Well you got to have friends...
I got to sit right next to Mrs. Chicky, who actually has a real name! And it's not Chicky, either. She's just lovely. Smart and sort of regal with such beautiful posture and mannerisms. Made me calm just being next to her.
In this photo, Paula, Mrs. Chicky, and Binky are chatting post meal. Binky brought "The Boss" who is the most adorable two-year old, and VERY TALENTED. She can do a mean Johnny Cash imitation of Ring of Fire. But not on demand. She also is an excellent coloring artist, a brilliant conversationalist and the best behaved two I've ever seen. She's a real keeper, that one. Binky is pretty and a good writer and drove all the way from a neighboring state so I love her.
Across from us sat Major Bedhead and her delightfully WELL-BEHAVED daughters. Man, were those kids good. Major Bedhead, who also has a real name, is just as amusing in real life as she is online. I enjoyed her company a lot.
Directly across from me is the most beautiful blogger on the planet, the absolutely stunning Miguelina, aka The Reluctant Housewife. She's so smart and thoughtful and really gave us all a lot to mull over about blogging family issues without causing anyone pain.
Next to Miguelina was a one of my personal blog favorites, Fairly Odd Mother. If you don't read her yet, start today. She's just as funny and as genuine as you can get. She always has something that cracks me up, and today was no exception. Love her!
Going towards the right of the table was the mom and daughter pair that blogs at Pinks and Blues. They look SO MUCH alike. It's always amazing to me to see women that are related that mirror each other. That is so not the case in my own family. I didn't get to talk much to them because they were too far down the table.
Sitting next to Pink and Blue was Paula of Rock the Cradle, who was dropped off by her hottie doctor husband and delightful daughter. She's very outgoing and I think we probably have a lot in common besides our love of her neighborhood bakery. I hope we can maybe get together and schmooze again.
Alex, of Formula Fed and Flexible Parenting arrived late, but sat right down and joined in the conversation. She's so friendly and has the most infectious laugh. I wish I had more time to talk with her. Next time!
Mrs Chicky says we're from New England so we do not gush, so I guess I can't say any more. But fun was had by all, and we're all wanting to do this again. Soon. Please! Stumble It! JBlog Me
