Wait, Bloggers are Real?

I got together with a handful of fellow DC area home bloggers for brunch today and discovered that bloggers are, in fact, real people. And amazing people at that. There's something very cool about putting a dozen strangers who have one thing in common, in a room and then looking up to see that somehow three hours have passed in the blink of an eye.
Back Row, standing: Katelyn, Kyra, Shannon, Kathy, Angie, Andi, and me
Front Row: Cassie, AmyRenee (behind Amy), Sarah, Laurie, and Melissa
We had a blast eating and chatting at Melissa's home, star of the HOUSEography blog, recently of Young House Love fame. Melissa gave us a tour, which I absolutely loved because our homes are so similar. There are only so many styles of post-war homes in Arlington and Melissa and I have similar "models." Right down to the original bathroom tiles, thankfully black and white, not pink or seafoam. What I loved most, is that she chose the exact same tile for her new basement bathroom that we have on our short-list for our basement bathroom remodel. S and I may need to invite ourselves back for drinks so I can show him the real-life version.

These ladies' blogs are definitely worth checking out. I'd love to add a list of DC area bloggers to our sidebar, so email me if you're blogging in the greater DC area and want to be added.

I brought a sausage and goat cheese frittata that took forever to bake last night. I'll post the recipe for it next weekend and make a few recommended changes. Speaking of breakfast foods, be sure to check out next Tuesday's Tuesday treats when I'll post the recipe for the most delicious sticky buns I made for S before he left for a long trip recently. So sticky, so amazing. I wish we had leftovers....

Thanks for a great day, Melissa! Let's do it again soon; I'll bring our favorite boozy baked french toast next time. xoxo
