Hoboken Blogger Meet-Up

Last night I stepped out of my comfort zone, away from my phone and Candy Crush Saga (kidding — but not really. please tell me I’m not alone in this addiction!?) and headed to Teak on the Hudson for a Hoboken Blogger Meet-Up.

HUGE thank you to Lynda for setting up this get together. I had already been reading a couple of the girls blogs for a while now, so it was great to finally meet them in person! It was also great to meet some unfamiliar faces and add the new-to-me blogs to my reading list.

We met at 7 to get a drink while waiting for everyone to arrive – The bar area at Teak is beautiful so if you ever come here for dinner, I suggest getting there early for a cocktail.

Once we sat down for dinner, Lynda handed out chocolate to thank everyone for coming. She knows the way to a girls heart!

Jillian and I couldn’t decide between sushi or the Chilean Sea Bass that our waiter had talked up during his intro, so we decided to go with both! We split the tuna cashew and avocado roll (with brown rice) and each ordered the Miso Glazed Chilean Sea Bass with zucchini/carrot ribbons and mashed potatoes.

Both choices were amazing and I’m pretty sure I was the first one at the table to clean my plate. I was legit starving and our meals didn’t arrive til around 10pm (I’m usually getting in bed #granny). Don’t think I didn’t polish off that candy bar shortly after dinner was done 😉

It was so great to meet with a group of smart and beautiful women who have similar interests as myself — Whether it be shopping, fitness or healthy food, we all found something to talk about and had a really great time. I’m looking forward to the next meet-up!

Clockwise: Jillian, Amanda , Jen, Alexandra, Kristin, Tiffany, Lynda, Brittany, me — and Sabrina who must have gotten cut off on accident :/
