In September when I headed out to Arkansas Women Bloggers Unplugged I was secretly less excited about a blogging conference and was more excited about spending a weekend away with a few of my favorite girlfriends. I was pleasantly surprised to find the conference very helpful and entertaining and in a completely unexpected surprise I made some new friends too. So when we returned home to Central Arkansas Alison and I threw together a little photo shoot for the bloggers in boots, new friends and old friends from central AR. It was about 300 degrees outside so we turned the truck around and enjoyed a refreshing summertime cocktail. It was a night filled with laughter, boots, and bacon (Petit Jean, of course) and it all ended with seven very sweaty women jumping in a friend's pool.
