Living Room Sessions...

Yesterday, I was sitting on the couch reading my Twitter feed and Dave was reading it over my shoulder. He said, "Who is that? Is she a friend from high school?"

I said, "No. I don't know her. We're just blog friends."

Dave: "Blog friends???? What does that even mean??"

Me: "It means we read each other's blogs and have gotten to know each other via blogs. I mean, obviously we've never met in real life.....yet."

He looked at me, completely puzzled, actually bewildered, and said, "You're living this entire 'blog' life and It's like I don't even know you!"

HA! I laughed for a good 5 minutes. I would totally have coffee chips and queso with my blog friends and then when he asks if I really know you I can say YES!

Tyler and I have almost identical conversations. Im always saying "this one girl I know". How do you know? Well I read her blog..
And he just shakes his head. He thinks Im weird! I would totally have chips and queso with you anyday! ( I actually- its a fact- could eat chips and queso for every meal. Every day. )

OMG no one gets it unless they blog! I always say this!!!

Mateya said...

Oh gosh I know, my husband just doesn't get it either. He thinks I'm crazy!

Pray~and~Wait said...

haha! I love it!!!! My husband and I have had this conversation before. Now, he doesn't even think twice...he just thinks we're all "crazy"! :) Love having blog friends!!!

Hahaha. Men just don't understand being interested in other peoples lives!! At one time I was having dreams about blog families I had never met! At least I can say I know you!

Jessica said...

Psst, you should follow me on twitter (@obxwife) -- my husband is the same way! We really do have a "blog" life!

Kate said...

This is so funny and so true!!

I totally feel the same way! I've told people before that don't blog that I almost feel like I know my "blog friends" better than some of my real life friends. I never knew that blogging would form such a community of women. I could absolutely grab a drink with so many of my "blog friends" and I really think it would feel like we've known each other for years!

Hubby and I have the same conversation almost weekly! :)

Kara said...

This is so great! I have these talks often with Cory. We are actually taking a family vacation to meet up with a "blogging friend" this summer. I keep telling him it won't be awkward, I mean I have had lots of chats with this friend and we even call each other twice a month now :) But it will be our first time to meet in real life and we will have our hubbies and kids there! Doesn't it sound crazy!

Alicia xoxxo said...

You hit the nail on the head with this one! Sounds exactly like a convo I had with hubs! I adore my blog friends!!

Annie said...

ha! i love it!!
my hubby is not as kind about blog/twitter friends. he thinks ya'll are a figment of my imagination...he just doesn't understand :(

Liz said...

HAHAHA! (At least he didn't say that about me.) Daniel does that when I show him pics of Kelly's Korner. He's like "who is that". Me: just someone on a blog. Him: Eyes roll back to his spine.

melissa said...

So funny! Boys...they just don't get it!

Kat said...

I swear this exact same conversation happened at my house.

Newlywed and Decorating said...

Husbands just don't get it! :) I adore my "blog friends" :)

annalee said...

Laura said...

That's basically the exact conversation I have with my husband every day. lol. My twitter/blog friends are still my friends...they're just not people I've met!

Christine said...

Vanessa said...

Haha men don't get it. Vito asks me these things all the time. I have real life friends and bloggy-friends. Both who I love!

That is tooooo funny! DW used to tease me about it but I've had so much support through my infertility struggles and we've met so many great people and even couples that he never says anything anymore. In fact, I overheard him defending me to another guy who's wife also blogs and he was making fun of it. Loved that!
