knittybloggymeetup

I finally was able to meet up with Arianne from To Think Is To Create last night. I think she found me while reading the Chicago Moms Blog and she lives close by. We finally had the chance to have a knitting night together at Starbucks!

Arianne, let me just say that I think you are a delight and I am so excited to have a knitting friend! Here's a photo of the first knittybloggy club.

Hubby encourages me to go out, too, as he noticed how much happier I am after I get out and recharge my batteries. Even if it's just for an hour or two, it does help, I admit! And I make a point to be thankful for every time I can escape- no matter how short or long. I don't come back home saying I wish I could have stayed out longer. I just say how nice it was to get out. I am sure it's a blessing to my hubby to have a happy wife!

  1. I tend to go insane from time to time due to all the joys of motherhood. About a week ago I was having one of those days so hubby told me to go get some coffee. On the way out the door, my 4 year old asked where I was going. I told him, "Where crazy women go." And dog gone it if he didn't remember that line and repeat it to the in-laws. Kinda hard to play that one off. :)

  2. Yeah...I am so happy for you. I was having a rough week ..last week. and I realized I had not left the house in 6 days. No wonder I was going crazy (er) I made a note to myself. GET OUT OF HOUSE --at least twice a week in order to keep sanity. haha Tonight is my night out.

  5. How great is that to have found a new friend who enjoys the same hobby as you? That is great Steph!!

    I am about to have my first real escape and while it has taken me a while to realize that it is okay for me to want that, I am a little nervous about it. Silly really because I know that I am going to enjoy it very much and will come home completely refreshed.

  10. I had such a nice relaxing time with you , Steph. Sometimes it can feel weird when you meet someone in person that you've already met online, its like, "how do I act here, like we're already friends or like we are just meeting?". But you totally put me at ease and I loved our conversation. You are totally adorable and I can't wait to do it again.

    As for getting the time "off" from home, it was really needed on my end. The best part is that as I was leaving Sbux, I was actually excited to get back home to hubby and the kids. Its so nice to feel that way, and I need to make sure to always keep that balance.

  11. You are so lucky to be able to meet with bloggers in "real life"! There aren't many (or any) that I know of that live near me.

    Glad you made a new friend!

  12. A coworker of my hubby's met me at Starbucks one night to teach me to knit. We spent about 4 hours there and I had a blast. Unfortunately, without her to fix my messes, the knitting didn't take. I was bummed!

    It is good to get a night out, isn't it? I need one!

    I totally agree...we have to have our times to recharge our batteries...it makes us happier and be better moms and wives in the process! :)

  17. Oh yes, little nights out -- even if to go grocery shopping alone -- really help. And what a nice outing this was -- a new friend, knitting and Starbucks. Does it get any better?
