Pictures from the Newbery/Caldecott Banquet

Here are some of the pictures that I took at the Newbery/Caldecott Banquet on Sunday evening. You can see more pictures at my Scenes from ALA post at Wild Rose Reader.

It was so much fun meeting my blogging buddies in person.
I felt like I was seeing old friends!

The banquet was truly a "fun" time!
Grace looked lovely. It was the perfect dress for her special night.

I couldn't imagine the dress being worn, but when I saw it on you Sunday night, it was beautiful ! Good Choice.

Elaine, it was so terrific to meet you in person. Gotta say, you were very different than I expected. Isn't it funny how we put a voice and mannerism style with a person we know only online, and then when we meet in real life, it may or may not match!

You looked gorgeous in that black dress--so sharp and glam!

I never would have been able to wear a black dress like that if I hadn't lost some weight. I had tried for years to drop pounds--nothing really worked. Then, earlier this year, I cut pasta and bread out of my diet and the pounds began to melt away. It was that easy! I wish I had done it a long time ago.

P.S. I do cheat once in a while. I pigged out on a pepperoni pizza when I returned home from DC on Monday evening.

P.P.S. Kelly & Laura, it was so great to meet both of you (and Tanita and Sara and Pam and Liz) at the banquet!
