When Blogville Meets Real World

You know when bloggers meet we have to tell you all about it, right? It's because we're bloggers and we blog about this kind of stuff.

Well, as I mentioned, I had a little blogger meet up planned this week.

Mrs. B and I met a few years ago when our blogging and infertility paths crossed via the internet. We connected in many ways, but our MN roots also interwove our bond.

Then, in 2011, my family prayed the St. Andrew Christmas novena specifically for Mr. & Mrs. B. A few months later, pregnancy news was revealed and we joyfully celebrated and waited for their little Elizabeth to arrive. 

Fast forward to recently when Mrs. B became an Usborne Books consultant and emailed a few friends. I sent a quick reply letting her know that if she was willing to make the drive, I'd gladly host a show at my home. 
It was kind of my ploy to actually get to meet in person, but the book show would be great too.

With that, we've been planning on her and Elizabeth making the two hour drive, coming to play, having the book party and just plain old visiting. 

It couldn't have worked out any better!

Yes, IRL, Mrs. B is exactly as she comes off in her written blog: fun, a bit spunky, a good conversationalist, smiling, a faith filled woman with a generous heart and a wonderful mom.

Here we are, unedited:

The girls enjoyed the new playmate and she even stayed overnight, double bonus!

It came morning time and a couple of the girls were less than eager to sit still for photos.

And the cat next door kind of lured them together for this shot.

Again, Jonah is the only boy, but he doesn't mind it too much.

A very good visit indeed. Thanks Mrs. B and Elizabeth for visiting our humble abode!

It's always amazing to me how we all bond through a computer and our blogs. Friends of the heart whose lives are intertwined together through technology.

Now if we could only all live in some little blogging bubble so that we wouldn't have to wait so long to meet.

Happy Weekend Friends!


  1. I'm so happy for y'all!! It is so much fun to meet a bloggy friend in real life! And then to meet her little side kick, too. Bonus! Glad you had the time together :) Have a great weekend!

  2. Ahem. I'm your next bloggy meetup. Deal?

  3. fun! I am so happy for you both. And a bloggy bubble? I'm in!

  4. I love Mrs. B! I would stalk her if I lived closer to her! Now I just bug her! Lol poor girl! Lol

  5. Yay!! So fun to meet other Catholic women with so much in common! Great pictures of you and so fun for us to see your kiddos together!

    Maggie (MN mom)was thinking of coming up here...not sure when, but maybe you could come too? (Christine too)

    Is it a meet up if we already know each other?

    This is how Happymomonline and I met, we had lots more in common than the bloggies.

  6. We had so much fun! Is it crazy that I was thinking about having the books delivered to me so that I would have an excuse to come and visit again so I could drop them off? :)

    But sometime soon, we should get together again! Thank you so much for hosting us, we had a blast! Your kids are so amazing and I am so grateful to Reed for watching E during the party. God Bless!


You're so kind for dropping me a line!
