Home friends When Your Blogger Friends Become Girlfriends

IMG_9452

 

Girl time is a necessity. Similar to eating and showering–time spent with girlfriends is just mandatory. It slows down the crazy and pauses all the madness for shared giggles and understanding nods. The men are wonderful,  really they are, but the girls…they keep us going.

So when my girls KimCass and Patty all agreed to dinner,  I was so excited! We went to Seraphina, a fun Italian Restaurant on the upper west side. I had never been so I ate very lightly earlier in the day to compensate for the good eating I’d be doing later.

After we all got there and the exchange of hugs and kisses were given, we finally got to ordering. We got bruschetta as an appetizer… I haven’t had bruschetta in forever and this was exceptional!

We pretty much talked about everything,  including the potential blogging conferences we will be attending, kids,  husbands, news–you name it!!

Finally our entrees were ready!

You guys already know I am a steak and potatoes kind of gal so I had some of that. 🙂

I had such a good time with these girls. I just adore them!  It was so nice to see them outside of a blogging event, just us,  hanging out and having fun.

We even put a potential special project in the works that I am crazy excited about-so send us positive vibes so that we can make it happen!

When is the last time you had girl time??

Ahh, girl time. The best!! I had a good night out with a friend recently. We gossiped for hours. I do find that my blogging friends have become “friends” too. Even though we’re all scattered geographically, I still might be talking about one of you to my husband or something and I’ll say, “Oh! My friend just wrote about that!” Not. “Oh, I read that on a blog!”
He must think I’m nuts.
I wish I could do something like this soon! Maybe Michelle will hang out with me again.

Nellie November 16, 2013 - 1:31 pm

LOL Tamara! I totally do the same thing, to the point where my hubby asks, a blog friend or a real friend–of course I tell him BOTH!

Okay Nellie, this is food porn! The food looks scrumptious! I’m all about girl time! Got together with my GGs (godly girlfriends) for the birthday of one of them in early October. We sure don’t do that enough, but when we do, we make it happen!
