Precedent Has Been Set - FFTL Link-Up

Welcome to another Tuesday morning around the blogosphere, ladies! I'm sure there's a lot going on in terms of other link-ups, and giveaways and who even knows what else. But this girl is just excited about this little link-up here with y'all! I love reading y'all's posts every week, and seeing your answers to some of our firsts. This has been a fun link-up to host, and I'm still having fun with it every week! So let's get going on today's topics:

First blate you went on (or who you would like to meet if you haven't done this yet)
First daily blog you visit from your RSS feed, blog reader or blog roll

First blate I went on
This was just a couple of weeks ago, when I finally met up with my dear Angie from Happy Bean for a lunch blate one day. (For you non-bloggers, that means blogger + date = blate.) We found each other's blogs by chance one day (I don't even remember how or when) but it turns out we're not only around the same age, but we both live in Tally! So obviously there was an instant bond.

Then driving to work one morning, I just happened to see her walking across the street downtown, but wasn't 100% sure it was her. So I creepily texted her and asked if she was wearing a pink dress that day, and was she downtown, and it was her! And then we made plans for lunch the next week :) So since we both work downtown, we just walked to a nearby restaurant, 101 Restaurant, and met for lunch for some super yummy salads, and we had such a great time. We talked about weddings (she's also a bride-to-be with a really cute engagement story), and our men, and family, and all sorts of things. And it wasn't the least bit awkward for a first 'date.' ;) And sadly, even though I took pictures of everything else, we were too busy chatting to be good bloggers and take a picture together... Next time, we'll make sure that doesn't happen, and we'll snap one right away. 

And now since we had such a great time on both of our first blates, I'd say the precedent has been set for all our future blates with each other, and with other bloggers! Definitely a good first blate :)
She was so sweet and brought me an engagement present, which was a yummy candle!

First daily blog I visit 
No matter what the title of the post is, I'm always interested in what Whitney has to say. She is so funny and I always love reading her stuff. She's also a fellow Florida State fan, so of course she gets extra points for that. A few other 'big bloggers' that I always enjoy reading are: PinkLouLou, Lovely Little Things and So Shay. If you want funny stories about and conversations with a cute 7-year-old, I suggest you check out Smacksy. And then of course I always read every post my blog-friends write: Robin, Erin, Kaitlyn, Kayla, Rachel & sooo many more...I love this blogging world!

If you'd like to join in on this fun link up, check out the super simple 'rules' below, and get to writing! Can't wait to see all the new link ups this week, meet new friends, and read y'all's posts!

1. Write your own post about this week's topics & link up with us!
2. Put the new button on your post or somewhere on your blog
