Summer Hiatus

The north bay had a strange weather snafu earlier this month. It was in the 60's!

 I wore this outfit to go to an event I have never attended before: a meet-up. No, not the kind for singles. It was a women's meet up. I got there about 15 minutes early, and the others got there about 12 minutes late. To say that I was freaking out would be an understatement. It was $2 appetizer night and while sitting at the bar (drinking soda water), I ordered black bean and cheese taquitos. What I got was a mouthful of un-identified meat. I'm vegetarian.

The evening got much better however once the girls started to arrive. Actually, it was a lot of fun! Meeting other women from all walks of life, all with fun and interesting stories to tell, proved  surprisingly uplifting. I'm surprised that I never thought of joining a group like this before.

Well, I take that back. I never considered joining a group like this because I was afraid that it was for either a) lonely people, or b) uber wealthy snobby trophy wives. I was certainly not the latter, and I hoped I wasn't the former. Whatever my misgivings on women groups, I had a lot of fun. There was no loud music, no dancing, and no men. Just a few women sitting in a circle, talking and having a good time.

(It just dawned on me that I've never been to a blogger meet up...how?!)

  1. I have never attended a blogger meet-up, either, and I am really sad about this. One of my blogger friends came to STL earlier this summer, but I was too busy with school to go. :( Sad face. I can't wait for my first one, though! I am sure that it will be a super good time when it happens.

    P.S. Your outfit is adorable.
    P.P.S. I would be up for going to a ladies' meet-up. I bet it was really fun to meet so many different people in one place.

  2. I love the color effects in these photos. They are beautiful. That shade of pink is so stunning against black and white.

    Your girls meet up sounds awesome. I wish there was something like that for me here. I would go in a heartbeat. :)

    I've only had two blogger meet ups. I went out to Cali three years ago and met a very close bloggy friend of mine. And then I discovered a bloggy friend right here in town! Those are always fun.

  3. Love your skirt and red bag! I've never been to a blogger meet-up either, someday...

  4. You look gorgeous! That pink is so lovely!
    It's great that you tried something new...it is a little scary, but usually fun. I have been to local blogger meet ups here in Austin and really enjoy them, I've met some really talented people!

  5. Blogger meet-ups are too fun! I hate being early with nothing to do, but glad you met some great people.

    Love the second picture!
