Scary Mommy Book Signing & Blogger Dinner

Last night I had the honor of going to dinner and then a book signing with my amazing group of Mom Blogger friends and Jill Smokler of www.scarymommy.com. She wrote this hysterically funny book about motherhood, which any mom, mom-to-be or might-someday-be-a-mom should read!

Jill writes candidly about what it's really like to have children, and it was so refreshing to read such an honest take on motherhood. I can't recommend this book enough! Buy it for yourself, and then buy a copy for all of the other women in your life. But be fore-warned: if you choose to read the book you will not do any laundry, cleaning, or child-rearing until you finish. It's that good!

As you can imagine, our dinner with almost 20 mom bloggers was full of laughter, conversation, wine and good food. We all enjoyed ourselves, and I loved having an opportunity to chat with Jill about her book and her blog. She was so much fun, and so sweet.

                 Here I am with Liz from Learning to Juggle  and Melissa from Filling Our Bucket

                                                 Our table full of mom bloggers!


                             Later we headed over to Barnes and Noble for the book signing.
                                   Here I am with the fabulous author herself:

           Here are some of the other Mom Bloggers waiting in line to get their books signed.

I walked out of Barnes and Noble so happy to have had such an exciting night out. I feel so blessed to have such a fun-loving group of blogger friends, and i'm grateful that this little blog of mine has brought me together with these amazing women. Thanks for a great night girls, and a special shout-out to Audrey of Mom-Generations for putting the dinner together for us!
