Saturday Happiness: Blog Friend Style

Last Saturday was the bees knees.  That's right... the knees of the bees!  I got to wrap my arms around Julie, Melanie, Trish, Summer & Daphne and spend a little face to face time laughing and chatting.  Each and every one of them is just what you see on their blogs & even more.  It just felt like hanging out with old friends & that made me oh so happy. I snagged these from Julie because my camera conveniently croaked as soon as I pulled it out to take a picture.

It's a strange feeling to sit and talk with women you have never spent face to face time with(I have met julie girl once before, but it was a quick lunch!) and feel like they already know you.  Maybe they don't know your mannerisms like the friends who have been around forever, but they know your heart & your personality. The things we share on blogs, are sometimes from the innermost dwellings of our hearts.  We escape here to write out what our hearts and brains are feeling & usually(for me, anyway) besides discussing it with my boyfriend or sister... this is the only place it's spoken of. I am lucky to have found you all, who genuinely care & fill my inbox with love.
 I eyed this top in a boutique last time I was in the city & then saw it on Mod Cloth & stalked it a bit... so I decided to cave and buy it for myself!  I scooped it up after I left the girls on Saturday & after taking it in a bit(they didn't have my size), it fits perfect & i love it!  Don't you love the sweet umbrella print?  I like quirky little prints :)

Sunny side up print
KLAW has a new print in her shop!  Isn't it cute?  All proceeds go to Summer & Adam to help towards their journey in adopting a little nugget of their own.  Pretty great cause, right?  Please go check out Kristen's shop & scoop up a "Sunny side up" print!  [convo her if you don't see any listed!]

7 love notes:

  6. It looks like you guys must have had so much fun. I've yet to go to any type of blogger meet-up, but if think it'd be such a great thing to actually meet the people you're always reading about

  7. That's pretty cool to meet some of your blog friends in person. I really like that idea.
