BlogCrush: OC Blogger and Twitter Meet-Up


Almost two weeks ago, we had an Orange County Blogger and Twitter meet-up at the Veggie Grill at the Irvine Spectrum. Suzanne Broughton from Alive in Wonderland and MomCrush organized this fabulous event for everyone.

I’ve been a total slacker, ok I admit I forgot to post about the meet-up. I have way too much going on in my life right now and I tend to get a little forgetful sometimes. I arrived at the Veggie Grill with my BFF, Stacey. I’m not a big fan of vegetarian food so I chose to abstain from the eats at The Veggie Grill. Everyone said that the food was delicious. I still refrained. I did get an ice tea. I had to go and borrow, ok perhaps I took several packets of Sweet’N Low from the neighboring Chipotle.

I was able to talk to several people whom I’ve been commenting with, tweeting with, etc. It was really great to meet everyone. Unfortunately I did not get to spend some one on one time with everyone there. We needed to arrange it speed dating like or something, with a time frame. I feel that if I made maybe 5 great new connections with the people there, I was successful. There are going to be more events in the future, so I can catch up with everyone there.

Kristin from Meringue Bake Shop also provided some fabulous margarita cupcakes. Perhaps, I had two of them that night. I loved her decorations on them.

I still need to blog about it too. I need to go off on the gnarly frosting on the carrot cake at veggie grill. I'm still trying to figure that out! It was fun. I agree we should do it speed date style!

At least you posted about it! Thanks for the link and I can't wait for the next one. Now that I've read everyone's blogs I feel like I'll have more to talk about than the surface stuff "what's your blog?" "how long have you been bloging?" type stuff :)
