Recap: Texas Bloggers first DFW Bloggers' Meet Up!

On Saturday, September 08th, Julie from A Beautiful Day, Taylor from Goings On in Texas, and I hosted the first ever Texas Bloggers DFW Meet Up at A Piece of Work in Fort Worth!

The hostesses of the night

The eventful night was filled with goodies to munch on...


Wine to be enjoyed...

... and paintings to be drawn!

I thoroughly enjoyed chatting with and getting to know my fellow DFW Blogging gals. We truly are a little blogging community. Every woman I talked to that night was so kind, gracious, funny, and downright sweet! We may be online blogging pals, but rest assured my friendships with these ladies were truly affirmed that night. It's funny how bonds can be made through a little computer screen, isn't it?

I had the pleasure of meeting the following ladies that evening:
Julie at A Beautiful Day
Nicole at Three31
April at Red Dirt Mama
Becky at The Java Mama
Crystal at Mason's Mama
Jill at Nokoikonomia
Cynthia at Oh So Pinteresting

After a fun-filled night of blog talk, story swaps, painting, and wine, we all finally said our goodbyes and went our separate ways for the night... BUT, not before grabbing our take-home souvenir! Julie did a beautiful job decorating the keepsake boxes that held the homemade cupcakes I made for the event:

All in all, it was a fantastic time, and I can't wait for the next one! Thank you ladies for making this past weekend one to definitely remember! :-)

Oh, and PS, just so it's out there as photographic proof that I DID paint something in my life, here's me with my attempted painting from the evening's workshop... I think I'll stick to my art skills on cupcakes! haha ;-)



  1. Yours seriously turned out amazing! Looks great! I showed mine to my husband when I got home and he just looked at it, then me, and said "well, you're really good at other things".... yep, let's hope so... lol

    Great meeting you!
    -Samm @ Little House in the Big D

    1. Aw, thanks girl! Haha well your blog is a true statement that you ARE good at other things! Who needs a silly canvas, anyways! ;-)

  2. Great post, Sarah! You are truly a sweetheart and I was thrilled to meet you. Your painting is great, but not quite as awesome as those cupcakes....thank you for the taking on that task - I would have gone to the bakery and your hardwork made them that much more special! Once I get my post up it is going to be prety anticlimatic as I am bringing up the rear (as usual), but it will happen!

    1. You are SO welcome! I enjoyed meeting you so much, as well! Keep truckin'... late or not, I love reading your posts!

  3. I had so much fun Saturday and it was so great to meet everyone! xoxo!

    1. I'm so glad you had a great time, Lauren! Thanks for coming, and thank you for stopping by my page! :-)

  4. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! You ladies did phenomenal putting this event together *AND* I'm grateful you included everybody's blog links. It was going to take me forever a day to find everybody. Big hugs to you, Friend. =)

    Nicole @ Three 31

  5. WOW...I have been reading about this.Looks like you ladies had so much fun!! How does one get invited? I blog...but it is purely for me, fun - I don't make money at it. You girls look like such a fun group...

  6. this looks like so much fun. Maybe next time I'll make the drive to come hang out with you ladies. I live about 2 hours away but perhaps I'll try to come!

  7. Great recap!!! Loved your pics and the fact that you linked to everyone...I was racking my brain trying to figure out how I was going to do that too..you rock my friend!! :) Loved meeting you IRL and an amazing job on the cupcakes!!

  8. I've been seeing pictures of those cupcakes on lots of the Texas ladies' blogs! They look awesome!!
