This past Friday I had the extreme pleasure of meeting some of my favorite bloggers (and their significant others, but sorry guys, my loyalties lie with your ladies!) I can honestly say it was one of the best nights I’ve had in a very long time. We’ve been planning this meet-up ever since Anni and her fiance Ross decided to spend a long weekend in DC…back in March! Needless to say, we’ve all been looking forward to this for quite awhile.
We started the evening at Cafe Green near Dupont Circle. It’s an all-vegan/vegetarian menu which, I’m not gonna lie, kind of scared me. While Josh is fairly adventurous when it comes to food, I knew he probably wouldn’t go for that kind of place, so we grabbed a quick bite before. BUT! I did try the “Raw Cheesecake” at Cafe Green and let me tell you it was delicious. Even Josh was impressed. And the wine was good so that’s always a plus. Of course, I have no pictures from our time at Cafe Green, but I’m sure if you head over to Anni’s blog this week she’ll have a few.
During dinner we did what any normal group of internet friends would do: called another internet friend who lives in another state! However, Layla, being the call-screener we all knows she is, didn’t pick up. So we left a voicemail that was probably at least 5 minutes long. Sorry, gal! Thankfully she called back and we all had a chance to talk to her. Just fyi, she is SO CUTE on the phone. The southern accent gets me every time.
After we finished at Cafe Green we headed over to Front Page for some more drinks and dancing. Finally I brought my camera out to play.
I was definitely ready to dance so as soon as they opened up the floor I ran to claim a spot. The DJ at Front Page was absolutely terrible, but I managed to bust a move anyway. The wine certainly helped.
Get it, girls.
If I can be real honest for a sec, I’m fuzzy on the details of a lot of these pics. I remember taking them, but the scenarios escape me. For example, this one of me and Josh:
One by one the girls began to leave and before we knew it the only ones left were me, Steph and Josh. So we danced a bit more, judged the shitty DJ,
and took one more pic to end the night!
Girls, I had so much fun with all of you. To those of you who I hadn’t met, I’m so glad we were finally able to meet. To those of you who I’ve met before (or known for 20 years), I’m so glad we could get together again. I’m incredibly blessed to know such amazing women. I can’t wait to see everyone again soon!!
**EDITED TO ADD…**
I have a few observations about the girls who I hadn’t yet met.
-Maria: Cutest laugh ever!! Was not expecting that. Seriously, adorable. This is going to sound weird, but I really love making people laugh but I love even more when they have cute laughs!
-Jess: Hilarious!! She has the best one-liners ever. The things that came out of her mouth…just hilarious.
-Anni: So little! How did I not know she’s like the tiniest most adorable lil thing ever? (I say that with a lot of love, Anni. Not making fun of you at all.)
*I know I don’t have to say this, but all pictures are my own so please ask before taking them. Thanks!
