My First Meet-Up

I went to my first doll meet-up today.  It was a very spur-of-the-moment trip since I just found the group (and found out about the meet-up) on Friday, but I'm so glad I went!

My boyfriend spent the night Monday night since he was going out of town on Tuesday to visit some friends.  So the plan was that we'd both get up early and both get an early start on our trips.  For me to get to the meet-up, it would be a three hour drive.  So to get there at 9am, I'd have to leave at 6am.  At first that seemed like a good idea, but as we were sitting up at 12:30am discussing how not tired we were, Boyfriend and I decided maybe getting a later start wouldn't be the end of the world.  :p  So I left the house at 8:00ish, and let Boyfriend sleep in a little longer.  I made really good time and got to the meet-up before 11:00.  ^_^

Everyone was super friendly and welcoming.  I'm very shy and quiet until I get used to people and open up a bit, but they all seemed pretty understanding and were very nice to me.  Even though everyone else had obviously known each other for a while, I didn't feel like they were clique-y or that I was an outsider.

I brought Madeline and Kaelyn (my new Hujoo Berry).  Kaelyn was a big hit!  Everyone loved her and thought she was adorable.  There were soooo many pretty dolls of all types!  o___o  I couldn't believe my eyes.  There were over thirty dolls which was apparently the most of any meet-up the group had previously had.

I can't wait until I can make it to another meet-up.  Unfortunately I won't be able to make it to the August one, but maybe I can make it to the August Tea Party instead (it's a separate meet-up, but a lot of the members overlap apparently, and people come dressed up and bring dolls too).

Here is Kaelyn with someone's stuffed bunny.  We had to go get her one of her own on the way home.  (:
