My First Bloggy Meetup!

While we were down in Maryland visiting with Phil's family over Thanksgiving, we made plans to meet up with The Gales from All Things Gale.  Lisa's blog always makes me pee my pants laugh, and I knew she was the type of blog buddy that could easily translate into a friend IRL.  (That's blog-snob for In Real Life).

We brought them over some coffee, and they served us lunch, and we chatted as though we've known each other for years.  Although, one of the first things she said was "Phew, I'm glad you're not a serial killer!"  Ha!  The feeling was mutual :)

Maggie was in love with Elena and wanted to take her did I :)

 Eamon goofed around with Leo...

and Lisa didn't even bat an eye when the boys started throwing the football in her house.  What a cool mom!

I may not be a serial killer, but I was almost a kidnapper.  I mean, how cute is this baby girl!?!?!?
I only wish we lived closer, but at least we have some friends to visit when we travel down to Maryland each year.  Thanks for hosting us Gale Family, and we will happily return the favor!


  1. very cool!!
    sounds like lots of fun!

  2. Wish I could meet up! I've only gotten to meet one other fellow blogger.

  3. Oh my gosh she is gorgeous! You were so close to me, and yet so far :) You'll have to let me know next time you're in MD, maybe WE can meet up!

  4. Isn't it SO fun to meet bloggers IRL?! And, it's always fun to actually hear them talk vs. reading them. Oh, and yes, it's always good that they are normal, real people and not a crazy person! :)

  5. How fun!!!
    Her kids are just adorable....kidnapping would have been on my mind too!

  6. Okay Okay I'll fess up. Colleen paid me to be her friend for the day... ;)

    Your photos came out great! I was so sleepy after our Thanksgiving festivities but you guys really brought the party! And my longtime friend - coffee. We had an awesome time :)

  7. cute pics. i love her blog too.

  8. Really like the graphical design and navigation of the site, easy on the eyes and good content. other sites are just way too overflowing with adds.

  9. thanks amigo! great post!.
