Blogger get together

Hi! As I stated last night, I am back to blogging after WINNING a bet with my man and taking 7+ days away from it. I wanted to spice up my blog, so I made a few changes, but overall I think it will always be a work in progress!
 
I recently purchased a Polar Heart Rate Monitor Watch. Since it was my first one, and I don't know much about them yet I settled on this one:
 
I will let you know how I like it once I use it for a few weeks!
 
I'm excited to tell you about my night last night!
 
As I have said before I am a Pittsburgh Blogger (HOLLA!) so I knew I would run into other Pittsburgh Bloggers sooner or later. This is one of the BEST cities around - sorry if you aren't from here! ;-) I'm not sure who found who, who started following who, but I became blogging friends with Katie and Lex.  
 
I always thought about eventually meeting up with other bloggers but we live in a crazy ass world, and it's hard to trust anyone these days. It's sad!
 
 I got an email in the beginning of February:
 
I'm not going to lie, I was nervous! Nothing against either one of them- I love their blogs but like I said we live in a crazy ass world. So we decided to meet last night and I am glad we did!
 
Although we had to battle Pittsburgh Penguin Fans & traffic (we didn't realize our original destination was going to be packed with Pens Fans for the game) we finally met up in a freezing cold parking lot.
 
We enjoyed dinner - chatted - and had lots of laughs. It was a great time and I am glad I went.

 
I borrowed this pic from Katie, don't sue me! haha
 
By the time I picked up my daughter, she was ready for bed, and passed out in the car on the way home.

She loves animal print - or maybe I do.....

 

I stole some cuddles with my thumb sucking baby girl, and put her to bed.

Looks like a blast!! Glad you went and had fun. I totally get you about the crazies out there! It makes things like this very nerve racking.
And I believe a little girl has to have some sort of animal print ;)

I'm so glad you won your bed with the Man. Your going to love your HR Monitor!!! I totally should have blogged about meeting up for today's post but non-scale victory got in the way! Gah!

HR Monitors are the best. It is a great way to really track your workouts. I was amazed at the motivation it gave me.

Oh how fun! I'm sad I live so far away from most of all the other women that tend to be meeting up in bloggy World. :)

I know meeting people from the internet nowadays you can create some crazy situations in your mind! That's why I think it is best to always schedule something in public. . . maybe a freezing parking lot in the snow isn't the ideal place lol, but I'm so glad we met! I really enjoyed my night with you and Lex and hope we can do it again soon!

P.S. your daughter is so adorable!!!
