ONE - I had the opportunity to meet-up with some amazing local St. Louis bloggers last night for dinner. I (ahh!) organized a little get-together for a few of my favorite bloggers that I've been dying to meet for ever now. I sent out the invite and they actually said yes - some of them even showed up! (We had a few cancellations due to illness, funerals and family obligations - you all were missed.) I've never really done anything like that before and I have to admit that I was SO nervous (like first-date-what-do-I-wear-will-she-like-me nervous). But everything went so well and it was wonderful to meet other women in my city that have similar interests. Our blogs cover a pretty wide range of topics, from fitness to fashion, infertitlity to babies, family to food. It was such a wonderful evening. I think we're definitely going to have to do this again soon! Thanks Liz, Dacy, Lindsay and Alyssa for taking the time out of your evening to meet up with me. (Also, how did 5 bloggers get together and no one managed to take a single picture?)
TWO - And speaking of meeting new friends, it looks like I'll be heading to Washington, D.C. for a couple days next month for work. I'll be in meetings all day, but if anyone in the area wants to meet up for drinks or dinner one evening, let me know! I'd love to get together!
THREE - Mac has been at his grandparents' since Wednesday afternoon and I'm going through serious baby withdrawals. I miss that kid so much! It's been almost 48 hours since I've seen him and I think I might die if I have to wait much longer. In other news, our house is so clean right now!
FOUR - Don't forget the that August Photo Challenge is open for submissions starting on Monday! Get your cameras out this weekend or go through your photos to find your favorite. The theme is SUNSHINE. Awesome prizes for the winner! Easy peasy to enter!
FIVE - I'll leave you with a few of my favorite links from around the interwebs this week:
