Where Have I Been???

Where have I been you ask?

Getting ready for the NEC Conference in 8 days!!!

I'm working on book one of my series still, and I'm working on our workshop as well. We're going to be discussing contests, critiques and more. So Barb lives right around the corner from me, while Jen and Danielle live an hour away. Barb and I decided last minute to get together on a schoolnight and maybe work on our workshop. So Jen called and when I told her I was going to hang with Barbie, she (who is never, ever free) said hey, I think I'm free. I want to come. So she last minute, spur of the moment, decides to pack up and come hang with us too. She called Cakes (who is also never, ever free) wasn't home. I think it was bowling night or something. Yeah, yeah, so these two have lives. What-ever. Insert eyeroll. Seriously, they are sooooo much fun to hang out with, it's just hard with all our schedules to ever make it work. That's why we are really looking forward to this conference.

A whole weekend of girltime!!!!!

So anyway we all ordered Fly Girl apparel for the conference. So we decided to wear it for inspiration while we worked. And, yeah, you guessed it. We had more fun goofing off taking silly pictures and less time actually working. Here's how our night went:
Getting comfy and brainstorming
Starting to get Silly

Striking a pose in honor of Danielle since she wasn't there and we missed her:
Danielle's Angels

Deciding we don't look half bad for forty (or in my case, ahem, almost forty) and realizing we all have our attributes.

The eyes

The hair

The girls. (We decided Barbie Jo has the best attributes. Can you say girl envy;))

Anywho, that's where I've been. Having waaayyyyyy too much fun lately;))


Barbie Jo said...

Okay, okay, okay.... I sooo had a blonde moment (sorry Danielle!) when you sent those cropped pics last night. I totally didn't get: the eyes, the hair, the girls. OMG!! NOW I feel like such an airhead after reading your blog. Can you say "Duh! Barbie Jo!"

Oh yeah, the four of us have sooo much fun together. And Danielle, we missed you horribly!!! although, I do think we scared my poor daughter who we made take the gazillions of pictures with 3 different cameras!! (my poor baby. she'll never want to grow up now!!)

I can only imagine the pictures we're going to have when we get home from the conference.

Oh, and whose hubby do we call if we get arrested for unruly behavior? I vote for Dildo. he's our mascot after all!

Kari Lee Townsend said...

Oh, yeah, your poor daughter. The look on her face said it all. But she's just such a good photographer. Snort. And how could you miss "the girls"!!!

I for one, cannot wait to see Danielle. Talk about fun. She's a freaking riot. And her hubby is the dildo (her nickname for him), and officially the Fly Girl mascot.

8 days, girlies, 8 days!! hee hee!

Dim said...

Hey Kari,

Thanks for checking in with Dim City...I just posted something new.

Kari Lee Townsend said...

Hey, dim, glad to see you around again. The conference is a writing conference and it's in Natick MA. It's a great conference for any type of writer.

Dim said...

Holy crap...small world. That is actually the very town that we just moved out of! Lived there for like 4 years! Too funny!! Please let us know how the conference is; I'm pretty interested.

Jennifer Talty said...

What a night! It was so nice just to get away from the daily crap I have to do. Life can be so stressful sometimes and a night out with some of the best girls in the world, well priceless. I so wish my Danny girl could have been there. I could have used her antics on the ride home to keep me awake.

Kari Lee Townsend said...

The conference is at the Crowne Plaza Dim. STay tuned after we come back April 1st. WE'll be blogging all that week about how it went. It should be fun;)

March to the Sea said...

yeah Dim and I are new englanders..hope you enjoy the area!

Manic Mom said...

Can I be the leg girl?

Frannie Farmer said...

Looks like so much fun. This is me :o( Jealous on the other side of the world ...

Dim said...

Wow, that's right near where I work! Have a nice beer at the John Harvard's Brew House, which is in the mall area across the street.

Their butterscotch bread pudding dessert is the ruin of me. So good.

Have fun in Natick!

Beth said...

ya, she has some amazing "girls"!!

You guys look like you have so much fun when you get together! And I love the Fly Girls stuff!!!

Jennifer Talty said...

Fun doesn't do justice what happens when we all get together. The one thing I know for sure is that since I met the Fly Girls, I will never ever go another day and not feel as though someone else out there loves me for who I am, not what I'm supposed to be.

Kari, Thanks for showing off my best assest and not he assest I don't have - boobs.

Swishy said...

LOL! It looks like a riot!

And Manic does have HOT legs!

Dorky Dad said...

Yeah, coordinating t-shirts generally tend to reduce the amount of work that goes on in an evening. Scientific studies have proved it.

Kari Lee Townsend said...

You can be anything you want, manic. We could use a leg girl;) And we'd love to have Frannie, Swishy, and Beth. You ladies rock.

So that's why we're slackers, Dorky. It's the T-shirts fault;)) Hey, that works for me.

Dan said...

Hi Kari! Thanks for popping over to my blog. :) Wow! Look at you three! More awesome photos of you girls. You three rock! You should seriously think of making a video. You'd all be a smash on YouTube!

Jennifer Talty said...

OMG - A Fly Girl Video! Too funny. I think I've scared my children for life.

Danielle Bronson said...

Holy Shit I am bringing the movie Camera! NOW THAT IS ONE HELL OF AM IDEA!

Kari Lee Townsend said...

Oh no, Dan, I think you've given Jen and Danielle Ideas. Don't you know they scare Barbie Jo and me?? Cakes with a video camera....that could be dangerous. I'm bringing my digital camera for sure. Sure wish Dim and March would show up!!! Come to the crowne plaza and just page the fly girls. WE'll show up and have a drink with you in the bar! The conference is a riot!!!

Lexi said...

Hey, you took care of the important stuff--the outfit!

kim said...

Kari -- You look fantastic!

(and hey, you shaved this time -- ha!)

hotwire said...

Kari Lee Townsend said...

Aw, thanks Kim. And yes, no hairy pits for me and no nasty pics....I hope.

Hotwire, so glad to see you around again. Hope all is going well for you.

Alyssa Goodnight said...

Sounds like you guys had fun! I can't remember the last time I had a girl weekend...I'm jealous.

Kari Lee Townsend said...

Oh we had a blast, Alyssa, and we are soooo ready to go. Counting down the days.....3 days until lift off.

Okay, so drive off.

I only wish I could pack you all up and take you with us.
