Since this was my second blate, I was a lot less nervous. On the first one, I was so worried about what to wear and what to talk about and all of that "first date" nervousness that is blating. But this time, I was definitely more excited than nervous. Except I'm awkward so I thought everyone was going to hate me or something but I think it turned out alright. Also, I hate walking into restaurants and looking for people- it gives me anxiety. So when I walked up to the hostess and told her I was meeting some girls and she said "Okay, go look around!" I wanted to cry. But then I saw Kayli sitting all cute on the couch and I totally recognized her and then I felt better because I didn't look like a complete idiot. Ugh, I'm crazy, I know.
We met at a super cute restaurant in central Phoenix called The Yard. I've been there before and knew it would be perfect for the blate because it has such a fun atmosphere. BUT when I got there it was even better than I thought because they had a super cute lounge area with ping pong tables and couches and stuff, so it ended up being the perfect place for us to hang out!
After we sat around and chatted for a while, we had funny food. I got grilled cheese sliders (oops) and Carissa had a salad so we split them half and half. YUM. Seriously, if you're in Phoenix, go to The Yard. Once we ate and took pictures like good little bloggers, Kayli had to leave (boo) but Carissa, Kailey, Mo, and I went to the cutest little ice cream shop in all the land- Churn. The place is so cute, it has tons of novelties and the ice cream is homemade and delicious! So basically- with grilled cheese and ice cream, it was a bad day for my stomach. Yolo.
It was such a fun day and I'm so glad I made it down to meet them! Now they just have to get their butts to Tucson to visit! Like I said before, if you have the opportunity to meet local bloggers, you totally should. I've had nothing but great experiences meeting some awesome ladies, and I definitely recommend it! Also, if you're in AZ, let me know!
How was your weekend?
