That one time I hung out some really awesome bloggers IRL

A few weeks ago we had our January Houston Blogger meetup! I love getting the chance to hang out with some of my favorite Houston bloggers (and meet new HTown girls!) I am SO blessed to be a part of an awesome group of woman bloggers, many of whom I consider very good friends of mine! There is NEVER a dull moment when i'm around these ladies! It's amazing the feeling of really connecting with someone without even meeting them in person. That's my favorite thing about blogging... The relationships you form with the people whose blogs you read. Plus, it's always good to attend a meetup and find new blogs to read!!!! And there are still a few bloggers out there that I can't wait to meet (I think I have a lot of trips that need to be planned since some of my favorites don't live in the Houston area. :( WAH!)

Thanks Meg for being a fantastic photographer! You roccckkk! (All pictures were taken stolen from her) ;)

Darby graciously agreed to host this months meetup in her brand spankin' new house. Thanks Whitney for organizing everything and for Bree for leading our bracelet craft (which by the way, I just noticed last night that my freaking dog CHEWED UP MY BRACELET. How dare she! Doesn't she know how long it freaking took me to wrap and then RE-WRAP that dang thing? Shame on her!) And of course thanks to Meg for being a badass photographer and takin' some smoking headshots of me! :)

Like I said, we made awesome bracelets as our craft (I like to consider them friendship badass blogger bracelets - hey, that's an alliteration!) 

We were like a herd of wild elephants makin' a mad dash to get the color of our choice. It was almost like  I was competing for a new TV on black friday!

Showing off her amazing bracelet & telling us that it's a breeze to make!
Listening intently... Like all good students do, right? HA!

I needed intense concentration after messing it up on round 1... whoops!
Showing off the goods
Northsidazzzz fooo lyf
Love these ladies
It almost looks like we're showing off our guns
Fabulous photog and fellow teacha

Dee Zee love! Love me some Delta Zeta sista's!

The girls being typical bloggers... The camera is everywhere. It's almost like the paparazzi! 

And here is the time that Meg made me look ridiculously good looking (I swear she works miracles with that lens!) 

Follow me on Instagram @ADayInTheLifeCait and you can see more of my awesomness 

Do you attend blogger meetups? What do you like best about meeting fellow bloggers IRL?


  1. All of the Houston meet ups make me so jealous I don't live there! I'm in the Oklahoma City area (well, Stillwater at OSU) and I have yet to find any local bloggers!! So sad :(
