Well, if I drank Sangria in 1999 which I did not. I had much cheaper taste buds then. Like Budweiser taste buds. Don't judge.
Anycheapbeer, I met three fabulous bloggers plus got to hang out with my new girlfriend, Lee. (You all know Lee. I have already written extensively about my undying passion for her). And while we might not have rocked the Casbah, the Heavens were. A terrific storm broke out and the lights were knocked out and stayed out. But being Moms as we are, we called for pizza, posted mini Hurricane lanterns around the table like a campground and shared stories as if it were a fire.
First off, I met two of my all-time Bloggy loves, Erin from the Mother Load and Tracie from Stir Fry Awesomeness. I have been following these two since I was a baby blogger and they rock. In combo with Lee, I felt like the new girl at school whom the cheerleaders invited over (and not in the cruel joke gone bad turned revenge-horror film kind of way)! They are both super cool and as funny in person as on their brilliant blogs. Also, Erin went off and doubled her donation to Heifer International from $50 to $100 which I matched. This makes her my hero and takes our total to $220! Yay!
But that is not all. I met a new blogger who happened to share a lot of East Texas history with my family. It was fun talking to her about shared landmarks and Golden Triangle folks. She is Leiah from A Southern Belle Trying Not to Rust (you've got to love that name, don't you?) She is funny and pure Southern woman. In other words, a great lady with whom to share an evening.
So all in all, super fun. Thanks, ladies for a great evening and even better conversation!
