While I was in Atlanta for market, I ended up having a blogger meet-up. An unplanned one. When I saw on Facebook that Christy, of Charleston Girl, was staying in the very same hotel that I was in ATL, I commented on the picture saying I was there too. That night I was sitting at the hotel bar enjoying a rather large plate of nachos by myself when I saw that the conference going on in the large ballroom was letting out. I then see a blonde girl, rocking a Lilly shirt walk out and instantly knew who she was. It was Christy. (If you've ever been on her blog, you know how much she loves Lilly) She happened to walk over near my table and I flagged her down. She knew exactly who I was as well and sat down and ordered some food. When a few guys at the bar tried to chat us up, we knew they would be super intrigued/confused when we said "we met through our blogs." and indeed, they were. We got the "you met online!!" comment. We've been friends on Facebook for over a year and even though I have been to Charleston several times, we hadn't met there, so we thought it was crazy that, of all the hotels in Atlanta, we were staying in the same one. We proceeded to talk about all things nautical, fashion, our jobs, and lots of other things for about 3 hours. We had a great time and I am so glad we ran into eachother!
Cheers to a unplanned blogger meet-up and a great night in the hotel bar!!
