Tulsa Mom's Nite Out

I'm currently sitting across from Tasha at her house after joining up with Oklahoma women bloggers for the "Tulsa Mom's Nite Out." I'm occupying her couch tonight since my lovely parents abandoned me this week and moved back to California... but that's another story. I'm occupying her house tomorrow night, too, but she doesn't know it yet. Oh, wait, now she does.

Anyway, even though I'm only the mother of two hairy beasts, I had a pretty good time despite being nervous about tripping and such. I always feel really awkward in crowds and become very self conscious of my nostrils for some reason. So, I made Tasha wear me like underwear 'cause she's pretty good at networking. I think it's because she knows how to loosen up...


Also in tow was chic Sindy of Sindy In Tulsa. She's really helpful to have around when meeting new people, too. You just have to say, "she's from Germany" and conversations explode!

That's how we learned that Christine of Stine Stuff lived in Germany herself for a year. How cool is that? Of course, I already knew Tasha and Sindy. On to the new people! And a lot of new people there were...this was quite the happenin' event.


The crowd was friendly and chatty as we all went around with eyes at breast level to figure out who belonged to what blog. I finally met Holly with Tulsa Art Blog though we've been virtual friends for quite awhile now.


AND, I made a brand new friend...





Alicia of Penny Princess was super cool. She and The Coupon Queen will have me rollin' in dough in no time. The list continues...I met Jill of All Trades who won my guilt driven giveaway, Courtney with Homemaker Hero who helps me get organized with my home maintenance and so many more. Thanks to the lovely hostesses who set this up and I look forward to next year. It was great meeting everyone! And don't think for one second that I made it out without managing to be a total nerd...


It can't be done.

It was so good to meet you! I wish there was more time to sit and talk to everyone, but with 60 people, I think we're just going to have to plan another meet up soon. I've enjoyed getting to know you through twitter - and now through your blog. I'm so glad I can finally put a face with a name!
