Here’s a bit of my first in person get together with a fellow blogger. 

I have been truly blessed to get to know such wonderful people via blogging.  However, up until now I haven’t had a chance to meet anyone in person.  Yesterday my family and I had a wonderful opportunity to have dinner with another blogger, mythbusterbeauty , and part of her family. 

I was a little nervous about meeting a beauty blog expert as I am so not!  I barely know what I am doing and this is the first year I have even worn moisturizer, sometimes foundation, and tried to clean my face regularly.  I thought oh no what will she say about my “stay at home mom and try to put a face on” face or my “I don’t have time to get a haircut I cut my own bangs” unruly curly/wavy hair.  But she was as sweet as can be and didn’t mention it at all…thanks Jen 🙂  Although I didn’t get a makeover. 

We met at the Cheesecake Factory to which I have only been to once before, with a friend, about 5 years ago.  My hubby and boys had never been before.  My boys could have played with the revolving door all day.  I don’t think they have ever been in one before or at least it didn’t seem that way.  It was like an amusement park!  See it just goes to show that if you keep it simple with kids even a revolving door will impress them 🙂

It was good food however the best part of the evening was getting a chance to visit with Jen and her hubby and beautiful baby.  My family and I really enjoyed getting to know them.  What wonderful, fun, and kind people!!! 

Here are a few pics from the evening:

That’s my hubby, me, and our two boys with Jen and her beautiful baby girl!  Can you believe Jen has had 5 children?  If I had five I think I would resemble a Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade Balloon.  She is teeny tiny and beautiful inside and out!

Here we are with hubby’s changed up for the pic.  Jen, her hubby, and baby girl with me and the boys.

This morning my oldest was talking about living where there is a lot of snow like Ms. Jen.  He said “Wow, they came all the way down here just to have dinner with us?”  I said “No, they came for a meeting.”  But that doesn’t surprise me that he thought that.  They were so nice and easy going that it was like when we meet up with all our friends.  To him, and me, it didn’t feel like people we had never met before! 

Hope we meet up again Mythbusterbeauty!

Make sure to check out her blog!  It’s terrific!  mythbusterbeauty

Have a “Friendly” Day!
