Are You Trying To Sell Me Something?

Beware Dorothy, there are actual humans behind the blogosphere curtain.  We met, they're better than I could have hoped for, and they didn't try and sell me anything.  

Yup, Hot Blogging Mamas

They wear hot mama shoes, too.

Check out our hostess Katydidnot.  She cooks a mean lasagna, has a heart full of laughter and house full of children to adore.


Blog This Mom rocked her biker boots, and knows how to WRITE.  Find her.  Tell her she's a writer.  Make her believe it.


We don't know how she pulls it off, but if you want a role model talk to Jenn at Juggling Life for advice on doing it ALL, and doing it well.

San Diego Momma knows how to snap a photo, make you laugh, and balance family life.


And Aaryn Belfer tells it like it is with compassion and dignity, all wrapped up in a smile while balanced on smokin' hot red wedge sandals.




The kiddos were amazing.  Maybe they have been reading over our shoulders because they seemed to sense the beauty of friendship around them.  A certain little sweet-pea even shared her birthday with us.   

If you can, go make it real.  Meet your local blog friends.  These ladies did not disappoint.  I officially have a crush on them all.

I AM SO JEALOUS! I could even visit San Diego for this...heh. (I'm a total PacNW girl; heat hurts me).

It looks like you guys had a rockin' time - brilliant idea to shoot shoe pics!

Jenn @ Juggling Life said...

You too are fast! And wonderful. And smart. And I love you and your kids and everybody else and their kids. I'm starting to make myself sick!

Motherhood for Dummies said...

okay I am in love with those tan flats that someone was wearing!?

kcinnova said...

I already told Jenn, I'm green with envy. And oh, those shoes!

Amy said...

That is very cool! We are planning a Boston get together this summer! Perhaps we could do a east coast meets west coast in the future?

tommie said...

How fun! I love the shoe shot. We have started doing that as a family on vacation and in just random places.

Mary said...

How cool was this?!? I would love to meet my blogging buddies :)

BTW, fabulous shoes :)

just jamie said...

Okay, I have to give credit to Katydidnot for the shoe idea.

@ Motherhood For dummies: The tan flats are Jenn's. They *are* cute.

@ Amy -- good idea!

Cheri said...

Hahahahahaha! My kids is holding a keyboard!!!

Jamie! I had so much fun last night I can hardly see straight!

You are quick on the posting, my dear, special friend!

Katy is right, we are a CLIQUE in all caps. But we aren't the popular girls and anyone can join us, right? We're nice. Lasgna for the Blogosphere!!!

And nobody tried to sell any Tupperware, candles, Mary Kay, Pampered Chef . . . nada.

San Diego Momma said...

Last night was great!

What'd your husband think about the tupperware and wine club you joined? :)

You took some wonderful pictures with that Nikon. Hmmmm. ;)

Very fun last night. I cannot believe I didn't bring my camera. Missed opportunities: I'm all about 'em.

Wonderful post. So glad to have met you in person and look forward to the next time!

Amy said...

How fun! I would love to meet some blogging friends in person. I'm taking a road trip this summer, hopefully I can meet a few along the way!

Amber M. said...

Dude, sounds like a ball. Too bad I live somewhere that is far away and cold. Sigh.

Mrs. G. said...

That last photo of the kids warms my heart. Our little bloggers of the future.

Kathryn said...

I want to meet some bloggy friends too!!! I'm so jealous!

Angela said...

CC said...

How awesome awesome awesome!!! Are you all in SD? I was there at Christmas time! :)

And hot mama shoes? Is that a requirement for the clique? Because I only own shoes I can run after students in. No joke. I won't buy them if I can't go tearing down the hall after a "loose" student.

LaskiGal said...

Jamie! This is so awesome!!! How cool is that--real life. Face to face. Flesh and blood. WOW!!! That just takes this blogging thing to a whole new level!

You all look like you had a blast! Awe . . . a NICE clique! I wouldn't have thought any different!!!

Casdok said...

How wonderful! Must be great to put faces to names!

Lisa said...

Burgh Baby's Mom said...

Who was wearing the open-toed red shoes? I think I have a little crush on her. Or just her feet. Either way, YAY! for meeting bloggy friends!

Happy Days said...

Way too much fun! That is so great that you guys got together!

My Ice Cream Diary said...

Ok, I need some cooler blogging shoes if I'm going to reach out to real people.

But personally I think the kids are cuter than the shoes =)

OHmommy said...

Hmmm.... I missed this post.

Are you going to Blogher in San Fran this july?
