Crazy? Maybe. A Dreamer? Always.

Last nite while drinking my new favorite wine ever watching Paranormal Activity I had a genius idea.

But let me just say my genius idea had nothing to do with the wine the movie. For reals.

I was sitting here...trying to daydream around because I was seriously freaked out at this movie. Me, ghosts, a scared husband, and the dark? Don't really go together well.

Anyways.

So there I was, lalala. Thinking happy thoughts. Thinking how much I want to go to a blogging conference, but with the girls it just wasn't possible this year. Leo offered, but I just decided to wait until next year {I hope. Crossing fingers and toes. If you are planning on one or want to go lets plan it together!}.

And then I had my idea. My vision. My Iwantthistohappensobadidea.

I turned to Leo and said, "What would you think if I decided to get a group of blog girlfriends together. Somewhere away from home. A couple of days. To meet. To have fun. To just get away and laugh."

His reply?

Throw it out there. See if anyone would like to plan a little trip.

Seriously. How much fun would it be?!

I have no idea when or where or who.

But I do know that I want to do this. I want to meet my blog friends.

Where the conversations are filled with laughter. Where we can have wine {or whatever it is you like, but I like wine so that's why I'm saying wine}. Where we can wear cute clothes that don't consist of yoga pants and my fave Gap sweats. Where I can wear adorable shoes that will kill my feet but I won't care.

So. My question to you all--what do you think?

Is this something that you would ever consider?

Or am I just being the daydreamer that I always am?

I can't wait to hear your thoughts. The where. The who. The when.

I know it will be hard for you this year, but I think you should come to BlogHer in NYC! At least for a night or two? I'm only going for two nights... my youngest, who is 2 years old, is very attached to me so it's going to be almost impossible but I really want to make it work... so many bloggy people I want to meet, too! Come!!

Much More Than Mommy said...

This would only be the best. time. ever. :-) I'll be watching for details. Everyone should come to Florida! ;-)

BTW, I snagged your button. I may have already told you that. But I'm getting older, and I forget things. :-)

Mommy's Sippy Cup said...

That sounds like such a fantastic idea! I'm in :) When and where?! I'm ready for a much needed break.

Shell said...

I've been thinking about this...

it would be really quick, but what about in mid-April? Because we still have our kick-ass beach house until April 30th. After that, it's back to reality and we won't be living right on the beach. But, until then, we have this house, with 4 bedrooms, plus the pull-out in the rec room. I could send the boys and dh to mil's house for the weekend. We could hang out here and on the beach. Everyone just pays to get here and then kick in a little for food and drinks.

I am sort of in the middle of nowhere on the coast of NC, though. And it is really quick, but it's an idea!

Sophia's Mom said...

ME ME ME!!!
Mommy needs a vacation!
I have NEVER EVER been away from Sophia and I think I have come to the point where a night or two alone might be just what I need... Especially if there is alcohol and good company involved!!!

I would love to do it...but the money is the thing. My hubby says he supports it, but I really need to start saving.

Kelli @ writing the waves said...

It would be awesome to meet up! I know that we aren't too far from each other. :) Somewhere warm sounds like paradise. Can you tell I am ready for spring?

Erin said...

Just found you from Shell at Things I can't say. I think we have a lot in common. I have two girls (almost 3 and 6 months.)
