I MUST confess that I wrote 95 percent of this post after this blind date ‘high’ and totally slacked on putting in the links, etc., ’cause I’m crazy busy (and lazy!) like that. FINALLY, your slacker blogger friend has finished…

I alluded to it in a recent outfit post that earlier this month I had the best blind date ever! Actually, I think I had only one real blind date before meeting my man so while the competition wasn’t too intense, this was off-the-charts amazing.

My blind date? It was happy hour… with a hanful of local bloggers!

While it’s been incredible to start The Average Girl’s Guide, I only know two or three bloggers even though I’ve connected with dozens over the Internet, Twitter and Facebook. This night was all about instant connections. Sparks flew across the high top, for sure! So much to gab about, plus we had an equal love of wine, mac n’ cheese and hunky bartenders (thank you to Pistache in WPB for hiring such a cutie!) Check us out…  

 

Check out these fabulous gals, L-R: LC of of Travel the Unbeaten Path, Allison of Dear Martha Stewart, Lauren of The World Admired, MJ of Fab Fierce Fashion, {moi}, Lauren of Baylor Says and Loni of It! Weddings Florida.

Plus, a few more photos…

LC with Alli (who also happen to be co-workers; jealous!), promised us she was going to start a blog — and she did!

Sandwiched between two phenomenal bloggers; miss fashion and beauty to my left and hysterically funny interior design gal to my right (who I actually recently met during last month’s half-blind movie date; our husbands know each other)!

 The star of the eve: the cheesiest, tastiest truffle oil mac & cheese. Just had to order it for the table!

Check out Loni with her nerdy/super awesome clipboard and bag big enough to fit lots more office goodies she showed us. Recognize her?? TAGG recently featured her 5 must haves, though this is the first time we met in person. Such a sweetheart, totally gorgeous and uber smart. Actually, that was really the theme of the evening… I’m so impressed by these women. Just gorgeous! Major love to all.

Until our next rendeveous…
