Old friends who just met

 So it might sound cheesy, but go with me on it.  There's a song in the original Muppet Movie from the 70's sung by Gonzo (yes the weird blue one) called "I'm Going to Go Back There Someday".  It's somewhat melancholy in nature and comes at a point in the movie where they're kind of down on their luck, but there is one lyric I have always loved - "There's not a word yet for old friends who've just met."  Well, that is how I felt about my meetup last night with Maca!  I don't want to take away from the other experiences I've had with meeting bloggers - I have made some wonderful friends and connections both locally and across the country and world and you all mean the world to me.  I just found that from the moment we sat down together it was like Maca and I had known each other for years.  We had so much fun!  We chatted about everything from fashion and shopping, to our childhoods, our husbands,  our pets, and we talked a lot about food - cause we're two girls who like to eat!  We enjoyed cupcakes - me a Tiramisu one, her a Dulce de leche one and also some rose wine and some nuts to munch on as well.  Before we knew it - three hours had gone by!  Being it was a work night we had to call it a night and head home at that point - not to mention the staff at the restaurant were kind of starting to clean up and kick us out since they were closing up in a half hour.  I even surprised Mr. Monkey with how long I was gone - he was getting ready to send out a search party!

Anyway, it was a blast and I can't wait to meetup again - thank you Maca for a delightful evening!!  Below is a picture we asked one of the restaurant staff to take of us - though I think she thought we were nuts and I'm pretty sure she was like "I wish you ladies would just get out of here so I can be done for the night!"  Besides that though - if you're local, I highly recommend Cupcake - the cupcakes are delicious and as long as you order something small (like the nuts we shared) you can also order wine!

And because this is still a fashion blog, I also had the Pants Monkey take a picture of me before I headed out.  I took my look from yesterday and jazzed it up a bit for nighttime.

And finally, I liked my casual Friday outfit enough that I thought I'd share that real quick too.  Channeling a hippie vibe today.  Thanks also to your feedback/patience as I test out Disqus.  So far I *think* it might be working.  We'll give it a few days I think!  Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

  1. I felt the same way! I had so so much fun (and you can tell in the picture my eyes were getting smaller with the wine haha) We definitely need to do it again :)

  2. That's so cool that you hit it off so well! Sounds like you had a great time.

    Love your hippie vibe!

  3. Aww, how wonderful that you guys had such a great time! I felt the same way when I had my Jersey blogger meetup :) Have a great weekend, Beth!

  4. I love blogger meetup stories! I wish I could meet so many of y'all in person.

    Love the long vest and headband for dinner out, and you look really lovely in your purple "hippie" top.

  5. LOL, and my cheeks were quite red too! It happens! Can't wait to do it again!

  6. Aww what a cool meet-up. I love your orange and sweater combo. Perfect for fall dressing. Glad you hit it off.

    I know Lynne and I had the same kind of connection - like meeting someone you've known forever. Can't wait until I get to do another blogger meet-up.

  10. this sounded really fun! i would love to meet some local blogger girls one of these days but think i would prefer to do so on a smaller scale like this rather than one of the larger meet ups until i know a few people. and the restaurant you went to in st paul sounded like a really cute place! have a nice weekend!

  11. I totally get that Heidi, large groups can be kind of intimidating. If you would ever like to have coffee or something sometime, I'd be happy to meet up in a small setting like that! Or go on a Goodwill trip together! :)

  12. I wish that you, me, Lynne, Shelia, Megan, Ally and any others of the secret society of bloggers under desks could hang out sometime in person. Maybe someday, you never know!

  13. Ditto! See my comment above to Megan.

  14. You looked great for the meet-up, Bethie! I'm just excited to see ou next week, finally :)


  15. Blogger meetups are so much LOVE!!!! :) I wish my fave bloggers lived closeby so I could also indulge in cupcakes and wine!!! :) Hope you have a lovely weekend, Beth!

  16. Its so nice to meet and bond with other bloggers- there are a couple in ottawa who have become good friends of mine. Mmm the cupcakes sound yummy and i love your bohemian outfit. Have a great wkd beth! :-)

  17. Three hours! Wow! It must have been a wonderful time! Tiramisu cupcake sounds decadent!

  18. That sounds like fun, I love it when meeting new friends goes so well! You both look adorable too--I love that headband. I need more of those to jazz up my short 'do!

  19. I love Cupcake! I'm glad you had so much fun!


Thanks for stopping by and saying hello! It makes my day to hear from you!
