My First Blogger Meet-Up!

Hi Dolls,

Tuesday night I had so much fun at my first Blogger Meet-up!  It was here in Jacksonville and a big thank you goes out to Alicia of Fashion by Alicia for organizing our meet-up. 

Here is what I was wearing for the evening:

  • Jumper:  Michael Kors

  • Belt: Steinmart

  • Shoes:   LAMB “Rodericks”

Our meet-up was at Nippers Beach Grill and there were 8 of us who met for an fun evening of great food and lots of laughs!

Me and Tiffany (A Reason To be Fabulous)



We had a wonderful time and agreed to try and meet up once a month!  We have a great group of bloggers in North Florida/South Georgia and I can’t wait to meet up again.  Now on to the food!!! 


Our meet-up was at Nippers Beach Grille and the Executive Chef/Owner is Kenneth Gilbert who was a contestant on Bravo’s Top Chef a few seasons ago….love that show!!!

Here is the “Top Chef” himself and I!

A couple of the ladies had fish tacos.  I didn’t taste them but they looked very pleasing to my eyes!

 This was my blackened salmon dish with crawfish, rice with peas, collard greens, and a creamy sauce……….guys….. all I can say is that I had to force myself to get a to go dish to prevent myself from eating ALL OF IT!!!  It was DELICIOUS!!!

 The majority of the girls ordered the different varieties of mac and cheese.  Crab Mac and Cheese, Jerk Chicken Mac and Cheese, and Pulled Pork Mac and Cheese which is what Leslie was getting ready to dig into here.  I tasted the Pulled Pork and Jerk Chicken Mac and Cheese and they were both very good!

Nicole had the pleasure of indulging in a Key Lime Parfait!!!  Looks good doesn’t it???

Im happy I had the opportunity to meet some of my favorite bloggers.  We all had an amazing time and look forward to meeting again.  That’s all for now dolls.  I shall return very soon!  Enjoy the rest of your week!

    Nice event! Everyone looks lovely and the food looks delicious. I love your jumpsuit. Random thought: You and Prissy could switch shoes and both of your outfits would still be H-O-T!!!!!7eventh Letter

    Okay, the food looks delicious! So cool that you met Kenneth. I remember him getting offed so early in that "Top Chef" season. I stopped watching after that. True story. lolol. Anywho, love your jumper! Cool you met Prissy. Really like her blog. Isn't it amazing to meet up with local bloggers who have the same passion that you do? One of the best perks of blogging.
