El Paso Gathering at Jody's House

A group of us chatters that hang out on Splitcoaststampers web site, decided to get together and meet in El Paso at Jody's house. It was a lot of fun. I think it was something that we all needed and that we proved that you are never too old for slumber parties. I got to meet Jody (texasjodylynn), Karen (gamblemom), Beth (TMDmom), Kristin (wasatch wizard), Nicki (up4stampin2), Nette (nettefrawl), Kim (mamaof3insd), Tracy(kid305) and Cyndi (cpw3431).
Our weekend included: arriving and getting spoiled by Jody, car troubles (what trip is complete without some), lunching at Olive Garden, a trip to Juarez, Mexico - complete with an authentic mexican margarita (haha), goofing around, playing bunko - (and winning awesome prizes that Jody had gathered and put together-WOW),
doing a bunch of shoebox swaps (gotta have stamping in there), goofing around, making bracelets (YAY Nette), eating lots of yummy food(Tracy has the best recipes ever), swimming in Jody's pool, shopping at Hobby Lobby and some local stamp stores (even though the stamp store lady was a sour grape) and getting to know each other better. I just can't wait till we do it all again next year! Thanks so much for offering your house as a place to gather Jody! You are awesome!
