Bawstin Meets Texas


Hi y'all! I feel like I can say the word y'all now because I DID travel to Texas and all to meet some fabulous bloggers. Unfortunately not miss Stephy, though that little meet-up needs to be happening soon! I'm talking about meeting up with these two amazing, adorable, hilarious, fantastic girls:

Sabrina from Sabrina Says and Shalyn from So Shay!! EEEEK! Looking at this picture just makes me squeal with excitement! So anyway, when I started my blog, Young and Fabulous, in my old job's little cubicle, I literally just thought it was going to be me typing my day to day activities which could include anything from eating dry cereal, to going out dancing with my friends, to idolizing Lil Wayne. What I didn't know was that the first week of September I'd be clicking "book flight" on Travelocity to go down to Austin, Texas later that month to visit these biddies!


And also while there, we got the pleasure to meet up with Jenni!! From Story of my Life!! :-) 
It was one HUGE blate!


I feel like I should let you all know that first of all, I'm afraid of flying, especially alone. I don't know how I managed to get on that plane by myself. Perhaps it was the fact that I was sitting next to two old hippies that were going to a big concert in Austin, or the fact that I knew I was going to be greeted in the airport by two girls who were sweet as pie, also which I've never met.


My boyfriend, Kurt, stalked their blogs for days, reading through every post in order to trust that they were in fact, real people, and not slimy men who wanted to pick me up at the airport and bring me to a dark cave by the Mexican border. So since you might be wondering, was it awkward? Not one tiny bit. We clicked instantly. We constantly had stuff to talk about. We talked until the wee hours of the morning, went dancing, shopping, out to eat, and talked about life, love and LAUGHTER!


I didn't want to leave these two amazing girls. I remember sitting on the plane as it was taking off back to Boston. I wanted to cry because it hurt my little heart that these girls lived so far from me. Sabrina, across the country in Washington, and Shay, halfway across the country in Texas!

But the best part about this whole experience is the memories I made with these girls. And even though they live far away from me, I know for a FACT that it wasn't the last time we will get together. Soon enough! I can feel it! Anyway, this is my advice to you. If you have a close connection with a blogger, don't even second guess yourself about meeting them. DO IT. It will open your eyes to a new world, new people, and new experiences! There are so many more amazing girls I can't wait to meet and I'm happy to say nothing will stop me! Not even if I have to get on a tiny 4-seater plane! (Ok that might stop me...but you get it!)

One of the best experiences of my entire life!
