Blate in San Antonio.

Last Sunday, I had my third blate (blog date). The first two times I was nervous but this time around I had no hesitation. Of course, Sean tried to mess with my head and say stuff like, "Let's hope you don't end up in a ditch" And "How do you know she's even real?" My brilliant response, she has a blog and Instagram (lol) which I proceeded to show him. "You do know people fake that stuff, right?" he responded. "Well, I don't think she is because she's been keeping up a front for a very, very long time" I replied with my fingers crossed. I really hoped since she was going to be picking me up for our date since Sean had to work Sunday evening and had to take the rental.

Well, I'm happy to report that Jennifer is as real as they come! As soon as we saw each other, we greeted one another with huge smiles and big hugs. I felt like I was just catching up with an old friend that I hadn't seen in a while. I don't think we were silent for more than a few seconds. We had so much fun and had so much in common. I was really, really excited to find out that she was also a mayo hater.

Jennifer took me to her favorite Mexican restaurant (Jen, I can't remember the name, boo to me!). When we were seated I said, "I'm going to take pictures if you don't mind." And she looked at me with a serious expression and said, "I would be insulted if you didn't". Tell me that's not the best response. Seriously, all I need in this life is friends that are bloggers! She also showed me how to eat flour tortillas properly. When I first saw her doing it I was confused and asked her, "what are you doing?" And I think she looked at me like I had grown two horns. She proceeded to show me. You get butter and you spread it on the flour tortilla and then you add hot queso dip on top and then you roll it up. YUMMY! So good! Now I understand what she meant when she said you could just have that with chips and dip and call it a night.

After dinner, we went to a bookstore where she convinced me that I had to get four books. I was hesitant because "not shoes" but in the end I got them because she said that I had to give Netflix a break and yeah, I kinda do. Jen, I read last night ... no Netflix!

After the bookstore we went and saw "Blended" and we both laughed and cried OK, fine we did cry. We thought the movie was hilarious and so good! And then it was time to say goodbye.

I think I should note that Sean tried to call me several times but I was in the theatre not checking my phone. Finally he texted me, "All good?" And I responded, "Not in a ditch." To which he responded, "thank God!"

Jennifer thank you so much for such a fabulous time! You are such an incredible person and I am thrilled to have been given the opportunity to meet you. It is still so strange to me that if it were not for our blogs we never would have met. I hope that when you one day make the trip to NYC you'll let me know!

I am SO BUMMED I wasn't home this weekend! San Antonio is like 2 hours from my house. I could've met y'all! Did you eat at Mi Tierra for dinner? Oh my YUM! Or did you eat on the Riverwalk? Needless to say, I'm bummed that I didn't get to go on a "blate" with you, but next time you're in Texas... let me know!

I'm glad that you and Jenifer had such a great experience with the meet up. I think it's nice how bloggers are finding that they have so much in common, becoming friends and even meet in the real world and those tortillas looks delicious...

FriendlyVirgo said...

That's great! I have yet to meet a blogger. Not because of fear, but because I never had the opportunity. That should be a goal of mine for the supper. lol Food looks great!
