Making Friends

Many of you know that I’m new to this stay-at-home mom thing, and that one of the reasons I started my blog was to “meet” other like-minded women, who enjoyed design, home decor, and were similarly making their house into home. 

I’ve been really blessed to meet so many new friends over my computer screen, but recently, I had the pleasure of meeting in-person! one of my favorite blog authors, Cassie of Hi Sugarplum!   It can be a little intimidating to go on a “blind date”, but I’m so glad I did!  It was so fun to meet Cassie face-to-face.   We instantly clicked and talked for hours, shutting down the restaurant.   We chatted about family, work, our decor projects, blogging, hair (she does this awesome curl thing with hers!)- you know- normal girl stuff:)  Here’s a pic from our meeting (I’m on the left, Cassie’s on the right).  Isn’t she pretty?!

Too bad you can’t see the awesome necklace she was wearing in that photo.  One of the reasons I enjoy Hi Sugarplum! so much is because Cassie is witty and a bit sarcastic, but she is actually just a sweetheart with a great sense of humor in “real life”.  You can go here to see Cassie’s post about meeting me:)  And if you haven’t been to Hi Sugarplum, here’s just a few of my favorite posts:

Rescued Tray {She inspired me to do something similar over the weekend}

Guest Bathroom Makeover {Love the color, stripes, shower curtain, art and accessories}

Outfit Inspiration Posts {She does these weekly and they are so fun}

While we’re talking friends, I wanted to introduce you to another awesome blog I recently found, Name 5 Things.

Emily has a great sense of style and I’m loving what she’s done in her home.  Here’s a peek:

Living Room {Isn’t is serene and cozy looking?  I love the wall color, art, and table vignette- so classic}

image

Wallpapered Bookshelves {The pattern on the paper is so pretty and I really appreciate a well-styled bookcase}

image

Bedroom - Wallpaper Panels {This whole room is perfect.  The soothing wall color, molding and shutters, starburst mirror and mirrored table, bed and bedding.  Can I come over and take a nap?!}

And speaking of meeting friends, I’d like to meet YOU!  I just committed to going to Blissdom, although I haven’t quite figured out what I’m going to do with James since the conference is during the week (January 26-28, 2011 in Nashville, TN).

Are you going?  Pretty please!!

  6. After Cassie posted about you meeting the other day, I told her I was super jealous!! You are both just gorgeous inside and out. Thanks for sharing about Emily's blog...will check that out. Thinking about going to Blissdom...it's only a 4 hour drive for me.

  7. How fun to get to meet Emily! I'm definitely adding her blog to my reading list. I've been too chicken to meet any other bloggers in real life, and although I'd LOVE to go to a big blogger conference like Blissdom, it all sounds a bit overwhelming to me. But now you've got me thinking about it again. I've always thought Blissdom sounded amazing!

  8. I was not sure about how it would be to meet the people I "know" from blogging, but my experience in NYC proved it can be a great thing. As a result, I am also going to Nashville...can't wait to meet you!! Janell

  9. How fun!

    I have never met any Bloggers in 'Real Life', but I think it would tons of fun to meet some!

    Im jealous your going to the Blissdom. I have always been keen to the idea of going to one of those Blogger conferences but they never come anywhere near close to where I am located :(

  10. Aaaaah, Megan!! Thanks for the sweet words...I'll buy you a margarita anytime you want to blog about me! ;)

    We need to make sure our first date wasn't our last!

    Oh, and of course, in true Megan/Cassie always on the same wavelength form, I found Emily's blog last week too and love it!!??!! Get out of my head freak!

    And now I'm going to have to reconsider Blissdom. Afterall, Opryland Hotel is Sloan's spot of origin. Really.

Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment, I read every one! I try to answer questions in the comment section since many readers are "no reply" and so everyone can benefit from the response- so please check back. :)
