Meeting Blog Friends

Have you ever met one of your blog friends in person? Well, yesterday I had the opportunity to meet Angela of Pickles On Pizza fame and her husband Aubrey. If you read Angela's blog you will find yourself totally entertained as she talks often about her job at her brother's restaurant, her family and her life in Mississippi.

Angela and Aubrey...it was so bright outside that it was hard not to squint!

Angela also has a couple of etsy shops, Cut n Glue where she sells her wonderful collages and the Ginger's Girl, her fantastic new vintage shop.

Angela and Aubrey (a fireman by day and an awesome musician by night....you can buy his CD from Angela's blog and take my word for it....it's a great CD) are vacationing in Chicago this week. We decided the easiest thing to do was for us to meet them at IKEA Sunday morning. They are only going to be here for a few days and I work during the week. The four of us sat and had some breakfast and chatted a while. Then we took a little walk around the store and it was time for them to get on their way into the big city.....Chicago. I can't wait to hear how they liked it!

Irv and Aubrey were taking pictures at the same time so Angela is looking at Irv and I'm looking at Aubrey.....and I was still talking.....no surprise there.

It was so great to meet the person behind the witty writing and the artistic talent. So, have you ever been lucky enough to meet one of your blog friends?

Oh, what fun! I've not yet met any of my blogger friends, except those that were friends before they started blogging, of course. This looks like you had a fun day!! Love, Silke

Oh, fun!!!! I've met a couple of local etsians, but never any blog friends- I suppose the easiest person to meet would be you since you're practically down the street! lol.. one of these days! :D

I have not, but would love to. Unfortunately my introvert husband would not be interested in meeting people he doesn't know. But, if I get the chance I would. And if anyone gets to OK, you must come visit!

I'm do jealous you got to me Angela! =)

How exciting!! I have never met any fellow bloggers......there is a guy that works/live about 20 miles away from me but I have never met him yet. Also, another one about an hour away.

I was wondering if you two were going to meet up!
I have never met any of my bloggy friends. I think it would be such a fun and yet strange experience! You know, two worlds colliding.
Glad you guys had fun! ;)
