D'oh! The Galleria closes at 6 on Sunday, so we'll have to try for Saturday. I hope that still works. Jewel can't get there until after 5 PM, so we'll plan on around then. Who else can come? I know Scarlet/Crimson is in, and Jewel is too.

So the meetup is on Saturday the 10th now; correct? My shoot is at 1pm in Dallas so I should be able to pop by.

Oh! Sounds fun! I'll see what I can do!

Well my parents weren't too thrilled with the idea. They did agree, however, that if it was a convention or like official-type gathering, they'd let me go. I mean, you guys can go ahead but I'm gonna think about planning a gathering. Maybe renting out a place or planning a party at a rec center? We can meet and swim and I think it'll help both my parents and any others with similar problems feel more comfortable then.

So Jewel, you're out? Well we could have had it earlier on Sunday if you weren't sure you could make it. Now I'm not sure what we should do--I probably shouldn't have posted a date in the topic.

Yeah I'm out. Hey, I'll make a new thread about the gathering. I'm thinking about local rec centers though so it's not as crowded but it might be a tad farther for some of you guys. The good thing about rec centers though is you can swim in the middle of winter :)

@ Jewel - I seriously don't understand what the problem is with the informal meeting first. Are you not allowed to go out alone to a public place? I thought you were almost 18; I'm sorry if I got that wrong. I'm just confused why a more private rec center would be more ok than a public mall for a first meeting.

My parents are concerned with me meeting someone I know from a forum, normal over-protective parents. I talked to my mom about it and I said that if it was more of like a convention, would it be okay, and she said yes. I don't know why, but she preferred that. I can ask her again, because I'd rather go to Galleria first, and I told her she could come with me. I'm not exactly sure her reasoning.

Well once we have more of a solid date/time/who's coming, she'll probably feel better.

We had a solid date and time. I understand things come up, just next time please don't commit and get us to work a schedule around you if you are not sure you can make it.

I'll talk to her again, but I'm sorry, I didn't realize she'd have such a big problem with it. :( Sorry if it left a mess, I'll try my best to make it. Scarlet, you make a good point so I'm gonna bring that up :)

Ah my rehearsal schedule just shifted. You can go ahead and make it earlier if you'd like, I won't be able to make it anyways. Sorry for any inconvenience I caused and also sorry if anything I said last night seems odd, I was really tired and stressed.

I understand being tired and stressed; we've all been there. I do think maybe earlier on the 11th would be better, but I'm not sure. I hate to keep moving things around--I'd like to get something set in stone so it isn't so confusing. The galleria closes at 6 on Sundays. How would 2 sound for everybody?

08-30-2011, 02:45 PM
2pm on Sunday the 11th would work well for me. Have a tight-timed commission to make that needs to be shipped before I head to NOLA on the 15th so might not be able to stay long at all but I'd be there!

I may be able to attend a Galleria meet up on Sunday, but I am not sure as I have to work part of Sunday. Where in the Galleria?

09-08-2011, 03:32 PM
I'm 100% for sure in now; my photoshoot got cancelled for Saturday so now I have a full day of sewing. As for where to meetup I'm not sure where the best place is. I know there are tables and chairs outside of Starbucks in the center of the mall; would that be a good place?

Yes, let's plan for Starbucks. :) I'm excited!

09-10-2011, 02:56 PM
Ok, 2pm at the tables outside of Starbucks in the Dallas Galleria. :D Yay!

09-10-2011, 09:07 PM
Have fun you guys!

09-10-2011, 11:05 PM
So is anyone besides Taylor & me going to make it out?

I would love to, but its just not possible for me right now... sorry guys

09-11-2011, 04:26 PM
Well I've been here for a half hour & no one showed. Headed home.

EDIT: And right after I wrote that Taylor showed up! :D We had a GREAT time; had some yumymy Starbucks drinks, did some shopping at Lush & generally hung out! <3 Hope to see more of you next time! <3

Yes, we had a wonderful time! Church ran long and my schedule was way, way behind, and the Galleria is about an hour from me--which is no excuse, really. I feel terrible for making you wait, Scarlet, but I had SO much fun hanging out with you. Let's hope more of us can get together next time!

Perhaps it would be easier to plan from Facebook. Our Texas Pod has a page now.
