Blogging Meets Real Life

I did something last week that I never thought I was going to do.

I met a blog friend. Sara from Running with the Law is a fellow Billiken so I knew we’d get along famously. We met for drinks after work – her from her law job and me from a crazy day of events.

I’m not quite sure what I expected but having drinks with Sara was the highlight of my week. I thought we’d have nothing to talk about, that it would get awkward but it absolutely didn’t! We chatted for a while and then she had to run home to say goodnight to her lovely little man, Mac. Seriously, how did she even steal a few minutes away from this little guy to hang out with me?

My first blog friend meet up went great, so here’s hoping to more of the same! Sara and I would love to get together with the husbands sometime – of course, we’re going to have to wait until AFTER the bar exam at the end of the month. That’s taking up quite a bit of Husband’s time, for some reason! Hehe.

In fact, I just bought tickets for the boy band concert in June. Me, NKOTB, 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men – me and Sonya from A Day in the Life are gonna rock out in section 303 in the nosebleeds! I cannot WAIT to see this concert and meeting her for the first time to watch it is going to be even better.

I started this blog to connect with people. Even though I haven’t been able to update as much as I would like, I love that I have been able to take the online connection into the real world with friends like Sara and Sonya. It’s like we’ve known each other for years, because I’ve been reading their blogs almost daily for that long.

What a neat thing this internet is.


  1. Darling, meeting you was SO awesome! What a fun night! Also, can I just say I'm obsessed with your voice. I could listen to you for hours! I love that we had so much to talk about and catch up on. I wish I didn't have to rush home. Let's definitely do it again SOON!

  2. Happy to hear you had fun! I'm excited for the concert and glad we finally get the chance to meet!
