steppin' out saturday {& sunday} + bloggy mom meet-up

last sunday was my first time playing along with "steppin' out saturday" hosted by mandy over at harper's happenings & i had such a good time that i decided to get dressed up & step out not once, but twice this weekend.

last night i had my first bloggy mom blind date.  i got to meet some of my fave local bloggers & guess what? it wasn't weird at all.  it was a total blast.  it was like i already knew these girls! we all knew each others' faces, names, baby's daddies & of course, lots about each others' babies.

we had a really good time.  some tasty apps at rock bottom brewery & then froyo at ce fiore.  each girl is as genuinely sweet as she comes off in her blog & we all had lots to talk about.  there will definitely be a repeat.

so since this is a "steppin' out" post we're supposed to talk clothes & outfit.  you can see mandy & i have the same great taste in mustard color sweaters from target.  go us!

sweater - target
shirt - from local boutique downtown (it's not leather, despite the leathery look)
turquoise necklace - forever 21
jeans {saturday} - nordstrom
skirt {sunday} - ross

onsie - carter's
polo - old navy
khakis - baby gap
shoes - old navy

here i am recycling last night's outfit today for church.  except this time i paired the top with a black skirt.  what?  don't tell me you've never done that.  worn the same outfit back to back with different groups of friends?  oh yeah, we've all done it.

i'm hoping for a dad's edition of steppin' out saturday next week.  i think the blog has been lacking in some testosterone lately so i'll do my best to get sam in front of the camera.  not his favorite place though so wish me luck.

  1. Oh hey, I know Jill! Online, I mean. Wow all your local mom bloggers are INCREDIBLY good looking. It makes me glad I don't have to meet people in person - hiding my double chin is much easier after I edit the pictures.

  2. Love our matching cardigans. We look good. :-) I LOVED meeting you... and you're right it's like I already knew you so it wasn't awkward or weird at all!! I'm so happy you made the trip up. Next time- we'll come down south! :-)

  3. that meet-up was such a good idea! i wish i was close to bloggers that i follow...i don't know of any in colorado! :( how sad! but it is awesome "getting to know" people everywhere else! :)

  4. How fun! That's nice you all got together! You guys look great.

  5. Hello from another N.W. (old) mom :) Love your blog and am a new follower!

  6. So great to meet you! I had a wonderful time with you Mommas!

  7. That looks like so much fun! And all of you have adorable outfits! :)

  8. omg that looks so fun!! I might need to tag along next time, we are in vancouver but I would totally make the drive!! you girls are too cute!

  9. you guys are so cute! loved the sweater :)

    i can't wait for our next get together.

  10. How fun!! You look great! I have definitely recycled and outfit before.

  11. I thought that was Chelsey...

    I'm so jealous you guys all live close enough to get together!

  12. That is pretty cool that you've gotten so involved in the blogging world. And you look awesome! Love your style :)

  13. Yeah. SO jealous of you guys, makes me want to get back to Washington even sooner! When we all met up in September I was so nervous that it would be all weird. But like you said, it was as if we had all known each other for years (in real life, too!)

    Hey, sorry to respond so late...but I wanted to let you know that I think my videos upload to YouTube in good quality because my camera takes HD video. It's a pain to upload because the file type is different than .wmv, but if and when it works I'm always really happy with it. Thanks for the sweet comment :)

    Hope you're having a great day! (and i totally agree with guys are adorable!)

  14. oh amy! im so glad you drove up to meet us! when i got home ryan asked how i liked you and i was like, "oh i love her! she is SOOO FUNNY!" im already excited for the next one too!!!!

  15. You look great! And I love the new hair color! And I'm interested to know what you decide on the stroller strides. They have it out here, but I just don't know if I'm willing to pay for something like that. I got a kick out of that post.

  16. That is soo awesome you all got to hang out again!! The next one should be in Utah or I should just freaking fly out or something! I want to meet you guys soo bad!! :(

    You and Mandy cracked me up with your matching cardigans!!

    I love all the girls in this picture :)

  17. Look at how cute Parker is! He's so happy or you just told a funny joke. I heard he likes those. I'm coming up with my best ones for this weekend! Brace yourself Parker, its going to give you a tummy ache!
