The Ladies

This is my mom group, and they are awesome. Unfortunately, most of them live in different states, which makes playdates difficult, so we spend a lot of time on email. Anyway, I’ve mentioned all of them before, but if you don’t know who they are, you should check out their super-genius sites — Eden is at Fussy, Heather is at Dooce, Melissa is at Suburban Bliss, and Alice is at Finslippy. They will rock you.

    Ok, I went through the whole album – I think this makes me a blog-celebrity stalker. So sorry. But you all look like you had a blast.

    Thanks for sharing. I especially like the picture of dooce in her natural habitat.

    I’m with shel all the way.

    Gonna go get knocked up now so I can be your friend.

    For the record, Maggie was our friend before she was a mom. All are welcome, all are welcome.

  • jae Says:

    Looks like an awesome time… one of these years my mom group might get together — if we can all be on the same continent at the same time.

  • slouching mom Says:

    That photo is fantastic. Five incredible women. Nothing better.

  • Rachel Says:

    You ladies have an amazing thing going.

  • Annika Says:

    I totally want to be friends with you guys! (I know that’s kind of weird.)

  • Rebecca Says:

    Wait. Wait. Wait. Who’s the guy with the ears, and is he single?

  • kate Says:

    You’re lucky. All of those ladies are rockin’. My playgroup is ok, but nothing as fun as yours. Plus, my afternoon liqueur milkshake friend is moving across the country this weekend. What a freaking bummer.

  • Colleen Says:

    I’m so jealous. I want a group of friends like yours!

  • Amanda Crabmom Says:

    Crabmommy salutes the blogmatriarchs. As one new to the scene I admire the fortitude, the wit, the blogliciusness abundant at your table. Your collective cup runneth over. How nice it must be to meet one’s blogpals in the flesh after all the online bonding. It must also have been a bit surreal when you first clapped eyes on one another and heard each other’s voices and such.

  • Joe Says:

    Very cool. You look like you all had a wonderful time. One of you also looks like she could be a serial killer.

  • fully operational battle station Says:

    Can I just say that your child is SO CUTE. I can almost smell the sweet little baby smell just by looking at him. He is too cute.

    Good job on that.


  • Jenn Says:

    But, yeah. The guy with the ears. Hawt.

  • Maya Says:

    I have stumbled upon all of your blogs/websites and am so thankful! Being a new mom it’s great to read through all of your thoughts.

  • Crystal Says:

    What utility was used to display the pictures? So cool!

  • emily Says:

    More like a Mom Supergroup…like the Traveling Wilburys…hmmm, there’s a pun in there. ;)

  • smallstatic Says:

    Good for you for getting together and starting to promote each other in a more organized and cohesive manner. From the blogging in real time of your weekend together, to the cross referencing of each other on your sites, you ladies are TOTALLY going to own the internet. FM won’t know what hit ’em. Best of luck.

  • Kat Says:

    Oh you were in Monte Rio! One of my favorite get aways…who can resist that pink elephant!?

  • WendyP Says:

    Awww…instead of friendship bracelets, they have matching computers.

    I read all of your blogs before I knew that you were friends. Can I be a groupie? I won’t try to sit with you at lunch or anything.

  • Christin Says:

    You guys are just the cutest thangs.

  • Pete Dunn Says:

    Hey look… it’s my entire blogroll.

  • aimee/greeblemonkey Says:

    It’s like Supernova of the blogging world. Which one of you is Tommy Lee?

  • ali Says:

    hottest. mom. group. ever.

  • Melanie Says:

    I am so jealous of your mom group! I love that you are all sitting there with laptops out – such dedication!!

  • Maggie Says:

    The program I used to make this photo thingy is called Pictobrowser. It’s super, super easy to use. Do it!

  • BOSSY Says:

    Bossy is so jealous and she’s sure you all had an excellent gathering. Next time, though, make sure one of you brings a camera! Gah it would be fun to see even one photo! :)
