Philly Moms Blog Launch Party

This past Thursday, Graco had the privilege (seriously it was!) of sponsoring the Philly Moms Blog launch party. Although the torrential downpours kept some partygoers away, most braved the intense humidity (that explains my hair in the pictures!) and I-76 to attend one heck of a party.

I am happy to have added these fabulous ladies to my list of “IRL” friends:
Colleen from Classy Mommy
Whitney from Mommies with Style
Jo-Lynn from Musings of a Housewife
Beth from Total Mom Haircut
Sarah from Genesis Moments
Melissa from Girly Mama
Shannon from You Ott 2 Know
Amy from Occupation: Mom
Teresa from Elebelly
Cecily from Uppercase Woman
Leslie aka Lollie Peep
Mary Fran from Everyday Adventures
Sue from 1 Year Apart
Julie as herself
Lynette also as herself
Kristie from Mommy’s High Heel Shoes
Shannon and Anna Maria at PBS Kids Sprout (our hosts for our wonderful evening)

Here’s a great video from Sarah of the event (I think her mad editing skilz kept me from looking too stupid!)

One of the best things of the evening was a scavenger hunt we did. We found out some very interesting tidbits about each other.  For instance, we found out that not one of the Philly Mom bloggers (or at least of those present) was a vegetarian. I bet that’s a stark contrast from our sister sites on the west coast! It was a great way to get people up and mingling and checking each other for tattoos that might be hiding in undisclosed locations :)

We were excited to feature the My Ride 65 and give away lots of other goodies.

And of course the entire evening went off without a hitch because I showed up Erin did everything! (thank you Erin!!) 

I think this night certainly helped stave off a bout of seasonal affective disorder (it’s been quite gloomy here for weeks!) and helped bring an online group closer together. Thanks to everyone that came- I’m sure these ladies will be getting back together again soon!

    What fun! I’d LOVE to meet Jo-Lynne {Musings of a Housewife} and Colleen {Classy Mommy} and several of the others…

    If you ever want to host a meet-up in AZ, I’ll help you plan, k? :)

    P.S. I am not a vegetarian.

    That sounded fun, and thanks for listing all those Philly-area blogs. I’m just outside the suburbs, so it’s nice to see other bloggers from my general area.
