On Saturday night, I had a chance to meet some bloggers

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!

How sweet you are, and how lovely, too! Not to mention poised, because I would have been a puddle of panicked pity had I been rear-ended on the way to our rendezvous. (Gads - what's with the alliteration tonight? Must need more champagne. And 30 fewer pounds. Ugh.)

Okay, the paper is coming to you via email right now.

Aw shucks.

And Kalynne! You! Up there! Stop that this instant or I'm going to pull this comment section over. You. Are. Beautiful. Inside. And. Out.

And Jenn is so full of grace.

JCK, I am sorry you took a speeding car up your car's backside on the way, but I'm so glad you pressed on and made it to dinner. You are such a lovely woman. I look forward to digging in and reading your archives!

My post about our evening is COMING SOON TO A BLOG NEAR YOU.

Take care Ladies!

Kellan said...

I am so jealous, but it looks like you had a great time! They all seem like wonderful women and I know they must surly have enjoyed meeting you - my dear friend!

Take care - Kellan

Regarding this...I'm a coward, I still get the jitters when a blogger ask, "maybe (and she only mentioned maybe) we shall meet up some day"...let's hope I'll overcome this and be able to have great fun like you did.

Oh, I am SO jealous! And I now have three new blogs that I must check out. What a beautiful bunch of hot, sexy mamas :). So glad you had such a good time; why am I not surprised that you didn't let the accident stop you from getting to the fun stuff...

Denise said...

Me and Marathom Mom and Biscuit is the Answer get together all the time. Well, we were friends before we blogged, so that probably doesn't count!

Ellyn said...

It looks like a really fun night. Glad you were able to overcome your accident and have a fun night.

I'm glad you had the chance to dine with some of the San Diego blogging mamas! Cheri and Jenn are awesome! So happy you had a good time!

What a fine looking bunch of gals you are! It looks like that was a great evening.

Janet said...

So is this the same accident or did you get hit AGAIN! (I lose track, sorry.)
I would love to meet up with some bloggers, you among them! Sounds like a wonderful evening.

Jen said...

Are you coming to Pittsburgh anytime soon? Just sayin'
