A few weeks ago I sent out an email to a few Cincy bloggers about meeting up one night for dinner. Fast forward a few weeks and over 50 email exchanges and we ended up having 13 Cincy bloggers together name tags and all! (Who cares if we got weird looks for wearing name tags and taking tons of pictures of our food.)

We met at a local Mexican restaurant and had a blast talking about everything under the sun. I loved seeing so many of the faces I see on my computer screen daily in real life and meeting some sweet new bloggers as well. The blogging community is just so amazing!

Our 2 hour dinner ended with free cupcakes and I have to gush for a minute. Gigi's cupcakes generously donated some of their fantastic cupcakes for our first meet up. We were all oohing and ahhing over how beautiful each cupcake was and then...we tried them.
There were so many amazing flavors we basically just took bites and passed them around the table. My favorite cupcake of the night was the Strawberry Shortcake cupcake. Thank you Gigi's, you made our night that much sweeter. We all left smiling and stuffed.

It was such a great night and I can't wait to do it again! If you are a blogger and live in Cincinnati just let me know if you want to be added to the email list for our next meet up.

*Thanks Erin and Jax for being good little bloggers and taking amazing pictures with your fabulous cameras!*
