Meeting Butterflymumma! :)

I usually announce my out of town status but I was so sleep deprived, I was on auto pilot writing up what I could and I just simply gave up by Friday as my brain couldn’t function enough to write up a post.

This weekend, I went to Ottawa.  Not very far with only about 2 hours road trip. My friend participated in the half marathon running those crazy 21.1 kilometres.  I’m not much of a runner so its a bit hard to believe running that much.  So, you full marathoners, sshhhh! I’ll elaborate on my weekend in another post later today.

While in Ottawa, I met up with a fellow blogger: the lovely Butterflymumma. And she deserves her own post commemorating this event, don’t you think?

We met up in the hotel lobby where I was staying in Ottawa in the early evening/late afternoon (whatever you call 5ish pm). We walked around a little and had a really nice chat before heading into Byward Market to grab dinner at Empire Bar & Grill.

Here’s what Butterfly had:

Seafood Risotto

And I believe she liked it. 🙂

This is what I had:

Lobster Linguine

Other than the fact that I learned lobster is not something I’d want to eat outside of my own home, this was very delicious. All that seafood was pretty yummy.

We had a nice long chat here as well but Butterfly is a mumma and she did park at some crazy meter with no maximum parking limit so as she puts it her “car will turn into a pumpkin at 9:30”. As we walked back to the hotel and exchanged our real live contact info before parting ways, we did manage to capture a nice picture of ourselves proving we were in fact in Ottawa with the Parliament building, Rideau Canal and a lovely sunset behind us.

Butterflymumma and I

Butterfly was so fun to chat with.  I had a really good time and a lot of great laughs when we shared anecdotes. I loved it! Can’t wait to hopefully see her again soon! I love when blogging friends turn into real live friends and super cool ones at that! 🙂

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I know some of you had a long weekend so this isn’t really that late.

And remember that if you don’t follow Butterflymumma’s blog, well, you might want to.  I linked it up there with her name when I mentioned her the first time. She’s totally amazing 🙂

  2. Hey Kim,

    Holy Zoinkers! Where is my comment on this? How totally unlike me! 😉

    I had a terrific time. I was nervous to meet you, but everything was “okay” the moment I set eyes on you in the hotel lobby. I was amazed we talked pretty much non-stop even though we’d never actually “met” before. So happy to have met you in the flesh at last!!! I think we must be kindred spirits. Hanging out with you felt natural, as if I’d done it before. In another life, perhaps??

    And now I owe you dinner! Talk soon!
