After having two steps in the grave on Wednesday from a stomach bug, I came back to life by Friday morning and had such a great weekend!!
It began with a dinner with some of my favorite people, most of whom I've only known for a few months, but I'd say I am really close with all of them! I was looking forward to this dinner, and I knew it was going to be a super fun get together. I'm so glad I was healed and not sick the night we had plans!
Let me share how we all know eachother...
Jenn and I were roomies in our Sorority house back in the good 'ol days at TCU, and we are both on Twitter.
I met Angie through a blog visit, so to speak, followed by conversation on Twitter. Through our various exchanges we realized we both lived in the area.
Same story goes for Britni. We met on Twitter as well!
(bad picture, but gives you the idea right?? ha!)
So all of us gals live in the metroplex, except for Sarah.
Sarah and I met on Twitter as well! She was in town visiting family, and I am SO GLAD she has family nearby so that she will visit again and hopefully often:)
Do you see a recurring theme?
YOU ARE SO SMART!!
It's funny because I would never have thought Twitter would have gained me such cool friendships, but I guess Twitter is all about conversation. And sometimes great conversation leads to great friendships!
I was warned that Twitter can be a bit like high school,
and I can act a bit high school myself (just look at the evidence).
Although I have seen the high school side of it at times, I plan to steer clear from the drama. My experience thus far has been a great way to get advice and tips on everything under the sun, gab about silly shows such as Teen Mom and The Bachelor, and best of all meet some unexpected real life friendships.
(It's also been such fantastice *free* advertisement for SheShe Made!)
So yeah, we met at 7:00, had fajitas and margaritas, and just talked and giggled for 5 hours! We didn't leave the restaurant until our poor waitress asked us to get up so she could go home. We felt bad about that for sure! It's just we couldn't ever get to a stopping point in our conversations. Tweeting for a while now, we all had tons to talk about, catch up on, and really, Twitter just gave us all a very common groud.
I adore these girls and look forward to many more get togethers!!
Next time, we plan on having a slumber party so we don't get kicked of an establishment for overstaying our welcome past 5 hours! Good times.
