I had such a great time at Texas Style Council and I learned so much! I cannot even begin to blog all of it. At least not yet. I need time to digest it all!
I met many wonderful women. They were so nice and so genuine. It was surprising to me! I felt very welcome and accepted there. There were women of all shapes, sizes, ages, etc there. It was a wonderfully diverse crowd!
I learned to tweet over the weekend – thanks to Rachael of http://rachaelreally.tumblr.com/ and Joanne of fabulouslyaverage.tumblr.com/. Follow me on twitter @BetsyFurler. Rachael also taught me how to wear bracelets!
I met Pam of http://over50feeling40.blogspot.com/. She is a perfect role model blogger for me! I enjoyed talking with her as well as hearing speak as the moderator of a panel. I carpooled with Emily of www.emilyhallman.com. Her clothes are to die for – go check them out! I also carpooled with Chelsea of http://www.bellavogue.com. She navigated for me all over Austin! I was fascinated by the small town life of Erica of theseminolesweetheart.blogspot.com. I bonded with Genny of gennyalexander.typepad.com over our insecurity with thrifting and our similar clothing choices.
I met so many more! I will continue my list of new friends on my next post!

The photography workshop on Saturday morning – that is Jen of JenLovesKev in the plaid skirt and Kevin is conducting the workshop.
I learned that I need to actually use the DSLR that I have with the tripod, external flash and various lens that I already own. I ordered a remote for my camera and IT IS HERE!!! I will try it out as soon as I have a few minutes to figure it out!
More to follow!!!
