Lunchtime Fun!

Guess what I got to do today?

I got to meet another of my favorite bloggers IRL (in real life)!

Moriah is in town visiting family and we met for lunch at Panera. It was wonderful! I've been following her blog for a while now, and her wit (and adorable kids) keep me coming back for more! And isn't she beautiful?? (the correct answer is yes!)

It was a beautiful, sunny (and hot!) day so we sat outside. Moriah, I'm sorry if you're sunburned--my arms and face are pretty red. I had no idea we were getting so much sun.

We enjoyed talking about our families, politics, religion, and of course, blogging!

I tried to figure out how many bloggers I've met IRL, and so far I think I'm up to 12.

1. Holly
2. Joanne
3. Julie (I actually met Julie before she had a blog, but she was my first internet-turned-real-life-friend)
4. Trish
5. Angie
6. Amy
7. Abby (Abby and Angie and Amy are sisters!)
8. Kate
9. Carrie
10. Leah
11. Kimberly

...and now
12. Moriah

Next up...(hopefully!)

13. Wendy and
14. Jenn

Anyway, getting to add a new blog friend to my IRL list was amazing, and Moriah, I had a great time. Whaddya say we make it an annual event?

I'm in.

Holly said...

Sounds to me like you need a Siesta...Fiesta, that is :o)

Think how long your list would be!

Been praying for you today!

That is so fun! And I loved looking at your list of Blogger friends turn IRL!

I wondered if you were getting to met another bloggy gal!

Meredith! I'm so glad you stopped by my blog. I LOVE making new blog friends! The funny thing is, I have been reading yours through a link from Kelly and just haven't ever left a comment. I enjoy reading about your life in Colorado. Yes, I am an Arkansas girl through and through! I will look forward to coming back to read about your beautiful family (and to get some more coupon clipping tips)! :) Thanks again for coming by. I know I'll be checking in on you regularly!

Leigh Ann said...

Oh, and I'm so jealous of all the bloggers you have met IRL. I have only met one IRL! How fun!

Brenda said...

Wow, you've met a lot of blogging pals! I haven't met any IRL, but then I've only been blogging since Dec.
It was actually pretty warm here today as well. Hallelujah, I think summer is here. I told my husband, after the Looonng winter, I promise I won't complain at all this summer about the heat. We'll see ;)

Have a great last week of school duties!

God bless,

add me to your future list... I just KNOW God's gonna find a way!!!!

ps- i just got caught up on your blog... I'm so behind and can't comment on every single post, but I want you to know I'm seriously your biggest fan... so glad I found your blog or you found me or whatever!

Wow, Mer, you're racking up quite the list! You were the second blog friend I met in real life, though I have quite a few real life friends who blog.

How fun! One of my CA blogging friends is going to visit in AUgust to meet all the Okie girls! Small, small world.

Jenn said...

Wow look at your list! How fun that you have met so many blog friends.

I am hoping that it works out for us to meet on our trip to CO (July or Aug). I will keep you posted when we set a date for our trip.

Trish said...

I know you and I will be seeing each other again ~ if not on this earth than in heaven for sure. I hope we're able to get together again in Colorado before that, though!

Oh, by the way, you've been tagged. Go here

You are ALWAYS meeting bloggers! How funny! I have met 5. And they were all just as good in person as they were on their blogs.
