news from L.A.

Hello friends!  I made it!  I was so nervous about the flight but as I thought, I’m so glad I did it!  Heidi, Stuart, and Michelle are all just as nice in person (not that I’d think otherwise!)  and we already have a fun start to a great CHA. 

My trip started out a bit rocky yesterday as I soon discovered after I went through the airport security that I left my cell phone in my husband’s truck!  Aaaacccckkk!  I was freaking out and about to have a heart attack.  LOL.  10 days in CA without my phone…and HOW was I going to find them when I landed in L.A.????  Thank goodness I have a wonderful husband who didn’t just drop me off & leave!  He was on the other side of security and we had a quick “conversation” with lots of hand gestering to communicate to him that I left my phone outside in the truck.  He must have been running to get it for me so quickly!   

Here’s a photo for DH so he knows I actually DID look out the window!  LOL.

Today was just gorgeous and we spent a good part of it outside.  A T-shirt and jeans was a VERY welcome change from my sheepskin boots and winter coat!  It was -15 degrees in PA the day before I left!

We rented a truck this morning and went to the storage unit where all the furniture, etc. was stored from last year’s show in Anaheim.  We had to unload everything, build the crates, and load it all into the truck.  A lot of work, but fun too!  Stuart and Michelle were great drivers in the crazy LA traffic! 

After the truck was loaded, we took the crates to the convention center.  Here they are hauling them in to the site of our booth.  This is all the farther we got to go.  Tomorrow we’ll go inside and start setting up.

And we are soon heading to bed after a long day.  I didn’t sleep a wink last night…too wired from the trip, I guess.  LOL.  But I kept going strong all day.  Hoping for a good night’s sleep tonight! 

Thanks for popping in, I’ll try to share some more photos soon!
