One of the *best* parts about my week in Dallas was the opportunity to meet up with two of my favorite bloggers. I was so excited that these girls were able to fit me into their packed schedule, despite only having about 24 hours' notice of my arrival in the city.
The first "blog date" I had was with Mojito Maven from Make Mine A Mojito. We planned to meet up at a local Starbucks after she finished work for the day, which worked perfectly into our schedules. Sadly, I started coming down with something earlier that morning, and was SO nervous that I might have to cancel. After $60 in over-the-counter drugs from CVS, I felt ready to go for the big meet up.
My mom was sweet enough to drive me there, since I'm totally clueless about driving in D Town. You've gotta love trying to explain the nature of our little blog world to people... she kept saying things like "are you sure you know she's not some creepy old man?", etc. Pretty priceless.
I had soooo much fun! As soon as I saw her, it felt like I was meeting an old friend. She is just the *coolest*, so down to earth and easy to talk to. She bought me a delicious tea, which was so sweet of her (and what flavor was that again, MM? I loved it!) I felt like our meeting came at just the right time for me- she was full of great advice regarding all these looming questions I've had regarding the wedding, being a newlywed, and financial matters. I just kept thinking "Gosh! Why can't I move to Dallas?! This girl is so much fun..." Next thing we knew, 2 hours had flown by (with Mama Martini sitting in the parking lot, paying bills... Whoops!). I had such a nice time, I'd even forgotten I was coming down with something.
Thanks again for a great coffee date, Mojito Maven... Your candid advice on everything was appreciated so much. Thanks for laying everything out on the table for me, and being such an open book. Looking forward to seeing you during my next visit!
