5 on Friday - Volume 4

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!  


  1. Love me a good blogger meet-up! Too bad you're not headed out to the West Coast. If you ever do, let me know!
    Happy Friday!

  2. hope you've been enjoying your free time while Mac visits his grandparents...but man the end of those visits definitely tugs on my heart strings! I'm always ready to have my baby back!

  3. How fun to get to hang out with blog buddies!! I wish you had a business trip to TX soon ;)

    OMG, I cannot even imagine how CLEAN my house would be if the babe was gone for a day or two. Hm. I might have to put my request into the grandparents! Haha!

    Happy Friday, hope your weekend is fun!

  4. Your son is so cute!

  6. Hey lady, found you through 5 on Friday and I love your little photography challenge. I am always trying to get better pictures so this sounds like fun! Your newest follower!

  7. Love that you planned a little blogger meet-up! I hear ya on it being nerve racking at first!! I actually met up with a few blog friends this morning for a play date and had so much fun. Hilarious, but true that "blog-land" is truly a wonderfully unique crazy fun world!

    And I bet your house is super clean. I can ONLY imagine! Bet you're excited to love on your sweet babe!!!

    Hope you guys have a great weekend!

  8. I just want you to know simply, I love your blog. Thanks for being you.

  9. Soooo I got really excited when I read you'll be in DC and it was hard to read the rest of your post :) I would LOVE to see you! When are you going to be here?

  10. I definitely want to try and make the next meet up! I'm sorry that I couldn't be there, but my family time was good, so there's that.
