THOUGHTS????

Brent & I were talking this weekend - talking about how awesome it is to have all of these "friends" all over the country and beyond the US as well. You know - YOU! Although we've never meant YOU (blog lurkers/stalkers/and frequent open visitors) in person, we still consider you our friends. While talking about it with Brent, I got to thinking about how awesome it would be to actually "meet - in person" the individuals that I converse with on a daily/weekly basis stemming from the AGD blog. Then it hit me!!!
WE NEED AN AGD GIRLS MEET & GREET WEEKEND SOMEWHERE!
Brent said that a "meet & greet" sounded Corny so I told him to help me come up with a better slogan or title for this little rendezvous. Therefore, that is still in the works.
In the meantime, I'd love all of your feedback on setting up a great weekend - just women - no kids - no hubbies - somewhere in the US. It would need to be a centralized location somewhere in the USA and one that was somewhat inexpensive to fly to for those needing to arrange flights. My first thoughts are Texas, Florida, Chi-town (Chicago), etc. Do any of you have any great hot spots that would have good hotels and lots of shopping and fun for the women who were able to attend? Preferably, we'd need to find one hotel that we could all get rooms in and then have nearby restaurants and shopping that we could divulge in should we need to.
I envision late night chats and giggles amongst us women, "get to know you" games, pajama parties in the rooms, gift give-a-ways, pictures galore, and friendships - new and old - blossoming from this event. My main goal right now is just to see how many would be interested and when you think the best time to do it would be. Once we know if anyone even wants to embark on this girlie weekend, then we can plan accordingly from there forward.
I'm all about planning it - should you guys be all about coming. Give me a shout out and let me know your thoughts. Blog stalkers who've never introduced yourself....now is the time to come out and get comfy here. We'd love to get to know you too.
Hugs, Angie Seaman
PS...Even if I know you, have met you, are great friends with you in person already...we'd still love for you to attend this event too.

Dallas is good, Oklahoma City is awesome, too. That's where I'll be living soon and there is a lot to do.

Lurker here...How fun would it be to completely take over Canton? I am in Texas about 20 minutes from Canton and the thought of a swarm of us at Canton just brings a smile to my face :)

I would love to come! I think Chi-town is a good bet, tons of great hotels & restaurants in walking distance...UNLESS I have on a fab. pair of heels then I must hail a cab :)~

Cool idea Ang! I am a tad worried a freaky "stalker" may show but hey thats where the heels will come in handy..not just for looks ya know..tee heee...J/K :)

I hope you all had a great time at the OG, man I am sorry I had to miss this one! I love you girls & that place is one of my FAVS!! Shoot me an email if there is anything I need to know, what to bring etc..
Again thanks for letting me "BLAA BLAA BLAA" the other night.

What a fab idea! I'm not sure I would be able to go, but I'm certainly interested in finding out the details. Depending on where it is, I may be able to work something out. It sounds like it would be "good fun," as my son would say Robin

I would be so happy to do this. I have moved around so much for my husbands work that I have never had the opportunity to make true girlfriends. I love being a SAHM, but I really could use some girlfriend time and conversation. You are still my daily inspiration, Angie!!

Hi Angie

This is an awesome idea!!! My friends from elementary school and I try to do something like this annually. You remind me a lot of my friends and I when I read your "girls nite out" blog. What fun. Not too many people can say they keep in touch with people 30+ years ago.

Anyway I am very interested in the "AGD Girls Meet & Greet" I'm thinking Chicago.....loads of fun. My friends and I have done weekends there and have always had a blast. Florida would also be nice, you can usually find great flight deals to Orlando or Ft. Lauderdale. Anyway, when were you thinking of having this weekend? My family and I are going to Florida from June 30th to July 15th, so I'll need a little time to re-coop from that vacation. My daughter is participating in AMTC (Actors, Models, Talent Competition) She was picked for her unique look to model by a scout....so we are going to try our luck down there. Then the fam and I are going to Disney for a week.

Let me know what kind of a response you get from all and when you are thinking about having this take place. Also, if you need any help searching for flight deals, let me know.....I'm a sahm so I am always on the computer.

Take care and have a wonderful weekend!
