Day 96: Blogger Get-Together, Colonial Style

Yay!!  I had such a nice time, meeting a blog buddy today!!

We (all) had a FABULOUS time today!!  We "recognized" each other because we two bloggers had the baggiest clothes in the place.  I guess it is time to do some shopping!  LOL

We ordered the same thing for lunch - an acorn squash dish, which was wonderful.

We paraded up and down the Duke of Glouchester Street (the main avenue), in Colonial Williamsburg.  The maples were red and orange, the sky blue, and the company was a lot of fun!  And, while I didn't find the elusive Leedsware platter I was hoping to find, and my blog buddy didn't find her "chef" nutcracker, we enjoyed the history and scenery of CW.  The husbands enjoyed the ale and (I suspect) the lamenting over what we might possibly find in the shops we gals popped into.  (No damage was done to either pocketbook - we both like to shop, but apparently are picky.)  LOL

We had only planned for lunch and some CW walking, but had so much fun, we extended the visit through dinner and a nice visit afterwards.  We head for our respective homes in the morning.  My blog buddy is now fully back in the groove (she was finding motivation lacking the last month or two) ... GREAT job!  I think it is sometimes easier to be motivated when you are around other, similarly motivated people.  Don't you?

Dinner was actually just big salads (for the gals) ... the guys had steaks.  Everybody was happy! 

Laughter was had by all, and Saturday (Day 95) was an enjoyable day!

If my husband sleeps in, in the morning, I'm going to do something I've never done before ... check out the hotel's exercise room.  I know!  I can't believe it either ... walking Friday, walking Saturday, exercising on Sunday??!!  I thought it might be nice to try one of those big intimidating treadmills (when did they get SO BIG??), since I'll be in the car for half a day.

Time for bed ... it is going to be a busy day (later today). 

Day 96 and loving how Day 95 went ... Safe travels, my blog buddy!!  xx


  1. Meeting blog friends is the best!!

  2. It sounds like you had a perfectly lovely day.

    How did the treadmill go?

  3. Sounds like you have a fabulous day! Awesome!! :)

  4. Kimberly, the treadmill was great! They've come a LONG way, haven't they? I didn't get all the functions/options it had (no one there to show me all the things), but the most important/obvious functions were self-explanatory. The treadmill was surprisingly (to me) smooth in action too.

    Blu, yes it is - good group, the bloggers!

    Margene, it really was a lot of fun. And I think being on similar journey, with similar challenges and experiences just makes it easier to connect to people. Don't you?

  5. That sounds like so much fun!!! I'm glad you enjoyed your vacation and your blogger get-together! This journey we're all on is a great thing over which to bond!

  6. How fun to meet a blogging buddy! Looks like you two (four) really hit it off. Michele
