We had a blast last night at Buca Di Beppo in Exton. We were crammed into the Pope’s room, which we all found rather comical. We literally had to remove a bust of the pope from the center of our table before we could eat.
We talked nonstop for three hours, at which point they finally kicked us out because the next party was waiting. You’ve never seen talking until you’ve been in a room with 20 bloggers. At one point it was so loud, I couldn’t hear the person next to me. But we had a blast.
There was swag for each of us from Graco, newbaby.com, Smart Mom Solutions, Orville Redenbacher, Mom Central and the Handyguys Podcast. And then there were even a few gifts to be won — I was the lucky and timely recipient of The No-Cry Potty Training Solution, which I intend to read cover to cover before the weekend’s out. I sure could have used that a few days ago! And two lucky ladies left with brand new Graco Nautilus carseats. To top it all off, Graco graciously picked up the tab for dinner.
Here are a few pictures of the night.
That’s Margie from Gunning It, Lindsay and Melissa from Graco Blog, and girlymama.
That’s Colleen from Classy Mommy, Sarah from Genesis Moments, me, and Kris (aka Mommy Sparklykatt).
That’s Beth from Total Mom Haircut, Mel from A Box of Chocolates, and Sarah from Water, Water Everywhere.
Kris, Whitney from Mommies With Style, and Katia from Freeform Katia.
Finally, Amy from Crazy, But the Cool Kind, Amy from Occupation Mommy, and Erin from Graco Blog.
Also in attendance – my neighbor Kim from Situationally Single Mom, but she arrived after the picture taking frenzy.
I didn’t take the time to link to everyone, but there is a list of all the Philly Mom Bloggers on my blogroll.
I want to say a hearty thank you to everyone who made the evening a success. We hope to do this again in the fall, so if you didn’t make it this time, hopefully we’ll see you then.
