent away from my kids and my son will be 8 in May. I love my kids more than anything they're every minute of my everyday, and that's just it, a girl needs a break sometimes lol. So when my amazing friend Jenny invited me to be a guest and go with her to Stampin' Up's Regional in Milwaukee I said count me in!
We stayed at the Hilton in downtown Milwaukee which was a nice older hotel that had alot of character.
Beautiful marble lobby.
I just loved this sign on the elevator.
I had a great time with Jenny she is one amazing lady, very talented and loves to share her talent with others. We've been friends for about 7 years now. I'm thankful for her everyday, seriously I think I might lose my mind in this small town without her. It's always nice when you have a girlfriend to share and vent haha your everyday life with. We both have similar tastes and love to share are crafty creations with each other.
In the middle of the room is where the swaps were taking place which I named "Swap Alley". I didn't participate in any swaps but it was fun to watch all the excitement.
To no surprise to myself Jenny was picked to be a presenter and she did an amazing job. This is Shelli Gardner stoppin' by her both.
The Lakeshore Stampin' Team!!
(not all team members were able to attend)
I'm bummed this pic is blurry but I had to share. I am and apparently some of the SU staff in also a fan of Jimmy Fallon. This segment on stage was SU's version of Jimmy's Thank You Notes hahaha so stinkin' hilarious!!!!!! Thank you Big Shot for redefining how to make a sandwich......it was so funny I wish I could have got it on video.

My first time at Mar's Cheese Castle.
I took this shot when we stopped to have a quick dinner at an oasis. I thought it was pretty cool how it turned out.
