A Really Good Blog Week.

Last week was probably one of the most exciting weeks for the me in terms of this 'ole blog. It all started off with my Packing Challenge post when Susanne left a simple comment:

this is going to sound bizarre (especially since i don't even know you.) but i think i saw you earlier in the day at the jcrew factory outlet in allen. was that you? if so, darn it. i should have said hello. if not, i'm so glad i didn't make a complete fool of myself!

to which I replied:

That is crazy! I was totally there! Wish you would have said hi! ( and you totally caught me re wearing the bright orange skirt! Kinda hard to hide that :)

Hope you're having a great day!

(and sorry to go crazy with the !!!!!!!)

I'm not gonna lie y'all, it was kinda fun knowing I was out and about and recognized!

On Thursday, I got to go have lunch and meet Amy, That Pink Girl! I've followed Amy's blog for quite a while {probably two years} and have loved her sweet spirit. Even before we actually really "knew" each other very well through our blogs, she was such a source of encouragement. {She actually sent me a pair of pj's before my heart surgery!} We had a great time at lunch and it was so fun to get to know her better.

I have to admit...I was nervous about the meeting! This was my first blog friend to meet IRL. While deep down I knew it would go well, there's still a fear of putting yourself out there. I'm happy that it was such a good experience. If you're not reading Amy's blog, add it to your list! {especially if you're a runner! she's amazing!}

And finally, on Thursday, I received news that I was invited to be a part of the BlogHer Ad Network! I have been trying to be more intentional over the past few months with my blog and am so thankful for this next step. So, if you click over to the blog {really, you should click over!} you'll now see some ads over on the right hand side. Just wanted to give y'all a heads up about that addition! {and a big hello to anyone who clicks over through BlogHer!}

And while this didn't happen last week, a couple weeks ago at Living Proof Live I had the opportunity to meet Big Mama.


She was oh so sweet to talk to me as I was babbling on about loving her blog and being so excited about meeting her. If you're not reading her, you're missing out! And if you do read her, please know she's a doll in real life. She definitely lives up to her Fashion Friday standards-  I wanted every piece of clothing she was wearing that day!

So that's what's been happing around the good 'ole blog. In unrelated news, I am now officially half way finished with my traveling, so hang tight with me about three more weeks and I should then be able to get back into somewhat of a normal posting schedule. I do have some random, shouldhavepostedseveralweeksago posts that you'll see pop up, so keep you're eyes open for those!

Hope you have a great Friday!
