Thank You All For Not Being Axe Murderers!

I'm sure you all are dying to know how the bloggy get together went? I know, you totally forgot didn't you? Tis Ok I understand, your not supposed to keep track of my social life, cause you know I don't have one.

Laurie and I met up at Chick Fila, where she was so kind to chauffeur me to the event. She of course was just as nice in person as she is in cyber space.
We got there early because we're both neurotic about these things and walked around the Galleria for a bit. I tried talking her into ice skating but she would have none of that. ;) One of the highlights of the evening was getting our picture with the hello kitty playboys.
It's not everyday one can say they had their picture taken with "hellokitty" half dressed. It should be part of one's life goals.
Thanks again Laurie for the pics.

We decided then to head to the bar to grab "our dinner" early -in other words our drink alone was a mere $12.00. Ouch! It at least helped loosen me up to actually make an effort and talk to total strangers with out thinking twice about it or being least not too shy. Anyone who knows me personally would have been my opinion.
I was probably driving Laurie crazy repeating to everyone I met, "Thank you for not being an axe murderer!" Let's just say the hubs was kind of paranoid.

Everyone was very friendly and funny. We didn't get to meet everyone, as our tables we're so spread out. Hopefully next time we can play musical chairs and have our own area. I think we're already making future plans.
Here's our table of great funny bloggers.

Becoming Bianca
Starting from the back right
Anything But Nice
Me, no I'm not that narcissistic to link back to my ownself.
The dude next to me was not a blogger but dragged by his own free will by Ed at PostedNote. Bless his heart.
Jenny took this group pic and was kind to let me borrow it. Yes I did bring my camera, I just hated to have to lug it out. I should have anyway. Oh well. I guess I'm shy about taking strangers pictures. Though they are strangers no more!

Our group rocked because a good majority of us were Twilight freaks and were trying to convince the rest of the group to go right this very minute and buy the books. We even have future plans of a possible watch party when the DVD comes out. Should be awesome fun! The funny thing was there wasn't a single "mom blogger" in the bunch at our table except for me. It was still fun to meet a great variety of people with the same passion. Can't wait for the next one!

Sounds like a good time! I've gone to a few blogger meet-ups around here over the years and I always think the same thing afterwards. GLAD THEY DIDN'T KILL ME. Lol.

Hi! I'm Grace said...

I love meeting new people. I enjoyed reading your post, Jean. :)

Hi Jean!

The dinner was fun and I am glad you were at my table. I love Mom bloggers and hearing stories about kids believe it or not! So I'll definitely stay in touch.

Take Care!
