My Rose 2019 experience

I had literally the most lucky and amazing time and don’t think anything can top it! My Airbnb host family was amazing and so kind. I met amazing artists and sculptors who were all so nice! I ended up going to the baby shower because last minute tickets became available AND an amazing lady paid for my ticket. I made some incredible friends, one in particular gave me the greatest gift EVER!
Most of all I am leaving with TWO more beautiful babies!
My beautiful Johannah that I bought from Jenni Lesser who might end up as a boy after all haha!


And my most beautiful Laila by Sweet Beginnings Reborn Nursery who forementioned amazing friend won in the show floor giveaway and gifted me! (I still can’t believe I have her and she’s in my arms right now at the airport)

Congratulations on another beautiful baby! I knew you would change your first baby’s name when you got him, lol! What a lucky and amazing time you had, Who is the person that gifted you your baby and does she paint too, if so what is her nursery name? Can’t wait to see your videos of the ROSE Show.

She is so cute and you have an amazing friend. It was nice to see you both there. I’m happy to that it was such a good experience for you. You are an inspiration to all the people here that want to know how much it cost to go to the Rose show. I listen to y’all talking about the room you stayed in. The lady made you breakfast. The trolly car. Going to the used clothing shop. How someone bought you a ticket. In all I realized you can go very cheaply you just have to put your mind to it. Ask these young people now while they still remember how they saved money. Like sharing a room. Trolly car. The baby shower awards banquet came with a meal. My hotel had a huge breakfast. Some people went next door to Target and got food to eat. It doesn’t have to cost so much especially if you get together with others.
