Pacific Northwest Blogger Meetup

i hope everyone had an awesome weekend! i know i did and i got a late start on today because the dude took the kids out of the room and let me sleep in until 11:30! the unheard of part is that i was actually able to do it! sometimes when i try to sleep in i just cant and ending getting up anyway.  i'm no early riser; i get up around 9am and i'm lucky my kids usually sleep until then also.  no morning people in this house! 

anyway back to the awesome weekend. we had the pacific northwest blogger meet up on friday at lucky lab. it was so much fun to meet some very talented ladies.  it's always nice to put a real live person with all the unique details you know about their life.  it still weirds me out though and makes me feel stalker-ish but i guess we are all putting our lives out there for people to peek into.  it's quite voyeuristic in a unique way because it also allows us to connect with people we may not have otherwise.  morel of the story: it was a good time and nice to physically meet other awesome bloggers.  i didn't realize there was so many in portland alone, super looking forward to the next one in november! its official!

i wanted to share some pictures from the event.  the first two are courtesy of miss fiona - thank you!!

it was so much fun and i really hope that those that couldn't make it this time around can make it in november.  it is going to be a bigger venue and a larger group of awesome bloggers.
