Ohio Bloggers are the best!

It amazes me how many local bloggers there seem to be in my area. Our little Cincinnati area is exploding with bloggers as is, I've met more than a dozen of them! So this weekend I had a chance to come together with any and all Ohio bloggers and I'm so glad I made the drive to Columbus to do so. I won't lie… Saturday I was laying on the bed, dressed to go, but still had yet to do my hair and makeup and a little part of me was thinking of backing out. I think it was totally out of laziness and it being too hot to flat-iron my hair, but I'm glad I got over that and went. Even if my half curled/half straightened hair suffered from my last-minute choices. I met some of the sweetest girls ever, girls that I've been reading along with for months, even years! Plus I got to meet some brand new faces!


Kayla and I trekked up to Columbus together and found the meet-up, despite us both being directionally challenged ;) Shane and Holly were the sweetest of hosts, organizing the event, having fun questionnaires for us to fill out and some prizes for a few lucky gals (hint-hint, me!) I was entirely too excited to meet Holly, and I love that we both screamed equally as loud when we spotted each other.

And don't let this picture below fool you… It was YOURS TRULY who parked it by that table of food for most of the event. I couldn't get enough of that cheesy dip and bread. Or the s'mores bars. Goodness, bloggers know how to do things right!! Especially us Ohio gals!
It's amazing the friends you make all from opening up Blogger.com and writing whatever crap comes to mind. Blogging has truly introduced me to some amazing ladies. Some that I've "known" for years, others than show up at events like these and I get a chance to talk to for the very first time! There is a group picture floating around somewhere, and I can't wait to see. To see all of us Ohio ladies… all from completely different walks of life, different careers, ages, stages in life- but we can all come together over blogging, of ALL things! :) So thanks, blogging for contributing to my social life and for forcing me to meet people I might not otherwise have met.

  8. I'm so glad you went! I loved seeing all the pictures. I had a similar reaction when I got to meet Holly. There may not have been screaming, but it was just this recognition and "oh, it's really you!" Even if I have to travel to Cincinnati I WILL meet you and Kayla someday, hopefully sooner than later.
