Blogging is fun!

Don't mind me while I become StubHub's number one customer over here in Dallas. The Mavs are in the playoffs, the Stars are in the playoffs, the Rangers' season is in full force.... Must. Buy. All. Of. The. Tickets. 

Good thing I have a 4 day work week followed by 6 days of vacation and my mom flying in on Thursday night! With that said, wouldn't you think Monday would be a little bit easier knowing you only have 4 days this week? Whelp, it isn't. I'm not sure if it is because I'm getting older or what, but it is a mission fit for Dr. House's team to figure out how to open my eyelids when that 6:30am alarm rings on Monday morning. Or perhaps the cause is General getting out of bed and peeing all over the carpet at 3am. So weird, I'm not sure what is up with that poor little boy but I think it deserves some monitoring. 

Any who, my weekend was filled with blogging events and fun! On Friday night I went to my first ever group blogging meet up! 


We seriously had the best convo, it was so fun to make new friends! From left to right is Stephanie from Outgoing Lady, Stephanie from Geek Glam, Lindsay from The Wife in Training, me (hey girl hey!), and Sevi from Ware is the Vodka

And here is a group pic of everyone that came! I didn't realize that the people on the left were with our group until we all got together to take this picture, so unfortunately I don't know their names to tag them. But, maybe I will meet them at a future meet up! Thank you so so so much to Miss Jessica for hosting this event for us at Midnight Rodeo!


The best part about meetups like this, is that you get invited to other events too! Cris, pictured in the front row just to my right, was kind enough to invite me to Nordstrom on Sunday afternoon to learn all about the French candle and fragrance company Diptyque! I currently only have one of these candles that my best gal pal Magen gave me, but I'm officially ready to grow my collection, starting with this one. 






And finally, what would a weekend be without these two?









In other news, 6 days until I can have Starbucks again. Not that I'm counting or anything.

    You're becoming quite the socialite, my friend. You should socialite your way to Orlando. Just a thought...

  14. The picture of your two dogs together is one of my favorite of all times. I'm so jealous of all your new friends. I'll get over it if you just send me one of those candles. K, thanks bye.

  21. Sounds like such a fun weekend... I see those candles everywhere and think they're so cute, but I can't justify paying $60 for a small candle. What's all the hype?

    ReplyDelete
  22. How fun! Now if only I can find more than two Cali bloggers in my area to do the same....

  23. Seriously, the pups are killing me lately.

  24. Sounds like such a fun weekend! I haven't been to a blogger event since last summer. I should probably go to some more because they're always awesome.

  25. I'm about to blow your mind, if you gave up Starbucks for Lent. Lent actually ends Thursday evening. THAT MEANS THURSDAY NIGHT YOU CAN HAVE STARBUCKS! I'm not joking. Look it up.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Awesome! I live in the DFW area and would love to be apart of the meet ups as well! Could you pass on the information on how I can get involved? Thank you so much!!

  30. I have yet to have a blogger meet up in my city yet! :(
    I love Stubhub! Been going to so many Vancouver Canucks games because of the cheaper tickets... pretty bummed out they had a crap year and didn't make it the playoffs. I just hate it when my friends question my purchases on Stubhub... all my purchases has been legit, don't fill those doubts in my head!

  31. I have totally grown to love blogger meet ups and so appreciate the new friends and blogs I have come in contact with as a result of going to them. Glad you had a great time!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Goodness that night was so much fun! So I am thinking we need to plan another night out soon, because its a must! <3 you!!!!!

  33. Hi! Firstly, love your blog, obviously. Second, I've got a question for you: You have two dogs and you work full-time (I think you work full-time?). How do you manage your dogs during the day when you're at work? Do you have someone take them out for a walk at lunch time? I'm going through rough times with my boyfriend and it may end up in a full-on breakup and that means I'd be living alone with my Yorkie, and working full-time. I'd love to hear your advice if you have any on the subject. Thanks! xx from Switzerland

  34. So happy we got to meet!! I'm so bummed that I didn't get to chat as much and even more bummed that I don't live in Dallas with y'all! Let's hang again next time I'm in town! xx
