My First Blogger Meetup and Real Life Friendships

This weekend I was in Austin, Texas, y'all visiting a friend for her birthday. I was exstactic when Jenni sent me a tweet asking if I was up for a last minute blogger meet up. Are you kidding me?! Of course!

So, we messaged back and forth, decided on a restaurant, then we swapped numbers. I was kind of relieved when she offered to go to the restaurant early to get a table, that way I'd be able to check her out beforehand, and just in case she was some psycho killer, I could duck out early ha!

Always meet in a public venue (and if you're Jenni, carry mace in your purse!).

We had brunch at Abel's on the Lake. They had really good food and delicious mimosas, and it's outdoor patio looked out over Lake Austin. The scenery around us was absolutely beautiful. I was even lucky enough to witness Jenni's first experience enjoying a yummy mimosa. You're welcome, hon!

It's hard to actually think about all the topics we covered. We talked about blogging of course, the future of our blogs, and where we see them down the road. In just the short time we were together, she gave me a quick run through on some blogging tips she's been meaning to share. There are so many opportunities out there in the blogosphere.

Here are a few pictures of our wonderful meet up. I can truly say that Jenni is by far one of the sweetest people I know. And if it weren't for blogging, I never would've met her.


Until our next meet up... Jenni, you were a joy to meet and such a wonderful friend. Be sure to check out Jenni's recap on our meet up! Thanks again for being so willing to meet me at such last minute. :)

  22. I've got my first blogger meet tomorrow and I'm really excited - the better half thinks I'm mad and it could be anyone, but I'd say it was her that had to worry more as she's a really successful blogger, not like little ole me!!! XX
