Monday was the opening evening for...


 
...where girltrunks exhibited.

Here is the evolution of the booth... 



My friend, Johanna setting up the day before.



We had to be show ready by 2:00 so they could do a bomb sweep of the exhibit hall before they opened the doors.  We arrived all dressed up and worked on the finishing touches.
 


...the booth is done



While the bomb sweep was taking place we made our way to the lobby and just watched everyone.  I LOVE people watching by the way.  We're sitting there and who walks right by us but Maria Shriver...kind of cool.  

The convention center was packed.  It was a fantastic crowd full of happy, happy people.  I walked around a bit to partake in all the activity and energy...and...to see if I might site any celebrities which I did not. They did pipe the various celebrity talks throughout the exhibit hall which was great.  Here is a photo of Martha Beck interviewing Paula Deen...imagine the sound of Paula's laugh throughout the exhibit hall! 

One thing that just blew me away was all of the people that were buying books to have signed by the various authors...it was unbelievable.  Check out the agenda for the Night at The Village including the various book-signing shifts..rather impressive. 
 
girltrunks was so very well received.  I cannot tell you how many women of all different ages and shapes walked up to the booth and said FINALLY!  That was just so, so exciting!  We handed out lots and lots of postcards. We had a pop-up dressing room and you would be surprised at all the women that actually tried them on which I thought was just great.  I tell you every time someone went in to the dressing room, Johanna and I looked at each other and smiled.  There was some thing funny about it in a most good way.
 
The evening ended and we left exhilarated and exhausted - found a fantastic place to eat on 2nd Avenue in Long Beach called Open Sesame Mediterranean Grill

Back to the hotel we went.  The next day was going to be a busy one as we had to check out because we were leaving for Santa Monica after the Women's Conference for another event, yes I said another event. Plus we had to be at the convention center bright and early.
