Weekend Recap

This weekend, Sean and I had the pleasure of traveling to Scranton, PA to meet Jessica and Ken. I was anxious leading up to it as we were basically meeting strangers. Sean's co-workers kept on teasing him that his wife was crazy and how did I know that we were not arranging to meet serial killers.

{Dress, Necklace and Earrings: Forever 21 - Sandals: Target}

Luckily for us, I did not arrange for Sean and I to meet serial killers.

I'm not going to lie and say that it wasn't awkward because at first it totally was. But after our walk through the ghetto to get Mexican food it helped to break the ice.

We learned that if you decide to have a blog date that didn't happen in your town, you just might have to research said town because if not, you could be meeting in a small town that didn't have a huge mall, which was the case for us.

We did manage to find the most delicious Mexican restaurant to eat at. It was nothing to look at from the outside or the inside but the food was oh so good.

I'll say that it was a success. Jessica and Ken, it was nice to finally meet you!

Here are a few pictures from our blate:

When we were driving home we decided to stop and say hello to my little sister and my nephew since there was no way I was going to pass on by their town knowing that there is an adorable little boy who will shriek when he sees me. My sister was so happy and surprised to see me. Her reaction made my whole week!

{He was more concerned with playing in his little pool with his little friends. So cute!}


When we finally got home, we decided to meet up with some friends for some drinks and wings. I had the most amazing drink ever. The bartender whipped it up for me so it did not have a name. I made sure to get the recipe because it was so, so, so good. 2 shot Malibu rum, 3/4 shot blue Curacao and a splash of lime and pineapple juice. You're welcome.

Hope you all had fabulous weekends! ♥

Chrissy + Nate said...

Blog date! How fun! And Malibu with pineapple juice? Yummmyyyy!

YeamieWaffles said...

I'm so glad that the Blogger date was a success and it's great to hear that that kind of thing can actually work out. Great photos Faith, it's pretty cool that you guys were able to break the ice thanks to some delicious Mexican food, your nephew is so cute too!

PrettyPhysicist said...

Haha, I promise that our next blate won't be so awkward ... and I will never trust a city's Chamber of Commerce site again. :) It really was great to meet you and Sean ... and thankfully none of us are serial killers. ;)

Travel_The_World said...

Sounds like it was a successful trip/weekend.
The food looks so good as does the drink. I am looking forward to having an adult beverage after this little one arrives :-).

Jennifer said...

I love how people still think when you meet people off the internet, they're going to be serial killers. That cracked me up. Out of all the people I've met online over the years, I think only one was serial killerish. (o;

Glad you had a fun time with your blog friend!

And that drink looks amazing!!!!

toi said...

you look in that dress. the mexican food looks yummy. your little nephew is growing so well.

Heather (GurleeGirrl) said...

I love Malibu Rum with Pineapple Juice so your drink is probably even better.... YUM

You and Jess look to cute next to the headless lady (LOL).

Your nephew is adorbs - and I want his whale slide/pool.

Sunny said...

I love your outfit!! I totally saw those sandals at target, now I wish I would have bought them!

Carolyn said...

Sounds like a great weekend, and I'm now craving mexican food. Thanks for that. :)

CeCe said...

Scranton-isn't that where The Office supposedly is on that TV show? Ha. Glad you had a nice blate. Sometimes those hole in the walls produce the best food.

Morgan said...

Whenever I hear about Scranton, I immediately think of The Office, haha! Love that show. I'm glad you had a fun time meeting up with some bloggy friends! That's cool that you got to do that and Mexican food is always awesome. :)

Tricia said...

I'm glad your blog date went well. How nervewrecking it must be to meet a complete "stranger" that you kind of "know"!

Mandy said...

So fun!! Love this blate recap :-)

And your nephew, OMG! He's so cute! I love the black/white pic of you two.

And that drink. I.want.one.now!!!

Jessica Renee said...

That's so fun!! Can you come down to TX and meet me now? ;) I recently had a "blate" and we ate mexican too but didn't take even one picture. Dumb!

Makaila said...

Mrs. Pancakes said...

Your little nephew is too cute!!

How very neat that you got to meet a blog friend! I bet your sister was SO happy to see you, I know I would be if my sister did that. And...give me that drink! : )

Pegster said...

Well I am glad they were not serial killers because I would love to meet you one day and they would have ruined it for me of course.

I told my hubby about your meeting and he was like "Huh, you want me to meet your blog friends now?", well of course dear, someday, particularly if they are like Faith, I feel like I've known you forever :).

Ashley Marie said...

haha - sounds like QUITE the adventure!!! The very first blate I went one, my husband kept telling me I was crazy and how did I know I wasn't going to be meeting some 60 year old perv! Some people just have no faith in the human race lol

Monique said...

Fun, fun, fun you had a weekend jammed packed with goodness, my kind of weekend. Glad you found delicious food in the most unlikely place

LWLH said...

Your nephew is too freakin' cute!!

Papi's Girl said...

Desi said...

Love your dress and shows! You look beautiful! Yay for a successful blog blind double date, or blate as you called it :) I love the photo of you and your nephew and your hair looks so cute in it! And is it ok for me to want his pool/slide?!?! Thanks for the recipe for the blue drink... blue drinks are hard to beat :)

Desi said...

P.S. Come to Cincy so we can have a blate! :)
