At least I had a BLAST! I couldn't be happer...

Sunday, June 6, 2010

I recognized everybody...We hugged...we talked...we ate really pretty well...and I think there was at least one cocktail. 
and our waiter was kind of cute...Cathy, Lesli, and I just giggled
when he asked us what we were up to last night; hopefully that made us "mysterious".

In attendance were the following lovely women:

Cathy @ Antsy Pants
Lesli @ Pretty Random Thoughts
WhiskeyMarie Von PartyPants @WhiskeyMarie
& MNMom @Happy To Be From Iowa, who brought Twin Two to take pictures! 
I cannot wait to see those and this is one lovely young woman - good job Mom!
OH - and me.

We talked about a lot of things - mostly how amazing social media is for bringing us all together to realize how much we have in common.  That most people are not extreeme - and we have very similar tastes in blog reading (and unfollowing) AND views on giving credit where credit is due in our own posts. 

I cannot wait to dig into their blog rolls for some of the bloggers they talked about - and I know there are a couple of bloggers I recommended.  (psst.  They were The Daily Dose of Reality & That's Why - but MNMom and Whiskey know about Lisa!  Oh and I would also recommend Rants From Mommyland...)

But these are just a few of the bloggers I shared with the group...

And the stories! 
Twitter Kidney and Radio Boobies

I cannot wait to read what the other ladies had to say - of course I feel like I talked to much and was a huge dork...but that is me with people I have known for twenty years; let alone those I have been reading for a few years to a few weeks. 

It was nice to know I was not alone in a lot of things - like feeling overwhelmed by my Google Reader - and let me tell you what I noticed:

MNMom is one of the happiest people in her own skin I have met.  Can I be you when I grow up?
Cathy has great insights - and very mischevious eyes (in a sparkle good way)!  She took notes!  I really wanna know what she thinks- we also share A LOT of the same taste in blog reading!  Loved meeting you!
Lesli is so very sweet, thoughtful, and I can't wait to see her pictures too!  And could you BE any cuter?
Whiskey?  Well what can I say?  Everytime I thought about trying to find her when I was working downtown St. Paul I now wish I had...she is what you imagine, but more in a Meg Ryan than Courtney Love kind of way.  (That IS a compliment - it means you are fun and cozy to be around-my dad would approve & FYI, yours is the only blog he reads besides mine...)

If we don't do this again we will only have ourselves to blame...and I would be disappointed. 
and if you are in MN and did not join us,
you missed out. 
just sayin'
join us next time!

Lisa, what a great review & you were so NOT a dork. I loved that everyone had stories to tell except me! I felt I was being too quiet. I think I am one to sit back & listen to everyone else!! Would love to do this again!!

I had a BLAST!! And can't wait to do it again. I'm waiting for Twin #2 to upload those photos so I can blog about last night too. You didn't talk too much, that was MY job.

And that waiter was pretty cute, wasn't he???

I'm glad you had such a fun girl's night out!

I have never attended anything like this. I don't even know any other bloggers in my area. But that's ok, I kind of like being anonymous! To my knowledge, no one in my real life is even aware that I have a blog.

I think the waiter got annoyed when I asked him where my shrimp cocktail was because everyone else had their appetizers but I didn't! And he said he was waiting to serve it as my entree. And I said, okay, I was just worried that you forgot. He had a look on his face that said he was a professional & he would never forget!
He was a really good waiter.
We have to do it again!! :-)

Wooo hooo! I had sooo much fun meeting everyone! I told JT all about it the next day.

You were NOT a dork!

I'm hoping to type my recap up tonight,but you definitely captured all the major points.

I don't think anyone's ever told me I have mischeivious eyes! Love it!

We MUST do it again. It was too much fun!

Mommy Lisa said...

My Mom and My Brother asked me about it and if I had fun....

I talked about y'all all day Sunday to my family and friends.

:)

Lesli said...

I finally wrote about our dinner & put up some pictures!

YOU didn't talk too much- I did. I'm such a conversation hog. Oink.

You ladies are eleventy hundred sorts of great- I had a really fun time and it was awesome talking to you all.

And? How much do I love that your Dad reads my blog? Tons. He's obviously a man that's OK with swearing and poo talk- he's my kind o'guy.

I have a feeling that, when we do this again (and yes we will), so many MN bloggers will see how much fun we had (and we did- no lie) that we'll need a much bigger table.

You ALL were great- thanks to you guys for organizing this and letting me tag along.

Oh yeah- see? See how much I talked there?
