Weekly Roundup: Hot Blogger Calendar Photo Shoot Edition

Three months ago… this crazy idea got started.

Two months ago… 359 people were nominated for it.

Last night… 20 people from all over the country drank rather a lot of tequila in celebration of it.

Today… 12 of the 24 certified Hot Bloggers rocked the camera like they were born to, with photographers Bill Wadman and Meg Wachter and makeup artist Jillian Villafane making them look like the supermodels they are.

Amy , Britt , Ces , Dave , Erika , Jill , Jim , Josh , Katja , Peter , Riese and Shawn … you guys looked amazing and are amazing. How lucky am I to get the chance to meet people who are so great (in addition to being so hot, of course)? The only possible way it could have been better would have been if your 12 counterparts had been there too. But we’ll see their gorgeous photos shortly. And until then, it’s been a fabulous weekend of hijinks with my partner in crime, Jane (and her completely wonderful parents Barry and Sharon).

Guys… thank you for coming from all over the country to be a part of this. It’s an honor.

Everybody… you’ll have to wait to see the real portraits in the calendar, but in the meantime, check out my Flickr for some shots of the past two days.

Edited to add: also check out Shawn’s photos!

And Amy’s!

And Sharon’s! – And her eloquent post about the shoot – done on her birthday, nonetheless!

And Dave’s! And his post! And Poppy’s photos!

And Jane’s!

And Jill’s post about the shoot!
