Saturday evening, at about 5PM, I met up with Mags, from Ms Maggie Moo talks 2 U and Melisa with One S, from The Suburban Scrawl and here I am with those lovely young women:
We had a light supper and we chatted and had a great time getting to know one another. Not that we didn't 'know' each other from blogging, but still, there is a certain reality to assumptions made through blogging after one actually meets another blogger IRL. And you get to see that the person you met online is just the same 'live and in color'.
I had my laptop with me - I had thought I might live twitter while we were together - but it was too much fun talking and listening and there just wasn't time.
Mags got her "Chicago Style Hot Dog" - two of them, in fact. Man, ya gotta love a girl who loves her hot dogs.
And during the day, she actually went to Wrigley Field - just because she loves baseball.
Grannie made hats for them, as well. Mags had had a bad Etsy experience - what she got, as a hat for her Chicago trip, was not as pictured - so Grannie volunteered to make her a hat. And one for Melisa, as well. The only problem here is that for some reason, I don't seem to be able to upload any more pictures right now - so I guess visual proof is going to have to wait for the girls to publish their photos.
And, of course, Saturday was the publication date for 'The Inferno' Challenge, "The Butterfly Circus". The link to the results is here.
It was a nice weekend.
