Bloggy Friends

The day I got married I said (to myself), "From this day forward I vow to never take out the trash, fill my car up with gas, or drive long distances by myself, ever again."

Well today I broke one of those vows.

And it was all in the name of hanging out with some fun blogging gals.

Anything for my blogging friends right?

I woke up early this morning, got in my car and headed out to the great state of Texas.

I have to admit I was nervous. Not only because I would be driving 3.5 hours by myself but also because I would have to drive through Dallas traffic.

I have been in Dallas traffic once before. I was in the passenger seat, and I kept my eyes closed the entire time to avoid seeing my life flash before my very eyes.

Well it is kind of hard to drive with your eyes closed. So this time I was forced to watch my life flash before my very eyes several times.

And I also saw the life of a bike rider flash before my eyes when he decided to ride his bike behind my car that was going in reverse.

It was nice.

Anyways, like I said it was all for a good cause. I was going to hang out with some blogging friends! Erin, Megan and Mrs. Preppy.

I somehow managed to get myself through Dallas traffic and first met up with Erin. I was so excited to finally meet her. We had tried to meet up once before but it didn't work out.

When I first got out of my car to meet her (after wiping way my traffic-induced tears) I felt like I had already met her.

We then met up with the girls for lunch and had a fabulous time.

Here we are at lunch. Mrs. Preppy brought her precious little girl, who entertained us the whole time!
After lunch Erin and I were able to hang out for a bit more and I go to play with her adorable baby Hudson.

If I keep reading and hanging out with bloggers who have cute babies I am bond to get baby fever.

I really wanted to stay and watch Biggest Loser with her but I knew I had a long drive in front of me and I needed to hit the road. I had such a great time and I am so glad that we finally got to meet!


At lunch we talked about how neat it is to have friends that live all across the United States. I am grateful for these friendships. And even though there are times (many times) when I wish I lived closer to my blogging friends, I know that it make it that much more special when we get to meet!
