I always love meeting bloggers, especially in person. The blogosphere is full of talented people and I like to think that the little community I am in is made up of amazing women that I'd love to be friends with in real life. Many of my blogging buds live on the other side of the country - or world - so our communication doesn't go past blog comments, tweets, or facebook interaction. The few times I get to meet up with these people, I get quite excited.
This week, Brittany, of LatteLoveMommy, flew into LA and I was dying to meet up with her! Along with three of her friends, and my pals, Amanda, and Kate of Nautical by Nature, we met up at Ketchup restaurant located on the famous Sunset Strip for dinner.
Side note: I shared a parking garage elevator ride with Jonathan Bennett, aka Aaron Samuels...the guy that Regina and Cady fight over in Mean Girls. That morning I also saw Tim Allen, yes Tim the Toolman Taylor!!! Should have asked him if he'd hook me up with JTT! ;)
The ladies were all so sweet, I only wish I'd gotten more time to talk with all of them! We mingled the best we could on a huge table with seven women as we sipped on martinis and nibbled on fries and ketchup (complete with five dipping sauces including chipotle, chocolate, and banana!).
This was my third time at Ketchup and of course I ordered the same thing I get each time: mac 'n cheese made with white truffle and crab (on left). YUM! This time I did try something new, the lobster bisque (on right)...not so good.
Here are the wonderful ladies. Thanks to Brittany, I got to meet two new bloggers, her friends!

I'd love to meet other SoCal bloggers. If anyone is interested let me know and maybe we can arrange something!
