Bloggin' Bout Bloggers

{Me with Jenna from The Paleo Project, duh}

Typically, my Sunday nights involve yoga pants, glasses, and zero make-up, dreading another work week and watching "Once Upon a Time." P.S. Am I the only person watching this?? OMG, anyone who's watching it will you please let me know so we can talk about it so much??? 

So when Jenna told me about the Blogger Blitz event in DC (held Sunday night), I was hesitant to not only meet new people, but to also be taken away from my usual Sunday routine that could easily be mistaken for that of an anti-depressant-addicted, mild-aged divorcee with three too many cats.

Color me pleasantly surprised when we ended up not only having a great time meeting other DC-area bloggers, but looking amazing whilst doing it!

{Jenna made this sweet ass gif, which I promptly stole}
And that concludes the "detail shots of my top" portion of our evening.

But interestingly, the evening wasn't only about the clothes. It was about meeting other bloggers. And not just the one who flew in from Boston to stay with me (more on that later this week). It was here I met Whitney of Cheerios and Beer, a hilarious read and my new blog-turned-real-life-friend. We're getting dinner tomorrow, NBD.
{Jenna and Whitney--but then, you already knew that from the nametags, didn't you?}

And I also met Megan, who bears an uncanny resemblance to Zooey Deschanel. We may or may not have sung an inappropriate amount of "Who's that girrrrrrrrl's?"

And then there was Ashlyn who is cute as a button and just as sweet as can be.

And then there was Alison, who put the whole incredible event together.

There was a whole room of other bloggers I didn't get to spend as much/any time with, but I don't think I'm out of line when I say the whole thing was something of a success and we'll all likely reconvene another time.
And now for the obligatory CupcakesOMG! and Paleo Project shots:
 

What does YOUR Sunday routine consist of?? Do you watch "Once Upon a Time"? Do you even know what it is???

First of all, I LOVE your outfit. I'm a big fan of leggings..and black. Come to think of it I sound like a middle aged divorcee, too...although without a generous alimony. *humph*

Secondly, I WATCH ONCE UPON A TIME. and we must discuss. Every week I watch with anticipation, part of me hoping that any minute the curse will be lifted and we'll get all the details....BUT the logical part of me knows it's a series and thus they will keep us in suspense forever. So....let's talk! ;) (haven't seen this past sunday's episode yet, so no spoilers por favor!)

If I could get that gif turned into a life size poster, I would. And I'd hang it in my bedroom.

Love your photos!!! Sunday was such a fun event- so glad to meet so many lovely ladies!

Emilee said...

OMG! I have watched every episode of Once Upon a Time!! AND I LOVE IT!! Can we please talk about how great of a show it is?!!? I feel like its the hidden gem that no one else knows about right now, but once it gets nominated for a bunch of Emmy's or something, for its creative awesomeness, everyone will be like "WTF! WHY DIDN'T I KNOW ABOUT THIS SHOW" and then I will have to tell them all "I told you so!!"

PS. Love the post. Wish we worked in the same office still, so we could talk about these things face-to-face!

Ashlyn said...
