honfest: day 2.

a few of my favorite people.

me + charlene: best hon 3rd place winner and totally fabulous woman!

honfest day two was just as spectacular as the first day! we had another very busy day at the tent, with mamasita rocking the photo booth all day long! let me just say i have the BEST, coolest, most fun mom ever! i couldn’t ask for a better friend or partner for this weekend. i feel incredibly lucky! also, our fantastic friend (and one of my beautiful 2008 brides) michelle even jumped in and took over the booth for a while!

the highlight of the day was the conclusion of the BEST HON contest, a big congrats to agnes hurley the 2008 BEST HON! i loved everything about the HONFEST, but most importantly it was the people who made it such a wonderful experience. everyone was absolutely awesome – so here’s to new friends and hons everywhere!


the coveted title…

…and bawlmer’s best hon 2008: agnes “punkin” hurley!

two of the women who make it all happen: cafe hon owner and honfest founder denise whiting, and my incredible friend kate.

bawlmer’s best hons EVER: heidi + mom rita!

two of my brides!! sara + michelle! love them!!

1st, 2nd, and 3rd place little miss hons 2008!

i’m *so* excited for honfest this weekend! if you still don’t know about this oh-so-fabulous and oh-so-baltimore festival check out the website or read about the kitschy charm of baltimore in this recent article from the new yorker magazine!

BLONDE PHOTO is delighted to have a tent (i may have already mentioned this but i really am *so* excited, can you tell?) where all sorts of fun will be taking place, including a hon-themed photo booth! i will also be moving throughout the crowds documenting the day, but you will be able to spot me in one of my sweet BLONDE PHOTO t-shirts! look for the pink logo which is on everything…including the 200 balloons we will be passing out from our tent – WOOHOO!

honfest is taking place in hampden on saturday from 11-8 and sunday from 12-6 – so come on out, hon! you’re sure to love it! there will be live music, great food vendors, and tons of activities, as well as a beer garden :) – so it’s fun for all ages!

hope to see you there!
