Hello!! Back from CHA!!

Published by at 9:22 pm under Summer CHA 07


HI!! Hope you had a wonderful weekend!!! We had such a riot! There were the most beautiful display’s, GORGEOUS new products, tons of people to meet, so many fun new companies I hadn’t even heard of!  This convention center was HUGE!! People say the summer trade show is smaller than the winter…WOW! That is hard to believe! 🙂 I can’t believe I am already home though! I hate goodbye’s! 🙁 It’s sure nice to be home with my boys though! 🙂

Friday night my friend Michele and her family took me downtown for some Chicago Deep Dish pizza! YUUUMMMYYY!! Chicago (well at least the parts I saw) is absolutely gorgeous!  We do NOT have a big city at all, so I was just in awe of all the tall buildings! I loved it there! After dinner we went to a little walkway area along Lake Michigan (I kept calling it the Ocean! lol) It was getting pretty dark, but I got that fun picture! (the one at the top) I hope you enjoy!! I will be back later this afternoon to draw a winner for my giveaway! WAHOO!!! 😀 I’ll be posting more CHA pictures as I can get them all on my computer and get caught back up! 😉 Thank you so much for stopping by!! 🙂


These are some of the ADORABLE samples at Doodlebug! Did you notice the sequin pumpkin on the bottom shelf! SO CUTE!! There was SO MUCH new Halloween out and I am just a SUCKER for it! I love it! I cannot WAIT to get my hands on all my new goodies! lol!

  1. Glad you had a great time, Linz — that’s a great skyline photo!

  2. Glad you had fun and are safely back home. Wow! These look like fun things. Is your credit card worn out now!!! :0) You ought to enter that photo in SU’s contest – it’s a beauty.

  3. Oh it sounds fabulous and I think I missed some major fun! Tell me you got to to up to the top of the Hancock Building! This picture is one of my favorites — love the Chicago Skyline and makes me miss it all the more. Looking forward to reading more!

  4. Pretty picture Lindsey! I’ve never been to a big city either and that picture just looks awesome.

    I’m a sucker for Halloween too, so I’m hoping that you get some of those cute little Doodlebug items in your store. 🙂

    Fabulous pic of the Chicago skyline! I live here and have never even thought of taking a picture like that! Thanxs for the inspiration!

    It’s such a beautifully clear shot that I would be really interested (that is, if you don’t mind) in what camera you use. Is it a digital slr? I have a Sony Cybershoot but would like to upgrade to an slr.

    One more thing, are only the new items shipped free and shipping is placed on the older items or are all items shipped free as long as I have some new items in my order?

    Thanx in advance
