A real life Meet-n-Greet!

By the time you read this I will probably be on my way, already there or on my way back from meeting some bloggers in-real-life! I couldn’t be more excited if you told me that the bags and bags 2 pieces of Halloween candy I ate yesterday were calorie free!

I know that I am meeting Meredith (Like Merchant Ships) and Alli (Mrs. Fussypants) but I don’t have a list of the rest of the crew, so that part is a surprise. I love both of their blogs and can’t wait to meet them. Meredith makes a lover-ly home look so easy to do and Alli writes the most original posts EV-AH!

When I told my husband, he was a bit concerned that I was going to meet someone I met through the computer, ’cause we all know that there are crazy people lurking out there. But I told him it was a risk I needed to take, because even if Meredith is crazy like that (which she ISN’T) I’ve seen enough photos of her lovely home to know that I have to go there and see it for myself – crazy lady or not! On top of it, crazy people that want to harm you, don’t take the time to put lemons and apples and cranberries in their frozen punch rings. (okay, maybe that weird guy in Silence of the Lambs would…)

Any-who, that’s where I’ll be. Meetin’ and greetin’. And I’m sure there’ll be lots of laughin’ too!

Hopefully, I’ll be back this afternoon to post pictures. Assuming my husband was wrong!

*UPDATED* to say that we are home; had a LOVELY time! My camera wasn’t working properly, so I only have a few photos to post. Alli will be emailing me some later and I’ll post then.

    Have fun, you lucky girl!
    (and I think all the internet pscyhos are too busy pretending to be 14 year olds on my space, so I don’t worry about that!)

    How exciting. I always think it is interesting to meet people IRL bc they never seem to look like what I thought they would look like. Interesting.

    You are going to have so much fun! The blogger’s I have met are some of my best friends now!

    ok, Karla, I have been on to see if you have posted anything yet. We are anxious to hear, especially since we belong to the same family and were like Sean at first, concerned. After all, we love you very much. Anyway, I am hoping you are having a great time! Hurry and post!!

  12. http://Susanne says

    How fun. I can hardly wait for the stories and pics.

    It was great meeting you! And I must say I thought the whole spread (including the fruit frozen in the yummy punch ring) was lovely! So reassure your husband that while we might all be a little nutty we are mostly harmless.

    You always make me smile, Karla. Honestly, I know when I come over here, your sense of humor and your whole kind of funny take on everything is just going to make me smile.

    Glad you’re home. Glad you had a great time. Sorry the camera was the pits. And glad you survived the blogger-nappers. LOL

    It was lovely to meet you! You looked so beautiful and so did your little baby.

    If I wasn’t such a slacker!

    I love the gracious and droll tone of your blog! Very nicely done! I checked you out from Shaleey’s Diner. I liked your comments and just went from there.

    I will be a repeat customer for sure!

    Congrats that you got to meet fellow bloggers IRL…way cool! & you survived and everything!
