Despite the fact that I use social media, I tend to live in social Siberia. Our social calender consists of "Hey! Let take the kids to Grandma's!" I don't get out much.
Last night I finally did. I went to a Burgh Mom event held at IKEA Pittsburgh and organized by Burgh Baby. I was a little nervous to go since I wouldn't know anyone there personally and only knew one or two people via Twitter. Most people tell me that I'm pretty much the same offline as online (which is no shock to me) so at least I didn't feel like I had to be someone else in person.
It was a lot of fun!
IKEA handed out schway swag bags and fed us scrumptious edibles. Can I just say that Princess Cake is my new favorite dessert? It's a good thing I have to drive 40 minutes to get it because otherwise my behind would get even more badonkedty donk.
At least half of the women there were in varying stages of pregnancy. I stayed the hell away from drinking that water. I'm happy for them because it's what they want but I want to be pregnant again about as much as I want to shove my head in the oven.
I also got to meet Ginny from That's Church who was very sweet when I introduced myself as one of her readers and then promptly left her alone so I wasn't all fan girl. I got to sit around and chat with ClumberKim and Red Pen Mama and Epsnider all of whom were really awesome chicks. Now that I've done this get-together thing once, I would do it again in a heartbeat. It was nice to be able to go to one that was 'neutral territory' the first time but I won't be afraid to go to someone's house next time.
All in all it was a great night out.
