Arooji's Blogger Get Together

Last night we had a Charlotte blogger get together at Arooji's wine bar in the Southpark area.  Some of us had met many times before, others were very new to Charlotte.  It was the perfect mix!

Okay I'm going to attempt to list everyone's name and their blog will be linked to that. 

Front row sorority squaters L to R - Michelle, Christina, Sarah, Dee

Back row L to R - Katie, April, Me, Kate, Sara, Jordan, Maran, Lulu

Now I just need to add the rest of y'all to my blog roll which I will do today!

Anyway, we had a grand time sipping on wine and having the risotto that came with the 3 wine tastings for $14.95.  Bargain. 

We went around the table and introduced ourselves, where we grew up, what our blog was, what we do for a living and a favorite blog that wasn't represented last night.  It was fun getting to know everyone better! 

It continues to amaze me how blogging has become such a great thing.  I've been so fortunate to always have great girlfriends in my life and I've only gained lots more from blogging.  These girls are classy, genuine and we are all normal (at least I think I mostly am!).  ...like we would have been friends in college type girls.  Yall know what I'm talking about!
We were all soooo loud in this small restaurant, it was fantastic haha!  We might have overwhelmed the two waiters!

Anyway, thank you again to April for organizing!  And as we talked about, let's do it again soon!

It was such a blast spending the evening with you ladies, and I cannot wait to do it again! I am a loud person in general, but we're just those people...when we get excited about things, we talk louder and louder! I think it just means we have personality. ;) Hope you have a great rest of the week!

I am always so jealous of your amazing blog meetups! I wish there were more bloggers in my city. I guess I just need to come visit you sometime soon! Now I have so many new blogs to add to my Reader!
