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.

OK, here is my dilemma. We do not have a date in April that can include everyone - nbnotes, and galsal can't make the 22nd or 23rd, galsal and special k can't make the 8th. Do we want to postpone until May and look for a better date for all? April 8th would be AnnAlive, Lee7, nbnotes, and MondaysChild, the 22nd would be AnnAlive, Special K, Lee7, MondaysChild. Both of these dates could potentially include others who read along but have not specifically indicated availability for these dates, and who decide to join us. Thoughts?

I would be fine with waiting until later/May to try to include everyone. It might be worth just seeing if there is a date in May that would work or if there is the same problem then. I could do April 29/30, May 20/21 or 27/28 (this is Memorial day weekend which could be bad for some if traveling, etc.).
