Monday’s My Pick: Bloggy friend meet-up

{“Why mama? WHY?”}

SOOOOOOO, I mentioned last week that I was going to be meeting some of my bloggy friends. AND, I did! It was fun. We met at Greenlake in Seattle. I SO wish they all lived closer. I drove up there with my Mom and Grammy for the day on Friday. 3.5 hours up there and 3 hours on the way home. WAY worth it though.

{Yes, Ruari’s the only one crying.}

It was almost like I was meeting a group of famous people! I’ve been viewing photos and reading about these girls… and then I got to meet them in person. Looking at the group photo of our little babies is so weird! I swear we really did meet and I didn’t just photoshop all of them together. ;D

ROLL CALL (from left to right): cutie Corbin from The Chronicles of Corbin, handsome Henry from It’s a Wonderful Life, buddy Bennett from It’s a Beautiful Life, lovely Laureli from The Paper Mama, super duper Stella from Hi, Baby, and rockin’ Rowan from Hi, baby!

{Look at all those cute babes!}
{Bennett, Ruari, and Stella.}

{Beautiful little Rowan}

{Ruari and Stella}


Ruari’s first experience on a swing… she thought it was alright. I think it was nap time. 🙂

{Mandy, Henry, and Allie}

{Now it’s Henry’s turn to touch Bennett’s hair! Look at all those hot mama’s!}

Things I’ve learned from the bloggy meet-up:
– Ruari is a toy hoarder. She had about 5 toys in her lap at one point…
– All these ladies are even more beautiful in person.
– Their babies are freakin adorable!
– I wish I lived closer to all of them!

AND: My Monday’s My Pick:

The Hi, Baby store on Etsy! It’s Melissa’s shop. Really cute stuff! I’m lucky enough to own the bandanna bib and a cute heart head band. Check it out! Please!
