The Deets on my Blogger Date!

You might remember the first time I met my dear friend Summer, and you might also remember the magical breakfast I got to have with my sweet girl, Micaela!  Welllllll . . . time to add a third to the list, cause last Friday I had lunch with the darling Leeann from Join the Gossip!

Leeann was in the Bay Area visiting friends, but as fate would have it, San Francisco schools were out the very day she was free!  So last Friday, Leeann and I met in the East Bay and headed to Jupiter for some pizza and beer.

Let me just say that Leeann is one of those lucky souls who is even more adorable in person than she is in pictures.

(I only hang out with bloggers whose hair matches mine)

(Leeann took this--doesn't it look like it should be in a food magazine??)

(Jupiter's Xanthia pizza sans bacon = to die for)

We had such a blast together!  Non-stop chatter for several hours straight--we talked about blogs, boys, beer, jobs, and fantasy travel. :)  Leeann is adorable, funny, independent, and so much fun . . . suffice to say that if we lived in the same city, we'd be scheduling regular girls' nights.  Guess I'll have to book at trip to LA in the meantime!

come to the bay and I'll take you to Jupiter!

Thanks for coming to Berkeley, Leeann--it was so much fun!

I like your criteria for who you hang out style/color! Very good.

Cute girls!

It's important to only be seen with people who have the same hair! :) that was cute. Can we talk about that pizza and the fact I haven't eaten yet today?
It's so great when you meet people and you are instant friends, easy and comfortable, nothing is forced. I love that.

That sounds fantastic!!! You both look so adorable:) Have a great day

Ps: I’m hosting a charming jewelry GIVEAWAY today! Hope you’ll join in:)

Summer {athena in the middle} said...

I guess that we can no longer hang out then. out hair certainly does not match. BAH!

food looks fantastic and you both look adorable!

Faiza said...

i don't care if my hair doesn't match yours...we will hang out! :) i also want some pizza from Jupiter!

so happy that you got to meet a blogger friend and turn her into an in real life friend!

Leeann @ Join the Gossip said...

Aw this was such a sweet post! Thanks so much!! :) I got so happy reading it!! Thanks again for suggesting the place and meeting up with me. I only wish I had more time to hang. Next time for sure. And when you're down south we are getting together for sure!

P.S. forgot to mention that I talked about you in my "meeting" yesterday! About how the blogging world brings people together from all over the world. Nice little touch. I am on to the se4cond round with them ;)

Marz said...

SO jealous of Leeann!! Can't wait until it's us eating together at Jupiter!!! :)

What adorable photos of you girls! So funny that your hairs really do match :) I love your earrings Claire :) You're so pretty!

I always love hearing about blog meet ups because it just reinforces what I know to be true: that blog friends are most def "real" friends :) And that's why what I feel for you without ever meeting you is so strong! I love you!! xo

yea i tend to stick with brunettes myself ;)

very cool. you two look like old friends.

oh and to answer your question about the wire...just suck it up and watch it. the first three episodes take a while to pick up the storylines...but once it does...OH it's so good. and season 4 is one of my favorite seasons. i actually watched that one first (by chance) and that's how i got sucked in.

Jax said...

So fun!!! Love the "I only hang with bloggers whose hair matches mine.." hahahaha!

drollgirl said...

So this was the first time you met Leeann ever? I hope to meet her one day, she's a doll!

The next time I am in San Fran, you and I have to get together for a blog meet up. I will probably go to visit my mom in Cali later this year.
