Blog Crossover

Day 124

Last night we had a small blog meet-up with some fellow bloggers.

My cousin and fellow blogger Jaimee and her family came over to my sister and fellow blogger's home and we had a nice live visit. My wife and fellow blogger and my family attended as well as my mom and future fellow blogger. (Yes, I like to say 'fellow blogger')

Fellow bloggers Jennifer, Jaimee, Me and Kristy

I didn't have many expectations when I started this blog. It was merely an attempt to chronicle my life so Logan can get to know me. Like he was reading a personal journal. But it has grown way beyond what I initially thought. Through this challenge I have gotten to know so many people and really get to know them. When we visited with Jaimee and her family it felt like we have known each other for years. Well, I have known them for years but this time I felt like I really knew them. They are more friends than just family. It was fun to see her cute children Matteah and Casey in person. Such sweet and fun kids. Daniel and Jaimee were fun as always but it seemed different this time since I felt like I have been in their daily lives for the last couple of months. It was awesome and I wished we lived closer so we could do this more often. Thanks for driving from Colorado Springs and up to Logan so we could spend some time together.

While it was great to talk with them it made me miss the rest of the Case Clan. So if any members of the Case Clan are reading, it is not too late to take my challenge and BLOG! This has been a rewarding experience. You have been put on notice.

One thing I did notice about this whole blogging thing I started. I am the ONLY guy doing it. I guess I should count myself lucky. I have gotten to know some awesome women. Which reminds me, I am not only pleased about getting to know my side of the family but that also extends to my sister-in-law and fellow blogger Andrea and her family and also to my friend across the ocean and fellow blogger Sarah and her awesome family (which should be expecting a new shiny member any moment!). It has been fantastic getting to know you folks too. So how many people are doing this challenge anyway?

Thanks Jennifer for hosting a great blog meet-up.

Andrea it is your turn next. ;)


  1. I was thinking last night that yes, you are the only male blogger... I talked to Justin, who has many, many childhood stories and actually mentioned blogging. Then we had a big laugh because it would likely have to be R Rated...

  2. Let's do it!

    We really should get a count of how many people are doing this challenge. I bet its more than we think. It has really taken on a life of its own.

    Good work on coming up with such an awesome and irresistible challenge!

  3. Matt it has been fun. It is weird I probably wouldn't know you if I passed you on the street, but I know you enjoy a good Barry M concert.

  4. I suggested we get together when Steven can cook for us.

  5. Matt- it was seriously so great to see you guys again. I am very grateful you started blogging daily not only because I have gotten to know you so much better but also because it motivated me to do the same thing for my kids. I think our kids will have such an awesome gift from us with our stories in our own words... you are very inspiring (obviously!) and I agree- more people need to get on this blogging train! Love you guys so much! Come visit us soon!

  6. I am so jealous that my sister and her family got to come out and see you guys! I wish I could have been there! As for your challenge about doing a blog...I know I should probably get on the ball and do one! Anyway, on behalf of the rest of the Case Clan - we miss you all!
