Gosh, I guess it’s just Provo appreciation week here on The Alison Show eh? I just wanted to share some things I’ve been LOVING that were a result of a really fun Provo blogger get together a week or so ago!

The beautiful Jillee of One Good Thing by Jillee (you know I respect a woman who puts her name in the title of her blog) hosted a really fun party at my favorite local BBQ pit Bam Bams.

It had ALL the makings of a good party: fantastic people, amazing food, some killer swag bags and best of all, Smilebooth. You may know that Smilebooth is my crack. I cannot resist the perfect lighting and automatic gratification of a printed picture. It’s hands down the best photo booth for hire service ever. Expensive, but worth it.

Anyway, I thought I’d share some pictures of me looking a fool and doing solo shots in the Smilebooth as well as some of the best swag ever! Jillee gifted us with some goodies made from tutorials on her blog. Genius. And I have been enjoying them SO MUCH you must check them out.

In this cute drink tote there was the yummiest Honey Butter Ambrosia paired with homemade bread, and this Homemade Laundry Soap.

Apparently you can make the soap for $30 for a year’s supply. And I might actually make it because it smells SO GOOD. I love really clean smelling soap. Soap that smells like soap. And last night I was like making out with my freshly laundered pillow because I loved the scent so much.

If you’re wondering how I look SO COOL in the Photobooth, be sure to read my 5 Tips for Looking Like a Rockstar in a Photobooth

You can check out Jillee’s awesome party pix and tips for throwing a rocking party too if you’re feeling so inclined.

Also can I just say like, thank you, from the bottom of my heart for your comments? First of all, some of them are so nice I hardly deserve them, and second of all I love the feeling of community they create, and I know it can be a pain to comment on blogs, so I really appreciate it.

Have a good one.
