Meet me in St. Louis

Two weekends ago, I drove to St. Louis to spend time with these ladies -- most of whom I had never met before in my life, other than online.

My grandmother told me to bring mace with me (a lot of it). My mom worried.

And I had a BLAST!!

11 women -- with one thing in common -- all of us had babies born in November 2007. Two of us had babies born on the same day (maybe more...). Each of us have a love for life, cupcakes, crafting and fun.

Much of the weekend was spent getting to know each other. There was a lot of talking, a lot of giggling, a lot of late night coffee drinking. Perhaps not as much crafting as we had originally intended or wished for.

I spent the weekend with this wonderful machine:

The Cricut... a dangerously wonderful machine that I may have to put on my Christmas wish list for this year....

All in all, in was a wonderful weekend. Much too short -- next time, I'll be sure to work in a long weekend so I can enjoy more time with the ladies!!
Thanks for the great time, and to Emily for opening up her home and her city for us!

Isn't it crazy how online friendships form? Did you all meet through Baby Center? I had a similar group on BabyFit but would have been WAY too nervous to meet them in person. :)
