Since Your LL Bean Boyfriend was recently included in Down East’s Best of Maine issue, I had the pleasure of getting to go to their Best of Maine Awards party with all the other winners. What?! So fun! Pretty much everyone there was a legitimate adult with a legitimate business or something, and as most of the time I feel like a tween with a weird internet habit, it was fun to get that all legitimized with an official plaque. See? It’s okay to hang out on tumblr all the time.
With Paul Doiron, the editor-in-chief of Down East. When I got up there to get my picture with him he leaned over to tell me he was wearing an LL Bean Signature suit.
Since my LL Bean Boyfriend was unavailable, my friend Bekah came along since we both love going to parties where plates of small sandwiches are offered to you more or less constantly. Also she was one of the people with whom this whole joke that escalated into a blog started with, so she’s been freaking out with me for quite some time.
Check out more pictures of the winners on the Down East facebook page, and check out the July issue for Down East’s picks (and their readers’ picks) on what’s what in Maine! (You know, for when you’re planning your vacation with your LLBBF. Or the vacation you’re going to take to find your LLBBF. Whatever.)

That time I got to be like a Maine socialite… sort of.
