Sweets and Treats

I had a really fun day last week meeting some other Texas bloggers. Laura of Decor To Adore put together a lunch for us to meet. We each brought a valentine or little treat.
Here are the goodies I brought home. I felt like a little kid in school bring home my treasures from these creative ladies.
Here's the Valentines I was working on last week to give to each gal.

We had lunch at a wonderful place in McKinney, Texas. Such a cute historic square with lots of shops, restaurants. and a historic courthouse.
Here are the great gals I got to hang with. Most of us had never met before, but we all left as friends with plans in the works for another get together in the spring.
Here's the links to each persons blogs. You should definitely check them out. The list starts at the left and goes around the table.

Lots of creative ideas, recipes, and eye candy! Thank you for such a fun day.
We took out youngest son to a pie place in Dallas, called Emporium Pies. They make all their pies from scratch. Here are a few in the case. The shop is in an old historic house-so cute.
It was so crowded that day, we had our pie 'to go' which was just fine, because it was in the 70's that day. We took our pie outside and ate at a picnic table. Look how cute they package their to go slices. It was delicious!
Lastly, Hubs and I shared some chocolate covered strawberries on Valentines Day.
All in all it was a very sweet week. I hope you had one too!


  1. What a wonderful time for all! I miss the AZ bloggers get together-es...

  3. Yes we certainly had a fun time at our old fashioned Valentine's party! The cards that you made are so pretty and m&m's are a weakness of mine! The pie place looked like a great place to visit, Leslie. Chocolate covered strawberries are always a treat!

  4. What fun! I'm envious of your get-together! Looks like a wonderful day and so many new and talented friends.

  5. Hi Leslie! Oh, I'm a bit jealous! If I had still lived in Texas I would have done my best to meet with you gals! What a lovely bunch of ladies. I saw Celeste's post. Look at all of your pretties too! It's so nice to meet fellow bloggers. I've only got to meet two in all my years. Thank you so much for popping in to see me.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

    1. I had never met any fellow bloggers until this year either, Shelia. So don't lose hope. Just try to get better.

  6. It looks like you gals had a fun time getting together, Leslie! And those still my heart. Yum!
