First Ever Blate.

Monday, July 30, 2012

So, this weekend was very relaxing, indeed. The highlight of it was having my first ever 'blate' (blogger-date) with Laura from Twirl! I was so excited to meet her and have been admiring her blog since finding it some months back. Laura is seriously one of the sweetest people, I enjoyed chatting with her SO much! We are kicking ourselves for not having this 'blate' sooner before she moves. But, I am just so glad we did meet up and get to know eachother! Laura and I did a photo session swap, and we had so much fun with it! I cannot wait to debut some of their photos I took :) I definitely appreciate Laura letting me "warm up" my hands again in photography because it has been some time since I've gotten to do a photo shoot on people. Those pictures are coming very soon!! 

Also, if you are in Birmingham or the surrounding area and are wanting some pictures taken, email me at britt{at}themagnoliapair{dot}com. I am doing some freebie sessions until my hands are completely "warmed up" again  and would LOVE to take your pictures  :) 

As for Friday night, we enjoyed dinner and drinks with friends and DVR'd the Olympics so we could catch it on Saturday day. 

Saturday, would you believe I actually did have some luck in persuading my husband to take me to H&M? Literally made my entire day! We were there for 1 1/2 hours, then drove right back to Birmingham! So worth it though, and I have some new things to do outfit posts in now, yay! Thanks for all the advice on Friday from you guys, it worked :) 

Also, Congrats to Shelly for winning the Shabby Apple Gift card! Thank you friend for entering! 

How was your weekend? I hope it was just the best! Happy Monday!

  1. How fun! I'm definitely going to be e-mailing you about the photo session - I haven't had Addi's picture professionally made since she was 1. Now that she's 2 1/2, I should prob look into it :)

  17. Man, I wished in the states, I would have met up with sooo many bloggers already.

    I love that you guys finally got to meet and that you enjoyed it so much. The first time I met another blogger here in SA, I was so nervous. haha
