My First Bloggy Meet Up

On Friday, I met up with Shannon from Two Dudes and a Diva for lunch. It was my first ever bloggy meet up and I was so nervous, however, once Shannon and I sat down and started to chat, I felt like we had been friends forever. I don't know if you remember this post, but Shannon and I pretty much have been friends forever, just never knew it. Our paths must have crossed so many times throughout our life, we just never officially met! Shannon and I went to the same college and our sorority houses shared the same building. I now live in the city that Shannon grew up in and she now lives in the same city that grew up in. Kismet? Absolutely!!!
Shannon and I met at Chick-Fil-A which is probably one of my new favorite places to eat lunch now that I have a baby. What a family friendly place!! Ours has a playground so it was perfect for our kids to play and get to know each other while Shannon and I chatted it up and got to know each other too. I had such a great time with Shannon and I know our kids did too. I am looking forward to our next get together which I am sure will involved another thing we having in common, shopping!
You will have to excuse the picture quality, they are from my cell phone.
Trying to get the girls to sit still and pose for a picture. That was next to impossible!
