Where In The World Is...(?)

Friday, February 1, 2019

Happy Friday *and* February, My Lovelies!  

Today the Traveling Totes are playing a game:  Where In The World Are We???

Well, dear sweet readers, I didn't get very far....nope!  We've stayed close to home during Christmas and January, but we have a couple of trips planned for the near future.

*HOWEVER* I did go somewhere VERY fun, and VERY exciting.  Let's see if you can *guess* where I am....

Below are some pictorial clues to help you guess...

This is Miss Daisy.  She is not the real hostess....she just holds plants in the spring.
She's trying to steal my mug!

I am at someone's home.  You might know her...

You might even read her blog.  She has a beautiful home because she has exquisite taste...

Another friend is here, too.  Her Courtly Check mug is shown, and our hostess's wine glass is almost full....probably due to the stress of the impending (no-show) snowstorm!  

Our hostess with the mostess loves to arrange flowers.

She also loves to entertain and cook!

She enjoys baking pizzas in her new pizza oven.  Her outdoor kitchen is da bomb!

She's also an artist.

I know I just gave it away with that clue.  I'm at Jenna's house!!!  And I LOVE it!!!

BTW the only two decent photos shown in this post were taken by Emily.  I'm having an issue with my phone, but if you want to see some great photos of our luncheon at Jenna's, look at their blogs (and the other Traveling Totes' posts) by clicking on the links below!

  1. Ricki Jill, I love the fact that you three tribe mates were able to get together at Jenna's and enjoy some sunshine, MKC fun, and good food! My only regret is that I wasn't there, but traveling vicariously is the next best thing. Your visit together is my idea of sweet traveling, and proof that it doesn't always have to be somewhere exotic (although those are pretty sweet, too, not gonna lie!).

  2. I am so envious that the three of you get to "play" together! All of your photos with the trio of drink ware were so cute and clever. Looks like a fun luncheon get-together!!

  3. Thank you for all the kind words Ricki Jill, and I love all the spots you choose for your photos! It was definitely my pleasure to have you and Emily in my home, I love to entertain and have friends over, it gives me an excuse to fill the house with food and flowers! What a special day we had, one I will always remember! Let's do it again soon~

  4. How fun that you girls got together. Cute post. Have a good weekend, Ricki Jill.

  5. What great fun Rj to be able to meet up with Emily and Jenna. Such an awesome lunch with friends. Jenna is quite the hostess. So sorry I could not participate on this post. Have a wonderful weekend.

  6. What a wonderful idea. I just swooned when I saw that you all got together from Jenna’s wonderful Home and pizza oven to the food and the collection of fun MC for the lunch. You girls are the best.

  7. What a delightful get together. Really my jaw dropped at all of the beautiful pieces on the buffet and all of the good food. You girls are just the most fun!

  8. RJ, what fun you girls have when you get together. I smile every time I think about the three of you together having a grand time. I can hear the laughter! I hope all of the TT girls can get together sometime. Those of us who met in NYC last year had a fabulous visit. Let's make it happen!

  9. What fun for you, Emily and Jenna to get together at Jenna's fabulous home and enjoy her many talents!

  10. Yes RJ we did enjoy snooping around Jenna's beautiful home. She was so sweet to let us look and take photos. What a wonderful lunch we enjoyed, it was almost to pretty to eat! So happy we could both be there to catch up and laugh and enjoy being together. Let's do it again soon :) Have a wonder weekend.......

  11. You lucky gals!! Glad you live close enough that you can get together and share a little Bama love! I am having so much fun with my Traveling Mug, and looking forward to the TTT March post too.

    P.S. You are inspiring me with your book organization skills. xo
