Bloggin’ mamas

Last Monday night (yep, this post is exactly one week late), I hung out with a group of women I felt like I’d known for ages. We had a ridiculous amount of stuff in common. Kids, blogs, a shared fondness for sleep.

Thing is, I’d only just met them.

I felt a bit like a party-crasher, walking into a room full of mommy bloggers, but once we started introducing ourselves by our Twitter handles, I relaxed. Nothing like, “Hi! I’m pretty swell!” to break the ice.

The evening started with a lovely little champagne party at The Lollipop Shop in North Hills. Or, as I like to call it, What Heaven Looked Like When I Was A Kid. The walls were lined with candy, and gigantic barrels of even more candy beckoned from the floor. You could swim in the candy. I almost tried.

We then walked over to Mura, where we were seated in a fun private room with a sunken table. At five-feet-ten, I wriggled down into that table-pit and vowed not to get up during the meal, no matter how badly I had to pee. Let’s just say the jeans don’t exactly stay up around the hips, and no one needs to witness that spectacle. A little crack with your sushi?  Um, no.

Talking to the server’s knees was pretty amusing, and he seemed equally amused by us. Conversations ranged from breastfeeding to fake eyelashes. I laughed a lot. And snorted. Classy. You guys would have been proud.

What a fun night. I’m super excited to have hung with all of these cool chicks:

Marty from Don’t Take the Repeats

Melissa from adventuroo (who invited me along — thanks, Mel!)

Sarah from Go Ask Mom

Sue from Motherhood & Me

And if my camera batteries hadn’t croaked after about 20 minutes, you’d actually have gotten to see more of their faces. Ah, well. Next time!

A giant tower of YUM.
