A lil Throwback...From a Monday!

On Thursdays this January, I am sharing top posts from chosen by the readers!  Last Thursday, I shared the most viewed post of last year, 36 is....

Today I'm sharing another top post, Monday, Monday, Monday!  Seeing this as one of the most read posts of the year made my smile.  It detailed my time with my bloggy buddy, Deena!

Hope you enjoy this post this time around, too!

Happy Monday!  And it is a happy Monday for me, thanks to Columbus and a day off!

I think though that my "Fall FUNK" is in full effect.  Ugh...the days are getting shorter, the weather is turning colder, and am just not interested in doing much. The funk officially hit me on Saturday morning.  I just woke up to a super dreary day and feeling blah.  That is not to say I didn't have a fun weekend, because I did...but I'm just off I guess.  

I wasn't last Monday though, when I met my bloggy buddy Deena...IN REAL LIFE!!  You see, she was visiting New York City for the weekend with her husband and knew I didn't live too far from there, so she wanted to come visit me on Monday!  I was so excited.  

But actually I do live pretty far from the city.  HA!  I offered to meet Deena somewhere but she was very gracious and offered to travel my way, as she wanted to see where I lived.  I was super excited because I just love my town and couldn't wait to show it off.

Deena and I had a short visit, but it was a fun visit. I picked her up at the train and we came back to my place to have a glass of wine before we headed into town for sushi.  I was surprised when Deena mentioned that my house was nothing like she thought it would be!  And I loved that I was there when she had her first EVER pumpkin ale!  LOL Even though pumpkin ale and sushi don't really go! Actually that's a lie...pumpkin ale is just always good.

After yummy sushi and girl talk, Deena was back on the train and headed into the city.  Our time together was short, but I am so glad that Deena took some time out of her trip to visit  lil ol' me!  I felt like we had been friends forever and made me even more excited for Toronto in May, when I meet all my blended blog buddies!!

I don't have any pictures of my time with Deena....I think I was too nervous... except this one, which she actually texted me to use as my daily photo on Insta!  I'm @solitarylife101

But on Friday Deena recapped her trip!  Head on over to Shoes to Shiraz to read all about Deena's adventures in NYC and beyond! {Here}

Thanks Deena for coming to visit me!  I can't wait to see you again, in your neck of the woods! #Toronto2017

  1. This was my fave post that you did last year, but then again, I'm biased.....

  2. I seriously have a huge goal of a meetup in 2017!! Surely I can get close to at least one of my fave bloggers right?

  3. So sweet! Cannot wait to meet you in Toronto!


Thanks so much for taking the time to post comments! They make me smile so big!
