Remember how I talked about how much fun I had co-hosting and getting to meet fresh bloggy faces back in Fall? Well, I was lucky enough to do it allll over again with the DFW Blogger Spring Meet Up!
Thanks to the lovely Nicole of Three 31 who put together this whole get together, we enjoyed a wonderful time bowling, mingling, and sipping delicious drinks at Lucky Strike in Fort Worth., a swanky bowling establishment that offers a full menu and a tempting drink list. See that Strawberry Basil Mash pictured there? It was DELISH.
We each took turns bowling the occasional strike and the ever-present gutter ball. Between turns we swapped blog stories and caught up on what we’ve all been doing both on and off the virtual grid.
Nicole was kind enough to provide cute little bowling awards for us to look forward to throughout our playing. I somehow managed to receive the top bowling champion award, which I find impossible since I’m typically the queen of gutters, but hey, I won’t complain! I guess these gals just bring out my beginners’ luck. 😉
We finished off the good time with dinner at Brownstone Kitchen across the street. The decor of the restaurant was understated and classy, in my opinion.
After an extreme case of indecisiveness between sandwiches, crab cakes, and other mouth-watering choices, I finally decided on the Pomegranate brushed hen with roasted potatoes and green beans. The chicken was a bit over-cooked, but the seasoning and pomegranate glaze was uh-mazing. We were offered complimentary blood orange mimosas toward the end of our meal, which was delicious, as well.

As if it wasn’t enough to get to see this girls AND win top bowling champion, I also happened to be lucky enough to walk away with a super cute “Sprummer” wreath (Spring/Summer), made by one of Nicole’s church friends. How cute is it that she implemented flip flops into the wreath’s design? And it contains two of my favorite summer colors: Pink and green! I guess the “luck” of the night just rubbed off of me when I was drawn for that!
All of us ladies left with swag bags filled with goodies and blogging tidbits at the end of the night. My goodie bag contained some Scentsy products (car freshener and room spray), lotion, discounts on various online stores, and cute handmade “Hello.” stationary notecards from Airing Your Dirty Laundry!
I seriously appreciate all the hard work and touches Nicole put in for this event (like the bag of socks for those [ahem, me] who forgot to bring some despite constant reminding, the notecards with our names and blogs on it for our place setting, the chevron/striped straws for our drinks). I had a much-needed wonderful time with these ladies, and still smile looking at all the photos. Now, the only question that remains is, when is the next one? 😉
