My Weekend: Just What The Doctor Google Ordered

(shhh ... but that was the first time I held our Book Club book in my hands.)
I went to my first ever Book Club on Friday night and it was so much fun! I wasn't the only one who didn't read the book - it was pretty much 50/50 - which was a huge relief because when I walked into the gathering I felt like an impostor.

I met Christa, the wonderful girl who was hosting the Book Club, through Sami - and Alexes and Darlene came, too.

The Blog World is such a silly and strange world - I mean I met Sami and Darlene through our blogs, through our computers, almost two years ago, but we all hit it off instantly when we met in real life a couple of months ago.

The world really is a small town!

On Saturday I spent FOUR hours talking with Kate, Bri and Erika.

As a part of my sponsorship options, I recently started organizing a virtual blate (blogger date) where we either chat as a group or one on one to discuss all things blogging.

Because, you know, Brutus and TJ can only listen to me talk about blogging so much, you know?

But we had great two-way conversations and I think we all left feeling very inspired and motivated to continue doing what we do on our blogs. The general take away was that 1. Blogging is weird and 2. It's better to be a voice rather than an echo.

On Sunday, Sami and I jumped in the car and drove about an hour so that I could have my first Krispy Kreme experience. Apparently it's illegal on many accounts to have never eaten one of these doughnuts before, so when we saw the "Red Light" was on, we were on our way before the clock even struck 9:30am.

Sami made sure to let the workers know when we arrived that it was my first time, so we were handed two "hot off the press".

I went up to the counter with my debit card to pay for our goodness, and I still don't fully understand why they give away FREE doughnuts, but I'm not complaining.

Oh, and Krispy Kreme doughnuts are 100% fat free, sugar free, gluten free, and calorie free, in case you were wondering.


Cheers to a brand new week!

  4. "It's better to be a voice than an echo!" Love that! My mister really challenged me last night with my blog. I'm sure I'll ask you all what you think on Thursday's happy hour hangout with Erin & Helene. And yes, Krispy Kremes are basically your best bet for meeting any health related new year's resolutions!

  7. Haha I can't imagine going to a book club without having read the book, but I guess it really is just an excuse to have a girls night! So fun. I hope y'all didn't come down to the Springs for doughnuts and not tell me!

  9. your post sounds a little more upbeat, happy to see you back in the grove. I love those gluten free,calorie free, fat free desserts. Suoer cool a book club where you do not need to read the book, liking that concept. I love books but mostly trashy ones that don't make a book club list

    1. Thanks my love :) Girls weekend was definitely needed! Yeaaaaaah, fat/calorie/gluten/sugar free desserts are guilt free, too!! I enjoy being a part of a book club where you don't have to read the book - much less pressure that way ;)

  18. Love book clubs. So much fun. And I am a Dunkin girl, except when that light is lit! No comparison. They have the kk challenge here each year and you run two miles to the KK, get a dozen donuts, scarf them down and then run another 2 miles. I am pretty sure that trail must be lined with trash cans. or at least I hope.
