Attention Oregonian Bandsters!

On Sunday, 9/26 @ noon I get to meet one of my favorite bloggers, Debi from Hawaii Bound Bandster at the Red Robin in Eugene, Oregon. She and her husband will be riding their motorcycles through Oregon and are going to make a pit stop right here in Eugene! I have never actually met a real-life bandster in person (except for the people who were in the hospital with me, but we didn't really socialize). I've read about the lucky ones of you who have gotten together with someone from the blogs with jealousy in the past so I can't tell you how excited I am!

Also I really, really, really (did I say really?) wanted to do the Chicago BOOBS thing, but extreme poverty got in the way so that's not going to happen.

So if you live to Oregon or Washington or hell Idaho, California, etc., please come! Janelle from Lap Band Living might come. Speaking of Janelle, she and I were emailing yesterday and it turns out we have the same fill doc (we live about an hour apart) AND had our surgery at the same hospital in Tijuana. How did I not know that?

And did I mention I hit Onderland yesterday? I think I'm going to end all my blogs like that from now on ~ lol!

I'm in WA but Eugene is a bit too far for a day trip for me. (6+ hours one way) Have a great time!

I'm in Medford, I wish I could make it but I will be at BOOBS in Chicago. Have fun! :)

Janelle said...

What?! We do? I got a reply from you yesterday but it was blank! It must have had all this cool info in it lol! Yeah, I totally want to come.. I am going to try to make it happen because I haven't met a real bandster, either. Except my mom. Maybe I should ask my mom if she wants to come too?? She has a blog but rarely updates it cuz she sucks! But maybe it would be good for her to meet you guys also, she needs some motivation... so wait you said we got our surgery in the same place, too?? Dr. Ortiz?? How awesome, we are like twin bandsters :P

Janelle said...

And I agree with Tina... we definitely need a name for our Oregon meetup hahah!

I really hope that both Tina and Janelle, as well as anyone else in the area, can make it to the Lunch!!

Maybe we can call ourselves the "Oregon Boobette's"???
