3 Monkeys and 6 Bloggers...

...equals one fantastic time! This past Friday, we had an STL Blogger Dinner at 3 Monkeys. After driving through hella traffic, can I just say that I'm so glad I don't fight traffic every day and even when I think I am, it's nothing compared to the city, I finally made it there parking like 4 blocks away.

As we sat down, we quickly ordered some Spinach Artichoke Dip-half price appetizers baby!!! It was delicious. I made a reservation for 10 but some people cancelled so we ended up with six so we offered to move to a smaller table so our waitress could take another table. All was good with the waitress then Heidi asked how big the 12" pizza was and it went down hill from there! Aimee ordered her pizza first and got the 16" incher which was only $2 more than the 12" so she could take some home to her hubby. I didn't want to look like a bad wife so I also ordered a 16" as did Sarah. Heidi was the smart one that got the 12" because that would have been plenty for dinner AND some. Here's our table of assorted pizza:
Once the pizza arrived, we didn't have any table space!!! So we had to make a few adjustments, box up pizza BEFORE we ate and stack a few plates but once all the work was done...it was pretty darn good! When I called Matt to tell him I was on my way home and I had dinner for him, he was pretty excited. He knows I usually bring the leftovers home for him and no, Heidi, he didn't get in trouble for eating them!

As usually, the conversation was great and the women at the table were amazing. I love having such great friends that I simply met through blogging. Although we were bummed that a few people cancelled, I'm excited because that means we get to do another one soon so they can come play too!!!

Here's Angie, myself and HeidiRandall, Sarah and AimeeSo thanks for a fun evening ladies! Can't wait to do it again.

You left out the best part - the yummy tomatoes and peppers from your garden that you brought for everyone. Delish!

How fun!! And those pizzas are huge!

These were all blogging friends!? how cool!! That's so great that you have met people through blogging. I have only met one girl (besides the ones I knew already) and it was so cool. Looks like a really great time was had by all!

Another place I haven't eaten at. Too many restaurants in StL, so little time...

Sounds like so much fun! I've never really been able to connect with bloggers around my area (well, at least bloggers I would WANT to go out to dinner with!) so I'm super jealous. ;)
