New and Old Friends
Even though some of us had seen and/or met at the St. Malachi race earlier in the day, we had plans for a “tweetup” at the Winking Lizard in Avon. Luckily Avon is only about a 20 minute drive from us (and the Winking Lizard is 9 yr old friendly!), so the 3 of us were excited to go!
Just from reading Kimi’s blog, I knew she was going to be awesome. And she was even awesomer (yep, that’s right, I’m 12!) in person.
Love her and her badazz pose.
And, seriously, how cute are her glasses. She wears them like a rock star.
J……..ummmmm…..not so much:
Think he was going for the “I’m not interested model-like” pose here?? Not so sure…..
We all pretty much just gossiped, ate, and drank for almost 3 hours. I never run out of things to talk about to Alana. I’ve loved her since the minute she harassed J for being a Steeler fan (sorry Babe)!
(a little blurry, but whatever)
Sidenote: Luckily C had bought the most recent Pokemon DS game with his birthday money so he was entertained the entire time we were there. I was really impressed with how good he was!! I’m telling you, boys are so easy. He makes my job as mom so much easier.
Anyways, I didn’t get to talk much to the other end of the table, but here we all are before we headed home:
I’m really glad we went. Sometimes I’m a little hesitant to attend the blogger meetups, as I’m not sure who is going to be there, if I will connect with anyone, etc, etc, etc. This was the best yet!!!! Jess and J used to go to spinning together so they knew each other already and her boyfriend (aka manchild) was really down to earth and just a nice guy.
J and Kimi’s husband, Mike, even found out that they are fellow programming geeks. Maybe Kimi and I should get shirts like this to wear to the next meetup??
Are you ever nervous to attend blogger meetups? How did it go?
