All the Relevant Details: Blogger Meet-Ups with Photos of Only Me
Here’s a re-cap of our latest Chicago blogger meet-up at Deliciously Vintage. All the relevant details are here…unless you want to know anything of substance. I’m afraid I’m all out of substance.
1: It took four forms of transportation, 54 minutes, and an embarrassingly large number of “Excuse me!”s for me to make it to our meet-up spot. One of the forms of transportation was my bike, on which I rode with 12 nearly smashed cupcakes and one bottle of rapidly un-chilling champagne, almost running over a small child who was gawking at me. It was an oddly fun commute (well, maybe not for that child).
2: Upon arriving, Lisa and I discovered that we’d both worn dresses with hacked-off sleeves. We each did the hacking ourselves, but not in coordination with one another (mine actually occured during a slumber party with Tania). Anyway, this is what happens when someone is your blogger partner- you share freakish similarities.
3: The goody bags, wrangled by Tabitha and Lisa, were killer. I’m a gift-grubbing greedy-pants, so I was excited to find that our tote bags looked more like loot from a robbery. Though, come to think of it, there weren’t any big screen tv’s in there. I’ll have to talk to T and L about that for next time.
4: There are some cool bloggers in Chicago. Despite my tiredness and the aforementioned sweaty commute, I managed to have some great conversations with a number of ladies I’d never met (including Annie, who is new to the city and straight-up awesome) and a few of my favorite gals, too.
5: I’m so vain I had my photos taken by both Lisa and Andrea (my own camera died about 3 minutes into the meet-up). I think they both made me look better than I do in real life. I should probably be bothered by that, but I’m not. I was wearing one of my favorite colors for summer/fall, this crazy royal blue, so I was too pleased to be bothered by pretty much anything.
And there you have it, the least important details of an evening full of conversation and “get-to-know-you”ness. For actual information and pictures of someone other than me, check out the posts of some of the other bloggers who were there.
