Simply Sunday Morning, #BlogPaws Style

It's been another amazing BlogPaws Conference, and the beautiful Sheraton Grand Wild Horse Pass Resort made our stay even more memorable! It's been like a mini-vacation for Coco and I, and we are staying on a couple of days just to soak up the ambiance (and some pool time maybe...)

We flew in last Wednesday morning, and got settled in our very comfortable room. We had 2 (heavy) suitcases, one for me and one for Coco's wardrobe & accessories, and two beds (I like to do that so I have a place to put the BlogPaws swag, LOL! 

BlogPaws outdid themselves this year, with a Cat Swag bag filled with unique toys and accessories and a nice variety of food and treats, too! Along with some nice things for 'personal assistants', too.

We then went out to explore the resort, soaking up the Southwestern vibe, and taking a few photos. Calming American Indian music played softly in the background and the decor and setting was inspiring...

Wednesday evening began with a Evening Pre-Event Welcome Reception sponsored by PetSmart and it was fun seeing old friends and meeting new ones.

But we retired early as I hadn't sleep the night before the early morning flight (always fearful I will oversleep).

Of course, I let Coco get as much beauty sleep as she could, as I knew the next few days would be filled with activity and a flurry of costume least 4 a day! But as I tell people, as long as Coco is in the comfort and security of the Pink Catillac (her rolling cat bed, lol), she is pretty chill and happy!

Well, that is Day One of BlogPaws 2016! Watch for more news and photos this week, as I took over 100 photos and am busy editing and saving the best, as well as surfing the web looking for pix that others took of Coco! 

And if you'd like to read what other attendees have blogged about their experience at this fantastic conference, just follow the blog hop and live vicariously through them!

Or curled up with a friend...

On Friday, we are jetting off to Florida to attend the Fabulous Furbaby Cotillion! Coco will be presented to society and the event will be filmed and she is graciously donating two pawtographed copies of the adorable book featuring her, Coco le Chat, the World's Most Fashionable Feline, to the raffle to benefit Florida Yorkie Rescue!

It's a weekend of wining and dining and fun, all for a good cause and we couldn't be more excited to be wearing a custom-made, one-of-a-kind gown designed by the fabulous Belle Diva Couture! Coco has a number of dresses from Belle Diva, but this gown was designed after Janice Craig met Coco in person, spent the weekend with us in New York and I'll have to say, she captured a vision of Coco that is stunning, unique and perfect for her!

Of course, the gown is a secret until Saturday night, but we will start the fun on Friday night, getting to see old friends and meet new ones at a fabulous restaurant, which is having a private party, just for attendees! We will have the entire restaurant to ourselves!

Coco will be wearing something fabulous...I'm still going through her closet trying to pick something stunning, and I think it might be her newest dress from Belle Diva, the cutest cocktail dress that looks smashing on her!

Then Sunday, there is a brunch at a country club, with the them of Paris...another perfect setting for Coco...we will both be in pink with custom designed berets!

I promise to take lots of photos and I'm sure to have lots of stories to tell when we get back home, so stay tuned for all the details!
