MN Blogger Meetup

I know how I said this week would be thrift week but I was a big fat liar. I'm going to take pictures on Saturday so I can get the ball rolling. Anna emailed me and said she wanted to join in so hopefully I didn't piss her off too much and she still wants to do it. Go check out her blog and say sorry again for me :)

Back to the task at hand. I went to the MN blogger meetup on Saturday and it was so fun! I met so many great ladies and found a bunch of new blogs to follow. I hope a lot of these gals will be IRL friends too because they were really cool. My social awkwardness kicked in and so I didn't meet as many girls as I wanted to (next time!). Maria, Annie and I met up and carpooled over there. I'm so glad they were with because it was a bit hard to find and I might have turned around and gone home if they weren't with me. Everyone liked the peanut butter cup cookies I made (I can post a recipe if anyone's interested) and I got to show off my new dress and hair cut.
I really hope that we can all get together again soon!

Annie and Maria were taking outfit photos and wanted me to take one of them together since they are both in the Delightful Dozen. I pretended like I was in it too and took pictures with both of them.

See how good I look when I try to be sassy... um.

I wish this was facebook and people would tag themselves... :/

Outfit Details:
Dress, shoes, belt - thrifted (take that thrift week!)
Earrings - boutique in Baltimore that I don't remember


  1. Hahah, oh the awesome awkwardness. It was a really fun time and I am totally glad we carpooled. I definitely would have chickened out.

  2. Oh I had such a great time! I feel like I should've worn a skirt or a dress or something, you ladies all look so cute and I look like a sweat bomb!

    Also yes, let's hang out again soon and YES post that peanut butter cup recipe!!!

  3. Woa awesome pictures Erin! I am so glad other people were taking awesome pictures because I, for one, was not... I met so many girls, but did not really get a chance to chat with you! Let hang soon.


  4. Awww looks like you had a lovely time! And your outfit is lovely x

  5. Erin- you save the day for taking pictures (I totally was being lazy and didn't). Had such a great time and was so nice meeting you!

  6. It was nice meeting you, and I'm impressed that you took so many pictures.

  7. Wow this looks like a great group!! I love love the color and style of your dress - is it thrifted? I am *obsessed with thrifting. Officially.  Can't wait to see more! -Rachel (

  8. It was so great to meet you! Hope to see you again really soon.
    And YES, would love the recipe to those delicious peanut butter cup cookies you made~ they were delicious. ;)

  9. Oh me too, the awkwardness was fully expressed in these pictures alone...

  10. I thought you looked super cute. I will post that recipe soon!

  11. I vote let's hang for sure! I wanted your dress but that thing would never fit me... I say let's get a date for a swap ASAP!

  12. It was nice to meet you too! Feel free to steal some photos :)

  13. I thought it was weird I only took like 5 but I guess I took more than everyone else :)

  14. Oh yes, I got it on a thrift trip with Jill from Spoils of Wear. Best part? It was 50% off!

  15. It was so great to meet you and thanks so much for hosting! I will get around to posting the recipe soon :) They are really easy.
