When I first thought about starting a blog it took about 13 seconds for me to push the button. Most people dwell on it for a while before actually making one. Not me! I had no idea what I was getting myself into and had no idea what I would get out of it. It was a slow start. I only had about 12 followers for the first couple months and then it took off. It's been a roller coaster ever since. Slow and uneventful and then it'll boom and then back to being slow. It's no secret that my blog isn't the most successful or popular but I've made some friends out of it nonetheless. I've even had the pleasure of meeting a few of my bloggy friends. I keep in close contact with a couple of them but for the most part I've lost contact with most of them and it really upsets me. Sometimes life gets in the way! It happens with me more that most and I fall away from the blogging world and when that happens, people lose interest. And to be honest, with Dave being a full time student on top of having a full time job we just haven't had time to do anything fun so I really don't have much to blog about. I'm trying to get back into blogging regularly but it's hard. So hard! I hate to admit it but I don't remember most of the blogs I follow. I feel like I'm starting from scratch! So to the few of you that still follow along with my journey, thank you! And please keep sending me comments and love. It's the motivation I need to keep this blog going.
My very first bloggy friend meet up was with Courtney.
You can read about our meet up here
Courtney and I actually met on Facebook and then became blogger friends. We were internet friends for a while before we actually met in person. We're from the same city, know a lot of the same people and we have so much in common. We were destined to be friends! I rarely talk to her anymore and it hurts my heart! She's the nicest and sweetest girl and everyone should meet her.
I also met one of my very favorite bloggers Paula

I met Paula just by stumbling upon her blog. We hit it off faster than you can imagine! We quickly started emailing and then texting and then we realized that she lived just a few hours away from my In Laws. We just knew that we needed to meet! A few months later, we did! I love this girl! Kyson fell in love with her from the get go. She's his second love. I'm his first, duh! Paula has fallen away from blogging, her entire life has changed since our play date but I talk to her all the time. She's still my bloggy bestie and we'll be lifelong friends. She's a friend every girl needs! :)
I met Tiffany about a year later.
Crappy picture but it's the only one we took

I love this girl! She's been a bloggy friend since day one. She's probably been my most loyal blogging friend. She's always leaving me the kindest comments. She has the best blog and she's just the nicest person. She'll forever been a friend of mine! We've become friends on pretty much every social networking site there is and I love following along with her life. She's a fellow Military wife and we have really bonded because of it. We can really relate to most things. Go follow this girl's blog. She's worth it!
Last but not least I met the famous Alexis
Ugh, my face is so chubby from pregnancy!
Read about our ice cream date here
Alexis is the nicest person I've ever met! She has the purest heart and the greatest outlook on life. She also has the cutest baby girl ever! I met Alexis because I was visiting my sister and they just happened to live in the same city. I miss Mesa! Girl talk with this girl is so fun. I wish we lived closer to each other because I could see us staying up all night chit chatting! I've lost contact with her since our date and it literally makes me want to cry! But I love following along with her through blogging, facebook etc.
Blogging has brought so many great people in to my life. I have a few more meet ups planned for this summer and I cannot wait to make more lifelong friends! If you're ever in west Texas look me up! I'm always up for meeting new friends.
