I heart golf

Last week I was lucky enough to spend a few days at the PGA Show. It is a merchandise show where they unveil the latest clubs, golf fashion, accessories and pretty much everything you can  think of. People from all over the country (and world) come to the show and this year there were over 1,ooo booths. The numbers are down a little bit from last year. The people who come to check out the latest and greatest in golf are mostly pros, buyers for golf shops, golf course managers and staff, and media. My assignment was to put together a gift guide, so you know I had a blast shopping around. My boss wanted me to only use companies that were from a certain state, so although I was rather limited, I still found some things that would work and had time to browse through all the fun, cutesy stuff that I love. I sneakily took some pictures so here are some fun and preppy booths I found to share with all of you!   

Lilly Jeep

More Lilly! Check out the cute golf bag.

Lots of madras.

Cute golf accessories.

A fabulous stationery company, bloom.

Paula Creamer, aka "The Pink Panther"
Paula is my favorite LPGA player. She is known for her love of pink!! She plays with a pink ball and the grips on her clubs are pink. (Sorry for the terrible picture, there was a huge crowd and I couldn't get a good shot.)

Last night my boyfriend and I, his brother and some friends all got together to celebrate the Super Bowl. What an exciting fourth quarter! I cheered for both teams since I didn't have a favorite. The boys put together a football pool grid where you write your initials on a square and it's $1 per square. (I'm not sure what it's called.) Then numbers are assigned at random across the top line (Steelers) and side line (Arizona) of the squares. At the end of each quarter whatever the score was you would use those numbers on the grid to see which square would win the money for that quarter. Well, I have one lucky boyfriend who won all of them and even let me persuade him to give me back the money I entered. What a sweet boyfriend to share his winnings!
      Ty and I were in charge of the food so we made mini hamburger sliders, a queso dip and guacamole. For dessert I made mini chocolate cupcakes with cream cheese icing and crumbled oreos on top. Very yummy and the boys gobbled them up. It is back to the grind today, but I'm looking forward to going to an Orlando Magic basketball game tonight!

I need a new golf bag! I guess I should play more that a few times a year though. That bag gives me incentive to play more.

I never knew golf could be so pink and girly. How fun!!! Granted, I don't think I could play golf to save my life, but it might be more fun in pink and green :)

Molly said...

The clothes are why I want to learn to golf!

Pink Maple said...

Great photos - thanks for sharing them!

QueenBeeSwain said...

Amen, glad I'm not the only one tee-d off (hahaha) at him. Rowerboys at Michigan and swimmers really protected him and made sure those events/happenings had minimal attention.

That's so cool about your golf trip! Did you get to see Bekah at all?

So I know you are really far from Colleen, but I'll be down in Ft. Lauderdale the weekend of Feb. 21st...we should try and meet some place like half way between you girls!

So fun! I love Lilly Pulitzer too. They are doing a book signing for me with the jubilee stuff in March, but in PA.
