As I imagined, the Practical Wedding Meetup was an awesome day. There were four of us in Dallas (one of whom was sweet enough to give my broke-ass a ride who lives in the same area as I do and is originally from Chicago…oh, hello). It was a beautiful day, started out sunny and ended pretty chilly and windy on the patio of an Irish pub.
We talked about the book – mainly got recaps from the two who got a chance to read it. Then, for approximately the next six hours, we talked about everything else. Popular topics included: Pets, past and current relationships and friendships, things we love about A Practical Wedding, etc.
Beer and fish’n chips were consumed. Also, cake.
I love the “Exactly!” button from Alyssa! So cute!
Kristy brought us these (do I have to add freaking adorable…or do you get it?) wedding-elf ornaments. My favorite part is the beard. Also, you can see Tupac hangin’ out, getting ready to attack said ornament…and the vacuum with which Isaiah completely cleaned the apartment while I was gone for the day (right?).
Alyssa also brought A Practical Wedding magnets made from the header image of APW, something most of us see often enough (shown above) and these bookmarks from a recent suggested catchphrase, “Shame blasters Activate! Pew pew pew!” There was a second bookmark (not shown) that said, “Eff the WIC” on one side and “APW Army” on the other.
Too cute, right?
Anyways, I present: The girls from the Dallas meetup.
Did you get a chance to attend your local meetup? If you aren’t sure if you want to or are too nervous, I recommend it. Not every group can be as awesome as the Dallas group (feel free to roll your eyes dramatically), but there will be an awesome group of girls no matter what.
If you did…I wanna hear about it (if it’s on your blog, feel free to leave the link if you want!).
In the meantime, check out KWu’s awesome recap on A Jersey Hootenanny Wedding.
