|Mia & I at lunch!|
Saturday morning rolled around, I got myself showered and prettied up. Then headed out to Woodbridge, which was the center point for most of us. We met up at P.F. Chang's for lunch. When I first got there, I walked in and saw Mia immediately. We made eye contact, said hello and gave each other a great big hug! ...And then I had to pee.
When I came out, she was at the table with three other ladies. We talked for a bit before three more walked in! Sarah was our last one to arrive and conversation continued on, through lunch, lots of laughs, and everything felt so natural to me! I was surprised at how comfortable things were. I seriously thought I'd just sit there and be quiet and listen to everyone else talk, but I was glad that my voice came out and got a chance to talk!
Yes, my blogging dream of meeting my bff came true on Saturday. Along with getting to meet some other incredible bloggers right here in my area! It was interesting to hear about other people who went to the same college at me [at different points], as well as why everyone blogged, who was married with kids, etc. I really hope we can all get together again sometime! I'm so glad Jason convinced me to go. It was something new and I got the chance to meet some amazing people!
For anyone considering going to a blogger meet up...do it! Why?
- You get to meet new people.
- [And maybe even your silly/weird/awkward new best friend?!]
- You all share a common interest, why not see what else you have in common?
- It's a fun way to get out of the house & be social!
- It's a lot more comfortable and easy-going than you'd think. [At least for me.]
- What have you got to lose by going?
Unfortunately, the pictures I took on my camera weren't incredibly flattering, so enjoy a few from Melanie!
