But I started the visit a little earlier than Rick's brothers and their wives because I had an important mission -- Lunch!
So it was with great joy that when Stacey of Poofing the Pillows picked me up at our hotel I knew I was in for a few delightful hours of Blogger Heaven!
My dining companions were three bloggers I'd "known" for a little over a year -- Stacey, Jemma (of At Home with Jemma) and Laura from Decor to Adore.
And joining us were Eilis of My Heart Lives Here and Carol of Bluesky Kitchen.

For those of you who have met your blog friends, you know what I will say. Every minute lived up to expectations. No, surpassed them. We couldn't stop talking and of course the discussion turned to blogging. The time seemed to fly by and soon, like Cinderella, I was whisked back to real life and the festivities at hand (after a stop at Home Goods, of course!).
More on the parties and gatherings to come but I just want to thank this great group of women who drove great lengths to meet me. (Dallas isn't like Lansing where you can get from the farthest suburb on either end to the other in twenty minutes -- and the traffic isn't like here, either!). It was a glorious time.
Please do skip over and check out their blogs. If you haven't visited before you may find you never want to leave!
