Blogger Meet-up

Last Thursday evening, after a long day of work I had the pleasure of attending a local Chicago Blogger Event. Rockit Bar and Grill was kind enough to host us, and it was a perfect venue. Downtown hot spot, some delish food and drinks, & a great scene! Definitely one of those seen and be seen at kinda places - perfect for a night out!! I plan out heading there again soon!! Especially once the temps get warmer & the rooftop is in full swing!!!

I had a blast meeting so many Fabulous ladies, so many of who I read regularly and didn't even realize were Chicago ladies until the planning got serious! A big thanks to Danielle, for organizing this! So excited to get working on the next one!!! And if you are in Chicago and want in, let me know - I'll get ya on the list! hehe!

Here are a few shots from the evening (excuse the weird look I have in every shot, I am blaming it on the exhaustion from a near 11 hour day of work before heading there). And BIG Thanks to Alaina and Danielle for taking and sharing some photos!!! I was a rockstar and realized halfway through the day my camera was sitting at home! wa-wah! Wearing Zara shirt, high-waisted jeans and wedges...yes it is like it is still winter here!
Truffle Fries, SO GOOD!!!! 
'Grape Nuts' - my new fav snack, going to try and make at home soon! Grapes covered in goat cheese dipped in crushed pistachios!

And here is a list of the lovely locals! (HA, love the way that sounds!) Go visit!!!
