I had to wait until the next day to call the bookstore (they were closed) and was able to buy my book over the phone to guarantee the earliest ticket I could get at that point. Turns out I was in Group "G" which was the 7th group to go and there were 50 people (plus one if they wanted) in each group. I thought I was destined to go to this even alone and maybe meet up with Susie for a little bit. I told my MIL about it...she couldn't go because of work. Luckily I had scored a half day sub job for the morning so I was off early to be able to go. As I was on the phone with my MIL letting her know my plans (on Tuesday around 1pm) she asked her co-worker if she knew about the PW. Mary said yes and made plans to meet up with me so we could go together.
I had heard a lot about Mary. She is my age, super friendly, and totes cute!! We had met once, at her Stella and Dot trunk show debut last week. We met up at 3:30 in a parking lot to car-pool together. What a dream!!! We didn't have to sit in traffic on the way there. I had someone to sit with and converse with. We got to know each other better. It was great. We got to the bookstore around 4:30, Ree wasn't scheduled to speak until 6:00pm so we sat and waited. Chatted it up with a few of the people sitting near us. They came all the way from Port Townsend, over the ferry. And I thought I drove a long ways!!
Finally 6:00pm came around and Ree gave a 45 minute speech/presentation. She is a wonderful speaker and a total gas!! She is SO witty!! I ♥ Her!!
After her presentation we waited...and waited....and waited....and waited some more for our Group to be called. While we were waiting Mary and I chatted. Found a table. Got dinner and ate. And then talked it up with the two ladies that were sitting next to us. We exchanged life stories, our ambitions, hopes and dreams, business ideas, and contact info. Heidi has her own company Bizzle Bites...search for it on FB. She makes the CUTEST cake pops. She even brought some for the PW!!
