They do exist!
No, I'm not referring to the talking M&Ms on the M&M Christmas commercial but rather Columbus bloggers. I had the opportunity to finally meet some awesome ladies on Monday evening at the Cheesecake Factory at Easton. I'm not gonna lie, I was a little nervous! I felt like I was going on a blind date except I already knew about their life. Ok, that sounds creepy, but it's not, I swear. I think I got even more nervous when I realized I was running a little late because I took my sweet old time shopping at lululemon....but I did score some amazing pants so it might have been worth being 5 minutes late.
Since I'd been reading about some of these bloggers for months & months now, it was great to meet them in person & to get a chance to meet some new bloggers....well, new to me! It was funny that someone would start telling a story and we would know the people in the story (significant others, siblings, etc.) because we'd been reading about them everyday. There was no need to say, for example, Todd is my fiance because anyone reading my blog knows who Todd is.
Before we left, Steph was nice enough to give us all a Christmas ornament. I picked pink of course and then realized when I got home that I didn't have a tree to hang it on. Unfortunately, my apartment is so small I can't even fit a tree anywhere without having it look too cluttered. Fortunately, Todd & I will be married (!) next Christmas so I'll have a tree to hang it on then. For now, it's hanging on my bedroom door.
All in all, it was a fantastic evening & there's already talk about a 2nd blogger meet up. I can't wait!
