Hopsy and I met in New York when we both attended a taping of the Martha Stewart Lilly Pulitzer show (and a blogger night at the Lilly townhouse that Hopsy organized). If you need ideas for decorating or party planning Hopsy is your girl!
The same weekend in New York I met KAG and Alyssa of A.Tierney , Preppy Sue (I don't think she's blogging anymore), the Pink Washingtoniette, Horse, Hound, and Home, and Erin (formerly Prep E Girl)
Angela of Sweet Tea Diaries and I met for the first time summer 2009. I will probably cry for weeks (months!) if and when she moves back to the south. She made the cutest nautical cupcakes for my trunk show and was with me when we met Michael Weatherly.
Leeann of Join the Gossip and I bonded over Vampire Diaries. Two years ago I got an email from Angela (above) saying that one of her blog readers loved the show too and I should invite this girl (Leeann) to the PaleyFest event if I still had an extra ticket. Well I emailed Leeann right away and we met for the first time at the event. We've now become good friends and are partners in crime at local events. Leeann loves TV as much as I do and can always make me laugh. We could talk for hours!
With Rachel Bilson (wish she was my friend too ;)
Leeann and I met Annemarie of Brunch at Saks at the Hart of Dixie event last fall. We hit it off instantly and have attended two other events together (Romeo & Juliet Gossip Girl launch and Pretty Little Liars set visit). I want Annemarie to be my decorator when I move into a house (way in the future!). She has amazing style and always looks put together!

At the trunk show that I hosted I finally met One Fabulous Mom and Angry Julie. It was so fun finally meeting them in person! They are both supermoms!

I met Sarah of Belle on Heels and Annabel Manners at a lunch with Angela when Sarah was in town visiting. We had such a great time chatting about fashion, blogs, TV and everything in between! Annabel Manners was also at the Hart of Dixie event-it was great reconnecting after a couple of years!

I also had a great meetup with DC/VA/MD bloggers when I lived in DC. I miss those girls!
I love meeting blog friends in person! Have you ever been to a meetup or met local bloggers in person?
