Ok, sorry, I sounded like Gomer Pyle there for a minute. :)
Last Monday when I got back from the beach I had an e.mail. Well ok I had like 400 e.mails. Most of them spam and undeliverable's. (I think I am sending spam :( if you have gotten one from me I am sorry, I am working on it)
Where was I? Oh yeah e.mail. I got this e.mail from a sweet girl asking if I would come to her Mom's surprise birthday party. Being one who doesn't want to miss a party, I said sure!!!
Now this was not just an ordinary party for me, nor was it just any Mom. This was one of my blog friends, that I had been wanting to meet! I had been invited to the surprise party for my friend Southern Seven. I was so excited!!
I sort of felt like I was going on a blind date. I knew who she was, I read her blog, I commented her, but I had never actually met her. She is such a savvy shopper, I think she could find a good deal with her eyes closed! She is also one mean yard sale shopper. I have told her before, but she is going to have to take me to these yard sales she finds. I think its a gift she has, because I never can find that good of stuff. She's also pretty crafty. She made an awesome headboard for her daughter out of a coffee table. It is the neatest thing. I am now on the look out for a coffee table to convert. :)
Before I left I told Logan, "If I don't come back, you know they were serial killers or something" :) I was just kidding. ;)
When I got there, I felt right at home! She has a such a wonderful family and wonderful friends! I was very honored to be there. :)
Bless her heart, I know she had to be tired. She had just gotten back from a anniversary cruise to Mexico. After standing for about two hours in the customs line (aren't you glad you did not by that pottery you wanted!) and traveling all day, she was a super host! I hope you got some rest Sunday.
So here is a picture of myself and cutie poo Southern Seven!
I am so glad I got to meet you and I know we will get together again. I hope you have a wonderful day on the 11th!
