The original Tampa Bay area "get together" thread was created in July 2012 after a great group of BCO sisters met for lunch. This is a new thread intended to carry on our tradition of support, companionship, fun, and camaraderie - as often as we can all get together! We welcome familiar faces and new friends alike - if you have found this thread and wish to join us - please do!

Here is the link to the previous thread - it contains a lot of love, and we thank MondaysChild for her leadership and management of our "get togethers" to date.

Lunch was so fun! Loved meeting you all!! I've got a few photos of us I'd like to post here but thought I'd check with you all first to see if it's ok.

I really scored with my bra shopping after lunch. Normally it's so hard to find my size - 40 Extra Flat, but I found 5 beauties! I boycotted Dillard's because they had some lame Susan Koman promotion going on but found 2 on sale at Penneys and 3 super cute ones at Macy's. Finally, cute bras to wear

Ladies - I think we will reschedule the lunch we had planned for Mar. 25th for a later time, when we can include everyone. Can you give me some feedback on either Apr. 8th or 22nd?

I get the dumbass award - I can't make the 8th - will be out of town at a military retirement for that entire weekend. The other possibility is April 23rd? That is a Sunday and we could meet a little after lunch to allow for anyone with Church commitments - and yes, I did check my calendar, lol! If that doesn't work, I am more than happy to coordinate the 8th for everyone, but I will be absent.
