H-Town Blogger Meet-up!

On Sunday, July 8th I had the amazing privilege of meeting up with a wonderful group of Houston bloggers! A few days before the meet-up, I stumbled across the H-Town Blog, which is a networking group of lady bloggers in the Houston area who have organized meet-up's around the city every month!

I was able to carpool with two wonderful ladies, Lindsay who blogs over at Trial By Sapphire and Whitney who blogs over at The Observant Turtle. I was a little nervous for the meet-up because I was "the new kid" and everyone knows how nerve wrecking it is to meet a whole new group of girls. But, I was pleasantly surprised by how amazing all the women were! They embraced me with open arms and I felt completely at ease! Everyone was so friendly and sweet!

Speaking of sweet, the meet-up was at a place called Sugarbaby's Cupcake Boutique! (My hubby was SO jealous because we both LOVE cupcakes!) The place was absolutely GORGEOUS! Sugarbaby's opened in 2007 and was the first Houston bakery to specialize in cupcakes! They also make all of their delicious cupcakes by scratch every day!

All of the pictures from Sugarbaby's were taken by Darby who blogs over at Life with the Hawleys. Thank you Darby for allowing me to use your fabulous pictures! You rock! 


I definitely need one of those chandeliers for my house! 




How cute are those mini cupcakes? We all got three of the cupcakes (Chocolate, Vanilla and Red Velvet). They were SO delicious! I probably could have eaten the whole tray! Of course I was able to take a few of those mini's home for the hubby who gobbled them up! (I wish I would have been smart enough to buy some more... But hey, that's just another reason to go back!!!!!!!!!) If you live in the Houston area (even if you DON'T!) you need to pay Sugarbaby's a visit! I promise you won't be disappointed and you can thank me later! :)


I had a WONDERFUL time with all the ladies and I am SOO glad that I stumbled across the H-Town blog! I am excited to continue forming friendships with a lot of the women and getting to know them better through their blogs and of course, I can't wait for the AUGUST MEET-UP!!!


Lori, who blogs over at made by lori created these super cute bookmarks for all the ladies at the meet-up! Everyone knows that I am a READING teacher, so of course I went crazy over these! I can't wait to use this bookmark in my classroom come August! Check out her Etsy site, Made by Lori to see the rest of her amazing things! And if you are a teacher, you REALLY need to visit her site and get yourself a bookmark!!!!!
