My First Meet-Up

TGIF!!

Last night, I had my first ever bloggy meet-up with cAc from Life in the Sweet Virginia Breeze.  cAc and I started our blogs around the same time and when we first started commenting back and forth on each other's blogs, I realized she looked really familiar.  Turns out, she used to coach swim team for the Cuties!

Over time, while blogging, we have gotten closer and closer and finally decided to have a meet-up!

We had dinner and one of my favorite places, Noodles & Company, and when I first walked up to cAc, I realized we both were wearing gold Jack Rogers, which was a funny coincidence, but not much of a surprise!  We ordered our food and then literally talked for almost 3 hours!  I had read on other blogs that when you meet-up with your blog-friends it usually is like you've known them forever, but I really didn't buy it...that has all changed now.  cAc and I have SO much in common and are already planning another hang-out sesh soon to continue our real-life friendship outside of the blog world!

Allie and cAc

Have you ever done a bloggy meet-up?

Have a fabulous weekend!

  25. You can read about my now semi-infamous meet with ADG of Maxminimus on his Blog...it was a tremendous evening. I also met up with the writer of The Trad and Boxing the Compas. As Tintin says on his blog...it is kinda like computer dating....

  30. Just bought some copper Jack Rodgers in San Fran and am loving them! Excited to hear that the blog meet up went well, I'm pretty sure if we hang out at some point we will have plenty to talk about :) I haven't gotten a chance to rendezvous with anyone yet though! Also, I love Noodles & Co. Have a great rest of the weekend!
