Crossing the Virtual Friendship Line

Ahhhh, Monday….never my favorite day, but especially not this Monday, since it signals the end of a glorious weekend. It was packed with family fun and projects…but what made it so special was the time spent with new friends. I am so grateful that this blog has brought these girls to my life!

Me, Courtney & Megan

Megan and I have seen each other several times since meeting through our blogs, but this was our first time meeting Courtney in person. I am so thrilled to no longer refer to her as ‘my blog friend Courtney from California.’ Now she’s just, my friend Courtney! (You bloggers know what I mean…when you talk to someone in your ‘real life’ about a blog friend…you always have to preface. And even then the person looks at you funny.) Even our husbands hit it off and became fast friends!


One of the best parts was having them over to our house…watching them see it in person was funny. I guess pictures don’t really show the whole package.

Why yes I’m wearing the same outfit as my profile pic!

We also met a few blog readers while out-and-about the city (a first for me)! Even though my face turned beet-red and I clammed up like a Lohan in court, I loved meeting them, and was so glad they said ‘Hi.’ Thank goodness I wasn’t picking my nose at the time (or was I?!)!

We had such a great weekend, and I’m already looking forward to next time…and hopefully meeting more of my online friends! Who wants to plan one big blogger party?! Have you met any of your blog friends in person? I’ve got tons I’d love to run in to!

  4. What fun! Too much cuteness in those photos! Haven't met any blog friends in person, but I'd love to. I totally know what you mean about telling your "real life" friends about your "blog friends". They don't really get it!

  8. Hahaha… clamming up like a Lohan in court! That would totally be me! Yes, whenever I've used "blog friend" I'm met with the look that screams, "Oh, I didn't realize you we're the gamer type…"

  23. I love, love, love meeting blog friends in person. It's the number one reason I go to blog conferences. I've even thrown several events in LA for bloggers.

    I'm hoping to throw a blogger party/meetup in Dallas in March, just before the Blissdom blogger conference. I hope you would consider coming!
