Bloggers in the 'Bu

Happy Monday! I'm in a strangely happy mood for it being a Monday. Maybe because I had a great weekend? We'll go with that! 

Saturday I had the pleasure of meeting up with two of my blogging turned in real life friends, Kate of Nautical By Nature and Meg of Henning Love! And if that weren't epic enough I got to meet Lauren of Wayferers and Worksheets who is awesome! 

Lauren, Meg, me, and Kate at the Getty Villa!


Obligatory blog pose ;)


The three of us had a blast together and were meshing like lifelong friends pretty quickly. We first grabbed some lunch at Duke's, a restaurant right on top of the water in Malibu, then headed over to the Getty Villa down the road. The Getty Villa is a museum filled with Greek and Roman artifacts with amazing gardens (pictured below) and views. Naturally we spent a majority of the time outside gabbing and during that we did get in on a free art project the museum was offering - mummy making! Yup, the four of us made mini paper mache mummies and it was so fun!

I can't wait til we all hang out again! Good thing Kate and I have our weekly Pretty Little Liars nights so I can get my blogger fix in each week :)

Can we talk about how gorgeous those flowers are!??? And is it ever nerve wracking to meet up with bloggers that you hadn't met before? I've never done it and think it would give me some major butterflies!

I always love seeing other bloggers get together! I especially love when they turn into "real life" friends :) It always confirms that these connections we make with each other are truly special! You always have the cutest outfits and accessories! I love that you girls took part in the free art project :) It's been ages since I've done paper mache! How fun!

Brit @ Confessions of a PinAholic said...

Wow, what a beautiful place! I hope I get to meet some of my new blogger friends soon! It's always great to make lasting relationships. I feel like I know some bloggers better than my friends because we pour our hearts and souls into what we do!
