Hey, y’all! Welcome to Sweet Sorghum Living–a place to sit a spell with a good cup of coffee and chat about everything from home renovation to gluten-free living. Today on the blog, we are taking a look at the fabulous 4U Ultimate Girls Day Out, and all the things that caught my attention while there. Y’all know how hard it is to keep me focused *wink* But this shopping extravaganza combined with fabulous demonstrations held my attention for several hours before I remembered I had another happening to attend!

Now, it is time to grab that cup of coffee and sit a spell *smile*

I attended the Girls Day Out event with my daughter, Abby Hathorn. We were super excited to hand out our new business cards--which we will both be chatting about soon on our blogs and Facebook pages *smile*

Penny Woods Skincare Center

2Dye4 (Check out the Etsy shop, here. I am loving the leggings and the socks!)
