Going on a first blate is like...

Going on a blate (blog-date) is a lot like going out on a real first date. You want to make a good impression so you have to think twice about your outfit, you want to be on time so you leave early, on your drive you start thinking about topics you could talk about in case of an awkward silence and then you start sweating because you are nervous and have to blast the AC, finally you pop in a piece of gum and head in...
As it turns out there was absolutely nothing for me to be nervous about because Erin was awesome and just as fun loving as she appears on her blog. We had planned on going to Ruby Tuesdays as a healthier option, but last minute decided Mexican would be much more fun. We ate chips and salsa, sipped on drinks and chatted non-stop like we were long lost friends catching up. We are definitely meeting up again, but next time we are roping in our husbands!
So far every single blate I've been on has been amazing. Have you ever been on a blate? Were you nervous?

I've been on two and my next one is in a few weeks! I always get a little bit nervous, but like you said it's always for nothing...they were both just the sweetest :)

Good luck roping y'all's husbands in, haha!

I'm so glad you guys had a great time! I definitely was nervous the first time I went on a "blate" but it turned out to be really great too! :)

I have met other bloggers before, but it has all been through mutual friend situations or specific blog related events. I've never actually set up a hang out time with another blogger that I didn't know beforehand. I bet it would be fun!

i've never been on one before, but i live so far away from anyone that i've met in the blogging community so...unless someone is willing to fly down (we DO have GORGEOUS sugar white beaches here!) or drive several hours! ;)

Y'all are so cute!! I love when blates go smoothly! I've only been on two, but they were both fabulous!
