A Recap of My Blogger Meet Up with Monica of Jersey Girl Texan Heart

Thursday, June 12, 2014

Okay so a few months ago I had dinner with my blogger bff Monica and I was going through withdrawal waiting for our next one! 

It finally came.  On Saturday, I drove to Camillo's Restaurant again to meet Monica.  This time we planned to take some photos and explore the area before having an early dinner. 

Despite the warmer temperature we had a blast posing for some outfit photos.  Monica took some AMAZING photos with her Canon T3 which caused me to finally decide on the T3 as my next purchase.   I even took some of her! 

We found an adorable little bridge and stream which made a great background! 

After about 2 hours we picked a table outside on the patio of Camillo's so we could exchange gifts!  

I got her a bunch of random goodies and she made me a Honda jar, an adorable frame, and she got me this amazing wall decor of a quote that means a lot to both of us.

I was thrilled to get my goodies. She's so thoughtful and created.  And she's super talented with her jars. I now have like 6 of them.  If you haven't seen her etsy shop (Jars by Monica) yet, then get the hell over there now!

Our dinner and drinks were delicious.

Mozzarella sticks and Calamari for appetizers as well as  Strawberry Shortcake Martinis!

Dinner was a pizza and crab bowtie pasta.

And we also had this other amazing drink, some sort of electric blue lemonade.  It seriously didn't even taste like alcohol which made it so easy to drink. DELICIOUS!

So anyways while we used to call each other blogger BFFs we now like to call each other sisters because we have so many things in common.  Not only do we look like we could be related, but we have both went through some similar experiences in our pasts, and we have a lot of the same interests and values!

It's so amazing to think that I wouldn't have met Monica had it not been for blogging. 

Stay tuned for two Outfit posts featuring the photos the lovely Monica took!!
