SoCal blogger meetup & giveaway winner!

Ok so I'm finally posting about the blogger meetup! I'm such a slacker blogger I swear! Always behind!

anywho, so obviously I should be the one person who always has their camera with them, but no, not me. I always seem to forget it when it's most important, always!

(I blame being scatter-brained, or the fact that it didn't fit in my purse...also, this is my excuse for being the last one to blog about it...ya...that's it! ;)

So I had to snag all of the forthcoming pics from the photographer for the event Karina Irene, except for the last one of me and Stephanie, that I snagged from Mandey (Thanks Mandey!)

Mandy also gave everyone some super cute earrings in the goody bags and I love mine! Will post about those later!

So I guess pics first and then i'll talk about it? Ya? ...that's what I thought

So clearly it was so much fun and I, for one, cannot wait for the next one!

The event was hosted by Tammy, Olivia, Stephanie, and Kelsey.  I seriously love all four of these ladies to pieces! Such dolls! And since they're all so amazing they obviously put on a terrific event! 

It was at Sip by Flavor Del Mar which was gorgeous and so cool! And the little appetizers they provided for us were delicious! I didn't have any of the wine but they had a ton so if you're in the San Diego area and love wine go here! I'm so glad I discovered this place because I love Del Mar! We take Lulu to the doggie beach there all the time, Stephanie and I have met up there twice for lunch, and B and I even went on our honeymoon there! (that's how we discovered it!) It's seriously the cutest little town and I want to live there so badly one day!

Anyway, back to the meetup. We played blogger bingo which was an awesome way to get to know and meet everyone! We also played that baby shower game where you can't say "baby" but this time it was "blog" or "blogger". I always fail miserably at that game cause I don't pay attention at all an this was no exception! (I am, however, amazing at the melted candy poop game...but that's another story)

We had champagne and I had my first ever sprinkles cupcake (vanilla fyi) and it was obviously delicious! 

But the best part is all the lovely ladies I got to meet! A couple I "knew" before but I was nice to finally meet them in person as well as meet tons of new girls whose blogs I'm now obsessed with! And it was so cool to have stuff in common with nearly every person I talked to (besides blogging obviously!)

Anyway It was seriously so much fun! If there's ever a blog meetup in your area you should definitely go! (or maybe start your own!) and if you're in southern CA you should for sure come to the next one!

Be sure to go here to check out all of my new bloggy friends' posts about the event!

YAYYY!! As I tweeted to you earlier, I'm buying vanilla ice cream in preparation for the carmel/chocolatey goodness. yummm.

I'm so jealous of this SoCal event! I feel like I should have been there haha. Maybe sometime in the future.. I love downtown Del Mar. It has the cutest library!
