Saturday started off dark, dreary and very very rainy. The sale started at 8AM and at 9 I was in tears because there were only a handful of people here. In fact the milkman told me later that he was so worried for me. But, the rain didn't last long thankfully and we had tons and tons of people. I was so excited!!! We had some really neat vendors. I loved the craftmanship that was shown. So crafty!!
I could NOT have had such a successful day without the help of an AMAZING team and I don't mean that lightly. I want to just take a minute to thank them not by name because I know I would forget someone but by all the jobs they helped me get accomplished. I am so very very grateful!!If you helped me shop, make fliers, paint barn signs, let me borrow anything i.e. rubbermaids/tupperware containers to store cupcakes, if you kept anything in your freezer for me (which were several all over the county), if you watched Kyler at anytime, if you helped cook, bake, frost or chop anything with either the milkman or I, if you parked a car, carried a million things up and down stairs, helped me clean, set up or clean before during after or in between, if you help me decorate the barn, if you wash dishes, took out trash, gave ideas or kind words of encouragement, if you said a prayer any prayers for me I am so so SO grateful from the bottom of my heart. I didn't realize how many friends and loved ones I had and were so awesome at cheering me on. Thank you!!
I am also so thankful to my kiddos and the milkman who has put up with me over the last 2 months with all my craziness. I have the best family!! There is a couple of people I do have to name by name because of their countless hours of help before and especially the day of. Kaylei B. thanks for doing all of the PR and everything in between, My sister Alicia who helped with everything your the best and last but not least The Womack family Jeremy, Cindy, Hunter and Kenzie. Words can't express Jeremy and Cindy for the amount of gratitude I have in my heart for the two of you. Not only did they come crack of dawn they stayed until the early morning hours of the next day. And Jeremy even slept on the couch just so that he after 2 1/2 hours of sleep could get up and help the milkman do chores in the morning. Thank you so so so much ya'll mean the world to me.
Alicia and Jeremy giving me the thumbs up that no worries we will have people show up :)
I am also grateful to the vendors and everyone that came out. Katie and Erin who came all the way from Colorado just to support me and Megs and Kimberlee for bringing out their craft weekend crew.
I think it was a HUGE success in fact I had 6 vendors call or tell me that they would like to be in the spring sale!!! YAY!! If you couldn't make it out for this year thats ok you will get a chance!! Tomorrow blog will be about the wedding reception that was the same night of the sale. I know insane but it turned out so beautiful more on that tomorrow so stayed tuned…...
