pics... from the cooolest weekend eva!

so, yes... the AZ Blogger Meetup was pretty much amazing. some seriously cool girls and i was excited (and nervous) to meet them (almost) all (i say almost, because it was really hard to get to every-body... there were A LOT of bloggers there... but that's totally a good thing!
anywhoo... onward with the photos...
(small PS... I haven't edited any of these... because I just really wanna get them up! teehee)

this triple sweet girl is Rasha and thanks to the AZ Blogger Meetup... she's my new favorite friend! teehee
seriously, i am sooo super happy that i got to meet this girl and pal up with her for the whole day! ;-)
(ps, she's got some cute phone-photos on her blog, so go check 'em out)

back to the pics!

Courtney from Phoenix Is Haute... loooved her!!







Okay, so I don't have as many pics as I thought I did. lol. No worries. You can see plenty more over at the flickr group that Danielle from Sometimes Sweet started.

About the day...
we went to a ton of really cool places downtown (places that I would have never known were there had I not gone on this meetup) and it was really a beautiful day to be walking around. Chelsea is blogging about the details of the day, if you want to hop on over there. For me, I got to mingle with a bunch of really cool people, had some great talks, meet and greets, laughed... alot, and just had an amazing day. just being around all these ladies was hugely inspiring! so many different ladies with an array of interests, all joining together for the sake of blogging. it was really cool. really inspiring, and just nice to get to know some local bloggers!

About the night...
dinner was delicioso! and i got to meet some MORE really cool people!
(don't mind my old-lady smile, lol)
Danielle is such a delight in person! she's lovely in blogland, but irl... she's a doll! and i adore her!
Carrie is such a sweetheart... i felt like i've known her for years! the first second i saw her i had to grab and hug here. she is full of warmth and kindness in her heart and i truly enjoyed my evening with her!

The entire event was truly one of the best days I've had in such a long time. I feel so blessed to have been able to attend and meet so many wonderful people. And I will most certainly be attending the next event!! ;-)
