They're all real! And they're NOT 40 year old men posing as cute young thangs either.
Here are the results of City of Dionne's fabulous SoCal Blogger's Lunch:
This is what happens when 6 adorable girls get together for the first time:

Evan sat in the mush pot asking us all what on earth could we blog about. Danni's man Nick impressed us right off the bat by telling us he is designs the environments for video games; they met at the Art Institute, and they dressed like it. Maggi the writer won the door prize. I fell in love with the photographer Bethany. Andrew insisted he didn't have an Australian accent. Eric told stories about his passive aggressive wifely roommate. There was talk of the Bible and how/if to include such topics on our blogs. Sabrina smiled the whole time as I'm sure she composed a very poignant summary of the day's events. Dionne was the perfect host with all kinds of goodies (I'll post later about the gift bags she sent us home with...all donated items from Etsy!). Lots of laughter and discussion about art, inspiration, social networking, and whether or not blogging is nerdy, and I would say it was a good day.And here's one of the best parts. The next morning, husband and I woke up with nothing to do (ah, the life of a teacher) so he announced he too would be starting a blog. Here's what he came up with: Circumstances for Clapping Hands (I particularly like the name). It's about his attempt to find joy in every day; every circumstance is an opportunity to give back praise. Check it out, become a follower, leave a comment for the rookie...it will encourage him, I'm sure!
