National Moms Night Out

I’m way over due for a ROAD TRIP!! Yep, that’s right, I’m one of those crazy people that love to be on the open road with great music and adventure looming in the immediate future.

Thursday I headed on over to Tulsa, Oklahoma and participated in the National Mom’s Night Out with some of my favorite bloggers, OK style.

Melanie, Shannon, and several others hosted the event. I’ve been wanting to meet Melanie from Blogging Basics 101 for quite a while now. We’ve become great blog friends and we will also be doing a new project together headed up by Alli Worthington this year.

For those and many other reasons, I jumped at the chance to spend 24 hours “me” time and go meet Melanie, Shannon, and the gang.

I also got a chance to meet Shannon from Rocks in my Dryer. {{squeal in delight}} Melanie & Shannon were amazing hosts and handled all the attention and eager fans so graciously. They made me feel right at ease and welcome.

I was delighted to see Christine (who I know in real life) and enjoyed eating dinner with her, Courtney, and Aubree. Dinner was good even though we had to wait for-ev-er for the “pizza of the gods” which was a fav and completely worth the wait.

Leanna and I were instant friends and obviously share the same taste in frilly shirts. She was the life of the party and really livened up the night.

Leanna & Dawn together are crazy fun! (You can see more pictures over at Dawn’s blog.)

I met Joy for the first time that evening and also became instant friends. She’s a doll!

Friday morning before I left, Melanie & Shannon met me at Starbucks and we chatted about life, blogging, and WordPress. I certainly didn’t expect the one-on-one time especially considering that Melanie was leaving for Disney the next morning. However, it really made my trip worth while. I feel such a camaraderie with these women and it was amazing to be able to spend some quality time with them on a more personal level.

I realized on the way home that this was the first time I slept in a hotel and navigated my way in and out of Texas all by myself. (Well, Candy the navigation system really helped.)

It was just what I needed as I jammed out to my own music, ate junk food, and enjoyed the green rolling hills along the way.

The best part of the drive was that Jason hooked up my iPhone to the car speakers, so I could rock out LOUD!

Ahhh, good times.
