SAFF - Day 2

First of all - a shop annoucement - Some of you have written to me and let me know that there are some problems with the discount page on our website. Thank you SO MUCH for letting me know. I updated the page yesterday with lots more goodies but I can clearly see that there are issues with the page. I feel certain that this is because I tried to update it myself since my poor hubby is still sick. So, as soon as he is up and among the living a little later this morning I will see if he can help me get it straightened out. In the meantime - if there is something on there that you are interested in please email me and I can invoice you directly - that way your stuff won't get sold once the page gets back up and running properly.

Now............back to your regularly scheduled SAFF post:

Saturday was a lot of fun!! I was actually surprised that Saturday was not as busy as I was expecting it to be. It seemed like Friday was much busier which I find a little unusual for one of these shows. The other vendors agreed. But, we still had a great day and had a little time to have fun too so that is always nice!

Saturday night Wayne and I were going to get together with Hockeymom and Hockeydad for dinner. That is 4 people, right? Well, we ended up with about 30 people there by the time it was all said and done! Ironically, we didn't go to the Asiana dinner because we wanted to opt for a smaller scale dinner instead!!! Silly us. We had a BLAST at dinner.

Isn't that picture of Gryphon awesome?? I think she should use that picture on all of her yarn labels from now on.

The highlight of the night was definitely telling the staff that it was Gryphon's birthday (which it was not) and watching that whole thing go down. Here's how my conversation with Katey went:

Katey: We are going to tell the wait staff that it is Gryphon's birthday

Me: OK - great!

Katey: Think we should do it?

Me: ??? Well.......yeah?

Katey: Gives me weird look

Me: I mean, if you are sure it is her birthday and all.

Katey: Smiling - No - we are sure that it ISN'T her birthday!!

Me: lightbulb goes off - OHHHHHHHHH - Then YES, in that case, you should definitely do it!

It was awesome! That girl is hilarious and such a great sport!

I even got to wear my new February Lady Sweater! This is JP and I.

Here is a shot of me and Mr. Man - right before he started feeling like death warmed over.

Seriously, I have no idea how I went the entire weekend without a single picture of Cristi!!!

How much do I love that Gryphon is still in full costume at dinner?

Soooo much.

Damn. I wish I had gone to dinner with you guys. Looks like you had a blast!

You should see the one pic I have of the 3 of us. The background is in perfect focus! Us? Not so much.

I think the discount page works now! Yay!

Hockey Mom said...

Awesome pictures. That dinner was a blast and I think I want to marry Gryphon!

What you can't tell from the pictures is that Gryphon totally danced with the wait staff in her birthday hat. It was AWESOME.

Jane said...

Hope Mr is feeling lots better by now. Poor guy. And yes, dinner was fabulous!

Gryphon said...

Costume? What costume?

Kate said...

Dude, that was so much fun! I have learned that anytime Brittany decides to throw a party, and even if she doesn't, I should just go!

Because it is a full time job to take pictures of Gryphon looking fabulous and doing crazy stuff, I have one of her dancing with the waiter that night. When things settle a touch, i'll post it:)
