THANK YOU – you guys gave me a HUGE dose of social courage, and I ended up having a great time at the meet-up tonight. 🙂
But first… I had to get through work. I ate a tiny bowl of Grape Nuts around 4:00 PM.
After work, I rushed around to get ready for the girls’ meet-up. One thing I have trouble with is putting on about 1 million outfits and then settling on the first one! So, I swore I was not going to do that tonight because I didn’t want to be late (Meghann can attest to my lateness).
I got to the restaurant about 10 minutes early. Taking your advice, I had some "liquid courage" in the form of Amber Bock.
Soon enough, the girl I know from the running club + there other ladies showed up. Everyone was really nice and the conversation felt natural!
I had 1 more beer and ordered the Cuban Sandwich + a side salad. The sandwich was huge, and I think nerves got the best of my appetite, so I only ate 1/2.
Have you heard of this great website called www.MeetUp.com?
MeetUp has social groups in EVERY city, and there are TON in Orlando that cater towards mid-twenties to mid-thirties that I never even knew existed. All of these girls are from the same group (called Sex in the City) and they do fun things like Bingo night, Wig Out at the bars, and brunches. I’m going to join that, too! 🙂
For everyone who said they needed a little extra SOCIAL COURAGE in their lives, check out MeetUp.com! I hope you find a group to join!
After 2.5 hours of GABBING, I came home and ate 3 Cadbury squares…. and now I’m ready for bed!
That’s great you had a fun night!
