On Saturday morning,
I had the pleasure of meeting
Vicki and Barb of Curly Willow DIY
and Stacey of A Sort of Fairy Tale Girl blogs.
(Photo above: Vicki, Barb, Stacey and me)
I have never met them before.
We had a blast.... instant sisterhood.
I have to share with you
something so funny.....
Here was the scene,
Vicki and Barb
got to the very busy
breakfast only restaurant
on Saturday morning.
They were waiting for
Stacey and me to arrive separately.
(Barb and Vicki are old friends and share their blog.)
I got there and walked
into a very crowded waiting
area of the restaurant,
people sitting and standing
and waiting all around us.
(Each one holding their vibrator, I mean restaurant pager.) LOL
I walk in
and casually look
around the room....
and with a big bright smile,
Vicki says, "Alison?"
Yes! It's me!
She jumps up and hugs me,
and introduces herself, and then introduces
her dearest friend Barb, who also hugs me,
and we were all smiling and saying "so nice
to meet you".... and "how are you"....
etc. etc. etc.
Well, you can imagine...
the people waiting in the room ---
the observing strangers,
were all looking at us and wondering....
what on earth?!?!?
(We were acting like
long lost best friends,
who had never met!)
It was hilarious, really.
And to make it even funnier,
we were holding little trinket gifts
to give to Stacey because it was
and even though
we had never met her
we decided to bring her small tokens
of friendship to give to her
since it WAS her birthday
and she was coming to meet us,
her faceless blogging buddies!!
more hugs and laughs and
"so nice to meet you's"
and by the way,
more hugs and laughs...
and I kept wondering
what on EARTH is
going through the observers'
minds trying to figure us all OUT!!!!
Too funny, as you can imagine.
I ♥ my blogging friends.
(Just learned how to do THAT from my blogging friend,
Sue of Sullivan and Murphy blog! Thanks Sue!)
