Blog Love - My Wooden Heart

Monday, February 1, 2010



Last week, Kim from My Wooden Heart came to Vegas with her boyfriend Andre. We had been tweeting back and forth for close to a month about getting together when she was in town and then before you knew it, our big blog date had arrived. I was, of course, excited and a little nervous. I had only had one blind blog date prior to this and even though it was a smashing success, it's still a little unnerving to meet a stranger you've connected with on the interwebs. I figure it's similar to a first date - meet in a public place and hope they're not crazy.

Good news, folks. Kim and Andre were not crazy. (At least, not in a bad way!) They were sweet as pie. Honestly. Just two of the kindest, most genuine people. Excited and full of life. LOVE them.


How can you not love these two?

First up on our date, meet up at the Hard Rock and venture over to The Joint to see Phoenix. I have been loving this band for a while now and just from reading Kim's blog, I knew she would want to see this show. Now let me be perfectly honest, I was not in the world's best mood before the show and knowing I was about to meet new people was stressing me out. (I mean, I wanted to be as charming as I am on my blog. I kid, I kid. Sort of.) Here's the fantastic thing about Kim and Andre, they just immediately put me at ease and put a big ol' smile on my snarky face.

And that was all before the music started.



The show was fantastic. We danced, we sang, we giggled. We drank. We drank a little more. We took photo after photo. Kim and Andre jumped up on stage (along with everybody standing near the front).





Then, not wanting the evening to end, Jenner and I took our new friends downtown. The Griffin. The Beauty Bar. More hilarious stories from the Canadians who are taking over Hollywood. I wasn't sure it was possible to like a couple I just met this much, but - as it turns out - it is.

Music. Laughter. New Friends. It was a night to remember and hopefully to repeat very soon.

  1. I know exactly what you mean. I have my first blind blogger date this sunday. I'm meeting with an uber cool girl for Heavy Metal Aerobics at an art studio by my house. But I guess what better way could there be to meet a superstar blogger than sweating in a torn-up alice cooper t-shirt? What have I done...

  8. Phoenix is so good! I'm really glad we met before the blog phase. Had I continually contacted you on twitter, and STG about how we MUST make it happen in Vegas, I just somehow see the odds stacked against me.
