Aiming Low is a "a group of women/moms/bloggers/friends/writers that believe that there’s no shame in serving mac and cheese for dinner three nights in a row, Febreeze was created to make a questionably clean shirt smell ready-to-walk-out-the-door-fresh and that slack isn’t a way of life…it’s an art.
So, if you’re tired of being told that you should be better than you are…a better wife, a better mother, a better cook, a better housekeeper, a better friend, a better all-around-person…this is your place."
No one has actually told me that I should be better than I am but I sorta feel like I should. But that's a topic best served with a martini on a shrink's couch.
Back to the subject. I was catching up on my blog reading last Tuesday night. Went to see what sort of shenanigans by beloved Barefoot Foodie (I love her, click here to read all about that) had written about and I see that she is in NYC. I live in NYC! So I scramble to figure out why she is here and where can I see her, and I discover that she is here for an Aiming Low blogger mixer thing sponsored by HP.
Let's skip to the good part because I know you are getting bored and I don't want you to go yet! The point is I went. I knew no one there so I got a cocktail to keep me company and proceeded to sit with some strangers :)
I had one drink and was already plastered. Enter Barefoot Foodie! I enlisted a girl from my table (whose name I was too drunk to remember now) and we went up to Brittany (Barefoot Foodie) and proceeded to
Here is a picture of me (on the right, pink shirt, drunken smile, holding Brittany a little too close for her comfort), Brittany (in the middle scared shitless) and the girl whose name I can't remember (just realized from the pic that her name tag says Molly) but I do know that she had no baby and no blog but she won an mini HP laptop.
This pic belongs to Barefoot Foodie. I snagged it from her Flickr without permission :)
I also got to hang out with Bay from Queen Mother Blog. She took a pic but is taking forever to send it too me! She is super sweet and seriously, she looks like she is 12! And that is a compliment! I look 25 going on 40 because I never sleep.
Also talked for a little bit with Shauna from Is it 5 o'clock yet?. She is part of the Aiming Low crew and hysterical. I wanted to ask for her phone # so we could talk but I think that might have been ackward.
But as the night unwinded and 1 Cosmopolitan became 1 Cosmo+ 2 Appletinis, use mommy bloggers got a little crazy!
I'm not going to share all the details. All I can say is that VDog is amazing and probably doesn't remember me! My cheeks hurt so much from laughing at Every. Word. that came out of her mouth!
And my all time favorite of the evening... LaughMom! She proclaimed to anyone that would listen that I was her new best friend and together we terrorized the living crap out of one of the HP Printer guys. Let's just say his man nuts have gone into hiding.
I had a FANTASTIC time with every on at the Aiming Low thingy. I feel totally sorry for all of you that didn't get a chance to go and hang out with us!
P.S. Forgot to mention Angie from A Whole Lot of Nothing. Super sweet and funny.
P.P.S. HP, if you're reading. You will get no plug from me!!! Rumor has it there was a gift card in the swag bags... Well, NOT IN MINE! You made me fall in love with your printer and I can't get one of my very own!!!
