A Group Get Together in 2008?

I know I just posted (see below) but I want to propose and idea to you all...I have been thinking about this for quiet awhile. I have bounced the idea off of dear Andi and Valerie and both have been very supportive! Many of our blog friends have participated in group a get together (Our Kat and Rhoda just had an amazing time with some of their blog friends!) or have been able to meet a few blog friends one on one. I have been able to enjoy the latter and what a blessing. Because of this I have been toying with the idea of a blog buddy weekend. I am hoping to hear from a lot of you and want to see if any of you would be as interested as I am in having a Blog Babe Blowout. When and where is to be decided and I am hoping to hear from all of you on that as well. Spring? Summer? Fall? Disney World? New York City? Chicago? San Diego? Santa Fe? Dayton, Ohio? Hey. I am spit balling here... Fall or Spring in The Amish Country of Ohio or Indiana...Summer in the Northeast? Spring or Fall at Disney World? Christmas time in San Antonio? Any season at Opryland Hotel in Nashville? San Francisco? Vermont? How about St. Louis? Lots of free things to do and smack in the middle of the country... I hope we can bounce some ideas back and forth and that we will have lots of interest in this! I am willing to handle lots of the hotel arrangements as I have done this for other groups. I will need ideas and likes and dislikes and who thinks they can come and when the majority think would be best to meet, and where. Heck, you could all come here and stay at Rabbit Run Cottage. It would be crowded yes but that could be cozy right? I was just hoping to plant this seed of an idea in your heads..think about it okay? Love to you all...

I love this idea.... First 2 weeks of June would be great for Rusty and I as he is off work then..... If not then, I can fly without him to where ever you all decide to get together... T in Texas

Chris said...

If you all end up in NH, I am here to host!

Nonie Mae.... said...

Dont forget Colorado hehe.. Sounds like fun...

Brenda said...

I would like nothing better than to meet my friends.I love Mountains,Amish,country,flea markets.Summer is okay,but the heat kills me.I will do whatever if it is possible at the time. Would be nice to finda bed and breakfast and get the whole thing hehe.

Andi said...

April in Paris please!!!

Actually I would select New York City as my first choice to meet. Love the Big Apple!!! What I need is a date so I can schedule the time off to make the trip. I'm really happy with anywhere you choose but prefer somewhere close to an airport where public transportation is available. Unless you select Florida then I'll just drive.

Sound like a fun plan for 2008.

Janet said...

Sue,
Now this is exciting. I feel so connected to so many of you already and sometimes it makes me feel sad that we might never meet. But guess what? We might meet, we WILL meet. Anytime or anywhere is OK with me. Let's see...I love California ..ooh, ooh how about Carmel. Yeah pricey I know. I've never been to Florida although I am not a big Disney fan ( there that cat is out of the bag ,LOL). Boston or Providence, someone could stay here. Endless possibilities. Thanks, dear Sue, for coming up with this idea, just when I needed it.
AFA,
Janet

Ooh, ooh, ooh...I vote for Nashville anytime!!!! It would be a drive for me!!!!

It IS a beautiful, fun town that might be a different destination for a lot of you!! (Just trying to get my vote in!! lol)

Andi said...

Oh, oh, oh...I love Boston too!!! You can fly right in...take a taxi to the hotel and stay on the Freedom Trail. It's a great walking city and the train/subway goes everywhere.

Sheila said...

Sue, what a wonderful idea! If I can meet up with you girls, I certainly would LOVE to. If you come to the Chicago area, I can meet you anytime. Otherwise, summer is the best time for us to travel, as the kids are off from school. Probably some nearby state that's close to drive to would be best for us - Wisconsin Dells, Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, maybe even Kentucky or Tennessee, or Branson, Missouri. We were even talking about visiting Minnesota this summer to see the mall of America... just a few ideas.

Sandi McBride said...

Sounds like it would be fun...hope you pull something together! Why not come to Charlotte, the Queen City???

Jenn and Jacqui said...

Sue, how wonderful of you to plant this seed for your feinds to think about, it would be lovely to meet blogging friends!! Suppose Australia is out of the question!!!!! :) Jenn and Jacqui

Kari said...

I think it'd be great fun. Ummmm, let's see...don't really have a preference for location except to say I DON'T FLY so that could be limiting for me and as far as arrangements go, let's see...I don't eat seafood. Yeah. I guess that's about it. lol

Let me know how this goes. And you're not getting a Christmas card from your beloved friend Kari because you haven't sent your beloved friend Kari your address. I'm just saying....

angelsamoungus said...

I vote for Nashville also.

Take care,
Love,
Terri

Terri and Bob said...

I love it too! St. Louis is a mid way place and I could help you organize it!

Pamela said...

I would be delightfully jealous of all you. Hope you make it happen.

Sugar Bear said...

Oh Sue! I LOVE this idea! I would definitely be in. I am open to just about anywhere. Maybe in the Spring? Winter is sometimes difficult for traveling for those of us in snow country!

Jill Gross-LaFaye said...

Nashville would be perfect..because I live here (ha)..but other parts of the country would be a treat! I think Spring is a nice comfortable time of year *anywhere*:)

Rosemary said...

That would be really fun!
Springtime in Paris!!
Come to California, we have great flea markets.
Anywhere would be fun.

Greenie Gardens said...

Sounds like an interesting idea- it would have to be fun with us all there! But where and when? Will we need a football stadium? Grand hotel on Mackinac Island is always kind of fun or Napa Valley is also pretty- neither is cheap though.

Jolene George said...

What a great idea...where ever you decide to do it, I would need way advance notice because it's costly to travel....so I vote for someplace beautiful, yet afforadable. :o)
Can I get your address again? I'm working on Christmas card labels and I can't find it.

Southern Heart said...

I think that is a wonderful idea! (Nashville or StL would be easy for me :)

Cassandra said...

Oh please come to California! I'm close to Palm Springs, San Diego, Disneyland...It would be so fun!

Strawberry Lane said...

What a terrific idea!
A "Susie Q" get together.

How about Southern California? I'll arrange for the beaches and sunshine, you bring the sandwiches and drinks.

Think about it! Great idea, huh?!

justabeachkat said...

I can't tell you how much fun it's been to meet "in real life" so many of my blogging buddies...words fail me. But, it's fun ya'll!

Count me in...whenever, whereever.

Hugs!
Kat

Mockingbird Hill said...

Absolutely! Let me know how I can help pull it all together..

I'd love to do this. Count me in. It would be great to meet fellow bloggers in person.
