A Blate...Cincinnati Style

This weekend was definitely a good one. Not only did I get to go ziplining with my sweet husband, but I also got to meet one of my favorite bloggers, Julie from the Smitten Mintons.

I've followed Julie's blog for about a year now, but with her living in California and me being here in Ohio I never thought we would ever get to actually meet. To my surprise Julie was going to be in Cincinnati for a family reunion and so we set up a blate...Cincinnati style. Her husband Doug is a huge baseball fan so we met at the Reds Stadium for a game. I also got to meet 2 other bloggers Brittany and Emma who also live in Cincinnati. We had a great time showing off our city!
Not only was the weather amazing, but we got to see a Red's Victory and see a free fireworks show!

Julie's first Skyline cheese coney! She loved it!

11 strike outs at the Reds Stadium=Free pizza and ice cream for everyone! You just can't beat that!
 Julie and I were obviously excited about our free food! Speaking of free stuff...Drew ended up catching a tshirt in his baseball glove as well. Win and win.
We ended the night sitting out at Fountain square with Graeters ice cream in hand. It was a wonderful blate! Isn't blogging just the best?

First time to the blog and I hope you don't mind if I stick around!

Isn't zipling the best? Your blate looks fabulous. It's funny because I actually met Julie at a San Diego blogger get together. Looking at your pictures makes me want to go on a blate too, ha.
