In Other Blogging News


I'd call this an announcement of a blate, but that just doesn't really cut it.

This is more of a blarriage.

You know my friend, Lauren...

Well back in the day (okay maybe 4-5 months ago) I commented on her blog and said her awkward photos weren't awkward enough for me. Not impressed (except for the one of her with the plant...that one blew my mind). We spent part of the evening emailing awkward photos of eachother. And yeah, we hadn't talked about much else before then.

Fast forward to a month ago...we text, email, tweet, facebook, instagram, path...the works.

Then Lauren suggests that I become friends with her sister on Facebook since she lives in San Diego too.

Her sister, Jacki and I decide to meet up for lunch so she can prove I'm not a serial killer  can see how awesome I am. Come to find out Jacki and I live within a mile of each other. WEIRD, RIGHT!? Anyways I met Jacki and she resembles Lauren from what I can tell. I can't picture Jacki living on the east coast she is so laidback, easygoing, and fun. She fits perfectly in San Diego.

Sunday I find out Lauren is coming out to San Diego for five days in March!

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!

I mean...destiny? fate? I think so?

I'm so excited. So I guess it's a blarriage blate!

Blogging has given me so many non IRL friends, cough, Anna, cough. Which I mean, is kinda nice...there's no way to "flake" on them or have them "flake" on you. You just tweet a lot, facebook, text, facetime when ya feel like it. ;)

I am so appreciative of the blogging world and love finding new blogs who have so much to share. I love catching up on blogs of girls who I feel like belong with me in the babysitters club. Did I just date myself? You know you wanted to be a part of the babysitters club.

We're all so lucky to have blogging and be apart of this environment. I honestly believe that. Blogging is one of the best things I did in 2011.  You all continue to inspire me. I can't wait for the socal blogger meetup Saturday! I get to meet SIXTY! 6-0!! wonderful bloggers in the area. I can't wait to hug Katie and Meg. (Creepy, I know.)

Tomorrow. Me + You=You know what it isssssss!




Ps-I think I'm going to change my blog name. Just throwing that out there. What do you think?

  5. I'm always super jealous of the girls that can go to blogger meet-ups! I don't follow any blogs of girls from around my area. How do you find local blogs or does it just happen by chance?

  10. I have a favor to ask you... Me & my best friend started a blog for people that are struggling {especially with depression} and we were wondering if you could post about it, so more people could see it. It's youmattertoo.blogspot.com :) Please&thank you!!!

  11. I love our blarriage hahahaha.

    I do have to say though, why you gotta be all hating on the EC? By EC I mean East Coast, obviously. I was born and raised there, and I'm only forgiving you because forgiveness is key to a successful marriage ;)

    San Diego better be ready for this pregnant gal to rock some booty shorts!! For real though, I don't think that's going to happen, not if I develop cankles in the next 6 weeks especially.

    Also, if you don't own Toms by the time I get there, we're going to buy you some. End. Of. Story. B insists.

  12. Yay for tomorrow being Friday, and even bigger yay that you get to have a blate with your blog bestest in March! You must be beyond excited! If you ever come out to the East Coast, I request, scratch that, nicely demand that we meet! ;)

    Have fun on your blate!

  14. Very cool. I have met 5 bloggers IRL since starting my blog in Sept of 2010. Some of them have turned into my very dearest friends. I guess I am an Internet meeting kinda gal. Totally met my husband that way too. Excited to see how your SoCal meet up goes. I plan to do one for Mpls this spring. :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. I like your current blog name homegirl! :) But yes, I too wanted to be in the babysitters club. Love blates!

  18. Yay for blogger friends! See you tomorrow chica ;)

    New blog name? Hmmm...I like this one!

  19. You should totally change your blog name.

    "Awesome Possum". That one is my favorite of the ones you suggested to me, and although the "Seahorse Delight" was REALLY weird it's kind of growing on me too. I could see some pretty great color schemes coming out of that one.

  20. I love your blog name. It's definitely fitting a original! And I completely agree with you about blogging, although I have never met any bloggers, I always imagine I will run into one of you that live locally!

  21. Who didn't want to be in the babysitters club? I think I even considered starting up my own. However I really just wanted to be friends with claudia.

    Enjoy your weekend at the meet-up it's so great to have such an awesome network of peeps.

  22. ok .... love this.

    a. I am so excited that you and Lauren get to hangout IRL!!! i see how great of friends you are everyday on twitter and am so happy for yall to hug!!!
    b.i totally agree with that whole paragraph about blogging and sometimes I catch myself zoning out thinking about how surreal it is that all these girls are on here pouring their hearts out and we somehow become friends with one another! sooo special!
    c. I actually had to open the "Katie" in another tab to make sure it was me before I commented on how excited I am to hug you too!!!!!! Cant. Wait. !!!


    oh and D. i am obsessed with your blog name and when i decided to change mine to be more simplistic, I actually wished for a hot second I didnt know you so I could name mine "katie takes notes". True story, sorry friend! i cant believe I just admitted that...

  23. Yay for Blog Friends!! :) I have met many blog friends, but am waiting for that friend that I instantly just click with filled with constant messages, tweets and texts - it will happen, and hopefully I'll find some in Colorado near me too! :) I'm so glad that you have been able connect with so many friends, and sounds like this weekend is going to be fabulous!! :) And I like the blog name, but if you feel like changing it - do it!! ;)

  28. I'm so going to find a way to sneak into one of lauren's suitcases. You can check body bags, right? No, that's not creepy. I'm so jealous. We're gonna hug some day. Hopefully sooner than later.

    Can we be polygamists in this blarriage?

    p.s. are you still going to change your blog name after everyone is insisting that you not?
