#MNBloggerHH Recaps!

Last night was our first Minnesota Bloggers Happy Hour (organized from this ol' blog) and I have to say that it was HUGE success!! We hope that you all had a great time enhancing your friendships in real life and meeting new friends too!

A big thank you goes out to all of you bloggers who, despite your nervousness, came out to meet everyone! Apologies for not being a bit more organized, but we're learning :-) It obviously would not have been the same without everyone who was there. We had bloggers come all the way from Farmington to Coon Rapids to Medina to Forest Lake, some of us (err, just super genius Kelly) had just busted our butts with the BAR exam, some leaving work functions early, or having the husband take on kiddo duty for the night, etc... Thank you for coming!!

There was a ton of feedback about how we must get a 2nd get-together on the books soon. The general consensus is that now that many of us have finally been introduced, having a more specific activity would be fun-- like meeting up at The Paint Pub for wine drinking and painting! Stay tuned for more information soon! (I'll check to see if they have a chalkboard wall or not ;-))

Once again... If you were able to make it out last night, THANK YOU. I truly had a blast. If you were not able to join us, you were missed!! Blogger get-togethers are only as successful as the ones who attend-- the more the merrier and we'd love to have you next time!! :-)

If you have posted about last night's Happy Hour, feel free to link up below! Thanks again and take care, girls!

<3 Kelly
