My 1st Bloggity Meeting!!!!



So yes, I know I have neglected my blog for the past couple of weeks. I think we have discussed my longing need to squeeze all things fun into the last couple of weeks of summer..thus NO posting (wipe away your tears)!

But I have been up to sooo much fun it is not even funny!!! Well, some of it HAS been funny but I'll save that for another post..another time!!! ;)

What did I do this weekend? I had my 1st Bloggity Meeting with Julie from
Wife Mom Nurse!!!

We met at the infamous Mall of America and had a yummy coffee drink!

Fire hubby and the kiddos were enjoying Nickelodeon Universe so I did not meet them, but Julie had the lovely fortune of meeting QB, Receiver and Tight End (he he)!
In her words
"Wow, they are 3 dimensional!!! "

I had the best time chatting with her about where they live,
her very interesting job and how she loves it (jealous of that I tell you).

We even had a random stranger snap this photo of us for Proof!

In Julies words again "It's like having a pen pal"! I totally agree. This is a really great way to meet people and I guess I can kinda understand how Internet dating became so popular and how so many people starting meeting in real life.*
*Note to Julie, that was not an attempt to DATE you just purely a connection to the internet and in real life!*

It was really funny because while we were sitting and chatting...we BOTH got phone calls....
Can you GUESS from who?
Yep...MiMi and Elaine
Our IRL girls were calling us to say "Hi" !!!

Let me end by saying...I just LOVED LOVED LOVED meeting Julie and I hope that all of you have had a great time meeting up with Bloggity Buddies over the summer!


29 CHEERS from the Crowd!:

oh how fun!!! I have yet to meet any blogging buddies. Y'all need to move west, girl!

I believe you about the dryer. I once meant to put some towels in the dryer to just dry a teeny bit more but I forgot and left them longer.

Man, they were HOT!!! when I took the out.

Carrie said...

Very cool! I have not met any bloggy friends...but sounds so FUN! What a great way to start friendships! Great picture!

Beth E. said...

I'm glad you got to meet Julie, but I'm jealous! I've met one blog buddy...I want to meet all of my blog buddies, though!

Julie's a sweetheart. I'd love to meet her. I'd love to meet YOU. I'd love to meet Mimi and Elaine. I'd love to....well, you get the idea! ;-)

Sounds like a great day. Isn't meeting IRL fun! I've been lucky enough to meet several ATL bloggers that have turned into some really great friends.

Kameron said...

OMGosh, you totally hit the nail on the head!! It is like internet dating only for friends!! Ha! I will have to use that in an explanation to my hubby some time! Glad you guys got to meet up. That is exciting!

Tim said...

I just love her! So fun that you guys got to meet! I have a few blogger meetings coming up too.

And in case you didnt already know, Carey and I were brought together online as well. Just no dating service or anything like that.

The story of that is on Carey and I's blog, you can get to it by clicking our pic in the right sidebar.

Love and Prayers,

Tim

Bridget said...

Sounds like it was so much fun!!! If any of my bloggy friends come to Arkansas, I wanna meet them!!

Rachel said...

Totally, totally jealous! I love that you got to meet Julie IRL! I mean, planned and all. Instead of (ahem) stalking their little toddler that you recognize from their IHeartFaces entry :)

Lucky you!

Kim said...

Awesome! I was lucky enough to meet a bloggy friend in real life and she lives in my town! It did feel a little bit like internet dating.

I am glad you had a great time!

Wow, he doesn't mind the bitter apple? My friend told me that her dog hates me and that it was very effective!

My dog has stopped chewing wood (to my knowledge) but she still has a thing for socks!

Oh girl, that was so much fun!

I am cracking up at this post!!!

I didn't realize that I was your first bloggy meeting. That's cool.

Selfish me for not introducing you to my fam. What was I thinking?(0r not thinking!)

I am taking your words to heart and am going to do more mommy blog posts! I am proud of my kids (when they are not annoying! Ha Ha!)

Thanks for driving out. our visit is a cherished memory!

Mocha Momma said...

Oh, that is so neat that you two met each other in person.

Some day I'd like to meet some of you bloggers out there.

Nan & I should just make arrangements to meet some out here. Maybe next spring or summer.

Glad to visit again. Seems like I've been gone a while.
