Day 325 0r We Partied Like It Was 1999

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!

I'm so glad I wasn't the only one who felt nervous. I swear it was like my first date with That Man. We're too close not to get together again so be forewarned - this will happen again!

I posted my sopapilla cheesecake recipe tonight. Next time, the White Trash Tiramisu for sure.

And, I am already spraying the perfume for our date on Thursday night...bring the condoms.

Another lovely post!! :) Date? what date? :(

I've being having big issues with my p/c. Hence my response is a bit late, Tracie.

Hope you have a super great day!

Big hugs!

If Lee cheats on me, I will be super sad. Just remember who met who first. Traci, you'd best back off!

You already know I'm jealous, but I'll say it again. I'm jealous.

Tracie said...

I had so much fun!

Even though I don't put out, I'm a little jealous that you and Lee are having another date.

I love it when the power goes out, especially when I'm in good company. The best conversations can happen without the distraction of electricity.

I was 10 in 1999, so I'm never going to understand the real relevance of that song.

My apologies for not commenting more often- I'll try harder in future!

Oh I am so Jealous. I wish I could meet some fellow bloggers. I will have to work on that. Sounds like you had a blast.
