Local Bloggers Brunch

Happy Monday!! (If I say it with cheer in my voice, maybe I'll actually believe it??) My weekend was a mixture of great times and not-so-great time times. On the down side, SweetPea came down with a fever Friday evening and it went up and down all weekend. Which meant she was in our bed all weekend. Which meant I got no sleep all weekend. Which means I am a walking zombie today. UGH. The Heela is taking her to the doctor today to see what is going on since her fever keeps getting up to 103* whenever the ibuprofen wears off. We fear strep throat... :(

However, on the up side, despite SweetPea not feeling well on Saturday, I was able to escape the house for a few hours to attend a Local Bloggers' Brunch! The brunch was the brainchild of the amazing Cassie from Primitive and Proper and Melissa from HOUSEography and was so much fun! 

Melissa was our gracious host, opening up her beautiful  home (in Arlington, Virginia) to 14 of us. We spent our time eating yummy food, sipping refreshing drinks and, of course, lots of chit-chatting and laughing!  It was so much fun to get to know other local bloggers and share project ideas, stories about our kids and plenty of blogging tips (and gripes). ;) 

Here's a picture of all of us (minus Danielle who had to leave early).

Front Row: Cassie, Amy, behind Amy is Renee, Sarah, Laurie, and Melissa

On our way out, our fabulous hosts gave us each one of these super-cute mustache mugs (complete with biscotti and a list of attendees). So sweet!

It really was a great time and I want to send a BIG thank you out to Melissa and Cassie for pulling it all together! THANKS ladies!!! :)

If you are a local blogger (DC Area) and want to be included on the list for the next gathering, send me an email and I'll be sure to get your name added! :)
