steppin' out to a bloggy GNO

Saturday was super busy for me! Cleaning the house, trip to Target, photo sessions, and a pretty freakin' awesome girls night out with some of the blogosphere's prettiest, sweetest bloggers!


The evening started at Earl's in downtown Bellevue for happy hour. I think we might have been the oldest group of girls there, we felt pretty out of place in our conservative dresses and jeans. As opposed to the rest of the crowd wearing mini skirts. But whatev, we're Mama's.

After dinner, we wandered the streets taking each other's stepping out photos (as seen in the photo above). We also asked a total stranger on the street to take a group picture... and then... we may or may not have jumped up and down at the same time like giddy little school girls. Just for the heck of it :)

From left to right:
Andrea, me, Mandy, Chelsey, Tessa, Amanda, Melissa
{ this is the most awkward of the photos... the landing. i kinda look like i'm about to squat on the toilet }

After we were done frolicking around the streets of Bellevue, Fiona joined the party, and we ended up at Rock Bottom for MORE food. There was a lot of talk about pregnancy, kids, husbands, vacations, disneyland, rhinos (don't ask), the royal wedding, photography, baby tantrums, and of course blogging. And more blogging. That's what we do.

I pretty much laughed the entire night and am so thankful to know these ladies!! I've said it a million times, but the blog world is such an incredible place to be! Can't wait for more nights like these this summer!

I'd love a vote today!!  :)

Dirt On The Rocks said...

I love your outfit since I'm a big fan of cardigans. I think any outfit will look great with a simple cardigan.

Also this is my type of weekend I'd love. Enjoying a day and evening of just shooting and having great conversations with women and friends you can definitely relate to as far as motherhood is concerned. I don't really have that here and read this from my end :)
