Wanna know how it went @ The Blogger Meet & Greet

I’mmmmm back!
Okay… I am sorry I went all MIA on your guys all weekend long…
A few family things came up, nothing major…
Just life takes presence over online world sometimes….

However…. I am here to report on the 1st Annual Blogger Meet & Greet!!!!!!!

Let me start off with OMFG….. We had a blast!!!!!!!!
Things like this should really be illegal!

Thought I should get that out the way!

The bloggers that met up are: Courtney from Paranormal Fantasies,
Patti from Book Addict, Hannah from Taunt Society,
Crystal (not sure if she has one, sorry Crystal, I forgot to ask), and me!
These ladies are hilarious!!!
I can not remember when I laughed so much in one day – hell in one afternoon.

We all met up at Books-A-Million in Lake Charles, LA for around 10:30ish. I was the first one there. Which means I got to walk around and find me some goodies to bring home with me (and no they were no cute guys to try to take home… so I had to settle for a few cover models, lol).
As I was looking at the *cough* little hidden section of erotic books (yea, they took the hot and steamy books that normally just get grouped with Romance and put the way out in BFE **bon-fuck-Egypt) I noticed that a woman passed me looking very much like Hell Kat from Paranormal Fantasies….. So, I pulled out my phone to text her – what… I am not looking like a stalker, going up to a complete strange and giving her a hug and then introducing myself only to find out that is NOT her…. What and get shot, I dont think so!…. Anyway…. as luck would have it… It was here and her friend!! Yayay for me!

Then after we browsed for a little while.. I began to wonder if Patti had showed up and sneaked in… realizing we never exchanged numbers… Yeah, you guessed it. I had to become the stalker person and “check” everyone out to see if that was her! Well, as luck would have it… when I saw her and she saw me… yayay it was instance success! Then Hannah showed up… And I figured it was Hannah cuz she was talking to Patti!

So the gang was all there!!!! We all made a dash to the java place and got our favorite drinks and went settle down! We had a blast getting to really know one another. I simply cannot wait to do it again… Who says we have to wait a year! Screw that!

Our personalities meshed so well together. We all got along and laughed our asses off. Conversation was all over the place… it was not solely on books or what we read or our blogs…. it was genuinely a very good “girl” time!

We sat and talked until our tummies started growling at us to fed them… Yeah, we sat and talked and hung out for that long!! Hannah was the brave one that went to venture to find us a place to eat… How you might ask… She went up to one of the workers and told them they better tell us the best place for grub or she would beat them up… No I am just joking about that last part… Hold on… Well… Maybe that was me.. Cuz we were hungry, lol!!! Anyway… we all gave credit to the worker at BAM cuz she directed us to one of the best po-boy places we experienced!

I am sorry to say that I forgot to get the pictures of BAM and us in there… and drinking our coffees and all…. Really, I am. But here is one of all of us at Darrell’s (the poboy restaurant)!

And this is what I walked away from Books-A-Million… And oh yeah… they are freaking hot books! I justified it… I have not bought books in a while… So, treat to me!!!!!!!!!!

And then Patti… being the doll she is… Surprised us with some sway items that we got to choose from…. And this is what I got…..

Well, you see that candle in the picture up there…. Patti bought that for me. That was my present!!!! She is awesome! She surely did not have to do that!!!! This is my candle!

Ladies, I had a blast… and canNOT wait to do this again!!!!!!
Hell, it’s only 3 hr drive!!!!
What looks good for you!!!!
It was awesome.
I wish we (the blogging community that we chat with) all lived close enough to all meet up…
Oh man, what an experience that would be for the poor place we picked, lmbo!!!!!
But seriously, this was an awesome thing to do and I am glad that Courtney and I got together on this!!!
IT was FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC AWESOME!!!!
And next time… I am spending the night Patti and Hannah -> so make room!!!!!!!

Next time, I will take more pictures… I promise!
