wingin' my way.

(Little details of our meet up weekend.)

You know what's wild? Tomorrow morning, at the crack of 4am, I leave for the airport. On a trip where I will vacation with ten girls I don't know. Yes! I'm my way to our Always Bloggy in Philadelphia Meet Up

Shannon and I have had so much fun planning all the little details--in depth conversations about the exact hue of "raspberry" and solemnly swearing not to judge each other's constant outfit changes or other odd habits. In a way, meeting up is a strange experience--mostly due to nerves about the in person me. I'm so socially awkward! But in another way, it's not strange at all! A few of the girls I've known for three years--we've read each other's blogs through job changes, engagements, marriages and babies. I remember their birthdays, their anniversaries, funny anecdotes from their lives and the times I wish we could have chatted about all of it over a couple of margaritas. 

I cannot wait to go from calling all of them "my internet friends" to simply "my friends". I do believe that's officially done with a hug and a smile. But for tonight, I'm off to celebrate my mom's birthday...and then I'll burn the midnight oil cramming 16 days of clothing (for a 4 day trip) into a 24" suitcase.

In the meantime: Wear something pink. Do it. Then snap a photo and email it to me at wwrinserepeat@gmail.com. Look for your photo on Friday when I post the Pretty in Pink Round up, and know that $1.00 is headed to help fight breast cancer...just because you wore pink.

  6. I made a bunch of friends through email blogging over a decade ago (back then we called them e-zines) and some of them are the best friendships I have to this day! I hope you all have a super fun weekend and you transform those blog friendships into real ones that last a lifetime! :)

  9. Wow! Sooo looking forward to this, and especially that pin that says "Kate". And I am glad to know I am not the only one scrutinizing my closet right now. You only get one first impression. Unless you change outfits a few times, right?

  11. It brings a tear to my eye to see my name tag front and center when I probably won't be able to make it. You see, I have a hot date with a cutie named Hunter.

    Shann said something about stopping at my house on Monday. I hope you can. I was so excited to finally meet you!
