Loopie-pa- WHAT, you ask? Loopiepalooza. 2009, to be exact. Or 2nd annual.

Let me explain. Back in 2006, after I had Nicholas I joined some internet forums and 'loops' that were dedicated to boys clothing...specifically Gymboree and Janie and Jack brands. These loops were used to buy and sell our used clothing and talk about our kids. Soon some of us decided to just start a little group where we could discuss our lives outside of our kids. I mean, we were all people with lives BEFORE we became mommies! So, that started sometime in 2007. Anyway, last spring (March 2008, to be specific) a group of 10 of us got together and met up in Houston, Texas for a long weekend. We ate, shopped, ate, talked, and in case I didn't mention it- we ate some more! That was the first Loopiepalooza.

Well, this year, we did it again. However, we had 18 ladies this time. Again, we met in Houston from a Thursday until Sunday. Ladies drove and flew in from all corners of the country! Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Washington, California, Wisconsin, North Carolina, Georgia, and of course, Pennsylvania. A great time was had by all. Again...we spent our time eating, shopping, eating, talking, and eating some more! This group of ladies are AMAZING. We have a wide age group, come from various backgrounds, but our bond of friendship is one I am blessed to have.
