Saturday the 28th was the Grand Opening for my store "The Rhinestone Cowgirls"!! My SIL and I were very excited and my wonderful Mom came to town Friday and stayed to help all day Saturday, she was such a blessing to have there with me!! We opened our doors promptly at 9am and our first 2 visitors were none other than Paula from Broken Y Ranch, and Leslie from Cow Pies & Mud Pies!! I was SO excited to see them!!! Paula and I have met before, we actually knew each other through church friends before I ever found her blog or she found mine and it took us a bit to figure out that we knew one another LOL!!! And I got to see her at a local rodeo over the summer!! Leslie I had not met before, but I tell ya I felt like I had known her for years!!! These gals are such a BLAST to be around, I had so much fun with them in the shop!! We are going to take a little road trip to OKC sometime and I am just thrilled about it!! I have to say one of the funniest things that happened while they were there but I didn't even know it until that evening. My Hubby and son J were running some last minute errands for me so they came in and I hollered at J to come in so I could introduce him to the girls, cause I am just so darn proud of him!!! My DD was not there as she was over hanging out with her cousin. So later that night the Hubby says to me "so were the 2 ladies that were there first this morning your blog friends"? I said "OH yes that was Paula and Leslie" he says "yeah I figured that out as I stood in the other room and you introduced everyone but me"!!! I said "OHHH *really* I did that"?!?! He says "yep, you called for J and asked if DD was with us but never asked me to come in"? I CANNOT believe I did that LOL!!! And the worst part is he came in and helped to take our pictures for us and I still didn't think of it!!! BAD WIFEY!!! SO Leslie and Paula I will make it a point to formally introduce you girls the next time we see you LOL!!!
Leslie & Paula, Such AWESOME ladies!!!!
Leslie, Me, & Paula!
Leslie, Me, Paula, & Jen
So the rest of the day was quite fun, we had a friend travel out to see us, and my SIL's mom came out, my Auntie, my Granny, & my Cousin came out!! And we had some great friends in town that came by. And we met some new people that we hadn't seen before!! So it was a great day, and I am very excited for the future of the store!!!
