Girls' Day in Indy

This past Saturday was... terrific!

I met up with fellow bloggers Candace (from New Adventures of the Princess & the Peanut) & Steph (from Plan B) for a girls' day in Indianapolis.

Candace & I have known each other since childhood, and she remains one of my oldest & dearest friends.

Steph connected with me thru blogging, by way of Candace's blog. Since then we have become Facebook friends, shared a few emails, and basically just came to realize that we have a ton in common, and she's become a good friend, although until Saturday one I only knew online.

A month or so ago (maybe two months now?) the idea was thrown out for the three of us to get together, since we have this common friend-blog-friend thread. We all enthusiastically agreed, and despite the fact that we each live in separate states  from one another (three friends, three different states), we agreed on a destination and made plans.

Candace met me at a gas station off the highway, and we rode together to Circle Centre Mall, where we both met Steph in real person for the first time.

Lunch at Hard Rock followed, where we ended up chatting it up for over three hours!

After Hard Rock we headed back to the Mall for some shopping. A few hours (and some new clothes) later, we made tentative plans for a future outing (in a different state, mind you, LOL), then Candace & I parted ways with Steph and headed for home.

And while that's the nuts & bolts of our girls' day, this post really doesn't do it justice. It was truly one of the most fun, relaxing, refueling days I've had in a long time.

Yes, refueling. I think that is the word I will use to describe that day. I came home refueled.

Thanks girls! It was truly a pleasure to spend the day with both of you!

And has me brainstorming other ideas for future meetups... more to come!

I know I've said it already, but I had such an amazing time meeting you! I think your word choice of "refueled" really hit the nail on the head...I definitely left feeling refueled. I'm so glad our paths crossed and proud to call you my friend :)

Can't wait for next time (we really need to set a date).

I agree!!! It was such an awesome day!!! I had so much fun and it really helped me relax and come back as a(little bit) better momma! Thanks girls, and I agree with Stephanie... we need to set the next date! :) Love ya's! :)

Oh... and would you be able to send me the full images of those pics when you get a chance? next time... I am not going to forget my camera in the car! :) Also the self portrait of all three of us. :) THanks!

Oh. My. Gosh! Can you believe this has been two years?
