Blogger’s Night Out: Gardner Village

Blogger friends are unlike any other friends I have. There is just nothing like getting together with a group of people who really get you and understand why you do the crazy things you do, like take pictures of absolutely everything and will talk tech jargon mingled with craft and home decor. I am sure that we are quite a sight to see. Gardner Village was brave enough to invite us to come check out their shops and spoil us rotten with treats and gifts. If you haven’t been to Gardner Village before, you really should go see it! Now is the time to go too because the witches are out! They are darling. 
Every shop is so unique. They all look like they are little cottages tucked away, but when you go inside of them, you are amazed by the incredible items they have. My favorites?
Aunt Elsie’s– This has tons of vintage treasures. It has a special place in my heart too because Harper’s middle name is Elsie. 
Country Furniture and Gifts– I could have left with every, single item in the store. Cutest things ever.
Down to Earth– Clothes and home decor in the same store? Yes, please!
Georgell Doll Shop– A little girl’s paradise! You can have tea parties there! 
Pine Needles– Incredible quilt shop! I don’t have the talent of quilting, but I can sure appreciate it!
Plum Dandy– Darling clothing and accessories! My fashionista could die there happy.
Sassy Babies– The name says it all. The cutest dang baby stuff you have ever seen. You pretty much have to rip me out of this place. Harper needs every single thing.
Spoiled Rotten– Fabulous children’s boutique. If you want your kiddo to look totally unique, this is your spot.
Sweet Aftons– Candy! Candy! Candy! Do I really need to say anything more?
Taste– I had a tasty frozen hot chocolate! You have got to try one. 
The Posh Peddler– Ah! I could have stayed here for hours! The most adorable clothes and accessories ever.
The Village Quilt Shop– My house needs every thing in this store.  
Upon the Shelf– Incredible home decor! Everything is just so stinking cute!
Ok. So most of the shops are my favorite… I love Gardner Village. 
 Getting to hang out with some of my favorite bloggers was a total bonus. Lori from My Craft Channel and I are what we like to call “Blogger Wives”. Maybe don’t ask… My Idaho girls, Holly and Adrienne had way too much fun wearing mustaches. It is by far the greatest picture of Holly of all time. I loved getting to know Amy more too. She is such a doll and is genuinely one of the sweetest people I have ever met. Leanne is a wonder woman. I want to be her when I grow up. How the heck I didn’t get a picture with Aleisha or Staci on my camera is beyond me, but we hit up Apollo Burger after the event and had an evening of laughs. Aleisha is officially one of my favorite people in the entire world. After a late night of eating, Adrienne and I got to Staci’s house with a blue Zeus on their front lawn. We had to change that…. 
It is always so fun to see my favorite bloggers especially when we get to do it at such an incredible place like Gardner Village. Thank you to My Craft Channel for putting the whole thing together and thank you to Gardner Village for spoiling us and letting us take over your space!
