Weekend Update

I realized on Sunday that it would be that last Sunday that was NOT a school night! It kind of bummed me out for a little but besides that I had a great weekend!

The boyfriend was at a Fitness convention in LA for 4 days, IdeaWorld Conference. And he won the "Boyfriend of the Year" award because he got APOLO OHNO'S AUTOGRAPH for me!!!!! That man of mine bought me Apolo's book and had him sign it for me! I'm soooo excited! I'm not one of those crazy Olympian fans but I love Apolo! Can't wait to read his book!
Yup he signed it!!

He was pretty tired after the conference...lol
Saturday was eventful! I went on my first ever blate (blog date) with Meg from henning love. It was so great to officially meet her and get to know her more. We met up at Gabbi's Mexican Kitchen in Old Town Orange. If you love Mexican food, then you will LOVE this place!! Yum! I'm so glad Meg suggested it because I will definitely be back.

After lunch and chatting a bunch we browsed some of Old Town's shopping. If you're an antique lover then you'll really enjoy the shops. I'm not quite there yet and don't appreciate antiques as much as I know I will later but they had some cool stuff!
 If you have an opportunity to meet a blogging bestie, definitely take it! It was funny because even though we didn't really know each other we still had a lot to talk about since we knew things from blogging. I really enjoyed our blate and hope school isn't too crazy so we can meet up again. 

Then Sunday was mainly spent clearing out my wardrobe and getting rid of clothes I don't wear, don't fit, and don't remember when I wore last. I was amazed at how much I got rid of and how much room I have now of clothes I actually like! I'm hoping this will help me get out of the "I have nothing to wear" funk. If you're going through this too I recommend reading What I Wore.

2 huge trash bags full of cloths and a bag of shoes(don't worry they were cheap
Sunday night I went with the boyfriend to his work banquet. It was nice to put names with faces and meet his work friends. He even received a "most outstanding" award voted by his peers. I'm very proud of him!
I'm starting to get pretty nervous for school! Thursday and Friday I have orientation with my new classmates so it's getting close!!  Eeeeek!

Did you have a good weekend? Anything fun?!
Have you every met a blogger friend in person?

How fun! And A+ to your boyfriend ;) I love the City of Orange too. Have you been to Felix's Cuban Restaurant? It's right at the circle.

That autograph is pretty awesome, you'll have to let us know how the book is!!

Oh, how wonderful! I'm glad you had so much fun. There are lots of blog friends that I would like to make real-life friends (not that they aren't, but you know what I mean!). I think it would be fabulous to meet in person. Major kudos on the closet clean-out. I really need to do that myself! Though it seems to me that no matter how many times I clear things out, I still have "nothing to wear". Congrats to your boyfriend on his award and for getting you that autograph!! Well done on his part. :)
