Where I’ve been…

Portland and Seattle and San Francisco. And right now I’m in Los Angeles. And in a few days, Utah and then Chicago. Phew! I’ve never traveled like this before. But, I’ve been having tons of fun meeting everyone who’s been so sweet to come out to the Williams-Sonoma stores to say hi. It’s really overwhelming in a pinch me kind of way. I hope you guys are having a good time, too.

I’m trying to get lot of pics along the way, but I’ve got to tell you – narrowing them down for a post is super tough. So I picked out some random ones and then made a slideshow for each city that you can view if you want to see even more. Feel free to grab any pics of yourself from the slideshow on flickr if you like, too. Enjoy!

IMG_7151

This is Tigard – near Portland. There was a line when I arrived. A line. Crazy.

IMG_7166

But fun to see!

IMG_7176

Hi everyone! Thanks for being so nice and welcoming.

IMG_7221

I hope you enjoy the book.

IMG_7249

The first book I signed came with a sweet gift. Literally. Chocolates wrapped as little books. SO cute.

IMG_7274

Hi Heather. You were a sweetie.

IMG_7284

Hi Scott. You were too.

IMG_7288

And look at these girls. Cute as a cake pop.

IMG_7302

Pamela – it was a pleasure to meet you and your daughters. Thanks for the necklace and the drawing. And I love that peach flower barrette.

IMG_7542

After Portland came Seattle.

IMG_7590

Cupcake Julie was with me and took some fun photos. This is a cute one.

IMG_7598

But better with faces.

IMG_7606

Hi Pop Star Dawn – your golden apple cake pops look delicious!

IMG_7614

I really love seeing so many smiling faces.

IMG_7624

Hi Jessie and Carrie. Glad you stopped by. Miss you guys.

IMG_7657

Look at this little cupcake. Complete with cupcake cookies from her mom. Thanks Jenny!

IMG_7671

Okay, these girls are too adorable. I want those black rim glasses. But somehow I don’t think I would look as cool.

IMG_7676

Java Cupcake – Nice to finally meet you. Tell the gals at Cupcakes Take the Cake I said hi!

IMG_7677

Hi Josh’s mom.

IMG_7702

Do you guys know NotMartha.org? You should. She’s super creative.

After Seattle we headed to San Fran.

The Williams-Sonoma in Walnut Creek gave me such a cute greeting.

IMG_8113

Fantastic!

IMG_8127

I can’t get over the line thing. Thank you all so much for coming. And wanting to buy books and get them signed.

IMG_8129

Nice shirt. ; )

IMG_8167

Side smile dork wave. ; )

IMG_8200

Lots of smiles.

IMG_8204

A photo without my hand in the air. But only because they were on my hips.

IMG_8220

Me & Cupcake Julie.

IMG_8228

And cuties. Them I mean.

IMG_8241

I love this. A couple came to get books signed to ship to their friends in Dubai. Amazing.

IMG_8295

And look … someone brought me a baby doll.

Every bit of every minute has been so memorable and exciting. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

I was SO sad you came to Seattle in the middle of the workday! I couldn’t leave work to come meet you and have you sign a book. Darn!
And if I hear you were still there after 5pm, I will be sad I didn’t rush there after work.

Stef @ TooMuchToDoSoLittleTime.com/ said...

I so wanted to see you when you were in Oregon. Was bummed I couldn’t make it. Would love to know if I can mail my book to you to sign. ;)

Joanne Kennedy said...

I was so lucky to get to South Coast Plaza today and get your book. But, I was even more lucky to get to meet you.

I’ve already posted about it on my blog :)

Thanks for taking the time to come visit all of us and answering questions.

I love your cake pops and can’t wait to give them a try myself.

Hugs,
Joanne

Totally wanted to see you in Walnut Creek, but it conflicted with picking the kids up from school. Looks like you had a great time!

Nerissa said...

I wasn’t fortunate enough to make it to South Coast Plaza today, and was planning for at least 3 weeks…but realized we couldn’t bring our pre-purchased books (non WS) and really didn’t have the moolah to buy a 2nd one…so I too, like Stef, was wondering if we mailed the book to you, could you please sign it…..pretty please??!!!!!!
p.s. your website rocks!!!

Jaimey said...

I am so sad I could cry that I missed you in Portland! It was just a bad day for me all around. (um, next time could you clear it with my schedule please!? :) I am glad you had a good time though. Next year I plan to do cupcake camp too…

Marianne Firth said...

So this is a bit off topic, but where did you get your dress that you wore in Seattle? Your whole outfit from top to bottom is perfection. Do share if you get a minute. Nevermind, you clearly wont have a minute for a while. Anyhow- love it, love it.

Kristina said...

Thank you SO much for the slideshow pics. I was SO heartbroken to discover the pic of you with me and my daughter (Sigrid, in the Norway flag t-shirt, Seattle) taken on my own camera was totally a flop (because of my camera, not because of the kind lady that took the picture). I’m so excited to have a pic from your flikr – hope you don’t mind I swiped it – to add into the book I had you sign for Grandma “Dee” (who I said wants you to come to North Carolina). Thanks for coming! It was too much fun meeting you! Kristina S.

Yes, yes, come to Oklahoma. You and PW can have a co-book signing. They would probably have to hold it at the Fairgrounds to have enough room! :)
BTW, the outfit with the black belt looks spectacular on you and I think the side smile/dork wave is charming. I’m a giggler when I am nervous. Guess we all do something :)

We had so much fun meeting you in Tigard. And since I live right down the street from the mall I loved the fact you were coming to my street! We had a great time talking to the folks around us as we waited in line, and I loved the guy who was waiting in line so he could get his wife a book since she had to work that day and he had the day off. That rocked. I’m sure she was so happy to get her book.

How come more cookbooks don’t have this? GENIUS. SO much easier to work with and keep open. And lastly, THANK YOU for sharing all your creativity with us! I love Bakerella!!
