Cincinnati Blate

Me // Shelley // Allison // Kayla
You really can't go wrong with bloggers, Mexican food and cupcakes for dessert. That combination just can't fail you. With about three weeks of a ridiculously long email thread (71 emails… to be exact) we finally nailed down a date for a big group of Cincinnati bloggers to meet- up! I was really excited about this because although I'd met four of the girls previously, this was the first "big" meet-up we'd had a chance to coordinate.
Me // Allison // Jax
Dinner ended up being a 2.5 hour event, I kid you not. Time flew as we all chatted about everything from blogs (duh!), careers, high school, how who-knew-who, what Katie was going to name her baby (We couldn't pry it out of her!) and everything in between.
Katie, I can only hope I look half as good as you when I'm pregnant! Girl is gorgeous!
Allison was amazing and was able to score some delicious free cupcakes for us from Gigi's cupcakes. Oh. my. gosh. Gigi's is actually in twenty-two different states, but the amazing Kenwood location was the donor of these mouth-watering treats.

Blogging is just such a weird thing. I was just telling someone this week how it's crazy to think all these amazing gals live in the same city, yet we might have never met had it not been for blogging! I'm so glad I started a blog two years ago and that the friendships through blogging keep on showing up. Cheers to blates!

  1. so much fun!!! I love how blogging can bring ppl together in the same city you never would've met and even ones from different states and it just feels like you have known them forever

  2. THIS JUST MAKES ME SO HAPPY!!!

    Too much? I mean seriously, seeing the pictures on Instagram last night, I felt like "waaaah I wish I could've been there!" even though I live approximately 7 hours away and am totally not a Cincy gal... So, moral of the story, I'm a little odd AND need to make a road trip up to Ohio. The end.

  14. Sooo fun! I wonder, is it a requirement to be a Cincy blogger that you have to be stunning and stylish?? It seems so!
