Show & Tell: Mojitos & Chocolate

September 23, 2009

in Show & Tell

For more than two years we’ve had only this.*

But yesterday, one my my dreams came true when I got to share mojitos (mine rummy, hers virgin) with the awesomely fabulous and tiny-tushied CHICKLET!!

We got together again today after work, sharing our other love — chocolate.


We talked as if we’d known each other for eons, which, in a way, we have. We’ve shared nearly 150 posts over at our collaborative project, All Thumbs Reviews.

She is just exactly what you’d expect after reading her blog. With Chicklet, WYSIWYG. And her speech actually IS punctuated with capital letters.

I am fortunate that my organization’s meeting was here at this time. Not just because of the 80 degree days Vancouver has had this week, but also because I got to share a small part of this very special pregnancy with Chicklet.

I hope this makes me a special auntie to Tiny B, and I hope to get the chance to spoil him and introduce him to his internet cousins (Reed will be only too happy to introduce Toddler B to the wonderful world of armaments).

Chicklet and I will have LOTS of reasons to consume mojitos and chocolate in years to come.

Lori is everything you read on her blog too – caring, real, and charming ALWAYS.

However the woman in hot pink pants took a shot that gives me a double-chin, which I don’t believe I have yet, but maybe I do… the vain pregnant chick may need to take more photos with Lori to test that double-chin theory out;-)

Oh Lori – you and Chicklet look amazing. I was so excited when she got pregnant and to know that your connectedness went far beyond words and keys is evidence of Mel’s recent post and question.

Awesome show and tell!!

As two of my most favoritest bloggers e-vah, you are both unbelievably lucky to have met each other. Chicklet, I think this is the first time I’ve seen a picture of you. You are every bit as adorable as I’ve always imagined you to be, and Lori, you look as graceful as ever!

What a great pic! You both look fantastic and like you are having a wonderful time. Of course, with Lavender, Chicklet, mojitos and chocolate, who wouldn’t?!?!

I miss you so much I’m drinking mojitos in your honor. I wish I had someone to drink them with. But, you know when I drink alone, I prefer to be by myself.

And tell chicklet to shut up about a double chin. She looks AMAZING! And you do too Ms. Lori.

Okay, for a minute I thought Chicklet was here in town and I was either going to be really excited, or really upset that I didn’t get an invite! Anyway, so cool that you guys got to hang out in person!

Vancouver + Chicklet = winning combination.
Add mojitos + chocolate? Lori’s dreams come true.

Great picture of the two of you (plus Tiny B). :)

I can’t wait to meet some of my bloggy friends in person. It’s so interesting to put a person together in your head and then meet them in person for the first time.

Have fun the rest of your trip and travel home safely.

The only thing better than mojitos and chocolate is connecting in person with someone you share so much with virtually. Awesome picture, gorgeous ladies!
