If you have to be in a car accident, make sure you have plans to meet friends afterwards. Especially sassy ladies like the ones above. On Saturday night, I had a chance to meet some bloggers. Above, from left to right: Kalynne, Cheri & Jenn. I'm on the far right. It all came about with Kalynne, The Philosopher Mom, coming to town. She was presenting a paper: The Friendship of Buzz, Blog & Swag to The Society for Business Ethics. And... she was so impressive that they selected her paper as one of three finalists for best paper of the conference. Yes, Kalynne is impressive. She is mother of 9, has a PhD and is a professor at Auburn University. She won't let you feel inadequate though, she is lovely and fun and loves to laugh. She and Jenn from Juggling Life did a wonderful job of making sure the champagne was good. I would have joined in, but I needed something I could nurse all evening. So, of course that was...my JackO'Clock! I have been wanting to meet Jenn for quite a while, we are only a couple hours away from each other. I've often left comments on her blog that she should be writing a parenting book. She has amazing wisdom and loves discussing ideas on parenting. And she...is lots of fun, too. Which brings me to Cheri from Blog This Mom. I have been noticing Cheri's comments for months on sites that we both frequent and knew she was one of those fabulous San Diego blogger Mamas. I have only started reading her blog recently and she is an amazing writer. She has the ability to move you to tears and laughter in the same post. I had a blast with these ladies. Thanks so much, Kalynne for coming to town! Oh, YES. It was the night of the sexy, hot mamas. Although our waiter perhaps did not think so as we stayed there...for a few hours. But, we tipped him well so... that's what counts right?
If any of you bloggers have a chance to meet other bloggers whom you've been reading, do it! It is really a wonderful thing to connect in person. And Kalynne...we want to read that paper!
