Friday morning I headed 3 1/2 hours north to Minneapolis, MN to meet up with two of my favorite bloggers ever. These are two bloggers that never get missed in my reader. I wait for their posts, and do my best to read them and comment each and every day.
You know what kind of bloggers I am talking about, right?
I had met Lisa earlier this spring for a book signing in Minneapolis, but we didn't get to spend a significant amount of time together, so I was looking forward to spending an entire weekend with her.
Amber in person... and I was equal parts nervous and excited! I first started reading Amber in 2008, back when she was still Amber Alert! I'm pretty sure we found each other through Jessica, back when she was still Classy in Philly. Now she is a wonderful book blogger, Cover to Cover!
first comment, but it's definitely one of the first...
I think this blog post was a 25 things about me post inspired by the Facebook meme that went around for awhile. Remember that?
Also, how fitting that my first blog friend (Lesli) was there and that it was about the color pink!
Thank goodness that phase of my life is over and I no longer have everything in pink and a Hello Kitty themed bathroom.
Did you know I had a Hello Kitty bathroom?
Yep and no, I was not 10 years old. I was 25 years old. I am real mature. Ha! I still have the Hello Kitty toaster that a friend gave me for Christmas years ago and I use it everyday (it works, why should I buy a new one? Plus, it doesn't sit on my counter top... lol).
As I used my toaster today I thought to myself, am I going to make Lisa use my HK toaster when she comes to visit??!
Why yes, yes I am.
Hehe, sorry Lisa! You're gonna have a big ol' HK head on your breakfast.
Anyway, I digress.
It was interesting to hear how we all found each other, how we found our favorite blogs and just talking in person about it all in general. I can quickly feel this addiction to meeting bloggers getting stronger and I cannot wait to meet more. I also added TONS of bloggers to my reader. There are so many bloggers that Amber and Lisa talk about and I am positive that if they love them so much, I will too.
I cannot gush enough about these ladies and how wonderful the weekend was! I hope we can get together again soon with more bloggers in Chicago this winter - I am really, really looking forward to it!
Make sure to check out all of Amber's recaps here, here and here. She did an absolutely phenomenal job!
I have definitely added this weekend to one of the best weekends I have ever had, and I already miss both ladies so so so much.
