Just blate it out

Note to self: Photo challenges are boring!!

I think I heard crickets all day yesterday. But that is A-Okay because today its all about my ever so awesome double blate. The highly anticipated..{by like 2 of you} story is finally here.

::deep sigh of relief::
I can’t even tell you how much I wanted to meet with Angie. We talked and plotted it out for the longest time, dreaming of the day we’d be able to meet up. While G-man was in Y Country in January, he told me to look into another island to visit when I came out. Of course my first thought was Maui.
1. because we still hadn’t been and I was dying to see it, and
2. because obviously Angie was there!

I immediately emailed Angie for all the details on Maui so I could make it extra glamorous for G-man. We were so excited! (Angie and me, that is) And then my Dad had the heart attack and everything was up in the air. Instead of me flying to HI, G-man was about to fly to CA to be with me, but Dad got better, and away I went.

{I realize that sounds rather flippant but I assure you, it was not}

As you know, we booked the trip and within 4 hours were on a plane heading to Maui and I was thrilled to know I’d see Angie soon.

If you don’t know her, she’s the sweetest kindest person you’ll ever meet. And so darn cute, to boot.

On Friday night, we hopped in the car and our driver {yes! we had a driver} took us to the restaurant where we all were going to meet up. G-man was nervous. Seeing how he doesn’t blog, doesn’t go on blogger dates and is really rather shy, he was a little uncertain about it all and being included. But I just kept reassuring him as best I could. ‘Its Angie! Everything will be okay!!’

We had such a great dinner. The guys talked while us girls talked and it was so nice getting to know Angie personally. She’s definitely someone to get to know. And truth be told, Angie is the only blogger that has seen G-man’s face. She felt honored. haha

I think the next time we get together, we should shoot for a quiet place where I won’t have to talk above music because apparently, I’m not good at the ‘quiet voice’ and I’m sure the whole restaurant didn’t want to hear me talk about prison and inmates. what really? people don’t want to hear about that stuff?? **batting eyelashes* *whoopsee**

Thanks so much to Angie and Phil for taking time out of their day and driving all the way over to us to have dinner. You both are the best.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!! What’s there to do now that football is OFFICIALLY over (praise the Lord) *cough* did I just say that?? *cough cough*

Angie blogged about our blate too, if you wanted to see her side of it.
Happy Friday!

Pin It Now!

How FUN! And, are T and I going to have to fight for our special ranking of "bloggers who have seen G-mans face"?? You know, because we have and it's such a special honor and all. ;)

That definitely looks like fun to me! LOL at everybody in the restaurant overhearing you talking about prison, though. Did you notice anyone giving you funny looks? :P

Laura Elizabeth said...

Haha, I was one of the two people that was excited about this post. *sigh* you guys are like two of my fave bloggers so I feel like I get to live vicariously through you guys if you get to meet up!

Also, photo challenges are not boring at all! I am doing the Feb photo challenge too. I would LOVE to be your friend on instagram, I don't have too many friends on there. My name on there is Skaramouche and I'm doing the Feb photo challenge.

Sounds like you had a great time with Angie when you were there. I hope that when I'm there in April that we will get the chance to meet up. When we were there lat January things just didn't work out and we weren't able to meet.
