So Happy Together

Let's do this thing!

Do what? Let's have our first annual get together! Forty four people voted in our poll and 28 said they want to do our own thing! Yea. So now comes the task of figuring out when, where, who, what and how. No wait, that's journalism. Well, maybe it still applies. To determine the location, I think we should poll where everyone lives who is interested in attending. (Janelle, I kind of needed you working out the grammar of that last sentence.) We also need to see when would be the most popular dates. I'm thinking weekends are better.

I am so excited about this!!! You have no idea! So let's do this: If you are interested in coming, leave a comment telling me WHERE you live and maybe where you would be interested in going. I have a place in mind, but I'll keep that under wraps right now.

I'm going to put up a poll listing some possible dates to see what appeals to most people. You can vote more than once in this poll. Also tell me if you want to do this kid-less or with kids. I'll put a poll for that too.

And for those of you who want to do the McMama cruise, have fun! I won't be able to attend. But those of you who are going on the SITS cruise-- I'm going to try to go on that one too! I'm also planning on going to BlogHer in Chicago on July 24-25. So if you can't make our get together, there will be other opportunities to heckle me meet me and for me to annoy the bejiggers out of you meet you.

And to the one person who said Meet you? Are you crazy! Be afraid, be very afraid. Don't worry, you have nothing to fear (or do you??) When I saw your vote I died laughing!

I'm a FL girl, but will go anywhere. I'm hoping to do blogher in July in Chicago, so maybe I'll see you there!

Candace said...

I'm in northwest Arkansas. It would be so nice to meet everyone.

Janelle said...

I really don't think there is a way to clean up that sentence! :-P I think I gave up correcting YOUR grammar for Lent! hehe

I believe you know where I live. I'd love to go...I'll just have to wait and see if it works out. :) I definitely have to be home on June 17th, tho. Somehow I will have managed to have stayed married for 20 years on that day!

Charleston SC
looks like more of you are not close to this area, so we'll have to see

Kristin said...

You know where I live and you know where I suggested we go. :-)

But, hey, I'm flexible. I think. It depends on the summer plans with work......

Presuming we're not in China collecting Miss Molly Jayne, we're available on the weekends I voted. We're in Southwest Ohio but willing to go anywhere we can travel by car. If we have to fly, we'll see about the budget, etc. As far as the kids/no kids question, Meggie will NOT stand for me getting to meet the famous/infamous Denise without her. Carson's presence is optional, but I'm sure he'd crack us all up!!

I live in Bama but will travel to meet you guys anywhere as long as I'm not in China. There is no way I'm taking my kids - this is a mom's vacation for me! I don't visit the BlogHer site and I don't even know what SITS is, so this is my chance to go and have some fun! Anybody up for wine and dancing at midnight?

Denise said...

Heather, you don't even have to ask!

Kristy said...

I live in Texas, but I don't know because every last penny is going toward our travel to China. But please don't count me out, I REAAALLLYYYY want to meet all of you. You could just all come here and stay with me.

Love, Kristy

I am in southeastern, Kentucky. I am open on all of the weekends so far. It just depends on where and when you go. I would love a ladies get together. My situation is complicated with the divorce and visitation not being so consistent. If i can work it out, I will be there.

I'd love to meet fellow bloggers that I feel like I now know:) I'm in northwest FL and can travel within driving distance easily...

Lorie said...

I would love to meet, not sure if I could do it w/out the kids, would have to see, a weekend might be doable. I live in SW Florida. I think anyweekend above will work for me, just need advance notice.
