I Went on a Date with a Girl

Exactly a week ago, I went on a blate (blog date) with Brianne.
She blogs over here, go check her out. 
 (Fair warning very cute statement necklaces, leopard, and glitter will be everywhere, consider yourself warned, one of the many reasons I knew I liked her in real life.)

It was the first blogger I was going to meet in real life, 
and it FREAKED me OUT!!!
As a random side note, this is not what I wore, but it's a cute outfit, so I knew I needed to share it!!

Texting with someone I never met, meeting for the first time;
I felt like I was actually online dating (even though I never have).
BUT in my heart, I knew we'd get along, I mean if blog was ANYTHING like she was,
we'd be as close to close friends as any two gals can get.
So she arrived first, and I walked up in my (feeling like a monster in my wedges) gave her a hug and then immediately ran to the restroom to avoid peeing myself.

Then I came back sat down and talked to an an awesome blogger I just met two seconds ago old friend, for HOURS!!!!
And this here right here ladies, reaffirms why I blog. For friends like this, for a support group, for learning new things, and teaching others, for fun, for laughter, for honesty, for comedic relief from real life, for documenting my life, and for something bigger than myself.

If you don't remember, I almost quit a few weeks ago, and sometimes feel torn about what to write, say, and share, but I now know for sure that this blogging this is REAL.  I know that the ladies of the blogs I follow are just what their blogs are (which in my heart I knew), but it's AWESOME

Necklace//J Crew via eBay
Watch//Michael Kors
I can't wait to hang out with her again.  I had so much fun, and know she'll be in my life for a while.
Also much to my relief, she said I was just like my blog looked and sounded.
And when she said that, I just took a big sigh and thought to myself, "'ve done there did it..."
It made me smile.

Thanks for such an awesome blate Brianne, I'm excited for our next adventure!

Have you been on a blate? 
How'd it go???
I'd love to hear all about it!!


  1. you are just catfishing me. whatever.

  2. I have been on a few blates (and even had Kait from Gridiron Lipstick stay the weekend with us and it was the best weekend ever) and they have all been awesome! I actually have a lunch one today! I am always amazed at the connection I have with bloggers online and in real life, its so fun!

  3. Loooooooove your outfit, and I'm glad you had fun on your blate! I've been on a few, and they've all been awesome.

  4. Give me your whole entire outfit! Now. Cause it's the cutest ever!! And this post is amazing. I couldn't agree more and can't wait for more bliend adventures with you. You're awesome my friend :)

  5. I did a "blate" just a couple weeks ago with Maya at Charmingly Styled and Sara at You.And.Me.Are.We. We had sushi, it was my first time meeting them and eating sushi! All around a great time. :)

  6. Blates are the absolute best! But I always get nervous and feel like the awkward girl beforehand. Hehe... because, seriously... I'm awkward.

    But anyway, I met Whitney and Lisette! Awesomeness!

  7. The only person I've blated (that's now a word) is someone I already knew before blogging, so I guess it really doesn't count. I am DYING to meet so many bloggers but Alabama is pretty boring and there aren't many in my area :(.

  8. Thanks for posting this outfit!! I've always wondered if its silly of me to wear a tank under my shirts that open in the back like that (I only have 2, but still). I'm just not comfortable without the tank! Haha


Your Thoughts Are Appreciated!!!
