Best Blind Date Ever

On Saturday, I had a blind date with two of my favorite bloggers Erika of Small Shop and Irene of DesignStiles.  We drank lots of wine, gorged on comfort food and then went drunk shopping, which is the best kind of shopping!

This is us at the beginning of our date. We were very civilized at this point.

And then wine happened.

And sweet potato fries and fancy roasted mushroom and truffle oil flatbread happened.

And pretty soon we let loose, although still fairly civilized.

FOUR whole hours and more wine later we walked to a little boutique not far from the restaurant and took loads of pictures. We even asked the salesgirl to snap shots of the three of us, which I ordinarily would never have the balls to do. But Irene offered to swiffer the floor so it was all good!

Seriously though, it’s incredible how the Internet can bring people together. I feel like I’ve known these girls forever and there wasn’t a single awkward moment. We laughed really loud and everyone in our vicinity probably wanted to punch us. Those are the best kind of dates. I heart you girls!
