February 22nd was a magical kind of day! (Let's pretend that said March 7th so it looks like I'm blogging this in a timely manner)
My great friend/coworker/lunch buddy Katie (who I met through blogging originally) and I pulled together and hosted the first ever AZ Blogger Meetup!
We were so lucky to have one of the best local restaurants host us! Thank you thank Sweet Cakes! Thanks for letting us come, thanks for staying so late and giving us special hours, and thank you for making the world's best sugar cookies!
Seriously, they are a great company and all locals love and adore this business in the heart of Downtown Mesa. Schedule a lunch date if you've never been- they are AMAZING!
We had about 35 local bloggers meet up for a night of networking, treats, photoboothery, favorite things exchange, and introducing themselves and their blog to the crowd (sorry to all afraid of public speaking, I often forget I'm weird and am one of the only people on the planet who love it)!
We had everyone take a mug shot holding the name of their blog.
We only had 25 get their pictures taken, but here are some of the many lovely ladies I got to meet that night:
