Blog Meet Up

I went to a blogger meet-up on Saturday in Cincinnati hosted by the lovelies Abby and Michelle.  Thank you both for a fun day!  We were greeted with a cute apple name tag and apple cookie lollipop.  Now I know why my Kinders get so excited about lollipops!

They hosted it at the ever-tasty Cheesecake Factory.  My friend, Hilary, came with me and we split some chocolate and caramel cheesecake- Oh-My-Gosh- I could have eaten the whole entire cake.  But, then I wouldn’t have been able to walk out the door..........

Hilary and I, and our new found friend Cathy hopped over to The Container Store... because we all know that store is teacher HEAVEN!  It was hard to exercise restraint with that store, but rest assured, I’ll be back for another visit!!

Such a fun day!  Thanks again, Michelle and Abby, for a fun afternoon!

Anyway, here are the amazing bloggers that came that day!  Be sure to check them out and leave them (and me!) some blogger-lovin’ comments!  (And don't forget to follow me while you are here!)

Whew- that was a LOT of people.  I think there were about 50 people there.  When I talked to Abby, she was expecting it to be a small, cozy get –together like TX or CA meet-ups.  It just looks like us mid-westerners are blog-crazy!!!
