The wedding is sometime in 2035 and you're all invited

Archer: I must admit, this is my first blind date.
Thalia: Yeah, mine too. I can't believe our moms, setting us up like this.
Archer: So, uh, what do you want to do?
Thalia: Um...I guess we could compare feet or something.

Thalia: Say, those are pretty nice feet.
Archer: You don't think they're too big? I get 'em from my mom.

Archer: I can't help but notice your
President Poopyhead T-shirt. I take it you're also a democrat?

Thalia: You drool too? No way, me too!

Archer: So then the baby says to the bartender,
"what do you mean you don't serve minors..."

Archer: Um, mom? A little privacy here?
Thalia: Mom, you're like, TOTALLY embarrassing me.
Go back to trading birth stories, or whatever.

(Thanks, Rebecca, for making my first in-person blog contact so enjoyable that Nate had to call me and yell at me to get the hell back to the hotel already because it was way past the baby's bedtime. Bad mommy. Great afternoon.)

I woke up my entire household with laughter. If Thalia has inherited your funny bone in her left foot, we'll all be the better for it.

The cuteness is unreal. We were hoping that Archer and Peanut would make a good couple. But he and Thalia look too happy together. Awesome photos. Glad two of my favorite bloggers had a chance to meet one another and have a great time.

I love both the President Poopy Head and the AC-DC shirt - a pair of cool kids in my books.

Looks like you (uh they) had fun.

Way to cute, and yeah, cool kids. :)

Now where can I get me a President Poopy Head shirt? Not for a baby...for me!

Yay for the in person blog contact!!! Did they KISS though?

Ohhhhhh, that is too adorable. I just want to eat them up.

My favorite photo is where Archer is telling his joke. I couldn't help but notice that he is completely captivated with Thalia's Poopyhead T-shirt. Or maybe he's just a typical guy? I hear that they do start young these days.

LOL, well if that's not the cutest thing I have seen in a while....

Did they kiss at the end of the night, or was their first date a wipe out?

So cool, you met a real, live, fellow blogger. I love the dialogue exchange, I hope you write screen plays.

Too cute! My son had a similar encounter back in November, except the little girl, who is 6 weeks older than him, crawled over and tongue kissed him! At least your daughter is modest : )

Archer's face in that last photo goes so well with the caption...
beautiful kids!

Crissy, that little girl who tongue-kissed... uh, did she have dark hair and a cute dimple on her left cheek? If so, my apologies.

Mom101, you are SO good at captioning. Thalia is gonna love these when she's old enough to appreciate them.

I have no idea what kind of traffic your site gets, but I'm guessing after inviting all of us you are going to need until 2035 to save for the wedding.

Wait, this might be a dumb question, but did you fly from NY to LA just to meet Archer? That's one expensive blind date ;)

Yay! You got to bask in the fabulous-ness that is GGC. That Archer is one mad playa! Sounds like you had a great day. I would love to do the bridal "do" on the big day! -heehee

And no first date awkwardness? Wish that I'd known what a powerful icebreaker comparing feet could be, back in the dating days.

And because hearing that your child's adorable never gets old - she is (they are) BEYOND cute. I'm dying here of the cuteness.

All right, my biological clock is now ticking at a thousand decibels. First I feed a real-live baby tonight at my friend's house, then I see all these cute baby pictures online. Oy. I'm helpless against all of this adorability.

The first time we had a little girl over for a playdate, J "fell" on her. It wass hysterical - he clearly just wanted to get close (he probably had no idea why) and, well, got a little too close. They ended up in a heap in a corner of the dining room, where we had to untangle them.

And no, he was not 15 at the time.
