Made it to Louisville KY!!!


Mira, Me, Kate-Monster, Eileen :) all blog girls

After riding many hours in a car with four kids...I have a screaming HEADACHE!!!! NOW I see why I DO NOT do road trips very often....I really am a home body as some times all the packing and unpacking and kids being off schedules and acting like monsters...it just seems to add MORE STRESS!!!!! Hearing "Are we there yet" 400x's and I have to peeeeeeeee 600x's or Konor is annoying meeeeeee and the husbands HORRIBLE singing.......I slept on the HARDEST bed ever and woke up with sore back and neck and I LOVE bed...but NOT THIS BED..ugggg...we are staying in a suite that is huge, nice BUT hard beds ...So YES I am a little irritated:)

Last night I had the opportunity to finally get to meet Kate-Monster and Eileen Swanson and Mira...we all met up for dinner....It is funny that we really only talk through email or through our blogs.....but it seems like I have known them forever:) Kate is truly funny and very out going...she is just like her charter on her blog...she is just so much fun:) Eileen is the tan cutie...she is super sweet...I think you NEED a kid E...I say that because my kids were TIRED and acting crazy at the restaurant and E's eyes where big with the look on her face "OH MY" I think we will see a Swanson kid soon:) Mira, well I should say Dr.Mira:) she is super nice and was trying to figure my UGLY legs out...I think she was stumped....Mira I am going to be SO happy when I see you exit that water on Sunday:) They all were a fun group, but I had to cut my visit short due to my kids running all over the place and I laughed OH I know what ALL your guys next blog write up will be:::::MEL REALLY IS CRAZY:)

OK...off to meet up with Kate Monster for some coffee and hoping to meet up with Bree and E a little later....more photo's to come:)

LOL... Some things are worth being traumatized by the kids :-) Give Kate Monster a hug for me!!!

Laura said...

Yay! That's exciting you all met up. Give Mira a hug for me. (is that weird? I still have never met her...) I know she is going to rock this thang!

I am so bummed I missed you guys, family is here (need I say more). Oh Mel, no wonder you are so tuff (and so crazy) the 5 you had to ride with would cause me to go wako too! I am so glad you came though, seeing you out there will make it awesome!
Swim tomorrow, you might have to babysit, but if you can jump in we are hitting the lake about 9ish or something, E has details.

Have a great night, I can borrow one of the kids if you need me too, I miss Kainoa (but I only want one)... you keep the other 3...

I thought of you yesterday evening since I was stuck doing a 2 hour trainer ride in the basement. The whole time I was thinking, "I wish I could look as good as Mel!" Maddy and Joey were being quite good and played Legos the whole time!

Enjoy the bloggers' (re)union!

Who would've thought bloggers would unite in KY? I think we should have a big blogger party somewhere fun and exotic. (I mean, I'm sure KY is cool and everything, but um, it's not really exotic...)

ANYWAY I don't know how you do it, Mel. I really don't. 4 kids...wow.

HAVE FUN! I'm sending my best to Todd out there today!

That is so cool that all of you guys got to meet up! Sorry about the car ride! 4 kids in the car, I think I'd go NUTS!! :) Have fun though, and I hope you sleep better. I've been following Todd, and he's doing GREAT! Wish him luck from us all! And BTW: Could your kids be cuter?? :)
