Monday... Always A Pleasure. #wait

4.14.2014
If you had told me 9 months ago when I birthed this baby blog that I would generate long lasting friendships with random women found on the internet, I probably would have called your bluff. I had no clue what blogland had to offer, nor could I conceive the thought of meeting someone on the internet and then agreeing to meet them in person. It sounded... dangerous. But you know me, danger is my middle name.

I have no clue where I got this dress or I'd tell you.

Pamela has set her blog to private for personal reasons, but if you know her from before, I'm sure you love her as much as I do. Actually, that's not possible because she is my twinsie and I adore her! 
We met months ago on my first blogger blate with two other fabulous ladies Tamara and Nicole. It was then that she won me over with her Mexican, margarita, gun shooting, dog loving self. And we've been in constant communication ever since!

Not to mention her husband is going through the police academy that I went through almost 3 years ago. (Not the exact same one, but the whole academy is pretty similar in general).


We spent the gorgeous day traveling around Asheville stuffing our faces with delicious food, sipping on refreshing beverages and enjoying the quirks of Asheville.

It's actually kind of neat seeing that Pamela and I hit it off and now we get to watch our husbands create a friendship.

If you ever get the chance to have a blate and you "know" the blogger well through her blog and you feel safe about it and met her in a public place (there are lots of "ifs" in these situations) I say go for it! I've seen people meet their future husbands through the internet, why not make a few bestie's?

  11. I love this idea of meeting people through blogging- I feel like it's hard for non-bloggers to understand though. "What? You're meeting a friends who you know from the Internet?"
    Oh well, such is life :)
