Last week Erica & ditched the little ones and headed to NYC for BlogFest 2012...if we only knew what would be in store for us when we boarded the plane.
We got to the hotel around 7 and were down in the Village by 9pm where I was able to connect with some amazing friends from my days in the city while I was going to art school. We went to all of the old bars we used to visit back in the day and I kept joking that we were going for seafood pancakes at 4am. Well, the image of us below was taken at 4am, after our Korean feast in K-Town. I think we look pretty good for what we tackled that night!
When we were outside the restaurant, Heather, my old roommate and one of my VERY best friends looked at me and said, 'Missi, there is our old building!' Me, clueless, how could I live in this building below for so many years and not know that it had amazing character and detail?!?! I loved walking by it a few times, oh the memories!
The next day was a rough one for Erica & I since we had little sleep and maybe one too many vodka drinks. It started off with a trip uptown to have brunch with my dear friend Damon & his partner Jeremy. I love that we can meet up after years apart and the conversation takes off and there is never a dull moment. After a few hours with the boys we headed back downtown to do a
little lot of shopping.
Monday started out with pouring rain so where better to go than The Dry Bar. They were gracious host and allowed a few of us bloggers to invade the space with our tresses so we could get all purdy for the events to come. Alli, the owner of Dry Bar even came in to greet us along with the architect that designed the space & two amazing gals from Joss & Main...it was perfect! Thank you all SO much for such a great start, now if the Dry Bar would only open up in Calgary (hint hint).
Oh, the pics from BlogFest, well, I am not going to lie...we might have played hooky from a lot of the events and the parties that we did attend I was too busy chatting, meeting, and having fun to snap pics (bad blogger, bad). But let me tell you this, the girls I knew I would love I did and I am so incredibly thankful that I was able to meet them. Although, I would have preferred if my first meeting with Tiffany was not at Starbucks when I was in my pajamas. Yep, that happened, but it will stay as one of the most memorable parts of the trip.
