Midwest Bloggers Meetup

Lynne and I attended the Midwest Bloggers Meetup in Naperville, IL this past weekend.
It was held at a cute little shop called Room 363.
There were 25 bloggers gathered from four different states:  Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan and Kentucky.
I was able to meet a few bloggers I have followed for quite some time and I met a few new ones.
It was a nice gathering.  Everyone introduced themselves and talked a bit about our blogs.  We had some lovely refreshments, chatted, mingled and shop around the store.

Several people brought goodies for the goodie bags.  I received some very lovely things.  Here is a picture of my favors.

After we left the shop, we met up with our dear friend Penny and enjoyed lunch at Five Guys.
The group had a few more things planned, however, we headed over to Bedford Park for a quick visit with Jackie, Joffrey and Joslyn.  I was lucky enough to get JoJo up from her nap to get in a quick squeeze and a kiss.  She is so adorable.!  Getting so big so quick.

A great weekend get away.  A nice event.  Thanks to Jennifer Rizzo for your organizing efforts.
