Atypical.

Things I Don't Typically Do:
  • Travel alone
  • Step on other people's toes
  • Invite myself places
  • Go to New Jersey
  • Invade the personal space of others
  • Crash with non-family members
  • Meet people from the Internet

But, this weekend, I'm doing all of that. 

Because when you mention how you need, not want, but need an NYC trip, and your blog BFF who lives just across the river from your favorite city maybe-jokingly-maybe-not invites you up, well, you run with it.


So, between the hours of 11am and 5pm today, I'll be on a train wondering things like,  What if I don't talk enough? What if I'm annoying? What if I take too long to get ready in the morning? What if I wake up too early? What if I fall asleep too early? Will she even like me?!

And then at 5pm she'll pick me up from the train station and everything will be good and fine and fun. We'll do yoga and go into the city and run all over. She'll drive me all the way to the outskirts of Princeton just to calm my fears about, oh, just the biggest race of my life. We'll probably blog. We'll definitely blog.

So those are my weekend plans. A lot of things I'd normally do, just in a new/different place and with a new-but-not-really person. It's going to be a good one.

What are your weekend plans? What should I do on the train for 6 hours? Have you ever met up with a blog friend? I think the technical term is blate, but I kind of hate that word even more than the word blog so…no.

  1. Wasn't joking. :)
    1. Don't worry, I talk enough for the both of us. And I don't think silence is awkward anyway.
    2. No one on this planet will tell you I'm not annoying, so if you are, we're even.
    3. You probably won't and if you do, hey, more time for my coffee.
    4. Eh, you know how to work the TV and I have a packed bookcase. Help yourself.
    5. Everybody falls asleep earlier than me. It's cool.
    6. I already do, but also, ditto!?
    See ya soon! The snow's already falling in welcome of you :)

  2. Yay!! So excited for you. I've never met any of my blogger friends even though I've had some since I blogged way back in the day. I would be so nervous too, but like you said, once you get there it will be all good and I'm a little jealous of all the fun you two are going to have. Also, the word blate makes me think of the sound sheep make haha

  3. I don't even want to think about DC because someone has to get on a plane on her own and she is not looking forward to it. But. I can almost guarantee you won't be stepping on her toes or invading her space - you guys are gonna have the BEST time and I cannot wait to hear allllllllllllll about it. Have fun!!!!

  7. Sounds fun! I've never met a fellow blogger. I would...but like you I'd be really nervous. I don't know why exactly, but I think it would have something to do with me being slightly scared of the internet. Also, I'd have all of the same worries as you.

    I can't wait to read a recap of your meeting, I'm sure you guys will have fun!

  9. Enjoy your weekend!!! I was the same way when I went to visit Kayla and Erin in Cincinnati. It was so fun to book and look forward to and then on the plane I was like crap what if they don't like me?! But it was just as great as I had imagined hanging out together :) Can't wait to see the pictures and read the recap!

  12. I am a firm believer that getting out of your comfort zone is always a good thing! I hope you had fun :) Are you doing Ironman Princeton 70.3? I might do that one!! Is it your first 70.3? I've heard it's a great race and very pretty!
