It Was the Best of Times!

It's hard to believe that it was only one week ago tonight that I was on the West Coast and meeting two of my favorite bloggers at my favorite Mexican restaurant but that's exactly what it was. As cold and rainy as it is here in Connecticut tonight, I find myself wishing I was right back there not just for the warmer weather but for the fantastic company that I found myself amongst when I got to meet Sandee from Comedy Plus and Katherine of Wading Through My Stream of Consciousness.

I had posted a few pictures last week of our meeting but hoped to have more once our personal photographer/videographer (Sandee's husband Zane) had a chance to forward them to us. He has now done so and now I get to share a bit more of the night with you. Bear in mind while looking at these pictures that we got to the restaurant while the sun was shining but it was fully dark by the time we called it an evening. All told we spent almost four hours together but it hardly seemed like one!



In addition to the slideshow, I've got a video clip that I thought I would share with you that you might find amusing as - what do bloggers talk about when they get together? - blogging of course! Unfortunately I was sitting right next to Zane so my voice (which I hate!) is the loudest but I think you can hear everyone else, too.


I had an absolutely fantastic evening with Sandee and Zane, Katherine and The Teamster, and - of course my good friend and sidekick, Cyndi. The food was good, the margarita was great (and not tiny!), and the chance to meet two people in person that I've come to know through our adventures in blogging was the best part.

I have met so many wonderful people since I started this blog and my life has been enriched by all of you no matter whether I've met you in person or only virtually and I want to take this time to thank you all for being a part of my life - you're the best!

  1. I COULD JUST KICK MY OWN BIG, FAT BUTT!!! Darn it! I'm so totally jealous but glad you all had such a wonderful time. I went back to the very beginning so I caught your flight out here and I agree. Lake Tahoe is absolutely divine! I've been lucky enough to take several trips there and love it. God's country, for sure.
    I loved seeing all of the photos - everyone looks wonderful and the food - love those chili rellenos!
    And you can bet your sweet bippy, next time - and there has to be one - I'll be there, too!!!
    Love you,
    ~~~Blessings~~~

  11. What a trip! It seems that as these great trips do seem to end too quickly. Obviously, the best of times do seem to fly, and the worst do not. You had one of the best of times.
