OZ HLB blogger + reader meet-up: madison chapter

by Kim on March 1, 2013

It’s officially March! I have plenty of reasons to be pumped about this:

–I’m seeing MUSE in 6 days with 6 incredibly cool people.


–Mason’s FIRST BIRTHDAY is the 21st. WHAT??

ST. PAT’S! A very underrated holiday. In addition to drinking green beer, I might also run a Shamrock Shuffle (weather permitting, of course—winter running and I don’t really see eye to eye).

–This year, EASTER is in March too! I’ve already gotten these hands on some Cadbury eggs (aka best candy on the planet) and don’t think they’ll be my last.

MARCH MADNESS. I get into it. And it’s feeling like a good year. #perfectbracket

–Spring begins, which (more importantly) means we’re one step closer to SUMMER.

And there’s one more thing that was just added to the list…

Healthy Living Blogs has asked me to organize a blogger (+ reader!) meet-up to go see OZ!


If you haven’t heard, HLB has started a virtual book club, and giving the timing of this Franco-mazing movie release, they chose to kick off the club by reading The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (the original). You’re encouraged to read the book (which is available for free download from iTunes) if you want, and if you’re a blogger, you can also write a review on your blog and link it up on the HLB site!

But regardless of whether you’re into the book (confession: I haven’t read it), everyone (bloggers AND readers!) is invited to the Oz meet-ups that are happening nationwide!

If you live in or around Madison, WI and want to join me and some other cool healthy living bloggers (like Kelly!) to watch this movie, please RSVP by sending me a note through my Contact form.

It’s going to be awesome.

You’re also invited to meet us at a nearby coffee shop prior to the movie, to say hello, drink something tasty (the coffee shop I’m thinking of has wine too), and gossip about James Franco.

When you contact me, please let me know which date works best for you (evening showings):

–Wednesday, March 13

–Friday, March 15

–Neither of those days work…but this one does! <suggestion>

Once I tally the results, I’ll let you know the final date and will also, ya know, tell you which coffee shop/theater to go to and stuff.

If you’re not a Madisonian, there’s still time to move here before the meet-up!!

Or…I guess you could check the HLB site for a meet-up in your area.

Do you plan to see Oz?

2D or 3D?

Have you seen Wicked?

I love Cadburry mini eggs, possibly my favorite chocolate! My stepbrother was in Wicked so I was fortunate enough to get to see it a few times!

I love the shamrock shuffle in Madison!


Kim March 2, 2013 at 10:05 am

I’ve never done it, so this’ll be a first (if it happens)!

Wicked is my favorite broadway play. I’ve seen it 4 times. It gets better every time! I wish I lived in WI so I could come to this :( I’ll have to see it with my mom instead!

I’ve only seen Wicked once, but now you have me thinking I need to see it many more times. How does it get better?? :)
